Survivor Magic Jewelry (PART II)- SCARAB OF PROTECTION WINS!

lowkey13

I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
This thread is inspired by the prior threads on the iconic monsters, best cannon fodder, and so on. Most importantly, while I can't make a list of magic item prices, at least we resolve which magic items are the BEST!

That's right- we are going to find out what magic jewelry is the greatest! Yeah, that's right. Talismans and bracers and amulets.... OH MY! Because there were so many, it had to be split into two parts... and this is PART THE SECOND!

This is a list of magic jewelry (wondrous items) from 5e, culled solely from the DMG/SRD.

IMPORTANT NOTE- DOWNVOTES ARE 2 IN THIS THREAD.

REPEAT- DOWNVOTES ARE TWO IN THIS THREAD.

Each item starts with 20 points and you vote for one item you like which gets 1 point and an item you dislike which loses 2 points. It is intentional that a negative vote is worth more than a positive vote- first, because we don't want to be here all year. Second, because.

Upvotes are in green, downvotes are in in red (unless you are on your phone, and are unable to, in which case please indicate your votes some other way). Copy and paste the previous posters vote and change the numbers. You may vote once per day. This is an honor system, and we are all honorable gamers; please do not abuse it. If this means you vote once at night one day, and once the next morning - that's fine, but don't vote again until the following day.

This is purely a popularity contest and you do not have to explain an upvote or downvote, but feel free to- explanations are where the fun is! When downvotes reach 0 the item is eliminated (FATALITY!). Finally, if an item has one vote left, then you have to make the choice to use all of your downvotes to eliminate it; there is no vote splitting. In addition, you must split your vote- you can't upvote and downvote the same item (no "see" votes). And you have to use BOTH YOUR UPVOTE AND DOWNVOTE if you vote.

Some important points that you must read before voting-
1. This is a pure popularity contest, and is meant to be fun. You can cast your votes for whatever reason you want. Spite, irrational love/hate, strategic voting, and voting just because you love talismans (YOU REALLY LOVE TALISMANS) is totally fine! This vote does not affect anything in real life, and no item will be removed from 6e's DMG because of your vote. You can comment for the reasons for your vote, or not- up to you! But this is for enjoyment only.

HA! WHO AM I KIDDING! YOUR VOTE WILL DETERMINE IF JEWELRY IS ENTIRELY PHASED OUT FOR HATS. DON'T BE THAT GUY!!!!!!!!!


2. This is the list of magic items that are presented officially in the DMG in 5e. If you don't have a copy of all of the WoTC books, you can find it many places, including:

https://donjon.bin.sh/5e/magic_items/

Of course, if you don't have a copy of the books, GET THEM NOW! Really, they're good books.

As always, the list is the list, please do not alter it.

3. To repeat what was in 2- this is DMG only, and wondrous items only. If you're curious about close calls, then-
Ioun Stones? Jewelry, as are bracers and circlets.
If it's a "combo item" (Ioun Stones, for example) it is listed ONCE, not multiple times.
"Eyes" are jewlery, but goggles were in a different round. REASONS.
Bands and shackles? Not jewelry (but hot?).

Also? This is part 2 (Ioun Stone - Talismans). Part 1 (Amulets - Gems) was already done.

4. Prior winners for the combined SUPER CHAMPION ROUND:
Wand: Wonder
Ring: Feather Falling
Magic Armor: Elven Chain
Rods & Staves: Staff of the Magi
Potions: Potion of Vitality
Sword: Frost Brand
Non-sword Weapon: Mace of Disruption
Clothing (Part I): Robe of the Arch Magi
Clothing (Part II): Helm of Comprehending Languages
Jewelry (Part I): Amulet of the Planes


Katana Nope. Katana ain't no proof against anything.


DOWNVOTES ARE TWO.

All you anti-Ioun stone people are an abomination! Have you not read your Jack Vance and appreciate the history of this game and the influence Vance had on it? Abomination I say! You're antivancians! :)
