Mountaineering Gear

Recommended Posts

Pitons, hooks, boots, ropes... You still have to climb but using a "climbing rope" that represents a mountaineering kit, you will fatigue slower and regen stamina at a greatly reduced rate while standing still. Skills on climbing. Fatigue from the action is based on climbing + QL of the climbing rope. Add in a harness that you wear in your belt slot to provide a small measure of safety by protecting you from falls.


 


But remember, it's slow going up but coming down can be deadly fast.


 


EDIT: Additional thoughts about the belt. Climbing skill + QL of the "harness" provides a better safety net to break your falls. My idea still includes the chance to become one with the force of gravity and come face to face with the sharp rocks below but with a chance for a safety harness to catch you and spare you.

Great idea Lord Audrel...


 


+1 to this one and most of the stuff to make this work is already in-game....Belts (to make a type of harness)...hooks...ropes.


 


It's ALL GOOD and ready to go BABY ;)

i really like this idea and would like to see it ingame, been climbing a mountain with my friend recently and not being able to hand them a rope is sad, you can just watch your friend fall there is no other way

Be a nice unlock after a certain minimum climbing skill.

Eh I'll wait and see how such gets implemented (if :P ) before I worry over how it impacts pvp.


 


EDIT: Besides such would be equally available to all factions. Although MR do tend to spend alot of time around mountains and vast underground complexes, so there's a few climbers.

OOOO Add fire traps to light it once triggered.

Not to mention those giant chained pendulum-scythes used on Games of Thrones during the Wall battle scenes.


 


Towards the end, and gets a little gory...
