I'm looking to go back and uptweak clan items that are not "worth the slot", so to speak. (There is a careful and delicate balance on the clan items, so I'm asking for a playerbase input here.)


If you can name any items in your particular clan that seem particularly poor for their level, please do so and I'll look over it in my attempt to do clan items instead of creatures/item drops.

Maulhammer (well we picked it actually, but it's plenty useless)

Golden morningstar

Adamantine mace

Flanged Zweihander

Greatsword (3 speed?!?)

Basically anything with speed 5 or less turns out hard to justify in the long run, even the chains these days are usually left on the shelf, though they're better than the above.

Well, the chains being left on the shelf makes a lot of sense, they used to be used frequently, but they are a level 4 item.

For ranged... well, basically the guns. We were considering the Thunder-Shake Arquebus for a while before the Quake Boots came out just to have a sonic weapon (because the Screaming Iron Mask had been hopelessly outdated, actually, those probably need a boost too, considering it seems to actually be worse than Item Clan Flametongues, which I believe are actually lower level) but we decided that they were only very incrementally better than the basic cannons, and don't have the stopping power of the Mortar Cannon, at the same speed.

Yeah, our crossbows were good for their level but are totally made obsolete by the repeater tubes - as expected, since those were, what, ten levels higher? That's what erasing old researches is for >.>

I actually kinda meant the new winter and hellfire chains. They're not terrible, but considering they were our level 12 and 13 items they are way less useful than the bronze dagger and brass knuckles, and only a little more useful than the original chain.
But the Greatsword is quite probably the worst (think it was our level 11 option, and my not be as bad as I think, but we're scared to waste a slot on a speed 3 weapon. It looked more interesting when it was initially mistakenly tagged as a level 0 option). It's hard to know just how bad (or good) something is since energy use can have such a big effect, but is completely invisible before testing.

Since we seem to be in a spirit of public disclosure, the L12 Amethyst Armour is lacking. It provides less physical protection than the L10 Adamantine Armour and while has some elemental advantages, it is 2 slots. So I can get much better protection by simply layering two of the Addy Armours with only a very minor weight penalty (5 lbs).

On an earlier note, I'm not sure the level 1 copper specialty armours are worth it. I mean you need 3 seperate Primary slots just to armour a golem. Easier by far to use the Copper banding everyone can make.

I'll post more as they come to me...

all i can suggest is Gilded Tower Shield and the Iron Club both of which are over shadowed by items that require just a little more.not much more to make it not worth investing in

...the Iron Club is a freebie general item. I should HOPE it's overshadowed by even the most basic specialized item.

This is true, but the iron club is actually overshadowed quite a lot by the iron sword which is also a freebie general item, so it is pretty useless.

I actually disagree about the Gilded Tower Shield. While we didn't choose it, I think it is useful, especially at its level. We might have chosen it if we hadn't already had the Brass lined shield, which it is superior to.

Of course there are better Shields out there, all the higher level items are supposed to be better than the lower level ones.

no what i mean is this example you can pay 100 for item A which deals 10 and get it sooner OR pay 120 for item B which deals 20 and get it 10 minutes later than the first one.like the club and the shield.

I think what he's saying it that for a lot of items, there are upgrades that cost very little more material required to make it but have a huge increase in effectiveness.

But they usually take at least one library level and a research slot to obtain. So you've got the lower one until you replace it with something more powerful. It's not like you have access to everything at once.

Looks like some new melee weapons went live. Melee up to level 8 has some new stuff.

Thanks, Atropos!

Lest I be given credit for something I did not do, the most recent batch of weapons is someone else's work.

My first things will be for spell clans.

We got 5 new options at OASIS, all of them at least mildly interesting, one has an Area of Effect. Not sure what it means in game terms, but I'm intrigued.

AoE is something some ranged weapons have had, specifically flametongues, iron masks, and quake boots. We were told at some point that they ignore terrain penalties, which is noticable in the forest. They also may or may not ignore rain, we were unable to confirm or deny.

The Whip weapon right? To my understanding, the AoE tag does nothing when applied to a weapon, so I'm not sure why It's still on it.
