I couldn't find this with the search function, but I doubt I'm the first one to think about this.
Item creation rules say the price for a wondrous item is 1.5 to have it without slot.
Can I have a few amulet of mighty fists that are slotless? (not two times +1 as that doesnt stack, but 1 for flaming, 1 for +1 and one for shocking for example).
This would tranform a square progression of weapons a linear progression, with the problem that you can only stack a lot of little enchantments, two times +5 is still unbearably expensive.
4 times +1, once with slot = 3*7.5k + 5k = 27.5k
+4 item = 32k
this is the first time it is a better deal than a weapon.
So my questions:
1. is this allowed?
2. is this intended (= balanced)?
3. does this give the long wining monk the edge he needs to kick ass and chew some bubblegum?
Another more concrete example for fun, assuming budget of 200k (+10 weapon):
Or monk can get:
speed with slot: 45k
corrosive burst: 30k
shocking burst: 30k
and still have 5k left which almost gives us .. +1
