Description

Adding an enchantment to an item does not increase its value. In Morrowind, even a simple enchantment will make the item worth 1000s. This applies to self-enchanted or purchased enchantments.

History

#1 Updated by scrawl . over 2 years ago

I can not confirm this in the original game. Enchanted a Daedric Longsword and a Common Shirt with a soultrap on touch effect. The value remained the same for both items.

#2 Updated by Amenophis . over 2 years ago

MCP has a feature to change the value of enchanted itens. Maybe have this like an option in a future version of OpenMW.

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
  • Target version set to openmw-future

???

Attached is a Morrowind screenshot showing a simple expensive ring, value 30, to which I added a light spell, making it worth 7305. The second screenshot shows my ebony broadsword now worth 27333.

I am not using MCP or anything else which would affect item value.

Can't reproduce this in vanilla Morrowind either. Are you sure you aren't using any mods that could alter this behaviour?

#6 Updated by Gordon Hales over 2 years ago

My data files are:
Morrowind
Tribunal
Bloodmoon
BetterHeads
master_index
Ring Texture Fix
DB_Attack_Mod3
Better Bodies
Syc_HerbalismforPurists(PearlBugEdit)
Realsignposts

Nothing there should affect item values. Are you guys using Tribunal and Bloodmoon? If you are, I could start a new Morrowind game, without any other mods, and see what happens. It might take a while.

OK, I'm an idiot. I think I am using Morrowind Code Patch. MCP is not in my list of data files, but I have it on my computer, so I must have applied it at some point. Morrowind has been on my system for so many years I can't remember what I did back then.

Increasing the value of items when they get enchanted would be a nice feature. It would be more appropriate as a mod, though.
