    A way to breath life into Doom after Sept 2013.

    Add those yellow crystals to the drop list. Still have to kill it and the RNG decides if you even get a Garb. Other crystals would be the trapped type. Ohhh lets seee, Dread Warhorse trapped in a crystal. Dread Swampy and even a greater dragon with the WW colors. Still add the will of the RNG for getting a pet spawning with great stats. The ability to gather a pack of crystal released Dark Wolves they wouldn't lets us keep from the dread warhorse days. Even a nightsight mod removal crystal has worth. Higher Durability removal crystal. The mod showing on a shield like lower requirement on weapons is just another form of neg mod.

    Add to the Doom drop list RNGed gear with a single reforged mod clean of neg mods. The RNG reforged gear would be titled like "Doom Plate Gorget" so they would be reconized as an arty for turn in value. The RNG could also decide between 450, 500 or rare chance 550 imbue point cap. GM ID Item/GM Tink skill needed to unlock item of better then 450 cap. Could also have an unlock for the Doom Gear having a chance ability to auto save at enhancing. This Unlock would be a sort of Juka Lord bow mod ability.

    Water out the Doom drop list of possiblities some more. Add in current artifacts as a drop that are brittle/replica that can be imbued and enhanced. Take other arty from other areas of the game that drop as brittle/replica that can be imbued and enhanced. Theese none standard Doom arty could be rotated in keep the drop list fresh. Beside brittle/replica could have the return of the cursed artifacts. Just theese cursed artifact drops will have Doomed instead of Curse in the description. That way a player will know it can be imbued and enhance type of arty.

    Dooms drops list can be stretched out even further by some Doom unique deco drops. How about a Pack Horse/Llama deed that is a house container. Has the looks and motion/sound but is really just a fancy container. Another fancy container deed run would be carts and wagons that those wodden steeds could be placed in front of. Not sure if the wooden steed would need a facing art update. Can you say gypsy wagon? One square soulforge deed that's on the fritz. Random times for few minutes starts spewing out sparks doing area damage and working just like the queens forge, but higher.

    Long enough list would make a Silver Steed locked in a crystal stay a rare list. Silver Steed nothing more then a renamed Dread Warhorse withe chance at one the 3 shades of white. Long enough list that even the most dedicated grinders would never get bored with. Just what would rare drop of a Doom Leather Mempo with 150 Luck and 550 cap would go for?

    List would be long enough to safely have an enhancing tool drop.


    Break the grind in the Doom Loop rooms with random boss replacement for the spawn there. Would keep the group from getting to standard doing the laps. Chance for Proxy, Grizzled, Medusa or Xodus taking time for a surprise appearance in a Doom room. 10 Giant Mutant Turkeys would stir things up. Chance loot of a Harvester Blade when they show. Blade is so usefull and rare you never see players selling them. Even could Mirror Doom Dungeon & Loop in fel.

    Fel version of Doom. Loop rooms have odd chance of tram only bosses could spawn instead of regular spawn.

    Dark Father spawn ammount based off number of players there. For every three DF that would spawn have them replaced by the Giant Mutant version. Tougher DF that also has the PS gold splash. So if large enough group to have 5 DF. Be 1 Uber DF and 2 normal DF. DF cannot damage UDF making Provo Bards cry.

    Rez room damage free zone from rez kill Griefing

    I'd rather not have tameables, instead upgrade the artis to include the current faction artis.

    The faction arties are another fine example of what it takes to make players happy. They will end up with naked players again. Just have to wear a sash that has all the mods to cover any template. Rather see few mod arty that can be finnished through crafting and imbuing. I see it better a Plate Gorget with 15DEX open to mods you want. More so then a jackle with added mods over the original. Really where does it end putting gear in the game that is extreem leet must so to avoid tears?

    As far as tames what is rare or can stand out for hunting or a bank sitter? Blaze Cu does unless you have one those black horses that responds to the command "Trick" Not all players have Animal lore let alone know what a great greater dragon is. Take a greater dragon popping out of a crystal that has WW coloration. If it is one drop on a long list of Doom drops, then even with crappy stats one would be impressive. Tamers ask for the Silver steed or return of the Dread Warhorse. Combine the silver looks over the dread stats/abilities coming out of a crystal. Really a better option over another event for a limited time line with griefing taming goings so someone can get rich off latecomers and players with limited time. Something about crystal popping pets that can keep them rare and desired. Crystal popped tames are an instant bonded but can never be traded in their pet form. Be a gamble buying a crystalized pet that comes out of a random quality. With cursed gear reliving the old days before insurance. Crystal popped pets could also have a chance coming out not bonded. Those popped as non bonded never bonds and then can be transfered. Ahh when a pet died and had to go get another days. When I wasn't at the forge fixing weapons, was at WBB selling horses and ostards.

    I'd prefer to see them add new things, rather than recycle older items. But it sounds good. Also, high end tames should be that. Tames. Not crystal drops.

    Still, I like the concept behind this idea.

    Would be cool to re-add in the old animal care coding..it was quite the hoot to be running at or away from something and the horse kicked you off and went wild because you never fed it. It almost always happened at the most inopportune times :) That was a lot of years ago..

    Yeah, that's what I was attempting to say. New tameables are fine, but not as some dumb "drop".

    I support any idea regarding a Doom revamp. I wish they would start a discussion with us about it. I posted a few thoughts last year.

    I also like to grind tames. Have a full set of rare color only, max to near max stats predator hellcats. A dread warhorse and a greater dragon of different title and color not new. If they put a WW colors greater dragon into an area or two as a tame. Everybody and there brother will have one in a week. And grind for ones worthy of big hunting. A crystal drop would keep everyone from having one. But the greater dragons still in destard. Just not in a cool color. Little easier to trade crystals then real pets ---------> see stalls and need to purchase an upgrade.

    Stretch out the Doom drop[ list with rotated out brit turn ins. Dyes and the bless deed.
