Not very happy with Randimar's this week...
Perrio's Kinetic Robes - 1500g
Dragonslayer Sword - 1500g (not bad I guess?)
Emperor's Plate - 1500g (I feel like this one is the better of the lot)
Long-handled Mace - 500g (this might be worth the cost)
Peacock Boots - 300g
I ended up buying Focused Impaling and Focused Electromancy anyways. Those might be handy if I feel like going specialist.
Yeah arrogant armor is pretty good at the higher multiplayer rankings where so many players will use frost or path of knives to kill warriors. You probably want to level up before you buy it though as at level 18 all epics cost only 500 gold I think. Dragonslayer sword is a guaranteed from one of the adventures you can unlock so it isn't very good in my opinion, there are many common and uncommon weapons at the level 17-18 level you can get from farming the last few adventures that are better.
Oh snap, I never noticed stuff gets cheaper as you level up. Luckily enough I'm reasonably close to lvl 18 already.
Thanks Armoek for all the good tips
That plate will be great for multiplayer, wish I had it
I bought the Emperor's Plate after finally hitting lvl 18 in campaign today. Good thing Armoek gave me the heads up about how items pricing works, else I would have surelly skipped on that.
Can't wait for Randimar's restock. Hopefully something else worth grabbing will show up.
It's almost crunch time, and I still haven't decided if I should buy Farzil's Perplexing Horn. It's an interesting item which I'd like to have, but I don't expect to actually use it in the near future and I only have around 1000g. It would be pretty bad if I bought it and then had to miss out on some really cool legendary next week because I couldn't afford it -- but on the other hand, it would suck if I didn't buy it and then I finally started getting legendary treasures but had nothing to spend them on! (I haven't found any legendary treasures at all so far. I've got heaps of legendary items, but no L. treasure.)
St. Xarol's Axe also looks tempting.
Farzil's Perplexing Horn Personally think it's an awesome MP item for wizard, but if you don't use it then don't waste the money
St. Xarol's Axe For me more of a SP item. Useful for large mobs.
I highly recommend Farzil's.
I have one and always find a token for it.
To be able to neuter a warrior just as he steps up to your wizard is fantastic.
I just hope Randimar's has something for me tomorrow. 7k gold waiting...
Just a reminder, there's another legendary that has 3 Short Perplexing Ray. Decide carefully if your money is better spent on that.
New player here, only 1 adventure left to go till I can buy Master's Battleaxe that I've been eyeing since I started playing, but is it worth it? My warrior is specialized in chops but they don't seem like they'd be as viable for multiplayer so it would mainly be a level 16+ campaign farming item.
The only other item that seems good is St. Amarack's Cudgel, having mass frenzy on such a low level item seems great for farming no power token items even if there are 2 twin heals on it. Or should I just save my 500 gold for after the reset and hope for something better?
I also have Chartwell's Ring in there which looks amazing but sadly I have nowhere near enough to buy it.
I really like St. Xarol's. When I do low level adventures I use one of those and a Malign Mace and my priest often outdamages my warrior.
I'd buy the axe. It's strong, versatile, seems like a lot of fun. The only hesitation for me is that for two orange tokens there are other weapons (example: Bejeweled Shortsword) that are also very good and much cheaper/easier to come by.
Pass on the cudgel, that's junk. One good card is not worth filling your deck with garbage.
I have a Bejeweled Shortsword, and yet I would be more than happy to buy a Master's Battleaxe. That nimble strike is so good.
The only good card on there is Mass Frenzy, Problem is the other 5 crappy cards pollute your deck. Depending on your build items like Field Medic's Pike , Healer's Spear , Axe Of The Dark Soul would be more cost effective
I was purely looking at the cudgel as a good item for farming low level adventures as a way to get more decent no power token items, I already have 2 St. Olf's Fiery Pike that I tend to use on higher levels. I ended up going with the Battleaxe though since chops seem so useful for farming. I was actually tempted to buy pizza to convert into gold to get Chartwell's Ring until I realized how absolutely horrible the conversion rate is, guess I'll have to put off my dreams of mass firestorming for awhile yet.
Something I hadn't really thought about, but this discussion really drives home, is the fact that the selection seems to be different for each of us, rather than a single weekly Legendary that we're all racing to get.
What bothers me, is that in other games I've played where there was a single chance at something once per week, if players didn't like what they saw then they just rolled a new free-to-play account. Why bother wasting your first week farming toward something crappy when you can make your first week a guarantee, right? These games have a tendency to get jammed with a ton of unused accounts that eat up all the available player names lickity split. It may seems silly, but some people will just make sure they get the best item in the game on week one using this strategy.
Has anyone addressed this possibility?
I got the Staff of Embers in mine, coincidentally. Guess the shop resets in a few hours though so I'll just pretend it isn't there...
Also picked up Superb Stoutness.
None of those have Mass Frenzy. And all of them require two tokens making them much worse. Ofc depends fully what you are building, but stabs are almost as bad as Bludgeon and definetely not worth losing Mass Frenzy and two tokens. EDIT: IF you plan going to range 1 and stealing life
But well, cudgel is decent for attacking priest. Mainly depends whether or not you have enough Mass Frenzy otherwise.
I don't see this as a serious issue really. I.e. you can't really fire up a new account, check Randimar's and then go grind gold like there was no tomorrow to snatch the item of your liking. Not in a easily repeatable in little time fashion.
Randimar's isn't even available to you until you beat what, 5 adventures or something? And even if you're willing to go the distance, how many attempts would you need for a significant chance at scoring exactly that one item worth the effort? And even then, be prepared for a few days worth of grinding because, you know, you only have a few days to amass the needed gold before Randimar's restocks.
So yeah, a huge time commitment there for a dubious advantage.
I have to agree with Bandreus here. I don't think the time investment is worth it to 99.9999% of people out there to do something like that.
Exactly. Also, a single legendary won't make a good deck. Given that there is no trading in the game, I doubt that having multiple accounts really pays off.
