    Default Best slot for GS


    Is there any specific slot useful for GS over other items nowadays?

    Last GS i made was a year or two ago and was in the goggles slot, from reading up a little its not the preferred slot anymore?

    I'd like it to be a long term use item which means it would have to be better than any of the higher level loot (unlikely nowadays?)

    Any currently recognized "best slots" for long term use GS? either conc-op or mana+ or is it all junk now?

    At you. Not 'with you'.


    after all changes & additions @ gear, ive constructed & reconstructed too many to b embarrassed to relay. :/
    -will say that the two slots i use now without missing much is belt and bracers. good through 24. will depend on build/class etc tho.

    if you plan on getting epic gear and any new gear that gets released, than your GS item will always change. there really is no best slot for GS because of that and because of your class, build and what would be a good boost in a certain area. your gear is going to forever change if you always want to improve what you have so its best to go with what you need now, but be prepared to craft a new one down the road when something better comes along to take up that slot. all of my characters have had to go through at least 3 different GS items.
    Gary Gygax quotes

    The essence of a role-playing game is that it is a group, cooperative experience.

    There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you are involved in, whether its a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agents or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.

    Role-playing isn't storytelling. If the dungeon master is directing it, its not a game.

    When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, than many online and computer run RPGs will move toward actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of "being there" anymore than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.

    The secret we should never let the game masters know is that they don't need any rules.

    Default ugh

    Lets hear it for shroud runs...

    Ok, I'll just throw some things together for next life use until hitting epics again.

    Thank for the input all!
