Just a thought to the gamer designers and CMs,

Since everyone is so passionate here, why not MAKE a official competition for players to submit a set / legendary design with gear graphic, stats and select the top 5 (one for each class) to be implemented in the game based on graphic design , not so over powering stats but still cool and public voting? It sure beats those senseless polls on the website about which is the baddest demon or favorite shrines in terms of community activity.

This is a similar idea to what CAPCOMs monster hunter online did before there they made fan contribution of weapon design a reality. I know there are many devoted fans with talented artistic skills, let them feel appreciated.

I'll just write the game changing effect.
2 Rings intended to work as a set. Gain from well designed quest with certain probability.

Ring 1 (Yet to be named):
->Reduce resource consumption by ~25%. In return for every skills that consume resource is cast, Consume ~1.0% of Max Health. (This effect cannot kill player, though able to reduce health to as far as ~10% of Max Health -> Provide Critical Life Build)
->Current Life on hit and Life steal reduced to ~1/4.

Ring 2 (yet to be named):
For every skills that consume resource is cast, return ~1.0% of Max Health (Same amount as "Ring 1" Max Health consumption).

As a set:
Negate the penalty on "Current Life on hit and Life steal" from Ring 1.


WD Specific Amulet or Voodoo Mask (I prefer mask, so either dog cooldown mask or this)
->Change Zombie Dogs summoned by "Summon Zombie Dog" Skill (Only this skill) to Gargantua.
-> Gargantua will have the same Rune as current "Summon Gargantua Skill" picked Rune (If no Summon Gargantua skill is used, then the Gargantua summoned by Zombie Dog Skill will have no rune effect).
-> Max Gargantua is 3 (from any skill), like Zombie Dog, and can be increased by "Zombie Handler Passive".


->Change "Summon Zombie Dog" Skill to summon 2 dog and 1 Gargantua. Everything else remain as stated above. In case, Bliz prefer for player to still have the dog.

Edit add:
Some details

Here's an idea....Valor items which would work just like Nephalem Valor, where for example the damage they do grows as they are used. Just a thought.

I currently play a barb, but always enjoyed playing a summon necro in D2 as a non serious/fun class.
In an effort to help out summon WD's I had some ideas for legendary effects that could help out this underpowered build.

I like the idea of having a helm that boosts zombie dogs dmg like you originally talked about.

Or how about an effect that doubles the amount of dogs you can have summoned, but reduces the damage they deal with sacrifice by 40% or something?

Or an effect that removes the 60sec spawn timer on fetish sycophants, but caps the spawns at 6?

Just a couple ideas.

Bring back the "Crushing Blow" affix!

Crushing Blow is a Diablo II combat mechanic that appears as a Chance on Hit mod on several Unique, Set or Rune Word items. The game will roll for the chance for the mechanic to occur on every eligible melee or ranged attack. If it is chosen to happen, the attack's target has it's heath reduced by a measured percentage. This health reduction occurs before the damage of the swing is dealt.

Bring back "Bonesnap" as a legendary item!

Bonesnap is a unique mace. Besides its bonuses to Cold Resist and Fire Resist, Bonesnap also has a high chance of Crushing Blow and a large boost to damage.

While this isn't a post in regards to a new legendary, it has to do with the upcoming change that allows all legendaries to drop eventually.

Why not allow more of the earlier armor and weapons to drop in inferno? You know, the ones that you equip for a few levels and never see again. Give them the same chance to roll ilvl 63 stats and it would add more variety to end game gear.

It'd be great to run through some e's with a pair of the 1h scythes and elephant skull shoulders again!

The Scavenger's Bite
1 handed Dagger
700-1,030 DPS
???-??? Poison Damage
+20-40% Magic Find
+25-45% Gold Find
+12% Movement Speed
+10-15 yard Pickup Radius
Allows you to automatically pickup gems, tomes, plans, demonic essences and potions.
+1 Random Magic Property (Intel, Strength, Dexterity OR socket)

This terrible weapon was crafted from the fang of the legendary hyena known as Kuri. It is a boon to those who wish to scour the Earth for all the treasures that their greedy hearts desire.

I pulled the name of a mythical Hyena spirit from here:
I chose poison damage because Kuri is supposed to cause paralysis.

If I had this weapon I would not need my sun keeper or my Inna pants that have pickup radius on them. If it is possible, it would be super-duper awesome to be able to automatically pickup all the items listed above.

my ideas for affixes to legendary items that would be fun.

Health globes also recover-Fury, Spirit, Arcane, Discipline, hatred, Mana. and a good pick up radius. As a WD that loves running with Thing from the Deep I would like to see something give other classes this style of play. It's super fun.

Dodge chance now applies to pools of acid, desecration and all other attacks that don't normally allow for a character to dodge.

Remove cool down on teleport

Remove cost to vault

remove cost to Dashing Strike

remove cool down to Furious Charge

remove cool down on spirit walk

allow players to move through walls, enemies, and ignore crowd control. giving other builds WoTB type mobility.

any thing that makes new player builds possible like "Thing of the Deep", and the "The Three Hundredth Spear"

while i really like quite a few of the items, you guys sometimes have to offer, you should make sure to keep those suggestions within a reasonable scope. a shield providing 200cd 15 as, as well as cc, is certainly a bit far fetched.

what you have to keep in mind is, that we are not looking for items that roflstomp everything currently existing, but to create useful alternatives.

of course it would be up to the devs, to up-/downscale accordingly, but i'd find it even better, if a few of you tried to work with a little more reason.
