Wolf shift time

Post by Sam Andersun on Tue Jul 05, 2011 6:10 am

I've recently noticed that during tense combat scenes or something such as someone with a knife or gun not exactly aimed, wolves is human form will quickly shift and pounce on the guy and kill him. Its extremely un-RP that someone can go from being upright, fine casual human can go to a giant, four legged furry war machine in half a second. If you ask me it should be that it takes a wolf atleast 15 seconds to shift, and even after that it should take them awhile to get their bearing and figure out what they meant to do.

Depends on practice, and how many times you've done it. 15 seconds? Hmm this isn't a movie, things are supernatural we don't need a timer. By that time we'd be dead already.

When I shift, I at least run and hide before doing it, others just shift in front of humans and vampires within a few seconds, then kill them because they saw it. :/ I think there should be a time limit on the command /wolfform which freezes the wolf in place for a set time (10 - 15 seconds or something) and maybe they can use learning points to decrease the time that it takes.

15 seconds would be a death sentence. The cast is instant Rudy has already stated no need to change it.

You do realise that even a 5 second cooldown could get us easily killed by vampires. They usually face us in case of a fight, and we'd be very vulnerable if there was a cooldown. Plus it comes with practice, there comes a point where you need no cooldown. We're not based off what you see on movies.


Wolvesa are supposed to avoid crowds and not risk their identity at all.

In Werewolf:The Apocalypse, I've seen werewolf shifting in 2-3 seconds.

No need to add a timer to our shift...would gives us a huge disadvantage. We are already really vulnerable in human form..

You talk about that being as a disadvantage... But how do you think humans cope? I'm not going to let anyone answer it but just think about it.

Locked.
