Wow very very nice sets.... one question though if you use a str set on an elf do we get the helm or does it change to a tiara like the 55 sets?

Ooh I see new talons for birds! Hopefully when thrown they don't simply look like those chicken drumstick projectiles lol

Twinks should become more popular now.

I think STS is obsessed with shiny gemstones :D

I wonder what the gold drop rate will be

Glauk
04-28-2011, 02:21 PM
I can see it now...pink drop rates will be high for the first 24 hours and every high level will be in there farming the bejesus out of it. The players that are on here 24/7 and have amassed millions in gold will hold on to the sets and the CS prices will be so high that any normal 20 to 25 level will never be able to afford them.

They will then brag about how many sets they have, which in turn, will catch the DEVs eye as these aggravated lower levels will come to the forums to complain. The DEVs will nerf the drop rates, and the average player will get the shaft once again. Which in turn will make the campaign into another ghost town like the swamps.

Was lvl 20/25 always the idea ? I ask cause placment of sandstone caves was behind sewers? Was this a levl cap for 55s/56 but since It leaked ,that was nerferd?

One question though is it 3 sets total or three sets for each class? I think its 3 sets one for each class but I do have the doubt.

It looks like 3 per class seeing as there's 2 strength sets in the pictures

Nope I think the bird is using a wing (very kool looking) and talon.

I hope the sets come from lvl 20 and 25 and not 21 and up.

It would be cool if higher level characters were not allowed to joing, for a while. Just like low level characters can't join Sewers, no high level characters in Sandstone Caves - would make the challenge a lot more fun.

I have a level 20 Bird ready to go... Add me if you want - AddictedBirdy

I think it will be more fun trying to run it with level 20s than with my level 55 characters, especially the first few days.

Maybe they put forth extra effort due to feedback that BS gear was visually underwhelming ;)

Glad I coincidentally made a twink last week to go play here!

Hmmm..

What i think to happens.. SOO much booting out!! All lvl 50-56 start farming there and boot newbies out -.- thats shame becouse every one of us been there lower level and someone help u up.

Other thing what is in this topick allready.. 24/7 farmers gets lots of sets and price in cs will be 200k+ if drop rate is high enough and how many lvl20 has that much gold?? I remember how hard is to get gold to buy stuff or potions that lvl and i mean normal player not hardcore.

If drop rate is low thats not intresting long so this is awkward situation.

I hope devs. think this and find out solution.

Im so happy to get new quests to do and why not intrested so cool looking black set to mage.
I say this allready when im in there host I DONT BOOT LOWERS OUT! becouse i get sooo much help when i survive this mystical world :)

\\Peace//

04-29-2011, 03:05 AM
Drop rate will probably be pretty low. Why would they jack it up more than other levels? It is the way it always is...new gear = expensive, then drops in price as more become available.

50-56s will just for their own games, hopefully. I know I will, and put a password on it so my friends can join. Or I'll just play on a twink.

Well what a awesome game it is if all players think and act smart like that... some not just get that privacy = password

partys will be 55-66 or 20-25. i will boot all 20 in my 55 party... theres no reason to mix up.
and yes loot rate will be quite low, but its no elite dungeon, so for 55 will be like rushing to boss...

Guys, it's basically a twink map.
How many of you cared about links on your first char leveling up? I know I didn't.
So prices shouldn't matter.

Personally, I don't understand all this going backwards and making new/improved lower level areas/gear that look cooler than the higher lvl stuff. Is it an attempt to get people to buy more chars to start over with?

I dunno, I haven't played enough MMO's to answer this question -- but have other games ever done that before?

there are always a loot newcomers in pl. may devs figured out they stop plaing at a certain level (may 20-30 who knows). so sts gives them more to play and enjoy the game. level 55 players arent that much as the great mass of 1-30.

Click the checkbox called "disable xp gain" and farm with characters who might actually die. It is more fun that way.

BeardedBear

For those of you saying this is an improvement from BS's gear, it's on the same scale if you ask me. Gear looks like its still based of the type of characters you have. (tiara's on mages, helms on bears, etc) Seemed liked the devs took the easy route for BS and if they stick to this model, that's a shame moving forward.

Dude, it's a tiara but it is a mean-looking tiara. This is a vast improvement on the BS stuff, imho. All the other gear looks pretty dissimilar to anything previous.

You guys forget that as a "free" base application, they have size limitations and do a fair job of balancing out features, goodies, etc with being limited on .ipa size. If they redesigned every piece of gear, implemented all these suggestions we have accrued...well, PL wouldn't be free anymore (not going into optional plat items).

Don't get me wrong, the items looking absolutely awesome, maybe I should have started by saying that. DEVS THEY LOOK GREAT!

I was getting at how BS gear is, for example, you use a str helm on a mage, and it's still looks the same as a dex cap, or a str helm. I hope that's not going to continue to happen!

Oh yeah, I see what you mean. I was kinda disappointed (but laughed too) when I put the Shield of Gratitude on my pally and now I have a mage carrying a sword and silver/purple bracer, instead of the cool Shield that bears get with the Gratz Shield.

Btw, did anyone notice the bear character named 'Bigsword' is carrying a hammer? :p and the bird armor looks epic.

I'm kind of hoping that the loot won't be scaled and they will only be level 25. Why? Well, if it is scaled, there will be a ton of lv20 farming, and these will just be better items for level 20 twinks. People have been twinking at 20 for awhile, and I wouldn't mind level 25 twinking becoming popular. ;)

Eh.. booting players from their owns level maps is kinda sad... reminds me of being booted from keeper runs as a 49.

Lock your games?

Level 25's are actually pretty common.

Twinking is getting more and more common. This is expected. I'm torn between selling my sniper xbow thinking there will be a better one, or the cbow from SC will blow and prices inflate on Sniper Xbow..

You want to restrict the availability of something, to popularize something else? I doubt that's going to go over well with anyone.

Level 50 Void/Cosmos/Rift wasn't scaled, and I think it was the most successful campaign so far. Awesome gear and dungeons, just like this. Just a possibility. :)

noobmigo
04-30-2011, 08:18 PM
Most weren't even aware that Pocket Legends had an item scaling system in-place during the majority of AO3's dominant expansion run. Like I said, that's just restriction for the sake of popularizing something else, which is my opinion, is bodaciously whack, mac.

Err..pimp less? Nah, joke.

I really don't think it should be not scaled (Did that make sense?)
I mean, scaling is better. If you want 25 items, just go farm with your 55.
If you want 20 items, go farm with your 20.
Happiness for everyone, eh?
