As part of the preparation for TR-ing my wizard Sparksy into an artificer I have been cataloging and redistributing her bank. Up until now, she has been my designated hoarder of epic item ingredients.
I was mildly surprised to notice just how many epic items I could create, if only any of my characters wanted them:
Epic Ring of the Silver Concord
A nice ring for an AC paladin, if they only have one ToD ring? But alas I have no AC paladins.
Epic Shimmering Pendant
Very nice item for an epic Bard. If only I had one. And he/she did not have a ToD set (all three bardic ToD sets include a necklace).
Epic Kundarak Warding Bracers
I can’t imagine the build that would benefit from this item when the bracers slot has so many more attractive options. Maybe if it was CON7? Meh.
Epic Stonemeld Plate
Another item I can’t imagine ever building because it is essentially no better than Dragontouched Plate. DR 5/- is cool I guess. Maybe if I didn’t have the Reaver’s Refuge pack?
Epic Elyd Edge
Wow this is a really great rapier for a bard! This rapier is so nice it might be worth building for any epic DEX TWF. But I am not so sure an epic DEX TWF character is worth building …
Epic Utility Vest
A very nice set of armor for an epic rogue, if only I had one. I am not certain it is better than the epic leather from the pirate event, but I think it is, and I am confident that it is at least not any worse.
Epic Phiarlan Spy Dagger
This is a really nice dagger. Except, it is a dagger. Not a caster dagger, but a melee dagger … Did I mention that it is a dagger?
I am not complaining, or at least not by intent. I’ve created several epic items that were very helpful for my characters. And I have 15-20 more items where I possess two of the three ingredients, meaning I am only one lucky drop away from adding to my epic arsenal.
I just think it interesting that I can make a half-dozen epic items, in theory the most sought possessions in the game, yet I can’t even be bothered to invest the time it takes to run to the epic altar and make them.
