A Gary Gygax T-Shirt Grants 2 AC and a fatherly Aura about your team ^_^

Dwarven Set, granting mostly STR.

HP set (Priest set?)

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] October 1 2008 2:59 PM EDT

Dwarven set is ONLY forgeable, with 24% more efficiency to allow forgers to charge 100% NW

Actually, I've been thinking about that too, we have BS-only items, why not forgeable-only items too?

Goodfish October 1 2008 4:34 PM EDT

Because the Blacksmith is a necessary cash sink and forging is not. It just shuffles money around between people, which is typically a bad thing (as opposed to simply deleting said monies).

Second on the GG item!

A Pair of Entbark Boots (0) +18
[every point insulates the wearer against shocking grasps bonus to damage from base AC]

A Lightning Rod or A Mage Killer Coil [68x0] (+37)
[Does damage as per a normal weapon with the addition of a certain amount of shocking grasp damage absorbed and returned once per round with a hit]

A Rune of Faraday lvl 20
[absorbs shocking grasp damage up to 1/4 of it's level and does a passive damage return to attacking minions of up to 1/8th it's level, could also add a kill slot with no offensive or casting abilities, just a fixed number of HP that cannot be boosted by AS or PL'ed from]

Lord Tesla's Helm (0) +13
[absorbs a fixed percentage of shocking grasp damage and adds double the plus as a percentage bonus to HP upon taking damage]

A Super Soaker [0x0] [+37]
[does no damage, every hit increases AMF return (but doesn't lower damage) for minions casting shocking grasp]

Somebody sure wants to make SG worthless. ;)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 1 2008 5:56 PM EDT

worthless no... but I'd really like to be able to have ammo when the "SG makes the baby jesus cry" crowd starts in...

If we've got items to counter it specifically, then they've got a choice

Cube October 1 2008 7:46 PM EDT

I'm actually okay with SG now; I think the 5% decrease was perfect.

Cube October 1 2008 7:47 PM EDT

Oops double post.

Of course the VB is still disproportionately bad.

Thanatos October 3 2008 10:27 AM EDT

How about things like

Blacksmiths

Hammer and Gloves
High AC and Small bonus to Forging with - to rewards to fighting

Blacks Smiths Apron instead of Breast Plate
Lower AC slightly higher percentage to Forging

Accounts Cap
Slightly better rates of Economic Clans

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 3 2008 10:52 AM EDT

for some reason forging items haven't ever gained a toe hold...

Maybe we need to rethink what they'd do...

How about an item with decent forgeability that has no other purpose but to xfer NW to another item?

Colonel Custard October 3 2008 11:00 AM EDT

Whoa dude. Then forgers could just hammer away at that all the time in between jobs, and be able to uberboost when they get one!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] October 3 2008 11:03 AM EDT

I think you'd have to restrict the use of the Anvil item to folks in econ clans... and maybe add another limitation to balance it out.

An Anvil of the Earth Born lvl 2,370,456

Ok? That is a pointless reply really, where is the exp sink then? Can forgers get some since you guys get the best of both worlds, money and exp?
