Sentient Weapon

From DDO wiki

Wikipedia has an article on the same subject:

DDO Forums

Sentient weapons is a mechanic introduced in Update 37 that allows to upgrade weapons with sentience, gaining mechanical benefits (increase to various abilities) and roleplay effects (weapons commenting your actions).

The Sentient Weapon can make comments to the player as the weapon is held and used. There is a Gameplay tab option to turn off voice, text, or both.

Eligible weapons[edit]

Only minimum level 20 DDO Forums or higher named weapons can gain sentience. Crafted / upgradeable weapons are out (most notably Temple of Elemental Evil, Legendary Green Steel, and Thunder-Forged). An item that accepts sentience will say "Accepts Sentience" under its name if you cursor over it. All weapons that you can get from the L20 Cannith Challenge trader have the text "Accepts Sentience" on them (not tested if they actually do and what happens if you upgraded a L16 item to L20).

  • Sentient weapons cannot be placed in your off-hand slot.
  • When a named weapon is unbound (or Bound to Character on Equip but not yet equipped) the item will become Bound to Account if a Sentient Jewel is slotted into it (because Sentient Jewels are Bound to Account).

For the list of Level 20+ named weapons see here: Sentient Weapon/Base item‎.

Sentient Jewels[edit]

Sentient Jewel with 7 filigree slots unlocked
One of the six Sentient Jewels

Jewels are Bound to Account on AcquireBound to Account on Acquire: This item is Bound to Account on Acquire essences that carry the sentience. Slot the jewel to a weapon to awaken its sentience. You can also pry out the jewel out of an existing weapon and transfer it to a different weapon.

Six personalities - Resolute, Inquisitive, Hopeful, Furious, Covetous and Timid.

Slotting a sentient jewel to a weapon does not change the weapon's minimum level. Unbound named items (or Bound to Character on Equip but not yet equipped) become Bound to Account if a Sentient Jewel is slotted into it (because Sentient Jewels are Bound to Account). BtCoA weapons stay BtCoA.

Players can build Sentient XP by feeding named items to their Sentient Jewel. You do this by dragging the item to the appropriate slot in the Sentient Item panel. Each named item will add a number of Sentient XP to the jewel based on the minimum level required to use it. The actual numbers are as follows:

Minimum Level Sentient XP granted
1-20 Minimum Level x1
21-27 Minimum Level x5
28+ Minimum Level x10

For example, a named item with a minimum level of 10 would add 10 Sentient XP, while a named item with a minimum level of 29 would add 290 Sentient XP.

Costs to open slots are as follows:

Total Sentient XP (÷20) (÷125) (÷280)
Sentient Filigree Slot 1 Free
Sentient Filigree Slot 2 2,000 100 16 8
Sentient Filigree Slot 3 6,000 300 48 22
Sentient Filigree Slot 4 12,000 600 96 43
Sentient Filigree Slot 5 20,000 1,000 160 72
Sentient Filigree Slot 6 40,000 2,000 320 143
Sentient Filigree Slot 7 60,000 3,000 480 215

This means that a character will need around 70 named items at top level to reach 5 Filigree slots, and it gets expensive for slots 6 and 7.

All Sentient XP you have gained stays with the Sentient Jewel when you unslot it, and is applied to a new weapon when you slot that jewel into it.

The name of the sentient jewel only pertains to its original personality and does not influence what benefits it will give you. DDO Forums

Where to get jewels[edit]

  • You can obtain an initial Sentient Jewel by speaking to Tobar the Smith, a Vistani Trader inside the Barovia EPIC wilderness area very near the entrance. He will give you your choice of three different Sentient Jewels (Hopeful, Inquisitive, Resolute). Further Sentient Jewels can be found from a variety of different sources unique to the specific sentient jewel.
  • The Sentient Jewel is deliberately not linked to statistical benefit, so players can use whichever personality they would like with whatever Filigree they want. 12-06-2017, 05:16 PM #2

Cordovan

  • A Sentient Jewel can be found in the Epic Ravenloft Saga reward list (Furious).
  • A Jewel can also be found as a Raid reward in the new raids (Covetous).


  • A Jewel of the Timid is available in the Blue Water Inn for Vistani Tokens. (Update 37.1)

Sentience feed[edit]

You can feed any named item that isn't specifically tagged as being worth 0 Sentient XP. The list of ineligible items includes, but is not limited to, the following categories:

  • Items that drop on logout, death, or leaving an area.
  • Items that are destroyed on death or logout.
  • Items that are stackable.
  • Items that cannot be sold to a vendor.
  • Any item with a duration.
  • Any item that is destroyed when it is empty/out of charges.
  • Any item that is locked with the Inventory lock icon.
  • A smattering of individual items which have specifically been decided shouldn't be able to be fed for various reasons (The three Slave Lords blank items that drop like candy and don't ransack for instance)
  • Sentient Weapons will not consume named items with Augments.
  • "Sentient Jewels are able to consume other sentient jewels and gain all the xp accumulated on the jewel consumed. So, you can start feeding the one you don't care about now until you get the one you do want." (cocomajobo, Discord 12-06-17)

See also Sentient Weapon/Non-food.

Sentient Filigrees[edit]

  • Filigree is an augment-like ingredient that you can add to your sentient jewel, assuming you have a free filigree slot.
  • Filigrees go into the augment bag.
  • A weapon can only have one of each Filigree. You cannot slot two of the same Filigree in one weapon.
  • Filigree will have their own rarity. Some sets will be less common than others. In addition, each Filigree has a rare chance to drop as with an upgraded bonus, which has an additional effect on it.
  • Unless specifically noted, all bonuses listed are unique bonuses and stack with everything.
  • A single weapon can benefit from multiple Filigree Set Bonuses simultaneously.
  • Sentient Filigree can be obtained from chests in Ravenloft for now, and could appear in non-Ravenloft chests in the future. Higher difficulty settings have an increased chance to provide Filigree. Filigree is unbound, and can be traded and auctioned.

See available filigrees here: Sentient Weapon/Filigrees‎
