I'm starting a list of Wondrous Item that don't function as described, or as the pen and paper (PnP) game. I'll try to keep an alphabetical list in the first post. Any moderator, feel free to edit too. Item's name: details (source) Functions not as Described Bracers of Archery, Lesser: someone proficient gets the bonus, but someone not proficient gains neither proficiency nor bonus Brooch of Shielding -- This stupid item should actually only absorb magic missiles and only 101 points of damage after which it is destroyed. Crap. Cloak of Displacement, Minor: (zugschef in "Top 15 annoyances in ToEE ") Druid's Vestment -- This should provide one additional use of the wildshape ability and not the totally useless (worse than brown and polar bear) hill giant form. This makes it still mostly useless, of course. (zugschef) Horn of Goodness: Since Magic Circle Against Evil doesn't work in the first place... Monk's Belt: usable only by monks (zugschef in "Top 15 annoyances in ToEE ") Necklace of Adaptation: Useless. (gazra_1971 in "Game Guide & Walkthrough [...]") I'll add that a Druid's poison immunity is also useless against Cloudkill. Prayer Beads, Karma: Useless. Does not appear in radial menu, does not have an effect, and it's a reward for saving Thrommel. Vest of Escape -- Who decided that this item should provide freedom of movement? It's the first thing i create for any character who doesn't wear a belt of giant strength. (zugschef) Functions not as PnP Bag of Tricks: It functions once per day and summons decent animals (relative to PnP). In four tries, I got a medium spider, a black bear, a brown bear and a jackal. Helm of Telepathy: Allows wearer to cast Hold Person once per day.
