Nah. It'll be something at least moderately interesting instead of an enhanced version of an existing mitigation/avoidance artefact. Buckawns is a dumb mechanic as is.
Tecton, the Terraformer has bestowed His divine favour upon you. It will last for approximately 1 Achaean month.
Gonna tell us your rejected designs once you get one approved Daeir? I would be interested in knowing what they consider terrible ideas and what they don't.
the Eye of Ashaxei (2000cr)
Named for the late mother of all Greater
Dragons, this potent relic of the Parthren Gare bears but a pale shadow of the
power of its namesake.
You must be a Greater Dragon to make use
of this artifact. If you are not, it will do nothing.
The Eye will grant you the means to
DRAGONBOND to another adventurer who is in lesserform, who shall become your
Rider, an imitation of the ancient legacy of Han-Tolneth.
Once bonded, you may draw upon the power
of the Eye to change your brood lineage to that of the White, giving you
significant bonuses in Greater Dragon form, but preventing you from returning
to lesserform until the bond is dissolved, no earlier than 24 hours at a
You may freely switch your bond between
other adventurers after a 24hr period has elapsed without losing the bonuses of
the Eye, so long as you do not lesserform.
The Eye confers the following benefits to
the Dragon while bonded, regardless of whether you are in the company of your
rider or not:
* 5% increased unblockable damage
reduction, scaling up to a maximum of 20% over time. Each Achaean month
that you remain empowered by the Eye, you will gain 2% unblockable damage
reduction, scaling up to a maximum of 20%. This does not stack with Algiz.
Dissolving your dragonbond or entering lesserform will reset this bonus to the
* Attacks that require use of summoned
breath will not deplete said breath when used.
* Elder White Dragons may summon any
elemental breath that they wish at any time, balancelessly if they have the
Mighty Lungs trait.
* Dragonflex no longer requires
balance or equilibrium to use, but can only be used while not weakened or
* All physical Dragoncraft abilities
(Gut, Rend, etc) will strike 10% faster.
* Incantation will ignore magical
* So powerful is the enhanced breath
of the White that your draconic Storm will supersede any existing storms in the
room. [Adds a silent low chance for some elemental breaths (blue, silver,
red) to cause a change in the local area's weather. Blue would cause
snowstorms, silver would cause lightning storms and rain, red would cause
embers to fall from the sky]
* Your appearance will change to
reflect your newfound lineage.
* White Dragons may pierce the Veil to
arrive directly in their Rider's location, no matter where they might be - as
long as they are in lesserform.
The Rider may CLIMB ATOP their bonded
Dragon ONLY IN LESSERFORM and receive the following benefits:
* The Rider will benefit from the
unblockable damage reduction of the Eye as conferred to the Dragon. This
will not stack with Algiz or other unblockable effects on the Rider.
* Near-permanent affixture to the
White Dragon's entourage, sticky stirrups style. Effects like angel and
baalzadeen beckon, boomerang, shadow vortex, essentially any effect that moves
a character outside of teleportation effects (displace, empress, etc) will not
move the Rider unless it also moves the Dragon. Similarly, any teleportation
effect that moves the Dragon will also move the Rider as well. The Rider will
follow the Dragon into flight atop their back.
* Most physical attacks targeted at
the Rider will be intercepted partially by the Dragon. (Permanent Defend
type effect for the Rider while mounted on the Dragon.)
* Your Dragon companion may choose to
COIL PROTECTIVELY around you, taking ALL damage that you would’ve otherwise
taken from external sources for 5 seconds.
* If a denizen would target the Rider,
it will strike at the Dragon instead most of the time. (Not applicable to
* The Rider may utilize the Trample
and Intimidate abilities while atop a Dragon, even if the Dragon is off
balance, so long as they are not prone. Intimidate will never fail against
any steed lower than a legendsteed, and will succeed most of the time against
All Rider inherited bonuses are cancelled
temporarily if the Dragon or the Rider is suffering from the Selarnia
Attempting to pierce the Veil with a
Rider mounted atop your back will work, but will deposit the bonded pair at
Ashaxei's Mirror instead of the Parthren Gare.
tl;dr: fuckheug dragonform buffs in exchange for not being able to lesserform and quasi bloodsworn required to access itI'm also pretty sure like half the women that play Achaea would drop bux for a Hiccup artefact on demand.
Can't be a white dragon.
so why not change it to not include white dragon, if that's the only reason

The 20% unblockable damage resist on the tankiest class/race in the game and the 10% balance buff to physical dform abilities and the no-breath thing definitely had nothing to do with it.Definitely. I think you could make no-breath use its own 2k artefact and it'd be worth it. Probably an equivalent DPS boost to a Lupines anyway.
