Hello everyone,

Not to many replies on my question about an items database, and I haven't seen one anywhere.

I'm curious to know if there is a large enough demand for one. If so, with a little help, I would be willing to design a site for this purpose specifically, with the addition of other info possibly later. I'm not a webdesigner, so it wouldn't be anything extraordinary, but simply a means of seeing what is available to be found in the game.

Please feel free to comment as well.

Sorry, but what do you mean with "items database" ?

A list of Items the char has had ? Or what ? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I believe he means something like this

Composite bow
Req Agility : 35
Max charms 3
Damage 2-67
Durability: 12

Studded leather Armor
Req Strength: 35
Max charms: 5
Defense: 100-200
Durability: 15

Tailored Composite Bow
Req Agility: 35
etc.

It would be nice to know what the stat range is on items especially since they are so random. That way you may make decisions on what items to put your best charms in rather than hoarding them for all eternity. If you already have spectacular armor that is close to the best in the game, why bother waiting.

ps. I made these stats up os they are probabaly wrong.
Ah ! Now I understand !

But instead I'd rather like another feature : A smith who is able to remove charms from items ... (Such a thing is coming in the game Sacred.)

Go for it! So long as you realise that most items are random and that only the basic stats should be bothered with.

What I mean by a database is this.

What armors are available to be found
what weapons are available to be found
what helms.....
what boots....
what amulets/necklaces...
what rings...

etc. etc. etc.

Quality of item, i.e., Normal, rare, unique, set, etc.. In DD, this is determined by color, or in the case of a set, the Dragon set. Which is the only "Set" in the game.

What modifiers (prefix's/ suffixes) give what bonus's (or the number of possible bonus's. For example, The merciless prefix gives a real nice dmg bonus, and from what I have seen so far, is a grey color. I haven't seen an item that had the merciless prefix that is any other color but grey. And I have only found two, a death blade and a bow (forget which kind). Max dmg on the bow was over 180 though.

Since all stats are random on items, it will be hard to give exact details. Items are the same, just the quality changes.

Is it done yet, is it done yet, Is it done yet, is it done yet? LOL

What you showed me looked pretty good, I think it will be a nice addition.
