    Sounds very interesting... Is it going to be obtainable through a secret quest? Is it gonna spawn somewhere in the world? Is it gonna be account bound? Discuss!! :]

    My impression is it would be a quest item. As they didn't really imply any level of exclusiveness. My concern then though is how rare "artifacts" will ultimately be. On the other hand.. it looks like there will indeed be "artifacts" and that is something I find promising.

    So.....does this mean that there will be non player crafted items out there now?:)

    I hope so...this looks interesting.

    My impression is that any such item wouldn't really be "usable" in the traditional sense. There are already some non-craftable items like the Oracle heads. I imagine that artifacts will be the same sort of thing. From the description it sounds like it. Some kind of ambient effect or 1 time use per day effect. Something intended for display rather than being carried around.

    I agree. This will also offer the opportunity to explore even more the current world and its secrets. I was thinking though that it must be either a rare spawn somewhere or a drop rather than a quest reward... Time will tell!

    But what would drop such a thing? A rare drop from a rare mob? Dragon loot?

    The trouble with being a spawn is that once people know where it spawned there would always be people checking those places out.

    This is not Everquest, and it's not WoW. I don't think "quest items" and "phat loot" are primary concerns of the developers. I think "artifacts" are going to be exactly what they should be.

    Yes, time will tell. But until then, is it possible for us to not apply the logic of other games to this one? I got news for you, those other games are crap.

    Well as long as it is inspired by one of the UO's -many- successful recipes it is fine with me!

    Hopefully it spawns only once a month and only one person can obtain it per month ;)

    They need things like this and weapons etc to make the world more interesting...I think there is a ton of potential for "interesting" magic items.

    I think you do need interesting things...I don't want basic armor and basic weapons as the only gear you can get....I'm not with you on this one, and there is a big difference between WOW level gear and magic gear....you have to have some.

    Its a heart container. If you collect four pieces of heart it will fill up and you'll get more health.

    Interesting, I thought you WERE with me on this. I'm basically saying the same thing you are...the world needs special things that don't "drop" and can't be "made" and have "special qualities" and "history".

    At least it isn't an item to buy with real money...we don't need any more of those.

    Well, there are only so many ideas in the world and Zelda and Shroud of the Avatar are pretty similar games. It was only bound that they should come up with some of the same ideas. Like heart containers.

    *Speculation*
    It's an artifact of lost love. Before the cataclysm, when magic was predictable, a powerful sorceress was executing a powerful spell when something went wrong, deadly wrong. Her one true love was destroyed when the spell failed. It was not known what caused the failure of the spell, only that the soul essence of her love became trapped within an impenetrable ring of thorns. The sorrow of the sorceress grew over time and her life began to fade, in a last ditch effort to join her love forever, she cast her final spell...
