HA! I was right!

Riot FeralPony has posted on PBE forums changes to items they're planning. Some of them are extremely similar to my concepts, some solve the same problems, but differently. Let's check those out:

(NEW) Aether Wisp item Aether Wisp

This item seemed a very logical component piece for the two current AP & MS items (LB and TS) as well as a good building block for future items.

It's very similar to my concept, although my version built out of Blasting Wand item Blasting Wand. This one is accessible earlier, but still builds into Twin Shadows item Twin Shadows and Lich Bane item Lich Bane.

The list goes on, though:

(NEW) Forbidden Idol item Forbidden Idol

This is my Meki Pendant item Meki Pendant with 1 more mana regen and more balanced pricing. As in my project, it builds into Morellonomicon item Morellonomicon and Talisman of Ascension item Talisman of Ascension. They consider making Will of the Ancients item Will of the Ancients build out of it as well if the version with Fiendish Codex item Fiendish Codex in it turns out to be too strong.

Last, but not least:

(Rework) Aegis of the Legion item Aegis of the Legion

(Rework) Locket of the Iron Solari item Locket of the Iron Solari

This is a bit different solution to what I had in mind - my idea was to drop the price tier from 1900 to 1500, they kept the tier by replacing Null-Magic Mantle item Null-Magic Mantle with Negatron Cloak item Negatron Cloak. A little bit too similar to Spectre's Cowl item Spectre's Cowl, IMO, but what do I know. The main idea of removing one of Aegis' components was kept, though.

Expect the rest of the series to respond to those changes.
