Sacrificing mobs inconsistent

Recommended Posts

Sometimes, when sacrificing mobs, your god simply will refuse to pick up the phone and you'll get nothing.

 

Quote

 

[01:43:04] You start to sacrifice the venerable scared scorpion.

[01:43:05] You call out to Vynora by all her names.

[01:43:07] You beg Vynora to accept your offerings.

[01:43:09] You ask Vynora for forgiveness if the venerable scared scorpion does not please her.

[01:43:11] You ask Vynora to bless you with her favors.

[01:43:13] You kneel in silent hope.

[01:43:15] You stop sacrificing.

[01:43:15] You stop attacking.

[01:43:15] A venerable scared scorpion is dead. R.I.P.

[01:43:15] Vynora is silent.

 

 

And boy howdy did it take me a while to find the cause of this one. The above log happens if I'm in another god's domain! (Vyn's domain being present and buried, or completely absent, does not change the messages nor outcomes)

 

See, for a long time, sacrificing mobs would use the domain to determine the messages. Take this gem from my logs - I've never been a Fo priest.

[14:38:09] You start to sacrifice the old troll.
[14:38:10] You call out to Fo by all his names.
[14:38:12] You beg Fo to accept your offerings.
[14:38:14] You ask Fo for forgiveness if the old troll does not please him.
[14:38:16] You ask Fo to bless you with his favors.
[14:38:18] You kneel in silent hope.
[14:38:20] You stop sacrificing.
[14:38:20] You stop attacking.
[14:38:20] An old troll is dead. R.I.P.
[14:38:20] Fo is silent.

 

That log was from May 13th so it must've changed since then. It also works this way in WU. Edit: After more log searching, the first time I got "Vynora is silent (excluding the time I spent as a Libila priest) was 31st May. This means the issue was introduced in the Animals Update.

 

On one hand, the change makes sense - why would I sacrifice to another god? Issue is now, the sacrifice's outcomes are still dependent on the domain - all that's changed is the messages, and those messages used to serve as a good quick indicator that the sacrifice would not give favor! Instead, they now leave me wondering "why did vynora ignore my sacrifice"

when you get that message, how much pending favor are you at? it sounds like you're a follower not a priest

3 animals basically maxed me out at 150 (30 x 5)

[19:06:20] You call out to Fo by all his names.
[19:06:22] You beg Fo to accept your offerings.

that brought my max pending favor to 150, and couldn't give more

 

[19:07:49] The aged hardened huge spider is still strong enough to resist your attempts.
[19:07:55] You start to sacrifice the aged hardened huge spider.
[19:07:56] You call out to Fo by all his names.
[19:07:58] You beg Fo to accept your offerings.
[19:08:00] You ask Fo for forgiveness if the aged hardened huge spider does not please him.
[19:08:02] You ask Fo to bless you with his favors.
[19:08:04] You kneel in silent hope.
[19:08:06] You stop sacrificing.
[19:08:06] You stop attacking.
[19:08:06] An aged hardened huge spider is dead. R.I.P.
[19:08:06] Fo is silent.

 

I was already maxed in pending favor; I'm pretty sure that's why fo was silent (just an educated guess)

 

now...since followers can't use favor at all, I think it's probably a bug that we get pending favor, plus it has no timer at all so probably will stick around until I relog. finally started losing favor

ok, did some more testing and I'm as confused as you are lol

 

sometimes saccing gave me silent even when pending favor was maxed out; sometimes it did because I was in the wrong domain...sometimes I got the message that I needed to be in fo domain to sac (being fo follower) and yet sometimes it let me sac in vyn domain and not even a mission for whatever I was saccing (was still an aggro mob tho)

To add to that I don't even remember any time where I got any favor from saccing on my Mag priest or myself as a Vyn follower. Always I see the "<local domaing god name> is silent". I'll keep an eye on my saccings from now on to have some more accurate results.
