Reconsider bugbiter as duelist crowning gift
Duelists can be crowned with bugbiter, even though they have penalties learning polearms.

Given that duelists receive bonuses to learning weapon proficiencies for most one-handed weapons but receive penalties to gain weapon proficiencies with polearms, it seems very odd that one of their potetial crowning gifts is Bugbiter, a spear. I suggest that this crowning gift is replaced with something else, probably an artifact weapon from one of the weapon classes they receive benefits with.

I'd like to lend my Yes to this suggestion, and also suggest that an artifact whip be added to the game to fill the slot. Duelists make great whip wielders thanks to their high dexterity, and there are already two swords and one axe in their crowning gift pool.

Bracers of war would also be fitting for them.

why not a cloak?

Either the cloak (probably not the Oman, but the other one) or Serpent's Byte (makes perfect R/P sense for DElven duelists for example)

There are many new artifacts that need to be added. Why not an artifact whip, as aerol suggests? It would be cool to finally have a good weapon for the whip class that is at least moderately attainable.

Brannalbin's cloak of defense grants invisibility, which if you ask me is pretty out of character for a duelist, confident in his superior skill and looking for a good mano a mano rather than relying on complicated tricks.

But you already know what I really want in my duelist heart of hearts. "You hear the ecstatic cries of a large crowd. "Artifact whip!" "Artifact whip!" "Artifact whip!""
