Although the central place for this kind of discussion is on the CDO wiki, some may find it helpful to discuss potential requests and suggestions here first.

We should be allowed to sac a leg to RU

It would halve your movement speed, perhaps also forbid boots?

I have a dream where I'd get to sac an arm, a leg, and an eye, becoming all-mighty. Isn't it a thing of beauty?

Do you also get a parrot as a pet?

Re: We should be allowed to sac a leg to RU

Halve movespeed, EV and stealth penalty because people hopping on one leg tend not to stay quiet and dodgy. But keep boots, since sac hand doesn't forbid gloves (right?)

Re: We should be allowed to sac a leg to RU

The *real* question is what happens when a naga sacs a leg?

More seriously: you can already sac EV and stealth; I'm surprised you can't sac speed though.

Semi-related: The 1st time I did “Sacrifice Love” and saw the flavor text ‘You are hated by all’, I assumed it meant shopkeepers as well.

Similar to shops going “bankrupt” when you leave Gozag, I was hoping for a cool sign to hang on all shop doors: “We reserve the right to refuse service to dolemite99.”

Half movement speed is horrific. -2 would be fine, and lose any kick attack.

Re: We should be allowed to sac a leg to RU

Sacrifice a foot would probably be better since you don't sac your entire arm, just your hand and this way the precedent is kept. Slow movement 1 (+ -stealth?) is probably about equal to 1 ring + no shield + one handed only so it could give similar piety.

and yes we do need a "the pirate" skill title for someone who has sacced a hand, eye and leg.

Re: We should be allowed to sac a leg to RU

Sac speed like this should be at least an "incredible" sacrifice, if not more.

...also, if you sacrifice a hand, eye, and leg, you should totally be able to get a parrot familiar that decreases stealth, but adds an auxiliary attack.

And if you liked Ru's passives before, the parrot makes the Depths fights against monster Tengu (Tengi?) even more special.

Or perhaps increases los instead of the aux attack?
