Scratched Coin, Cut Coin, and Chests Rework Idea

Right now, these two offerings prevent the spawn of either 1 or 2 chests. That's not bad, but it actually removes a minor objective from the game for the survivors. They're also quite bland as offerings.

Instead, I propose that they add more mindgames by adding in Empty Chests and Mimic Chests.

Scorched Coin:

  • Calls on the Entity to summon one extra chest and converts half of all chests to Empty Chests.
  • Empty Chests reward 75 Blood Points (Objective) for opening, but contain nothing.
  • This offering is now Secret.

Cursed Coin:

  • Calls on the Entity to summon one extra Chest and converts half of all chests to Mimic Chests.
  • Mimic Chests reward 500 Blood Points (Boldness) for opening, but contain a remnant of the Entity that prompts a Considerably Difficult Skill Check, and injures a survivor for missing it.
  • Hitting the Skill Check awards a bonus 100 Blood Points (Survival).
  • This offering is now Secret.

All Chests:

  • Now take 15 seconds to open.

Regular Chests:

  • Now reward 350 Blood Points (Objective) for opening.

Plunderer's Instinct Change:

  • Adds a (small?) chance to find a low quality item inside both Empty and Mimic Chests. Plays a sound cue if successful.
  • Increases success range for Mimic Chest Skill Checks by 15%.

Reasoning:
1. Removing objectives in the game only makes it more likely for survivors to gen rush. This way, while Survivors still get to keep two chests, they will also have another two that will soak up another 30 seconds of their time.
2. The Cursed Coin needs to give a good amount of Bloodpoints, such that Survivors have an incentive to attempt Chests upon figuring out the offering (again, we don't want them to AVOID ulterior objectives).
3. There are not enough Secret Offerings. Hardly anyone uses Shroud of Separation, so survivors know that it's a mori coming upon seeing a Secret Killer Offering.
4. More Blood Points for regular chest in exchange for making them longer, also to tempt greedy BP farmers to stop and do chests even when holding items.
5. Buff to Plunderer's because it makes sense.
6. Having the Killer's Coin counter the Survivors' Coins should've been standard.

Complicated, but let me know what you think.

    Great idea, but is the proposed change to Plunderer's an actual change or would all that stuff be added to the current Plunderer's? Secret offering would really shake up the game, so you don't just automatically know it's a more. I'd also really like to see the artwork for these new coins.

    Added onto the current Plunderer's. I'd decrease the aura reading radius for chests a teeny bit, but that's just my opinion.

    I would too but I suck at photoshop. Any volunteers? 😉
