Wat? These items are nearly identical. Is the 1 ac/1 mana really worth 11 levels?

Again, these items are nearly identical. Is that ANTI_GOOD and 1 less AC really worth _60_ levels?
Or is the level 27 version just old? If the level of an item, its rarity flag, and the improvement
label can't be used to determine the relative power of the item what is their purpose?


Item: 'charcoal black mask leather'  
Weight: 1  Size: 0'10"  Total levels: 30 (and 13 thief)
Type: ARMOR   Composition: HIDE   Defense: 0 ac-apply
Object is:  RARE ANTI_GOOD THIEF 
Wear locations are:  HEAD 
Item has other effects:
Affects:  THIEF_SKILL_LEVEL by 1
Affects:  DAMROLL by 2
Affects:  CAST_ABILITY by -1

A black leather mask has not much room for improvement.


Item: 'black assassin's mask assassin leather '  
Weight: 1  Size: 0'10"  Level: 27  (you can't use this yet)
Type: ARMOR   Composition: HIDE   Defense: 1 ac-apply
Object is:  RARE THIEF 
Wear locations are:  HEAD 
Item has other effects:
Affects:  THIEF_SKILL_LEVEL by 1
Affects:  DAMROLL by 2

The mask of an assassin has not much room for improvement.


For weapons I've heard the argument that well, the weapon and str requirement really determine its power,
that's why some weapons are better at earlier levels. Here we have a level _30_ stabber. It's obviously a
stabber, it only DR, thiefslev, and dex. It requires _30_ strength, that's massive for a thief weapon.
Next we have a level _17_ item, so over a 70 level difference. The lvl 30 version has 2 extra dex and 5
DR, is that worth 70 levels? Arguably the speed is having an impact too but it's a stabbing weapon, speed
doesn't matter.


Item: 'large hunting spear'  
Weight: 34  Size: 6'2"  Level: 30  (you can't use this yet)
Type: WEAPON   Composition: IRON
Weapon damage: 6 to 48 stab, 30 strength to use.

Affects:  DEX by 3

Damage Type: POINTED   Damage Traits: BLADED 
Strong against: MECHANICAL
Weak against:   PLANTS SKELETAL
Special Qualities:   (none)

A large hunting spear could possibly have its damage and speed improved slightly.
A large hunting spear can't really have its non-combat attributes improved.

Item: 'dark steel spear '  
Weight: 9  Size: 5'10"  Level: 17  (you can't use this yet)
Type: WEAPON   Composition: IRON
Weapon damage: 5 to 50 very slow stab, 18 strength to use.
Object is:  ANTI_GOOD THIEF 
Item has other effects:
Affects:  DAMROLL by 5

Affects:  MOVE by 10

Damage Type: POINTED   Damage Traits: BLADED 
Strong against: MECHANICAL
Weak against:   PLANTS SKELETAL
Special Qualities:   (none)

A dark steel spear is about as balanced and damaging as one can expect it to be.
A dark steel spear can't really have its non-combat attributes improved.
