I recently spent several hours researching what adornments I wanted to put on my new gear. This required going to multiple pages on multiple sites and manually calculating all the information I needed to know about adornments. This led me to think, there has to be a better way.
What resulted from that thought was Dethdlr’s Adornment Calculator. Details after the break.
For each slot there is a drop down list for the white and yellow adornments that lets you easily pick which adornment you’d like. Once you select the ones you want, scroll down and click Calculate.
Depending on what you selected, you are presented with the name of each adornment, where to get it, what faction level you need, a link to the item on Zam, and the in game item link that can be copy/pasted into the game. It will also show you which stats are effected, how many of each type of shard you need, and what raw transmuted materials you need to make the adornments you selected.
It includes links to the DoV yellow adornments as well as the SF adornments for those who prefer to browse the full details prior to choosing. There is a lot of information out on adornments. This attempts to bring all that together in one place that is easy to use. If nothing else, it’s at least going to help me pick my own adornments. Right now, it doesn’t include the red adornments but I may add that if there is enough interest.
I see there is a change coming in GU60 for the adornment system but don’t yet know what those changes will be. I’ll update this system once it goes live if there are changes that need to be made.
Let me know if you find it useful.
Update: Non-class specific, non-raid dropped red adorns have been added.
Update: Class specific raid dropped red adorns have been added. Details here.
Update: Added a section with the text names of the white adornments to make it easier to send to crafters.
Update: Changed the name from “Dethdlr’s Adornment Selector” to “Dethdlr’s Adornment Calculator” since that seems to be what everyone is calling it anyway.
Update: Fixed a bunch of bugs and added a second white adornment dropdown for each slot to handle the newer items that have multiple white slots. If you are using a two hander with three white slots, just use one of the secondary dropdowns for the third slot and be sure not to choose casting speed since that doesn’t work on a primary slot item.
