Had a bit of an idea when i saw my brother playing Fire Emblem

I have a Ballista class

But a Ballista is a giant, fortified weapon that launches humoungus arrows.

I liked this word for my new version of archer, but as it stands his skillset doesnt comply with his name.

Aside from that small factor; I was going to give them a unique weapon, only equipable by Ballista. It renders you immobile(to simulate the heavy weaponry) and gives a range of 12(to simulate its fucking badass)

I cant think of another name other than Catapult =( which doesnt work well with arrow projectile animations. would anyone suggest anything different? and list a few ideas for the weapons.
Formula is WP * PA, starting at 6 WP

Call them Polybolos.  ...although that was an "automatic", so to be entirely accurate, it would have the WA*WA formula...

Some possible names for individual weapons:
Grand Bolt
Godspear
Titan's Arrow

That's interesting.  Censoring the first part is predictable, but removing the latter half of it as well?  (The latter half of the name was "spear".)

renders immobile by complete reduction of the move stat?  Because teleport would like to chat!

Awesome idea SB.
Just another rebel plotting rebellion.

It could have Always: Don't Move, but you'd need to make sure no equipment gives immunities.  Unless "Always" overrides that.

Always Overrides that, and thats how i would do it.

Negative stats are on the list of wants, but not a priority :P
