Question on cultural armor

Postby Zantetsuken » Tue Nov 20, 2007 7:48 am

thinking of working on some for my drakklin bard

does the armor have to be made by drakklin or can use my zerk to make the armor?

Or, you could just punch yourself in the face, hard, 20 times. Sure it won't get you any cultural armor but it'll take a hell of a lot less time and probably won't hurt as much. :blackeye:

getting to mid 100's is usually not too bad. The problems start to surface after that - multi component recipies, less skill ups, expensive and rare components plus the everpresent RNG. That is why Trab is stuck at ~200 for all tradeskills except alchemy.

well im at 166 at the moment.... been making fine plate bracers.... but man that leather padding is a major time sink.

think ill skip out on the tailoring... can always get someone to make symbols for the armor

rhenium bracer template 250-272
rhenium boot template 272-280
rhenium bp template 280-290

think i may skip that indium boot and bp... using up 2-3 ores is not fun for skill ups.... think ill just move on up to the rhenium bracer for skillups.
