What do you think about combos for item sets? If you get full set of related items, you get some boost for the stats. E.g. if you get Scorpion boots, Scorpion pauldrons and Scorpion tunic, you get something like “Full scorpion armor”, you get +100 poison damage on tops of all single item bonuses, or 10% up on single item stats or something like that.
It seems like bad side of the idea is that would tip the balance toward item importance a bit, but I am sure developers could balance it. On the other hand it would make the game much more interesting, and keep us playing more till getting item sets.
Would love to see your replies.
