Pretty much similar to how some mmorpgs give a unique effect to using all the set in an armor series. The reason for suggesting this is to give more possible playstyle aside from basing it in your average stat and class.
New Feature: Armor Set Unique Effects
Rare armors and rarities above it that aren’t used as vanity will now grant a unique effect if everything in the series is worn.
List of Unique Effects
Ravenna Noble Armor Set: Gives “Adrenaline” which upon receiving a fatal attack, gain 1% of your hp back. Indicated by the same thunder explosion that Elius gets whenever he enters 2nd phase.
Ravenna Apostle Gi Set: Gives “Brawler” which gives dazed status to your enemy upon continuously landing 4 attacks within 5 seconds and lasts for 3 seconds. Refreshes the status if activated again while still active and the status itself increases damage taken by 5%.
Lien Of Ravenna Set: Gives “Roar” which everytime you first land an attack to a player while out of combat would have their audio muffled with ringing and their screen slightly blurred, imitating a flashbang. Gives the same effect if chainmail is used instead.
Ravenna Fallen King Set: Gives “Royalty” which increases your luck by 5% while the whole set is worn. Allows you to normally wear your outfit in Ravenna without alerting the guards.
Cernyx’s Set: Gives “Sacrifice” which increases passive regeneration by 2.5% and health regained per kill by 5%. Allows you to not aggro cultists while the whole set is worn.
Sunken Iron Armor Set: Gives “Float” which allows you to have bubbles easily lift you up whenever space is held underwater while the whole set is worn.
Sunken Warrior Armor Set: Gives “Rush” which allows you to dash while underwater while the whole set is worn.
Vatrachos Armor Set: Gives “LIfesteal” which gives 1% of max health upon landing a successful hit on the enemy.
Theurgist Robe Set: Gives “Holy” which permanently gives clearsight 3 effect while the whole set is worn. The status itself would not show up in the bottom right and gets overwritten when a real clearsight potion above its tier was drank.
Of course it could be different but the main idea is pretty much give armor series a unique effect. I’m just limited to what I could think of by limiting my imagination to what I know in the game so yeah…
Idk tbh, I didnt really give much thought in dark sea sets since it’s kinda hard to think of stuff related to the dark sea aside from holy, unless there’s some sort of lore which vetex didnt publicly tell, as indicated by some structures and symbols
idk about mst of these, if armor sets ever give a bonus i’d rather it apply very loosely to only a handful of sets, not every single rare and beyond lol, but I heavily agree with some armors/ sets giving you bonuses so you can take my vote
Making a new effect for every bloody boss set in the game will be virtually impossible. Also, almost nobody uses a complete boss set, as that would leave one lacking defense (unless you use Argos, but then you have intensity )
I think this would be better suited for gems or something, like rare gems that instead of a stat boost give these instead. Hell I could imagine some of these being potions instead (like adrenaline, literal drugs).
