Hey guys (and possibly gals)
We just finished Act 1 but I have a question. Our OL has the Staff of Shadows and it's brought up a question. You see, the staff of Shadows doesn't have a weapon type on it and it doesn't look like it has any attack dice, so, is this a weapon that the OL has to equip on one of his lieutenants or is it an item he can always have in play and use when he wants?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. We just lost the Shadow Rune and we're outmatched. I'm playing a necro and let me tell you, that rune would have been Very useful, looks like I'll just keep on killing with my Reanimate (Spencer) whom the OL Hates with a passion.
None of the Overlords versions of Relics have a weapons type on them. It is as Lega said, every lieutenant can wield any up to 1 relic.
But I don't know if lieutenant wielding a relic was defeated and then reinforced does he returns wielding his relic?
We've been playing it this way. To us it looked logic that a reinforced lieutenant didn't loose his "weapon" (relic) when reinforced. The phrasing: If a lieutenant wielding a relic is defeated during a quest, the abilities of that relic are ignored for the remainder of the quest but the overlord keeps the relic. Looks like this is only relevant when the lieutenant can't be reinforced. That way you can't use a relic when the lieutenant is dead.
