Some Possibly Interesting Modifiers
« on: June 09, 2014, 03:15:09 AM »
Long before even Torchlight 1 was released I used to play another isometric ARPG, Sacred. Sacred was obviously inspired by Diablo a great deal but featured an open world and great depth. That game had some interesting modifiers some of which may be able to be added to Synergies (if modifiers can be added at all).


Chance for open wounds: + X%
This modifier causes the opponent to gradually lose health as if it was burning. However, the total damage inflicted over time is heavily dependant on the damage of the attack that caused the open wound.

Chance to gain gold by hitting opponent: + X
Affects the frequency the golds drops (a la Gold Crab) when an opponent is hit.

Damage received reduces gold, saving health: + X%
Adds a change that damage inflicted reduces your gold instead of your health.

Wounds Increase Damage Dealt: + X%
Increases damage dealt to opponents depending on percentage of health missing.

Each hit drains own life energy: X%
Self explanatory.

Split: + X%
Adds a chance that a hit opponent will be duplicated.

Weapon Damage {Type} +X% {Attribute}
Increases elemental weapon damage by an Attribute.
Example: Weapon Damage Fire + 12% Vitality


What do you guys think?

I like the wounds idea, its something I was semi planning to implement with the ranger.
People motivate themselves, and are inspired by others.

I always liked the Sacred games, some good mechanics and the open world was superb.  I'm looking forward to Sacred 3, but I am even more excited for the Tier 1 sets in Synergies :)
