Legendary Creep Traits (They Were Real)

I was looking through some of the old PvMP dev diaries (sadly too few in number) and came across something I not only didn’t expect, but don’t remember at all. Buried within the Book 10 dev diary is this rather interesting comment from Orion:

Monster player legendary traits! Cheer! Shout for joy! The mechanism is still under development, but we’re planning on adding monster player legendary traits.

Not only was the idea of legendary traits for creeps considered, it was actually under development! So what happened?

I looked through the subsequent dev diaries dealing with the Ettenmoors, but there is no further mention of creep legendary trait, either to say they were still under development or that the project had been cancelled.

It’s both fun, and disappointing, to wonder what these legendary traits might have been. What abilities might they have granted? How would they have been obtained? How many would there have been? Could this have led to creep trait lines?

Those are all questions we don’t have answers to. What we do know is that at some point in the distant past of the game the idea of giving creeps legendary traits was briefly toyed with, sadly never to be heard of again.

    iirc, it was instantly QQed over by freeps and was thus discarded into the massive pile of great ideas that never made it due to QQ

  2. Oh! I can well believe that of course, but it that were the reason then it really would suck. It’s a great idea and I wish they had gone through with it.

      Ya, I keep saying that trait lines are one of the major discrepencies between freeps and creeps

  3. Trait lines would be awesome for creeps. They would really help us to a) tailor our play based on what we were doing and b) have more fun tinkering with our creeps.

    Would have been great to see these, my dream legendary would be an ‘untrackable’ toggle skill. Would have to be hard enough to earn and have some sort of sacrifice to even get close to getting past the freep whining but a warg can dream.
