Ring of armour

Post by Leone » Tue May 14, 2019 8:43 am

As has been pointed out on this forum and ingame, there has recently been a significant change in stats for gear.

In particular, armour seems to have been reduced, along with magic resistance. I think dex has been increased as well.

These changes seem good for PvP players but not at all for those who attempt the pvm route.

My suggestion:

Ring of armour
Level 750
??? armour bonus
No regen bonus

Only usable by non clanned members
Not usable by clanned players or outlaws

Why a ring? Because it's not a 'main' gear item and ranged and melee can use.

Thoughts?

I think it would be nice as I don't PvP and couldn't care any less about it to be honest. If nothing else players could carry this and equip while grinding.

Yes, I agree with Leon and SellSword.

Very good idea for a ring!

I see one flaw ... what's to stop non-clanned characters wearing it to increase their armour while engaging in PvP with a clanned member? Mind you they would be giving up STR and DEX and might not want to do that.

The +3/-3 levels still apply here I believe.

Maybe something else as well:
- wearing the ring prohibits 'initiating' PvP, to stop possible abuse as noted above, and
- it cannot be equipped if already engaged in PvP
- - IE: you are attacked and not wearing it: TO LATE!

Would be great for fighting PvMobs.

Yes, they were my thoughts. It's entirely pvm and not PvP.

To answer that question, if you wear the ring of armour then you cannot initiate PvP. (A solution?)

Think of the disadvantages to that as well as the armour advantage.

Having said all that, I like forum ideas:)

If an item wouldn't allow one to initiate PvP I assume it should still allow one to retaliate. Not my cup of tea, but locking someone into not being able to defend her/himself wouldn't go over well.

An alternate idea would be that the ring doesn't provide any stats at all during PvP like it wasn't equipped in the first place. Taking that idea a bit further, it could cause all of the stats to go negative if attacking another player.

Whatever the idea there would be gray areas as well, like heal blockers. I don't PvP, but I know there is more to participating than actual attacking.

That's why I said will not allow you to initiate PvP, of course you can still defend or log with that added armour benefit.

The idea of the new ring is to give back some armour "defence" that has been removed in favour of the more "offensive" abilities with the recent changes. So someone that "tanks" for their pets to kill have lost ARM with the new changes.

Old: LvL 350

Code: Select all

RING Wooden Bracelet ARM:70 DAM:20 DEX:10 RSPD:1 PRICE:10000000
New: Lvl 350

Code: Select all

RING Wooden Bracelet DAM:30 DEX:25 RSPD:1 PRICE:10000000
A very nice defensive ring changed to offensive.

Seems like the the idea of FT being a multi faceted game, PvM, PvP, Grind, Quest, Craft, Fish, Chop, Mine is all being pointed to "PvP" even though it is only one aspect of the game.

Interesting, Dave and a good point.

You've gained 90 levels so I guess that accounts for some of the stats difference ...but not all by any means.

Yes Leone. I have a screenshot shot in the same lvl. I need to search.

Anyways I prefer that str for mobs better than armor that almost not help. Dex is too high so loosing 300dex points no matter for grind.

And the stats on the photo are the same . Full strength
