I find it rather imbalanced that upgrading lower grade armor requires the same scrolls as upgrading higher grade items. Paper classes like mages and BPs get fucked majorly as they pretty much cannot afford anything other than +5/goblins because going further than that requires using BUS, which is the same for other classes using chitin (shell). As the price for BUS will propably be the same as one chitin +1 its even more of an advantage to the other classes. I have no experience on buying/farming wpn-def armors but Im guessing their drop rate wont be high consindering we all know how powerful they were back in the days.
I included a poll even if it wont affect the outcome of the upgrade system, just wanna see how others feel about it.
EDIT: a few arguments brought I gathered from the topic and off the top of my head for those too lazy to read.
Increasing the cost for LUS will fix this problem, at the moment youre getting way worse upgrade % with scrolls that cost 240k than with LUS (11k) in USKO.Paper classes will have a big advantage if LUS are included as they can easily and cheaply upgrade +8/+9 armors in the beginning
This is something to think about, increasin the cost of MUS would hurt warriors and rogues in the early stages, but leaving the cost at 110k would make Upgrading FPs a LOT cheaper than upgrading marginally if at all better chitins. I'm not gonna suggest any numbers but scrolls should propably be more expensiveFP priests overpowered! MUS cheap compared to BUS, weapon defense armors are mostly FP
Upgrading papers to +5 isnt exactly cheap, if 1 out of 10 (propably worse when upgrading with NUS) go to +5 you're looking at something like 30 scrolls, which is like 3 BUSPaper from the NPC, + 240k upgrade scroll
High Class armors from merchants/farming + 2.4mill upgrade scroll.
as for the ones iwth chitins/shells, yes it's hard and expensive to have them, but aren't they better than papers?
