Thread: The Gambling Dens...

  1. #1

    Default The Gambling Dens...

    How about making the gambling dens more interesting? Perhaps instead of
    getting formulas there could be other things available? No one really uses
    the dens now. Or quests from the bots? Or more interaction than just giving
    them some coin and waiting to see the outcome.

    Pets, Fireworks and Statues. That is what you can get for playing at a gambling hall. Far more than formulas.

    How about something like this: you take loot that usually goes to the Pawnbroker
    or Rahool but take it to the gambling den. You offer up a piece and you might
    get something better or you might get nothing at all.

    I would rather see an Expanded wining table Like If i put in 100 s i might have access to a rare spell formula or tech/ tech kit instead of 5 mirt tokens

    The reward from the den will ALWAYS be tokens because its easier for us to set it up and balance it that way.

    You then take the tokens you have won to the vendor and buy your prizes. Not sure if they have them in Europe, but in many Arcades here in the US like Dave & Busters thats how it works (you win tickets, you take the tickets to a desk to "buy" a prize).

    Its easier for us to add new prizes that way.

    @Cixi: You can currently do something like this... Take your junk/hoard, sell it to a junk dealer for coin, go to the gambling hall with your new coin.

    That makes sense, in the spirit of gambling would it take too much work to design a Random spell box Beginner J man and Expert that pops out Random formula when used. Same for armor forms or even made version of spells or blight armor perhaps with OLD techs when used ?

    Well, we do have the random boxes for formulas. You can get them from a Formulatron. I don't think people like them much because its random and its possible you will get a formula you already have.

    And unfortunately we cannot pre-tech equipment at this time. Its definitely something I would love to do, but the tech isn't there.

    Ok I do agree Perhaps make them ADV school specific and cheep enough to eliminate the these never work argument If they only cost 10 gold tokens or so

    That would be a no.

    Blighted Items are techniqued by the system randomly when the item is created for loot.
