I also like the idea of trading off quantity for quality in most areas so that you dont get this huge amount of items to sell at npcs. I would like to see dodge techniques preset in each character so it wont be such a "your good because of your items, stats, and skills" kind of game and finally requires some action and thinking by the player.

It would also be cool to have small human camps in the wilderness with people in them. Houses, small time npc's and guards and hunters.

You could have sub quests be to contract kill some of these people in the camps/forts/houses also.

What about an item, a "soul" perhaps, that could be combined with a gem (ruby, sapphire...) to create an elemental summoned creature that corelates to the type of gem used (ruby=fire, skull=skeleton, diamond=etherial). The summons would not exist as normal character-skills and both the gem and soul would be lost in the making. They could create a third object when combined in the cube, a charged gem so to speak that has one summon charge. The power of the summoned creature would relate to the level of gem used.
The soul could possibly also be embued with extra powers that the summon would be granted, like 20% increased hitpoints.

I'm not sure if this one has been mentioned before, but what about a prefix for magic weapons that increases their damage based on kills?

You could create a soul weapon that monsters drop when you kill them for necromancers, and that soul gives the necro the ability to summon the monster that that soul came from.

you could also create an orb or something like that that you equip sorceressess with, and its power is affected by energy insted of strength or dextarity

Assassin only gloves and boots would also be cool

I know it's not my opinion that counts, but I kind of dont like the idea of Based on kills because then people would be great at the game just because they spend more time on it, not because of skill or strategy.

Hert: Diablo 2 is _not_ a game that lends itself well to game skill _or_ strategy. Rather, the skill and strategy in the game is all around building your character, which naturally requires time.

In short, all monsters can be beaten by simple strategy or another and this strategy needs only be repeated for the 50 or so of that kind you encounter in an area.

I major beef with Vanilla D2 is that the focus is on character building as I mentioned above, but you get a finite amount of resources (skill points, stat points). I've made suggestions here to include skill point books and stat elixirs and add ways to improve equipment limitlessly as a way to remove this restriction.

That is, after a certain point playing a character becomes boring because the character no longer grows. I don't want this to be the case with this mod as well.

Isn't that always the case?
I mean, if you play longer and kill more enemies you get more experience, money and items. And this is what makes the character you are playing more powerful. Ofcourse strategy will always be a factor.
I would be great if you would use the "personalize item" quest-reward on one of those weapons when playing multiplayer. It would become more valuable, the older it gets and the more it's used. And it has your name writen on it. :)

I wonder if there's a way to alter names of items in cuberecepies. It would be fun to be able to buy an item (stamp or something) wich when combined with an equipment places your characters name on it like in the personalize item quest.

It would also be interesting if the price for selling the item would go up as it's damage increases, to further reflect it's increased worth.

Re: [Character] Sorceress

Post by acdc14235 » Fri Jul 02, 2004 3:21 am

Heres is an idea for skills that would maybe make people want to max them more.

Whenever you have a skill at acertain level, it may gain a new feature, such as piercing, or an extra "bolt". This would be called something like "2nd Power Skill", and it would gain the extra effect at a certain level (it wont work with items with + skills, you have to put skill points into it.)

Then maybe when you max it, it gains yet another new effect, such as much more increased damage, a new type of damage, or anything else you can think of!

What do ya think? :?: :!:

hert/Mylon remember to keep everything at a friendly level. It's quite common we all have different opinions. So, lets go back to talk about any suggestions you all have instead.

My main suggestion is that each character class had a skill that allows him to create an item out of it, and only with that skill you get that item.

Example druid with the herbs, and sorceress scrolls :)

the amazon could make special arrows with the flecher skill (or let it be a general skill from all characters) :P

Good idea!

:arrow: Barbarian can make drinks, like Beer, Wine, Rum and other - these increase Barbarian's strength, etc.
:arrow: Paladin can make holy symbols, holy water etc. - and gain bonuses for fighting with undeads/demons.
:arrow: Assasin can make traps - I don't know yet, how would it work, but you can remove traps from Assasin's skills.

I have another couple of ideas.

We all know that chests can be locked. Well, how about some doors that are locked, but you have to find a special key to open it (this may be part of a miniquest, who knows?).

And...

Before you enter the monastery, there is a door in the east part of the wall, maybe this could be an enterance to a level or something.

Yep,

The most of the original areas is still left. Instead have we increased the acts with more levels.

Suggestion for the Fourth skilltab.

I was thinking a Forge items skill on this tab could be a good idea, let them create Items for only a class, these created items will also become better (also becomes magic or rare at higher skills levels)

How about a skill all players can learn....

Eternal Town Portal, creates a eternal town portal *like shrines* that can be used constantly, if you cast the spell more than once then the old eternal dissapears and a new eternal appears.

The town portals require a item to cast, lets say Nexus Stone. These stones are only found by monsters, and the Eternal Town portal when cast uses up all your mana and leaves you with 1 life.

----

Another type of Cube.

Hell's Box.

This cube is a cube that uses 2 parts.
The first part is the Hell's Key, dropps by, of course, the smith. This will only drop if you do not already have a key, if you drop your key than kill the smith again you can pick it up again. But you can only have 1 at any time.
The second Piece is the Hell's Box its self. Which is dropped by Hephasto in act 4.
What this cube does is it can do any cube recipie but the results are not the same as the horodric cube.

Such as, a example, would be combining 3 chipped gems inside this cube with the key can result in the nomral flawed gem. or at a 20% chance, result in the same chipped gem except you destroyed the other 2.
and at another 20% chance, will upgrade it a level beyond. To a normal. Then there is the LOW chance of 5% that it will turn into a flawless.

When doing crafting recipies, there is a chance that all the components will be destroyed and the item that you crafted will turn into a crude item.

Like say a recipie to turn a sword into a crafted sword can result in the base crafted stats etc, or....... Will cause you to lose all components and turn the item into a crude item with 0 durability.
And then at a lower chance the possibility to add extra stats to the item that it should not get.
Like say getting a cruel damage prefix on a crafted item were it should not get. This is of course if you meet the level requirments.

OMG! I just had the coolest idea and it would be a awsome addition to this mod.

Mkay!
There will be these things called avatars, and each one will represent a prime evil. They will be little things that support the monsters in the area.
Avatar of Diablo
Avatar of Baal
Avatar of Mephisto

Each one does diffrent things, If by chance you are unlucky and get see a Avatar of Baal all the monsters in the area will be supported with a aura that makes them Immune to EVERYTHING. magic, physical, elements etc.

So basicly every monster withing about 5-6 screens you wont beable to do anything to. What you need to do is locate the avatar, a stationary object, does not fight back or nething, when you locate it you can destroy it, it will drop a glowing treasure chest of contents and disable all the support for all the monsters around you.

Avatar of Diablo Increases all monsters speed, Attack Speed, Defense, AR, and when they die their body rests in peace.

Avatar of Mephisto makes all the monsters immune to all types of magic, they get higher hitpoints, more damage, and when they die their body corpse explodes with a small range.

This would make it awsome to keep players from just running around killing mosnters without thinking, instead if they see that monsters around them are way too strong then they need to locate the avatar which could be pretty far away and destroy it.

But the avatars also need to be big enough so players can see them without it being hidden behind a tree or somethign too =P

aww crap i did't know i was the last one to post in this thread =x

To be able to use an anim from any game we need a way to extract them to a gif anim. If anyone has a tool to extract those give a link and we will look at those and see what fits into da :P

www.lineage.com has alot of decent animations that can be used.....

the game client its a MMO but i know people have extracted the images before. Just finding out how to do it would require asking one of the fan sites because i know nothing!

sorry for posting in a topiv that is over 4 yeas old but this was the best place to put thisi think.


ok so this was an idea i was thinking might be cool but maybe not. (skill and item idea)

ok so maybe monsters could have a chance to drop skins, pelts, scales and so on, and after you collect so many of one monsters pelt you can cube them togeather to make an armor. now what this armor would do is have a few stats the relate to the monster it self and it also morphs you into it. and you could have like a weaving skill or somthing that you have to level to make this armor out of different types of monsters. and this should only work for armor and not helms and boots or gloves only because there might be issues with wearing multiple armor types.


so lets say you are level 1 and in the blood moor and you kill 3 fallens and all of them drop a skin, now you pop open you cube and drop all these skins into it and hit imbune and ba, you got armor. you put iton and you now run around as a fallen.

so keeping wiht the fallen theme the armor should reflect this monster so maybe it would add some fire res and damage.

and for the weaving skill level one could be fallens and then max level could be weaving baal skins or somthing like that.

idk if this is a good idea or not just figured i would throw it out there.
