An ideas thread (most common thread type i make) (in General)

I have an idea for a glove to replace the GoM.

Gloves of the Blood chief
grants +1% vampiric effect to melee strikes per + enchantment

Any other ideas that aren't fixing current problems (like exbow and drop system) or criticisms/suggestions welcome.

I like it! Or how about for each + it gives 5% immunity to VA from DM?

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 16 2009 2:16 AM EST

The only problem with that idea Vaynard is that you will likely still lose some VA to DM and you are losing damage because these gloves would replace HGs and TGs.

Nice idea though might be a little OP

If they get up to +60 you are immune to GA. Not sure that should be allowed. Maybe a cap at 20%?

When the drop system was implemented, i'm sure the % chance of drop was set to give a certain # of items per week to each person. Obviously for some people it has been more and most people who post about the system it's alot less or 0. What if an internal counter was added to each person, and after that counter gets to double what it should take to get a drop (i.e. if the % was 1% then 200 fights) then they automatically get a drop on the next fight and then the internal counter resets. Some people still haven't gotten a drop since the system was made, that's not right.

Wraithlin: have you ever seen gloves at +60?

A Set of Tulkas' Gauntlets [6] (+24) is the biggest I could find.

The reason you don't see large gloves is that there isn't a reason to have huge ones, too costly. There are cheaper items to increase your str than gloves because of the low AC. If you added these gloves, they are the only item that would have this effect and therefore be worth upgrading. I.E. why do you see +200 DBs and the next highest type of boots is only 50.

charge arm [0] (+18) worth $47,792,312 owned by QBnovice (Dagobah)

Steeper curves. I would love to have +50 Noldorin Spellcasters.

Wraithlin November 16 2009 11:49 AM EST

Although I suppose if you kept these guantlets low AC too, then it would still put a soft cap on the bonus because nobody wants to wear 1 billion NW gloves.

Simply make the upgrade curve very steep after +20 or so. Noone will drop $200 USD for upgrading some gloves.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 16 2009 3:13 PM EST

upgrade curve would definitely grow steep, probably on a slightly higher curve than TGs.

We already have leech items.

If you want non dispellable VA, use a MH or Bth.

Imagine a Bone with its massive damage ability and inate non dispellable VA.

Nope, not what I would want included in CB.
