Idea - Customized Tattoos (in General)


Xiaz on Hiatus September 22 2008 9:00 PM EDT

A tattoo that's blank and does nothing, but you can equip it with items and select certain spells. Then merge the items/skills/spells into the tattoo and essentially it becomes a familiar which uses the infused items and has its bonuses.

It has to level accordingly to make the items stronger, works like the Halidon or Jigorokano familiar, and the EXP is distributed appropriately to each item/stat.

Obviously this will have to be a costly process, and it shouldn't level at the normal tattoo rate.

Thoughts?

hence, junction.

no it is different than junction.

I think this idea is best put into effect by using Junction. I see how this is different, but I also see how it would be hard to implement, and how it would permanently remove too many valuable items from the game as they get assimilated into these tattoomonsters. It would limit the versatility of a certain tattoo, or could be abused by someone making one of these, and then junctioning it, giving it double-item bonuses and stuff. Build DBs into it and then junction EBs on, and that kinda thing.

Then merge the items.... Sounds exactly like Junction...

skills/spells.... Sounds exactly why there are 6 different Familiars and 5 different tattoos/runes.

Anything more, personally, is asking too much. Combining the different skills/spells the tattoos inherently have with Junction gives an extremely large amount of abilities that a familiar can have already. If you're asking to have that PLUS an extra skill on your minion, even after the evasion nerf, that would be too much.
