Most cities can provide you with enchanted blades and robes. Volvyagrad is a trade city that brings in fine goods from the east and the west. Those in the know can find its true treasure, though, for the gnomes of Neimheim have attained many unique items from the surrounding swamp.
Item Descriptions
A small sampling of equipment that is normally unique to the back alley shops of Volvyagard is outlined here.
Bloodportal Boots
A young elf prince once constantly boasted of the power his fey blood afforded him. Any guest who questioned him would be forced to compete against him, and the prince always humiliated his foes. Then, one day, a spell-blade proved more than a match for him. Having mastered teleportation through years of training, the spell-blade quickly shifted out of reach each time the prince neared him. Ashamed, the prince sought out Baba Yaga, who crafted a pair of boots that would extend the young princeís abilities with no training required. He won the next challenge but died soon after. The examining priest found all the blood had drained from his body.

Level 28: 3 squares per healing surge. If you have no healing surges you take 30 damage.
Neimheim Shadow
Gnome enforcers of the Volvyagard markets are known for suddenly appearing out of shadows. The source of this uncanny ability rests in the dark leather chokers each wear around their neck. Although not officially for sale, certain merchants will make a deal when officials are sufficiently distracted.
