Credit given where Credit is due:

 

Hegra34 Came up wit the name

 

Hawkxs did all the concept art, and really brought this project to life, I'm very grateful to him for all teh work he did for me. (for free I might add!) If u see him, toss him a cookie :thumbsup:

 

 

 

Warning: This thread will be a little long.

 

Hey there! I have an idea for a new high lvl slay monster...

 

The Vertigus!

 

 

 

[hide=Description]A Monster that definitely isn't of this world, or possibly of this universe. It's a ly hunter, and you wouldn't want to meet one in a dark alley. It's eyes make you wonder if its even totally organic.

 

 

 

The Vertigus has a long, slender, tall neck, with 4 red eyes (one in each direction) mounted on a black ring, that can rotate and move up and down its neck. Also, each eye can move to any point on the ring.

 

 

 

It has 2 tentacle like arms, with 2 large [bleep]es on the ends, about 3 feet long. They are about 6 inches wide at the base, slimming down to a very fine point at the end.

 

Its body is like a snake's, with a [bleep]e at its tail, and six legs.

 

It's skin can camouflage like a chameleon. If its not using this ability, its skin is a dark sickly green.

 

 

 

Variations: Multiple smaller heads, some hover/spin.

 

 

 

Examine: What is this... Thing? Is this even from our dimension?[/hide]

 

[hide=Pic of monster]Concept_Art___finished_by_hawkxs.jpg[/hide]

 

[hide=Combat Statistics/Attributes]Slayer Level Required: 88

 

Combat level: 142

 

Main Combat Style: Stab Melee

 

Special effect: Can Hit for up to 75, can also occasionally hit thu protect from melee, if your constantly using it.

 

Max Hit: 21 (with correct item)

 

Range: (in tiles) 1-3.

 

Defense: Totally Immune to stabbing attacks, and crush attacks are slightly more accuare, but slash works fine too. Range Resistant.

 

Location: Slayer Tower Roof.

 

 

 

Requires a Deflection Plate body to Kill it effectively. This armor prevents it from skewering you like a human shish-kabob, lowering its max hit from 75 to 21.

 

It's available from any slayer master for 100k.[/hide]

 

 

 

[hide=Drop List]Rune items:

 

Dagger

 

Short Sword

 

Spear

 

Halberd

 

 

 

Dragon:

 

Longsword (uncommon)

 

Halberd (rare)

 

 

 

Runes/arrows:

 

Fire (15-35-75)

 

Pure Essence (noted) (15, 100(rare))

 

Rune Arrows, 10

 

Dragon Arrow, 2 (rare)

 

Dragon Dart, 5 (rare)

 

 

 

Drops all herbs, with a tendency toward rannar. Not a frequent dropper however.

 

Gems, Half keys, Dragon left half.

 

Level 3 Clue Scrolls

 

Drops Mostly Crimson Charms.

 

 

 

Special

 

Vertigus' Arm

 

Ring of Eyes

 

Vertigus head, for mounting in your house.[/hide]

 

 

 

II: New items

 

 

 

[hide=Deflection Platebody]Requirements: 45 Defence, Dragon Slayer quest done.

 

Stats:

 

Offensive:

 

 

 

+ 5 Stab + 0 slash + 0 crush- 30 magic - 10 range

 

 

 

Defensive

 

+ 95 stab + 85 slash + 60 crush - 6 magic+ 85 range + 40 summoning.

 

 

 

As you can see, its based off the rune platebody. It looks different however. its between iron and steel in color, and has a large, angled piece of metal on the front that causes stabbing attacks to be deflected to the side, hence its name.

 

 

 

For Clarity's sake:

 

 

 

The Vertigus requires a Deflection Platebody to Kill it effectively. This armor prevents it from skewering you like a human shish-kabob, lowering its max hit from 75 to 21.

 

It's available from any slayer master for 100k.[/hide]

 

 

 

New Weapons: This is what we came here for! The monster's arm can be separated from its body... what good does this do us, you ask? well, if you have 70 crafting, you can chisel its arm [bleep]e down to something usable as a weapon. Take it to a grindstone to grind down the point to have it sharpened. You now have a Vertigus Piercer!

 

 

 

The arm is untradable, but the finished weapon is tradable.

 

 

 

Appearance: A slimmed down version of the creature's [bleep]e. about 2 feet long, and 7-8 inches wide, with striations like a drill would have. It would match the [bleep]es on barrows and dragon armor well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[hide=Stats/Requirements]Needs 80 attack, and level 50 slayer.

 

 

 

Stab Attack: +95

 

Stab Defense: +10

 

Crush Defense: -15

 

Strength bonus: +75

 

 

 

One Handed.

 

Attacks:

 

Peirce: (Stab) Accurate style.

 

Thrust: (Stab) Aggressive style.

 

Prod: (Stab) Controlled style.

 

Pin Down: (Stab) Defensive style.

 

 

 

Special Attack: Skewer.

 

Bar Usage: 100%.

 

Effect: This attack will not miss, and will do atleast 10 damage.

 

 

 

Speed: Longsword (5 on the speed bar gauge.)

 

As you can see, this is an accurate stabbing weapon, but it sacrifices strength for it. However, this is NOT the only form of the weapon...[/hide]

 

 

III: The Lance

 

 

 

Fletch a pole out of 2 magic or yew logs. get some sinew, and lash the Piercer to the pole with it. You now have yourself a nice Vertigus Lance!

 

 

 

Requirements are same as above.

 

 

 

 

 

[hide=Combat stats]Stab Attack: +123

 

Crush Attack: +70

 

Stab Defense: +10

 

Slash Defense: +5

 

Crush Defense: -15

 

Strength bonus: +85

 

 

 

2 Handed.

 

Speed: Halberd (3 Bars)

 

 

 

Peirce: (Stab) Accurate style.

 

Thrust: (Stab) Aggressive style.

 

Smash: (Crush) Aggressive style.

 

Pin Down: (Stab) Defensive style.

 

 

 

Word of warning: The crush attack is for emergencies only. Over use may result in the pole breaking in combat, leaving you with the regular piercer.[/hide]

 

 

 

Abilities: Like the Halberd, This weapon is capable of hitting over a distance, and has an even longer reach, 3 spaces! However, UNLIKE the halberd, It can't hit over all obstacles. there are some things that will get in its way. Basically, if your in a spot where the accumulator can collect your arrows, you could hit it with the lance.

 

 

 

Special attack: Run Through (am I spelling this right?)

 

Bar Usage: 100%

 

Effect: If The enemy is 2 squares long/deep, damage is boosted 10%, and accuracy is boosted 30%.

 

 

 

If The enemy is 3 squares long/deep, damage is boosted 20%, and accuracy is boosted 50%.

 

 

 

If you get a running start at your opponent add 10% Damage bonus, and 20% Accuracy bonus.

 

 

 

If the opponent is not deep enough, The Piercers special is used.

 

 

 

Bonus: You can attach a banner to your lance, if you have a banner stand at your house. banner versions are untradable.

 

 

 

IV: Ring of Eyes

 

 

 

[hide=Ring of Eyes]Like the name suggests, the Ring of Eyes is a headband with 4 eyes on it. Its worn over your own eyes. Aside from looking cool, it gives some bonuses to accuracy...

 

 

 

Stab +7

 

Slash +5

 

Crush +3

 

Magic +4

 

Range +4

 

 

 

No defensive bonuses.

 

 

 

Operating it while worn will cause the eyes to scan 180 degrees to the right, then scan back to their start positions.

 

 

 

Examine: "Now you really DO have eyes in the back of your head!"

 

Alternate:"Eye see eeeeevvvvveeeererrryyyy thiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnggg......"[/hide]

Where's it located? What slayer level is required to kill it?

 

Other than that, why's it resistant to range? Things like that annoy me, there's nothing that's weak to range in this game. :wall:

 

Also, take out the attack bonus on the plate. Simply because no other armor has that.

My skin is finally getting soft
I'll scrub until the damn thing comes off

I very rarely post in the suggestions forum, and even more rarely is it a positive post, but I actually like this idea. Could put the monster in the area around the Fishing platform, something like paddling out in one of the boats and a fight similar to that of the 3-tentacle/head monster from temple trekking, or on the other hand could put it in one of the underwater areas of the game.

 

 

 

Only criticism is that the name vertigus sounds like vertigo, and the creature looks more like a sea monster than a flying monster.

You make it sound like running through a few level 87 monsters is hard which it really shouldn't be at your level.

Its supposed to be on the roof of the slayer tower, and requires 88 slayer... i thought i put that in there? It must have gotten lost while i was transferring the post from RSOF... I'll be sure to add that info. It's range resistant because ranging isnt much different than stabbing. also, i wanted to make sure its hard to safespot his beast. and y take out the attack bonus? its only +5 stab attack, nothing dramatic.

coolness, i was gonna ask you to concept it anyway O_O If you can have a man wearing the armor, holding the piercer in one hand, and the lance upright in the other, tha'd be great. (banner on the lance is optional.)

There is some possibility to this, but overall I HATE the idea of having to use crafting to make the weapon and such. Just have it drop the weapon as is. No need to overcomplicate things.

 

 

 

Post its secondary drops too, so we know how good it will be to kill just for loot.

Everything looks good except the spec. The aquanite spec can hit around 20, and something 30 levels high can hit 75? That would be murder.

 

That's only if your not wearing the right armor. its the same as any other slayer monster that pwns you because you didnt bring the right item.

 

 

 

The halberd version kind of sucks. For a speed-three weapon, 79 strength will ensure that it is never used. :?

 

Oh Contraire! It would be the PERFECT weapon for the corp beast, where accuracy counts more than strength. and the fact that it can hit 3 spaces instead of 2 can open up some possibilities, I'm sure.

 

Also, its a bit stronger than the current corp beast weapon, the zamorakian spear.

 

 

 

However, it does need a str boost so its not out done by the piercer when used with rune defender/DFS... :?

I thought having to make a weapon for a change would be nice, and the level requirements arent that high, and are assistable.

 

 

 

For secondary loot i was thinking something like this:

 

 

 

[hide=]Rune items:

 

Dagger

 

Short Sword

 

Spear

 

Halberd

 

 

 

Dragon:

 

Longsword (uncommon)

 

Halberd (rare)

 

 

 

Runes/arrows:

 

Fire (15-35-75)

 

Pure Essence (noted) (15, 100(rare))

 

Rune Arrows, 10

 

Dragon Arrow, 2 (rare)

 

Dragon Dart, 5 (rare)

 

 

 

Drops all herbs, with a tendency toward rannar. Not a frequent dropper however.

 

Gems, Half keys, Dragon left half.

 

Level 3 Clue Scrolls

 

Drops Mostly Crimson Charms.

 

Vertigus head, for mounting in your house.[/hide]

 

Also, In realization what the peircer's stats would be with rune defender, iv'e buffed the lance. Let me know if its too strong now.

I like the secondary drops, and I think the newly updated stats of the weapons are a lot better now. With halberd speed you want a weapon with decent power. I'm going say say good job on this. I'd love to see it as the level 88 Slayer Monster. :)

I like the concept, and I definitely like the concept of another slayer monster.

 

 

 

However, is there a chance you could suggest that Smithing be used somewhere in the piercer and/or lance? Because Smithing is truly pathetic right now.

 

 

 

Maybe having to smith a handle for the piercer, and smith the tying cables for the lance. Then making the chiseled-and-grinded versions tradable, along with bronze hilt, bronze thread/cable, iron hilt, iron thread/cable, etc. and make it so a certain Crafting/Smithing/what have you level is required to attach the hilt to the piercer. The hilted piercers would be tradable as well, with lower level reqs (and lower stats of course) for the ones with lower level hilts. Also make it drop a special piece of "barrow metal" that can only be smithed for the piercer/lance, but since it's special, it can be smithed at, oh, say, lvl 88 or so. And if the weapon changed color slightly along with the hilt, that would be cool as well.

 

 

 

My suggestion within a suggestion. I might just make a post with stats and lvl reqs for this stuff now, complete with concept art... curse you and making me desire to contribute! :evil: :lol:
