Today we’re going to take a look at Items in Conan: Savage Legends.
On the battlefields during the Hyborian Age, it’s always best to be well-equipped, even if you are wading into combat in a loincloth. The weapons, armor, and equipment your Legend brings with them are collectively called Items. Items fall into one of six affinities: Might, Prowess, Cunning, Eldritch, Leadership, and Monstrous. Each affinity has its own specialty. For example, Might Items tend to give you bonuses during a Clash, while Leadership Items tend to give you ways to manipulate or help other characters. Your Legend begins the game with four Items. The Items your Legend may bring are determined by the Legend’s Item slots. For example, let’s take a look at Valeria:
Valeria has two Prowess (blue) Item slots, which must be filled with Prowess Items. Next she has an Item slot that may either be filled with a Prowess or Might (red) Item. Finally, she has an Item slot that may be filled with either a Might or Cunning (green) Item. This gives you a few different ways to play Valeria if you choose her as your Legend. Do you go all-in on Prowess, or add a bit more Might to your arsenal? Do you throw in a Cunning Item to allow her some devious tricks, or focus on pure strength?
Now that we know how Items are selected, let’s have a look at an Item card:
The War Axe’s ability allows you to Exhaust it in order to convert one Rune icon into an Axe icon. When you Exhaust an item, simply turn its card sideways to note that it has been used. At the end of the Round, turn any Exhausted Items upright so that they may be used during the next Round.
The War Axe also has an Upgrade Cost and a Flip symbol. The cost to Upgrade the War Axe is two coins. Once that cost has been paid by placing two coins on the War Axe, flip the card over and it becomes the Cimmerian Axe, shown on the right. This is the side that will be showing once it has been upgraded. Your new and improved Cimmerian Axe allows you to change any result you roll during a Clash into an Axe icon! Upgrading your Items creates interesting tactical decisions during the game as you decide where to spend your coins, and it also allows your Legend to power-up as the game races towards its epic conclusion!
Here are a few more Items that will be available to your Legend:
As you can see, Conan: Savage Legends has a wide array of Items you can use, making for interesting character builds, tough decisions, and brutal combat as you bring all your weapons to bare against your foes!
