    Haven't heard of anything, but I also haven't been looking for news on runic tinker tools. But what good would a runic be for a tinker?

    Aside from a golem or the couple of knives they can make.

    Thats actually a good point. Untill people have trained Imbuing the Gargoyles will have lower resistances and limited skills compared to the human/elves due to the fact they only get 4 (i think) items of armour.

    From my very limited testing during the open beta, those 4 pieces of armor can have much higher resists - I must have crafted ten or so of each piece, and 75 total resist was pretty much the minimum I got, with a few 90+ pieces.

    But think of the average player that cant make armour with barbed runics and you may agree its a bit of a problem.

    But they would be able to find and use runic tinkering kits? ;)

    Anyway, what I mean is that gm-level gargoyle armor seems to have higher resists, so it should allow for the same overall level with fewer pieces, assuming no BRSK.

    I agree tinkering should receive some love, though - at least make it so "magic" jewelry's properties are somehow related to the skill level, instead of being created with a formula like "intensity level = 1/usefulness - number of properties".

    But tinkers make butcher knives and cleavers too, not just jewelry.

    Two items wouldn't classify as enough to have runics, IMHO - two items AND jewelry does, tho. Even if gargoyle's armor is stronger, yes.

    I'd like to see Tinkers gain the ability to make magical items that are new and different.
    - Crystal Balls of Scrying: Able to "go astral" and travel invisibly and at high speeds, instant teleports per your carried runes, so as to be able to quickly check out places, spy, etc.
    - Spyglasses of Astral Detection: Able to sense the presence of an astrally projected being and glow/ring a sound
    - Flying Bird of Distraction: throw it at something or someone and it distracts them, allowing you to attack it/them while they swat at the mechanical bird.
    - Clock of Times: Allows you to summon as a pet a copy of yourself from the near past
    - Magic Carpets
    - Bottle of Unending Potions: holds something like 10 or 20 potions with the weight of one. Colors to match the potion type held
    - Mirror of Communing: acts like communication crystals, activated by clicking on individual, can be used in conjunction with Crystal Ball of Scrying
    - Pet Collars: gives armor ratings to pets of weaker types

    You get the idea. Some of these could require extremes in rare ingredients, so as to keep them semi rare and of high value. Maybe add some charges to some, breakage to some.
