Request your Dread Dungeon Weapons/Pets/Accessories here!

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow defenders! I hope you're enjoying those Embermount-themed items, because many of them were conceptualized by you!

We're now in the beginning stages of CDT Update 3, which includes the Dread Dungeon. Just like Embermount, this is going to come with its own exclusive rewards, and we want your input as to what we include!

Descriptions of how you'd like a new weapon to work, requests for retexturing an existing item to be made into a reward item, concept art for weapons/pets/accessories are all fair game here. All I ask is that we stick to a dungeon-esque theme. Let your creative juices flow, and share what items you'd like to see in our next update!

Hello! Please fix the Ember Flame weapon!

Every time I look in my tavern I see green everywhere! (indicating it's a better weapon) when it turns out it does a tenth of the damage!

this is because the 'betterness' of a weapon doesn't look at dps.

Please help! I don't want to go through all my weapons in the hope of finding a better one!

For a pet/s why not have some specialised pets for each hero? for example, have a baby ogre that buffs damage of all summoner minions in your vicinity? this could be a reward for beating it as the summoner?

I just thought this might be a cool idea since it could be like an 'upgrade' of the The Summit pets. I would love to see a new 'Best pet 2016' arrive on scene! especially since I really hate farming those giraffes! argh!

To stick to the dungeon theme, maybe each pet reward could be in chains like the summoner hero is?

OOOO! Just got a great idea! how about you can have a second pet if you use a Chain (which could be a reward, maybe for completing survival). The chain could reduce player speed a lot but can be reduced as an upgrade. That could add an interesting new way of thinking when it comes to what pets to use.

There could be combinations of two pets that create a bonus buff (kinda like the buff for having all of one type of armour), i.e. having two giraffes on treadmills gives a hero speed bonus (Ya' know... because they run on treadmills... just forget about it ;)   )

Ok so here we go with the first thing i was chatting with acen and a couple of fellows from the DDRnG group a while ago and we were talking about pets that can be added. So i had the idea to make a ghost pet using the fairy as mArm said you could make a floating ghost with little whips of light instead of wings. This ghost would have a sea horse type ability that cold possibly drain life when the projectiles hit like the ghost is siphoning the life of the enemy. it would also have a high chance to spawn cursed since it is a ghost this adds some flavor and it could be a survival pet like the sea horse. Main goal of the pet would be DPS.

You could take the sea horse projectiles and change them to be a eerie white looking projectile it would have 3 additional projectiles for a total of 4 projectiles or what ever makes it a decent dps pet. 

And other than that pet i would love a acc set that makes your hero look semi transparent or ghost like to match the pet. I sorta don't mind weapons and can't come p with nay of them. hope you liked my ghost pet idea.

As i stated in the update 3 discussion thread i would love to see a new hammer or axe addded into the game, and could be used as a high end hawk weapon for barbarians. It would have to swing very slow, slower than steam saws and have high hawk scaling.  Possibly make it death themed, with dark purple menacing spikes along its handle, or it could have new particle affects.


Hope you liked my idea :)

Not a bad idea - I was using a couple trans hammers before I got my steam saws. I totally wouldn't mind making hammers relevant again.

I have a idea for a apprentice item in the next patch i would love to see the animations from the hydro-staff be used in a way they are relevant it has a super cool full charge effect and a amazing alternate attack animation. maybe you can make them in a spectral explosion of ghostly fire. I was just doing a run and saw the animation and was sorta amazed by how cool the effect was on a semi useless item.

Just for the sake of it:
EV Guardian and EV Animus.
Barb Guardian and Barb Animus.
Jester Guardian and Jester Animus.
Summoner Guardian and Summoner Animus.

For the Guardians, the buffs you guys can figure out! (Something similar to their heroes should be logical)
For the Animus, their attacks should be similar to the characters:
EV Animus -- Flamethrower(like Pyro), deals attack gives HP.
Barb Animus -- Melee Pet with Barb like animation, huge knockback.
Jester Animus -- Ranged Damage but increased spread.
Summoner Animus -- Kind of like Djinnlet, deals attack gives mana.

Might sound too much work, but the other heroes definitely need their own pets!

The Jester Guardian could give random boosts :)  I can't really think of anything that makes sense for the others.

By the way, you can use the existing animi on the DLC classes.  I use a huntress animus on my jester for greater turkey hunt.

Yeah I like the idea of a Jester Guardian giving random buffs every 30 seconds(or 1 minute, depending on how OP it can get) Also maybe roll debuffs once in a while. People would rage a lot though!


Yeah I can't think of abilities/functionality for the other Guardians myself.
Probably have them similar to the current ones, just re-skins. EV Guardian could act like a Monk + Huntress Guardian. Summoner Guardian can act like Apprentice Guardian and Barb can act like Squire Guardian.

Hey guys, we're starting to get close to the point where I'm going to be making these. If you have any concept art or ideas for what you want to see, now would be the time to post!
