Hi everyone! It's Friday, it's time for Feedback, so let's get to it, shall we?

On KI Live yesterday, @JellyQuin asked us a fantastic question - what is the funniest weapon in the game? I would like to pose this one to everyone else as well. My follow up would be - if you could create a new "funny" weapon, what would it be?

If you want to know my answer, you'll have to check out the replay of KI Live when it's posted. ::grin:: To be quite honest, I know you can all do better than my on-the-spot answer, so I can't wait to read your suggestions below!

Have a fantastical Friday and wonderful weekend!

A wand and hat that has a bunny inside, and its casting animation has us tap the top of the hat with the wand and then pull out the rabbit.

My list on funny weapons would be as follows.

1. A yoyo.
2. A feather duster.
3. A twisted up towel.
4. A blanket (think of it as what the peanuts character Linus carried around all the time)

I don't know if this counts as funny, but I think it would be really cool if we had a weapon that's invisible but makes our hands glow a certain color depending on our school. It's pretty much the same as how it looks when you cast a spell without having a weapon equipped, but your hands would glow and maybe you would do something else.

For example, maybe you could do some wave if you want to cast a blade or trap, and if you're doing a spell that does damage, your character could throw a fist in the air. It would show that our character has a higher level of mastery over a school of magic since we can manipulate it without the use of a wand.

Smacking people with a fish, as mentioned in the livestream, is actually a pretty funny idea already. Someone above mentioned a twisted up towel? Aww, locker room antics.

I'm thinking maybe a toy gun that looks menacing but then shoots out the old cliche "BANG!" message on a little flag with confetti flying everywhere, or a flower on our lapel that shoots out seltzer water? Hardly original, I know, pardon.

If I may go off topic, regarding an idea that the special guest author brought up- the ability to control your minions. I wholeheartedly support that. I think that'd bring a whole new depth to gameplay, especially with Monstrology.

It's quite funny really, when facing Ptolemos last night I had little choice but to buy a level 60 Life henchman. My boyfriend came over and he asked me the usual questions a non-gamer might ask, like "Which one are you?" "Who is that?" "Is that another player?" etc.

I explained to him, and after he heard me complain about it using a Dryad when my health was already full he asked me "You can't tell it what to do?" and I was like "Funny you should ask that..."

I would love to have rainbow or lightening lasso to throw around the enemy and disable them for one round.

a lasso that becomes a tornado and spins the enemy around and stuns him one round. I think a lasso charm to disable would be great.

I don't believe I've seen a rubber chicken wand, or a flower that sprays water on the enemy, or a hat that gives you clown hair and a red rubber nose, or a wand that turns into a flower when you cast a spell. Also a large tuna fish wand that smacks the bad guy on the head, or even a red herring wand.

I'd probably make a whoopee cushion, that you throw up into the air and smack with both your hands. LOL

A kazoo. Just a kazoo. You play an off-key fanfare when a spell is cast.

Action figure wands!!!

THEY COULD BE OF:
1. Merle Eyebrows (me and my friend call him Merle Eyebrows XDDDD)
2. Malistare (And Undying as well)
3. Morganthe
4. All the school teachers
5. Could also do the Arcanum scholars.

I accidentally put this response on the pirate page, but here it is again. My silly idea.

A Slinky. It would be held in both hands. When idle you move it up and down between your hands. When you attack with it you toss it from your right hand (while keeping hold of one end) and it slaps the enemy then recoils back to your hand.
Possibly a balance wand since it would be balanced between your hands?

A shoe. But not just any shoe - I want a stiletto heel that I can raise up and use like a dagger. Also, a briefcase, so I can slap them in the face with it. (Okay, clearly I have issues with 'professional' accessories....)

Agreed to all the suggestions that we fight with fishes. That would be fun!

And ... one day while doing a daily assignment, I was awarded a 'roasted drumstick' housing item that looks like a cooked turkey leg. It would make a hilarious wand during Thanksgiving...

A couple of ideas:

1) A water balloon - you throw it at creature and it pops open splashing them with lots of water damage

2) A rubber ball - you throw it at them, it hits them causing damage then bounces back to your hand

3) A kitchen sink. That way you can claim to have thrown everything including the kitchen sink at the monsters.

What would be awesome, is if you could have a sign as a weapon/wand. I'd think it be funny to see your wizard whack enemies with a sign. You could also customize the sign to say a bunch of funny phrases, like the housing signs.
