View Full Version : Treebeard says : HOOM HOOM !

HOOM HOOM ! Yes humans, you have staggered on this... this...How did they say ? Oh yes, hill... Hill... A small word for a thing that has a history of at least a million years. You have staggered on this hill for way too long, even for I, Fangorn, hoom ! Umhbaturbachbathoomtahburt. It is a part of my name, it should means "greattowercrushed wizardinitlocked entcrushed greatbuilding".

HOOM ! Dwarves ! I do not like your axes, but your crafting skills are quite amazing. Elves ! The elder folk ! How can't we love you ? Halflings ! The small childrens, always as hungry as a hunter ! HOOM ! I'll be hasty, because time is running short, even for Ents. You need HOOMS ! HOOMS ! Your voice can't make this sound. You'll need HORNS ! HOOM !


Hum. Sorry, I had a bit of crazyness moment. Know that it is inspired from the Lord of the Ring, and those who read it should recognize some few things from it (didn't copied, just wrote what I remembered).

I'll be hasty. Paladins have few useful buffs. They do not have haste, ironskin chant (I DO NOT ASK THEM TO GET IT ! Just read everything), or anything good. Paladins are (supposed to be) mighty warriors. What is a mighty warrior without...


That's it. Give a special item, a horn, to the Paladins, that should give a courage boost, and so a stat boost. I should also lower the ennemy's stats (a bit like prayer, but paladinished and waybetterlooking). Or, as the Bard "guitar", it could be a "music", or a buff using a horn emote, and so no item to have.

Let's resume this

Name of suggestion : A buff for Paladins (and their friends) that would display a horn blow-out.

Utility : A LOT ! A lot of happy Paladins (such as myself), more immersion. There's some war-horns in the first Part of the Shroud, in a really short lap of time. Give the Paladins a way to answer ! This will greatly increase the immersion. Paladins will be accepted for their buffs - they are just accepted for tanking (and not really) or dealing damage. I want to help friends with a horn !

Post your thoughts. Don't let this topic sink !

Lol, ever play a paladin yet?? They have an aura that effects allies (and I believe nearby enemies)... I get a bonus to saves and AC just for standing next to one! Go courageous moral! But making a clicky horn buff animation would be a cool bonus and nice fluff.

My main is a Paladin level 16. I have raised a good lot of the courage part of the aura.

It is AC - does a caster needs AC ? It is generally so low it doesn't matter.
Saves, it helps.

But what about stats ? And more save buff ? Look, clerics and Paladin have Prayer. Horn-buff could be a Prayer variant, but shorter (and different, of course. Just roughly the same idea for : buff friends, debuff ennemeis). Ever heard a horn-blow ? Adrenaline boost like nothing else. It HAS to be included.

Paladins get Zeal at level 14, which is haste.

Zeal is self "haste".

Paladins are seen as self-healings barbarians too much. We need PARTY buffs. A horn blow is for everyone, not just you. And it shall debuff the ennemies that hear it.
