I really want to see single weapon fighting melee builds gain relevancy, please consider making it happen!

Cormyrian Orbs: You can now get Orbs from the Challenge Venders in Eveningstar (Includes Honing Stones as a separate option)

Greensteel Orbs: You can now craft Greensteel Orbs

Legendary Greensteel Orbs: You can now craft Legendary Greensteel Orbs

Cannith Orb Crafting Option: You can now craft Orbs In Cannith Crafting

New Kind Of Orb for Single Weapon Fighting builds called a Honing Stone: Honing Stones imbue your main hand weapon to deal extra damage or inflict debilitating effects on the enemy or provide defensive/healing proc effects, since Honing Stones also count as Orbs, they may also contain effects such as Devotion.

Random Generated Orbs: Randomly generated Orbs can now drop in chests, this includes Honing Stones!

Further more, improve the Bard's benefits gained from swashbuckling with an orb!

I don't know about all of that... but I would like to see random generated orbs, and Cannith craftable orbs, as well as some generic orbs in the store that are craftable with augment slot.

Oh and add some more unique orb appearances and orb cosmetics to the store:

These are pretty well done, can you make an "Orb" cosmetic that makes your arm look like Chidori from Naruto? I think that would be pretty cool!

I'm always a fan of giving orbs a little love (we really need cannith crafting for orbs); the swashbuckling with orbs enhancement needs a buff and Aelonwy's cosmetic orbs always make me smile.

1d20 ORB, plz and thank you.

The D20 orb should be an event item.... something new, even the anniversary event feels wrong for such.........

I'd say anniversary event Raid you are allowed to run once a day....... or something equivalent.

I say this because it is just that epic.... I would not want everyone to have one, I'd want it to be rare enough to keep inspiring admiration!

Cosmetic ofbs would be great. A few could be added to the remnant vendor and make some like the d20 orb only available under a special circumstance like the anniversary event, etc. a pumpkin one for night revels would be awesome. Since we can craft almost everything including trinkets i do think the addition of orbs to cannith crafting and greensteel would be beneficial to many build types and multiclasses. Adding orbs as challenge rewards should be relatively easy. The honing orbs mentioned above would be a nice addition to both melee or caster builds. Orb blanks could be obtained as a very rare drop in new quests, from remnant vendor and in the ddo store. Since we can craft on shoields and off hand weapons it only makes sense that orbs should be craftable (even the rune arms can be crafted upon). I do not see in any way how the addition of orb crafting would disrupt game balance and it would add to game enjoyment by orb users.

Ideally, legendary greensteel orbs should have a combination of the stats from legendary greensteel weapons and legendary greensteel equipment but restricting you from being able to enchant the greensteel orb with any of the damage proc effects aside from guards, triple healing amplification with legendary affirmation would be possible but effects like good burst would not be.... this is of course my opinion and I would welcome and appreciate a refutation if one can be made.

I'm all for an orb update. However, I don't think a new item type should be made for Single Weapon Fighters. I'd love to see a melee-focused orb, and perhaps it could be called "Honing Stone", but I feel like Single Weapon Fighting people using orbs is uncommon enough that there doesn't need to be a new item type. Unless you mean the Honing Stone is just sort of a sub-type of orb and still called and considered an orb, in which case I'm 100% on board!

I am currently in agreement with you there actually........ it was brought up that trinkets, rings, and necklaces could simply be allowed to be grasped in the offhand in the place of an orb, this would actually make a single weapon fighting monk build where no empty slot is present and balance is retained.

Also, yeah... that's actually what I was meaning for a honing stone to be, just a sub-type of orb.
