Make BoNE 100! (in General)

QBOddBird March 23 2007 6:29 PM EDT

Yes, that's right! Increase the base damage to 100. Why?

So I can make for myself A Blacksword of Nan Elmoth [100x1000] (+100)


Selfish reason, yes, but a good one. Plus, it'd be a base damage with triple digits. I don't know how much more powerful that would actually make it, but it'd sure make it LOOK pretty darn strong. And after all, it's what's on the outside that counts. I know I, for one, *always* judge a book by its cover - so lets give the BoNE a cool cover!

I agree

and the BoNE needs a boost to outweigh the almost total uselessness of it (no VA drain/ no AC vorpal-ness)

tscm March 23 2007 6:34 PM EDT

I've been thinking about that too, I vote yes, naturally.

QBJohnnywas March 23 2007 6:38 PM EDT

I'll vote for that too. So long as you make it:

A Blacksword of Nan Elmoth [100x100000] (+100) and then transfer it permanently to me.

We already have the Rapier for that...

After you get it to the size JW suggests, rename it to 'Light Saber'

PM channeling novice:

How dare you ever post that you want something boosted to gain an advantage for yourself. You are so selfish it is not even funny. Why would Jon change things just to give you a selfish advantage.

Now, back to reality: Not a bad idea. The inate, non dispellable VA of the MH is very powerful and more damage on BONE is needed to compensate.

And, for novice, NO I do not own a BONE.

Sounds like a plan... BoNE for President (or Prime Minister if you walk that side of the pond).

Unappreciated Misnomer March 23 2007 7:11 PM EDT

whoa! seriously, have you thought of the inplications involved and problematic situations that will arise when coding a base 100 weapon, damaging thats what i can say, now i realistically propose a base damage of 99.

Unappreciated Misnomer March 23 2007 7:12 PM EDT

selfishness aside

GO PATS March 23 2007 7:14 PM EDT

I think the BoNE should be 99 damage, but naming it should give it an extra 1 base, plus the original x 150 extra... Also, when naming a BoNE, I feel that I should be granted say... 250k - 1m EXP on each of my minions... (What I mean by this is every time anyone names a BoNE, I get EXP...) That way, Jon will get more money, I will get more EXP, and you will get your 100 base damage weapon... sound good?

Flamey March 23 2007 7:21 PM EDT

All jokes aside.

BoNE needs a Boost as well as the ELS.

BoNE for 100.
ELS for 85. (Just over the MH).

QBOddBird March 24 2007 12:08 AM EDT

Awwww. But if it were 99, I'd have to change the stats to 99x999 +99! =(

Unappreciated Misnomer March 24 2007 12:13 AM EDT

or x9999?

Ragatag March 24 2007 12:31 AM EDT

i agree :D

BootyGod March 24 2007 12:42 PM EDT

Long as I get a free one...

tscm March 24 2007 11:54 PM EDT

I think BoNE should be upgraded to base 100, and teh ELS should have some sort of magical attribute or Elven DX bonus, to compensate for all the other changes.

Lumpy Koala March 25 2007 11:26 PM EDT

Yeah.. both BONE and ELS needs love.... it's even sadder to hear that people already forgotten the existence of ELS

MissingNo March 26 2007 1:18 AM EDT

People remembered that the ELS existed when the VB got stepped on by an ogre with razor spiked feet.
