Bleh...stupid Anya.

So this Anya girl can scribble your name into something...yay. Not much of a reward to most and since it more or less ruins set/uniques for collectors, I never used it. But now I figured...hey, I have this sweet Enchantress who's using some nice runeworded equipment....Brighid's Passion, Brighid's Sanctuary and Brighid's Kingslayer does have a nice ring to it...
So I set out and take the detour to Nihlathak and smack him down (way too easy with Teleport and 5-6k Enchant damage). And what does Anya do? She scribbles my Enchantress' name in the wrong place...well thanks alot Anya!

Sanctuary
Brishid's Hyperion

Doesn't look too cool...so much for that quest reward.

What about her other quest reward, the class specific item? Did anyone ever get anything useful from her? I've never got anything I actually kept.

That is just how I like my personalized runewords to look like. :)

I am grail collector, but I don´t trade. If did trade however, I would not mind having another character´s name on on an item. In fact, I would have liked it. A bit of history behind the item.

I guess taste differs a lot...


Oh yeah, in our Alphabet Tourney, character name and the personalize quest reward are important. :D

I actually think that works pretty sweetly. "'Sanctuary,' Brishid's Hyperion" sounds like something Brishid created, likely the case for a runeword item, and it sounds truly unique. "Brishid's Sanctuary," on the other hand, sounds like it's one of many Sanctuaries, just the one that Brishid happens to own. Both ring true, but to me the uniqueness seems more worth emphasizing.

I know what you mean..I tried to get Mattel's Sanctuary for my pally. Denied. Oh well.. I still like that reward though, it adds a nice flavor to the game to be able to do that.

As for her quest item reward, I have gotten one pally shield that was decent..but that is it, everything else gets sold back to her right after she gives it to me. So, I guess her real reward is 35k gold <g>

I heard of that a long time before I first used the personalize reward, so it was not that surprising to me. I was first a bit disapointed, but if you think about it, "Smoke - Marsa's Archon Plate" sounds even better than "Marsa's Smoke - Archon Plate". I like what SabreCat said, I think it's true - sounds even more 'unique'.

She has given a couple of my barbarians some really sweet helms, although all of them came from Normal and thus usually are only good through mid-Nightmare at most. Definitely keepers for speeding beginning barbs through the boredom of the first half of the game, though.

As for other character classes, I think the term "ugh" says it all. :hanky:

I've gotten a good orb from Anya once. But the best items have been paladin shields. Including this one:

Eagle Tower
Sacred Targe

Durability: 45 of 45
(Paladin Only)
Required Strength: 86

Its pretty much a slightly lower class Alma Negra. Not too bad though at all.

Brighid's Black
Brighid's King's Grace
Brighid's White

And the best:

Heh heh, that's great. Rather like the way the personalize quest works on set items now. Brighid's Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest! This is the Horadric Crest that belonged to my Tal Rasha... ^_^

Hmm...quite funny actually. Baba walks up to Brighid: Hey, I see you have some smokes (Brighid's Smoke), could I borrow one? I'm all out. Thanks. Oh, do you have a lighter? *Brighid pulls out her Phase Blade and Enchants it, holding it up in front of the baba*

Brighid's Famine....well, at least it's clear why she's out in the wild hunting all sorts of creatures, no?

Brighid's Heart of the Oak: I knew there was more to that silly tree that somehow grows scrolls instead of leaves!

Brighid's Breath of the Dying: Brighid walks up to Necro: Hey, people are saying you're a dentist...perhaps you can help me with my little problem...

Brighid's Crescent Moon: Druid in a whiney tone: There hasn't been a full moon in weeks...this is starting to break me up...I need to go out and do some territorial marking, but it's just too dangerous nowadays with all those demons about...what the hell happened to the moon? *Brighid buffs her nails while thinking "Next time think before you call a sorceress as good as me 'Enchant b*tch', furball"*

Brighid's Fury: That time of the month?

Brighid's Leaf and Brighid's Stone: Take some vegetation and a rock and get ready to rumble!

Best item I got from Anya, it was a normal quest and it was so good I personalized it, socketed it with a PDiamond, and upgraded it to exceptional status.

Lorehaedon's Demon Rock
Protector Shield

Defense: 298
Chance to Block: 76%
Smite Damage: 18 to 24
Durability: 39 of 40
(Paladin Only)
Required Strength: 69
Required Level: 34
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 38
Fingerprint: 0xb282cc82
+14 to Life
+100% Enhanced Defense
+25% Increased Chance of Blocking
Fire Resist +59%
Lightning Resist +59%
Cold Resist +59%
Poison Resist +64%
Required Level +5
15% Faster Block Rate
Socketed (1: 1 used)

Resists and over max blocking for shields, too bad it's without +skills. The item level and required clvl seems quite low for me though....I was wondering if it was possible to have this item at such a low ilvl. It's all good anyway, seemed like a hacked item to me when I first saw it :yep:
