I introduced Thermoden back in March, (doesn't time fly?) and to my surprise, it's reason for creation has far succeeded my predictions. Thermoden was created to give, at a nice cost, weapon upgrades, the ability to equip and second weapon, and equipment renaming. To date, to my amazement, Thermoden has taken $11,450,000,000 out of the game economy (To compare, that's around 1/4 of the total money in game at the moment!!) Which is indeed still impressive as I've seen games in their trillions. So to expand this success, here are some new updates based on your suggestions...
I'm sure you've noticed that empty unused slot on the equipment page? Well, that slot will is available for shield equipping.
Parch has been working hard behind the scenes in order to get a bunch of shields made at the warehouse, and thats where he puts them on sale. The shield warehouse shop is now open at Thermoden. Parch, a resident of Thermoden, is currently the only vampire with the skills to make such equipment. There will not be a shield shop opening at Dead City.
Parch has no use of the shields after you buy them, but you can sell them to the Dead City reseller store for half their value.
As with the second weapon, you need to pay a fee to unlock the ability to equipment a shield, and you can only equip a shield if you have not got a second weapon equipped. (Works both ways, if you have a second weapon equipped, you cannot equip a shield at the same time.)
The defence tests on your homepage will now also take your shield defence into account, and finally, shields have the same exp and level up system as the weapons and armour.
Parch's Unlock Store
The unlock store now has the option for you to pay to unlock the use of a shield.
Parch's Shield Enhancement
You've learned the ability to use a shield, you've bought a shiny new shield, and you want to give it a one time upgrade? Well you can at the shield enhancement store.
Parch's Rename Store
You can also rename your shield, just like with your weapon and armour.
Covens & Battles
Don't panic! Shields can be donated to covens. I've opened up a nice little slot for them in your coven's armoury. The top of the battle pages also now shows your shield if you have one (instead of your second weapon).
I hope you enjoy the Thermoden updates, and enjoy finding out whether 2 defence equipment works out better for you over dual weapons. For those that can afford such luxuries, will you be using a shield, or second weapon? Fire off your comments and thoughts on this thread.
