    Public item brainstorming, post your ideas using the following criteria:

    Item One
    Archetype: INT Caster
    Tier of power: 11-15
    Theme 1: Undead, Water, Cold
    Theme 2: Magic, Madness, Beast/Animal
    Focus Effect(s) used populate a class/slot not already in the game

    Item Two
    Archetype: Melee
    Tier of power: 11-15
    Theme 1: Undead, Water, Cold
    Theme 2: Magic, Madness, Beast/Animal
    Focus Effect(s) used populate a class/slot not already in the game

    Archetypes can be adjusted: Examples
    SHD + CASTERS
    WAR + MELEE
    The item could include both melee and casters

    If the item has a proc, find a spell using the spell parser whose name/element matches the theme and incorporate it. There are a lot of spells available outside the pool of character spells.
    https://spells.shardsofdalaya.com/

    If the item is more powerful for it's tier, limit the amount of classes available to wear it

    Bonus points if you select an item image ID from this wiki page: https://wiki.shardsofdalaya.com/index.php/Item_Images
    It loads slow and not completely, grinkles has a neat way to extract all the item images from the client.

    You could probably create a wiki account, create an item page, and link the preview picture, though that is not necessary. Wiki editors might delete it afterwards, perhaps they can chime in.

    There is an element of new item discovery that posting your idea here might spoil, so if you wish you can just direct message me your idea via discord

    Have fun and be nice.

    If you want to make faux item mock-ups on the wiki, please just make them in your user space (everyone gets a user space on account creation) so they are separate from the core wiki stuff.

    Concept: The awesomest of spiked shoulderpads. There are afaik zero slam procs beyond about teir 2 or so, which is a fun idea that I always wanted to see more of. Thorny acumen because of SPIKES, the specific proc because you are being impaled by spikes and your armor is now full of spikey holes. For the tier the proc rate is the same as other shields. For the proc, shatter armor may last too long but mortal cleave/deep wound don’t last long enough to be worth using. Is there a middle of the road alternative? Goal for the proc is to do something noticeably different than most shields do, giving a reason for this item to exist rather than just effectively the same proc as a shield in a different slot.

    [MAGIC] [LORE] [NO DROP]
    Slot
    : Shoulders

    AC: 55

    Skill Mod: Riposte +5 or Bash +10
    Effect: Shatter Armor (15% Slam proc), alternately a shorter proc at a much higher rate, keep in mind shield procs are 1kpt+ unresistable dd’s at this tier at 15%

    Focus Effect: Thorny Acumen
    STR: +40 STA: +20 AGI: -10 DEX: +0 INT: +20 WIS: +20 CHA: 0

    SVMag: +20 SVPois: +15 SVDis: +35 SVFire: 0 SVCold: 0

    HP: +225 Mana: +200

    Aggression: +2%

    Flowing Thought: +2
    WT: 40.0 Size: Giant
    Class: War, Pal, SK
    Race: Bar, Troll, Ogre
    Slot 1 type 2: empty

    EDIT: Races and classes could be opened up so it wouldn't be a dead drop on a loot table without really changing the power level since slam is restricted to specific races already.
