I've been reading a book series with soul gems; so hear me out, and also have been frustrated whenever I lose a lot of EXP when I'm fighting off mobs.
The gems should be very expensive, and all have different tiers. The cheaper the material the less "power" a gem can have i.e. EXP, Health, (mana? maybe..), or similar potion effects; some gems give you extra damage for an amount of time, or extra speed, etc.. maybe some gems let you "parachute" from high cliffs. Keep in mind the tiers; the longer you hold down your right mouse button, the more the gem is drained; eventually destroyed.
Please elaborate on what materials these should be made out of if you want to make this mod. =)
Energy is absorbed from the user with ALL of these gems. Giving negative side-affects/even death if they are not fully armored, or would poison the user for an amount of time.
EXP Gem(green): Holds EXP in the Gem, which you can release if you right click on it. This EXP is taken from whatever you already have. It would help you with enchantments, or when you fear losing all your EXP.
Health Gem(red): Gives you instant extra health depending on the tier. The highest tier would give the player invincibility for an amount of time. (short) etc.. all health stored in it is taken from the player. Each tier gives the player a higher amount with each click, but most of these gems should hold a lot of health, provided the player restores them.
Parachute Gem(yellowish-white): Allows the player to slowly descent if the gem is right clicked and held when falling from a long distance.
Damage Gem(black): Gives extra damage boosts to the player (no matter what item they use, adding on to the damage a sword would of done if the player uses a sword). Negative affects would include slowness, or poison damage that saps health instantly whenever the gem is restored.
If you have any other ideas please post below
This was a spur of the moment idea I had. Not sure if its been created before, but this is just my idea.
Wow man, this is great! I can't believe you actually did it. =) The gem maker is an absolute win! Expensive
Is it possible to make the EXP Gem absorb EXP; like store EXP you've already earned and keep track of it? That'd be pretty sweet
But other than that dude you're doing an AMAZING job. Way more than I'd of hoped for!
