Default Ironclad Rune

Ironclad and Spike Runes aren't used by the clans that have enough RP to activate any rune they want. Why? They are generally bad, especially at cap.

Suggestion: give small percentage-based bonuses to each rune in addition to the current bonuses.

R1 Ironclad: +50 AC and +2% AC. Extra 1% AC if using shield.
R2 Ironclad: +100 AC and +3% AC. Extra 1.5% AC if using shield.
R3 Ironclad: +150 AC and +4% AC. Extra 2% AC if using shield.
R4 Ironclad: +200 AC and +5% AC. Extra 2.5% AC if using shield.
R5 Ironclad: +250 AC and +6% AC. Extra 3% AC if using shield.
R6 Ironclad: +300 AC and +7% AC. Extra 3.5% AC if using shield.

R1 Spike: +1 to ALL attack damage and +1% to all minimum damage.
R2 Spike: +2 to all attack damage and +2% to all minimum damage.
R3 Spike: +3 to all attack damage and +3% to all minimum damage.
R4 Spike: +4 to all attack damage and +4% to all minimum damage.
R5 Spike: +5 to all attack damage and +5% to all minimum damage.
R6 Spike: +6 to all attack damage and +6% to all pally damage.





It'd be nice if, in addition to its normal bonus, it gave a % bonus to AC if you had a shield.

For example:
R1 gives +50 AC and then increases your AC by 4% if you have a shield equipped.
R2 gives +100 AC and then increases your AC by 8% if you have a shield equipped.
R3 gives +150 AC and then increases your AC by 12% if you have a shield equipped.
R4 gives +200 AC and then increases your AC by 16% if you have a shield equipped.
R5 gives +250 AC and then increases your AC by 20% if you have a shield equipped.
R6 gives +300 AC and then increases your AC by 25% if you have a shield equipped.

The numbers are just examples, of course, but I think this would make the rune more viable at all level ranges. Low levels using shields could gain a few dozen extra AC, which would be useful for them.

For slow effects, use the slow % but as a negative.

Just repeat for multiple effects.

DO NOT multiply by 1+slow% to get your new delay. 1*1.4 is not the same as 1/0.6 and your answer will be wrong.

Agree 100%. This rune has to give something more than the potions. It has been useless for too long.

I support. I never see ironclad being used in high end clans. Only beginner clans. But nibbles, why did you break the AC increase pattern? R6 should be 24 instead of 25 if you keep raising it by 4%.

Bumping for Sox. Ironclad and Spike should both give a small percentage bonus as well as a static bonus.

Still support. Spike and ironclad have potential if tweaked carefully.

Request seems a little self-serving to me. Correctly built piercer is already an awesome melee toon. Didn't pallys just get a buff with the resist changes?? We have 6+++ spike active in Merc, just an fyi.

Active in loony too, but almost nobody uses it except for a couple people who whine each time loony tries to replace it with another rune
