Just a thought

    I was reading about wrestling being underpowered and so on. I was thinking about the reasons and all that. What I have come up with is this.

    Bare handed combat should be limited to minor damage. However we should have wrestling weapons in the form that takes a glove slot. No you should not have to sacrifice a piece of armor though. Why not have a pair of gloves that not only act as a weapon but also as a piece of armor. Requirements to use them would be wrestling and any mods that boost weapon type attributes would only take effect if you had wrestling at a certain amount. Also make them impossible to use as a mage so that a wrestle mage cannot equip them and beat you to a pulp while casting on you.

    Wrestling should require tactics to use a special and the reason is because like any other method of physical combat tactics is required to deal optimal damage. You can toss your arms around like wet noodles and barely scratch someone or you can box someones jaws off in which case you used tactics to throw a calculated punch at someone dealing far more pain than flailing around like a ****** [​IMG]

    The reasons we see problems with wrestling is because:

    A. You have less equipment to boost your power.
    B. You need the same amount of skills that any other fighter needs (tactics)

    We need to have a tactics requirement for specials or we would hear the boo hoo of "nerf wrestle mages they are to powerful"

    But I want to hear what everyone else thinks about the above mentioned.

    I would also like to hear some opinions on what you think of a wrestling buff in the game in general. Would you like to see wrestling as a viable skill that could be used? I know I would and I think they should add that to the list of cool things in the next expansion.

    Wrestling is fine as it is. If those sallies can't toggle their specs after targetting it's their own fault.

    They do have gloves with wep modifiers already. Stormgrip and gloves of the pugliest (spelling?).

    Stop nerfing things and let pvp happen.
