With our blacksmith complete and our weapon smithing skills up to par, we discover that our precious jewel is a potent source of latent essence that we can use to bolster our power! Grateful to have uncovered its purpose, we’re faced with yet another decision - what do we make with this gem?

What should we do with the jewel?

    The one with the sword was responsible for chasing down the rogue and recovering the gem, so... they should probably get the weapon.

    Many can use a Sword, but fewer a bow. The Blacksmith will be able to sell the sword with more ease.

    A Mighty Staff of Power would be a better choice.
    Sword almost as good.
    Most people never listen. They are just waiting on you to quit making noise so they can.

    The gem was orange!!
    That's not a dexterity colour.
    I wish I were deep and tragic
  • Not sure how useful a blacksmithed bow would be, so am going for the sword.

  • Who would ask a Blacksmith to make a bow for them? :#

    >>>>>I think the sword is a better option<<<<<

    Woodsman > lumberyard > bowyer for a bow, surely? although the Blacksmith may be of use casting arrowheads.

  • I will sacrifice my bow for the new bow! (as long as I get it, of course)

    Since this is a science node may I just say Spring Steel Crossbow from the blacksmith please... That would hit like a truck... ;):D:p

    Also the fact that our very first decision on this journey was to travel AWAY FROM THE TREES means our wood options are pretty limited :[
    And y'know... metal in the mines of the mountains.

    I just makes more sense.

  • As a weird ranger + smith player, I vote bow.

    But, what's "latent essence" supposed to mean?
  • T ElfT Elf Member, Braver of Worlds
    I would rather have the gem on a wearable piece of gear, so that if I switched weapons or got disarmed, I'd still have the benefit of the gem.

  • It would be amazing if I could create a Chef's Knife.
    A sword is nice, but with delicious food, one can bring peace in the world, or even conquer it. :*

    The essence is what helps shape what could be considered magic on Verra. It seems like perhaps you've found a boon that was just waiting for its power to be unlocked!

    I mean, part of the problem is that we know listening to you will lead to building a necropolis and swearing allegiance to someone questionable.

    Just sayin' :p

    The "care bears" led us a stray. Better to be feared then loved.
    I agree with Nagash to a point we should have burned them all so can't come back as a zombie.
