Forger's Box cancels Chain of Scales buff

yngwe#4411 yngwe Member Posts: 2 Arc User
If I have the buff from the Empowered Chain of Scales active, and use the Empowered Forger's Box, the buff from Empowered Chain of Scales disappears from my list of long duration buffs.
The same is true in reverse, the Chain of Scales will cancel the Forger's Box buff.

    Tried this with Tymora's Coin. It also cancels Chain of Scales and vice versa. I have 3 item slots, I should be able to use 3 items.

    The items you mentioned are all categorized as Trinket.

    In NW the stackable buffs are:
    All long-term buffs in the game have been grouped into one of seven categories:
    Elixir (eg, Wild Storm Elixir)
    Stronghold Food
    Event Food
    Event Item (eg, the Scrolls of Fate from Winter Event)
    Trinket (eg, Tymora's Lucky Coin)
    A player may now have at most one buff in each category active at one time

    3 items: heal option (pot or stone), buff potion, and trinket. Or some variation thereof.
    I'm not looking for forgiveness, and I'm way past asking permission. Earth just lost her best defender, so we're here to fight. And if you want to stand in our way, we'll fight you too.

    you really dont want to be using the chain of scales.
    one of its primary buffs is to 'combat awareness', which hasnt been a stat since 23 april 2019.it doesnt increase awareness, it instead buffs a non existant stat.

    In my potion slot I keep health potion/stone, alliance battle horn(4k power+AP gain), and my forgers box. All three can be used together.
