    Default U42 Preview 3: Minor Artifacts

    Disclaimer
    Everything seen on the preview server, Lamannia, is not final and is subject to change or removal before live release.

    Update 42 is going to feature a new designation for equipment items called a "Minor Artifact". The most basic explanation is: A piece of equipment with the "Minor Artifact" designation (displayed on it's tooltip) is an extra powerful item that goes into one of your normal equipment slots (Head, Neck, Wrists, etc.) and can have filigree slotted into it. Below are some specific details to help understand what is distinct about a Minor Artifact:

    • Each Minor Artifact can only be equipped into a specific equipment slot, however, which slot that is differs from Minor Artifact to Minor Artifact.
    • A character may only equip a single Minor Artifact regardless of slot.
    • The power level of equipment effects on a Minor Artifact are higher than other equipment items at the same minimum level.
    • Minor Artifacts can be placed in the Sentient Weapon ui.
    • Each Minor Artifact begins with one Filigree Slot available. They do not need a Sentient Jewel nor can you slot a sentient jewel into one.
    • Minor Artifacts can consume named items, just like a Sentient Weapon, to gain xp.
    • Unlocking Filigree slots for a Minor Artifact costs half the XP that unlocking a Filigree slot in a Sentient Weapon costs.
    • Each Minor Artifact has a different maximum Filigree Slots. This Maximum Filigree Slot total can not be adjusted by consuming a Sentient Spark. All of those available in Update 42, however, have 3 maximum Filigree Slots.
    • A Minor Artifact can not be consumed by a Sentient Weapon or another Minor Artifact.
    • Filigree slotted into your equipped Minor Artifact count towards the set bonuses of Filigree slotted into your equipped Sentient Weapon
    • The same Filigree slotted into your equipped Minor Artifact AND your equipped Sentient Weapon will not stack with each other, though both will count towards their set bonus. (For instance, if you placed "Deadly Rain Dexterity" into both your equipped Minor Artifact and your equipped Sentient Weapon you would only gain +1 Dexterity BUT you would have the 2 piece set bonus from Deadly Rain active)


    And that's essentially the Minor Artifacts system. Players will choose one high powered item to be the cornerstone of their gearing layout and then will fill it out with filigree in order to expand their available filigree set bonus possibilities.

    The full list of Minor Artifacts currently planned to be released with Update 42 is below:

    Can you still not swap artifacts in the same slot? Or is it fixed? Or just one of those SOL situations?

    Swapping the Wis item leaves a Wis caster item that can't be used with the divine caster set. While I fear more swapping will just cause more conflicts, would swapping the caster Wis bracers for the dps Wis ring be better?

    Think that is the point of artifacts. You have to sacrifice something to gain their benefit. Some builds of course will be able to utilize them 100% while others are going to have to pick and choose.

    Then the original swap was pointless, as it was to appease Int based toons and druids who had different set conflicts...

    Default Something is missig

    Hi again,

    When i look at the artifact list, i noticed something strange, there is not the same number of items per stat :

    Int 2, Cha 2, Dex 2, Wis 2, Con 1 & Str 1 .

    So, why is there only one artifact for constitution and for Strengh ?

    There are already three other sources of Dodge in U42 (Silver Dragonscale Capelet, Celestial Sapphire Ring, Wildwood Guantlets).

    Could the Dodge be turned into Diversion? This was only on one item (Hammerfist), but even that got removed by popular demand, so I'm desperately hoping that threat reduction can return somehow. (I did make a previous suggestion to put threat reduction on Cornerstone Champion but I guess you didn't like that idea.) A lot of light melee builds need threat reduction, and a lot of those builds are dex-based.

    Failing that, could the Dodge at least be made Insightful? There are zero sources of Insightful Dodge in U42.

    The Radiant Ring,

    Wisdom, Qual Accuracy, Qual Deadly all look good for Monks. The law absorb I'm a little confused on. If Monks are forced to be lawful, would they be immune to law damage and this affix is wasted? Is the ring designed to support combat Druids then?

    The Band of Diani ir'Wynarn Bracer Minor Artifact now conflict with the Flamecleansed Fury Set Items.

    So if you want to Primal/Divine Casters can use it, need to avoid: Cloak/ Bracers (Flamecleansed Fury), Gloves/necklace (Hruit's Influence).
    Based on list the other options are Ring or Goggles, not a fan of that but better than lose the sets.

    Edit: maybe turn the item to a Ring. Instead of swap the effects to other? Since the goggles Collective Sight are for Divines.

    Exactly this! Make it Force or Chaos, please.

    I think the reason is general build categories.
    Con is generic. Str is physical dps. Int is xbow or caster. Wis is monk or caster. etc.

    Perhaps a THF str and a more general str and a super tanky con and a general use con would have been cool though.

    Monks aren't law-immune. Certain spells and effects that deal law damage specify that lawful targets take less damage... but not all of them do. Some things just deal flat law damage regardless of alignment.

    As far as i get it those two collide with their designated Sets. The WIS Bracers (Band of Diani ir'Wynarn) collides with the Flamecleansed Fury (Divine Caster) Set and the INT Neclace (Key of Rhukaan Draal) collides with the Part of the Family (Melee Dps) Set.
    This is annoying for Clerics and FVS as well as Int based Assasins (and any other Harper Melee build)

    As for this idea: STOP TRYING TO IMPROVE YOUR GEAR SETUP BY MESSING WITH OTHER PPL ONES !!!!! STOP SWITCHING

    PLS, PLS, PLS Lyn consider just making all Artifacts Rings, so there won´t be any classes / builds to lose out big time compared to others.

    THX very much for your great work so far

    Hey Lyn, please change The Band of Diani to fit into a ring or goggles slot. It currently interferes with the divine casting set.

    Default Consider Multi Slot Like Slavers

    I hate the way slavers items always went into a default slot but am beginning to think that a multi slot item like slavers may be the best option for artifacts.
