Moonblade

Post by Raigen.Convict » Sat Jan 04, 2020 4:39 am

I had a thought of a potential skill for the 'moonblade' sword which uses its effect it applies on hit to deal light damage with a chance to blind. It could be something else but, I figured not many would use the moonblade in the first place.

I personally would give it the potential to get a buff for each phase of Iahsus.
Red = STR
Purple = RES
Orange = DEF
Yellow = LUC
Inactive = SKI

It's uhh, moonblade, not Iahsusblade. I'd like a Iahsusblade though.

As for the potential, something tied to exorcising would be nice, instead. Imagine a blade that has Holy for potential, but can also be Vorpal'd or Rebellion'd? People would definitely stop using the meta blades in exchange for this and Kpec would be baffled.

Isn't this more of a suggestion than a balance fu? It doesn't seem like a thread trying to balance anything, honestly.
I have nothing useful to contribute to this signature.

Moonblade is a bit weak and has been regarded as a meme weapon for nearly a decade, it probably belongs in balance fu regardless.

A moon has more correlation to a hanging "star" in the sky than another attempt at using holy cheese with a vorpal slapped on it.

I really like that idea K Pec. To further add onto being stronger at night, I'd love for it to maybe have a Dark Souls esque potential skill called Lunar Slash - Which releases a slash of moonlight that deals unresistable light or akashic magical damage that scales off your SWA + Light ATK in a 7 range tile line. It can hit multiple enemies.
