I saw a mod that has ancient and primal ancient versions that roll higher stats on the items like in Diablo 3. Does anyone have any ideas on how this could be achieved without recreating duplicates of every unique and set item in the game?
Yeah, I think you're right. I've been thinking about it a bit and copy and paste and a percent calculator actually probably wouldn't take too long. Then just give them a lower percent chance to drop.
I just came up with an idea to make these duplicates tier-oriented, like for example: Normal Harlequin Crest (Cap), Exceptional Harlequin Crest (War Hat), Elite Harlequin Crest (Shako) and split them into something like Legendary, Ancient, Primal Ancient with different stats.
I like that idea as well, the mod I'm working on isn't so much to change the game rather than add to it or make quality of life improvements and I think it would be cool to find a shako in act 1 normal and upgrade it and be able to see I found this helmet 50 levels ago and I can still use it. I also think it would give more reason to use the upgrading recipes.
