    Default Stoneskin still available for scouts, item still in game!

    A named in Karnor's castle used to drop the Ancient Runed Bracers of Diffusion. This item is useable by every class. The developers, seemingly not wanting this, created a new item called "Runed Bracers of Diffusion" useable by only mages, bruisers, and monks. This named now drops the new bracers, only useable by those classes.

    This is all well and good, except for the fact that now two items exist in this game, and there are still people with the old item, running around using stoneskin proc in pvp, while others can't get the item at all now.

    So if you were lucky enough to get the item before the boss's drop was changed, you get to have a crazy good pvp proc, and everybody else in the game is completely denied from here on out on receiving that item? It seems to me the original item should have just been changed, instead of the developers introducing an entirely new item and keeping the old item in the game.

    If you're going to change the drop from the boss, the old item needs to be erased, or the flags changed as well. It's not fair people having the ability to use stoneskin only because they were lucky enough to get the drop before it was changed.

    lol thats awesome, like the old Guise of the Deceiver or Manastone in EQ1. I wonder if anyone has the old item and didn't attune it, will be worth a fortune.

    They need to do the same thing for this item that they did on the "Forest Giant Trinket" item. They need to change the current item and NOT create a new one.

    The developers need to go in and edit the item "Ancient Runed Bracers of Difussion" and make sure the flags are the same as the "Runed Bracers of Diffusion." This change needs to be retroactive and implemented ASAP to keep non-intended classes from using this item.

    Slyk,

    Will monks and bruisers be able to use it, like the new item?

    Seems wrong that they would have the ability to stoneskin.

    With deflection, it's impossible enough to hit them as it is, let alone adding stoneskin to the mix.

    Should be caster gear only. Why give it to a monk/bruiser?

    Already PM'd him, but never gotten a response. I assume he at least reads them, though.

    That would be good, but did he say anything about also changing the "Ancient" bracers to mage only as well? Or just taking that item completely out of the game? Or is he only talking about the new item that's mage/bruiser/monk only?
