TOPIC: New Slot Thought

New Slot Thought 1 month 2 days ago #1

I was thinking, all the new slots added recently (and really all slots other than Charm & Ioun Stone) are limited initially to one or two tokens. It seems very very likely that another new slot will be added soon, since it seems like one or two are added every year.

For the next new slot, maybe make it like Charm or Ioun Stone and have 3-5 tokens able to be outfitted in the slot. That would open up the window for new slot expansion tokens as well.

Or - maybe make "Pouch" into a slot instead of being slotless, and give it 4 or 5 tokens. People can have a lot of pouches - just look at almost any Rob Liefeld Character design. ;)

That wouldn't impact any existing pouch tokens, since there are only 5, and in a way only 3 since Belt Pouch is a gear token and Greater Alchemist Pouch is an upgrade for Alchemist Pouch. I prefer a new slot to making Pouch a slot, but thought I'd toss the option out there.

It seems that there is 1 slot per year or less. Bead and greaves were in the same year (I believe), what was the slot added before that?

As for new slots, I would hope we take slotless tokens and make them slotted. Pouch seems the easiest, followed by horn. Tome was planned when Gregor's was announced, so I believe that will still be coming.

I'm of two minds about adding another slot which holds large numbers of tokens.

On one hand, we all get to use more tokens and equip our characters with as much awesome gear as possible, which is great.

On the other hand, if new slots are only designed to hold one or two tokens we will see more build diversity as the token pool continues to grow faster than the available slots, which is a good thing.

What I'd really like to see (and don't expect to happen) is a difficulty level where players are only permitted to equip tokens or rarity R or lower, with the exception of Treasure Enhancers. I doubt that it will ever happen as it would work against sales of larger amounts of packs to obtain UR tokens and transmute ingredients, but it would be really interesting to see the diverse builds people come up with, and making it an official format (e.g. with a unique participation token) with a limited number of runs would encourage people to give it a try.
I play Rogue. Occasionally I even play Rogue well.

If we considering moving slotless into slots then with pouches you may want to limit what can fit into a pouch. This includes consumable healing, teeth, skulls, etc. Same with items that can fit into a backpack like horns, tomes, wands, scrolls, etc.

Please, no more slots. More slots = more power creep. This in turn makes tuning The dungeon for existing difficulties more challenging.

Some possible trades:
Add a slot, but reduce the max number of some other slot. Ex: add pouch slot, drop base ioun stones to 3.

Add a slot, but add attribute caps. Ex, add pouch slot, but all attributes cap at 30.

Add a slot, but add modifier caps. Ex: add pouch slot, but cap modifiers like +spell damage at +20.

Please think about how TD will look in 20 years when suggesting these things. We don’t want 20 new slots by 2040.

I'm not necessarily in favor of adding new slots, but always thought if they wanted they could do something with tattoos. You could get really crazy with the artwork. You could definitely expand them to more than one. Of course they would be mystical in nature and bestow a wide number of effects. Just a thought.
