I think I will start overhauling the existing quest rewards for this today.

This means that existing alpha tester characters quest rewards will go POOF. Oh well. I figure sooner of later, everybody is going to hate me anyway, why not today?  >:D

Okay, quest update so far.

Olive branch quest gives +3% elemental resistance in normal, +5% in epic and +7% in legendary.

Skeleton Raider Brothers quest in Megara gives +5% vitality resistance in normal, +7% in epic and +10% in legendary.

Xanthippus staff fetch quest gives +3% poison resistance in normal, +5% in epic and +7% in legendary.

I added tags to teh initial quest dialog in the "reward item text" slot that describes the different values in each difficulty. The final quest journal entry includes a disclaimer describing the rewards for every difficulty since I can't change the journal entry based on difficulty in the quest editor to my knowledge. Just the one global journal entry for all difficulties.

Woohoo, good news indeed. I remember the old site had a guide for "worthwhile" quests. Looking through this list (full disclosure I haven't played  through act 5 yet) I jotted down some where a bonus could make sense. I know this mod already adds a few more skill points, but my thoughts are that multi part quests (hades treasurery, wealth of old kinds etc) should probably get a skill/attribute point as a nice juicy reward. rescuing people could get a small life/heal bonus for being such a nice person. (+5/10 hp or +5/10% hp regen. Very small to avoid opness as a lot of quests could fit in here)
Some that have obvious ties (order of promethean giving fire dmg, maybe cold dmg/res for killing the yeti?)

I put my suggestions in red, trying to space out a bit. Not sure if all this is possible so feel free to disregard, but thought it might give you some good ideas if you decide to go this route.

Thank you for this mountainblade, helps me keep track.

I have added +5%, 7% and 10% bleeding resistance to the act 4 Create a Diversion quest where you defeat the Melinoe Blood QUeen. (She stil needs some buffing)

Added +3%, 5% and 7% energy leech resistance to Egypt's Beggars Homes quest and removed the yellow ring reward so you still get an arcane formula and the resistance as well.

Ill keep everyone updated as I go.

Oh and mountainblade, what do you mean by "heal bonus" as opposed to flat HP? Like a permanent health regen bonus?

EDIT: Something I've wanted to do for years....instead of taking the staff to the corrupt power hungry high proest in Memphis, why not have an option to take it to the beggar and give it to him? Vive la revolucion! :D

Then when you talk to Zazamankh again he screams and attacks you ha ha!

Then on game load, the old beggar is now standing where Zazamankh was before! ha ha

And you could still do it by giving it to Zazamankh...say getting a intelligence boost, or if the beggar getting a strength boost or something.

the ones i can remenber,

general in repose quest is only to find 3x chest in the cave,like the skeleeton riders in greece, a better chance to drop blues itens will fit.

 wealth of the ancient kings , no need to change since you can get a unique item from the chest

I am afraid giving a enchant bonus like act 5, to master blacksmith would be difficult to implement ,i think, i would say better itens to his shop

A Promethean surrounded quest, could give a chance to get a blue item

Mystery in the mountains , i agree skill point

"Welcome to new home, be nice and strong ! "

I think I could replicate the forge quest for the Delphi secret shop. I could just remve the merchant qualities and maybe make a new quest to go get something in act 2 or a new dungeon he gives you a key to.

But it would be a matter of copying the quest that controls the forge quest in act 5, I just have to copy it and change a couple things.
