TOPIC: Skull of Cavadar vs. Seven (7) Teeth

Skull of Cavadar vs. Seven (7) Teeth 5 months 4 weeks ago #1

Anyone with all 7 teeth see a compelling game-reason to transmute? Note: I play melee builds. It may be more compelling for healers and spell-slingers.

It seems you get more mileage keeping all teeth, instead of trading them in to make the skull.

+7 HP versus Once-per-season class option. +1 damage if you already have another Eldritch item.

It's a bump to level 5 if you have one other Eldritch, though anyone that has the first few teeth probably also has the BotFW and Kilt. The completed skull also gets access to a one time event.

i am really surprised that they didn't give the 7hp to the skull of cavadar.

i would guess it is still possible though. B)

That makes the assumption you have the Semi-Lich Skull to get the 7HP. If you don't you are not getting the HP. If you do have only 1 other Eldritch item you are also getting a level bump (having more than one does not get you that).

Soooooo not saying that it is a guarantee that everyone should make the skull just that it isn't a simple choice. Each player will need to look at what tokens they have.


The ability to play in the special event is compiling enough for me to make a skull though.
You either discover a star or you don't. You arrogant punk.

It's also +1 damage/+2 healing as the skull.

Huh? With 1 other eldritch it is +1 damage and +4 healing. Unless you mean with 2 or more other Eldritch.

Making the assumption here that you already have 2 pieces, it's +1 damage/+2 healing. Since we're doing some comparisons and OP seemed to want to make the argument it's marginally better as 7 hp.

With one other Eldritch it's not even a comparison, as it's +1 level in addition to the damage and healing, which far outweighs the 7hp.

It lets you play the subclass. It's a tough decision, losing 7HP is a pretty high tradeoff if you're not playing a magic class and already own other Eldritch items, all you really get in return at that point is a slotless +1 damage and a once per year subclass. I'll probably end up doing it anyway just for the subclass though.
I play Rogue. Occasionally I even play Rogue well.

The 8th tier psychic power is the event. This tier is only available with the skull transmute - Cant get it with just individual teeth. After the event, either there will be no 8th tier power, or it will be replaced by something else. I’m hoping, but expecting to be dream crushed, that the 8th tier gets a new power after the event.

I would like that, even if it was just the ability to equip UR enablers (semi-lich/ioun stone) to unlock an additional use of a different power.

As a wizard class, the new relic/legendary requires more hp in order to use those skills. That makes the semi-lich/individual teeth just as valuable as the +1 damage from the Skull. At least I'll have options. I was collecting two sets of teeth, so my choice is to transmute one set for the Skull so I can do the extra event and in case I want to use it. I'm then keeping the semi-lich and six of the teeth for the extra 6 hp when I want that. I did decide I was willing to sacrifice 1 hp based on the selling price of the 2nd tooth, so I sold that.
