    Oh thank you for doing that. Im sure it was a lot of work. The colors are wonderful for the armor even though it might change a bit as it is tweaked. I wish I would have known I would have given you resources. I kept building them up but then I was too lazy to use them this release. I am a bad girl. :( Well next release.;)

    Aww! Thanks!! :)
    My hubby had been mining like crazy in the Spectral mines, so I thought I had enough to do both the chainmail sets and the platemail sets, but not quite. So I just had to wait while and I restocked. Then RL kept interrupting me, so it took some time get the pics uploaded.

    I'm hoping that we'll get metal colors for shields and weapons.
    :D

    Thanks for putting that together, unicornslady. The existing armor is nice and the colors are a good start but hopefully soon we'll start to see a bit more variety. My hope is that one day we will have enamels that work the same way with metal and leather as dyes do with cloth.

    Yeah, I'm hoping for more metal colors like we had verite and valorite in UO. I'm also hoping we can "paint" our metal armor and do enamel inlays on our weapons.

    Ooo! Wouldn't it be nice if we could inscribe magic runes!

    To add extra enchantments depending on the runes or incantation inscribed maybe? Like IN FLAM in runic could add fire resistance and maybe give it a very subtle firey shimmer. IN LOR could add a yellowish aura and act as a faint light source. UUS SANCT could add a protection enchant like +Dam Absorb and Resist with a subtle purple shimmer. ORT GRAV could be + Air resistance. IN VAS POR could be a +Str increase. ORT YLEM could be +Int or +Dex. VAS QUAS could increase Chaos resistance. Each piece of armour, probably chest and legs would have a slot that runes could be added. Alchemists could scribe them. I imagine the strength of the enchantment would rely on the expertise of the Alchemist doing the inscriptions.

    I'd much rather have this than Diablo-like sockets!
