Bombs : possible new game mecanic

Post by sacriopsmen » 11 Mar 2016, 14:10

This is just an idea, but that could be a real revolution in TMW if applied. So, the idea is creating an item that can be used to inflict zone damages to players and monsters alike. A bomb you drop and after 3-5 sec, boom, anything within a certain range is damaged, by a fixed amount of damage.

We could probably make that out of the code used for white slimes. Also, that could be something new in PvP. Sometimes allowed, sometimes forbidden. There could actually even be builds centered around bombs. With few dex cause they don't actually need to hit, lot of STR, cause bombs would be heavy, making them harder to use for other classes, lots of Vit to survive some of their own hits, and monsters, and Agi and/or speed skill, to avoid monsters and walk away faster from their bombs.

It is probably possible to code the bombs to not damage the others players that don't use bombs. Why ? Simple, trolls. If we add bombs that damage all the player, we provide a way to kill players who are not in PvP mode, helping trolls do their evil actions in the other hand, if it only damages the launcher in all cases but PvP, it could be used in combination with two/three tanks to wipe out large numbers of enemies, making the game quite easier for the bomb users once monsters are correctly gathered in one place.

Also note that trolls already have black magic to attack other players out of PvP.

It's not flawless but if the idea is popular, we could at least plan to make it into the game.
Ingame : "Lord Vlad" my archer-healer or "nanogreedy" my vunerable and pretty useless tank.
I also have an archer used as a shop : Vladshop. But it's not my favourite.

this could work with puppets/nodes. I don't think there's a way to make this work in Hercules without modifying the server though
