sharkskin items

Postby Todrael » Thu Nov 06, 2003 6:01 pm

These weren't updated, and now seem completely out of whack when compared to mage item hps for the same slots.

But compare sharkskin eq to the other rogue usuable gear out there and you will see that it isn't all that. Add the fact that they are quest rewards and the quest mob loads pretty rare these days.

Oh please. Sharkskin items are wuss to quest, (bracers being the only possible exception) and are now overpowered when compared with much other rogue useable eq.

And I fail to see why the quest mob being rare should have too much of an impact.. Unless it's deep in some dangerous zone.

And looking at the other changes, I figure being a quest reward works against it. :P

Just saying, would you always wear sharkskin over grey greens/phaerimm, fangs/baatezu, storm bracelet, spob rogue leggings, or nighthunter greaves (especially with the current stats)?

Sharkskin quests are pretty easy, but several of the items that are far superior to sharkskin are just as easy or even easier to get is all I'm saying.

Yeah I could see them downgraded to maybe 3-5 hp, but again what would be the point, it'd only hurt the average rogue player and not those with high level gear. Getting 48 hp at the cost of 40 AC, 2 hit, 3 dam, 22 int, and 6 max_dex etc. doesn't seem like a big deal to me...

Heh, considering what you have to give up for nighthunter greaves, they'd better be an improvement over sharkskin.

What are the Nighthunter greaves stats now? I am at work and won't be on the mud for a few days.

With the last reboot, sharkskin items are now downgraded too, FYI.

Oh, and why did the leggings, eyepatch, and boots all keep their hps but downgraded while the bracers lost their hps? That seems really silly when the bracers are probably the hardest of all the quests. If it's because you didn't want to make them better than the less class restricted wrist razors then shame on you!
