Good day.

I am planning equipment revamp in Solace. So it would be nice to have your ideas. There are things from some hard areas which suck. Name them, let me check and change them to something tasty.  Roll Eyes

First thing that comes to my mind is renegade (heaten) druid from Silvanesti forest. It took me 40 minutes to kill him(doing only wounds) and he was wearing some common staff, scarab of death (crap from identify) and some belt of leaves (crap too).
(Maybe he is wearing something better but it was taken, so i risk to make myself stupid though Wink.

I like this idea very much. I was already thinking to post in ideas section how it would be nice to make more eq, because it would make refreshment to old players who know all items very well. It has become routine to go on the same places after every reboot... and routines can be boring Smiley. I am for this idea and not only that - maybe it could be expanded by not only changing stats of existing items, but also by creating new items as well!

Mob: Bergos'Nor, cleric of Chemosh
Area: Tower above gully dwarfs :-)
Object 'bone arm minotaur' is type weapon, extra flags hum anti-good anti-neutral


Item name: bone-headed spiked mace
Wear on: wield
Area:

Actually All gear in that tower is mega crappy, though It is quite challenging to obtain, but I have only some of them saved in Logs.


Item name: armor made of silver and bronze
Wear on: torso
Area: qualinost
Mob: Gilthanas, the elven prince


tem name: band of solid blue ice
Wear on: wrist
Area:

this one maybe usable... because its ave20 chop and vampiric... but I never used it and always dropped :-)
But in general all mobs in asalandor are hard, it cannot be concidered as ranking area, but gear you get here mostly very crappy. Except bracer from necromancer(red scaled), shoching axe and maybe some more. The most unfair is equipment from minotaur, that Mino only but so crappy...

Item name: bracer of influence
Wear on: wrist

Wear on: arms
Area: Draconian Encampment
Mob: draconian outcast knight


Item name: chainmail of copper dragonscale

Seems to me it were old saves VS All

Area: pax
Mob: britblaze



Item name: centaur hoof
Wear on: hold
Area: vargin shin
Mob: king

Item name: crude iron belt

King is extremily hard with those breaths ignoring hold...
reward is almost nothing

Item info:

.. this object, a collar stained with dragon blood, is armor,
and can be referred to as 'collar bloody'.


Item name: coral spiked mace
Wear on: wield
Area: naiadian depth
Mob: merfolk shaman


Item name: crimson scaled bracer
Wear on: wrist
Area: lava island

Again some old saves VS All Seems

Item name: dark axe of Despair
Wear on: wield
Area: Castle of Giants
Mob: torturer

I have changed my post to reflect what was already changed. Currently I change only stats on items, without quests and special effects.

Nice Job Kiri...

Mob: Lord Milles, the army commander

Item name: dual-bladed axe named 'Beholderkin Slayer
Wear on: wield
Area:
Mob: daedalus, the rakshasa prince

Area: netherworld
Mob: greater wight


Item name: ebony breastplate
Wear on: torso
Area: isle of dead
Mob: Thing from the Hell


Item name: elven gown of white rose petals
Wear on: body
Area: pale moon
Mob: Faela, high priestess of the pale moon

When worn, it
modifies armor class by -11

Sounds like fighterlike item, but from armor 15 15 15 15 fighter will gain 45 ac
Maybe this should be changed, beacuse -11ac seems like mage feature

modifies holy-based spell damage by 7%

Maybe it should become shield (anyways it could be cleaved) same as priest without shield :-)


Item name: guardian sword
Wear on: wield
Area: mausoleum
Mob: shadarlun


This is usual neraka gear from mercenaries, that are tough and Neraka itself is quite far away. I've never seen somebody geared with it or similar:

Item name: hammered iron plate mail
Wear on: torso
Area:
Mob: The human mercenary
Item info:

Object 'iron hammered hard plate' is type armor, extra flags none.

It will be good limited eq, but not best. Yes, we want that, because hardness and level of some mobs doesn't match eq they drop.

Correction, fighters get 29 ( 3*6 + 11) - only upper ac multiplies with three

IMHO nowdays you can easily get very good set during a week as maximum coz all best things are on mobs (or appear on them from time to time). People cry about improvement coz they are too lazy for exploring and spending time to visit really hard monsters and kill them getting very good clothes one by one from each monster. Как говорится, под сидячую жопу и пятак не подсунешь.

so is that original list with the 'cross-out' lines through some mob names going to be progressively updated and we just need to checkback every once in a while?
