    Salutations,

    So this has me confused.

    • Founder Heraldry Tabard Leather Chest Armor - I assumed this would show the heraldry, but it does not. I have to salvage it to get the Eternal pattern, then apply it on a crafted piece to see it.. ?
    • Eternal Pattern: Heralrdy Tabart Leather Gloves - If I apply this to an item, then salvage that item in 1 month I get the pattern back.
    • Pattern: Founder Heraldry Tabard Leather Chest Armor - If I apply this to an item, then salvage in 1 month I don't get the pattern back.
    What I don't get is why was I given an item and not an eternal pattern to begin with for the chest armor ?
    There are no indestructible armors that show the heraldry ? Am I misunderstanding something above?



    Onto skills.. back before I took a long break we could put skills on "maintain". I still have a lot of skills set to maintain but I noticed no other skills can be set to maintain now and if I change one that is on maintain, option is gone.
    So what was changed?



    thank you for any info.



    Cheers

    Depending upon where it was acquired, some heraldry stuff was non-eternal and some were eternal. The current COTO store heraldry patterns are all eternal. I believe the stacks of patterns we received with our pledges were non-eternal but the premade armors we received from pledges would yield an eternal.

    The reason the initial premade item does not display the heraldry is because it offers the option of the non-heraldry version of that item.

    Here are two guides that also provide a lot of great info:

    The decay on death penalty was removed. Now, only specializations have a maintain setting.
