Artifact sheaths/scabbards.

ValdusValdus AustraliaMember Posts: 598 ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
So, I was talking with @Melodie about getting a couple of sheaths and customizing them, along with making them non-decay. She let me know that unfortunately, you can't have them non-decay and then put Stasis on them, which is a pretty standard thing for stuff like sheaths, belt loops and so forth.

So, I thought it'd be awesome to have an artifact sheath you can purchase that, by virtue of being an artifact, is non-decay and can then be customized and enchanted with stasis. The Stasis effect would have a timer on it, requiring it to be renewed when it runs out, but would allow a person to continue to customize their characters attire and accessories.

This isn't gamebreaking, as we are already permitted stasis scabbards/belt loops, but is purely for cosmetic stuff.

I'd buy two!

Viva la Bluef.

    Either this, or making the enchantment itself fade (lasting just long enough that any decaying scabbard will decay first, or only fading from nondecay items if that's possible) so it can be put on any nondecay/resetting scabbards without affecting the enchantment market.

    You can't enchant a non-decay scabbard? I know you can't go the other way (making an enchanted item non-decay), but last I checked you could enchant non-decay items (such as putting waterwalking on non-decay boots). Did that change, or is stasis an exception?

    From what I understand it's actually impossible in some form - maybe the item doesn't enchant if non-decay or something? I'm not exactly sure but I was told this was a thing, and by fact I've never seen/heard of anything with it after all this time, I assumed it was true.

    As I understand it, you can't enchant on customized items. Artefacts are fine. I'm not 100% sure but I think it's also doable to just have an enchanted item first and then have it customized.

    This is a new one on me.  I have enchanted a few scabbards and had them made non-decay.  Didn't know this was against the rules, but it was approved twice for me. 

    Edit: do an issue me.  I am going to feel bad if the people I sold them to get retroactively nerfed.

    Right, you can't make an enchanted item non-decay, but last I checked, enchanting non-decay items was fine; the order matters.

    Did you enchant them before making them non-decay? I was under the impression that was mechanically impossible.

    Put up the godsignal!

    Also, huh, as an occultist I'd never considered that blademasters and such would get their sheathes enchanted with stasis, although that does make perfect sense in hindsight, especially if you got a sword name you wanted to keep for as long as possible.

    Luckily for Blademasters, an artefact band also non-decays the sword, which makes it less of an issue down the road for them. Not so luckily for knights, serpents and others who want an interesting sheathe of sorts, still an annoying issue.

    Forged from a single piece of unsullied meteoric taenite, this thin scabbard bears the metal's unique patterning, with thousands of grey-black and dull white nickel-iron crystals interlacing and intertwining within the metal's internal structure, creating a distinct linear mottling that appears to shift when the scabbard is in motion. The throat of the scabbard is comprised entirely of watered steel, with the 
    adjoining chapes expertly pressed into the stylised pattern of a crow's wing, each tiny feature bearing lifelike inscriptions of a feather's veinwork in alluvial silver. Oiled grey ennelin fur lines the inside of the scabbard, bound to the body with small platinum rivets. Thin platinum banding periodically binds the width and length of the scabbard, masterfully inlaid into the taenite structure and adorned with cobalt-hued etching depicting a tempestuous gale. Two small lengths of grey iron chain run from the middle and the lip of the scabbard, attached to a austere brass chain belt lined with black leather, its utilitarian design suggesting that it exists primarily to support the 
    nominal weight of the scabbard on the waist.
    It weighs about 1 pounds and 5 ounce(s).
    It bears the distinctive mark of Daeir.
    A mottled taenite and platinum scabbard is holding:

    It contains a total of 1 items of a max of 1.

    Could have changed with the automation of non-decay customisations.

    I had recently issued myself about non-decay scabbards and stasis when Kadin made the class change to runewarden. I knew about the rule of not being able to non-decay a scabbard that already has stasis on it, so I asked if it was allowed to put stasis on a scabbard that was non-decay before the enchantment. The reply I got said no, it is not allowed to work in either scenario. I don't have the message anymore, but I think I forwarded it to Kadin so I can maybe ask for him to check later when he comes back around.

    So, we've established that these would be an awesome idea and that there's definitely a market for them!

    Make it so @Tecton!

    I would have thought that the "no enchanted items" would apply to created items like NoP, bags of status, sigils, etc.

    I see no reason why any non decay item wouldn't take an enchantment. It should just have a 100 month lifespan (iirc) just like water walking on Dex boots.

    Dunno if actual artefact boots are different from tailored boots customised with non-decay, but the waterwalking enchant on mine (tailored, customised) hasn't faded since I got it 2-3 RL years ago.
