    Combat items

    Combat items are primarily good for killing things. A few have other uses as well, like the luckstone or the Ioun Stone Mastery, but their biggest effect is making their owner better at killing or not getting killed. Increase the price of these items if you want your players mostly getting oddball magic items that don't interact much at all with combat. All items which are weapons or armor add the cost of the base weapon or armor that makes them up to their price.

    Spoiler: Discount Notes
    A few items could be useful for lower level characters in theory, but have high prices due to their usefulness to high level characters. Alternate versions are presented here for the GM who wants to use them.
    Ring of shooting stars: A version of this item where the areas of the shooting stars cannot be overlapped would cost only 4000 gold.
    Wands of Magic Missiles/Lightning Bolts/Fireballs: A version of one of these items that can't use multiple charges to cast at higher levels would cost 3000 for magic missiles and 8000 for lightning bolts or fireballs.
    Instruments of the bards: Cost 20,000 gold less without the ability to grant disadvantage on saves against charm effects.
    Rod of the pact Keeper: Rods which grant a warlock spell slot of a fixed level rather than whatever level you happen to have cost less.
    Rods limited to 1st level cost 3000/7000/19000 for +1/+2/+3
    Rods limited to 2nd level cost 4000/8000/20000 for +1/+2/+3
    Rods limited to 3rd level cost 6000/10000/22000 for +1/+2/+3
    Rods limited to 4th level cost 9000/13000/24000 for +1/+2/+3
