Why is the Sword of Myrloch Vale 50K for a sword +3 with a Lore bonus (???) while the Mace of Black Bess is +3 at only 8K? Some +2 and +3 items seem totally unaffordable and not worth saving for, while others are much more reasonable in the 8K-15K range. I don't get where these numbers came from.
Seems to me, there should be some very rough guidelines, like +2 weapons from 5K to 10K, +3 weapons from 10K to 18K, +4 weapons from 18K to 30K, and +5 weapons around 40K+. Someone should mod some sense into this, at least.
Oh poop, I guess that someone is me.
Okay, fine, easy enough to do. In that case, let's use this thread to decide on the prices. Name an item, tell me what the price should be. Back up your suggestion with some discussion of the item's utility and likely value on the Faerunian magic weapon market. Once there's enough suggestions and some semblance of consensus, I'll release a mod to make it happen.
