New Legends - Forum Design Contest

As with tradition, we’re going to be adding 8-10 new Legend items for our next patch that promote different builds and play-styles. Because we love your feedback and know that you might have ideas for some new items, we’re up for hearing some of your ideas for new Legend items!

Cool to see the orbs getting some love!

Is there a possibility to make a Weapon with another Ulti? Example Wand with Meteor?

Definitely possible, but we’re planning on saving skill changing stuff like that for the next tier past Legend. These items would change the skill(s) on the item, or alter them in a significant way. We’re still polishing and balancing the current skills we have, so items like that haven’t made yet, but will get to it at some point. Would love to hear any combinations you guys would like to see as well!

Name: Aethan’s Hammer
Item: Hammer
Element: Poison

That is my hammer hope you like it :smile:

Epic Affix 5 Armor
Epic Affix 6 Extra Bolt (or Random Affix)

Basically just a bloody great hammer :smile:. Make it Gold and Glowing if you can.

Ok, we’ve chosen 3 Legends that we’re using for this next patch.

[ul][li]Aegis Armor - Great Offensive Warrior Chest, replacing Blood Knight with +Damage to Flurry ( Sword’s main ability )[/li]
[li]b Revenge[/b] - A good alternative to Skull of Ignis, just changed Talent on item to Fustigate[/li]
[li]Orb of Illusion - Love the Mirror Reflection ability, thinking about changing this to a Mirror Image ability instead, that leaves a temporary copy of your wizard behind[/li][/ul]

Notes on other submitted weapons:

[ul][li]Aethan’s Hammer - Great Theme and this still may make it, but would like to save this for our Poison set that may come this next patch or the one after, and will possibly rename to Plaguebringer. [/li]
[li]Eyarowen’s Blade - A bit too powerful for now, would like to fit items into a theme/playstyle for these Legends. [/li]
[li]Ifrit’s blade - Very close to Obsidian Blade[/li]
[li]Wizard Prang’s Golden Hammer - If has to be Golden and Glowing, we have to wait till we can get some Legend skins from our Artist :smile: Also we need a name for it. [/li]
[li]Simba’s Scimitar - Needs some stats :smile: Apparently swords are a popular item![/li][/ul]

We’re still keeping an eye on this thread and if you guys have feedback or want to edit what you’ve submitted please do!
