I,m thinking about building your own weapons. Let me give an example. Take as example a sword. Brake this sword in three parts. First you got the handle, the protection part between the handle and the blad and then the blade itself.
Every part has he's ability. (example Handle = agility +5, 2nd part = armor + 7 and blad = strength + 12).
There are diffrent types of abilty
strength = attack power
Agilty = Attack speed
stamina = increase health
armor = defend power
intellect = magic attack power
spirit = increase mana
Know give the player the chance to construct there own unique swords. If a player wants to create a fully strength weapon or an defend weapon. He or she can choose for themself.
