I've a few suggestions for new items that could be added to the game that would be useful to new players who don't have lots of gold. After hitting 40 recently and building up my gear and using the web item search tools (which are amazing btw), there were some gear gaps I found between what I wanted an what I could get. They are just listed alphabetically, the two needed most (I suggest) are the Scout Special and then the Reinforced construction. Armor Plating Mostly fine, though there is only 1 line of sight item that is hard to get, maybe add a new one that is accessible Cloth Armor Ok options on health, armors, dmg, line of sight isn't too bad, move speed ok too. For villagers there is the 3.5% wood one from Northern Hold, but could add a 4-5% food gathering one perhaps. Construction Addition Good options for training, build time, line of sigh. Only one that could be improved is maybe the cost ones, maybe add an easy to get one at -6% cost Merchant Gear Fine, though the line of sight one from Respectable Rare Ramparts is harder to get when visit friend is disabled. Reinforced Construction Good options for HP and Dmg, but for the other wanted stats there are big gaps. Line of sight: the epic is extremely rare, and legendary expensive, could use a shop/recipe item with maybe 35-40% Line of Sight as nice option for new players. Cost: Only option outside of the Legendary is the -1.3% lvl 15 item from Sparta shop, that's what I'm currently using for most buildings. Could use a shop/recipe item with maybe -4% cost. Build time: the epic is extremely rare, and legendary expensive, could use a shop/recipe item with maybe -4% build time. The legendary combines cost and build time, having two separated for new players, -4% on each, would be nice stepping stone items. Scout Special Really needs an accessible lens, something at 40% LOS would be fine Solider's Gear Mostly ok, for a cheaper Ramses option we have lvl 38-39 Odysseus in trade and as backstop there is the lvl 20 Mycenaean gloves, but perhaps a lvl 30 shop/crafted version would be nice Sword Mostly fine, the line of sight swords take a bit of saving to get, but are not bad All the other slots were fine, in my opinion. One other thing to note, without the web search tools its hard to get an handle on what items are available in the game, for example there were lots of good choices from shops or crafting, but without going outside the game and searching it was hard to know that. Changes to this are probably not easy or practice for a fan project game, but perhaps links to the search tools could be make displayed in the launcher, or a tooltip when loading, so users learn that they have somewhere they can go look.
