    Are there plans to add more illusion spells to the game? Because right now there are only 7 and only two of those might benefit from DC bonuses....

    I was thinking the same thing exactly. It may fit with the theme of the locale, but it's pretty useless for PCs.

    Not seeing much in any of the loot to even get interested in, let alone excited to go farm. The scaling of stats, wizardry etc is the only really nice thing I've seen.

    That's pretty much my thoughts as well. None of the named loot screams out gotta have it! The cloaks look like an ok swap in item if I know I'll be taking a lot of that type of damage. It looks like I'll have better luck looking for the right combinations of effects on the new random loot.

    I must be channeling your thoughts this afternoon... I was just thinking to myself a minute ago, that a shot at +4 to 5 tomes and lootgen +10 stat items was more interesting than the loot we are seeing so far. By far the most interesting loot screen shot for me was the Int +11 Wizardry X lootgen goggles.

    Sad, but true.

    I'm assuming that there are no such thing as equivalent Gloves of the Master Enchanter... If there are other equivalents, I'd revise my opinion on that item and it would become a need to have on a couple of toons. If there were Wis and Cha equivalents, it would be on a lot more toons.

    Honestly, the EN normal stuff is a little bit to potent. Right now you can only find +3 DC breaking stuff on level 25 random loot and on some level 20+ epic stuff. Plus you don't see +7 and +8 ability items until after 20.

    I so wish we didn't mess with that since it would simply create another standard of items higher then what we have no as some kind of watermark for those levels.

    +8 items at level 19? It's a lil' but to much.

    Can we please stop with the random effects?
    It's definitely an N-word.

    Why would the Gloves need a Wis equivalent? There are no Divine based Illusion spells.

    As for Cha, I can sort of agree since Bards have Hypnotic Pattern (which is almost strictly a spell used for soloing since groups hate it). Sorcs also have Hypnotic Pattern and Phantasmal Killer, but are there any Sorcs that actually use these spells?

    Illusion focus?

    Turbine should do a search and see how many people have +2 dc to illusion spells through crafting or augments that isn't a +2 to all spell DCs and see how many turn up.

    Illusion spells:

    Blur, Displacement, Hypno Pattern, PK, Invis, Shadow Walk

    Since 4 are buffs that leaves PK/Hypno - Not end-game friendly spells. One is a double save spell (try landing it in eeGH) and the other is a group-hating weak CC spell.

    No DC class will slot feats for illusion either, since conj/enchant offer more effective spells.

    Thanks Squeak. Needs to have another spell focus V on it though, if it was Illusion and Enchantment (I think they go well together), it would be great for CC casters.

    If they had enchantment and charisma, my bard would kill for them.

    That would actually make sense as named loot... so of course, expect only to find it in random loot.

    I had a little bit sarcasm. I admit it.

    Nice gloves, the heroics are way overpowered.

    Btw, these gloves are the first nice items I see so far.

    (Ok, a set of all 4 cloaks to cover all elemental absorptions would not be that bad either.)

    One, two! One, two! and through and through. The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head. He went galumphing back.

    How are the gloves nice? Seriously the int bonus is nice but you can get that on random gen just not usually on gloves. The dc bonus is garbage as no one uses illusion in ddo. Illusion can be nice in pnp but there is no point to it in ddo other than a few buff spells not as a dc spell.

    The WIS and CHA would be nice was in conjunction with the comment that they are attractive if there are other focus versions, necro, conjuration, evocation...

    If the only version is intell and illusion focus then its worse than lootgen.

    If there were other focus versions (and let's face it, pretty much any other focus would be btter than Illusion, especially for the end game) and any stat for casters that use the focus were on the gloves, it would at least be viable. However, since Squeak only posted several gloves of pretty much the same thing, I think it's safe to say that there will be no other types of focus on gloves. You just have to look at other gear posted by Squeak (for example, the cloaks in this thread) to see that the same item with a different non-random effect were posted in the various threads.

    Maybe Phantasmal killer and Hypnotic Killer will be used more again.

    It also gives me hope for spells like Weird, Nightmare, Color Spray and of course the illusive Mirror Image (pun intended).
    Maybe even Greater Shadow, who knows?
