Empires & Dungeons 2: Item system

December 15, 2010

I have decided to change the way items are handled in Empires & Dungeons 2. There have been many questions about how primary and secondary weapons work and whether a level 2 weapon with “greater” weapon damage is more powerful than a level 3 weapon with “lesser” weapon damage. I think all of this has been more confusing than it was worth. So…

  • In E&D 2 you can carry more than one weapon, but the game will automatically use only the most powerful one.
  • Same applies to magic rings = Only the most powerful in your inventory can be worn.
  • The game will display the strength of an item in numbers and not “greater”, “lesser”, etc.
  • You can sell items from your inventory. This way you can influence if you want to have the game use a different weapon / ring from your inventory (just sell the other ones). Or you can make cash faster.
  • My idea of weapon breaking in combat is dropped. It wouldn´t be fun if your new super sword would break, would it? 🙂
