    Default Jan 15 FIVE FREE Icy Burst Kit Giveaway

    RULE CHANGE Give away ends on FRIDAY

    Turbine, not sure if this is legal. If you do not like, please delete the thread.

    I did this last July also -->> http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=332031

    Date: FRIDAY Jan 13, 2012
    Time: 3:00 PM EST No earlier as I have social obligations. I am shooting for 3 PM to 5 PM EST.
    WHO: Players online and players that post a picture or two pictures on the forums.
    What: FIVE FREE Icy BUrst Kits given away. A character cannot submit two items and get two kits, just one. Share the Wealth.

    For players physically logged into the game, from time to time, I will also give players online a chance to link their weapons in General Chat, Trade Chat, and Advice Chat.

    On Sunday I will offer FIVE ICY BURST KITS for free.

    I will mail all FIVE an icy burst kit. Do with it as you choose.


    The idea
    What I am looking for in your weapon, is a weapon that is worthy of being Icy Bursted.
    I am the only judge of the contest. if you are not happy about the outcome, it is all my fault.

    What I want to see are links to weapons. Or, in the case of the forums, Pictures of the weapon.

    This weapon is very worthy
    +4 KEEN Cold Iron Dwarven Axe of Pure Good race restricted DWARF for a level 6. The rarity of a weapon is a definite point of consideration.

    I also value weapons from 4th to 10th level more than the higher level weapons. Why? Most players will definitely use this weapon while they are leveling. Once you get to 14th and higher, you will be using Green Steel or stuff you have crafted or have some really cool weapon that you use ALL THE TIME. Still, I will consider a level 18 weapon, but I will probably value a level 6 weapon higher than a level 18 weapon.

    This weapon is cool, but won't be used as much
    +5 Metalline Dwarven Axe of Pure Good. It is usable by a level 14 that probably has a green steel weapon already.

    I also value weapons that have a higher CRIT range. After all, Icy Bursting is all about critical hits. So rapiers, scimitars, kukris, and great crossbows have crit ranges of 18-20 normally. I like that over a crit range weapon of 20.

    So, a keen +3 Silver Kukri of Disruption, while a silly weapon has a crit range of 15-20.

    A +4 KEEN Great Crossbow of Puncturing. Oh, I like that. Great Crossbows will get special consideration. Why? Nobody uses them, but I have a character that does!! If someone else out there is zany enough to choose a Great Crossbow, BONUS Points for you.


    I will accept TWO weapons per player to be submitted.

    The ultimate weapon would be this

    +3 KEEN (Race Restricted)(Minimum level 6)(Rapier, Scimitar, Kukri, Great Crossbow, some other weapon with crit range of 18-20) of (Puncturing, Enfeebling, BoneBreaking, Pure Good, Greater (XYZ) Bane) ( edit: possible change Possibly adding in LARGE GUILD SLOT)

    Last July's winner was a +1 Keen Falchion of Greater Human Bane for a level 4.


    Current Leader is Rinniatzu

    Five more tied for second
    Plunderdude
    Ukk
    Windemere (removed himself as his weapons are now icy bursted)
    Mad_leo
    Cicadoidea

    My two submissions as it is unlikely I'll farm anything better than this in 2 weeks.



    Not keen, not race restricted, not low level, but hey, they are pretty good I think, especially the axe for a 1st life dwarf.

    Mad props. Min level 2 and for a halfling non-the-less. Incredibly useful for a rogue. That's a definite winner for sure.

    Well, tbh, putting Icy Burst in a Cold Iron weapon isn't that good since Demons have 10 natural DR to cold... IMO, repeaters are amongst the best weapons to put Icy Burst, something like a Holy Burst Heavy Repeater of Pure Good. that said, good luck on the contest and props to the OP for the idea

    Hey there,

    I know that you are looking for items with low min level requirement.
    But I just pulled a "+5 Holy Burst Scimitar of Righteousness" (ML : 18) and I think icy burst on it would be shiny.
    I will post pic later.

    Not quite on that topic, the risian Altar stats that it replace a previously existing "cold touch , frost, or icy burst" by "festival icy burst". What does that mean ?

    Default My two entries

    First, I would like to say thank you for doing this contest. Very nice of you to do it.
    I would like to enter the below items for consideration.
    They are in my bank to be used by my lvl 5 Half-Elven Ranger when he gets a little more experienced.
    I plan on taking him the AA route pure to cap.
    He does use great crossbows and basties. I took the fighter dilettante for extra umph and more access to weapons.
    I realize the second entry is a little higher than you would like, but I plan on using it all the way. Just too nice of a great crossbow to sit down
    Thanks,
    Solanis

    Weapons that are bursted do not count. You can't add icy burst to a weapon already bursted. I have been saying that during the game so I have to stick to it.

    If you remove the icy burst, post the picture when it is removed(or just cold touched), then I will let you submit it. ;>)


    Green Steel Weapons - DQd
    Cannith Crafted Weapons - DQd
    Named Weapons - DQd

    If the Risia Altar refuses the weapon, the weapon is DQd.

    Kilnedric, that is a rare find. Your picture does prove one thing, the ML of the weapon is NOT being increased.

    No minimum level! 19-20 crit isn't too bad. And I love the idea of a Fire & Ice weapon, Flaming Burst and Icy Burst together. At level 1.
