Good Afternoon everyone i hope everyone is having a great day.
I have ben lurking on the forums and saw some ideas that when combined could make a nice addition to Tau.
So I was thinking of new weapons called Mythic Weapons could work. Not only are they powerful but they also evolve(Evolvable Weapons was created by someone else.)
1.) What are Mythic Weapons?
Mythic Weapons are lost weapons that were made to finally wipeout the sentients using sentient parts. However the Orokin Empire fell before they could be put to use. Over the centuries their power have dwindled and must be restored
2.) How to acquire?
Well I was thinking the actually base blueprint should be obtained from a special vendor, a descendent of the orokin scientist who played a part in the weapons creation who wants the to aid the tenno. You acquire standing with this Vendor by killing sentients in Tau. You then buy the Unrestored weapon. (I was thinking the starting stats of the weapon shouldnt be anything special).
I know DE has to make money so the base weapon is purchasble with plat. But you cant buy higher tiered versions of it.
3.) How to evolve?
So this Restoration system is a combination of the Kingbin System, Artifact Restoration system from Neverwinter.
By killing high ranking Sentients you acquire a variant core. Each time you kill a the target sentient it becomes more powerful(Health, AI intelligence, Attack Variation, Immunity, Ability Suppression, etc). This is to prevent a vet from cheesing this system by killing the Sentient at the same diffuculty.
To give a clear representation, I shall now write a scenario.
I farmed enough standing to buy the Foxfire Pistol. I then use the Kingpin system to track and kill Rathius, the Fox King(Alpha Lupulyst Variant). Each kill drops a Rathius Core. You then proceed to use the cores to restore/upgrade the Foxfire Pistol.
So their are 5 tiers(0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 stars/ or I could make up names for the tier.)
Universally each Weapon require the same number cores to upgrade.
Subject to Change
0 to 1 = 3 cores
1 to 2 = 5 cores
3 to 4 = 8 cores
4 to 5 = 11 cores
Tiers 1 - 3 only does stat increase
Tiers 4 - 5 increases stats and and gains a ability the target sentient has. Also from tier 4 - 5 the strength of the ability increases.
Tier 5 gains a specific visual aura surrounding it.
5.) Aesthetic/ Appearence
Each physical weapon has features similiar to the the Target Sentient.
I love the weapon designs of Warframe but i imagined these weapons looking similiar to something like The Whisper of the Worm sniper from Destiny 2.
Also for each upgrade, improves the Appearence of the weapon like the Evolvable Skins from Fortnite.
@Almighty_Jado I dont know if this idea could work in this concept but i hope it could add a cool task for Veterans to perform. Higher Tier players could finally have something show off.
Note: I am open to constructive criticism, i consider myself a very open minded person.
