Add more weapon dam items that have low ac

Postby Hung » Sat Dec 19, 2015 7:05 pm

Hi,
Right now, the only way to make considerable melee damage per round before 9x40 is to have 40th monk and full monk gear.
The traditional way of damaging with sword does very modest amount of damage even with prime warrior sword or trip40 axe. Also warrior has no analogue of a monk's strike.
Moreover the weapon damage gear is either very expensive or adds only 1 point of wd.
As far as I understand the reason for such choice was that the warrior supposed to go in full ac gear. Therefore the most wd is either external to eq(gems and purchases in avatar shop) or drachma.
However there are many situations when you can sacrifice ac in favor of wd. I.e. when you solo and want mob to die as fast as possible. Or when you are in group and dont tank.
So I propose add more wd items that dont have maximum ac.

I.e.
a ring of master warrior (-.3ac +2wd)
a battle shirt of Galavan ranger (-1.9ac +4wd)
a sleeves of butcher (-.5ac +3wd)
a shield of defender (-.8ac +2wd)
a pirate's bracer (-.2ac +2wd)
a scarab of the warrior (-.3ac +2wd)

Sorry for the bad English.

I won't comment on these items, which seem useful, but a bit overpowered.

The drachma shop does need +wd items, eg, I'd welcome a shield that had +wd instead of +flail. Or maybe some -0.5 +wd wrist.

As for items, I simply took some existing hand dam and dam items and created their wd counterparts.
Because the core point of my post is incomprehension - why there are so many easy to get hand dam and dam items and almost no weapon dam?
