Certain alloys...

Postby Makkah » Mon Nov 26, 2012 10:15 pm

Just curious if all the wiki-entry alloys are in-game.

Specifically are titanium, nickel, tungsten, rose gold, burgundy gold, and red brass.

The previous 3 really interest me since they're all real-life elements, not alloys; so they kind of surprise me, as an idea. Are rose gold (it's Paul Wall, baybah), burgundy gold, and red brass available?

Yes, they're all available. As far as I understand, the first three are actually byproducts, not really alloys. The last three are more what I think of as alloys.

After discussing them a little with some people I think Titanium, Tungsten and Nickel are all way above CLOK tech level.

Tungsten melts at a temperature WAY beyond what CLOK can reach (unless pyromancy is REALLY hot)
Getting Titanium and Nickel needs a chemical process that is unlikely to be available in CLOK.

Noticed titanium, nickel, and tungsten were taken off the wiki

:(

But you didn't notice it in the changelog a couple weeks ago?

They didn't seem very appropriate for the technology level of Clok.

I'm not sure about the others, but nickel doesn't seem unobtainable for Clok. Since Clok has both a medieval and western theme to it, I would say it's quite reasonable to use in the future, at least for plating. And while I know the internet lies, this article seems to agree: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nickel

They were broken, and as we were discussing it, we decided to just take it out for now, since there wasn't much use. So nickle may make a reappearance later, but we'll see. The other two are pretty much out for sure.

I'm dying to know... now that titanium and tungsten are likely out for good... how were they obtained in the first place? Or were they even available in game?
