Ok, so I came up with a suggestion to kill several birds with one shotgun blast.
Issue 1) CO and SP don't have quests, and it's causing testing, balancing and PQI issues.
We got quite a bit of consensus that they need quests, and are sort of taking it for granted that the devs will add the "complete with any 4 classes - get handed an item" ones.
Issue 2) If they do this what item?
Well, the +9% res both charm for the oasis and the Naga Cauldron for the pits is also the consensus more or less.
Issue 3) But what about power concerns with the CO charm?
Now this is where it gets tricky and hits something else I have a really, really serious issue with. As well as a suggestion, ofc.
If the devs made the +9% both item shopworthy but LARGE, that would be all the balancing, provided they finaly nerf Drac - by adding a damned item to his +15% res both boon simmilar to Taurog's gear. This would go a long way towards balancing Drac (a bit) and making %res stacking a fully inventory management based proposition. The way it is right now, with Drac handing out +15% res both for only 40 piety, and Taurog giving +15% res both for 50 mana, two MP and 2 inventory slots is just terrible.
So the new res stacking item lineup would potentially consist of tower shield, elven boots, two taurog pieces, 1 drac piece, CO charm and Dragonshield, and could not easily be crammed into any inventory. As long as they are all large items, ofc.
Please, do this, devs. And please comment upon this, everyone, so we can talk the devs into doing this.
I almost got pwned by Shifty Brickwork!
