Transportation Artifacts

Hover Bikes
Hover Bikes, or Essence Riders, are personal transport vehicles designed to transport one or two passengers with limited cargo. Each unit typically requires an attunement hearthstone to power and most personal transportation in the Imperial City is done on Hover Bike. You can typically purchase your own hover bike for [(Artifact Rating + 1) Resources] for personal use at a number of retailers in the Imperial City. It’s recommended that you bring your Hover Bike in once every three months for service or you will begin to see performance issues with your device. Hover Bikes have a maximum altitude and safe fall distance of 100 yards. Hover Bikes require an attunement of only a single mote by their driver. Essence Riders also require maintenance after 750 hours of operation.

Hover Cars
Hover Cars, or Essence Vehicles, are larger sized transportation devices that are used for transport. While not quite as fast as Essence Riders, Hover Cars are a good combination of speed and storage allowing for multiple passengers and cargo. Like Essence Riders, Hover Cars require a attunement hearthstone for continued operation and maintenance. Most Hover Cars can be purchased for (Artifact Rating + 1 Resources) from dealers in the Imperial City. Hover Cars have a maximum altitude and safe fall distance of 100 yards. Hover Cars require an attunement of 4 motes from their driver to operate and require maintenance after 750 hours of operation.

Weaponry Artifacts

Small Arms
One of the major developments in warfare from the Imperial City was the development of easy to maintain, effective Essence ranged weaponry. With the appropriate Hearthstone powering the device, an unlimited amount of shots could be fired from the weapon which would last almost indefinitely provided it was given proper maintenance. The long range and heavy hitting power of Essence weaponry, in combination with technological advancements that made mass producing them a relatively easy feat, lead to a complete change in modern warefare. Once more, smaller Artifact components were designed for weaponry which gave them additional benefits and made them that much more effective. All small arms require an attunement hearthstone (level equal to the small arms Artifact rating) to fire indefinitely, otherwise each shot cost (Rating) motes. Most artifact arms also have a built in setting which allows them to switch between lethal and nonlethal (bashing) rounds.
