Which arcane item would you use in an Empire army?

This doesn't really work in isolation... if you had to choose one of the 4 in a vacuum then a Dispel Scroll would be my first choice, but only because the Seal of Destruction isn't on the list.

My first pick if i were taking only one empire arcane. After that, the rod of power is a good way of getting another 2 power dice per turn off warrior priests. :evilgrin: It would depend on the build of your army. What are you looking for? Offence or defence? Is your army based on huge blocks or steam tanks that can be wrecked with one superspell? Or are you wanting to overwhelm your opponent with magic? The d.scroll is always a safe choice if you have a slot available, but my armies get by happily without one.

Agreed, although my default Arcane Item is the Channeling Staff. It has the potential to do something useful every turn.

With the current rulebook I'd say; dispel scroll

if your not taking a dispel scroll your going to take a beating at one magic phase that you could do without...

You could take multiple mages and items? Generally Dispel Scroll is tops though.
