Should not be able to meditate while drunk

Post by nightshark »

I guess this explains why repeatedly casting poison was the method to gain med rather than drunk-med:

You cannot be holding anything except a spellbook, nor be wearing metallic or bone armor to use it. You also cannot be drunk at the time.

Thanks for this. This is something that has been mentioned before but small issues tend to fall through at times.

This patch note was before the release of runebooks, and you could meditate/cast spells on OSI with a runebook in hand

Going by the exact wording of the note we can see that it makes no mention whatsoever to the state "tipsy". In which i must suggest your point is null and void. As currently (as far as i am aware) you cannot meditate while drunk, but you can while tipsy.

I thought this was the case too but I don't use the drunk macro so I wasn't sure. Not sure if it's a bug or intended, that we can currently med while tipsy.

You can med with leather armor on. It's just slower than without.

med·i·tate/ˈmedəˌtāt/
Verb:

1) Think deeply or focus for a time for spiritual purposes or to relax.
2) Think deeply or carefully about (something).


I tend to think deeply about things when I'm drunk

Mostly about where my life is going and how to get home without paying for a cab
