    I really like @Rohndil 's Phantom Brick... It seems to follow the rules well, competitive without being too powerful, I could imagine a reasonable trade off with Phantom Pain. You have the weaker Wall Of Illusion to make up for more barriers overall and it is a rare. Plus, Minor Illusion is only on one card so far. Although there could be a concern with three barrier type cards on one item? which would be a first... but my favorite submission by a long way so far.

    Now if only I had some ideas...

    The hardest thing about this is that Arcane Items are largely used for control, burning, or terrain effects. There's very little that hasn't already been done adequately on existing arcane items, which isn't either useless or so focused as to be overpowered.

    I had the same idea wayyy back and was considering to enter it into the competition. Luckily for @Rohndil, I ended up with something else :p

    So, I have made an item for dwarven mages.
    They need moblity badly, and can take the damage (often they come with armor included).
    What are your opinions on that?

    Dwarves already have Hawkwind's Moccasins and they're the majority of wizards, so I don't think it's necessary.

    Currently, 68 different cards have been used on Arcane items. Here's a list of those cards sorted by the number of times the card appears on Arcane items:

    "Top" 15
    1. Arcane Feedback, Combustible, Ember Burst, Inquisition Bolt, Lava Pool, Loner & Minor Illusion (1)

    Ok, I guess I am the only one not to have those boots. :)
    Looking at the list I had an idea for another item - feel free to use it if you have no ideas -

    Misanthrope 's Bauble

    Was thinking about a major token control item....? they don't really exist unless you count hypnotic beacon. I don't think this is overpowered??


    Any name suggestions? I thought something tornado or hurricane related but couldn't come up with much...

    Here's a wild suggestion; change one of the Winds Of War cards into Gusts Of War and name the item "Cap of Four Winds". (it's a traditional sami headgear that has four "points" which are said to symbolize the winds blowing from four cardinal directions)

    You can also name it Bag of winds.
    You know, like the one from the Odyssey.

    Too bad Taunt or Hear Them Out isn't in arcane items; the name would be even more perfect :D

    mckeen's posts reminded me: some months ago, I had an idea (iirc) for a rare level 21 (majortoken) Arcane Item to make my elf happier in The Metallic Monstrosity, lol. Winds of War, Gusts of War, Telekinesis. I might have even had some nifty name with Aeolus in it, but I don't recall in the least. If anyone wants to toss that in, go for it. If not, then I'll probably move Aloyzo's Whirligig into the discussion thread and replace it with this "real" entry. $F^ J

    Nice! I didn't copy, cross my heart. Great minds think alike I guess. :cool:

    Personally I'm rooting for Robauke's Embettled Soil, Everlasting Ground is basically a new card and would be a welcome addition in my spellbook.

    @BlackVoidDeath s submission makes acid mages a temptation again since up to this point i don't believe we've had access to acid jet on arcane item.
    I really like (i know others don't) introducing slight changes in meta to the game every now and then.

    I didnt know that acid jet wasnt on arcane items, but the fact that the item costs a major token probably wont allow for many acid builds but then again I dont know much about acid mages (if it does then great, who doesnt love a bit of acid).
    I chose acid jet because it fit the theme of the other two cards (silver quality & multiple terrain) the best out of all acid cards.
    Since I am already here I might as well explain the item: in case anyone didnt get my card choices most physical paints are made using a ryb scheme but because yellow blessed terrain isnt exactly an option I made it rgb and called it Madman's Paint pallet because rgb are the primary colors of light but who has ever heard of rgb being used as primary colors in on a paint pallet :p
    edit: also because you are somehow conjuring fire, acid and water out of a paint pallet.
    For more information on ryb vs rgb go to google, its actually a fairly interesting topic (for me at least): sources 1 2.

    As Van Gogh said, "You gotta have an ear for it."

    My immediate idea for an item for Aloyso (based upon the campaign story-line) was...

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] probably more appropriate.

    I'd also suggest getting rid of Punishing Beam, I don't think a card which can easily do 15 damage with 6 range should be on an Arcane Item. :p
