Item Development - Information

Looks good to me :)
Anybody would dare to estimate a price on it? It looks really enjoyable to test out. I just DK if I should make a build for it in the upcoming 4(or3)month and rely on it.
Although I guess I could use firestorm while waiting for moneys for the staff. IDK.

Opinions?

20C is the best I could do : ^)

So, a skill-gem-less skill.

This. It's so out of character for PoE that it's almost like they've jumped the shark.

Where will it all end? Phasing out skill gems all together?

I just cant understand why would you create such item for so low level and to have so specific requirement

you all worry to much, its gonna be completly useless unique....useless in end game and useless for leveling for more then few levels since it is so specific oriented (all INT)

one thing is certain for me, i dont have hopes that we will see powerful uniques in POE any time soon

only expensive uniques will be ones that you need achiv for in new leagues that are very rare....

apart from that and few strong uniques like shav, mjolner, Hege and few others there is not much to hope for when farming

alts, alts, alts, then vendor some more trash for more alts.....oh yea, then farm some more alts

Uniques were never intended to be strong they only give you something special, even those high value one. F.e. mjolner only got the strong cast on hit effect for the rest there are better rare hammers, but you need a lot of strength and int. Shav got the strong chaos does not bypass shield bonus, so does solaris lorica. But for defense and resistences there are much better and cheaper rares.

Also this staff can be quit strong because it is easy to get around 400 int that means 40 * (1-3) = (40 - 120) so compareble to a level 15 firestorm gem. And if you focus a bit more on int and even take some notables you normally don´t need as int based char. you can easily get more then 500 int.

The only thing i still don´t understand at the staff is do i need links? That is something i also wanted to know for Jaws of agony (the shield that gives lvl 20 bear trap). Because every support gem is linked to the skill in the item, isn´t it?

You do not need links for Ice Storm. Every socket in an item inherently links to a skill/support in the item. This was confirmed by a dev somewhere in this thread (click the pretty GGG icon to see which one, I forget who).

Do this skill have Damage efectiveness reduction like firestorm have? becouse if not this skill can be very powerful

I want to buy this staff to test the new skill ; )>
An immense river of oblivion is sweeping us away into a nameless abyss.
I tend think OP wrote this post when they designed this item (somewhere in february) so "expansion later this year" sounds not so disappointing. /Pray for late April

ensuring players have the right amount of information


good. now what about adding "TO ATTACKS" to the "Adds x-y dmg" item mod? imho it is one of the most confusing and incomplete piece of info for new players out there. never figured out the reasoning for not making it clear.
I'll second that. I've introduced several players to this game and that's the biggest bugbear, checking their jewellery and telling them that those mods mean nothing to a caster.
