Diablo : Kaleidoscope hi all i've been playin diablo like all my life.. so to say.. bt all of it has been singleplayer.. well i didn't have a net connection worthy of online play.. now i'm in the US and sooner or later m gonna try hook-up on the B.net as soon as i get some time.. in the mean time.. i wud like some feedback from all u guyz.. i'm startin on coming up with a NEW FEATURE for D2 series (a class assignment).. And i thought what better place to discuss it than this forums.. (I would like the following feature(s) to be seen as increasing the single-player game value) For starters (and after going through the forums a bit), i concluded that just the old school quest system doesn't pleases a veteran D2 player.. Consider a single-player scenario, is any quest really worth the effort (except for a real few, like the horadric cube and the ones giving skill points).. Enter the D2:Kaleidoscope quests.. The quest has, as its reward - 'The item of your wish' .. I think, and lemme know if u agree with me on this, playing single player, u hardly get the items u want at the right time, even worse u might not get an item ever.. for me, i had one player at level 74 and two characters at 60+ levels.. and never got the SOJ from the game.. EVER.. till i decided it was time for JAMELLA to help me Now I cann't present u the interface(I've in my mind) of selecting the item whn u start the quest.. bt just suppose theres a nifty interface tht lets u select an item.. and theres a constraint U CAN ONLY PLAY FOR ITEMS THAT ARE BELOW (or equal) TO YOUR CHAR LEVEL.. THe quest are only available in the HELL difficulty (after u complete the game in HELL).. And the quest basically boosts ur chances of gettin tht itme by a factor of X.. if u dun get the item u can play the quest again and now the chace will be 10 * X .. so basically if u persist u will eventually get it.. So u get the rough idea.. Q: and its called Kaleidoscope Y.. A: After completing the game, U go to cain and he has learned of this magic portal... so u tell cain of the item u wish for and he combines the items name with this spell to open a portal to the item(Kaledoscope) and this portal looks like u r luking through a kaleidoscope with all the rainbow colors.. Q: wht location the quest plays in.. A: OH! it can be random.. from the deserts of the Act 2 to the never ending forests in act3.. depending upon the LEVEL of item u choose.. the game tends to be more difficult for a more valuable item.. Q:How do u complete the quest.. A: well this is a real tough question.. and i wud welcome suggestions for it.. for now i was thinking of this main area with a chest that supposedly holds the item.. u can just walk up to it and open it up and grab the item, if it spawns and run back.. but that area is highly infested with monsters and is teleport/townportal banned.. so u might wanna kill of some baddies before u make a run for it.. but the idea is to not limit the player to KILL everything.. as soon as he sees it fit, he goes for the item.. Q:Y, I think it'll not ruin the balance of gameplay A: first of all its a single player only quest and can be repeated N number of times.. (SP only, coz on B.Net, hacks will prolly screw everything) .. moreover u then get a chance of building ur player keeping in mind a powerful item.. and not go mad whn u r building a JAV thrower amazon and the game gives u this leet bow.. I mean, there are already many things to frustrate a SP, this might lead to some HONESTLY REWARDING time on D2.. K guyz.. pretty loong post.. im completely open to ideas / suggestion and critiques.. in case u think this will completely BOMB.. plz tell me y.. I wud really appreciate UR FEEDBACK.. Thanks Nik P.S : - the next idea is even better.. and called the D2:KAMiKAZE .. im saving it for laters..
