"broken auras"

Recommended Posts

anniversary crits should have a broken aura that does different things when all from the same set are in a rit together. like all the aramors gain def boost but only works if all the anni of the same type are in the same rit. hollows could have regen boost.

I like the idea, but not the boost (only because aramors would be too overpowered thus, and of course this would upset only a very small niche, but nevertheless)

I would prefer that the Anniversary's remain a nice collectable rather than... a serious 'meta' when it comes to creature fights. While there might not be a massive issue with current size of the player-base, if there were, say, 1000 players that would make the combat situation worse than the shop did with tokens. At least there is no limit to the amount of tokens in the realm!

aramor's wont ever be a serious contender for being top of the combat food chain as it were. they are single target, and creature starts are useless beyond a point. a defence boost doesnt mean all that much in context of drachs being able to target all and one shot. the other issue with aramor's is not all of them are upgradable past level 1, which also hurts their viability.  the fundamental issue with the suggestion is that there are currently 5 diferent types of aramor, but they have a ritual limit of 3, which i think doesnt need to actually exist for this creature as it's not got a high power threshold to begin wit,h so limiting it doesn't prevent that much abuse like it does with drachs.

anniv hollows are already pretty strong. but they wont replace trees in every situation. they have the same VE as a coloured maxed tree and even more regen yet people still use even un upgraded tree's due to availability without being at a disadvantage. and again, there are 3 anniv HW's now, with a limit of 3, so adding another one will also not allow this suggestion to work, however this limit actually does make sense in some ways due to rituals with 6 anniv HW being a great defensive sponge for stat farming. that being said, if people really wanted to go for a 6 creature ritual that does that, they would use 3 tree's 3 HW, so you could make an arguement for removing this restriction as well, if someone is able to get 6 anniv hollow's then all the power to them, they would alos be able to get 3 coloured tree's and 3 anniv barrens just as easily.

it could be said tha tif you have a ritual with the max allowed of all different anniversary types you get a bonus based on what that creature is "doing" aramor's do damage, so potentially they could provide some added flat attack to the aramor's , or activate a creatureboost % damage type effect since the creatureboost only applies to the regular aramor and would be useless in this situation. it wouldnt be "meta" defining, but does allow some additional options for low stat players that dont have tokens, or even players that do have them and rely on them for doing things. imperial aramor stacking already does this same thing, but better. 

hollows heal, so potentialy a power/regen buff to all HW in the ritual.

why not make them both as a collectors item owning all of them (such as snowmen) should give something and for those who can't afford crit slots they are being forced to give up doing eeither collecting or power crits.

I should think the guaranteed rarity enough of an incentive to keep them over a 'strong' creature personally if a lack of creature slots is an issue. Unless you prefer strong creatures, that is.

I sense a Ledah vs. Ledah coming on...

Annivs will always be rare, adding things to them will only add to the people who care enough to collect them, which I'm one of so my opinion is too biased to weigh in on whether this idea should go ahead or not (because I think it should and also Annivs should have their own creature species limit 6 so they can me proudly displayed)

      Howdy MD! As it's the anniversary, a time of celebration and commemoration, I'd like for us to take a moment to reflect on things that may have been forgotten by some folks. The premise is simple: I want you to do some research on Land Weapons and send in your findings. For transparency's sake, I plan to make all entries public after judging is complete, but if requested I'm willing to redact parts. So without further ado, here are your research prompts, use as many or few as you like, but I do expect some details from each prompt to be in your submission, even if you don't directly address the question. However, the final two are mandatory.
       
      What is a Land Weapon?
      How many are there?
      Where are they?
      What do they do?
      How are they activated?
      How are they powered?
      How are they controlled?
      What would happen to it if a Land were to lose its Weapon, or access thereto?
      For each Land that contains a Land Weapon, imagine you are a citizen with full control over the Weapon and explain how you'd use your Homeland's Weapon to help your fellow citizens.
      For each Land that contains a Land Weapon, imagine you are an infiltrator who has seized control of the Weapon and explain how you'd use it to disrupt your enemies.
       
      Some might say this is a cheap data-mining attempt, so to offset said cheapness I'll be personally sponsoring a Tainted Angien, to be rewarded if:
      1. There are at least 10 entries, each with at least one interesting idea in them. Doesn't have to be original, but it must to be interesting.
      2. The judge(s) determine that one entry stands above the rest as particularly insightful, well-researched or creative.
      So now it's an expensive data-mining attempt! Take that imaginary critics!
       
      I'll also be sponsoring a pack of Molima-related resources, which includes 5 glue, a skull and some garbage, maybe a couple others (I need to check what he costs again to be sure, will do so once I return to the mainland), as well as one History of the Elucubration Creature item (I promised this item to Zleip as a sponsorship for one of his quests in the past, but that was years ago, so I'm invoking the statute of limitations. Sorry Z!). These rewards will go to either first and second or second and third, or may be distributed differently, pursuant to possible further sponsorships.
      NOTE: It seems the History of the Elu items aren't working...I hope they're fixable! I'll make a bug report.
       
      Speaking of which, other sponsorships are, of course, very welcome!
      Entries are to be forum PM'd to me. They can be as long or as short as you like and may include images if you wish to do so.
      Anybody willing to help judge would be greatly appreciated. The only prerequisite being that you have what you consider a good baseline knowledge about Land Weapons. I'd like to specifically request Chew or Mur to help judge this (and especially to help redact the published answers!) if either of you have the time/energy, but if not we shall make due! If nobody wants to be a judge, I'll instead write up some criteria and have each participant mark other entries, and average that score with my judgement on the same criteria.
      Get crackin', folks!
