Subj: Classleads 2017 q4: batch 3

We've just loaded up the third batch of classleads for this quarter. Here are the details:

Dragoncraft
-----------
* Expanding on previous changes, when DEVOUR enters its specialed channeled state (where it becomes much harder to stop), broken limbs and being off equilibrium will no longer interrupt it.

Necromancy
----------
* There is now a short delay between a SOULSPEAR hitting and GRAVEHANDS manifesting in the target's room.
* There is no longer any ESSENCE lost in the transfer via DRAIN, if said DRAIN is carried out either in the MHALDOR ISLE or MHALDOR CITY areas. This required some fairly major changes to how DRAIN functions, so bug any inconsistencies with old behaviour.

Physiology
----------
* EVALUATE without the partial specifier now has an internal cooldown of 1 second rather than an equilibrium cost.
* REAVE has been sped up at all three stages (most significantly at the all 4 tempers stage).
* SULPHUR based homunculi will now afflict with disrupt if their attack drains someone to under 75% of maximum mana.

Seafaring
---------
* WAR GALLIES rate of leakage is no longer set far higher than other ships. This might require further adjustments.

Traits
-----
* EXPERT DIAGNOSER now requires and consumes balance( around 2 seconds). I have enabled free trait switching for the next 24 hours so you can fix your traits if desired.

Weaponry
--------
* You can now THROW items while gripping is up.

Misc
----
* All the various forms of FEAR now cancel tumble before the valid movement checks. So for instance if you rush about in fear but are paralysed/have broken legs/etc, the tumble will now be interrupted whereas previously it would not be.
* TRAMPLE via the ARACHNIDEYE talisman now only breaks two limbs all of the time if the target is prone. Otherwise it will always break one and have a chance to break 2.

Enjoy!
