I just finished an LFR mod that granted a Level 4 item or less of my choice from Adventurer's Vault.
I have my eye on a few items, but I'm more curious in hearing about your recommendations from that book, if you've been in this situation. Maybe you found a killer item that no one thought about; brag away!
The other choices were an Amulet of Protection +2, or a Vicious Weapon +2. Both are nice, but this character is L1, so I'm not inclined to take either of those. Maybe I should?
My wife is eyeing Eternal Chalk, which would be loads of fun. However, I prefer something with a benefit I will use a lot; ie, a plus to a defense/attack, then Properties, then Encounter Powers, then Dailies.
