Sale: Radiant Strongbox of the Inventor - 23/12/16
23.12.2016

Dear Sarnaut,

The crown jewel of Sarnautian combat engineering – the Assault Shell – has had a priceless new model inserted into the collection – the Assault Shell "Vanguard"!

This pristine power suit is choc full of gadgets and technical wizardry, providing the operator with all manner of beneficial abilities, such as enhanced defences and increased mobility.

Such power cannot be handed out lightly, hence the schematics for this breakthrough have been safely locked away within the Radiant Strongbox of the Inventor, on sale from the 23rd to the 30th of December.

Wearing an Assault Shell (old or new) prevents the wearer from taking fall damage, operates at functional speeds even when submerged, and can even be equipped when 'knocked out of the saddle'.

Its portable barrier generator can be used to absorb damage taken by allies, and if a battle doesn't go according to plan, the Shell also has an inbuilt emergency repair feature that will restore 50% of its health instantly, at the cost of a repair kit. Lastly, there are multiple handbooks available that help incorporate even more functionality into your Assault Shell.

As the pinnacle of engineering, it provides its owner with reliable protection and additional possibilities in battle:

Shock Wave Assault Shell's giant fists hit the ground, knocking down all enemies within a 5 yard radius. Cannot affect target(s) more than once every 60 seconds.
Assault Shell When your health drops below 50%, Assault Shell starts absorbing 50% of the incoming damage. This effect fades if the shell is destroyed.
Emergency Repair After activating this ability, 50% of Assault Shell's health is instantly restored. It consumes 1 Emergency Battery.

Radiant Strongboxes of the Inventor have a chance of providing a complete, battle-ready Assault Shell "Vanguard", as well as useful handbooks that provide suit-operators with even more armour abilities.

Almost all of said handbooks can be converted or combined into versions of higher quality, into Scrolls of the Commander (of same quality), or parts of the Assault Shell itself. When right-clicked, scrolls will open an option panel that will ask if you wish to consume the item, or convert it into something else.

Don't let anything go to waste!
