    So who else thought that Shadowflame could have been more than just 3 weapons?
    I diiiiiiiiiiiid. And do.
    Torches, a Summon weapon from the Goblin Summoner, maybe a Flask of Shadowflame...
    Stuff like that.
    Down below, I've sprited all my ideas. It's not that much, compared to any of my other suggestions, but it's something.

    [​IMG]

    Guess I'll leave all the new items here.

    New Goblin Summoner Drops [​IMG]
    The Goblin Summoner's drops are now 8.33%/16.67% each, instead of 16.70%/33.33%. I'm adding three new drops, so...

    Shadowflame
    [​IMG]

    8.33%/16.67% chance of being dropped by the Goblin Summoner, in stacks of 6 - 16/12 - 32.

    Shadowflame Apparition Staff

    8.33%/
    16.67% chance of being dropped by the Goblin Summoner.
    Summons a Shadowflame Apparition that constantly flies around the player.
    When it sees an enemy, it'll ram into it, dealing damage and inflicting Shadowflame for 5 - 8 seconds. The minions attack like the Goblin Summoner's Shadowflame Apparations.

    Maybe it's that I don't fully understand what shadowflame does (since the only item I have for it is a bow and I'm saving my arrows for a endless quiver) but aside from the papyrus cobra I'm having a hard time getting hyped for these I mean they look cool and all

    Shadowflame is basically a stronger Damage over Time debuff than Cursed Inferno (15 DPS compared to 6 DPS for Cursed Inferno), but is only utilized by three weapons.
    Shadowflame felt like it should've been a little more, though, like how Cursed Flames and Ichor have Flasks and ammunition and a Campfire.
    It's not supposed to be anything major; I just wanted to flesh it out a little more.

    Dark Spin should have less damage; it's stronger than the Amorak and the Hel-Fire and it could be as strong as Yelets (post Mech boss yoyo) if with the right modifiers.

    Right. Lowered to 42.

    Pretty cool! I don't really like it if the goblin summoners drop torches, instead it should drop Shadowflame Fragments. And I would love it if you can add a Living Shadowflame Blocks too!

    Yeah, I had been wanting to do that, but I wasn't sure what I'd call it. I'm an idiot I guess.
    Gimme a bit and I'll change that.
    [7/23/2017] Changed.

    I'm absolutely in love with this topic. So glad I found, I'm not the only one who wants more Shadowflame items. Shadowflame is awesome, it shouldn't be restricted from the players into only 3 items.

    I really, really like your ideas!!! I am in the process of making a mod, and I also added a shadowflame material, so... Could I please use your sprites and ideas and turn them into real items?
     
  12. I was thinking there might be shadowflame armour. It would have a 5% chance to inflict any Melee (Not ranged, magic or summoning) attacker with Shadowflame.

    If I feel weirdly motivated one day, maybe, but don't count on it.
