Thanks for putting these up Shadow. Some interesting reads to say the least.

Can anyone provide some insight as to why these books have multiple Battleforges?  I have long been under the impression that the action advantage is very useful early game when equipping up, but the later in the game the less equipment you have left to put on, and the fewer turns there will be for the forge to repay the mana you've invested.

Also, Shad0w, thanks for putting these up and I hope you feel better soon!

That's a very good question I was wondering myself. Battleforge is cool, but I've never seen more than one in a book. Interesting idea anyway.

On an unrelated note I put an Etherian Lifetree in my Beast Master book tonight. Worked pretty good so thanks.

The reasoning I've heard for including multiple Battle Forges in a build is to have a backup in case their opponent focuses it down within 1-2 rounds.

Exactly. Not everyone has conquest of kumanjaro. Without that expansion, no intercept, except for Togorah.
