TOPIC: Amulet of Wonder

Amulet of Wonder 12 years 8 months ago #1

Ok this Amulet changes each year, and I read somewhere the effect this year is to allow the use of a 4th lvl char I think.<br /><br />What Lvl are the charcters normally? 3rd?<br /><br />Does the Amulet work on you the individual or for the group?<br /><br />Do you simply need to possess it or must it be worn ie take up the neck slot?<br /><br />How if any will this change the adventure Creature Difficulty etc?<br /><br />Will a grp of 4th lvl Character just walk through and thus be disappointed if its too easy? Or angry that it didn't have the impact they hoped it would?<br /><br />If the adventure is made as a worst case senerio ie a grp of 4th lvl characters will the module than be too hard for a group of normal players?<br /><br />For god sakes don't turn into EQ ie make things difficult for people with the best gear, and almost impossible for normal people.<br /><br />Will their be an alternate method for people to use the 4th lvl characters? ie Experience lvl of the player Him or herself?<br /><br />whew *takes a deep breath*<br /><br />Rant complete:)<br />Thanks<br />

<br /><br />I'll take a shot at some of the answers.  <br /><br />The characters are normally 3rd level, so this adds one level.  The amulet affects just the user, not the whole group.  The amulet must be worn and take up the amulet slot for the entire adventure.  Jeff has said that the difference between 3rd and 4th level characters won't be that great, so it shouldn't unbalance the game too much.  I don't think it will change the creature difficulty, although it should make it harder for the creatures to hit you and easier for you to hit them, since you'll be a level higher.

Not to Res the Thread - but did we find out what exactly each class will gain from the AoW?<br />In D&D 3.5 (which TD is loosely based on) at 4th level you get a Stat increase (making the Belt even better for the Fighter) and for the spell casters not only might you get another new level of spells but also more of the lesser spells.  I was curious how that was going to work (I can see the AoW being the key item for Clerics, because who doesnt love more healing magic).<br /><br />Thanks in advance for any replies.<br />Greyseer<br />

Nothing is official until we have some other stuff decided.  We are going to try for a level increase this year -- but I don't want to say anything official until the module is finalized.  It should be a fun item.

If the commando run turns out to be impossible, maybe we could do a Aow + Dagger run, just for that extra little bit of edge.
