Is it possible to do an npc interaction that would remove the current property on a weapon and replace it with some of the old abilities?
The reason I ask is because some of the weapons appear watered down in the latest update for rares.
One good example is Renari's Equalizer. You removed the AR/BS/CB properties for slash rending. It is those properties that would enable the higher levels to want to wield this weapon, not slash rending. Slash rending would enable a low level, not a high level. I dont think the damage rating really helps either since not only does it require enormous amounts of xp to level, but a 10% max isnt much to write home about.
Another good example is the Pwyll Sword. It now has the Olthoi slayer and pierce rend, but once had BS/CB and slash rend. I know you upgraded the damage, but the weapon should be enabled for high levels with the slash rend and old abilities too. Same for the damage rating with this one.
Last example is skull puncher. You removed the CB property, lowered the damage it seems, and gave it skeleton slayer. Who would use pierce on skeletons? lol. I dont think the damage rating would help here either.
The whole point of the rare weapons were to wield items of true power. Many of us will never be able to wield one unless loaned , bought, stolen, or given, including myself. I would think something that allows some of the older stats to appear would enable uses at the high levels.
