Proposal Adventurers Vault
Well it had to come, and personally I am a big fan of the Adventurer's Vault so I thought I would bite the bullet.
I suggest this is something we take out time over. I believe we should come up with a list of potentially problematic items, derived from our own limited experience and from various forum posts, etc., which we can persuse.
Personally I believe that some of the most problematic items are those that have effects which technically do not require the weapon to be used. For example Bloodclaw weapons at will power is simply used on an attack, not an attack with the weapon which I feel it should be rerequired. Personally even with that caveat I still regard Bloodclaw weapons as problematic and worthy of review.Back after a long absence, and feeling rather sheepish.

I'd love to see AV as part of L4E, too.
We should consider two ways of doing this, listing forbidden items, or listing accepted items. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Another thing to consider is to roll out the items in batches - for now we could consider, say, only items level 10 or lower - that should last us quite a while, yes?

I agree double weapons are problematic. Perhaps the easiest solution is to outlaw them, and have them be flavor only (so that a double weapon is simply one main hand weapon and one off hand weapon joined together).

I have a feeling that, due to the sheer number of items in the AV, listing the problematic ones would be better. Most of the items in the book I think are fine, but there are a few problematic ones. I didn't bring my copy with me over the holidays, so I can't really check up on any items I think might be problematic yet. However, there is one set of items that I can remember off the top of my head.
More Problematic Items:
- Double weapons as written.
