What would be a good new item?

You know, you're putting together that killer set of equipment but there's one thing missing that doesn't exist in the game. What is it?

Permanent shift weapon!
Or some interesting non-combat clasp on a weapon. Like mr, or mana, or healing one.

Can you be more specific? Drachma/3x40/Clasp/regular item?
Who is your item aimed at? Newbies/Normal players or "Lifers."

The needs differ greatly and at different stages. How long is a piece of string? :lol:

I would focus less on where the item fits in this list and more on what the item does.

Who is your item aimed at? Newbies/Normal players or "Lifers."

If you think there's an item missing for any of those groups, tell me what it is.

Weapon damage. There are only 8 items in game... 2 are high end drachma. Only 2 pieces have restricts less than 3x40 and they share the same slot.

If you can provide me with a list of 9x40 caps for each class position I can work out what else is "missing." Bizarrely there is some stats that have BONUS stats, when the cap isn't even reachable. I think hand dam is an example for some class orders. I don't think dam reduct can be capped either, pretty sure there is others.

Perhaps regular players can suggest regular items better... Most Lifers will find out there 9x40 cap... deduct from the cap what can be purchased at avatar shop, and what can be gained socketting gems... the number which is left is what the player then tries to make up in equipment. Any equipment which makes up that shortfall will be considered "a good new item."

I have uh, a few eq sets and a few chars, so here's what I'd need across them:

arms -0.8 +maxcon -bonus dam reduction
legs -1.7 -dam reduction
neck -0.7 +15hp -saves
wrist -0.5 +weap dam (just adjust the existing +wd wrist in drachma store)
ring -0.2 +2hit -1saves OR ring -0.0 +2hit +5 spell bonus
ring -0.0 +2hit +dam
ring -0.3 +hand dam +hit OR -0.2 +hand dam +2hit
boots -0.4 +2hit +8 spell bonus
body -2.2 +10hp +7 spell bonus
gaunts -0.2 +hit +dam +5 spell bonus
body -2.3 +1 charisma +bonus charisma
held low -0.0 +4hit +5 stab damage +5 circle damage
clasp on instrument, +2bonus charisma
clasp on wrist, bard prime: +2 bonus charisma (replaces +charisma clasp in the set)
clasp on wrist: +hit -saves
clasp on ring: +hit +10mv regen
clasp on ring: +hit +5 bonus stab dam
clasp on hands: +10hp -dam reduction
clasp on body: -dam reduction
clasp on body: +5stab dam
clasp on belt: +max con
clasp on legs: +max con
clasp on legs: +5 bonus stab damage +5mvr
wield valor sword w/o shield to get +5 bonus weapon damage

One item, yeah.

As much as there's little weap dam or dam reduction eq for tanks, not monks, there's little spell damage eq for non-mage primes. If I can cap -dam reduction with drachma eq and runes, it'd be hard to cap spell damage without losing a bunch of -saves, which defeats the purpose.

Warriors also need a max con item to cap max con even with the legsteel plates of Hades and +max con drachma sleeves, which no one buys just to get the max con.

Thieves also need a few +stab dam/circle dam items to cap it without losing damage or lots of hitroll.

Also, there's no herbalist clasp for a bard or a monk or a thief.

A good item doesn't just let you reach your cap, it also doesn't squander a slot that gives you a good bonus in another stat, like -2saves, +2hit or +dam, depending on prime class and playstyle. ie, it could have 2 or 3 stats to avoid swapping tit for tat.

There are also a few items more suggested here.

Well, I shall steer away from discussing the best way for people to have their slots filled with powerful, humming items! :shock:

What's missing is a decent handbag with compartments for holding different types of items so you can easily organise stuff according to type. The handbag should have the ability to allow you to vary the style (leopard skin print, glittering chain mail, pink leather, etc.) so you can accessorise according to your main outfit. It should include a mirror so you can look into it and 'freshen up' for a few random moves or hp or mana. It would be fun to have the handbag as a reward for a quest undertaken for Constance...
