Artifact?[edit]

The Lance of Longinus isn't listed as an artifact. Why should a mass-produced replica that pales in comparison to the real item be considered such? Jwguy 07:32, 22 June 2011 (MDT)

Er...yes, the Lance of Longinus is very much so listed as an artifact. A Major Artifact, at that. Check again. --173.245.55.26 12:22, 22 June 2011 (MDT)
Upon inspection, you are correct. Still, the fact that this item was apparently mass produced, and is therefore no longer unique would disqualify it as an artifact, as well as the fact that it is a replication on anything. Both seem a whole lot less unique, and seem like they would not be qualities of an artifact. Jwguy 21:31, 28 June 2011 (MDT)
I would have to say that mass-production doesn't disqualify them from artifact-hood. They are super powerful items, and they were mass-produced so long ago that likely very few exist any more. Minor artifacts are defined in the SRD as "...not necessarily unique items. Even so, they are magic items that no longer can be created, at least by common mortal means." The Replica Lances seem to fit this description. JazzMan 18:43, 29 June 2011 (MDT)
Very well. I am the minority, and will concede. Jwguy 22:04, 30 June 2011 (MDT)
