An idea...Please be kind (in General)

Since this is change month, I was thinking about things that might be fun to add to the game. One came to mind (pardon me if it has been used before). How about adding a bonus to complete armor get-ups. What I mean is if you equip elven boots, an elven cloak, and elven gloves (all the elven armor)- you get a bonus on your armor. The same for mithril armor. Just an idea. Be kind to me :)

it's not a bad idea, but it won't happen before there are more complete sets than 3

AdminShade May 23 2005 5:54 PM EDT

then you know what to do Jonathan, add more armors :P (j/k)

good idea. can't wait for the introduction of elven helmets, mithril cloaks, mithril boots etc.

AdminShade May 23 2005 5:58 PM EDT

or perhaps a change in names for some items ;)

I had this suggestion with one of the CB1 idea contests. The huge ones when TPTemp started running it.

Yah, equipment sets, ala Diablo 2.

We have Elven gear, now lets get some full on Orcish gear, some barbarian gear, or some more Istari gear.

Elves are great but lets get some more diversity.

There's a side of Jon I've never seen before. Are you all right?

LumpBot May 23 2005 11:15 PM EDT

Lol, I love the idea, it adds more options to be more exact with your character. I do think a "Mithril Cloak" would be rather awkward to wear. Stick with the Shadow cloak or similiar name.

Maybe we are closer to getting that full set of Elven gear I've always wanted. <grin>

an elven dainty cap? comes with pre-cut pointy-ear holes?

I wonder, what type of minion will it be to equipped a set of gears with different penalties and bonuses. Certainly can't be a tank, mage or enchanter.

(this is just a neat speculation, not really an idea for a change)

I thought that minion 'styles' could be made that if you were equipped for that style (including applicable skills), you got certain bonuses and armour penalties would be negated since you are dressed to style.

For example, if you had a Katana, short bow, leather boots, leather gloves, and leather cap, you would get a bonus for the Ninja style consisting of extra evasion, etc.

If you had soft leather armour, leather boots, no hand armour, no helm, and a rapier you would get a bonus for 'rogue' style (including significant melee bonus since you're only using a rapier)

Equipped with only a shield, battle axe or other heavy weapon, and Bloodlust you could be a Berserker and get extra HP as though AS had been cast on you, offsetting some of the penalties associated with bloodlust, but limiting you severely in weapon choices.

I'm sure others could come up with some neat styles, if only for discussion purposes.

I have always felt the lesser weapons should have a place in the game other than beginning chars and the junk pile, this might be a way to get some more use out of them.
