Speed Boots +2

Post by SellSword » Wed Feb 13, 2019 4:08 am

When we start the game we can get a pair of speed boots with no stats other than a +1 to speed. All of the other boots from then out are +1 to speed as well.

What about a higher end pair of speed boots? Something like level 1k needed and no stats other than +2 for speed? The idea is no benefit to a player beyond speed, and you could even argue there could be a detrimental to something at the expense of speed to sort of "balance out" the tradeoff.

Unless there is something else in the works it isn't until level 2k that one could get an additional +1 to speed with the legs.

I'm not in the area of having being able to use 1k+2 boots so I'll sit back and watch the results.

I like the idea and think the concept is great. Whether they just be enhanced boots of speed or with some other bonus, well that's a great discussion to be had.

I've quoted that above as it's not strictly true. Melee characters of any level can use the speed potions at will to move around faster but to also help with PvP. I would also like ranged characters to be able to use these potions.

Good idea though. Gets my vote.

True about the speed potions. I know those being for "all classes" has been brought up before, and as with many things the pvp implications come up. You know my expertise on that topic, so I'll just let it speak for itself... ;)

I'm all for players grinding, enjoying the journey, putting in the time, and so forth. That's the reason some sort of minimum level would be appropriate in my opinion. Maybe it's not 1k but 500, or 750, or... Maybe they are "magic speed boots" at level 500, you need access to the hgm resources room, and you need a boatload of magic gems crafted...

Many options.

i like this idea because high lvl players killing low lvl s easy because of speed and low lvl s have not any chance to run from them. i think everyone need to have same speed to have same chance to survive. swordmans dwarfs and ogres can also run from pvp anytime but if mage and archer will stuck havent any chance to run from them .

You add boots+2 to legs+1 (level 2k) and OOPS!

If everyone has speed+2 boots it nullifies running from PvP. Also if under attack one cannot cross a map line.

Which in my mind is totally "unfair" to unclanned players that do not want to PvP.

So we are stuck with the "pray he can't kill me in 11 seconds" bit!

If 2k + players wear the boots then they will be +3 speed.

No benefit.

But I agree with your comment. Mage and for me particularly archer at a big disadvantage at the minute.

The general idea isn't that this would give any class an advantage over another (yeah, it definitely would in some situations), but just allow players to move faster. We could give everyone (including mobs) a +1 speed so there is no advantage to anyone at all, but you can just do things faster.

I'm not quitting the game here or anything like that, but it's pretty dull at times just walking between places...
