    Default New named augment: Gift of the Master (Upgrade of the Voice + Mantle)

    - A new named Augment called the Gift of the Master can now be created at the Altar of Epic Rituals near The Twelve by combining the Voice of the Master, Mantle of the Worldshaper, and five Greater Tokens of the Twelve. This item can be placed into any Colorless Augment Slot and provides a +5% Enhancement Bonus to all earned Experience Points. Using this augment on an item will permanently make the item Bound to Character.

    For those who haven't seen it yet. It's pretty cool imho. What's its ML thou?

    Doubtful.

    Looks like you can take the 5% and put it on any item, freeing up your trinket slot. Then use a jeweler's to get it back out and move it to another slot when you outgrow the old item.

    I'm betting ML 5, since that's what the voice/mantle are.

    Meh, I'm throwing away 5 charges of absorption so I don't have to remember to put my "voices on" when 99% of the time in good groups someone says "voices" and I'm already in the habit anyway even if they didn't?

    That's a pretty expensive opportunity cost for laziness IMO... Now if the augment also gave you those 5 charges.

    Maybe I'm the only one but when I'm running stuff with heavy neg leveling mobs I really enjoy having a Silver flame Talisman, Mantle and a Jeweled cloak. Even if just to swap in once the other gets used up.

    Well you lose the charges but gain whatever you want to put in the slot instead?

    Plus, nothing to stop you from getting ANOTHER Mantle, if you just want it to swap in for the absorb..? The augment doesnt exclude the item

    Personally I slotted it into my jeweled cloak, making a nice upgrade from the mantle. No fuss, no muss

    Is it the same type of bonus from mantle and/or voice? or is it different making the 2 5% stack

    Edit: Nevermind got my answer from using the new and improved dev tracker and saw cordovan state they dont stack and are just like that to free up different slots.

    It's still there. Shhh.

    You just need to re-acquire the items that you sacrificed to gain the option to transfer your 5% XP bonus to another item.
    Or you need to be able to UMD True Seeing scrolls to work around the issue.

    Or if you are perfectly happy with your gear options at the moment, then you can completely ignore all of this change that will not affect you in the slightest.

    it only frees up a slot if you wear voice through an entire quest, which you only do because you screwed up and forgot to put your good trinket back on. Or you haven't yet got anything good. In which case the last thing you want to do is delete your Mantle.

    Seriously this thing is a solution with no problem. Worse yet it's going to cost you a jewelers tool kit when you inevitably upgrade whatever item you put it in.

    Give it true seeing or 5 charges and I love it, leave it as is and it's the definition of meh turning two useful items into one less useful item that in the near future will probably need an expensive item to remove because you upgraded.

    Fully entitled to your opinion, of course, however there's many of us who completely disagree; and why bother with a jewelers kit? You (or at least I) can re-earn the ingredients faster than I could grind up the TP. Use those for pulling Vitallity augments from Minos helms

    Or you remember that keeping the voice equipped 24/7 give you extra XP from optionals, explorer, rares, and slayers. While people almost always remember to inform the others about equipping voice at the end of the quest, they don't do it on optionals. Run a VoN 3 or Shadow Crypt with voice on all the time, and another switching up only at the end. Check how much XP you are losing.

    This is a total bs reply to what was previously posted.

    Are you somehow missing the point that this is an option that you can use or not use as you see fit?



    You can slot this into any ML1 colourless augment slot. So if you really think about it ... maybe you can get this into an item before ML 5 ??? Maybe worth thinking about. It might even end up like some of those Crystal Cove or House C items that you have multiple versions at different levels ... if that is what YOU so choose.

    But at the end of the day, if you don't like the option this offers then just ignore it and quest on?

    I view this as a third crafted item for leveling: guild hp, guild sp, xp bonus. I'll find a slot that will be crafted <whatever> on a character from 1 to 20 and use a coloreless augment blank. That way I get 5% xp 24/7 and only lose 2 levels on the crafted gear's power, but it will scale as I level.

    A second "final location" epic item isn't too much; two mantles, two voices and 10 raid tokens? Done and done.

    I will. Most people will. But the disappointment that it's an almost good option lingers. If we have to farm two items, burn them both, and spend raid tokens for this thing, is it really too OP to keep the other bonuses? Is it really?

    Hmmm....

    Would it be op to have a no min level colorless augment that gives all of the following:
    5% xp boost
    +1 Luck
    5 charges spell absorption
    Regeneration - 1 HP/min
    True Seeing

    Survey says... YES!... yes it would.
