This Sat Live Show DDOcast 241 – One Year for Us!

Hey all! Sig and I have been hosting DDOcast for 1 year now! 🙂  Join us as we celebrate in our own modest way.


Upgrading Reaver’s Fate Loot

Stormreaver Monument as of U12

As of Update 12, you can now upgrade named items looted from the raid, “The Reaver’s Fate”. Here’s a simple how to:

  1. Gather Seals of the Stormreaver by running the raid on elite difficulty.
  2. Visit the Stormreaver Monument in Gianthold.
  3. Place the seals and the named items in the Monument to upgrade the named item to a more powerful form.
  4. You can preview the available upgrades by visiting the Monument and clicking the list interface.
  5. IMPORTANT: Items looted before U12 do not have the ability on them to be upgraded, and cannot. BUT you can “fix” them by placing them in a Stone of Change.  This feature is NOT LIVE YET!  but will be in a later hotfix.

Here’s a list of items and what they can be upgraded to:

  • Amulet of the Stormreaver gains Protection +5 and Superior Lightning Resistance
  • Cloudburst gains Lightning Strike
  • Dreamspitter gains Force Burst
  • Gauntlets of Eternity gains Superior Devotion VI, Heal +15, and Repair +15
  • Head of Good Fortune gains Heavy Fortification and Dodge Bonus +2]]
  • Madstone Boots gains Dexterity +6, Superior Potency VII and Striding +30%
  • Madstone Shield gains Improved Bashing and Shield Bashing – 10%
  • Ring of Lies gains Charisma Skills – Exceptional Bonus +1 and Improved Deception
  • Stormreaver’s Napkin gains Spell Penetration VII
  • Tenderizer gains Bone Breaking and Spikes
  • Ventilated Bracers gains Open Lock +5, Disable Device +5, and Armor Bonus +7
