Exclusive in-game items:
When the Grey Warden Bergen knew he was at the end of his life, he descended into the the Deep Roads joined by a full company of the Legion of the Dead. They slew hordes of darkspawn, clearing tunnels that had been lost for centuries. When at last they fell, a lone dwarf brought back Bergen's helm, as well as his defiant and inspirational tale.
Placement: This is a massive dragonbone helmet. So it's end-game warrior fare. At a good price. Besides Corruption at the end of the game, it should be the best helm available.
Stats: Adds +2 to armour. Adds a lot to physical resistance (+25). Adds to attack (+6).
This staff was held by several senior master conjurers of the Circle Tower, passed down from old master to new. Errant students learned to fear it, for when all other forms of discipline failed, the Final Reason would produce obedience at the cost of significant pain and discomfort.
Placement: This is meant to be useable once the player is at 11+ level. It's price, like all the pre-order items, should be very reasonable. It's meant to be the best staff for the mid-levels of the game.
Stats: Adds to damage. Making it do as much as the Dragonbone staves. Adds considerably to spellpower. Adds a good chunk to fire damage.
Grimoire of the Frozen Wastes
Far north of Orthland lies the Frozen Wastes. In these pages are hundreds of harrowing tales describing how the barbarians survive in their icy homeland. The authors' hope their stories will help readers in their times of need. Or at the least prove entertaining.
Stats: When read adds +3 to a player's attributes.
