    US West Temple.

    Since Chris transformed into a Necromancer temple has been destryoed.

    ......untill now.

    im hoping to restore temple on west and get a bunch of new pala to come a participate.

    Temple is a Legit, Non Bm Dueling for paladin of all classes. From Zealots to V/t etc...

    The rules are pretty simple.

    No Life Tap (ie Draculs Grasp under review, not all that bm)
    No Exile
    No CtA (under review since 90% of u use it)
    No Doom (holy freeze is ok just not on that weapon.)
    No Teleport. ( pala are not sorc, therefore we dont teleport)
    No Amp Damage ( pala are not necro no curses)
    No Oak Sage ( pala arn't druids)

    This isn't as bad as it sounds. enigma is fine just dont' teleport. Etc... you can still use ur gear and every pala skill. But those particular items give things that pala usually don't get. arn't allowed.

    Thats pretty much it.

    Kinda simple.

    Anyone up for A Temple Revival?

    I sure am....

    (edit, im not chris so i don't remember all the rules)

    Games are played in Temple / Duel on USWEst NoN LAdder.

    Im in who is next?

    Sounds like a good idea... Chris and necro in the same sentence Still makes me twitch... Also I will not even go to temple to CHAT if CTA and/or dracs are allowed.

    90% of people use teleport and its BM. Also 90% of people use CTA and its BM. Its the same difference. We just need to make sure we are making the rules for everyone... not ourselves ;)

    Let's try to find that thread that chris had going with the rules detailed out, and so on...

    U sure bout the CTA and lifetap thing?... They both seem to defeat the purpose of temple cus it's kind of easy to find a dueling pubbie game with paladins in it. Temple would just be one of those, but private. I say keep the original rules of no lifetap,no cta, etc.

    Weren't we thinking of allowing all character classes in there that followed the rules? I forget.

    I suggest that none of you try to complain about the rules. These are old, established rules and there are more than plenty people that support them. People have already expressed their negative opinions on them, so it's pointless to complain here again.

    Make another thread or something if you absolutely hate these rules. We need this one to see who is in, not on who isn't.

    for the sole reason of allowing more people to play temple, go ahead and allow drac's, I would just run away for five minutes until it wore off (that's beside the point of me never joining a temple game again if they were allowed), and same goes to say with CTA, i would never ever finish a duel if you used it.

    other than that, if any time soon i get my v/t up again, i will play.

    The established temple rules clearly state no curses of any kind, including life tap, doesn't matter what items they are on.

    And there is definitely no CTA.


    Look the purpose behind Temple is manner duels. An experience different from pub duels. The goal of temple is skill duels, not who has +6 bo, doom, exile etc. It's skilled palas using manner pala gear, dueling with honor.

    life tap and cta are not going to be allowed. All of the legit duelers would quit temple, and Chris did not put Lovely in charge. I'll talk to Drew and we'll work this out.

    I'm an old skool Temple dueler. I helped organize the last Temple revival with Diminished Soul (Chris), Bill, Onion, Sexy_Matrix, Marcus, and the other regular Temple duelers. I'm also friends with Drew (Food_Poisoning) who made the Temple rules for 1.10. Temple will not become a private pub game. :rant:

    You could speak to Drew, but there are two problems with that. First, you need to actually find him online, which is a rare occurrance at best, even if you're awake at the times he comes on. Second, I'm not sure how much he cares for playing this game anymore, but his total drop in online time and esentially complete absence from the forums doesn't exactly bode well, does it?

    He said he still plans on dueling. What that means who knows. The point is: he established most of the rules, along with Chris, and they are good rules. We should keep them.

    Your not advacating cta and life tap are you?

    ok ok ok ..i get the picture..


    but chris and i were talking about Drac because the lifetap doens't effect anything in pvp..

    Doens't give massive leetch either...

    So we figured it should be allowed.

    as for CTA i'll aggree that its not allowed.

    and ABSOULTLY POSTITIVLY NO TELEPORT ALLOWED. Even for all you hamerdins...

    What are u talking about. Lifetap helps soooo much!! :rant:

    Ive dueled those pals with dooms, they get me down to about 200 life, then my dracul's lifetap kicks in and I leech MASSIVELY. I regain all of my 2.3k life in at most 3 hits, all the mean time completely turning the tide of the duel in less than 5 seconds.

    Lifetap is horrible, if we allow it it's going to just be another click and hold dueling game. The skilled dueler will lose in the last 3 seconds because the opponent's lifetap luckily casted.

    I'd love to duel you guys again, but definitely NO lifetap. :grrr:

    yeah I have to agree once again. We are trying to be different from the pubbies. Aside from the fact that many of us paid godly amounts of runes for our very nice manner smiter gloves, far more than a 10 x perf Draculs is worth, just so we could duel manner with the best palas on west.

    Yeah we have dueled before in Temple. My char is SaveMe_God. We had some nice duels but I believe I won most. :innocent:

    Then Chris put on his Anti-Casey gear and pwned me until I cried. :rant:
