    Default Bludgeoning Guard items, Slashing Guard items as random treasure drops

    Hello,

    I have seen Thorn Guard items a lot of times and they do piercing damage.

    What I have not found on items are :

    Bludgeoning damage guard
    Slashing damage guard

    I mean, of all physical damage types known from weapons, these are missing as guard items from random loot.

    I can imagine, however, that creating items with bludgeoning and slashing guard would be difficult from a logical perspective.

    So far, I could only imagine - for example - shields with embedded blades instead of thorns for slashing guard (similar looking like the armor of the Bladeforged Ones), and lead knuckles on shields for bludgeoning guard, for example.

    I could also imagine blades for shield bash doing slashing damage and lead knuckles for shield bash doing bludgeoning damage.
    The shields should have a corresponding look, then, of course, to give the player a clue what kind of shield does what kind of shield bash damage.

    Default Most Guard items still Broken...

    Just remember MOST Guard Items are broken, base damage only (1dX) (except for some named items). See here for more info: https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...s-broken/page2
