maybe nerf rl sexiness of looming player?  i.e. if you loom item you get better armor,  but loose all your hair irl so you wont get laid unless you pay for it,  making you suffer financially for looming items which might prevent people from looming and make them just retire  w/o looming cause they think theyll be young again and get their hair back but its only in game not rl so they wont.
Yes, I know from whence I came! Discontented as a flame, Upon myself I live and glow. All I grasp like lightning flashes, All I leave behind is ashes
Flame I am - that much I know!

Your comments about why looms are an issue aren't clear, to make your point more visible you need to elaborate more. All I got from your thread was "looms are OP" and "here's how we can nerf them".

Basic guide on how to structure a thread asking for a nerf:
What you want nerfed?
Why do you want it nerfed?
How does this benefit the community?
Suggestions for ideas on how to nerf?


I play a lot without looms on some of my characters as I do build tests all the time so I've never got one item that I keep looms on and it'd be too expensive to reforge them every time, I've never personally found a massive difference between having a fully loomed character and not having one, at least not one that I specifically notice, other players may feel differently though.

He literally covered all that shit in his OP post, not sure what your deal is there, bucko.
Maybe he did, but it's not legible at all, It's cluttered and impossible to make anything out of, at least for me. Maybe one of the other balancing team can sift through it and make something out of it but I certainly can't.

"having to get 5/6 more weight just to get as heavy armored as some old player that clearly hasn't fucked up everything like i did feels like a real handicap."
What does this mean? I don't understand. If you're able to understand the thread in its entirety could you explain to me? I'm not trying to be an ass here lol I genuinely don't know what Retsam is trying to say.

"now this can be easily countered by saying "omelette du fromage body armor" "
I don't understand this either, could you also translate that for me?



Either way, the general point seems to be that looms are too strong and should be nerfed, I understand that much and I disagree, looms are pretty difficult to get unless you're grinding pretty hard, it took me ages to get to 32 even jumping into a lot of strat battles that got me tons of XP, and that's only 3 looms. Looms are fairly difficult to obtain and are thus able to provide you with a relatively good bonus to the stats on the weapon/armour etc etc.

Nerfing looms to a point where they're barely effective/not even worth having isn't a good idea because it removes the point to a big part of C-RPG which is grinding for XP so that you can GET said looms. That being said as well, as I stated in my previous post I've played builds in which I use no looms for a long time and I don't struggle without them personally. 99% of C-RPG's community are skilled players and don't need to rely on looms to carry them in the first place.

I dont use any looms on my Wight alt and my 2h alt Judeau I only have my main weapon loom no armor etc.and I dont feel like I do any worse on them than I do on Asheram & Skillless who both have everything loomed but helms. The only thing that makes them seem worse to me is that I only build for lvl 30 on them and then retire @ 31 so they have less skill/att points to use.

This whole forum is one giant necro.
Maybe you are not bad, but you are a boring person. Well, that's the end of the matter.
