If I Were a Dev

How would you name/design health and resources?

DREW: Power to power your gadgets (charge abilities, focus items, etc.) – same across the board. DCUO combo of weapons and powers with change-up abilities separate from skills. Passive increase based on progression. Minimal gear differential between gear at max level – better skills cost more power, determined more by level than gear (10-20% at most). “Health” Displayed graphically as an armor image. “Power” as battery. Modding important.

JOE: SWTOR Style customization, Guild Wars 2 style look. One stat for health and power, 20% variance in classes / gear level. Designed for multiple gear sets (burst vs sustained, etc.). Modding important.
