Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

Steel Blade. An ordinary sword, plain and practical, but well made. Balance is perfect, and blade extremely sharp. Hand and a half type, for multiple fighting styles
No history, no magic, no power beyond the weilder. And the weilder is everything.
Link must become a masterswordsman to save Hyrule. His sword does not besome stronger, only his skills improve.
TP had the idea of a normal farmboy being the hero, without any magic or knowledge inherent in himself. What if this was taken further? A boy who could not fight, was pretty weak but had a great determination to become a blade master, to save his land?

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

if they made the chain mace more accessible, instead of a gigantic thing you only use to break ice. as in a little ball, shorter chain, not crazy heavy

Good idea, I have always hated oversized weapons.

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

I would like Link to have a katana-type sword. I like the katana a hell of alot more than those European swords, tbh. And it could make the game funner with a brand new sword style to operate with. I'm sure a lot of people hate the idea, but one can hope.

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

^ Zelda seems more rooted in anceint European culture than Japanese. The only time I've seen a "katana-like weapon" in Zelda was in Wind Waker when Ganondorf has those two sweet blades and they seem like Gerudo Weapons.

-Lamp oil = fire bomb, lights enemies/objects on fire.
-Water = can be used to extinguish flames/fire based enemies, maybe in some other puzzles too (creating patches of ice in an ice cavern etc).
-Some sort of smoke pulver = smoke bombs, you can cover your escape/dazzle enemies.
-Poison = well, you can poison enemies with it.
-Healing potion = you can uh . . . heal enemies with it? Hmmm.
-Nails, glass, other sharp objects = fragmentation grenade.
-And many more!

(Note: maybe it's for the best that you can't stuff faeries or other living beings inside these bombs; that would be cool but cruel!)
I love this so much, great idea.

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

I heard that they are talking about a new steampunk zelda on wii so any items that would fit in that catagory are what we should be talking about, like the musket or an electric crossbow or somthing

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

I'd like to have ski's. They would be an item just like steel boots, and like them, they would also slow you down. But only on other terrain than snow.
On snow you could ski with them (duhh), and go a lot faster, especially downhill. It would just be so much fun to do that on a wide open snow-filled valley. And the Wii's motion sensor could really spice things up, they could be fully motion-controlled.

Also, maybe they could be used in other places too? Combined with a glider-like item you could use wind to propel you over sand and water.

Sounds like fun!

Maybe Link could ride some sort of flying thing in the next one? In TP they had a flying part in it and it was okay but it could be improved.
I was thinking of some sort of giant eagle or some weird new race that Nintendo comes up with.

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

what about a rope of some kind? just a simple length of cord, but you could use it to make ziplines, rappel, climb up, set ropelines on slopes or ice, and other stuff like that. attach it to an arrow to stick it in wood, or grappel hook for anything that it can attach too, or tie it off on something. or attch it to your boomerang to rope up enemies. or set traps for enemies, or use it for the mundane task of tying up epona so she doesnt wander off. upgrades could make it longer, stronger, or maybe give it hook at the end, so you could attach it to enemies or use it as a weapon. basically, think off all the badass stuff batman does with ropes in the dark knight right before he fights joker at the end. now put that into zelda

Talking flying

I think in the new zelda there needs to be one thing... flying vehicles. i know its not very realistic with the time but think of flying around hyrule in a helicopter or plane. With a little twist a parachute.

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

I've had these ideas for a very long time

Starshot: A special powered hookshot with infinite range, that appears as a blue ray of light. Functions as a warping system, as there are only certain places where it can be used (sacred powered stones or something), both to shoot and attach. For quite a bit of the game there are only set warp lines that can be used, but eventually one such warp point is discovered on the moon (yes, I have an idea for a dungeon that takes place on the moon, but that's another topic), that allows universal warping to those points.

It would be also used to get between "rooms" in a collossaly large dungeon (again, for another topic)

Magnet Gauntlets: Metallic gloves that can glow with red electricity Not only do they allow link to lift slightly heavier objects, but they can be activated like any other item to attract metals and opposite charged objects (represented as blue magnetism like in goron mines), and repel like charged objects. Mainly used for puzzles and mobility (shimmying across magnetic ceilings, flying towards metal objects etc.) but can also be used in battle to disorient metal enemies (eg. Tripping over darknuts) and attract or repel some energy attacks.

Bubble Shield: A blue shield that has a bubble of a gelatinous substance on the front of it. Melee attacks and large objects elastically bounce off the shield. It can also be used to catch small objects, which can either be extracted, or remain inside the bubble for various effects. Mostly used for puzzles. The bubble breaks after repeated usage, but can be recharged by stepping in water or by using an empty bottle of water (very rarely would you need to do this). Mainly exists as a companion to a cliched golden fire sword, which is too cliched to mention here.

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

maybe a new hookshot upgrade that has a razor sharp hook that can hook on to anything stable enough to hold Link's body weight. like rocks and walls, if its too weak it crumbles.

more swords that break after a certain number of uses that you have to use until you get the Master sword, the Biggoron's sword would not break either

perhaps some different tunics that really doesn't do anything but just look cool.

more shields too, make the shields breakable too, all of them except the Mirror shield,

take out the finding hearts in grass. I really want rupees to have more of an importance, because normally I end up with like 5000 rupees and nothing to use them on (I would also prefer if they keep the Wii Zelda games realistic looking like TP, and have the WW style for the DS.

haha, Indiana Jones anybody?

I like the idea of having more than one use for items. It always pissed me off when I wanted to shove a magic bean down a deku baba's mouth but couldn't due to game engine blocks

lol

One I would like to see is a full-body suit for link (made by the gorons) that can stand heat and gives link the strength of a goron. it would make Iron Knuckle fights funner

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

When all the Valley of Deluge stuff first came out people were thinking about muskets and stuff, and people were really against it, me included. But it is definitely a possibility, though perhaps without the name of a musket, because before, in OoA I think, there was the Seed Shooter.

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

Different kinds of bombs:

Bomb (destroys rock barriers and cracked walls, causes explosions damage to enemies)
Inferno Bomb (destroys spider-web and leaf barriers, lights flammables, and causes fire damage)
Ice Bomb (freezes all enemies in blas radius and freezes certain bodies of water)

i had an idea a while ago for a dark knut set of armor. equivalent to the magic armor in that you get it rather late in the game as a sort of side quest. basically at first it would be a full set of armor with lots of protection but cumbersome, and as you get hit pieces would break off and it would eventually be nothing more than chain mail and scale armor offering little protection but fast. once it gets damaged, the only way to repair it would be back in town or by a fairy. really just a fun suit of armor

Re: The Official Ideas for Future Weapons Thread

im not sure if they made it already but an orb that could separate link into 4 different links it would be used to press switches that need four people to operate and can help you in battle to but when one gets hit it disappears however it reduces your magic at a rapid rate... so you need to use it carefully :p
