Detailed gear. This could be a final step in forging. It would allow gleam or color coats to be placed on forged gear (or gear could just be run simply through the forge for some coloration ). One thing I miss about starting out is all the different colored tools you can make using different rocks. Now that I’m all leveled up, I just make gem tools, which are attractive, but choosing a color is more about functionality now. Let’s bring back the color!
I’m not in the end game, but this makes sense to me.
@Alienfish This is a fantastic idea, I would definitely recommend that this process be done outside of the forge though, hopefully a new machine.
We need more ways to specialize and I would love to see colorizing shops pop up.
“Glam Your Shovel Here”
“Free Bedazzling with your purchase of a grapple”
All players would gossip on who the best customizer is. Sounds awesome.
I know there was a design limitation with having multi-tinted items in game (which is why gem tools don’t have wooden handles), so not sure how plausible it would be to have these.
Although, I believe it would be possible to apply decals to an item (something they were exploring previously for wall drawings etc.) and then apply colour those … would look cool to be able to apply a flame decal to a hammer and then sell it!
