Well there's my dilemma. After my trade token redemption i will have everything I need to make both the Blessed Redoubt Shield and the Moonhide Robe.

Based on past experience I will get one of them in the GT swag. Do I make the shield and take what I assume to be 50/50 chance of getting the Robe? Based on what I'm hearing from the group most everyone wants the shield so there is a fair chance I could trade for the Robe.

And assuming the treasure boxes are similar to last year, I have some chance of pulling another relic either at GenCon or GHC. (A big if...). So there is a small but significant chance of getting both and saving the trade goods. Which would put me in striking distance of making the Legendary Slayer Sword.

Right now I'm leaning toward the "wait and see" option

If I do not have to make the relics I'd have to buy around $200 or so in trade goods, mostly steel and Hide.

if you need trade goods come see me :)

but as I have said before, don't count on anything in that goodie bag. It has changed over time and you just never know.
also it could be different this year(i have no clue on any of this)..he could decide to hand them out after the run as treasure

I don't lose much by waiting. Removing the fort penalty on the shield is not essential to my Dwarf Fighter build as fort is my best save. The Robe would be primarily used by one of my sons friends and when I run with that group it's at hardcore difficulty. Overkill...

So wait and see is not a bad route to go.
