Default Re: Masterwork items bonuses?

Each masterwork item gives the same type of bonus as full normal set, except for stats modify. Obviously bonus from 1 masterwork item is less than from full normal set, but having full masterwork set will give a lot more bonus than full normal set. Lets say you have full masterwork majestic heavy set. You wont get +2 str/-2 con, but you will get more stun resistance, more acc and more p.atk bonus than from normal majestic heavy. Thats why masterworks are sometimes (but not always) better than normal sets. For example dc is better normal because of +2 wit, but masterwork IC could be better for tank classes (more p.def, more hp, more resists than normal IC, and no +2 str which not everyone likes in IC).

Default Re: Masterwork items bonuses?

certain masterwork sets are, in fact, broken but from the dev's perspective, they're "working as intended." it's usually the ones where the main piece of the armor is one piece instead of two.

i'm a temple knight and i'm -8 str from tats, a truly rare breed for any tank class nowadays. i don't want the +2 str -2 con from the normal IC so i started trying for masterwork. i have the boots, gaiters, and shield already and i have to say, in pvp i'll still be pretty useless but in pve, i'll be second to none in p.def and hp. the gaiters alone give over 180 hp.

shields will be a completely different story in gracia final. all masterwork shields add around twice their listed p.def in the form of m.def when you block. pretty useless right now but in gracia 3 when you can block nukes and de-buffs if you have shield mastery (unless the translation was wrong and which dwarves will get in gracia final) that's freakin' huge.

the masterwork items are definitely not worth the huge prices (save the shields since most people can still use a shield no matter what set they're using) that some people are wanting. there's a toon on sayha right now trying to sell the masterwork IC gloves for 400 mil. they're 150 tops.

I looked at the items and equipment library and was rather disappointed. I found only one result for a masterwork SOM (and the dev used the name HOLY SPIRIT lacked any sense of imagination or creativity). I was hoping to find different types of SOM masterworks from increasing heals, decrease mp, increase magic damage, increase hp, increase cp, etc. I mean when I get something polished I was hoping to get surprised with what comes out.

don't you think there's enough fuzzy math in this game as it is?

Now lets get this straight.

As I understand it you can't even get a Masterwork main body armor/robe anymore. It says it plainly in the Gracia Final notes.

There are definately still some in the game, but the best you can do with it if its a one piece is +4 it and then trade it in with mammon to get a masterwork boot, glove, or helmet which gets to keep the +4 enchant I have been told.

The part where I got confused reading this thread was you people seem to be indicating that if your wearing the standard/improved main body armor piece that DOES gives the set bonus that you don't get the masterwork bonuses from the boots, gloves, and helmet. As I understand things you most certainly do.

As I understand things if you use the regular/improved main body that gives the set bonus you can then add a masterwork helmet, boot, and glove and get your set bonus and the masterwork bonuses on the gloves, boots, and helmet. Since there is no such thing as getting a masterwork main body armor/robe anymore there is no longer a conflict in terms of not getting the set bonus at all while using the masterwork accesories.

The only exception of course is if you still have one of the old armor/robes which can now be exchanged with Mammon into a regular/improved version that does give the set bonus which would be a total waste.

The old master work armors/robes can instead be traded with Mammon for your choice of a boot, glove, or helmet of Foundation/Masterwork quality. Much better than just having him turn it back into a regular/improved version so you can get the set bonus.

You replied to a thread that was last posted in December.

I can confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt that Masterwork is "fixed". Now as long as u have a regular main piece you will get that bonus + additional bonus from each additional masterwork item you have for a set.

maybe you should just set your crafting abilities on getting s80; a far better use of time, and a far better gear set.

I would assume that you also have increase stun resist, concentration, and weight limit in addition to that. If so then that's is pretty nice. Also +11 runspeed is pretty nice on a mage.

And for me as a tank I prefer my Masterworks IC to s80 but that's because the s80 tank bonus kinda blows.

well.... Sisnce the time I started this thread, I managed to craft Masterwork IC set (almost all parts are masterwork except for Gaiters). And I can tell you that Masterwork IC set adds 1000 hp points to my -11con dwarf. I bet with +6 main body and found. IC Gaiters it will give me around 1500 hp... which is freakshly awesome!!!!!!!!!

Masterworks DC and tallum robe pieces disappointed. The library says they have faster cast speed but not in the game. Some of the other pieces are nice, though. There's a certain feature (or bug, depending on your perspective) that make it worth getting them.

Could you explain more clearly about the DC set?

Are you saying the cast speed bonus does not work?

What feature (bug) is it that your refering to?
