AC bonus for str tanks, as well as other things.

Postby 1356890 » Mon Aug 20, 2012 1:12 pm

I think i'd be nice to see more str tanks perhaps. especially if people want to up the power of casters and their dc spells and damage reduction. naturally the problem on bow is that everyone is a dex tank, because sd is op as hell and gives all kinds of defensive bonuses atm, and of course most sds have very bad saves as well as dd's and dex based weapon masters. if it were possible to give characters with more than 28 str +3 natural ac or something. Of course this would not apply to pms, or rdds of a certain level. and maybe even bards as well seeing as most ac str tanks are bards, so maybe like only 1 ac for them. perhaps this could help balance and put more str tanks in the game. also I think that ranger's should get perhaps 2 or 3 bonus ab from their blade thirst spell, and this would not be an enhancement, rather just pure ab.

The thing is that no matter what dodge bonus you give, you're never going to get more than 75ish ac on a str tank at most without something like PM or 20 RDD that gives natural bonus armor. It just doesn't go any higher. I dont think it's possible to give a natural bonus like you suggest.

Dodge Cap, but that is easily fixed.


Make a Buff that takes... lets say the Amulett you are wearing and checks for the Ammount of AC on it then adds X to it and gives it as Buff. If you unequip the Amulett the Buff is lost.
Edit : And dont give any AC to bardlvl > X, dd, pdk.

scripting a natural dodge ac bonus to my understanding would not be a problem seeing as it was the case on dex. Fighters got 1 natural ac every 10 levels as well as 1 ab if I am not mistaken and in addition every 5 levels they could use fighter 'dodge' which was basically divine shield so 30 fighter = 8 dodge ac. i'm not suggesting that we should turn this server into dex but it'd be cool to see non rdd/pm/bard AC str tanks.

Seeing some WM's would be cool too.

If you give AC to WMs, then you will be back here complaining about WMs.

hrm well a str wm right now as like what? 70ish ac, a lot of tanks can get 70 ab pretty easily. i think if you gave weapon masters ac based off of the ab that they get it might be a problem, maybe add in some concealment too and like free epic dodge, sounds like something else i know. 3 ac is not a lot to ask for especially when most sane people make dex tanks because playing a str tank is like asking to get pwned unless it'd a bard rdd/pm or god forbid a dwarven defender.

DD doesnt take any skill. Me steamrolling with Eiserne Front is proof.
