    Post Community Item List

    This thread presents a location for items the community would like to see added to DDO. I will update as often as I can. I work from 2 to 10pm Mountain time. I am aiming for a sticky on this thread. Check out my other thread, The Community Spell List, here: Check out my other thread, The Community Item List, here: http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=146548 if you want to post some spell ideas.
    Special Thx to Kistilan for the idea to put thread here and make it useful to developers with balancing.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A) Posting Item Rules. These will help keep the post organized and up to speed:
    1. Post your comments on as many items as you can before you post your ideas.
    2. New May 28: Light system removed.
      1) Posting items. Each person may have up to 3 (This may decrese if many ppl start joining thread) items at once in the unbalanced list. If you post an item and you already have 5 items in the unbalanced list, then it will not be added to the templates, nobody should comment on it since it isnt in the balance comments template, and I will ask you to edit it out (You can do this without deleting if you dont want to copy paste by editing it and highlighting it in the same color as the text).
    3. Keep your items within the LV 1 - 20 powerlevel.
    4. Do NOT use attributes or other specials people have created in this post unless you ask their permission in a private message and then give them credit in your item post.
    5. Do NOT reply to any posts that are inflammatory, negative, or do not contribute to the item idea thread in any way.
    6. Do NOT edit ur own items once you post them unless it is to fix spelling, punctuation, or such. This is because you might be editing while someone else is posting a quote that wont make sense if you edit. IF you want to propose a change for your item, then do it with a post reply and underline the changes.
    7. Do NOT post items that exist in DDO or pen and paper already. The developers can find these easy enough if they want. Lets aim for original material.
    8. Please copy and paste this item template*:
    Item Name:
    Item Type:
    Found in:
    Min LV:
    Changed Basic Values:
    DDO Attributes:
    New Attributes:
    Other specials:
    Clicky(s):
    Flavor: " ."
    Author:

    *Item Template Explained:
    Item Name: Name your item here. Try to incorporate something in the name into what it does.
    Item Type: List the plus factor after the type if available, ex Longsword +2. The types of items are as follows: Trinket, Gloves, Boots/Greaves, Belt, Helm/Hat/Circlet/Cowl/Crown/Band/Cap, Necklace, Cloak/Cape/Hide/Mantle, Weapon (Say which, ex. Rapier), Armor (Say which, ex. Full Plate), Ring
    Found in: This is where the item can be looted.
    Min LV: This is the minimum level required to use the item.
    Changed Basic Values: This is to list increased base damage, better crit multiplyers, and so forth.
    DDO Attributes: This is to list of attributes in DDO already. Ex. Holy, Mithral, Good.
    New Attributes: This is where you list your new attributes. Use a italics designation word then a - and what it does. Ex from the Metamagic Band = Metamagic Reflexes - For each metamagic feat you have active, you gain 1 dodge bonus to AC.
    Other specials: This is where you list anything else the item does that cannot be put in any other category.
    Clicky(s): This is where you list spells the item can cast per rest. Be sure to include the caster level and number of uses per rest. Ex. LV 5 Haste 3x.
    Flavor: " ." This is where you list any flavor for the item like history or looks or whatnot in italics. You can attribute the flavor to a source if you like. Ex. "The wielder of this sword will have nightmares until every undead creature within 10000 miles is destroyed. It is ironic that it is a task only an undead could complete." - The Book of Lost Artifacts, Chapter 17 Swords
    Author: This is where you put your forum name. This makes it less work for me to copy paste the item right to the balance list when it is done.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    B) Community Balancing. We as a community will need to balance each item posted. Please keep in mind the following for posting comments:
    1. Does this item exist already in the game and hence the item is redundant
    2. Does the item make sense? (ex: A vorpal longbow with slicing blow or a Holy Bastard Sword only usable by non-good would not make sense.)
    3. Is the item overpowered? If so, then why?
    4. Is the item underpowered? If so, then why?
    5. Is the MIN LV the author posted about right? IF not, then what is the min LV that should be required on this item?
    6. Is the found in chest LV about right? If not, then what level of chest would one find this item? Should this item be raid loot? Crafted only?
    7. Your other thoughts on the item. Did you like the item idea? Dislike? If disliked, can it be fixed? Should item should be scrapped?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    C) The Final Balanced Community Item List.
    1. Items now have balance scores kept track by me. Each verdict* vote changes the balance score as follows: Balanced +0, Overpowered +1, and Underpowered: -1. An incomplete verdict is special. One incomplete verdict will not prevent an item from being put on the balance list but more than 1 will. You will need to repost and clarify your original if your item has more than one incomplete verdict. If you give someone an incomplete verdict, then make sure to explain why.
    2. Note that each occurance of 1 underpowered verdict and 1 overpowered verdict = 1 balanced verdict.
    3. Balance score needed to be considered for the final list scales as follows: -1,0, or +1 with at least 4 balanced verdicts, -2,0, or +2 with at least 8 balanced verdicts, -3,0, or +3 with at least 12 balanced verdicts, ect according to pattern. This system allows items that have many underpowered or overpowered verdicts but an overwhelming number of balanced verdicts to get it or even an item with 4 overpowered and 4 underpowered verdicts.
    4. Once an item reaches the required balance score, It will get a each day with required to get in. This period of time is a chance for everyone to make a verdict if they have not, review their verdict, or provide some extra comment.
    5. I am not the be all and end all in the balance field. My verdict only counts as 1 just like yours.
    *Verdict terms explained:
    Balanced: Everything is working here. Min LV, found in and the item's powerlevel are all balanced.
    Overpowered: An item can be overpowered for several reasons. Reasons I can think of are as follows:
    1) The item is usable too soon (Min LV is too low).
    2) The item is too powerful and needs toning down
    3) The item is too easily obtained for its powerlevel. (An item that could be fixed if it was harder to get in the found in category.)
    Underpowered: An item can be underpowered for several reasons. Reasons I can think of are as follows:
    1) The item is usable too late (Min LV is too high).
    2) The item is too weak and needs a boost.
    3) The item is too hard to obtain for its powerlevel. (An item that could be fixed if it was easier to get in the found in category.)
    Incomplete: The item is not clear or has missing information. Missing caster level on spells or missing numbers for DCs for example.
    NEW MAY 28: Be sure to explain why you gave an incomplete verdict and are you sure overpowered or underpowered is not better?

    Flavor: -
    Venar says about his item: "Always annoyed me that casters in DDO dual wield silly weapons. I want wizards with staves! This would allows to transform 2 scepters into 1 staff. The vicious and lost of attack bonus is to avoid that people build insane melee staves. The concentration is there to make the staff better then the 2 scepters, since it loses swaping versatility."

He was latered contracted by some very nefarious organizations to create more of these cloaks for their spies and assasins. A group of Paladins learned of this and sacked the mages tower and killed Telendor and his son but not before several of these cloaks had been created and delivered."

    Item Name: Fighter's Handbook
    Item Type: Trinket
    Found in: Any chest that would produced treasure of the ML required; very very rare drop
    Min LV: 14
    Changed Basic Values: -
    DDO Attributes: Seeker +6; special
    New Attributes: -
    Other specials: This book is only usuable by full BAB classes; besides the permanent seeker effect, each book has a random assortment of fighter class feats inscribed into it ie cleave, improved trip, improved twf etc. While equipped into the trinket slot the possesor of this book may select one of the inscribed feats and have them active just as if they learned the feats during level up. Only one such feat may be active at a time and when another is selected they loose the use of the previous feat until it is reslected. The magical nature by which this books grants the use of a feat you do not know does not allow you to activate a feat and then qualify for another more advanced version during level up. This is because your knowledge of said feat is magical and not inherent and if the book were every destroyed while in your possession or you chose another feat from the books lists you would loose all knowledge and ability to use the previously selected feat. (I apologize for missing this update earlier Raven - Yag.)
    Clicky(s): -
    Flavor: " These books were written in ages past and have within them the near accumulated knowledge of a long dead warrior race. While each book may vary on the tatics inscribed within them they all had detailed knowledge of the vital areas of nearly every creature in the known planes thus allowing their fighters to easily score critical hits. Since their creation they have passed through many hands. Some of the most noblest Paladins, bravest barbarians, ruthless tyrants, and mass murderers in history of be said to have had one of theses books in their possesion. It is not sure whether the magic of allowing one to learn and use a feat while holding this book was imbued at creation or if the combined years of exposure to the magic and might of the greatest warriors, for good or evil, caused this effect but it is undisputed that it is there.."

    Item Name: Soulsinger (Attempt 6)
    Item Type: +3 Longsword
    Found in: Raidchests (Very Rare Random Drop)
    Min LV: 14, and 17 ranks in Perform
    Changed Basic Values: -
    DDO Attributes: Exclusive, you may be under the effect of only one Soulsinger at a time
    New Attributes:
    Harmonic Death - A natural 20 that is confirmed as a critical hit sets ups such an harmonic resosnance as to sever a creatures soul from its body essentially killing it. There is a fortitide save of a dc skill in perform/2 of the wielder of Soulsinger
    Astral Damage - Soulsinger amplies the hum of a master bard and sends the energy into a subsonic range that stretches into the astral plane effecting a creatures soul (any thing without a soul would be immune such as constructs and slimes). The harmonics are tuned to cause agony to creatures of evil. Thus each hit with Soulsinger does 2d8 astral damage. A critical hit by soulsinger deals perform skill/3 extra damage in addition to the 2d8 regular damage
    Other specials: Soulsinger harmonic properties when activated by a master bard are powerfull and unique. ML of 10 bard and 13 ranks in perform skill.
    Clicky(s): Touch of Soulsinger 1x/rest: The bard wielding Soulsinger may once per day use the harmonic properties to amplify one of their songs essentially doubleing its effect however, the power of Soulsinger is short lived and such a songs length is quartered.
    Flavor: " The great Bard Elindrel of the Marshes sung his lifeforce into this sword as he lay on his deathbed. So great was his hatred of evil that it was transfered to the sword with devestating effect. Only the greatest of his pupils could wield Soulsinger. An interesting property was discovered afters its creation. The bard wielding Soulsinger can use it to amplify the effect of his next song however the power of Soulsinger is shortlasting and these songs seems to be much shorter then usual."
