We found the random item design 71 today

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Boots of levitation, which grants a flying trade.


Is this really meant to be permanent? It feels quite overpowered, especially since I just bought winged boots and a jump enhancement and now could have had a much better outcome for less...

yes their effect is a permanent passive ability. They are pretty expensive and doesn't grant any extra movement but they are well worth it.

Yeah, well, I paid 70 for less.

On the other hand, I'm not sure if my Mindthief would be comfortable flying.

The moment I unlocked those, I got them onto my characters ASAP. Worth it alone just to turn traps into a completely positive thing.

Enhancements are MUCH more expensive than items with similar power. That's intentional. If you are just trying to get the most for your cash, you would usually completely deck out with the best items before buying any enhancements.

Yeah, I did this. Unfortunately, the boots didn't unlock until right after I used the enhancement...

Enhancements don't take up item slots, so you can use a jump-enhanced card together with boots of striding to jump extra far, for example.

Yeah, I know. Unfortunately, both Boots of Striding are already gone in our group. In the end, the enhancement is still nice as a legacy to future generations. It was just really unfortunate that we found the item 71 right after the enhancement because I would have preferred it. But that's just bad luck.
