I dont really get joker, he looks like a regular person and doest look funny at all and gives away worthless random stuff. I have come up with some suggestions to improve joker.

 

When you see joker, he is a barrel with a clown face on it. You click on the barrel and a green gnome jumps out and hands you a mysterious potion. You drink the potion and gives you some random effects(of course you dont know the effect untill you drink it so you dont know whether is a postitive effect or a negative one.

 

Positive Effects

Exp Potion: gives random amount of exp to a random skill exp is 500-5000 exp

Pick Potion: gives you a pick point

Teleport Potion: Teleports you teleport room 5 uses

Haul Potion: Adds 10 emu to your carry cappacity

Perk Potion: Gives you a random positive perk for 1-6 ingame hours(afk counts)

 

Negative Effects

Poisoned potion: Poisons You Twice the effect of snake bite

Death Potion:Kills you right away like regular death

Heavy loss potion: Kills you and you lose ALL your items

Neg Perk Potion: Curses you with a neg perk for 1-6 ingame hours(afk doesnt count)

Load Potion: Temporarily decreases your max emu by half for 6 ingame ours(afk doesnt count)

Anti Teleport Potion: You cant use teleport rings, spells or use the beam command. Also cant use ships.

 

This will add some excitement to the bland boring jokers.

 

Edit: I edited my post so that the penalties of the load and anti-teleport potions are more severe.

Yeah, I like these ideas. I was really dissapointed the first time I found joker, and all I got was a loaf of bread <_< . But, the anti-teleport potion and load potions really wont do much to you. I for one, have never even used a teleport ring, and I rarely carry all 320 emus i can carry, usually about 20-30 less.

I always imagined joker as a court jester. You know, colourful clothes and those hats with the bells on the spikes... Then I found him and my heart broke.

I kind of like the idea, but, given that it's hard to find him in the first place, I think he should give out only positive things. I'd probably skip him all together if there was a chance of getting anything negative.

Maybe the prizes could be improved a tad, since hes harder to find now. But I don't think he should give out anything negative, otherwise he wouldn't be worth looking for.

and giving pickpoints/emu is bad and unfair

 

well, or let the joker give evryone 5 PP's max.

and 100 Emu max.

I like the idea of having more variety to the Joker prizes, but also remember that the Joker is more of a fun thing, than something genuinely useful.

 

Positive Effects

Exp Potion: gives random amount of exp to a random skill exp is 500-5000 exp

Pick Potion: gives you a pick point

Teleport Potion: Teleports you teleport room 5 uses

Haul Potion: Adds 10 emu to your carry cappacity

Perk Potion: Gives you a random positive perk for 1-6 ingame hours(afk counts)

 

Negative Effects

Poisoned potion: Poisons You Twice the effect of snake bite

Death Potion:Kills you right away like regular death

Heavy loss potion: Kills you and you lose ALL your items

Neg Perk Potion: Curses you with a neg perk for 1-6 ingame hours(afk doesnt count)

Load Potion: Temporarily decreases your max emu by half for 6 ingame ours(afk doesnt count)

Anti Teleport Potion: You cant use teleport rings, spells or use the beam command. Also cant use ships.

 

 

A few comments:

 

Exp Potion: gives random amount of exp to a random skill exp is 500-5000 exp

Could work if the xp amount is in the lower range

Pick Potion: gives you a pick point

This is a bad idea, pickpoints should not be given, nor attributes.

Teleport Potion: Teleports you teleport room 5 uses

Maybe a scroll (or potion) with one use, not 5

Haul Potion: Adds 10 emu to your carry capacity

In any case this should be timed, like: adds 10 emu for 1 hour, non-cumulative.

Perk Potion: Gives you a random positive perk for 1-6 ingame hours(afk counts)

This afk-thing is hard to determine, and the time frame should be more like 1 hour, not more

 

For all the negative potions/effects

The Joker in itself is sort of a perk, you are lucky to find him, his reward(s) should not be negative. There is no need to constantly seek to balance things out.

Maybe there shouldnt be neg effects

 

how about

 

Exp potion= 50-500 exp?

Haul potion gives 100 emu to carry cappacity for 1 hour

no Pick Potion

To replace pick potion

Skill increase potion Increases a random skill by 10lvs for 1 ingame hour

That's worthless, it is maybe funny, but you can't do things with it!

So, than you found the joker only for a weird 1 hour skin...

I'm not sure what I expected but certainly not what he is! But yeah, it was a huge letdown to finally see him.

I think he needs a makeover as well.

I realize that no one has any incentive to search for the joker right now. I am wondering how many people would start exploring when they see a message "<insert name here> found the joker and got a steel two edge of ice" instead of his current crappy prizes. Of course, you would want a low chance of having good prizes, but at least have SOME!

a pickpoint to me right now is worth around 3.5 million experience points. NO WAY should pickpoint be just given out for finding joker. Its totally unfair. thats my 2 cents worth.

When you start the game or when you reset you can get like 5 pickpoints in a minute and no one has reached a level where they need 3.5million exp to increase oa lv (I think)

Yeah, all suggestions, seems cool. I remember my 2 first jokers i got a few gold coins and a bread. These days i got a steel shiel, not wonderful, but at least useful.

It would be cool a Joker with joker cloathes and look. :angry:

After lvl 110 oa, you need 3.5million exp to lvl up. In the top 50 page there are 9 people on those conditions. Pickpoints start to get rare after lvl 50 so its really unfair to joker give one for free.
