Water walking and currents.

This has probably already been posted but, if you're wearing water walking boots, the currents shouldn't carry you away. I mean, you're walking ON the water. Same with mass. You're super heavy so the currents shouldn't budge you.

    Or at least give us an equivalent of brooch of the tempest for rivers.
    Huh. Neat.

    New logosmas item!

    Brooch of coal!
    When wearing this item you will not be carried away by the currents of rivers.

    30 canes.

    Non-Logosmas name: Brooch of the Salmon ?

    Edit: It should also work for those waves that sometimes move you around on the ocean.

    Brooch of the Rapids? Also, zero reason for it to affect random ocean movements.
    Huh. Neat.

    Or give more delay on the current currents?

    Even this would be a good alternative to what's currently in place. Or make it a percentage based chance whether the current carries you away or not.

    Being a fricking dragon should be enough not to wash you down stream. I'm a giant lizard, this puny current shouldn't make me flow along like a log flume

    Agreed that there should be some skill or some skill based percentage chance of not being washed down/away. And it seems to not respect groups?

    No. If you walk into a river with people, you will be ripped apart. :tired_face:

    I like the current. Without something like that rivers are just a different kind of road.

    This isn't a topic about removing them. This is a topic about mechanics that would make sense to not get carried away by them.

    When you make an effect relatively trivial to ignore you are effectively removing that effect

    Rivers are stupid. 99% of the time, I'm floating in the air over the river so no currents should touch me but no, being a floating, omnitrans, artied, dragon doesn't mean anything vs the oh-so-powerful river.

    So you want to keep an effect that makes zero sense in the world it's in? Just because you would be nullifying the effect?

    Walkin over slugbeast lair, like a boss(Ah, the good days when this used to actually kill people). Oh crap here comes a river, woosh.

    It would still be plenty of a newbie trap, as are many other "effects" in this game.

    I also hope you swim everywhere.

    well, I also find it weird that levitation didn't stop you from falling into river. :D Also you will be still required to swim despite having a levitating effect. :D :D :D
