Feedback Friday 8-15-14

Another week by already? Time sure does fly when you're having fun. And let's have more fun!

Today, let's talk about those precious items you hold in your hands. Casting wands, staves (yes that’s the plural of staffs), swords, musical instruments and more are all used to cast spells. What other items would you like to use to cast spells?

Hope the rest of your Friday is fantastic, and your weekend wonderful!

Sometimes, there are just technical limitations that make changing things difficult to impossible, and though we possess all manner of magic wands here, there are technological beasts out there that are beyond our grasp. Sometimes, we may not feel it is within the spirit and vision of the spiral to add or change something. Also, we realize that some of these topics may have been addressed before in other threads - sometimes it's good to pick up a discussion again. Chances are I have read your threads and would like to hear more!

Magical gloves similar to the damage enhancing sun spells like strong, monstrous, gargantuan, colossal, etc.

More musical instruments. Let's see some electric guitar rocking out hits.
Bongo Drums with some quake action.
Big wooden matchstick, you drag it on the ground running forward to light it then throw it at enemy for .
Venus Flytrap in a pot for ... walk forward and have it grow and chomp down on enemy's head.
will think of more later

I'd like to see just our hands, like gloves or gauntlets. Wielding and conjuring magic with just your bare hands. Built in power to scare all your foes!

Another thing I think would be interesting is a fishing rod wand that gives fishing stats maybe. It'll also look nice as you're.. "casting" spells

My favorite so far are the wands that look like a Bow & Arrow.
I also love it when my pet casts their spell.

Axes, Shields, Make more one handed swords that look really cool

I would like to have gloves with really cool effects (such as making mist when casting spell), a single card that floats and turns into seven cards (as if your deck is in front of you), power rings and fairy friend that fly around you and form into the spell. I think those would be awesome!

I had an idea for maybe a future chapter, where the goal of the chapter was to find in the different new worlds special pages for a magic book of spells. You need to have all the pages of the Book of the Guardians of he light in order to defeat the main villain which has a powerful book of shadows. The book is like the deck of cards except it can been seen in world and it can hold more spells. During a battle the book floats and the spells come out of it. It can float either infront of the wizard or it appears in the center of the battle circle. The book can also sense or inform of magic. When you defeat the boss of a world you get pages in the book. They will let the wizard know of the magic they can learn from the next world. The pages can also contain some small but cool spells that the wizards can use that relate to the world the pages came from. Like pages from khrsallis will give you the bee attack spell. Basically its more informative than the deck of cards and can increase in power unlike wands that don't . I think its a cool idea if its possible.

I know we already have amulets but what about bracelets or necklaces? Watches that cast a time spell of some sort?

Apr 08, 2012
Chains with a school emblem trinket on them that wrap around the hand like prayer beads except a chain. Life trinket for the life version, Fire for fire version and so on. Have the trinket shake and glow when you cast a spell.

Dec 05, 2010
Like you guys said I think it would be so cool if u had musical instruments like the saxophone trumpet or even the flute

Feb 07, 2010
I'm pretty sure you've asked this question before, and I only came up with two new ideas since then answers have not changed. My original suggestions were a crystal ball and a cauldron. I think the animations for the cauldron would be carrying it on a handle, and putting it down when you stop. For casting the wizard would reach into his/her robe, pull out a flask, and drop it in.

My new ideas are a lantern, and a flaming torch.

I would love to see an update to hands as wand casting. It looks sort of cool now, but an update that makes that look useful or being able to stitch items to hands would be cool.

Jul 26, 2011
How about a magic orb? It could sort of look the the Khrysalis Orbs maybe? Just a thought

May 22, 2009
I would like to see a fishing pole, pipe wrench, or a coffee cup.

Feb 24, 2013
Hmm maybe a MICROPHONE XD or a stuffed animal :) and some cotton candy would be appreciated. :D And finally, a Heart floating like the grimoire in the SCB :)

Oct 19, 2008
Electric guitars! Definitely! I play the guitar and it would be so cool to cast spells with them! And they can be designed to specific schools like flames for fire school, a skull for death school, lighting for storm, etc.

Oct 01, 2010
maybe the next wand equipment item should be a magical bracelet so it looks like you are using regular hands because the hand animation is cool but no wand makes you weak

I'd love to see a mace, a whip and possibly fist weapon wands. I wanna smash my foes with a heavy mace fit for power. I'd love to have a whip to "stun" my enemies with. I'd also love to give some khrysalis bugs a good nice ol punch in the antennas! I'd also like to see some mystical items like orbs, grimoires (I want more of them in the game besides the spiral cup gauntlet one) and some paint brushes/pens/pencils. I wanna see some flails too, just like the first boss in the final dungeon of celestia! or even a replica of an bosses/npc's weapon to stitch with (meaning the replica will have no stats and it's only purpose is to look cool).

Indiana Jones whips. Or schools holding there school symbol...

Mar 13, 2014
A shovel like the ghoul attack animation uses
An umbrella
A fan (mooshu!)
A scroll--normally carried rolled, but in the spellcast animation you open it up and read from it
A torch

I would love to see a way you could an animal as your wand sort of like taylor Coleridge I would love a Turtle for a wand

We should be able to use our voice to sing or yell out spells.
