Renegade343 Posted October 21, 2014 Share Posted October 21, 2014 Hello all, This thread will be detailing a mechanic addition (and some tweaks to compensate) to the Silva and Aegis to make it act more like a sword and shield type weapon. The content is below: The Silva and Aegis is a sword and shield weapon that deals (do not know why) pure Fire Damage. While its stats are alright, it feels like its shield is not doing its intended job, besides from being another weapon to throw about (i.e.: Offhand weapon instead of acting as an actual shield). Thus, to make the shield act like a shield, the mechanic addition is below: When the player holds the Block button, a protective dome will be erected over the player (0.75m radius, with the player as the centre). The dome's colour will be the same energy colour of the Silva and Aegis. All enemies that were within the dome will be repelled back and be ragdolled (or simply pushed) out of the dome (and enemies cannot enter the dome). The dome will block off all enemy fire, and it will still drain stamina from the player when it is hit, but the stamina drain is decreased by 65% (explosions that hit the dome will have its damage decreased by 40%, and Penta/Torid grenades will bounce off the dome). People may notice this mechanic addition is somewhat akin to the Spiral Knights shield functions, which the proposed mechanic is based off of that. To compensate for this, the Silva and Aegis will have its damage decreased to 27 Fire Damage, and a status chance decrease to 15.0%. In PVP, when the player holds the Block button, it will drain stamina regardless (just like the current iteration of blocking in PVP), but the rate of stamina decrease will be 1.5x faster than other weapons, to provide a small balance. With this mechanic addition and tweak, this would allow the Silva and Aegis to act more of a defensive weapon, as well as providing a bit of support from players shielding other players with the dome. Please take the time to read this thread, and provide constructive criticism and feedback. Renegade343 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
