I like the rum!
better then the planar trade in clickies as they are one time use.
can we hold multiple rum?
EDIT = Yes u can
like a six pack? barbarian gets thirsty while adventuring!
EDIT : All rums on same timer bummer.
I think thats fine if same level to share timer.
However different level rum should be on diffrent timers?
that would be a nice feature.
so u cant have 2 of same level. but if we can use multiple if different tiers so it wouldnt be too powerful that way ...but somewhat useful.
I would proably hold the top 3 if each level was a diffrent timer...maybe top 4 on barb for emergencies.
May i drink them raged?

If either the mats all were BTA or the Rum becomes BoE then there would be no issue and this would be a great item.
All coves mats have always been BTA. Has this changed?
Then this really isn't a problem. Oh unless of course you just want to craft 10 - 20 of them and pass them around in your shared bank.
In a way, you would think it would be overpowered, but how is it different than a 1/2 Elf Barbarian with Clr Dilly and 100 of each heal and Restoration Scrolls?
Its a tough call...

so other than the rum, i have no reason to run Cove again this year. ah well. maybe next year.
And in general Impulse is more useful to an Artificer than Combustion would be (all force spells and Blade Barrier)
After all they are not bought with TP and may get damaged. The BtA nature of most Crystal Cove items made them interesting, especially for players with several characters or TRs ... but this and a tier 3 upgrade that is actually less worth then Tier 2 ... then I am better of with Silver Flame pots.
edit: uhm, my bad to not read all forum posts, seems the effect being [url=http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?&postid=4862584#post4862584removed[/url] on the runearm is only a display error of the barter window. Still not that much impressed...

* We have collectable bags, hell even hireling folders, but can I have that 6-pack for my potions please?
* Having already a past life on the dieng EU servers, I rerolled here and started from scratch as I like the game and the community, so lets see what awaits me here
Re: the runearm
I'd have to check strinati's which I haven't used in a while, but I'm pretty sure that explosive cannonshot only has two damage hits (one for the bludgeon, one for the force) compared to 4 for Tovens and 5 for Archaic/Lucid/Corruption/Obscenity
This would make the damage decidedly lower than the other runearms vs. single target, but conversely the AoE is much better defined than Tovens so might be useful against a bunch of mobs.
Also, it doesn't mention a save in the description (neither does Strinati's). I think I'm going to test Strinatis a bit to see if it looks like it does have a save or not; if not, then the glass cannon might be the perfect antidote to crowds of evasive mobs like spiders.
Is it confirmed that you need both fire and force to amplify damage on the runearm? A lot of (all?) mixed element spells like prismatic, tac det, meteor swarm etc apply the highest spellpower/crit chance/crit damage afaik, and it'd be nice if you got a similar benefit with this runearm.
Finally, whilst people are knocking fire as an element, in truth end-game arti spells are actually force/fire - tac det and prismatic are both boosted by fire lines, so this runearm is perhaps more synergistic than even Tovens.
Ever since Strinati's Hand Cannon was introduced in Three-Barrel Cove, I've been hoping for an end-game rune-arm with explosive cannon shot. It's a neat way to allow artificers to have greater flexibility in rune-arm options without running into the constant problem of "why should I put action points into any other damage type when force is so clearly the best option?"
And it even lets an artificer FINALLY have a 120 impulse item to boot.
Plus it's got a geeky pun name.
See, you put a smiley on there as a kind of encouragement, but you have no idea how depressing this kind of news is.Don't run the numbers just yet, the scoring system for the Cove has been adjusted.
Given the state of the Cannith and Eveningstar challenges, why should we think that the new and "improved" CC is going to do anything but distill the worst elements of those and combine them into one giant horrorshow?
Maybe lock some of the tunnels behind doors that you need randomly dropped seals to open!
Make a star objective be to protect the new "kobold warriors" who while just as flimsy as the workers, instead of running away from monsters, will actively seek them out and fight them.
Replace a third of the hobgoblins with yugoloth wizards!
Lose a star if you buy more than 5 torches!
Purple crystals occasionally replaced with mimics that go after kobolds who try to harvest them!
And I would not be the tiniest bit surprised to find that a 6-star completion with preposterous requirements only gives another 100-200 crystals over the old style, rather than the 800 it probably should give, with the preposterous requirements.

Is it because you think fire's not good at end-game? That was true when cap was 20, and end game was Shavarath, clockwork Shrouds, and Cannith. Now that end game is is spiders that web, drow, giants, and every-color-but-Red dragons... Fire's not such a bad choice.
I've only seen pictured ML 24 rune arms, I hope they have lower level versions too...
Second, the AOE and reflex saves. The reason why Toven's Hammer - excellent rune arm btw - is not as good in the end game as it is at the level you can equip it, is because of reflex saves. That doubles or even quadruples for Animus. Strictly because Animus hit you once with 1 fireball type AOE. If you save, no damage (very likely and especially if you're only level 20-22 doing ML 23+ quests on anything but normal). With Toven's and everything else you at least have more then one chance to score a damaging hit. Toven is what, 4 shots, acid and force 5 etc. So even if something gets reflex saved you still have a few more shots to get your crit in.
And yes; Banishing on Animus is a waste. It would be a lot better with something like Disruption (kind of like an upgraded version of the Hand of Tombs). That's why I thought this might be a bad idea - if it has a reflex save you have that one chance to get your hit in. Most of the item you'll get reflex saved and do little damage and some times you don't do any damage whatsoever. That's why I prefer Acid and force. But if it is indeed boosting both fire and bludgeoning with impulse because it's a dual damage type, then I don't need to worry about adding some enhancement points to fire - I can still use max force to use this as a third rune arm in the case I want to do some critter cleaning. I'm making one for sure, so I'm going to take my time to check how well that plays out.
