Rogue: +8 Sneak Attack Damage


This is an AWESOME idea. It gives a powerful token to Rogues which is better in Nightshades and Viper Strike builds than it is in the Assassin's Crossbow build. I really, really like this.
I play Rogue. Occasionally I even play Rogue well.

Current Rogue Build

I really like this idea, or something like it (Cursed weapons with a drawback and an upside)

Once per game, the owner of this item may immediately use a once per game item, even if it has already been used.


Errata: This item may not be used to re-use Figurine of Power: Elephant an infinite number of times :lol:

Or heck, even a CoGF with a different name so it can't be a part of the CoA recipe (and of course can't be used by CoA holders).


Maybe not a reprint, but something close. I think there's a goal to sort of limit how rapidly the total treasure available goes up, but also to keep printing treasure enhancers that BiS players would buy to keep up sales.

The concept of synergy could be somewhat refined to not be based exactly on the named token but each token could be a member of a synergy set. In this example we would be talking about the "Good Fortune" synergy set, but the new token could either keep the good fortune name and end up in another slot or could be a new charm with a different name but indicating it is in the Good Fortune synergy set. Each player can only benefit from a synergy set bonus once, regardless of how many tokens in the set they equip.

The new good fortune synergy set token would have a base of +2 treasure. It would grant +1 treasure if there are 6-9 players with the good fortune synergy set active or +2 if there are 10. As such depending on the slot existing players would still want it to boost their max up to 25. Newer players have a way to join into the synergy set reducing the treasure gap a bit and providing a benefit to BiS players who don't have a full set of treasure enhancers to loan out to a party.

This concept has some potentially interesting design space outside of the treasure enhancing area. There could be synergy sets where casters and martials could participate and get role appropriate bonuses. Some examples:

Devotion set where a cleric or druid would get bonus to heal in a hand slot, a paladin might get bonus to lay on hands or guard on a shield, other martials maybe get extra damage to evil/evil outsiders from a wrist (in addition to whatever base power would be needed to make the wrist viable when the conditional damage doesn't help).

Tactician set where perhaps martials get a bonus to hit, rogue gets bonus sneak attack damage, wizards and druids get bonuses to single target damage spells, bard gets some sort of bonus to bardsong.

Sorry for the long rambling post.

I really like these as ideas. Not sure a random newbie would want to find them in their treasure packs, though (unless there's also some Common/UC/Rare Retribution available in the 2023 set.) But as a way to work towards a Retribution build, these would be excellent Charms to equip, even in a competitive slot!

Perhaps these would be better as 4 point transmutes for the reason you mention.

This is more of a general comment about what I want to see in regards to UR. As a Nightmare-level player, what drives me to buy tokens is unique effects and treasure enhancers. Slot expanders and stat bonuses don't really drive me to buy tokens anymore. For example, my favorite token from 2022 was Butterfly Cloak, it's not even close to the best item for its slot but it is fun and does something different. Build diversity that doesn't revolve around stat manipulation is something that I think would really help keep the game interesting.

I love some of the ideas that have already been brought up here that align with this. For example:
UR that allow for all in retribution builds that actually do a meaningful amount of damage.
UR tokens that provide non-focus related special benefits to Druids who are Polymorphed
Ideas like this get me really excited for new builds.
