The concept of Legendary items...

Post by 3mptylord on Sat Aug 29, 2009 7:23 am

First topic message reminder :

Currently, in RuneScape, legendary items are generically the best. Their states, their effects, etc. But does anyone else dislike this? I've always preferred that a legendary item merely represented wealth, achievement or is worn for it's appearance or effect and not because it's generically better than modern equipment. For example, chromatic equipment (bronze through to new equipment) should forever excel what you can obtain from the past in terms of defensiveness. However, legendary items represent more than that. Dragon stands for wealth with the Barrows' equipment worn for their effects... the choice of smithed armour that may be better vs an effect like Guthan's? I don't know, what do you guys think?

Fable, Pokemon, etc, they all use Legendary items for being unique and not necessarily better. Fable has a weapon called the Hammerthyst and it's epic when you receive it because it excels anything your level could possibly own and it's got a nifty Augment. However, as you progress further into the game it's surpassed by chromatic equipment. I think that the Master Cutlass is the best weapon in the game, but some legendary items have effects that would make them desirable over the Master Cutlass. Umm... such as that one which deals double damage to the undead. Smile

If all good things come to an end then we're living in a world where evil wins. 

If there once was love then maybe something survived. If we find a single diamond in the rough then it's worth it. Through a thousand tears if there's one drop of love then it's worth it.

Lol - I don't know why I put that much. Confuse

Wasn't that my point?

No, The godsword is a weapon made by ancient smiths for the use of MORTALS, the Barrows armour was enchanted and made by sliske for HUMAN WARRIORS. Dragon was made by the dragonkin as a powerful armour. Therefore they are powerful because of tehir own attributes

Your "Ancient Smiths" are mortals, however powerful. We do not yet know of an item created by the gods. Smile

I understand both Dark and 3mpty's argument, but, over all, I prefer 3mpty's. For whatever reasoning their is behind the legendary items, and I'm sure some can be better (end of) purely because of difficultly to obtain (or otherwise). But the majority shouldn't. Maybe it's just the Fable-fan in me.

Speaking of InMe, great band!
