Are you building a GenCon warband?
There is one last thing that you need to know.
The Items Compendium, which will be released tomorrow, will be legal for GenCon. I am not certain it is going to have any game-breaking pieces in it, but, I can preview a little bit here.
The old sets are included (Treasure Trove, Drow's Fortune, Epic Arcana). However, some costs have changed. Heck, some keywords changed. So look at them again.
The half set that was promo'ed last year at GenCon is filled out and included. (The Outfitter's Shop)
There are two complete new sets.
Alchemy and Shipwreck.
There are new kinds of items, as well. And even one specifically for Beholders. (Alchemy has Beholder Eye Mastery).
So, I'm going to guess that for most people, a minimum of 33ish new items, and maybe closer to 40 or 45 if you include exiting but tweaked items.
I realize this sets challenges to get a warband together in time.
This is, not surprisingly, intended. Good luck, and lets find out who this year's best players really are.
