Sounds like they just copied the gimmick of the Thulecite Crown, which arguably is a handicap seeing as it drains sanity. Which is a potentially huge problem in combat since shadows will just become the third wheel.

 

How about a bone staff which lets you resurrect skeletons as minions. Would be a great method to segway into adding Wilton into the game, who could reanimate skeletons as minions normally. Fun minions though, not like Abigail the combat babysitter and Spiders for Spider War fodder.

Or the staff could spawn in existing shadow creatures as minions.

 

Basically, anything other then combat equipment which provides nothing but more combat efficiency.

New armor but no new weapon? Wolfgang can't fight without new weapon!

The game already has tons of viable weapons.

 

The hambat.

The spear.

The battle spear.

 

Three is enough for a sandbox game, right.

@The Curator you cant go wrong with more weapons no?

The faces of my enemies must be smashed in with new weapon!

Things that screw with the game are a good reward for end content.

 

Ones that turn enemies into temporary allies.

Spawn minions.

Make you temporarily invisible.

Generate turrets.

Ranged weapons that do not suck.

 

If you have already beaten some of the strongest things in the game to acquire an item, the last thing that item should be focused on is making you more generically powerful. That accomplishes nothing but making the player more immersion-breakingly-overpowered.

As if Wolfgang, Maxwell, Wigfrid, WX78 and Wickerbottom are not already.

Eh, the Thulecite Crown I would argue is actually a great piece of armor. It's saved me from getting killed multiple times due to the fact it negates stunlock and has gotten me out of some rather terrifying situations. The sanity drain is negligible and easily dealt with similar to Night Armor. Besides, sanity isn't all that important, if you don't want shadows trying to kill you chuck a few cooked green caps in your mouth.

The armour can:

  Hide contents

Be refueled with nightmare fuel to increase durability by 25%.

Does not break at 0%.

Makes you take 0% damage for 10 FRAMES every 5 seconds.

Takes 1 second to allow the shield to be activated when equipping or putting fuel in from 0% durability.

I'd say it's the best chest armour in the game.

Oh people of little faith, remember to thank Klei for these interesting things.

Though now I'm curious to see how things go as well. Also, nice new details in the fight, especially when it comes to camera locking for key moments.

It has 16 hits and loses 6-7% durability per hit!

This means it is only meant for boss fights, it would be a waste if you use it on bees or pigs etc.

Personally I'd give it to the local Waxwell the Paper to become Waxwell the God.

Well, it can be repaired with Nightmare Fuel, which you get a TON of from the Fuelweaver fight anyways.  Plus NF is pretty easy to get once you have your sanity under control, so I think it's decently balanced.
