So…currently Veteran items are rather…bland. Sure they look nice, but they are just Orange (exotic) tier items with garunteed max stats for the ‘buffs’ they have and that’s kinda…boring.
So why not a change to that.
Give each Veteran item a special thing it can do that no other weapon in the game can do. Veteran dual axes for slayer? Let him throw one to chain pull an enemy over to him. Veteran two handed sword for Saltzpyre? Let it have a hidden pistol in the hilt that he can shoot similarly to the rapier’s duel pistol. Veteran Halberd on Kruber? Make it a pike with much longer reach. Veteran Conflagration staff on Sienna? Make it so that the burn over time the alt fire causes ‘spreads’ to other enemies if on fire enemies touch them.
These are all rough suggestions, but yeah, it’d be nice if Veteran items in this felt more…Veteran like they did in the first game. Like Drakefire pistols were a Veteran quality item in the last game, in this their just an ‘iron breaker only’ thing, which is fine, but…items in general feel alot more…bland now I guess?
