[LIST] Minor ideas thread

Post by tangar » Wed Jun 15, 2016 5:41 pm

Lets post there minor ideas and suggestions, stuff which is important, but not worth of separate thread.

First small suggestion:
Make int and con potions different in color. They both looks like the same (violet and purple):

May be make int potion yellow? :)

Those potions have flavors that are randomly generated, and there are more flavors than colors in the game. Nothing can be done, really...

Monster thiefs

Post by tangar » Sat Jun 18, 2016 6:28 pm

Monsters who could steal stuff is quite interesting to meet in the dungeon. I've met Jack of Shadows and it was fun.. But also it was quite unexpected - before meeting him its very rare occasion if monster would steal something from you. Its quite common when monster steal gold though, but items..

So here is small suggestion: may be add some more monsters at the beginning and middle game who could steal items? The thingy is to give thiefs at low-mid lvls only phase door spell, then they would be easy to catch. So lets high lvl monsters-thiefs would have teleport, and low-mid have phase door ;)

master thief ego is mid monster which steal items :D And if you want one of best earlier thief, i recommend Agent of black market, he can steal items too, he was stealing from new players a lot, before new char, was autowearing stuff at beggining. Have fun finding and killing Agent after he steal your DK fleeing certificate, and you have 1BPR :twisted: He in instant teleport away
I think thief ego monster can try to steal from you, but often fail :)

Next thingy: buff magic wands and staffs.

Right now there is no point to use attacking magical devices. Players using only rods for travelling needs (recall, detect & etc). Some people also use them to heal at high lvls.. But damaging wands and stuffs right now are quite useless.

How to make them more interesting? Give them 2x more damage at least and reduce fail chance. Then people would use them occasionally.

True arts status
Add possibility to see status of true artifacts from dungeon bosses (ex: Boomerang of Beor from Old Man Willow) - are they already found or not; so you could understand is it worth to go to this dungeon.

Shields... and crossbows..

Right now shield a bit.. useless :) For warriors and others melee chars especially. Second weapons is much better thing to equip. May be shields deserve some buff? Also I've noticed that crossbows not in a favor too - they are less popular than bows...

So I thought - lets make something which make this two types of weapons more useful, but do not buff it too much: let it would be possible to use crossbows without penalty with shield. Lets leave bows as it is with shields, but crossbows its kinda good, right weapon for shield.

With this we would leave balance almost untoched, but make this two types of equipment more popular.

Problem with *curse*

Right now we do not have any *RC* scrolls at NE market. They ended cause the game has a lot of new players. Each player using such scrolls to remove heavy cursed items.. Not everyone knows that its possible to echance to + numbers with scrolls of enhance.. Also people often use *RC* scrolls at Nazgul rings :?

Anyway we got a problem with too high rarety of *RC* scrolls. May be add *RC* service to one of high-end city? It could be the less popular city - then people would visit it more often.. As I see now, the less popular city is Minas Anor.. But it already have casina :P

Another idea for place to put *RC* service - its to create Tom Bombadil house in the Old Forest... As you could know, in LotR Tom Bombadil *RC* a few items from Barrows Downs hehe It could be even mini-quest for *curse removal* - to gather some water-lilies for Goldberry :oops: But its for a future..

Right now problem already there. May be just create such service at Minas Anor? But still lets make *RC* scrolls important. *RC* service could cost twice more than scroll - 30k. Some people would still use it cause now there is no scrolls at market..

----
UPDATE:
Its appeared that its possible to order *RC* scrolls! :) So its false alarm. Although idea with Tom Bombadil could be interesting :)

Steal random item

Add option to steal random item from the shop.. With more probability for success. It would be quite logical.

just kill shopkeeper, try too kill guards, clean shop and be happy. You die around step 1, didn't you know that shopkeepers were adventures at one time, and they pass because they were too lazy to grind loot to face morgy.
