    Default U39 Preview 1: Phiarlan Carnival Loot Revamp

    The Phiarlan Carnival adventure pack quests have had their loot revamped. This revamp is in the same vein as the recent Red Fens loot revamp in that it brings all items onto the modern standard of scaling effects. It will impact all future loot dropped from the quests but will not alter any items that players have already pulled from the Phiarlan Carnival pack before the update goes live.

    Note, some Phiarlan Carnival items do not appear on this list because they have not recieved a revamped version (because they didn't need one). If you don't see an item on this list it is because the item will remain the same when U39 goes live.

    Nice, love the boost to the weapons - AG is still adamantine, right? If so it looks like a nice item for its level, beating Carnifex for anyone without a massive STR and competive with CC against evil outsiders. Are the epic versions getting revamped in U39 as well?

    Some questions:
    Is the Antique Greataxe still Adamantine? I would much rather give up 4% melee alacrity on the weapon than it being adamantine.

    Can we please get a Blue Slot for this item? I mean I'd rather it had some benefit to Illusion Spell Focus than bonus will saves but I'll settle for a blue slot on an armor item.

    We lost Acid spell power on this item and frankly I would rather nix the Wizardry. This is a great item for a new druid player. Or it was before it lost the acid spellpower. Especially as you just changed some druid spells to use acid spell power.

    Otherwise, I think you did a great job with the item revamps for this pack.

    I second this, all of them could use a boost in epics. Including Kron'zek's Cruelty, (heroic is fine, and arguably it's the best epic item from the pack at the moment, but it could use a small face lift like the rest in epic.)

    Nice work, Thanks. There is some useful low level stuff there. I like some of the effects are unique for the slot.

    Default Not sure why level 4 gear was a priority....

    Really wish that low/mid epic packs were looked at over a level 4 chain, but it looks ok for the couple of hours/life I will use it. The gear looks decent for the level just wish it had more useful life time then 3 to 4 of the fastest levels in the game.

    You seriously just changed existing properties to bugged out ones that don't work and nerfed the only item I use?

    Man this sucks. Well I can probably get a random drop rings to switch out as needed for the spell casting, and other items were not that useful anyways.

    Would be great if you could increase the chance for Kronzek to spawn. That guy is a ghost- in 9 years of playing hes only spawned 3 or 4 times for me. Fine, don't upgrade his scimmie- but please provide a better chance for it to drop.

    The current version of the dagger has the old deception effect and that is useful.

    Please make sure the 'new and improved' version of this weapon and the epic version if you do those too retain the old style deception procs.

    There's no point doing these updates if you remove what was good about the items. That is a step backwards.

    Thanks.

    I know right? The first Kronzeck's Cruelty I ever got I passed. Then I didn't see another one for 6 years because the rare himself is almost never there. Oh BTW I checked out the items on Lamma, the Brimstone verge did not loose combustion, it gained fire lore... its just not in the notes for some reason.

    The Big Top
    could use another enchantment
    description mentions understanding of magical things
    Add +6 Spellcraft

    Illusionist's Garb
    Illusion Focus +2 OR Illusory Death +1

    Shimmering Pendant
    maybe add False Life clicky, 5/rest
    goes well with the confidence thing

    Brawn's Spirits
    maybe add Deadly 3, unless it's meant to be a swap item only. in that case there's no need to change it.

    So the old Deception proc (5% chance on hit: Your target becomes bluffed for 4 seconds) has been removed. This makes it worse for my rogue for doing racial past lives as it gives an extra chance to apply sneak attacks outside of Bluff skill, Shiv and Feint. Ive made my current one into epic for improved deception so I guess I will have to farm the old one before this get updated.

    What about the epic versions? Will the S/S/S system remain in place?

    Antique Great Axe- why completely change the effects? isn't impactful a bludgeoning effect? I hate effects that don't do actual damage on melee weapons. melee alacrity is something I already craft on gear or look for on named gear. please change this back to Force.

    Noxious Fang- stat damaging effects appear to be useless unless you are beating on mobs for more than 5 seconds and aren't able to recover very fast. a melee weapon that deals Charisma damage is pretty much only good for caster type mobs. Fortitude saves isn't a good effect to have on a melee weapon either. this is a minor upgrade from the original.

    The Big Top- in the early days the biggest draw for the Big Top was the UMD because that +1 meant a lot.

    Phiarlan Mirror Cloak- to this day, this cloak is still powerful for its level and relevant for at least several more levels beyond because of the SR. until CC was revamped, I wore this just for the SR until like level 10 making a lot of saves.

    overall I see this as good starter gear for new players. this doesn't make me want to chase any of this and replace my CC gear. hopefully there is a revamp for the epic versions and they will be compelling. the named loot for that level range is in dire need to be power creeped to at least rival CC.

    Impactful is force damage, iirc.

    And the corrosion spellpower? Is it an oversight? If not, change Wizardry for Corrosion at least

    Will there be any changes to the Epic versions of these items? Or will scroll/seal/shard crafting turn them into the current epic items?
