    Default The Announcement You Have Waited For

    Many of you read Feather of Sun's announcement that I was pulled in to help with the named loot for U19. In his post he promised you 10 new named items from me. I put forth some proposals and made what I could and the end result is not 10 new items.

    It is 12 new items. Each quest will be getting one more named item added to its possible loot and Through a Mirror Darkly and What Goes Up will each get one more on top of that.

    So what are these new items, I'm sure you're asking right now. I have an answer!

    In Wheloon:
    The Shade's Hood - a Helmet
    Shadowsight - Goggles
    Glorious Dawn - a Ring
    Trapsmith's Crossbow - a Heavy Repeating Crossbow
    The Morning Star - a returning Shuriken (not to be confused with a morningstar)
    First Blood - a Bastard Sword

    In the Storm Horns:
    Frostbite Blade - a Scimitar
    Thunder and Lightning - Handwraps
    Elemental Fury - a Short Sword
    Giant's Fist - a Maul (and a really painful one at that)
    Nether Orb - an Orb/Shield
    Consuming Darkness - another Ring

    Nicely done.

    Next time you help, you think you could suggest a new dwarven axe?

    Wow! Named handwraps AND a named shuriken? Thank you, so much! This is definitely better than a named rubber ducky! (Although, some people really seemed to like that idea, so... Just sayin', and it'd be pretty cute...)
    Power corrupts. Absolute power is really kinda neat.

    Please, avoid Random effects on NAMED ITEMS.

    We have Random loot gen for that. And while you are at it, change the other ones we've seen already.

    Really i dont care about these named items and at this point i really dont care about U19 that i paid alot of money on and feel cheated.

    PLEASE fix the Secret Door spell to work at low levels, fix the level increase on Risia items that dont have festival infront of them, fix the level increase on quest arc rewards that are worst then loot gen and fix the xp ransack to be what is stated. Then mybe i will care about these items.

    Heh, it wasn't the amount of loot per se but rather the randomness and worthlessness of the prefixes and affixes. If these have the same randomness and useless stuff on them, they are still junk.

    So no, this isn't really the announcement I was waiting for. Not even close.

    Does this yell "HJEAL MEH!" and automatically direct all divine healing at you if you drop below 80% HP?

    Random effects = bad. Especially with the horrendous drop-rates we've seen in High Road and EE GH.

    Slots = good.

    Though considering how dreadful the original loot was the teasing is really in poor taste.

    I love new items, dont get me wrong ..

    But...

    No Dagger or Kukri, considering the new rogue enhancements? There is like what, 10 named Kukri's in the game, counting two epic versions? Most of those are level 2-12. By comparison there are 40 Daggers and 13 Dwarven Axes (counting the different levels of Mountains Fist).
    The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.

    And this.

    Probably another expansion without a +Assassinate DC also.

    So sad.

    Folks, I think Melange is the same guy that brought us Dun'robar rings, Drow weapons, Master Teblyn and House of Rusted Blades which everyone loves. The quest was decent and the items decent too.

    I do not believe he will disappoint us.

    Now to Melange: any screenshots? any items for wizards besides the orb? (i.e. staves?)

    And noone of them is even remotely close to be a proper named item. Can you take away those Random effects? We (most of the players) never liked them, we will never like them.
