Your ideas for new Artifact Combinations

Postby Artifact Combinations » Jan 7 2006, 22:43

I think Equilibrius should add some new artifact combinations like those from "The Gathering Storms". Post your ideas about combination artifacts and what effect it should be when you have all of theme equiped here.

Here's one of my ideas:

1. St. Ranan's staff
2. Ankh of Life
3. Orb of Ressurection - hero with expert ressurection skill can ressurect fallen heroes after battle.

Hero wearing all of thiese artifacts can summon all fallen units (all at least most of theme) after battle.

Well all of them would mean that you wouldn't lose any creatures ever... Gaining +25% to Ressurection should be more than enough.

I thought for artifact combination for each fraction:

CHAOS:

Grants all friedly targets with Cat Reflexes and Bloodlust:

DEATH:

Casts automatically Mass Curse, Mass Weakness & Mass Sorrow when combat starts

LIFE:

Casts automatically Mass Bless and all Mass Wards when combat starts

NATURE:

Grants all friedly targets with Unlimite Retaliation skill and Snake Strike/ or Fortune/ or Giant Strength

ORDER:

??? I've got no idea

MIGHT:

Grants all friendly targets with Antimagic or just give them Immune to Magic skill

To powerful.But,combining shield and armor of something should give some great effect.Maybe even one other artifact can be added.Example:shield of life+armor of life+angelic blade blesses the whole army and grants the hero with guarding angel and/or heavenly shield,or it could grant the hero the ability to cast guardian angel at half cost,even if he doesnt have the spell.For order this could be shield of order+armor of order+wand of ice bold grants all creatures immunity to cold spells and effects,and the hero can ignore wards when casting spells,or all of his spells could cost less,or he can cast hypnotize at half cost.

And I think there already is a combination of saint ranans staf,ankh of life and orb of ressurection.

IMPOSSIBLE!! Orb of ressurection doesn't exist :P
There is combination og GM ressurection, ankh of life and St. ranans staff you get 100% ressurect.


Another idea:
1. Angel's Blade
2. Demonary
3. Laprecheun'r ring
4. Fireproof Boots.
5. Mages Robe
6. Spear of Centaur

Effect:
Theres no affection on morale if you have units of different aligment in this heroes army.

Ups,my bad.

How about maratheas mug+cards of prophecy+four leaf clover=negates morale penalty for mixing creatures.

Adamantine armor+adamantine shield+bull rune axe(is that the one that gives + 40% to attack?If its not,then its axe of legends,I always mix those two)=cast blood frenzy and celestial armor at the begining of the battle.

Boots of speed+equaestrians gloves+breeze the falcon+sextant=gives+25% to all scouting skills(increases speed,scouting radious and seamanship.If any of those skills doesnt exist,hero gets them as basic skills)

Arrows of slaying+flaming+stunning+spider silk gives hero 1 bonus ranged attack and infinite ammo.

It is my idea, but with combination of new artifacts. I havent written about them as I haven't enough time to think about them.

For each fraction-combination would be at least 3 artifacts of their god:

ex. for chaos
(only for chaos alligned heroes, it means nature & death as well will have the bonus)

mass bloodlust & catreflex would be the bonus

- ***'s Sword, gives +10 Att and f.strike

- ***'s Shield/Armour, +10 def M/R + hydra health

-***' Helmet, haste, +7mana/day

Each one is not so powerful ,but together reveal the pure Chaos power of their God (***). Just to think about the religions.

In my previous post are only special effects, have to think about order...

As for idea with combining the existing artifacts, it's not bad, but I like them as they're now :)

Perhaps this would be good combination for order:

Artifacts:
1. Armor of Order (major)
2. Shield of Order (major)
3. Sword of Order - do 35% more damage to chaos aligned opponentsž
4. Mage's Robe (major)

Effect:
Casts mass blur, mass slow and mass precision. Also, ice bolt and magic fist damage of heroes with this artifacts is increased.
I am back and ready to... ready to... post things.

Or as for order to disable the opp. from casting spells :)
Yeah It would be realy powerful, but probably might be overpowered as well.

I think that would be better for Might as they HATE magic.

Combination could be:

Axe of Legends (major)
Medal of Honor (minor)
Unnatural Armor (major)
Unnatural Shield (major)

What do you think?

How about a major-minor artifact that give lightning resistant?
Since we have a sugestion about an item that allows you to cast mass spells how about one that disables the ability to cast mass spells?

Here's an idea for Death:

1. Demonary (minor)
2. Amulet of fear (minor)
3. Armor of Death (major)
4. Soul Stealer (major)

Effect:
Casts plague, life drain, mass curse and mass sorrow.

I'd like to see this one:

Wearing the Mantle of Spell Turning, Mirror of Revenge, and the Witch's Ring grants all creatures Retribution, Magic Mirror and Pain Mirror.

Not overpowered, especially since the heroes don't get the bonus, and still a nasty surprise for any opposing army whether magic or might based.

Retribution+ Pain mirrior is too much :what: , it shouldn't reflect too much dmg as your troops will be nearly indestructible 8| . Single pain miror is better than efreet fireshield :devious:

But as for the idea of Mass Magic Mirror combined with Mass Pain Mirror it's too powerful even for 3 Major artifacts. :nervous: Consider those for TGS which affect only heroes.

Your idea is to have:
-mass misfortune on all enemy units
-magic morror on all your creatures
-pain miror on all your creatures
-70% resistance for hero
-mana drain [nasty tactic against benefitial spells]

so the enemy would be automatically-> :rip:

Fortotten to add, that the take only your RING, NECK & SHOULDERS.
You have still place for ex. shield+%def, sword +%att, and another ring (Ring of Permamency which negates all Dispels)
As I said, too anihilating for any army

But having magic mirror to all creatures is an excelent idea.And this sounds like a right artifact combination for that.

Mass Magic mirror would be great particularly vs. Order, Death & chaos. But both magical & phisical (pain mirror) reflection is too much.

There could be some combination maby which could grant all creatures with pain mirror, but not with both spells...

An artifact giving all creatures pain mirror needs to be a hard one to get.A really hard one.So heres my proposal:Adamantine shield+armor+helm of comand+sword of gods+robe of the guardian.Maybe even some ring could be added here(wizards ring,just as a joke :devil: )
