Well, was just wondering to myself that a character
is able to wear 20+ pieces of eqs yet there are mobs
which only wear a few and are impossible to solo,
does this means that we are bad or what? Considering that
in groups, it is almost a 10 to 1 fight against certain mobs.
It does leaves something to the imagined, couldn't we have
more properly dressed mobs? they could be fitted nicely
and the eqs just poof when they die.
Just a boaring tale.

Or just have a larger assortment of mundane items. Nothing wrong
with that, except its quite a bit more work.

I agree there should be more mundane items. And more mundane coupons
given out. Maybe if imms are open to suggestions on items from morts
(especially if there is some sort of contest) this would take some of the
burden of thinking up items. Of course, I have no idea what coding this

it'd be interesting to have them dressed with +1's or net 0s
that are low rent for lowbies, or just 'good' ac eq for a
hard-to-ac slot. my newbies have trouble finding good ac
gear for all their slots (well, i guess i don't put in an awful
lot of effort getting a burko and all) and as a lowbie there's
certain good feeling you get when you know you have all your
slots filled with something decent. i mean, i want some
better slings and studded leather vests and stuff

The problem with 'fully dressed' mobs is one of memory. If all mobs in
the game were dressed with full sets of gear (20 items) it takes up
a rather large amount of memory. (5000 x 20 x 1024 bytes, approximately).
It's just not practical, really. As far as mundane items, there are
already a -ton- of these things =) Thousands in fact, as most of the
equipment in the game is non-stat.

the problem with this isn't the mudane item itself,
there's more of a problem with -too- much
eq for newbies. no one is honestly going to keep
this gear in a final list either, so it's really
pretty pointless, IMO.
-pshrug- get the tailor skill, mundane all of your
items to leather hoods, etc.. and have fun. ;)
