    Ur'stone looks interesting, there will hopefully be more information tomorrow as to what limitations (if any) are on it.

    Oh my god at the ur'Stone.

    Only question I have, does the Great Rune of Solid Mass actually increase your size stat, and by how much?

    Also the promise rings are just.. why is that not a standard artifact  :((

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    You see Estarra the Eternal shout, "Morkarion is no more! Mourn the mortal! But welcome True Ascendant Karlach, of the Realm of Death!

    If you fly on a magic carpet with people following you who cannot fly, will the wind still blow them into adjacent rooms?  I'm asking because if it does, they will then fall down and suffer.  If not, it's a pretty neat little artifact.

    Meh... nothing to really spark my interest much on the list. Maybe the binoculars, but there will be 10 other melders with more credits to bid on those.

    Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
  • ThulThul Member Posts: 568 Fabled
    Scorpion Cocktails look entertaining, honestly, but... eh. Not worth the credits that're going to be spent on them, most likely.

    Same with the scythe.
  • TullyTully Member Posts: 170 Capable
    Aw crap, I bid a lot on the wrong thing...ick...next time read it better...:(

    Xenthos, never had that happen, but I don't think I've done that on a place like Air where the wind does that.  I'll have to check.  It's really neat one, mount it and you can float over water as well.

    I'm not sure you want to test it on Air.  You'd be better off testing it on Prime in Icewynd I think, where there's almost always a lot of wind.

    Even then, they are not -that- great. All it shows is "You see that <person> has a demesne of size <number of rooms>." Then again, there are only two pairs out there, one held by me and the other by Viy, so not sure how much he uses his.

    Scorpion Cocktail looks like ridiculous fun for Mag/Glom Monks.

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    How much do shield amplifiers heal? Do they work while bashing?
  • XenthosXenthos Shadow Lord Member Posts: 6,893 Transcendent
    Well, intelligent NPCs don't bounce off of shields, but I'd expect that mobs who can't break shields would trigger it.

    Does the 'etc' on shield amplifiers include things like prismatic barriers, rebounding, or serpent?

    Mayor Steingrim, the Grand Schema says to you, "Well, as I recall you kinda leave a mark whereever you go."
  • AkyaevinAkyaevin Member Posts: 586 Fabled
    Probably means salt/enchantment pentagram/Celest vial/harbsong/diamond/etc. as in things that create a standard shield.
  • EiylaeEiylae Member Posts: 20 Apprentice
    Does the illusion rune include things like phantom and claws?  [-O<

    Title:                                     (Days until closing: 135)
         Ur'Stone
    Prize:
         an ur'Stone of Cankermore
    Current bid:
         525 credits.
    Description:
         Powers up when you kill denizens (5,000 mob levels to

         room where you will be automatically resurrected when you die.
         You can unset the stone at any time if you wish to move it, but
         you will only resurrect to the stone if it has been planted.
         This resurrection will work from anywhere in Lusternia,
         regardless of the distance between your location of death and
         the ur'Stone.

    Yes. Anything that shows on ILLUSIONS. So not phantomspheres you've attacked with, but I think everything else. It even includes maze (bumps it from 40s to 60s) although it's worth noting maze always has a special-exit situation (walking around it has a chance to fling you out, but means you're under constant assault from the superspeed colourmaelstrom in there).

    They will heal somewhere 2.5% - 5.0%. Yes, they work while bashing.

    No, just standard shields.

    Eiylae said: Does the illusion rune include things like phantom and claws?  [-O<
    Yes, all illusions.
  • XenthosXenthos Shadow Lord Member Posts: 6,893 Transcendent
    Can the carpet be made so that followers on it are not blown around by the wind, but instead only the carpet's "driver" (if they do not have a brooch of the tempest)?

    It'd be able to fulfill its stated intent at that point I think.

  • IosaiIosai Member, Gods Posts: 201 Divine
    You'd be better off issuing to enquire about an alteration like that (I can't give you an answer, I'm afraid).

    You'd be changing a standard 250db Artifact for that Xenthos.  Not that I'd complain if it was buffed, though it's been around a long time.

    I think you mean that they'd be fixing a 250-dingbat artifact. It's not very useful if the purpose (letting others fly with you) is spoiled by the very mechanics of flight.

  • EventruEventru Member, Gods Posts: 719 Divine
    They're no more affected by flight than the driver, though; should they have a Brooch, they too would be immune. The nature of flying are the very mechanics of flight, after all.

    Absolutely nobody will ever buy a brooch if they cannot fly. The gimmick of the carpet is that it provides that ability temporarily to those who will by definition not possess said brooch.

    Very late edit now that I am no longer on the phone: And unfortunately that entire gimmick is voided by those very mechanics.  It lasts as long as they are following you, and once blown away, game over. :(

    You know, that is a good point; I forgot that it also affects wind in the trees.  Mostly because for RL years Glomdoring had no wind at all.
