100th Weapon has Arrived (in Changelog)

AdminNightStrike May 6 2012 10:14 PM EDT

The Chakram:

This is a rear-attacking ranged weapon that does not ignore invisibility. All the other fun stuff is there to figure out.
Edit: The subclass of the Chakram is now "thrown" instead of "sling".

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] May 6 2012 10:16 PM EDT

Nice timing!

--JDM-- May 6 2012 10:26 PM EDT

Does it gain any bonus from the archery skill?

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 6 2012 10:42 PM EDT

Where oh where do I get one at? Where oh where could it be?

Fishead May 6 2012 10:44 PM EDT

Is it wrong to admit that I have a thing for Xena? I'm getting one just because it's a Chakram.

Thanks for the new weapon NS (and everything else you've been doing).

Demigod May 7 2012 12:51 AM EDT

Thanks! Buy yourself a beer and pretend it's from me. You earned it.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 7 2012 1:24 AM EDT

New stuff.


AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 7 2012 1:27 AM EDT

Attacks from the rear

Like Rogues do it from behind? ;)

Base 5 Damage, one in the game atm.

I'd assume it's a 'Rare'. Pit, does it do anything else?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 7 2012 1:30 AM EDT


Fishead May 7 2012 1:59 AM EDT

Will this be a Supporter item?

Josh [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 7 2012 2:02 AM EDT

I love it. This is awesome. Now I have to rework my next NCB strategy!

Unappreciated Misnomer May 7 2012 5:51 AM EDT


QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] May 7 2012 8:58 AM EDT

If anyone would like to try it for a bit, let me know.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 7 2012 9:00 AM EDT

85 more votes to get one out of the black market! ; )

Quyen May 7 2012 9:38 AM EDT

we should have a special tourney for it :P

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 7 2012 10:35 AM EDT

NS, any trade ins planned? Like the old stuff Jon used to do when he released a new Rare? Trade in some HG for a new GoM. That sort of stuff?

First 20 HXbows traded in get a Chak in return? ;)

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 7 2012 11:01 AM EDT

Black Market Votes needed!

Item Votes Required Remaining
Chakram 13 86 84.9%

Really would like to see this new thing-a-majig!

--JDM-- May 7 2012 4:45 PM EDT

How much more awesome would it be if it targeted the last minion, then did a sort of splash damage in reverse order on its way back to the wielder!

Quyen May 7 2012 5:24 PM EDT

might aswell use the SoD :p

--JDM-- May 7 2012 5:36 PM EDT

Thats what i was thinking haha, its just a reverse order SoD.

Gohan [Ka-Tet of the Serene] May 7 2012 8:40 PM EDT

36 BM Votes for the chakram in 1 day, that has to be a new record :)! keep it going folks!

Fishead May 7 2012 9:49 PM EDT

So, how does it work in melee?

Josh [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 8 2012 12:05 AM EDT

I'm fine if all question about the item are not answered and left to be discovered. That's how it always used to be.

QBOddBird May 8 2012 3:18 AM EDT

am not touching anything "rear-attacking"

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] May 8 2012 8:18 AM EDT

Had a bad experience OB?

BootyGod May 8 2012 9:24 AM EDT

Oooh. I can't wait to find out some details.

Now, give us non-tanks some changes! =P

AdminNightStrike May 8 2012 1:32 PM EDT

Temporairily reduced the rarity so that it can spawn via BM

AdminQBVerifex May 8 2012 2:45 PM EDT

I want one of these bad boys.

Gohan [Ka-Tet of the Serene] May 8 2012 4:40 PM EDT

9 more votes for bm spawn

AdminNightStrike May 9 2012 9:01 AM EDT

I spawned it early. I probably should have lowered the BM auction time, too. I also should have sent some to auctions. I was trying to keep them rare :)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] May 9 2012 11:11 AM EDT

Thanks! Buy yourself a beer and pretend it's from me. You earned it.

I'll buy him one for you.. when I have extra money.. and access to a car.. and free time >_>

But eventually it shall happen!

Also did I mention you're awesome NS? Thank you!

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] May 9 2012 11:16 AM EDT

Oh and Novice you need to do a tourney dedicated to it now, especially so I, or anyone else for that matter, can start updating the wiki with all the info on it.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 9 2012 3:40 PM EDT

I spawned it early. I probably should have lowered the BM auction time, too. I also should have sent some to auctions. I was trying to keep them rare :)

This community is voracious so keeping anything rare will be difficult. I think the route you are going right now is perfect. So far there are only two in existence, Pit_Spawn has the Prototype and Auctions has the very first one ever spawned. I think possibly a Tournament with one as a prize would be an cool thing to do as well. Let the community come together and spawn them from the BM for a few months then I would add it to the Auction Spawn list or add it to the Special Items list.

Just my opinion(s).........once again thanks for the shiny new item!

Quyen May 9 2012 3:57 PM EDT

I spawned it early. I probably should have lowered the BM auction time, too. I also should have sent some to auctions. I was trying to keep them rare :)
I see a chakram in black market, which you can't buy I believe.. Part of the Plan? :P

AdminNightStrike May 9 2012 4:06 PM EDT

Nah, that was me triggering a new blackmarket auction incorrectly. That item will die eventually through the normal channels.

Guardian May 20 2012 9:41 AM EDT

WE NEED to add info for this weapon so badly on help page, coz its blank.

Guardian May 20 2012 9:45 AM EDT

i added basic info but its not looking good, i know u guys can do better

Demigod May 20 2012 1:13 PM EDT


Demigod May 20 2012 1:32 PM EDT

Will someone please add Chakram to the dictionary?

Fishead May 20 2012 3:23 PM EDT

I'm not up to snuff on adding info to thw wiki, but someone can add that it fires in all melee rounds, not every other round.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 20 2012 9:55 PM EDT

Edited Fishead and noted that the Chakram is the First of the New Thrown Class of Weapon. Enjoy!

Unappreciated Misnomer May 20 2012 10:50 PM EDT

added chakram to the list of range weapons in the wiki, updated the chakram page with base nw, upgrade cost for 'x' and a blank '+' table for someone to fill in.

p.s add Chakram to the spell checker please.

Unappreciated Misnomer May 20 2012 10:52 PM EDT

btw anyone tried to see if the SoC will work with this weapon??

Guardian May 20 2012 11:04 PM EDT

awesome job guys!

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] May 22 2012 8:56 AM EDT

Chakram is the First of the New Thrown Class of Weapon. Enjoy!

Oh snap, do I sense a new skill in the works? ;P

Demigod May 22 2012 10:07 AM EDT

I'm surprised no one's honed in the forging time. Someone with a Chakram may want to lend it to a forger just to solve the puzzle. Also, it's still not in the dictionary.

AdminNightStrike May 22 2012 11:47 AM EDT

Yeah, I'm not sure how that whole forging stuff works, so I just completely made up ad hoc numbers for those entries in the database. It'll probably have to be tuned.

Ditto with the NW curves. Sorry, wiki-editors :(

Also, while I find it flattering that you guys created a new weapon category (thrown), I didn't... I made it a sling. Is that your way of telling me I should? :) :)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] May 22 2012 12:42 PM EDT

Yes it is, and yes it should be. ^_^

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 22 2012 1:17 PM EDT

I AGREE with Nat this should be unique since it is the 100th Weapon!

KittehShinobu May 23 2012 8:36 AM EDT

^_^ a Chakram Sling... *reveils the missing part of the SLING of the Chakram... a piece of NS's soul* ^_^ There, the SLING of Chakram is done.... =3 Why in kitteh's green heaven would you make it into a sling category, when it is clearly a throwing weapon? =3 Clearly it does deserve its own category... or did CB suddenly throw the weapon detail accuracy out the window when I wasn't looking? Phantom, SoC works with any weapon, but it only specifically activates its special abilities with Hammer weapons, and UC. Now back to my point. A Chakram is a THROWing disk with NO other component that would qualify it as a sling. ^_^

AdminNightStrike May 23 2012 9:02 AM EDT

Haha... Shin, you have a way with words :)

Ok, ok, I'll create a new category. Just don't expect grenades or anything in the future. :P

Unappreciated Misnomer May 23 2012 9:13 AM EDT

so about those throwing knives and caltrops for my ninja? ;)

AdminNightStrike May 23 2012 9:15 AM EDT

Caltrops would be interesting... thrown once only, cause bleeding, maybe hits everyone.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 23 2012 10:10 AM EDT

ooohhh those, Ninja Stars or both!

Guardian May 23 2012 10:22 AM EDT

Give me kunai!

Josh [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 24 2012 3:23 PM EDT

If we don't want more Thrown Weapons, how about a Soft Weapon that is ranged and boosted by UC in some way. I'm thinking a Meteor Hammer.

--JDM-- May 24 2012 3:39 PM EDT

How about hurling insults that cause your opponents to go into a blind rage and miss more often. :)

Demigod May 24 2012 8:02 PM EDT

Give me kunai!


Haloki May 24 2012 8:15 PM EDT

Boomerang mayhaps?

Tabaldak May 24 2012 8:55 PM EDT

yeah, what's next in the thrown weapon class?
