Special Ability Cool Down and Re-arm issue - Altris via Discord.

Disarm punch will disarm the opponent but has no mechanic to stop them from instantly re-arming it with a hotkey, perhaps make it so opponent can not re-arm anything for 4 or 5 seconds? or else it is functionally useless.

Also, there is no cool-down for stun punching somebody, which seems incredibly busted because it requires stamina to use and you can just chug total refreshes to stun them over and over

Our implementation appears tobe era accurate. Moving to suggestions for further consideration.

@Liberation @Answer @Naysay*e*r and the rest of you PvP'ers.
So I had a bug filed that said, 1) stun punch needs a cool down so you can't just drink a refresh and keep stun-punching your opponent. and 2) after disarming someone, they should not be able to rearm immediately.
I looked at our code, and compared it to RunUO 2.0 and RunUO 2.6. AI matches RunUO.
So not sure I would call this a bug, but rather a suggestion. (Unless someone is sure these delays should be there.)
I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.

the disarm/rearm delay being instant is era appropriate I think
but I wouldn't mind a delay in reequipping wink

on outlands they changed it to a 30sec cooldown, and renamed it hamstring and slightly different mechanics(irrelevant). its probably where this suggestion is coming from

Stun punch?

yes

kk. What are your thoughts? If I'm era accurate, I would like player buy-in to change it.

those of us from t2a-ren eras, are used to it being on a swing timer cooldown
i have no preference, it still fails too often for my RNG
but every once in a while, i get a clutch stun
having a cooldown on it, i assume it will also have increased rate, instead of 25% chance(i think this is the number)
would force people to use it more sparingly and in high value conditions
as it is now, everyone just spams it while loaded to get a "free" sync

the issue with spamming red pots while stunning, is it drops your spell, with 45 dex you get 3 attempts before you're stam locked and have to chug a red pot for positioning purposes, thus losing your preloaded spell
its not without balance currently, just lucky people
