The Design Process of my Ring : Valyrium

Hello fellow Exiles,

I want to write a rather short post about the design process of the upcoming ring "Valyrium - Moonstone Ring".

First of all, some of you probably already realized the art, flavour-text and even the mods are based on "A Song of Ice and Fire" or (for the TV-guys) "Game of Thrones". I've decided to go on with that in mind because i'm a huge fan of both.

Here is a bigger picture of the art itself :

The base material is Damascus Steel (google it up it looks amazing) and it is the model for Valyrian Steel. The Ruby splinters inside the moonstone resembles Fire and Blood, the words of the House "Targaryen".

About the mods: I definitly wanted that Stun Threshold is based on Energy Shield instead of Life and i decided to make it simple so everyone who see's it would know "what to do".
The fire resist thematicly fits with the Valyrian theme and as a drawback i wanted negative cold resist because it just fits with the lore (and you can make up for it with the Amulet slot that you would maybe sacrifice for Eye of Chayula). The additional maximum Energyshield was more like a bonus.

I came up with the flavour-text pretty quickly. "They will rise and fall in Fire and Blood". Again it contains the words of House "Targaryen". The "They will rise and fall" thematiclly fits with the Stun theme this Ring has.

The rolls are pretty straight forward:
Spoiler
+10-20 To Maximum Energyshield
+20-30% to Fire Resist
-40% to Cold Resist
Stun Threshold is based on Energy Shield instead of Life


Thats about it ;). Have a nice day and see you in Wraeclast!

/// Thanks again to Hoargald for letting me design his item and Nick (from GGG) for helping me with the design process! ///

Simple, elegant yet impactful. Not OP, not useless.

Good work. :)

still this does not replace eye of chayula.

its good tho, but high threshold will never beat full immunity.
YES I support the game, NO I dont agree with many GGG decisions
Atlas of Worlds is the worst thing that happen to POE.
Lab still sucks balls.
How long did the design process took?

Sure, but amulet slot is far more valuable. Given how much ES most ES build have, it is still a nice thing to have, I suppose.

Plus, it's common for ES builds to get 10k+ es, which leads to a pretty high stun threshold.

@OP AMAZING Job on the ring. Love the whole theme. I'm also glad that there's finally a thing in the game for "Stun Threshold is based on Energy Shield instead of Life"

Can't wait to see it next patch!
Sure, the lab can be hard, but it's pretty easy if you're properly geared, and not terrible at the game.
thats something ive been missing on my CI builds ;) time to roll something ES-based for next league.
its also good for hybrids i guess?

I think this is not the case, all hybrid builds I played till now will have no real advantage if their stun immunity is based on ES instead of life. But maybe my builds just were bad.
