battlesiege15 -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/1/2018 12:23:13)

Ooooh, I dig these a lot!

A shield with a cast skill is nice and the dagger seems pretty cool too.

Carpe Diem sounds cool but that HP cost may be too severe.

Quid pro Quo is a good concept. Would be interesting for Tank Builds. Would you consider adding a .85* penalty to make it Auto-hit? It would suck if you spent so much time building up momentum and then happened to miss. Also, there probably should be a damage cap on the attack unless you really want to drag the battle out.




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/1/2018 15:31:32)

Thanks!

Carpe Diem means seize the day. I use it as the idea of 'do or die'. But maybe the cost is a little too severe.

Regarding Quid pro Quo:
quote:

This attack has no Type, automatically hits, and does not get Stat bonuses. If the Element is Harm, then it deals 90% of the above listed numbers.

This is from the entry on Spiritual Seed. I am not certain if the entry is outdated and needs the modifier, so adding it in just in case.




Lord Markov -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/1/2018 15:44:30)

Given how easy it is to bring now monsters at this point, I think that kind of cost on Carpe Diem is about the only way to make it not ridiculously easy to use. I do know the staff dislikes celerity as a status though, so you might want to make it paralyze or something functionally equivalent.

I'm almost certain Spiritual Seed auto-hits since basically all status effects that deal damage do. Basically the infliction save roll takes the place of the attack's chance to hit. Certainly it's an interesting idea, though I can't think of many monsters I would use that against.




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/1/2018 16:06:03)

There's a number of monster that paralyze doesn't work on though... Also, two turn paralyze can be achieved via a quickcast vampire mesmerize (or control, anyway), while 2-turn celerity is entirely unique.

Wicked King?[;)]
Edit: Or Starslayer if his MRM were further buffed? Or Gnat or Lightning Bug or other monsters with low health and really high defences?




Lord Markov -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/2/2018 0:39:19)

I can't think of a whole lot of monsters that paralyze doesn't work on that celerity wouldn't be cancelled out either. I don't really see celerity as that unique of a status (in fact, I would consider it inferior to basically every other form of the monster non-acting that has 100% chance of occurring) but I don't really care what you use either, I was just pointing out a potential roadblock.

Unless that got around the Wicked King's damage cap it wouldn't be super useful. I guess if one were to purposefully open their defenses versus high blocking monsters that could be useful, certainly in standard situations though you simply aren't taking enough damage for it to amount to much.




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/2/2018 0:54:35)

Ouch.

Oh well, they were always intended to be specialized for certain situations rather than always useful.

Thanks for the feedback!




Lord Markov -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/10/2018 10:21:58)

Meta Set is pretty hilarious. Would definitely love to see that in-game.




Mr. Uber -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/10/2018 23:01:45)

Problem with the "Quid Pro Quo".

Its too easily abuse-able with the purple rain spell or an item that can reset HP/MP/SP.

I've constantly thought about suggesting something like this just to put something broken in the game but essentially this is abuse-able for the simple fact that one could:
1. Cast Purple Rain spell
2. Then cast "Quid Pro Quo"
3. Then rack up as much damage needed to kill the monster
4. Then recast the purple rain spell to reset health
5. Then recast the quid pro quo spell to effectively kill the monster without sacrificing any HP/MP/SP

This is unless the purple rain spell or the Quid Pro Quo spell can't be cast if the other was cast like how you can't reset a turn using the Doray (shield) if you already did it with the Father Time (shield) and vice versa.




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/11/2018 1:39:47)

Right, thanks.

Added it to the entry.




Rorshach -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/23/2018 8:16:41)

Interesting nerf weapon, that Malleus is. Although I never depended on proc-chance weapon for any effects. I would rather it be active-able or as a 100% passive.




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/23/2018 13:53:13)

Understandable, I generally prefer activatable weapon skills on my main myself. Just thought it might be a little to strong here.

As for passives, I don't really see a difference. Would it have been better if I put: "0-proc, but instead of +9% damage has a passive 20% chance to sacrifice damage to inflict Jinx"?




Rorshach -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/24/2018 12:53:37)

I'm more of a person who prefers 100% chance for 1% extra damage, than 1% chance for 100% extra damage. Both has its pros and cons.





Mr. Popo -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (5/30/2018 0:47:28)

Dang dude, you are just a wealth of ideas; you push them out like it's nothing! It always takes me at least a whole afternoon to get done with just ONE suggestion.




John Apple -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (6/15/2018 7:44:53)

I like your Zweihander suggestion. Especially with the 'forced' unequipping of the usual shields.




Uskius -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (7/4/2018 21:11:26)

I really like the Giant Arachnid pet, and it's mastercraft effect. The Soul-seal Spear is neat too- I don't think there's anything quite like it in the game right now, so it'd be interesting to see.




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (10/7/2018 3:26:52)

Soul-Sealed Spear

Water element pet
2 hits of ranged damage at +5 bth lean

Trigger: +10% damage if you're using a spear
MC goes into no downtrigger

Effect: Instead of normal damage, this pet deals (20 + 10*YourCHA/VStat)% of the damage you dealt this round. (The 25% pet damage loss is to account for the fact that you'll use 2-3 skills or spells per battle; with an assumed 10 rounds of combat that's 25%).

Appearance: A floating spear, similar to the Badelaire guest or Haunted Sword.
Description: This spear is magically bound to your weapon, following in the patterns you set.




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (10/7/2018 3:30:18)

Gogg
Multi-element pet with celerity chance.

7 hits at +3 bth lean of ice, water, earth and energy.
Gains elecomp for multi-element attack.

MC: Player takes +(20/1.4)% damage from monster attacks, and the Gogg gains celerity (just for itself). The monster can resist with a save at a +0 bonus (inflict with CHA/LUK; resist with CHA/LUK).

Appearance: There already is a Gogg pet (rare), this could be a revamp.
Description: This gogg is big, ugly, powerful and capable of hitting your enemy again and again.





Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (10/7/2018 3:33:03)

Zorbak
Darkness pet that can tag the monster as undead.

Trigger: Ele-seeks and deals +damage vs Undead.
MC goes into no downtrigger.

Click to toggle between:
- 2 hits of magic darkness at +3 bth lean.
- 1 hit of magic darkness at +10 bth lean. Deals 50% damage and has a 20% chance to tag the monster as Undead for the rest of the battle. Monster can resist with two saves (Cha/Luck vs End/Luck and Cha/Luck vs Cha/Luck) at -20 penalty to save. The monster need to fail both saves to become Undead.

Appearance: Zorbak. Need I say more?
Description: Help Zorbak spread Ebilness and Undeath across the world!




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (10/7/2018 3:35:51)

Cor-Dem (Revamp)
Energy pet that can lower monster's magic defences or Int.

1 hit of ranged energy at +10 bth lean. Deals 25% damage of a standard pet.

Effect: Randomly inflicts either Magic Defence Loss (-6) or Int loss (-30) until the end of the battle. Monster can resist either effect with Cha/Luck vs Int/Luck save at +0 bonus to save.

Appearance: The same.
Description: The small alien Cor-Dem's psychic attack lowers your enemy's intelligence and magic defenses!




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (10/7/2018 3:45:57)

Over 14 million futures
A Misc with a modified Eye of Naab effect

Effect: +50 int

Effect: Click on the misc to attempt to see into the future. Quickcast. Monster can resist (Int/Luck vs Int/Luck) with +0 bonus to save. Costs 50% sp of a standard skill. If successful, monster gains +50% damage in its next turn. Afterwards, you gain +8.5 bth to all attacks and +24 MRM for three turns.

Has an sp upkeep.

Appearance: A golden amulet with an emerald stone, resembles an eye.
Description: To those who only see the present it may seem counterintuitive to empower your foe...




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (10/7/2018 3:50:56)

Holy Water Vial
Anti-Darkovian misc to cancel regeneration.

Effect: Click on the vial to splash some holy water on your weapons for an sp cost. This doesn't take a turn. For the next three turns all your weapon attacks inflict Disease on werewolves and vampires (including the -pyre variants) with power equivalent to damage dealt. This affects hp healing.

Note: The misc doesn't work and automatically unequips if you belong to one of the darkovian subraces.*
*You are unable to handle the holy water!

Appearance: A crystal vial with water.
Description: A basic tool of any Hunter.




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (10/7/2018 3:53:28)

Symbiote
A healing pseudo-guest misc.

Neutral element misc with a fairly high hp cost (since misc+guest upkeep).

Effect: Heals (DamageDealt * 0.8) hp at the end of your turn (with the usual multipliers for magical weapons and spells) and your guest doesn't attack this turn. Uses Cha for stats. Basically, uses your misc and guest slots for lifesteal (0.2 for misc, 0.6 for guest).

Appearance: A cloth-like being similar to a Lethifold.
Description: This semi-sentient parasite can grant you high-speed regeneration as long as you feed it blood, both of your enemy and yourself.




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (10/7/2018 3:59:29)

Primordial Phoenix

Fire element monster (resists according to the elemental wheel)
MRM, attack and stats the same as other phoenixes.

Effect: Spiritual Backlash. 100% of all damage inflicted on Primordial Phoenix is reflected onto the player's sp (with the 1.125 modifier). If the player runs out of sp, the player is inflicted with Disease (sp version).

Effect: Phoenix Rebirth. Upon its first death, it stays at 1 HP and resurrects itself to full health (on its turn). This removes all hostile effects inflicted on the Primordial Phoenix, and attempts to inflict the player with Daze, Blind and Burn for 3 rounds.

Appearance: Similar to other phoenixes, but larger and with flames spontaneously combusting around the monster.
Description: Modern phoenixes may not come back from the dead - but this phoenix was born from the flames that existed before the creation of Lore. Do not expect it to lay down and die!




Primate Murder -> RE: Primate Murder's Suggestion Thread (10/7/2018 4:03:13)

Gray Boy

Wind element monster with fairly average resists.
MRM is stronger against melee.

Gray Boy's attack deals no damage, but attempts to inflict a stacking Bleed and Burn until the end of the battle. Uses mp to increase the power and infliction chance of Bleeds and Burns. If runs out of mp, uses a skill to 'reverse time' and gain hp, mp and sp that Gray Boy possessed at the beginning of his last turn.

Effect: If player attempts to gain celerity from any source (SFP, Overlord, etc), the attempt automatically fails and Gray Boy gets celerity instead.*

Effect: If Gray Boy looses more than 10% of his MaxHP between the end of one turn and the beginning of the other, he uses a self-inflicted time loop at the beginning of his turn. His hp, mp and sp automatically regress to the amount possessed at the beginning of his last turn.** This does not affect the player and doesn't take a turn. This is used even if his hp drops below 0.

*Using time manipulation against Gray Boy... not very smart.
**Gray Boy's form flickers and is restored to pristine


Stats: Max int, dex and luck. I suggest putting the rest into end, so that it's possible to deal more damage against him without him auto-resetting everything.

Appearance: Monochrome boy.
Description: A manipulator of time loops and time streams, Gray Boy possesses the greatest power of all - that of being immune to nuking.
