Anything that is power 1 Wizardry 1 or deception it is just added on to move up the level and value of the item ie. +2 flaming longbow of power 1.

Anyone else almost die on the floor laughing when that skeleton in the pre-raid taunts you with his "Paralyzing Sword of Power 1"??? LOL! At least the mobs are getting crappy addons to their loot too!

I didn't see that one, too funny :p I did think it was also funny when he whipped out his cursespewing bastard sword of greater dwarf bane when there were no dwarfs in the party :p "Oh nooooo!" :p

Those things actually work pretty well on monsters that are summoned by other monsters.

I was nitpicking the Devs.... "I got a good deal for it, you know" makes no gramatical sense at all..... But alas.... Thats what he says.....

Meh, if all we got was good loot, we'd be geared out and have no reason for loot runs and stuff.

They use a random table just like you would use in a real PnP game. The more options there are the more different combinations.

I'm usually pretty "up" on my grammar (despite my absolute refusal to include punctuation inside quotation marks... it just looks wrong that way, dammit), but you've lost me here.

Is it the comma? I'm always torn on that... mostly because that's how people really speak, correct or not. (hah)

Edit: wait, wait... is it the word "for" where "on" should be?

It may have been intentional. The difference between grammar and regional dialect can be vast.

I Got a good deal on it, you know

or even

I got it for a good deal, ya know

Would of been more correct.

I got a good deal for it sounds more like he sold it.

You have no idea. My first time running that was in an all wf party. So the power 1 was actually the most useful enhancement on it.

Maybe it's because I'm a quebecker... but I find it sounds alright like it is...

Maybe it's because I'm a quebecker... but I find it sounds alright like it is...It gets the point across but saying you got a good deal "for" something (instead of "on" something) makes it sound like you sold it (instead of bought it).

Not sure what the official correct grammar is there. Is it grammatically correct to get a deal "on" something? Or is that just a form of slang we use that has become overwhelmingly common?
