Probably Shock Grenade too, then.

Awesome ideas shok.

Perhaps other classes like Naturalists could create "animals in a bottle" or like one of those pill things that expand into huge ass sponge animals when you stick them in water for a while. Or maybe an Elementalist can make "fire in a bottle". Essentially an elemental grenade. :P The psion. Hm. Shiny aura in a can! >.>

As for guild support...what's your stand on that, Ryme?

One thing that needs to be considered before jumping to any conclusions about how cool it would be for a gadgeteer to make items he could sell is the money making potential of each class. For instance, right now I believe Psions are the worse, as they have one buff and no other class-specific ways to make money. Not to mention the fact that Wind Warrior isn't exactly a neccesary spell for anyone. Those are great ideas content-wise, but balance-wise it might be a good idea to work on the Psion first.

This could just be me being selfish though :)

Something like the basement for high-levels would be nice.

I know that sounds vague but I'm tired and sick and can't think of anything creative right now...

Keep in mind the less specific you are with your ideas, the more likely it is to have them implemented. But a good idea, nontheless (that's a word, right?).

The very last level you can access? Yeah, that scales.

I know that, MN* (why do I keep saying MJ?), but I'm saying something that could perhaps have leaderboards, something that you progress in. For instance, if the monsters in The Fiendish Pit got harder as you killed more, and it recorded how many you killed. Something to show off and compete with.

Though it'd obviously be much more in-depth and complicated than that.

Well, here's what Jick said once a while back. He likes it when people just say "Hey it'd be funny if ____." This is because if you go into great detail about every drop for every monster in a zone you made up, odds are it won't work with the rest of the game or won't be balanced or whatever. If you provide a specific idea, lets use something already implemented for instance and say "What if there were a zone where everything scales and there were random names for the monsters?" That's different than writing 5 paragraphs about what each one would drop, exactly how much exp. they would give you, and why what items they gave you did what. I'm not saying you should say "Hey there should be some zone with ice cream." I'm saying that you may be wasting your time by writing for half an hour about something you want to see in the game, because odds are if Ryme even reads the whole thing, he may not like the idea or only like a few things in it. The idea has to come first. Specifics can be developed by either the player or Ryme as the idea comes to fruition.

Oh and by the way, which assassins are you talking about? Guild Wars perhap? Or is that just a random example?

Odds are TH will never go out of beta. Ever.


No, seriously.

No, it's not.

That's old. I believe Jick said it left open beta when ascension rolled.

Indeed, I recall Jick and possibly Skully saying that KoL was out of beta. All the documentation pages are without a doubt outdated, for the most part.

Part of being a superhero is being socially conscious. You realise that your job is important to the local and national economy. Therefore, both your job and your activities are important the the well-being of the city. And superheroes always pay their taxes, which is why you don't make your living beating up security guards in the casino.

How about removing the autosell value for the Abaddon Charm? I'm always afraid I'll accidentally sell it for a measly 100 chips.

Let's do that with the magic truck vehicle. Then you can get +60 seconds to each turn instead of that measly +30. :/
