UT Shield: Shield of Cursed Stone
Small sprite for staff:
Projectile: Spirit Bolt
Desc: A shield made of cursed stone, which when pressed to the ground, breathes new life and energy into you and slows down time.
MP Cost: 90
Shots: Omnidirectional (8 shots ep-esque)
Damage per shot: 30-50
Projectile Speed: 50
Projectile Lifetime: 300
Effect: Slowed for 2 secs, Speedy on self for 4 sec
Stats: +9 DEF +5 SPD -3 ATK -3 DEX
Fame Bonus: 5%
Feed Power: -9000
Drops From: Stone Guardians 1/200 (0.005%)
Why is this item unique and balanced?
This shield is unique and balanced because of the speedy and the slowing shield shots making it a good shield to equip while rushing. The slow and omnidirectional shots should make it so you can go through a dungeon without losing a lot of health. It is balanced because it has a -5 ATK and -6 DEX debuff, so that makes it so it is not a viable shield to use as a main shield. Also, the shots of the shield have small range and do not hit enemies unless they are close, but the knight can tank large amounts of damage to rush through things faster. I believe this shield would be a great addition to NR, because of the lack of UT shields. I also believe that it would be useful because it makes the knight so that he/she can rush easier, instead of just equipping a Snake Skin Shield.
EDIT: Changed -3 SPD and DEX to -5 SPD and -6 DEX. Changed +11 DEF and +5 VIT to +9 DEF
EDIT: Changed Curse length to 1 sec
EDIT: Changed range to 1.5
EDIT: Removed Curse and Invulnerability
EDIT: Changed -5 SPD to -5 ATK
@BLOODQWEN Dang it. So, massive debuff, right?
@demonicdennis just thinking that nobody would really use the shield for a knight other than fot the invuln. They already have the most def in the game, and speed and dex are two of the most desirable stats to bonus on a knight so that they can be more of a damage dealer too. I just dont see the use of this shield because you wont have time to equip this to tank an oryx shotgun, for example, and its not useful enough to act as a main shield without needing a swapout.
@LagoonZz It may not be useful enough as a main shield, but it can be used to tank shotguns if you put the shield on right after you stun. By the way, any thoughts on the sprite?
@demonicdennis The purple one looks too vulgar and the yellow/orange one looks like an ogmur with chicken pox so u might want to redesign them slightly
@LagoonZz Um, sure. I'll make it, my dad just brought home a PS4 for some reason :O
- This does not look like the Stone Guards would drop it.
- When would this be used? Seems useless
- Why does this look like a bad reskin of a Shield of the Ogmur? This is supposed to be the color pallet of Oryx's Dungeon
This sprite is ugly AF, and definitely needs some fixing up. There is NO enemy in the game that follows that color pallet. And, finally, when would this be used? couldn't get close to O3 or O4, and not even O2. It could be used for damage, but then why would it need to have the Cursed and Invulnerable debuff? This doesn't seem like the best idea, but i like how you though of the knight and the lack of UT shields!
@demonicdennis Okay lets see...
-This shield actually has no use on game, 1 sec curse is almost nothing and 1 sec invulnerability is nothing as well, even if you have it on while on invulnerability, you can still get negative status such as paralize/slow/confuse/etc...
-The stats are underpowered, you mentioned is for rushing, then why did you put -5 speed?
-This shield is very underpowered in both, damage and utility, its almost like a damaging seal.
-Swap Invulnerability with speedy or something usefull for rushing, changue Curse for something else too, if it is for rushing then you dont need damage.
@xlindowlx I followed your idea, and this shield looks pretty viable now.
@WildguyX I'll try to make a new one, I wanted to make it look a bit cracked. Also, the Stone Guardians follow the purple shield's color pallet. And why does it matter? The Cap sword's color pallet doesn't follow anything in the game. It drops from Shaitain.
Okay, can someone tell me what sprite to use?
this one. But it needs some work
ehhhhhhh. The sprites aren't too pretty.... sorry, but the one that ^^^ chose is just a reskin of the tiered shields. Try to fix that....
@Jmn all the others are reskins of ogmurs and the last one looks like a portal and has nothing to do with shields, so he needs to produce some sprites with more creativity
@LagoonZz yeah, I noticed that. Just didn't mention
I'll try to make some better ones; I think shield sprites are really hard. I'll post them after I find/make them.
@demonicdennis they're hella easy but making them unique is hard.
@Dkjsahfhds Yeah, they either look like tiered shields, ogmurs, or a pile of chalk.
Ok, i dont know how to upload the picture to the post, but just go to ROTMG Art Maker and search in WildguyX. You should find the sprite. Tried to follow the color pallet as much as possible, and kept the same design, just changed the colors. The shield i made (the sprite) was only made to see if you like the way I did it. EDIT: Sprite changed on 6/20/16, 11:04 PM.
Here's a More Unique Sprite i came up with, you just need to tread away from already made sprites.
@xObamax That looks more like a seal to be honest. It needs to be more, eh, i dont know how to put it. Refined?
I like the sprite. The Sprite looks well
@WildguyX Thanks for the design! I think I'll use it to be honest...
Actually, this looks nice:
