Runes of Enlightenment (in General)

QBJohnnywas July 27 2005 1:47 PM EDT

What's one of these - check out tattoos overview!!!

Biscuitback July 27 2005 1:49 PM EDT

i don't think it's there yet

(CB1)logan666 [Jago] July 27 2005 1:51 PM EDT

It's in Stats/Items/Tattoos but not item meta-stats yet.

A Runes of Enlightenment lvl 20 owned by Jonathan (expostfacto)

Pysche July 27 2005 1:54 PM EDT

He is probably still testing it out.
When it is ready he will post it in the change log.

AdminShade July 27 2005 1:59 PM EDT

A Runes of Enlightenment?

strange name... (A Rune or just Runes would be better imo :P)

Barron [CB2BANK Investors Club] July 27 2005 2:06 PM EDT

Who wants to guess what it does?

I guess that it increases enchantments cast by minion(s).

Stephen Young July 27 2005 2:07 PM EDT

Maybe this is related to the fact that the tats are going nuts right now?

Maelstrom July 27 2005 2:10 PM EDT

probably/possibly a new supporter item...

Chargerz-Back July 27 2005 2:10 PM EDT

/me gets $6 ready just in case

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] July 27 2005 2:12 PM EDT

maybe a tattoo that gives some sort of protection against magic? :-p

Maelstrom July 27 2005 2:12 PM EDT

It's in meta stats now, but without any info

Stephen Young July 27 2005 2:14 PM EDT

Or maybe ::GASP:: it boosts DD's! /me faints

maulaxe July 27 2005 2:54 PM EDT

i sure wish Jon would "enlighten" us already...

Maelstrom July 27 2005 3:29 PM EDT

Grant is using it now. Still no visible effect...

[EG] Almuric July 27 2005 3:34 PM EDT

According to meta-stats:
Base AC0. Does not spawn in stores. Not upgradeable.

So it's almost certainly a supporter item. I'm guessing it helps spell casters.

I remember when the Cloak of Balrog Flame was being played with it was called a 'Holocaust Cloak', so this isn't necessarily the final name.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] July 27 2005 3:40 PM EDT

Holocaust Cloak was only changed because many players found the name offensive, though, Jon could always change the name :-P

Arorrr July 27 2005 4:22 PM EDT

I found Runes of Enlightenment name is very offensive to my 50 IQ. Please change it, Jon. You don't want to make idiots like me feel offended now, do you?

Will [Retired] July 27 2005 4:25 PM EDT

Enlightenment doesn't mean smart Mr.Dimwoody, it means at peace with oneself...

hehe ;P

mchaos July 27 2005 4:37 PM EDT

Ummm, your sort of both wrong... (also I had no idea that beatitude was a word)

n 1: education that results in understanding and the spread of knowledge [ant: unenlightenment] 2: (Hinduism and Buddhism) the beatitude that transcends the cycle of reincarnation; characterized by the extinction of desire and suffering and individual consciousness [syn: Nirvana] 3: a movement in the 18th century that advocated the use of reason in the reappraisal of accepted ideas and social institutions

Perhaps Jonathan is hoping the CB community will use more reason when reappraising the rules of CB2 ;)

Barron [CB2BANK Investors Club] July 27 2005 4:42 PM EDT

Given the above definition, I bet it's an Enchanter Familiar of some sort.

Maelstrom July 27 2005 4:46 PM EDT

Then why does Grant have it on a FB minion?

Barron [CB2BANK Investors Club] July 27 2005 4:48 PM EDT

So what? It's a familiar casting something on a minion that shoots fireballs. Just speculation,

Relic July 27 2005 4:55 PM EDT

I fought his minion with my lower level chars and from what it looks like, it is Enlightening his Mage and making his DD spell stronger. I could be off here, but that is what it appears like to me.

Blarg July 27 2005 4:55 PM EDT

i don't think its a familiar, i fought grant and didn't kill anything other than his 4 minions.

Barron [CB2BANK Investors Club] July 27 2005 5:04 PM EDT

Hmm...The only spell that's not reflected in armor or items is Protection. Maybe it's a Protection Tattoo. Enlightenment makes me think of a Paladin.

Or, maybe it protects the wearer against malevolent enchantments, like AMF, DM and EC

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] July 27 2005 5:08 PM EDT

Or maybe it requires "the use of reason in the reappraisal of accepted ideas and social institutions". It's an item to improve chat quality!

Synco July 27 2005 5:10 PM EDT

It makes you smarterer.

BooDiggens July 27 2005 5:12 PM EDT

The new tattoo makes you bartjan?

Karmic Mishap [Soup Ream] July 27 2005 5:50 PM EDT

No, Bast, so far the best item for improving chat quality has been the oldest one: /kick ^.~

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 27 2005 6:53 PM EDT

I'm actually glad of it's incarnation. If it was an xp gaining tatto, and not inakbale (being a support item) I'd never use it.
