The most useless item in the game for me is....... (in General)

Brakke Bres [Ow man] July 4 2006 7:55 PM EDT

Im looking around in the weaponshop, seeing countless of useless items.
Most of the items are here for a reason.
However there is one item in the store that no one uses.
No one ever buys and really has no use at all in the whole of cb.
Even back in cb1 no one bought them, no one even looked at them. And if they did there are 2 things even better then it.

Im talking about the rounded pebble, the most useless item in the game for me.

No other ranged ammo has more the 2 "none rare" ammo's slayer/ seeker bolts/arrows have a point and are rare. They even spawn in auctions.
Exploding shot, don't ask how many times, even spawns in auctions.
So why should there be 2 base ammo's for the sling?
Which no one even uses?

First place: the rounded pebble
Second place: the double chainmail (frankly only new players use this dex murder armor)
Third place: yes, the exbow/axbow even more heated debate about this thing is around so i make it nice and short. Phantom Link (should the drain go to the target and the damage to the PL guy?)

well, rounded pebbles are mostly used because of their cheapness...

I'd plump for the Tulwar to take that honour! ;)

Dagger. Why have Daggers when the tutorial gives you a Whip for free?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 5 2006 5:12 AM EDT

you only get one whip, you might want to equip the lowest damage (or cheapest...) weapon on other minions after the tutorial.

But there really is no reason to ever use a Tulwar...

Shade is right the rounded pebbles are the cheapiest ammo in the game. But for 10 bucks more you can a same stack of iron shot. 1 point higher base damage.
And a Tulwar lol, no one ever uses weapons on low lvl's. Its all mage up to 20k mpr

Not any more! Even great axes are hurting on low level Tanks! More than my CoC usually! :P

But still, we don't need all those melee weapons. There's no point upgrading to a point or two extra base over the weapon you're already using.

Especially now that wepaons have low fixed costs for upgrades.

And the DCM. What's it purpose? To catch out new players? That's a bit harsh isn't it?

AdminShade July 5 2006 5:59 AM EDT

Some changes could be made to make low level weapons a bit more competitive towards the high end ones.

An idea with the new damage upgrade prices is to make those weapons have lower prices.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 5 2006 6:03 AM EDT

Or even scale PR increase by base damage.

I don't think CB will ever change to having the best items not the cheapest to upgrade.
