item ideas

Postby cherzra » Mon Jan 28, 2002 2:00 pm

Ok, let's say there was an almost finished new zone, and there were still some items that could be made. The fights that they come from would be hard. Gimme some ideas on what slots are currently missing higher end eq for what class... and some ideas Image This is your chance at customized EQ, just imagine if you find that piece you suggested one the zone is in!

* Yuan-ti only eq!

* Some spanky eyepatch which is better than psilk which every level 1 evil has.

* COOL axes, maces, morningstars.. Why do all warrior 1-handers have to be swords?

Good idea on 1! I love those snakes. Snakes, rejoice.

A gigantic club of dwarf-smooshing.

I mean, dwarves get giantslaying weapons, why shouldn't ogres wield something that pounds little guys into the ground?

Whips, chains, leather slacks... okay, how about just a decent whip?

Can't help it, it whispers to me in the night.

Oh, and if you happen to toss in rogue gear, could you consider the fact that not all rogues have chosen evil as a state of mind? We don't all have to be ruthless assassins, no matter what the majority of the item guru's seem to think. I have no requests for any specific items, just ones I can use. Unless, of course, it's an evil only zone.

A good caster (cleric/mage) shield. Just about everyone is using those damned nebbies.
Something +30hps to be comperable with nebbie, but has decent AC and a protcold or protacid or something like that.. or yeah, light weight too Image

Yeah, an eyepatch would rock also.. especially if it has infra Image

A new version of a nightshade or silver band type thing too Image

Something that has an enchantment that hasn't been used but maybe the item dissapates over time and becomes useless .. for example ..

some eyepatch that gives you ultravision for like 2 game days then reverts to infravision .. then it becomes just armor ..

or a cleric shield that gives the wearer dragonscales for 2 rl days then swithes to stone skin for 2 rl days then armor for 2rl days then becomes a normal sheild for 2 rl days .. then dissapears into the abyss.

I know thats probably impossible to code .. but i think it would be neat Image

Whip of Shadowy Strands
2/2 ok damage dice proc's suffocate

A soft white cloth handle leads down to strands of wispy material that move with even the slightest breeze. At times, the strands look frayed, but then form back together into ten or so new strands.

Ashiwi's Whip of Shadowy Strands fades from sight and the air around you fogs momentarily. A loud *snap* is heard. When it clears, the whip is wrapped firmly around Malice, the half-breed son of Strife, who gasps for breathe.

Mask of Viper's Fangs
Some AC Slow Poison maybe +agi/dex

Made to cover the bottom half of the face, the mask is fashioned out of wrought iron and has two protruding fangs that quite possible could be from a viper of some sort, though it must have been enormous in size.

Dingy Gray Earring
PFA some hp 8-10 maybe

The earring seems to have been a once-beautiful piece of jewelry, but now is nothing more than a corroded piece of twisted metal.

Well-worn Old Slippers
40mv 10hp -1svbr -1svrod -1svpara

Though tattered from use over the years, the slippers seem to be holding together. They have a comfortable fit, almost as if they had been your slippers all along.

Gauntlets of Elemental Flame
PFC 2/2 AC11 -10hp (maybe 1/3)
(gotta be !troll. No matter how stupid, a troll shouldn't be putting their hands in the fire)

The gauntlets appear to be made entirely of flames, and are very hot to the touch. Flames seem to crawl off the fingers toward anything nearby, as if seeking out something.

I think of more later.
*wave*

I liked a lot of his ideas, but I was especially fond of the idea of a proccing whip.

Okay, I can't say what I was going to say, it was just too suggestive. Let's just say I really like the whip idea.

Hm, I was writing up a global quest mob for a proc blind whip... salen's idea is perhaps a lil better, as we have proc blind up the wazoo nowadays.

ok i was thinking the same thing about yuan.
for instance since with the missing eq slots, perhaps create some eq that combines stats...since they have no ears create a heapiece they can wear that combines head and (2) ear slots i.e. ac 7 +5 +2 headwear/earwear i get that from sg crown and tge (2). and something for the waiste that combines waiste and foot. then a cloak that combines about body and legwear.

another thing that i know i saw someone talking about was !rent/!trade/!sell eq. the person who quests it or kills mobs gets it for the time they on. and lets say a sword that heals the warrior that uses it. or that causes the user to be able to relocate a few times with a certain aloted time frame.

oo oo oo another thing was a +regen hps eq:P

i thought of other stuff but im drawling a blank.

Maxdex is the direction we're headed in.

Haste items are a tremendous can of worms. It's not going to happen, because of all the stuff that went down with it in the past.

I think everything on your list exists Kiryan. The sleeves I am pretty sure do not, I may be wrong though...

Sweet, I'm not the only one who likes whips. Speaking of which, I'm kinda working on getting one into a zone atm, we can always hope.

As for things we need, I'd like to see some +dam cleric only stuff added, not anything huge, but allow there to be a distinction between all hp casters and damage ones.

You could make a Indiana Jones outfit to go with the whip! It procs giant rolling boulders and spirits from the ark of the covenant!

You send Indiana Jones sprawling....

One thing that I think would be neat is some type of eq for Yuan-ti that can be worn on thier tail, I mean after all the tail of a snake is mighty powerful!
Ex.+10 ac -4 Agi Levitation
+10 ac -10 Agi +4 max int
+8 ac +2h +2d -4 Agi Warrior Only

Maybe a weapon possibly,
3d4 +2h-1d tail spikes!!

Fear the levitating snake?

Oh, this could be my ignorance speaking, but I haven't noticed anything for high-midlevel druids other than 10hps rings... All the easy to get 25hps rings are align restricted.

PS - by "easy to get" I mean easy to get with like a 5 man group, which is standard for lesser zone areas. Although I personally would probably bring more :P

Valke: That would require a coder modifying the files for Yuan-ti and possibly files for equipping equipment in general, not just some area maker plonking them into a zone.

There is a 25hp ring that all alignments can wear, but unfortunately it's a real pain to get.

Definately a +2dam +hps ring (rogueable)
something in the line of headgear wearable
by neutral rogues i mean sheesh i cant get my hands on a surtur or FG crown to save my life and cant wear the SG crown Image

Yuan-ti only gear would be killer too! they are so screwed in the eq area it isn't funny.

Eyepatch!!!

thats about it...

max_wis held items (not shields..) that are good for all priest classes, not just cleric/druid only or shaman only

i am reminded of holy books on a different mud.... cherzra will know which ones...

more good aligned white ansi eq for those of us that are fashion concience. Dressing all black and havign goot stats/hit/dam is easy to do, but for a paladin to do the same is kinda difficult imo.

Not sure how many of ya care, but i know there are a few of us that do Image

Hi.. don't know if your still wanting to hear ideas but here's one.. Don't know if you can use it or if it fits, but I liked the idea.

"an obsidian death's-head club" (or mace?)
quite heavy as it is made purely from obsidian stone, this club has a long handle which ends in a melted-looking, horrible death's-head...

stats: I have no idea *shrug* i'm still a newbie somewhat but I think it could be cool if it was SHAMAN ONLY or something. I am not sure if Clerics need another weapon but if they do it should be a MACE rather than a CLUB I think.

That's all,
Dhuzakara Bloodgauntlet.

Ring of sustenance
Sets food to -1 when worn. Good for people that are in to socialize, or just explore and such

Not sure it should be highlvl to get though.
