I missed out on the rod, so I am looking forward to being able to play an alternate class.

I've been playing TD for 13? years now, but I didn't get serious about token collecting at a high level until really this last couple of years. Previously I would maybe buy one or two URs a year (many years not even that). I happened to get into the teeth just in time and between that and the kilt, am looking forward to not using a ring slot for my level bump (just in time for me to add the Ring of Expertise to my build). The alt character and astral special event are just icing on the cake for me.

Thanks for the input, all. This is more of a consideration related to the Semi-Lich Skull, rather than the Skull of Cavadar transmute--due to the fact that the Teeth and the Skull are an independent effect function (that has nothing to do with the effect caused/created by a separate token).

If I'm not playing wizard, I don't really care about 7 slotless hp.

Certainly not at the opportunity cost of going to the event, or selling a 1st/2nd/3rd tooth for $1000+

I can count on one finger the number of times I've been hit down to <= 7hp (noob runs w/o tokens excluded). YMMV...maybe other players are constantly getting hit down to a half-heart on their characters.

It means I can part with my might set if I choose, and I get extra HP from 5th level! If your case is different then you know, you do you. Last person I suggested selling their second tooth if they didn’t want to do the upgrade as it was selling quite nicely at the time, I assume it still is. 7 vs 6 hp and a fair bit of gold or USD is probably just as good!

That is probably the best advice if you are not going to transmute for the skull sell 1 tooth or maybe even 2, because 1 or 2 HP is likely not worth all the stuff you could get for teeth 1 and 2.

As a part-time tooth fairy, here is what i have learned:

it's not completely a question of alt class & level vs HP. There are #2 teeth owners that are holding them in order to make additional completed skulls when TD changes their mind and grants the +HP to the complete skull owners.

I totally understand that logic and in no way bear the owners any ill-will. If I had copies of #2; I wouldn't sell them if I think that I can get both benefits (alt-class/level & HP) by holding on to them.

personally, i would like TPTB to just change the finished product to granting the 7 HP. i believe that would be the best option. :S

The downside of changing the Transmuted skull to allow it to work with Semi-Lich is that there are those that didn't buy the Semi-Lich because they didn't think it would work with the Transmuted Cavadar, or at !east weren't sure if it would.

As Chad said, the main purpose of the Semi-Lich was to give more value for people that could get some of the teeth but not all 7.

I'd be OK with the Transmuted Cavadar giving some HP bonus on it's own, but to me it's pretty late in the game to say it works with Semi-Lich, unless it's offered as a PYP again.

Just feels like we've had this discussion before and a decision was made. I understand its all coming back because we're getting ready to transmute for the skulls, but some people already made personal choices based on the prior decision. So at this point, you're not going to make everyone happy. Yes, I wish the decision had been to include some hp bonus with the completed skull. Now, I'm just trying to move on.
