OVERPOWERED!!!! (in General)

TheHatchetman April 29 2008 4:16 PM EDT

Seeing as overpowered items/skills etc are a poular topic of discussion, I felt I would put in my 2 cents ^_^ The following are overpowered:

Melee Weapons
Vorpal Blade - If I put tons of net worth into my AC and/or ToE, it shouldn't be so easily ignored!
Morgul-Hammer - my mage can't drain HP during battle!
Blade of Thuringwethil - now you're doing it with one hand?! Showoff!

Ranged Weapons
Elven Long Bow - does way too much damage!
Sling of Death - makes my killslots mean nothing when you get triplestrikes against my whole team!!!
Mageseeker - makes my carful minion placement moot!
Enforcer's Crossbow -all my ST gone, and you only did 1 damage!!!

Amulet of Focus boosts EDs and skills by way too much, while contributing to evasions 90%+ boostability! not to mention the ability to directly pump the DD of a familiar
Amulet of Invisibility My tank can't find their damage dealer!
Amulet of AC Wall gear reduces physical damage too much!

Body armor
Trollskin Armor - too much HP regenrated!
Adamantite Cuirass - too much HP saved by damage blocking!
Mithril Chain Mail - Provides WAY too much AC for no penalty!

Cloak of the Istari Mages already have a keen advantage in that their damage is boosted linearly, now they can add an extra 15-20%?!?! Insane!
Shadow Cloak - damn wall gear!!!
Elven Cloak -Evasion booster

Pair of Displacement Boots - I can't hit Mikel!!!
Pair of Elven Boots You have HOW MUCH evasion?!?!
Set of Chain Mail Leggings - You all know my thoughts of walls!

Pair of Noldorin Spellcasters - 2.5m AMF levels... useless
Pair of Tulkas' Gauntlets - best damage reduction from gloves, *and* ST boost!
Pair of Beleg's Gloves - *Linear* increase... to missile damage?! Ludicrous!!!
Pair of Elven Gloves - Have I mentioned Evasion sucks?

Helm of Clearsight -so an archer can kill my 5 minion team, and the single minion dude below me with one BA?
Cornuthaum - Like your enchantments weren't overpowering already...
Helm of Durin - 30 AC from a helmet makes no sense! Helms are small and don't even protect anything important!
Heaume - the epitome of pwnage...

Power shield
Mage Shield - I train a 5m spell, you reduce the damage to that of a 3m spell... while I still take the AMF equivalent of a 5m spell... Brilliant!

Mithril Shield - Walls are OP!!!!

Rune of Enlightenment - No fair! You're gaining more XP than me!
Tattoo of Endurance - Seriously, do you ever see anyone standing any chance of overwhelming Koy's damage cap?
Rune of Balrog Flame Allows too much XP concentration, *and* "perfect damage"!
Tattoo of Augmentation - Raises encumbrance by a bajillion, while adding large amounts of boostable ST and DX, and increasing the pth of up to 2 weapons!
Rune of Solitude - allows wayyyy too much HP via AS, and makes DM hard to use against them :(

Anyway, with this announcement, anyone using any of the above items now knows! If you know, and you continue to use these items, you are exploiting weaknesses in game design, and while there are no rules against it, your victories are shallow!! I may or may not come up with a list of overpowered stats later...

I would advocate a supreme boost for the Heaume, but that is just me.

Rexozord April 29 2008 5:33 PM EDT

You completely forgot Familiars. Extra minions that train experience without decreasing the amount your team receives? That's way too overpowered as well.

(should I have added exclamation marks to make my post more believable?)

QBOddBird April 29 2008 5:57 PM EDT

You also forgot the OP Elven Hauberk.

8DEOTWP April 29 2008 6:26 PM EDT

EH Sucks

QBOddBird April 29 2008 6:28 PM EDT

You mean, dear friend, that it sucks that it is so overpowered.

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] April 29 2008 6:33 PM EDT

Well said Hatchet. Hit the nail on the head :P

BootyGod April 29 2008 7:37 PM EDT

I gott say, personal favorite:

Helm of Clearsight -so an archer can kill my 5 minion team, and the single minion dude below me with one BA?

A consolation prize to Pair of Elven Boots You have HOW MUCH evasion?!?!

[P]Mitt April 29 2008 7:38 PM EDT

You are amazing.

three4thsforsaken April 29 2008 9:09 PM EDT

Oh no! I never knew I was still exploiting the game! Don't hate me!

Lochnivar April 29 2008 9:12 PM EDT

I read the title and thought this thread was about me....

Ah well, Hatch you forgot the most overpowered thing in CB (me!) so I put no stock in your list.

/me retreats to his fortress of vanity....

TheHatchetman April 29 2008 9:27 PM EDT

Loch, if I started bringing up OP people, someone would add my name to the list, then this very thread would become an exploit :o

I did it for the good of the thread.

three4thsforsaken April 29 2008 9:47 PM EDT

You're overpowered Hatch, I think Jon needs to nerf you! CB has been exploiting your insight and advice too much!

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 29 2008 9:54 PM EDT

ban everyone, IMO.

Usul [CHOAM] April 29 2008 10:13 PM EDT

wow... at least I owned 3 of the listed items. Although those are the only 3 items I have that is considered rare.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] April 30 2008 3:21 AM EDT

Uhh, you really should have mentioned chat. Chat is way overpowered, and needs a serious nerf.

TheHatchetman April 30 2008 3:26 AM EDT

20 lines per 10 minutes max! Otherwise the spread of information will continue as it is, and even the new guys will be well-informed as to the workings of CB... Then a few unworthy may stumble upon...

Oh dear, I fear I have said too much, and I can't seem to find my backspace (thought I left it with the 6, but I'll figure it out in the morning...)...

I do hope I remember to uninstall my Q and Caps Lock Key at some point though. I type while looking at the keyboard, and to accidentally hit the caps lock, and find four misplaced capital Q's in each word of what I type is rather alarming... But I digress

TheHatchetman April 30 2008 3:30 AM EDT

Wow... Just re-read it, and realized 3:20am is totally not the time to be posting when going on little sleep... I can't believe I forgot to hyphenate un-install...

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 30 2008 3:20 PM EDT

Gordon Gano's familiar takes damage from his own Cone of Cold (1752334)!


{cb1}Linguala April 30 2008 3:43 PM EDT

nicely summed up, Hatchet...

GW, I'm with you about the favorites.

I get your point though Hatch...this is overpowered, that is overpowered and all is overpowered it seems.
Ban all types of weapons aside of the normal sling and dagger.
Only iron shots allowed.
As for armor, only light leathers allowed.
No tats, no power shields, no amulets and the buckler is the only kind of shield that should exist.

Now, all skills, EO, ED and DD spells should be banned too.
That should make everybody happy, nobody can have something "special".

What, it wouldn't be any fun that way? You must be kidding me, it'll be plenty of fun.
Thank you very much for all the negativity, I've hadn't had enough of that yet.

But to come back to the pwnage, well said Hatch.

Can't use it either ;P
