Suggested Quest - Gold Warlord Plate

Hi TMW Team,

I would like to see a quest for the 'Gold Warlord Armor" re-initiated. (Since the necessary artwork already exists for that item)

My starting suggestion is:

That the story is:
The Blacksmith needs clothes under his Heatproof Apron, but they need to be lightweight and not restrict his movement.
As such he is looking for a set of Tank Tops, and Shorts for summer (one of each color), and a set of Shirts and Robes for winter (one of each color).
As a reward he will upgrade a character's "Warlord Armor", to "Golden Warlord Armor", but will take all the items supplied as payment.

It will be a very time consuming quest, but it is not difficult.

Regards
ikms

Keep in mind that gold is a very malleable alloy and will not protect one well against blows. If anything, the Gold Warlord Plate should be lowered in defense for technical purposes. Unless someone would like to make it magic. :wink:

Hi kr0n05931,

"Keep in mind that gold is a very malleable alloy and will not protect one well against blows. If anything, the Gold Warlord Plate should be lowered in defense for technical purposes. Unless someone would like to make it magic"

Yes I agree, that Gold would be a poor choice (a weaker metal) to make defensive armor out of, but as the blacksmith isnt rich,
He is only adding a very fine coating of Gold over the Characters existing warlord armor

So the upgrade is really only cosmetic, the original warlord plate armor is underneath, but it now have a coating of fine gold in places.
the Blacksmith may even strenthen the original armor a little and require the Character to be at a certain level to carry the added weight

At least this is what I was thinking .........

When you want a stronger armor you can have a warlord plate in any other color, but the golden armors should be reserved for special occasions.

Carbon fibers don't fit in with the rest of the game too well.

Maybe if you guys could make a quest that is very difficult to do, that would take MORE than a day to do it for Gold Warlord Plate, the quests we have right now always take at least 10-30 minutes to complete and I would like to see a quest that would take a very long time to complete :P

Carbon
diamonds are carbon(in a special form)
and as far as i know diamonds are the hardest material which is temporarily explored BUT they're very expensive...
Graphite, another form of Carbon is weak and breaks fast...
i don't think carbon is the right stuff for this game...

Mythryl, drake-scales, or even titanium seem to fit the world better. Carbon fiber would be to hard to make with their limited tools.

And Titanium rather expensive. ;)
We also should avoid Platinum, as it's also difficult to refine.

but... platinum and titanium look nearly like iron if i'm right... the warlord plate(standart) looks like iron too...

EDIT: the standart warlord plate IS iron lol

Carbon is a very strange material. In it's regular formation, it is a very brittle non-metal; however, if it is arranged in a certain way it can be as hard as a diamond. Carbon is also used in the refining of iron to steel. So carbon is much too broad of a subject, try 'diamond', 'steel', or 'graphite' (In order from hardest to most brittle)

IMHO it should be like this:

Gemstone/polished armors for mages:

Amethyst (lowest) (basic resistance)
Jade (water resistance)
Opal (light magic resistance)
Black Opal (black magic resistance)
Polished Snowflake Obsidian (Melee/black resisitance
Quartz (Melee/electricity resistance)
Polished Granite (Melee/earth/fire resistance)
Diamond (highest) (Melee and light magic resistance

I would suggest light armors for rangers as they need flexibility most of all, and need to be light. Insect exoskeletons or hides would be the way to go here.

Maggot Armor (lowest) (basic defense)
Giant Maggot Armor (Earth magic defense)
Mouboo Hide (Melee defense)
Slime Jelly (in order of colors)
Snake Skin (Melee defense)
Trozz Hide (Black magic defense)

And of course, meleers need heavy protection, metals, stones, and metalloids should work here quite well.

Aluminum Armor (lowest) (basic resistance; lowered melee defense, higher attack)
Talc Armor (water magic resistance)
Bronze Armor (Melee, ranged, and earth defense)
Iron Armor (Melee and ranged defense)
Steel Armor (Melee and ranged defense)
Titanium Armor (Melee defense)
Basalt Armor (Water magic defense)
Unpolished Granite (Fire/earth/melee defense)
