But I think somebody accidently went the wrong way on the immunity/vulnerabilty slider. Either that or 2 personalisiesd possums are worth 1.5-2 ringslots worth of immunities.
I gambeled this yesterday and I don't think I ve never been as disappointed with a gamble as when I got this ring. It's basically a instant refund. When I showed wooki he said "Oh well its DECENT" but he thought that those vulnerabilites are immunities and even than he didn't value it amazingly high.
I get it that you need bad items in order to have good items. That's what I see when I get those orb boots or cloaks without physical immunities (or torches bc next to nobody uses torches without special abilities but w/e). Those boots I guess can have some applications in future runs (mabye) while the cloaks are pretty useless period. But those items are atleast giving you something.
So i wonder is this ring meant to be like this? Is it meant to be the ulitmate dudd? Or has something gone wrong with the design? Or Am I totally delusional and two personal resurrects that strip you of all buffs and use up 1.x ringslots are actually that valueable to be in the xr loottbale (maybe for all those parties that do 70+ content without a bard)?
Blame my post-run brain :l i just skimmed to the right side of the item as usual because that's what is relevant 99% time, the left side is useless clutter to my brain. My mind just couldn't fathom it would even be possible for an item like that to exist
My personal take is remove from loot pool or just change vulnerabilities to immunities - consider it's just a weaker ele-imm universal contumacy with 5% esoterics and x2 personal possums on top, without +2 stat checks... For an XR upgrade. Not the greatest. That's why I thought it was just a universal contumacy on XR tier, until i noticed... Yep. Vulnerabilities.
Given that the ring says it grants 'contingencies' I have to ask...did you test this on a character with a loaded autocaster? Contingencies are supposed to buff you with every buff stored in your autocaster when they fire - that's a LOT better than a simple possum.
That is true! Didn't even occur to test that and Dashy probably didn't either, good catch.
Wouldn't save the ring though - but it would make the logic behind it less utterly perplexing. I mean even an empty ring with 2 contingencies sucks unless we get to a point where a ring slot is no longer needed because we are so OP - considering ring is one of the most important slots in HG, if not the most important one I sure hope that doesn't happen any time soon.
I agree with the group. This item is extremely underwhelming. Even with the contingencies in play it still doesn’t pass muster. Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing the contingency feature added to the XR mord / breach rings as a carrot and take this idea and just build it into the other rings or simply removing this one all together.
As stated, the ring slot is one of the most powerful slots in the game.
