    Hey guys, this is an idea I had a while back, that I never really got a chance to develop/expand on. It focuses on a use for XP!
    I thought I'd ask for thoughts from you guys :p


    What are Relics?

    Relics would be a new item introduced in washups primarily, and quite possibly some other loot tables. These items would have a lore something like ‘this ancient relic was lost long ago in the battle of the races, and seems devoid of all the power it once contained”, with another line informing the player they must collect XP with this in their hotbar to charge it.


    If we wished, we could create different tiers (or types, as tiers suggest one being better than the other) of relics, possibly one based around each race (explaining more on the reasoning for this later).


    Once the player obtained one of these items, they would be required to charge it by grinding xp.
    Once they obtained all the xp required, their item would be considered charged, and they would then be able to right click it to receive a reward from that respective tier. Obviously while planning these rewards, depending the rarity of the item in general they could range from rune pouches, to slot crystals, etc.


    The one thing I would suggest, as the rarest reward from this item is different weapons, tired towards each race. [If we did end up removing pvp for races, this could be a new system preventing them from becoming useless/redundant] These items could possibly have a method of charging, [Kills, intractable, etc] and once charged grant the player a buff while holding that item, until the charge ran out.

    Apologies for the little formatting throughout these, it's effectively copy/pasted from when I wrote the concept document.
    (also shout out to @FluffyBear for helping to refine the idea]

    +1, this would add some cool uses for XP and make the server more enjoyable.

    When I was reading this I thought it was going to have some sort of pvp effect when released. Potentially that might work better? Otherwise it is just a expensive scroll with no clues and another reward loot table. I like the fact this builds on the race system but I wouldn’t want it to replace anything.

    It's effectively a loot crate that you have to "charge" to be able to unlock- think of it as buffed mythic crates.
    Possibly one type for each race, and obviously if we did include the special weapons we could definitely have their effects charged through pvp.

    Yes so when we use xp as the commodity to buy scrolls this is essentially a scroll with better rewards that you don’t have to do clues for. That’s what I was trying to say. Yes it will have unique rewards but to me when we have scrolls using xp this idea doesn’t quite make sense to me.

    I made a thread about a concept similar called luck where you could essentially buff your crates and keys. Anyway +1

    As Ben said, I wouldn't want this to replace anything (because we need more content, and not only different content). I really like the idea of implementing this into races so races are a lot more unique than what it currently is. Another thing I like is that it will make PvP a LOT more interesting as we can use different strategies depending on what kind of relic we're using etc.
    @Jobmaximous Let's release it. xD

    It's an idea from Job so -1.











    (Jokes, jokes people.)
    Seems interesting, but I think it'd get really repetitive after a while, so I'm kinda 50/50 on it. Plus would amount of exp to get rewards go up a bit each time you redeem a reward?
