Focus Blade Recharging

Post by Noshkapana » Sat Aug 19, 2017 9:04 am

Not sure if this is practical, but I think it would be nice to have your Focus Blade reset the evaporation timer if recast, instead of just making new blades.

For example,

Code: Select all

You begin evoking SoulReaper
   -Check if Inventory is Full
      -If false
         -Check if SoulReaper exists
            -If false
               -You concentrate for a moment and create a SoulReaper!
               -Spawn SoulReaper into Inventory
            -If true
               -You concentrate for a moment and recharge your SoulReaper!
               -Reset the Evaporation Timer to that of a newly forged blade at your level.
      -If true
         -You can not use SoulReaper when your inventory is full
         -Evoke fails
I for one do not keep my Blade at the bottom of my inventory where it spawns. This means a few times during hunting I need to stop, summon, then move my blade back to where it belongs in my pack. "Recharging" the blade allows for the one blade to remain stationary. Also, since Blade cannot be traded, it eliminates the pack clog when repping or replacing blades.

Just a thought.

I like this idea.
The most important lesson I've learned over this past year, is not to let anyone make you cruel. No matter how badly you want to give the world a taste of it's own bitter medicine, it is never worth losing yourself.

I actually like it too. I think it also makes more IC sense. Teachers often task students to make their blade, describe it, name it and such. Well, if you keep making twenty copies of it, it seems less... special. "My immersion!!" basically. The idea of just recharging it makes more sense. It's also a nice quality of life change that makes the game a lot less clunky feely.

The more you plat your blade, the longer it takes to vape. I usually have to toss my blade before it ever vapes on its own.
