Let us make the Cormyrian's part of the Challenge's Sets. And let us upgrade them.
Been suggested already a couple of times, gonna bring it up again with some suggestions.
Let us make Cormyrian dragonscale part of the Villager/PDK/War wizard/etc sets. And give us some way to upgrade them with Commendations.
I dunno, multiple choices, use barter system like epic crafting. Make us add ONE of:
Superior false life.
Seeker +10 -> Seeker +15.
Toughness -> Improved Toughness, +40 HP, not stacking with a Toughness Item.
Exceptional fortification (+50%).
Protection +6 -> Protection +10.
STR/DEX/CON/INT/WIS/CHA +8/+3 Insightful.
Exceptional Melee Alacrity +10%.
Exceptional Shatter +3.
Exceptional Stunning +3.
Exceptional Vertigo +3.
Exceptional Tendon Slice +3.
Epic +4 Sneak Attack damage, +5 to hit with SA (stacking with ALL the other bonuses).
Epic +3 damage.
Exceptional Wizardry II (Stacking +50/100 SP).
Inherent Elemental Resistance 10.
Exceptional +3% Dodge (stacking with normal +3% dodge).
Enhanced Ki +1.
Superior Fire/Force/Lightning/etc Lore, one of your choice, not all of them togheter.
Skill Mastery +1, +1 to all the skills, stacking with similar bonuses (like the one in the Shadowdancer's tree).
Epic Spell Focus: One of your choice.
Exceptional +20 Spell Power to one element
3/day Displacements clickies, lasting 3min
3/day Haste clickies, lasting 3min
2/day Immunity to curse clickies, Self only, 15 seconds each. Too long would be OP.
+2 Action boosts.
Why 3min clickies? Because I'm not sure anyone would slot those with all this stuff suggested. But at least there is THE CHOICE.
If you MUST HAVE have 3/day Haste clickies lasting 3 min each, go make another Red robe. More Epic Von6 raids for 20 FRDS Scales for you, more DDTW for 20 FGDS, more CitW raids, will keep you playing for a bit and maybe you will spend even some more money for Raid bypasser.
As you can see, most of the bonuses are either exceptional or improvements of the old ones. I'm not a fan of "we have the same stats just on different items so there is no real progression in our chars".
These are just SOME of the improvements that can be made to these armors. I'm pretty sure some of you can come up with some other cool stuff but I just wanted to give the general idea of my thoughts.
If I had a greendragon rob, with ONLY these suggestion, I wouldn't be sure what to add to my armor on my sorc: +100 Spell Points looks nice, another Epic Spell focus? Yes please. Also +50% stacking fortification could save me a Twist of Fate slot and still be immune to most crits. I could also add Cha +8/3 or maybe Con. Superior lore also looks nice on a full time armor. Exceptional +20 Spell Power? Og, too many choices.
On my rog's red robe, the situation is more like: Exceptional melee alacrity looks yummy, so does Seeker +15. Exceptional dodge would be also really nice coupled with Shadowform. +4 Stacking SA or +3 damage? Now that is something I would like also on a Fighter/Barb/Pally/whatever. +8/+3 Stats if you having troubles fitting them in, why not. +2 Action boosts anyone?
I want choices. Choices that makes my character better.
And before the "Powercreep is bad" crowd comes, I don't care if they balance Epic Elite based on these new stuff. As long as we have a REAL PROGRESSION with our chars, WE (if you are not part of this WE, not talking about you also) will ADAPT AND OVERCOME. Like we've ALWAYS done.
