Supporter Items

Supporter items are given to new supporters to give them an edge as they grow their characters. When the Supporter item changes, Jon will sell the new one to current supporters for $6 sent to his Paypal account. Supporters are allowed to purchase one item every time the supporter item changes.

These are all of the past and present Supporter Items. These were not available in stores and will never spawn. There are two ways to acquire them: either buy from another player, or buy it directly from Jon through the Special Items menu under Business at the cost of $11 per item.

Supportership Item Trivia

In CB1, supporter items were initially meant for newer characters. The idea was that the usefulness of the item would reduce over time, somewhere around the ad hoc value of 400k MPR. This gradually changed without much fanfare, and Jonathan mentioned in a forum post [Ed. can't find the post right now] that he changed the mentality behind supporter items to give supporters a more worthwhile, long lasting investment. Certainly by the time the Mage Shield was introduced this was an established tradition; in its original form, the MgS reduced magical damage by 2000 points per enchantment level. Jonathan changed it to .75% per level to make it more useful at higher levels.

Currently, the JKF fits the original profile of phasing out as the character grows (though some have found ways to use them at higher levels.) The second item is almost a requirement for any team with any intention of creating a 'Mage Wall'. The fifth item is the only one in the game capable of regenerating HP during the actual battle, and the sixth item has found uses all across the board in some very cross-generational strategy creations. The third item is a BoNE of contention for many, and is a volatile topic due to a massive recent nerfing of its base damage from 75 down to the 51, and then back up to its current damage of 63. The eighth is considered all but necessary for any team with a focus on ranged combat and for all Mages (including CoC and Decay), and the fourth, the Rune of Enlightenment, was the first Supporter item in CB2 to have been reintroduced, though it was soon followed by the Helm of Clearsight when the price of these became astronomical due to utility and rarity.
