Obsidian seems to be letting the community give their opinions on a single item (to be included in a later patch) via Twitter polls.

 


Greetings Watchers! Because we love you all, we want to work with you to create an item in #Deadfire. Over the next few days, we'll be putting up polls for various aspects of the item. The winner of each day will then go into the item in an upcoming patch! Stay tuned!

Source

 

The first choice is already up and it is what the weapon type should be (Wand, Pollaxe, Morningstar or Hunting Bow). It ended up being a bow.

 

The second choice is up, and it is about its appearence (Engwithan, Animancer Technology, Huana Tribal and Undead). Animancer Technology ended up winning.

 

The third choice is up, and it's about its effect (Speed, Power, Hindering Foes, Wild and Unpredictable).

Huh. Well I guess I shouldn't be surprised... Maybe they're being included in the same update though. Also, mind if I ask what weapon type you requested?

DLC maybe?

FWIW, I was told the backer items would be sold by merchants and designed mine accordingly. I was a little miffed to find it as loot on a quasi faction-locked quest. I get your frustration.

Soooo... little spoiler? :)

 

 

EDIT: The custom community item clearly must be a pollaxe. Vote for pollaxe, people. Vote for pollaxe.

It needs to be a hunting bow because Deadfire only has one unique and that's it.
Pollaxe has Wahaī Pōraga and Lord Darryn's Voulge.

But Pollaxe is so much cooler. Who wants to unironically use hunting bows, come on :p

Thank god there's no option for sword or sabre. The weapon type with the least uniques needs to win, and I'm a sword guy.

Obviously Twitter has a higher reach AND from a marketing perspective it would be not very effective to place such a poll in a forum where most likely everybody already has Deadfire. :)

We have a bow that is ice-themed (Frostseeker) and another that does corrode damage (Caedebald's Blackbow). It's time for a bow that shoots mud!

I call it "Fango Pack".

Chance to apply a single-target version of Slicken on hit.

It obviously needs to be a sword, and possibly made from obsidian.

Oh wait, that's the other thread
