Pantheon’s Latest “Parting the Veil” Video Introduces Brilliantly Unique Non-Combat Items
In an effort to make the development process more transparent, Visionary Realms' Pantheon update series entitled "Parting the Veil" dishes out Pantheon goodies aplenty via deep-dives and Q&As. It's a tried-and-tested formula that should go some way to assuring prospective players of its progress. And the most recent edition dropped this weekend.
The weekend's Pantheon update featured a conversation between founder Chris "Joppa" Perkins and content creator Minus, it focussed heavily on some of the game's unique and rare items. And this time, it's not the items used to decimate Terminus's aggressive fauna, but trust us when we say that doesn't mean they're any less interesting.
Of the items that Joppa was willing to reveal, every one had practical uses when exploring Terminus. These included:
The Crown of Illumination - an item used to fend off the kind of magical darkness that conventional torches cannot
The Ring of Anchors - a ring that causes players to sink to the unplumbed depths of bodies of water, providing a measure of pressure protection in the process.
The Boots of Five Feathers - a pair of boots that allow players to levitate.
The Shield of Mirrors - an item that Perkins was reluctant to elaborate on, other than it will reflect "certain effects".
There was also a confusing segment on the 'Skyhold Grappler', which excited many players looking to spider-man their way across the map, but which Perkins stated had been discontinued due to potential game-breaking capabilities. He did hint, however, that a 'broken' form might be attainable when playing, but we'll have to wait and see on confirmation.
As for the rarity of these items, players can expect to jump through certain hoops in order to obtain them. These will include typical mechanics such as completing epic quests and rare drops. But it will also include "being in the right place at the right time", a mechanic that Joppa admitted might be controversial, but helps to bring about the feeling of a living, breathing world.
The Pantheon update dove into a few more aspects, including how different classes can wield their abilities in aid of others to boost exploration. So to gem up on the latest in Pantheon, check out the full thing on their YouTube channel.
