I MADE STEAMWHEEDLE FACTION ARMOR/WEAPONS

Post by Leozan » Mon Sep 27, 2021 12:19 pm

What is this?
This is a personal interpretation of armors & weapons worn by members of the Steamwheedle Cartel faction. Since there is no current sets for the faction atm I wanted to suggest a look at this interpretation.

Plus it can be a decent way to earn rep without grinding npc’s for days and days and days…

Inspiration?
I always imagined working for the Steamwheedle Cartel to be like working for a shady, greedy business. Members would display their wealth through opulent attire (gold or silver) that serves both form and function. Also when I think of Goblins my mind goes to goggles and monocles. I figure its a nice way to unify the different looks/races to a goblin aesthetic. Also most gear was chosen to be paired with a good long-sleaved shirt for extra customization.

All armor, stats. and weapon damage are copied from green quality gear found in the lower to mid 50's, using certain classification for respective classes (of the monkey = rogue). All similar type weapons (one handed___) have the same dps so choose which ever looks good to you. I tried to mix around armor from different sets to give more variety to the stlye while still keeping colors consistent.

How to obtain?
I haven't created the quests yet but basically I wanted the quarter master to offer a quest to each slot where players turn in neccesary crafting componets. You can consider these as extra recipies offered by faction quartermasters, in this case the Steamwheedle Cartel in Booty Bay. You have to be lv 60 to accept the quest so Hardcore players can't take advantage of this armor/weapon till they ahcieve immortality. I plan to make the quests class specific to help organise the many items, but the requirments will be more general so more crafting minded players can also make a good profit! We could even have low lv material as turn ins to create a wider demand new players can supply

*** Mostly chose male model pictures since certain female models cut out segments of life saving body armor for...reasonshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcqY40Kx2RY? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯***

*** I did not put anything in the first "entry" tab as I wasn't sure which numbers were taken. If A dev can give me a free numerical range I can make adjustments***

***Let me know of any mistakes and I will make proper adjustments***

Closing Comments

Since there isn't a dedicated section in the forum to post these sets (made a suggestion with visuals here https://forum.turtle-wow.org/viewtopic ... 225#p12225), I'll keep them here for now untill they are finished. If there is a specific place a dev would like me to post these items for later, just let me know and I'll do just that.

If something like this can be done with other minor factions, each having their own quest turn in materials, then it would be a great boost to the economy. More and more crafting mats (both gathering and profession parts/components) will have additional uses that potentially players of every profession & skill level can take advantage of.


Other uses?
The great thing about the item creator is the ease of swapping out models to make new stuff. If there is a particular look you want to make using these stats, simply do the following:
1) Click on the link below the class picture you want to create for. Once at wowhead's dressing room customize the look you want your character to have.

2) Once your Armor/Weapons are decided, copy the model ID for each slot by clicking on each item and then clicking "ID" from the pop up menu to copy the ID number.

3) Go to the respective item on this list, then click the url link to the Turtle Wow item creator.

4) Change the number on the "display_id" tab to the ID you copied from wowhead dressing room. Also change the item name to whatever your custom set/item will be called.

5) Once finished copy and paste your item either in the respective Turtle Wow forum section, or save it somewhere else for later changes.

You still have to mention/create how you want your item to be obtained ingame however, so let the devs know!

Can I get a dev confirmation on all this before I start making quests for 168 custom items?

Just let me know if it conflicts with any plans for dev created faction armor/weapons (like what they did for the Revantusk).

Well I’m mostly wondering if you folks already had plans for steamwheedle faction items. What was done for the revantusks trolls was awesome, but if your planning something specific like that for the cartel then I can always repurpose this (swapping names/model ids).

Certainly something like this would take a while to implement, but if it can help serve as a baseline/guide now then I’m glad to finish it up.

Let me know when possible, as you mentioned the team is tackling bigger projects atm.

You're free to submit all your work in an appropriate thread and release everything you have in mind at your own pace. Once the team is ready to tap on ideas from outside I'm sure your work will have its deserved attention. smiling_turtle
