    Armor Refinements

    Does anyone use these at all?

    I have been collecting this stuff from maps and mibs for many years and it is taking up a lot of room. I was taking them up to the top and at one time planned on selling them. Seems like they might be better off used for cleanup points.

    I collected them for over a year, even amalgamated them all to Invul...didn't appear to be a market for it, so now they go straight into the trash.

    I think they're only really useful to those gods & goddesses who can also do things like reforging & enhancing & the like.


    I say this having spent the day amalgamating my husbands collection. Through five freakin server downs & reverts :cursing:

    Great idea with absolutely trash execution. I love having lower DCI and higher resists on my PvM warriors but it's way way too much of a hassle to refine a suit.

    IMO another one of those things that had promise, but was waaaayyyy overthought and overdone.

    I amalgamate to invulnerability and sell these only.

    I've found that a few specific types sell quickly, others rarely move.

    If those of you that use them visit LA, I'm usually well stocked and they're dirt cheap. It's the closest house to Ter Mur moongate.

    Studded leather, bone, hide, and stone with reinforced attached are only ones worth keeping. Rest are trash points or don't even bother looting them.

    Congratulations - you just listed the reinforced types that don't sell on my shard and told me to toss the ones I'm always sold out of.

    Amazing how markets differ from shard to shard.

    Though, I can't remember the last time a deflecting sold.

    Pretty much this. Protection and Hardening ones that are Reinforced are used to apply +Physical/+Fire/+Energy caps to Studded/Hide/Bone/Stone. Studded/Hide/Bone/Stone are the most used armor types, due to +3% LMC Cap per piece.

    @Great DC

    For what reasons those would be the only ones worth using ?

    The rest of the Armor refinements are for armor which is not as usefull ?

    After all this, I still don't know if I am wasting my time with combining them to invul....
