Design Your Own Unique Item
« on: Aug 19, 2010; 06:12 am »
As you know, part of the upcoming modification will contain a numerous amount of unique items dedicated to community members and developers. To qualify, you must have a presence within the community or at least be a founding member... sorry but we can't add everyones, it would be just too much work. The more presence you have the better the chance your item will make it into the game. 1 item per member only. You may be able to add more if you were to script the item yourself. More on that closer to the time. For now, lets just share ideas!

Things you must specify:
  • Item Name
  • Base Item
  • Item Quality (rare, legendary, unique etc)
  • Item Level
  • Item Flavor Text (a quote)
  • Damage Type/s - no need to specify actual damage values, just types.
  • Maximum of 6 Affixes - Be prudent, no overpowered affixes.

Be creative, make a nice photoshop of your item if possible to capture peoples attention. At least use formatting if your using plain text. Your item can have a unique texture if you create it yourself but its not compulsory.

To get the ball rollin, here's some ideas for Maeyan items:

Don't dream what to be; be what you always dreamed.

Focus of Hukhuk
...seems like an oxymoron.

Focus: Lens
Unique
Level 40
Toxic based
Critcal +10, chance to cast fear (or +4 fear/venomous spirit)
"I love the smell of vomit and shame in the morning...it smells like victory"
"Hukhuk's virulent focus of pain"


Now for a real one

Zen Focus
Slipnaught type focus
Unique
Level 47
"All things have two sides, lose sight of this and lose yourself"
Spectral damage
4 slots
2-10% chance on hit spectral nova
2-10% on hit
200-300 phase strength
200-300 stun strength
+1-2% crit strength
-50 health regeneration

I assume a unique mod like a relic or fuel would be impossible since unique mods dont exist in the game, but how about a dye kit? Really I am just curious what else would be possible besides weapons. like zart's adrenaline pills of tweeeking. Could we be an npc or boss monster? Or maybe an exploding barrel of poison gas? Instead of palladium can we have hukhuks?
SquidlordBetty - Evoker Interruptus - 51/8
BunnyHuntress - Saw Drone Engi - 55/3
OneEyedTracy - BM - 41
HellenaHanbasket - Elemental Summoner - 51/2
SistrBubbles - Guardian - 40

Let's go bum tugging!

I am not buying weapons with Hukhuks. No one would accept that currency. I think dye kits/relics/fuels are possible, I think Maeyan has done it before...

Well sure, they smell bad and it takes a pound of them to equal one palladium. They take up 6x6 space in the inventory and drain your life at 2 pts per second, but if hukhuks were all we had, by god, we would use them. And then we would leave the station, and run to the farthest corner of the map, just to get more hukhuks.

The Merkabah
Base Type: Zenith Shield
Unique (Or possibly mythic?)
Item Level 60 (Requires Character Level 50)
Flavor Text: "Upon ahead, I viewed a great mass of jewel laden light, emanating thunder... being driven by majestic, holy creatures. It was the chariot, the throne... of The Creator." -Ezekiel 1:4-26, (Paraphrase)*
Damage Types: Direct Physical, Direct Electric, Direct + Splash Fire Damage
Affixes:
 + All elemental defenses
 + Bonus Armor
 + Ignite attack strength
 + Chance to cause an electric nova when it hits an enemy
 +1 to all Guardian Skills
 + Melee attack speed %
*If it is too long, I'll try to shorten the paraphrase.
** This affix is in the game, but does it actually work?


Edit: I couldn't find a picture of a Zenith shield, so I chose a Dissector Shield instead -

[attachment=0:2rwstx90]Hellgate_Herald_of_Rlyeh.jpg[/attachment:2rwstx90]

Edit#2: Item level should probably be 60+; character level requirement should be between 50-55.

Edit#3: Since the +Guardian skill damage affix does not work, I suggest instead putting a +splash radius affix on the shield instead.



Edit#4: I corrected the affix, the picture up above now reflects what is intentionally being proposed.




Edit#5: I'll provide more specific parameters and appropriate changes when we have a working Dissector shield in Reanimator.

Cthulu, why don't you make the shield "when hit"

And last I checked the +1 to skills worked.

Reserving this spot for when I make it... Right now I am stuck between which quote I would like to have... Got it down to these.
"Am I the only one that notices that there is a dinosaur wearing a space suit?"
"Ill see if Maeyan can get me singing journey on the front page."
"I think it would actually make Leitner cry."
"Its times like these I find tenacious d at least a little bit useful."
"I ju-...what was I talking about...fish?...no...bacon?...no...ah screw it..."

Pop? What pop?
You said you worked magic on me to do away with all the popping.
There should\'nt be any popping.
There\'s protective magic! You said so! Make it protect!

Leitner's Legacy
base item. Could someone remind me what the base item for syd's thorax is?
Unique
Character level 40(item lvl 48 I think)
"I smite thee"
No damage
Impreg
Tav 8-10%
AA 11-15
Inc movement speed 15-20%
Inc damage 18-22%
 
Item would obviously have fairly high feed requirements. Thinking 50-60 str to account for the impreg/tav, probably 35-45 stamina based on the AA you get, and no idea what the WP affixes would amount to.
We are Templar, while we breathe, we defend.

  • Item Name - gonzo destroyer
  • Base Item - xm 57
  • Item Quality - unique
  • Item Level - 25
  • Flavor text - There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
  • Damage Type - physical splash
  • Maximum of 6 Affixes - +crit chance, 20% shrapnel/nova on kill, plus weapon accuracy or -weapon accuracy degradation, maybe other random affixes

Although we can add unique mods, dye kits, new adrenaline pills, npcs, monsters, exploding barrels and strange new currencies, for this community items release are are strictly sticking to convention and providing unique weapons and armor only sorry. However, feel free to create your own modifications and add any items you desire!
