Elemental Damage Colums

What's the point of including three rows of zeros in an already cramped table? ROBERTDH (talk) 23:02, 30 March 2015 (CDT)

Responding late to this, since I thought I had but apparently didn't. I had included the three elemental damage columns at the original release, since I wasn't sure how/if elemental damage stats of the various shaped options would need to be displayed. E.g. a line for stone broadsword, another line for fiery broadsword, another for icy broadsword, etc. Since it just ended up being a 100% conversion of the highest physical stat to the relevant elemental stat, I went ahead and removed the columns a few months back.--ABSOLON (talk) 20:00, 18 June 2015 (CDT)

tier 5 weps

I fixed and added the tier 5 weapons, some were placed incorrectly in tier 4. I'm assuming the blunts are mislabeled for the tech requirements, as there should be proficient blunt and not expert. -ashbomb

tier 2 LE apps

Here are tier 2 LE weapons if somebody wants to add them - I don't trust my wiki editing to not screw something up:


A crude stone broadsword is a heavy edged melee-ranged weapon. A crude stone broadsword trains the large edged skill.

You are certain that it could do:

 poor (2/26) puncture damage
 somewhat heavy (8/26) slice damage
 somewhat fair (4/26) impact damage
 no (0/26) fire damage
 no (0/26) cold damage
 no (0/26) electric damage

The stone broadsword is dismally (2/17) designed for improving the force of your attacks.

You are certain that the broadsword is fairly (5/15) balanced and is decently (6/15) suited to gaining extra attack power from your strength.

You are certain that the stone broadsword is appreciably susceptible to damage (7/18), and is in pristine condition (98-100%).

You are certain that the stone broadsword weighs exactly 35 stones. You are certain that the stone broadsword is worth exactly 230 Lirums. Roundtime: 16 seconds.


> A crude stone nimsha is a heavy edged melee-ranged weapon. A crude stone nimsha trains the large edged skill.

 somewhat moderate (6/26) slice damage

 no (0/26) cold damage
 no (0/26) electric damage

The stone nimsha is dismally (2/17) designed for improving the force of your attacks.

You are certain that the nimsha is decently (6/15) balanced and is fairly (5/15) suited to gaining extra attack power from your strength.

You are certain that the stone nimsha is appreciably susceptible to damage (7/18), and is in pristine condition (98-100%).

You are certain that the stone nimsha weighs exactly 40 stones. You are certain that the stone nimsha is worth exactly 250 Lirums. Roundtime: 16 seconds.

Done, thanks!--ABSOLON (talk) 15:52, 28 March 2015 (CDT)

Quality Adjective

Tier 4 and 5 weapons need a quality adjective. This should be a simple thing to add. Tier 2 already has one, crude. --VMPHNTRD (talk) 18:57, 17 June 2015 (CDT)

Unless there was an update, which I can't find announced on the boards (it's possible it's buried in a thread I haven't read yet) then there is no adjectives for any of the elemental weapons aside from 'crude' for tier 2. That's what the 'n/a' entry means in the table: not applicable. I.e. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th tier versions of each weapon are visually identical and only vary in appraisal.--ABSOLON (talk) 01:15, 18 June 2015 (CDT)
Right, hence, my belief that the weapons need them. --VMPHNTRD (talk) 18:40, 18 June 2015 (CDT)
Oh. The purpose of the talk pages on the wiki are not to discuss the abilities themselves, but rather to discuss changes to or errors within page contents. The official game forums are where you should take any suggestions for improvement to an ability, since the GMs likely will never see this page.--ABSOLON (talk) 19:54, 18 June 2015 (CDT)
Apologies for the confusion. Thanks for the redirect. --VMPHNTRD (talk) 20:53, 18 June 2015 (CDT)

Notes

(1) Creatures can steal elemental weapons - As of 62 days, 463 years AVL [24 October 2020] creatures with the ability to steal weapons, such as scavenger trolls can snatch, hold and wield an elemental weapon until it crumbles. No atmospheric message is emitted when an elmental weapon crumbles in a creature's inventory; it just vanishes. I am uncertain of the timer but guess it may be the same as when stowed in your own inventory (~45 Sec). --VMPHNTRD (talk) 09:22, 24 October 2020 (CDT)

  • SNATCH:

The scavenger troll exclaims, "Gimmie dat electric nimsha!"
The scavenger troll reaches towards you, its claws greedily opening and closing. It grabs your nimsha and wrenches it from your hand.
Roundtime: 4 sec.

  • HOLD:

LOOK TROLL: You see a scavenger troll.
It is carrying a phosphorescent ash grey electric nimsha.

  • WIELD:

Tentatively, a scavenger troll jabs a phosphorescent ash grey electric nimsha at you. You knock aside some of the nimsha with a simple steel parry stick.

[after a few attacks with the stolen weapon]
  • VANISH:

LOOK TROLL: You see a scavenger troll.
It is carrying nothing!
