Rod Rework


If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Rod Rework

I believe rods have too many problems that needs to be adressed.
Rods do not work as weapons even though they are considered one, they are also in the wrong category, staves fits a better role for fighting weapon evocables.
They dont work as evocables alone because their recharge and number of charges only means how many times you can use it during a fight, encouraging the player to kite,retreat and rest until it fills up.
Rods suffer from the same problem as old evocables like fan of gales back when you could stack them, giving them too much firepower, though they still have to deal with inventory limit, which is already a pain in the ass.

To adress that i propose:
Move rod effects to quarterstaves and lajatangs and make it their ego, possibly making brand weapon scrolls give them those effects.
Use enchant weapon scrolls to increase their maximum number of charges aswell as their enchantment level.
Get rid of recharge rate, make recharging exp gated.
Staff charges empty when unwielded.

Why did you post this in CYC and not GDD?

Re: Rod Rework

I'd make it staves/quarterstaves only, lajatang are plenty strong on their own.

Re: Rod Rework

I use rods as additional damage before I switch to my 'real' weapons whether they be spells or sword. Hell sometimes you can even kill just with the rods if they're something like Rod of Ignition or Rod of Clouds. Pekalas lets you use them to even greater effect.
