Repent Reloaded

was just thinkin of a few touches mythic could make to DAoC to make it a bit more interesting, wonderd if u guys have some too ?
I thought of a few but cant remember, he's what I can thou.

More Sound effects, if you miss a shot with ur wep should have 3+ diffrent miss sound effects, if u miss but it would of been a crit it could make a more aggresive sound, that way u can go DAMN, just missed a crit, gutted!

If u nail someone with a crit ur char could make an agressive grunt maybe ? or your enemy yells out in pain... somthin along those lines.

Maybe be able to see some of your magic items like belt/necky.
Also an option to take on and off the hood of ur cloak.

these r just off the top of mah head, u ppl have any ideas ?

-edit- oops, was ment to put this in Gen threds, sorry :D

Well, players should definitely make different pain sounds for hit for 1dmg by a bleed and hit for 400dmg by a bleedin great zerker :p

Not entirely fluff, but, can guard patrols please blow a horn or something as they enter your field of view? Really is a fricking pain to run solo through an enemy frontier constantly terrified that lagging guards may suddenly appear in your face. :[]

Fluff-wise... more non-armour clothing! Can't have stats so it's purely aesthetic. Stick some of it in tailoring and some of it (maybe visible decorative jewellery) etc in other crafts, not really bothered though I expect some crafters might be. (nerf tailoring, they can make G-strings! etc)

Make it possible to get RA respecs or skill respecs by either
a) A fairly difficult quest, say about 4fg required...
b) Dinging up a realm RANK past 4... i.e. you get an RA respec at RR5, RR6, RR7 etc but not for R2/3/4...
c) Gaining exp in level 50. I.e. exchange 1bub of exp for a line respec, exchange 2 bubs for a full respec...

More emotes!
Different tunes for the various different flute/drum/lute songs...
Overhaul all the epics that are currently ugly/boring. (i.e. thane/healer/skald/shaman/minstrel/merc/friar/blademaster/bard)
Give minstrels the ability to call in artillery strikes plz, ktnx.

you can alwasy change the sounds found in the /sounds directory, just makesure you do it after the updater has checked or itll automatically redownload any files it finds with illegal filesizes. Is good having some proper battle music instead of the vulcan duelling type music :), just rename your mp3 to thatever the vame calls its songs/sounds and copy into relevant directory after updater has ran. Works a treat. makesure you backup the original files so u can copy them back hwen u have finished or the updater iwll download them again.

Wouldent mind seeing new swords, glowy fx are nice but u cant beat a really nasty looking blade, shedloads of blade designs outthere. A Conan atlantean sword would be the daddy tho imo :) maybe the sword from Hawk the Slayer too :D wouldent mind a katana for highlander type characters :) theres anew class we need in alb immortal! maybe thats the only way to even up the balance of rvr. (self rezzing critical dmg chaps) :D

Personally I'd like to see a quest that allows you to remove all the bonuses from your Epic armour so you can get it SC'd however you want....

Ok, so I'm frustrated about how much cash I need to save up for a suit of MP chain.... and how long it's going to take me seeing as how I just want to RvR when I log on in the evening! :rolleyes:

new ideas

Bloody progress bar when you're salvaging....
(sheesh)

more customisable player models / clothing

online customer support people

advertising the game / making sure shops have it in stock may possibly help to attract new blood.........


all obvious things, really....

thats a matter of opinion my friend :)

More Music!

Need more music. i.e 5+ diffrent tunes when u enter combat mode.

Diffrent music for alb/hib/mid RvR zones, Epic feel music.

Get rid of the telekeeps and lets jump on a ship and show a pic of ships landing on the shore while its loading.
Once load has done the ship's doors open, Que epic music. Guards and players run out into the front.... Guards secure the area like they do with keeps now and player go out and die/kill whatever....

I'm gonna try not to moan about mercs, but here goes...

Just a few things I can think of:

1) More emblem options, ie more pictures/colours combinations etc...
2) Allow guilds to change their emblem whenver they want, as many times as they want..
3) Guild Vaults :)
4) BIGGER player vaults...
5) Status bar while salvaging (already mentioned)
6) Give master visur a speed upgrade, hes damn slow!
7) Change timer on Increased Fumbles (damn couldnt resist it ;/)

I want an artist tradeskill.

Artists would be able to design and apply their own patterns to armour and would add particle effects to weapons. Would add a huge new amount of depth to the game.

it's allready there, but subtle.

Listen closely to the sound of hitting a mob with a regular hit, and then with a crit.

There's a stronger little "WHAP" there.

-Ingame Gamma slider
-The ability to restore masterpiece items/epics durability
-Portals in Both frontier keeps

Uique sorc epic armour, obtainable by a quest. The artist who did the epic armours actually posted on the VN boards saying he had the sorc epic concept drawings but that it would never be implemented because "some people might still want their wizard-like robes". Damn shame IMO - this would make them available to those that want them.

- Replace horses with magic portals

- Future expansion pack territories can include islands and oceans (epic sea drake mob, island trading, smuggling, piracy, ship building - new trade skills), air / clouds (etherial and spirit based magic, flying character classes), and deep earth (seas of lava, daemons, and all manner of fire and plasma based magic)

- Insert some cataclysmic multi-realm based questing - ie - the end of the world unless the three realms can work together to defeat the evil monster, or complete the huge multi-part quest, etc

- Ability to RVR deep inside enemy lands - why shouldn't you be able to take 30FG 50th levels, smash down HMG, and invade Tir Na Nog !

- Improve server reliability / integrity - just cos you take 500 ppl into Cornwall in a Dragon raid, you should be able to rely on the servers holding up.

- Improve graphical effects for weapons that proc

- Introduce glowing armour (if you like that sort of thing !)

- Introduce spells capable of blasting holes in walls (except PK's)

- Ability to start at level 20 if you have a 50th level character. Nothing more boring than trudging through 20 levels of agony

- Remove battlegrounds - they're shite and no one goes there. Instead create lowbie areas in Emain and Odin which are out of bounds for (say) 25+

- Change Guilding rules so you can form a guild with 2 ppl if you want. Why is 8 the magic number ? There are some guilds running round out there with less than 8 members, I can tell you !

- Create RVR imbalances v's Hib - pbae / debuffs / demezz / crowd control etc etc etc yak yak yak (not going into detail here)

- Albion version of a Shadowzerker

- Put the hole back into Echoes room in Barrows !!!!!!!!!!

- Horse route to Pikes in Lyonesse

- Put a stable boy at Prydwen Bridge

-Randomly changing walls and passageways in dungeons - but a bit Harry Potter like


Just my 2 cents.

I agree with almost all the things that have been posted above but I'll tell you what this game lacks.... BLOOD!!!:wall:We want BLOOD:wall: dammit! Game rating is not an issue since in most European countries people dont give a crap about game ratings... a 7 year old kid can go to the store and buy an "M" game (or even an "X" rated one :p). Blood and mutilation effects will make killing and burning endless hordes of mobs while leveling much more satisfying and exciting. And yes we want respecs... I wont og as far as Cheradenine to propose that we get respec for every rr or exp bub after L50:eek7:; I'd rather be automatically granted a respec on a time-basis (a week should be reasonable).
