Yes, it is :).
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

If I write something in teal, it should not be taken seriously

Very Cool! It seems like a very balanced token ability, certainly very useful, but not overpowered.

My favorite thing about the announcement is the new Spirit Pet slot. I wonder if that's a one token slot or if you can have multiple spirit pets. I'm looking forward to getting a future Spirit Pet.

TokenDB says you can only take 1 pet with you into the dungeon.

Thanks, for the info!

I'm setting my sights a bit lower than a Red Dragon Spirit Pet, I'm aiming more at a Spirit Pet Field Mouse. ;)

Any chance this red dragon pet could actually breath Sacred damage instead of fire? It is a spirit after all ;)

It just seems that with this being fired-based, the likelihood of it getting quickly outshone by future pets seems high.

Initial thoughts.

The five orb transmute seems solid and fairly well balanced.

The extra for the Eldest Orb is not only underwhelming, but I wonder if I’d ever actually use it.

Between it being fire damage, alchemical, and (I think?) replacing my normal swing I think it almost always would be a downgrade to my existing hammer throw. The only exception that I can think of is when I’m sure the mob is vulnerable to fire damage.

I don’t want it to be game breaking, but given my investment in obtaining the token, I’d like to be able to use the additional benefits every run even if its a minor benefit.

I’d encourage some tweaking to at least make this a benefit that would be consistently usable.

As a friendly reminder, Jeff has been saying for years that the dragon orbs are not going to be a big deal.

I don't think I'd ever attack with my Spirit Pet, I think it would just keep me company during the adventure. :)

No offense Druegar, but there’s a big difference between being moderately powered (actually under-powered for the investment) and being practically unusable in almost every run.

As stands even if it didn’t take the place of my swing, it’d still be worse than a FoP: Reaver proc, but at least I’d be able to have fun using it every run.

That said, I’m sure there’s other ways to reward the most serious collectors who’ve gone after the full set vs just the cheapest five orbs they could find.
