Whip Mastery

Postby Bryce » Mon Mar 21, 2016 11:54 am

While I don't think whip mastery should turn whips into lethal weapons, I think it'd be nice to unlock a few things.

- Near perfect chance to aim for the arms/hands or legs/feet in order to use the natural disarms and trips whips can do, and almost always trigger those effects when the hit lands. To clarify, I don't mean the attack accuracy should be near perfect so that it can't be dodged, just that if you're aiming for the arm, you should always succeed in aiming for that hit location. Considering the Disarm ability always hits the arm, Cutthroat always hits the neck, etc. I don't think this would be necessarily overpowered.
- A choke effect when hitting the neck.
- When you disarm a weapon with a whip, chance to whip the weapon further away so it's harder to retrieve, or even into an adjacent room.

And, of course, the ability to wrap the whip around things off-camera in order to swing across chasms and between windows of buildings. Okay, maybe not this one, although having some special room somewhere where this was possible for people with Whip Mastery, purely to show off, would be amazing.

I also forgot to propose a possible "unhorse" whip move where you yank the target from their horse (might work better if you yourself are mounted).

Bumping this because I actually managed to do enough combat to get Whip Mastery, finally.

Well then. That's a surprising amount of torture to put both you and your victim under!

I'd like to see whips being a bit more useful, since they're pretty great. There's plenty of choking mechanics in the game as is, and asphyxiation damage is pretty great. It'd be a good addition.
