    Default Community: You Make The Item!

    Greetings, all! We've been hard at work making our next expansion as fun as possible - and we want your help! Each week, starting right now, vote in a poll to help us choose the details of an item in Sharn. The winning option of each poll will change further decisions, and the end result will be able to be found inside the Sharn Expansion upon its release. Without further ado, we want to know - Goggles, Bracers, or Belt?

    (For the lawyers: Our intention is to make the item based on your poll results, but we reserve the right to adjust the item if necessary.)

    Will each week be a different item? Or are we only affecting a single item you guys are making?

    This is a single item. The poll options will start relatively simply - narrowing down a slot and a broad theme before getting into specifics. At the end of it all, we'll end up with one item to be released in Sharn, designed by the DDO community

    Nope, Sharn will have just one item, and you all have to share it.

    The item is exclusive to server. Once a character finds it, it is removed from the treasure tables.

    The item has limited durability, and cannot be repaired. As soon as it is 'destroyed', it disappears from that character and returns to the loot tables.

    It cannot be banked. Even as a backpack item, it garners damage as if equipped.
    It can be tossed out of pack, which essentially 'destroys' the item for return to the lists.
    If the item detects it's owner has not logged in for 1 week of real time, it self-destroys and returns to the lists.
    The owning character has a unique aura similar to Diablo's Tal Rasha set:



    ...etc.

    Could be fun.

    Fun. Nifty idea.

    I voted bracers. Plenty of decent belts for both casters and melee. Okay goggles for both. Bracers are still very meh. Many of my characters still wear Epic Ethereal Bracers because they cover so many effects or Lvl21 Mysterious Bracers with Draconic Soulgem slotted (traded between my alts as necessary).

    Goggles

    Maybe it's just me, but when I build gear sets, especially for my L30 toons, I can never seem to find named goggles that fit. And to make it worse, Cannith crafted goggles never seem to be able to take the enchantments that I'm missing on the rest of my items.

    I was planning to do a bunch of heroic lives a while ago, and I wanted to build greensteel SP and HP/blur items. When I mentioned this to someone, he say, "Let me guess. Goggles and gloves?" Ummm... yep.

    goggles for ranged toons (or melee dps), bracers for casters and belt for tanks

    cause there're some nice items in certain slots that don't free the same slot in the most common builds
    psykopeta is finally baconpletionist because there isn't anything to delay it more - thelanis, where the gimps claim to be pros and noobs claim to be pros, no newbies allowed(unless they claim to be pros), we have enough drama w/o them. PS: I post only in the latest thread shown in main page, in the weird case u want something from me, feel free to send pm

    Bracers of Legendary regret;

    Insightful Sheltering +25 prr&mrr
    Resistance +16 to all saves
    accuracy 30
    melee power 12
    Mythic Wrist Boost +1 or +3
    Regret over the anguish given to the poor tanks who have to juggle poorly designed gear sets for over a year.

    googles - including how they should look would be nice too!!!

    some non INT/wizard caster types need better goggle options.

    I don't understand the point of choosing a slot when you don't know what the item properties are?
    This is about as much fun as a mindless forum game.

    We also get to add item properties at the weeks go on.

    I think starting out with the slot first is proper.

    Caster
    Melee
    Ranged
    Trapper

    The week after that, we might be choosing between several property #1


    Might given some insight into how Devs build items....
