Supporter Item Suggestion (in General)

CooperTX March 2 2005 10:22 AM EST

As we can see by the tremendous amount of ToJ's out there, a supporter item can be 'un-rare' in some cases. To alleviate this problem perhaps two items can be offered every time there is a change. As a new supporter or existing supporter however, you must pick between the two and are unable to purchase the other item from Jon. An example would be an armor item and a weapon, for example, A Sling of David or a Hauberk of Finrod. It would increase the rarity of supporter items and give more of a strategic choice to the would be consumer.

I like the idea, but the accounting might be more than Jon wants to deal with.

Too, the reason supporter items are not rare is that SUPPORTERS are common as dirt.

Who you calling dirt?

" and give more of a strategic choice to the would be consumer."

Well, one would certainly be favored by most people, everyone will just go for the more expensive of the two (maybe that'd even out once the 'weaker' of the two becomes rare, although I have my doubts).

I think this idea might work if it was somewhat random rather than people having a choice though.

See? I can't even type properly!

On a more serious note - although this might disadvantage people without paypal - howabout a supporter shop? Certain rare items - that would not then spawn. You would be limited to one of each item. That way you could keep some items around for longer. Maybe because of the availability you could make them lesser versions of existing rares, non-upgradeable perhaps?

Nice. I like that idea. Though I'd hope Jon isn't taxed to heavily in the mental sense trying to come up with TWO awesome supporter items. :p
