Wrestling weapons so we can have slayers? Books?

    Is there any way we can get some hand to hand items added to game for wrestlers? Maybe so we can have some weapon-like properties?

    Or just have slayer spellbooks work with wrestling?

    I didnt put much thought into this, just figured I would share. Ideas?

    Huh? So you can do 8 damage instead of 4?? Without anat, tactics, chiv or bush what honestly is the point?

    We have those nifty claw gloves from the SE publish. Maybe some weapon slot items like that with only a wrestler use. Archer with no skill can hold a sword and is no use once starts swinging it without sword skill. Some ninja palm claws or a pair of brass knuckles or spiked over gloves or wrist hooks. Would have to keep anything for wrestle skill two handed.

    Far fetched be new animation of special moves like the crazy martial arts movies. Would be series of books scribe would make to be held. always found that jumping at someone corkscrew double fist face smash move. Have to stay away from something like the full nelson done by a human to an ancient wyrm. Run around the slime mini champ doing the Bruce Lee putting out a cigerette foot stomp grind.

    Disarm should be for wrestlers only, that would make it (wrestling) much more attractive and stop all the nub dexers that just run round disarm spamming.

    I also like the idea of wrestling 'weapons' like knuckle dusters and the like, maybe they would have no damage increase or anything like that but simply allow a wrestler to use bleed attack or something like that. Maybe a few different artifact 'gloves' could be put in that would convert a wrestler's specials to different ones when they are worn.

    I think it would be a better idea to add a new fighting skill that allows unarmed combat, like kicks and punches.

    I too think wrestling could use some love.
    Currently it does neglected dmg and have quite unattractive specials. Wrestling is also very slow and cannot be improved by ssi on weapons.

    It could be low damaging (yet not neglected) but with more pros. Useful and possibly new specials other than para and disarm.

    Good ideas and make sense but will DEVs do something? Quite unlikely.

    Hm, Wrestling can have slayers if Necro Spells and Weaving spells (not WoD) can get slayers :)

    Agreed!
    Seriously, how was this not thought of when SE was released?

    Nah. I think if you want to do direct damage to something, then be a warrior. If you want to cast spells, then you have slayer spellbooks. Wrestling is really more of a defensive skill anyway. But then again, Im biased against mages. So take it with a grain of salt.

    I think wrestling totems would be cool. But if you use a weapon then you are not actually wrestling anymore?

    I want a balanced fist pack with 30 ssi, 50 hit fireball, and 50 hit lower attack.

    This came up on the ideas den long ago and there were ideas like bronze knuckles and things like that. Too bad stratics never replaced the ideas den.

    i thought things like spiked firsts or brass knuckles...etc would have been nice to go into the weapon slot for wrestlers
