I have thought of a few things i’d love to see in hacks, these are some of the stuff i’d think would be a nice addition to a nice hack or two
Weapon levels: Use a weapon and do a certain amount of dmg to level the weapon up. like say if a Iron Sword lvl 1 has 50 exp, you’d need to do 50 dmg and it would get say +1 dmg and +5 hit or something like that.
Stats: Perform certain actions to get more stats instead of leveling
Str/mag - Do a certain amount of dmg
skill - Land hits
speed - dodge hits
luck - skill + speed
def/res - tank a certain amount of dmg or amount of hits.
This idea I find interesting to see people balance if it was ever a thing.
Advanced Leveling: Expereience required to level is not a set 100 anymore, make it customizable 1 - 999 like it is in three houses kinda.
Instead of woking with class power levels, maybe do a max exp growth, could be fun.
