Here’s something for the cabinet of curiosities: Open your collection ingame and browse to the Token of Chromatic Storm. Read the tooltip of the elemental effects, strip all your gear and read the tooltip again. You will notice that the values have changed. It’s because the effects of the Artifact scale with a character’s stats.
Ambush Drake, Token and Dragon Cultist
This phenomenon has been described and documented by Sharpedge in his “Almost Everything CW Guide“. In the buff section he lists three debuffs that scale with stats. The Token scales off the character’s stats, the Ambush Drake and Repentant Dragon Cultist off the companion’s stats. Players can effectively get way better debuffs than intended using these items. The Token and Ambush Drake might be out of reach for most, but the Cultist can be grinded in the Well of Dragons and could suddenly become a very valid option for some.
It’s admittedly not as much of a severe gameplay issue, but don’t be surprised to find these items in high end groups that like to max efficiency just for the sake of it.
