100th Weapon has Arrived (in Changelog)


AdminNightStrike May 6 2012 10:14 PM EDT

The Chakram:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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 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.

Awesome!

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

ooodalolly

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!

Underage Drinking May 7 2012 5:51 AM EDT

cool!

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 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.

Admiralkiller May 7 2012 6:26 PM EDT

Neat

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?

Godpanda 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 [Serenity In Chaos] 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 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

http://www.carnageblender.com/wiki/Chakram

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 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!

Underage Drinking 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.

Underage Drinking 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 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

Underage Drinking 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 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!

+1

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?
