Title: 2038: Design your own items!
Post by: Bryan on Mar 20, 2017; 08:11 PM
In an effort to continue adding content and to reward prominent members of the community, we have decided to have the players try their hand in designing items!

Below you'll find an example of how to do so concisely, though you won't be expected to be as wordy as I was in designing that one :P Vanity items, such as "Omerta's Boomstick", are also acceptable.


A few key points to consider:

Base item , quality, item level and special properties all need to be defined by you. It is your item after all ;)

OP items may be very fun in theory, but balance is a priority.

We can't have Rare items with Mythic properties, or Uniques with 6 Common properties.

Excluding inherent properties, such as the Glyphshards' radius and range bonuses, the maximum number of properties on an item is 6.
Dual properties, such as "adds x% ele damage and +x attack strength", and "adds 7 different novas when you get hit" count as single properties, of course.

An overabundance of items may not be in 2038's best interests.


Sample:

Harlequin Ablaze

This is a massively revisited version of the vanity item I designed in '10. Given that I've since made it my (Global) life's work to build Vraedna, a Toxic Summoner, I found it only fitting to dedicate the item to her build. If anything, as a tribute to Global's total lack of appropriate gear to tie together Forces, the Doctor, the Toxic tree and crits.

Do note, I'm keeping my name out of this one to slightly distance myself from it, as I believe it'd generally be a viable endgame item, and even more so for that build. And frankly, I wouldn't want "my" item to be both endgame-viable and have my name on it. Kind of feels wrong.

can i can i can i can i???

i've tried to look for affix stats and requirements, turns out this site's wiki has a pretty good list: http://www.hellgateaus.info/wiki/Affixes
but then this site: http://www.gamebanshee.com/news/88333-hellgate-london-abyss-chronicles-build-4-released.html has a list of changes that will probably make it into 2038, so i'm not really sure what to say.

so, here are 3 focus items, all for a Summoner trying to go for the Darkform/Zombieform build. first one is high level with some stats to prevent players from using it as a casting item, two others are there for levelling player to let them taste the power of Darkform/Zombieform.

since it was told that quality can be chosen, last two items were made into lower quality ones to give players better chances of finding those. maybe make those into quest rewards or drop from named monsters (like how certain unique creatures tend to drop "unique" items of rare quality or how some quests gives rare quality "uniques").

This looks like a fun idea :)

Ok heres my go- As part of my solo effort to make the best looking gun in the game useful
I present the Mythic XM 315 Rocket Pistol "BlueSunshine"

Item Lv 62 Char 53

Damage- Electric(Dir) 15-20
               Electric(Spl) 1-2/3(2m)
Range- cant find number but REDUCED by around 50% to counter higher damage

Inherent-

Crit Damage  50%
Interrupt       80
Rate of Fire   600
Electric Attack Strength 570

Special-

BEACON  3
ESCAPE  1-3
Crit Chance 1-3%
Accuracy +15-25
Shield Overload 50%
Inc Tactical Skill use rate 11-12%

If at all possible guns should give off a blue aura 8) and be harder than average mythic to find(apart from the two I get ;D)

Not really sure if that ends up balanced but feel free to tweak the numbers- aiming for devastating power at short range while supporting minion/striker attack.

I just wish I had more time to get involved but a big thank you to all those toiling away to make 2038 happen.

Hahahahahaha
Base range is 15m so that makes it 7.5m or thereabouts; getting very close to a melee weapon.
Go go sniper stance. :D

LoL, yes, I had forgotten that they were already at that disadvantage to Hu's and Hurris at 25m :-[

Ok leave them at 15m and crank up the damage and stopping power!  ;D

I just want a mod with 10%ish to proc a spectral nova on hit. but i want the procced nova to have 10% to trigger an other one by itself for some insane chain reactions :P

Here are 2 of my suggestions, a 3rd will be posted once im get time for it  :P .

(http://i.imgur.com/TOtqsE5m.jpg)

(http://i.imgur.com/OF4u3Ybm.jpg)

Basically they are highlevel Guardian firearms from a longdead highranked member.
I haven't read any of the books but i'm sure i can come up with a good story behind each of the weapons.
I was going to put +5% movement speed on each weapon but that affix doesn't apply on weapons, only boots...
and i have to stay true to what affixes can be applied on which items.

Hm, looks quite good as an item but I'm not sure political allusions will be desirable.
Not because of its anti-Trump sentiment, mind you. I don't really think a "Hillary's Emails" item would be either ;)

Nice! :)

Quick note on +movement speed though, it's not unprecedented for unique weapons to have it. Such items as the "Black Angel" foci and the "Wolverine" Vorpals do have that property. Memory fails me on the latter's numbers, but the former should have an incredible ~20%.

there was also a unique focus item with pretty solid armor bonus on it. was a good thing to have for a Demonform summoner :D i wonder what kind of weird stuff can be added as a unique property...

Hm, must've been either Ironlock Radiant (which should exist in 2038) or Hidra's Tentacle (which doesn't...). Of course, any such items should be recreate-able, as long as they don't use unique Global assets, such as weapon models we don't have. No Dreary Hands to be had yet...

As for what weird stuff could be created, well. There's a Vorpal that's used to smack demons across the head with, so I suppose the sky's the limit ;)

Hell's Hand-basket

From the expression
to your collection. Hell's
Hand-basket, when equipped in
a characters "trinket" slot,
has Armor rating of 200,
and adds 1000 to ignite defense.
as well as other perks.
When someone tells you, "go to hell
in a hand-basket" you know your ride
will be fire-proof.

The visual UI of this basket:
looks like a woven Easter basket, would be worn
as a necklace, where the handle is wrapped around
the characters neck, and the basket hangs under their
face, against their breastplate.

This would be for a character lvl of 30 and above.
Possibly a quest item during the 5th chapter.


Name: Hell's Hand-basket (trinket)
Quality: Mythic
Level: 30
Class:  Order
Armor: 200
Shields: 50
Property 1:  250 Defense against all special effects
Property 2:  1000 ignite defense
Property 3:  Blink 2

150-200 fire damage (direct)
60-95 fire damage (splash)

─░mproved Original mystic weapon ideas , different item ,same skin but improved version those can upgraded by cube or drop on endgame boss or something clearly gives better game experiance.

Upgrading existing Mythics does sound like an interesting concept.

Just a sad note though, Bull's Eye snipers don't exist in 2038 yet :(
Also, apparently Thunderclashes were originally Hunter weapons. Just mentioning it in case you or anyone intended to design Cabal-based Thunderclashes.

Hive Queen

This is meant to be a unique Hive Shard, which should be more crit-friendly (as no other Cabal weapons really are), farmer-friendly (as very few Cabal weapons are) and much slower (as lagging for party members has been immense in my testing) than its regular counterparts.

Hunter's Jackknife (working title)

A Hunter blade weapon. This is my first attempt at something like this, and an attempt at something that has never existed in the game. So please bear with me as I throw numbers around.
