What's _after_ all the equipment changes?

Postby Stamm » Thu Nov 20, 2003 2:12 pm

Well, plain to see that some zones aren't going to be done very often after equipment changes.

It seems the zones don't generate enough points to spread between the equipment in the zone...

So I suggest that the zone owners (or if none can be found the areas staff) go through these zones and work out how to either beef the zone up, or remove some items so that points can be redistributed and the zone can be made worthwhile again.

So using crypts as an example (why did I pick crypts? *whistle*)....

Maybe drop the crown, and the spiked staff, and that might give enough points to boost the amulet up and put a prot on the ring.

Well, to use your example Stamm, both those items are used in high level equipment quests :)

I like the idea though. Just that the fiery crown and azountil staff do have other uses outside of just wearing/wielding them

crown - quest
mace - quest
amulet - quest
blackrobes - junk
gemstone ring - quest
axe- junk

like many zones before it, it has now become a quest zone.
It will be fixed in Toril 2.0.

Ok, I picked the wrong example, but the general idea is that the amount of items from a zone is reduced, so that the points can then be upped on other items and the zone is then worth doing.

How about lower the number of rewards for epic quests..then maybe you can get 1 or 2 or 3 real nice to uber items, instead of listening to everyone who thinks they're 'leet' bitch about how crappy the 83 rewards for their quest is.

And yes, I do agree quest rewards need loving, but when you get so many items for some quests, you can't really justify better statted items without reducing the number of rewards..

Why not after eq changes are done, go through zones with common eq, take all that eq out, then re-equip the zones with new items and mobs


It would add a ton of cool variety to some things if you do it right I think.
