Standardized weapons/armour - nondecay and resetting now?
Just thinking -
Now that weapons are standardized as far as statistics go, would it not make sense that for the same price as anything else, one should be able to nondecay and customize a stock weapon? Ultimately, you're locking yourself into the meager stats at a cost of 150cr (much less than a lvl 1 arte weapon), have a customizeable platform that won't decay as well as a resetting weapon to prevent loss.
It will gain you no benefit, as it's not like the days of old where you had the possibility of non-decaying a suit of 120/107 fullplate or a 243 speed rapier as a knight. All this would do for someone is:
1) Give them the option to further customize that weapon
2) Take away the stress of having a weapon decay after 60 - 120 days and having to purchase a new one
3) Allow them to better create their systems by using the same ID number for tracking/utility in their scripts
OH...but what about forging, won't that make it nearly useless?
I don't believe so, erroneous voice in my head. Mainly because I highly doubt there is a majority of the player base that -would- pay 150 credits to custom/nondecay/resetting a stock weapon...most would just pump out 300cr+ for arte weapons as it were, if that was the case. But, those that do would be locking themselves into that weapon for quite some time. Think also that it's not able to be traded in like a normal artefact weapon, so if they class change it's not like they're getting a benefit back from it (which will deter plenty of people from doing it to begin with).
Thoughts, considerations, additions or subtractions. No multiplication and don't derail the thread. No priest talk.
