    I am hunting in Shame and literally have no clue what is good and bad loot...

    I know that *Cursed, brittle, cannot be repaired* are trash to be recycled, but what is the good stuff? what should i be looking out for?

    I think there are 3 main categories that make the loot from the new system good.

    1. Properties not available though imbuing.
    2. Individual properties that exceed the imbuing cap.
    3. Combined properties that exceed the overall imbuing cap.

    Of course property combination of the above are subject to templates and the end users needs to truly determine it's value.

    Guess I'm different, I enjoy outfitting as I go. Cursed, brittle, etc etc dont matter to me, as long as they aren't -luck. As long as the mods are good, the resists excellent, roll with em. I usually loot out enough good stuff to keep a spare on me at all times, the rest is excellent unravelling material :p

    Really? I refuse to use any of that garbage.. if it's cursed most especially... I can just imagine now in the middle of an EM event and some critter loots my corpse steals half my freaking armor and as usual the occursed thing goes public long before I can get a freaking rez and get my crap back.... spend the rest of the night with 1/2 my suit gone????? NO THANKS.

    The only thing that crap is good for is Relic Frags.

    I'm not about to waste my time with it. I spend too much time as is with other things to have to worry about regathering crap for my armor all the time.

    Agreed 100%.

    All that stuff goes straight to the unravel bag.

    If you're training, cannot be repaired, brittle and luck -100 items are golden. Abuse them until they break. They're often so much better than the ones without negative mods and will allow you to fight things a bit out of your league.
    My main warrior is now fully trained and his armor is fully composed of cannot be repaired and brittle gear. So far, they have served me very well.

    Usually, I don't use cursed items, but I am slowly changing that. There are some real nice cursed pieces out there.

    LOL point being, they're free, they're easy, and it really doesnt cost anything to toss an extra in your pack, just in case.

    And at Champ Spawns the spawns disappear quickly. For example: In Illshnar if something loots your bag by the time you get back the creature is not only killed but its' corpse is gone. It would help if these creatures had a 5 minute timer, once they looted your item and then were killed, the 5 minute timer would come on and if the items were reclaimed, the spawn would decay.

    The way it is now though, by the time you get a rez and get back all those corpses are gone.

    I think the only thing that is worth using right now are the weapons but I still need to test them. It will probably come down to just burning them and making imbued weapons. Your goal should be to hope for something that isn't cursed or brittle and can be repaired but is also better than can be imbued.

    So, we should actually see comparable pieces and some of the caps should be higher so the chance of finding something you can not imbue is possible.
