I would say it's a quest weapon, but my question would be on how to code it, because there is so many things that you can do with a Meteor Hammer that normal weapon's can't.

For example, in the movie "Shanghai Noon" where Jackie creates that makeshift meteor hammer with a horseshoe and some rope. . . There are some extremely complex moves you can do with it. . .
Here's a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnhmjpxDfFg

And another video demonstrating both the Meteor hammer, and it's smaller variation, the Rope Dart. . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhW67MBO8M8

Yeah, should proably add it. It woul definantly be a quest item. I am working on drawing out the normal weapons, then I will do the armour and then I will do special weapons.

special weapon: a bow made of the menoa tree. We've all been focused on swords we're forgetting about some staffs and bows.

And what about those flickering daggers the dwarves from Az Sweldn Rak Anhuin had in Brisingr?? It would be a cool, hard - to - get weapon for assassins.

I think the shadow element idea is going way overboard from the concept of the IC. It may sound awesome, but it's in no way similar to the IC, & since you guys are basing AO on it, I think you shouldn't include it, MD.

That is why it is BASED on the IC. We know it is not part of it, but we need something to separate the swords. Rider swords are supposed to be special, and this only helps seperate them

What I meant was that in the IC, one can set a weapon on fire, coat it with water, cover it in ice, & maybe lightning can be summoned whenever he/she swings his/her weapon due to the charged particles in the air or the air disturbed in the swing's wake can be manipulated to hit the enemy, but an insubstantial wraith rising up to attack the enemy is completely 'weird'. CP gave a scientific approach to magic in the IC, so I think that we must also. But that's just my opinion. Carry on with it if you want to, like I said it sounds cool. Smile

Hmmm..... for a black sword I would suggest..... that each swing will temporarily bend light rays from a range of around a few feet or so (for a beginner, the range increases with increase in level) towards the sword (kind of like 'steal' the light from the place), leaving the place temporarily devoid of light. Just a thought, you can improvise, MD.

Okay, but how would that do any damage or be a passive advantage.

Maybe black swords could make you invisible for a short amount of time by bending the rays of light around you?

A black sword could be made of dark matter and could instill dread on everyone around dropping their defense a little bit?

Hmmm, the black sword could have a special attack that is a powerful sword strike. Plain and simple, a nice boosted attack.

When you swing the sword, like I said the light from the place gets 'stolen', then the enemy/enemies will have to create a light of their own in order to see, but it'll be VERY difficult manually, since the enemy/enemies will go COMPLETELY blind. If he/she is a magician, he/she can make a light, but it'll have a very small range, like around 1/4 foot. They won't be able to see their nose. You can escape or surprise attack him/her then. So yeah, it's kind of passive.

Alf's idea was good too. Come to think about it, it was very good.

I'm not sure whether I am doing the right thing by practically ignoring a good portion of this thread for not reading the other posts, but since every opinion count, I guess my post will not irritate the rest of you that much.


Elements: Fire, Water, Earth, Ice, Air, Lightning, Shadow (cant think of any more at the moment)

Having so many special elements is interesting, creates a good first impression, but once you get to actually balance them, you will see that less is more in this case. Special weapons and Rider swords should have a special enchantment of them, yes, but is that whole list really needed? At least two of them will feel like gimmicks, that I can assure you. But if you are looking for ideas on how to make them unique, I can do help you with it.

Well, we were mostly trying to come up with a way to further separate them from the other blades. Rider Weapons will be the most powerful, so the idea was a spin off of the sword Brisingr. Naturally, we began to work on other types of things so ti came down to elements.

The concept itself is good, but I have to read what classes there are in this game first to come up with an idea. Excuse the emerging newbie Razz

I think the Brisingr (Fire) Dragon rider Sword idea is good.
Now for the dark sword, Blind someone or make yourself invisible. They do the same thing, but I honestly think the idea of becoming invisible is better. Because IF its an open PVP World there are bound to be people going around with dark swords blinding people. Which would be VERY Annoying.
