Gold Trait 5

0 Replies, 1101 Views

Hey guys! We’d figure we’d get a jump on this a bit early. As you all know, both Main Line and Custom artifacts have 4 Gold Traits players can use during events. By now, all 4 have been unlocked for everyone to use. However, next year we will be unlocking the final and 5th Gold Trait for the artifacts! This is still well off, to be precise sometime in April. But  because we have alot to do next year, the staff figured it would be a good time to start talking about Gold Trait 5.

What is Gold Trait 5?

Gold Trait 5 is the final Gold Trait unlocked for artifacts in Legion. It’s unlocked very early in the Broken Shore storyline and serves as sorta the ultimate amplifier for artifacts.

Players will create their own Gold Trait 5, regardless of type of Artifact.

Yep! You read that right! Both Mainline and Custom Artifact users will be able to make their own Gold Trait 5s! The staff has figured it would be easier and much more beneficial to players if both types could create their final Gold Trait. Creating Gold Trait 5 is similar to creating a Gold Trait for a custom artifact. Main Line Artifacts do have named Gold Traits...but because many of them seem silly, we are allowing players to change the name to something more inline with their artifact. This the application for Gold Trait 5 Below,

Name of Artifact:
Main Line or Custom:
Name of Gold Trait 5(include the original name if you have changed it from a Main Line):

When you're ready, submit this application as a CTS and the staff will look over it and work with you in fully approving it! There is no rush and no deadline for Gold Trait 5. Again we have until April before they start appearing so take your time in crafting it.

How powerful should a Gold Trait 5 be?

Because Gold Trait 5’s are the most powerful an artifact will ever be, it’’s effect should be a game changer in a sense. If Gold Trait 4 is the Artifacts Ultimate Move, then Gold Trait 5 should be the Limit Breaker that goes beyond in power. All Gold Trait 5 abilities  must be Once Per Event. Keep in mind your artifacts history, it’s current set of Gold Traits and the power it has been blessed by when creating Gold Trait 5.
