just wanted to start a thread where people can suggest new items
yes, i know about the idea command, but other morts don't get to see
the suggestions, leading to duplicates, and no way to build on other's
append with item name, stats, potential location, whatever else

Actually, every immort sees the idea channel unless they have it
turned off. Additionally, all of these ideas are put into a
file for the builders to look at. Which is also accessable by
the rest of the imm staff.

No real point to this. It's obvious your just after +5 items, which
are very useful, don't really add much to the game. If everyone is
wearing +5 items, people's eq sets start to all look the same, and
tons of gear that is already out there becomes very, very rarely used.
While I am a fan of +5 gear and use it regularly, I'd hate to see tons
of it added. By far the hardest slot to fit in any list tends to be
On Body, but it does add a certain challenge to getting that perfect
So what I'm saying is this. I'm all for new items, just don't make them
so mundane. :) I'm sure the imms never expected to hear that from me,
but there it is! Only other thing is it would be nice if the imms would
stop competing with each other for hardest mobs, area, quests, etc.
Sometimes its nice to just walk in an area and know it will challenge
you or a friend by yourselves, and you won't need 15 other people to
do it. :)

Personally I would like to see some decent single handed
chant vina vant dyn ex weapons
forked tongue, etc etc. The only decent items i can think of
that dont are the two axes
From: thank Bart
From: , and the demon claw
there HAS to be more than this? surely? oh yeah the sharks jaw.
but is that it? out of those, i know at least one, if not both
axes are 2 handed (makes scence), not sure about the jaw though.
Basically a great item that I want would be something that caps
as often as an SSS, and can cap WITHOUT all attacks hitting, so
high max dam high weight. pref with an extra attack of something.
maybe a few hit/dam/stat. LOW rent, so you can use greaves :P
But as I think it was Craven said, high weight = high rent, (which
I must admit I didn't know) so I doubt this will happen. Hell just
something like SSS only less rent would be nice.
As was also said, just straight 5 stats are bummy. If everyone used
them, then you couldn't get perfect sets, because you don't get
perfect base stats. I know there are restrictions to - perc and spi
items. So as much use as they are to hitters, this would have to change.
From: there are already teeth out there, why not nails? something
like a stinky dragon's toe nail,
From: cant see a human nail being anything
decent to fight with
From: or even better, a giant's fist! primary is
hit, secondary can be crush. Makes scence. Would be good str, as, well
a giants fist would be a pretty damn heavy thing. You could incorporate
a quest into it. Stats could be + str, you'd need it :P - mind, who in
their RIGHT mind would carry around a severed hand? - dex, would be
heavy and hard to weild, + con, well you gotta have something other than
just str. No parry, well just think could you parry with it? Only problem
the single handedness, you wouldn't exactly be able to wield it single
handed, unless it was just the finger... so how about crush primary
and some fancy special spell thingo? You'll be using a dead finger/hand
so at least make them die of the rotting smell :P
oh well just a half baked idea that went for longer than expected...
