Discussion - Berserk - A melee kit idea

    So, I recently reposted my Portal Bow idea. My image of it was for it to be used to attack the ghost, but compiled from active members of the forum, in reality a bow that teleports you around can be very annoying. So here is another.

    Kit name: Berserk. Yes, same concept as the Anni kit, just in a different way.

    Main weapon: Wood sword or stick. The way it works is the first hit on the ghost only does 1/2 heart of damage. Then, the next hit would do 1 heart of damage. The next 1 1/2 of damage, and so on. Obviously, a cap would be necessary. Maybe around 3 or 3 1/2 hearts of damage. To me, this kit evens itself out. In the pre-game, the weapon is ineffective. But if you keep attacking the ghost with it, it can be the most powerful.

    Boosters: 2 sugar and 1 feather

    Other: Maybe a compass to add some variety?

    Armor: Chain legs would suffice.

    I brainstormed the kit with CentillionAir here: http://www.reddit.com/r/MineZ/comments/1m2ej6/992013_state_of_the_shotbow_regular_content/cc58w2j


    As always, feedback, criticism and suggestions are encouraged. We need to figure out a new class so lets get thinking!

    This kit sounds pretty good. It's pretty strong but not op. My only suggestion is it could either have a compass or boosters, not both.

    Edit: Some more armor would be nice too.

    Edit 2: How would you prevent click-spamming to attack? If you need to hit the ghost to boost damage, won't that encourage click-spamming, or reduce the usability of the kit? A person who could infinitely attack a ghost is pretty op.

    Swinging and missing takes down the durability of a weapon. Just like any other sword, click-spamming would have a negative effect.

    That's... pretty cool actually. Nice idea. :D

    But if it requires hitting the ghost to do more damage, won't the sword be pretty useless? Most people can't hit the ghost 8 times, which is the minimum hits required to boost the weapon to do more damage than an iron sword.

    8 times is way off. An iron sword does 2 hearts of damage consistently to the ghost. That would be 3 hits to match the iron sword. From there, the sword would be more powerful.

    If the sword does 1/2 a heart the first time, and 1 heart the next, it would take 8 hits for the damage of one sword swing to be more than that of an iron sword. Correct me if I'm wrong on how the sword works though.

    First hit does 1/2. Next does 1 heart. Next does 1 1/2. Next does 2. At this point, its the same as iron. So 4 hits, not 3 as I previously said.

    If the plugin could be coded so that it has about as much durability as say, support's sword, I think it could work really well. Definitely boosters, speed in particular.

    I agree. Sugar would be crucial so that the user has the opportunity to get a lot of hits on the ghost.

    It'd be kind of like a modified Hunter class really. Would it be a bought class?
    We've had another free class coming for a while now.

    For armor: Gold pants, Nothing else.

    We don't have too much control over that factor. Up to the staff.
