    i was looking thru my stuff recently and came accros an old coal suit (we used to call the style "heavy archer" a mix of chain plate and ring)
    and besides the crappy resists for a gm suit , i couldnt help wonder how i would prove its actualy coal and not normal items dyed with tokono black .

    i mean i know its coal , but how can i convince anyone else ?
    i dont have tokono dyes on that shard to make a side by side comparison .
    any ideas?
    thanks

    In order to use tokuno dyes the metal peice has to be colored. It will say in title what metal the peice is made out of. Hope this helps you.

    now the next question . whats it worth ?
    to me its sentimental ... i realy doubt id sell it but ... who knows

    all gm tagged matching names
    norse helm
    plate gorget
    plate arms
    chain tunic
    chain legs
    ring gloves
    comes with 2 normal hued katanas and a coal heater shield also by mojo
    all sitting in a bone container (looks like corpse of unknown bard ... but just says bones)
    (its on the shard where it was made , great lakes ... im prety sure it was made here . i remember her asking "ok now what style helm would you like" etc.)

    edit= its all at new durability like 60/60 never used or repaired

    In order to use Tokuno Dyes, the item must be enhanced by a crafter. If you can enhance the item, then it isnt coal armor. Coal Armor will not let you enhance it.

    As far as the price goes, i have seen pieces go for anywhere from 2-7 mil and complete suits go from 15-25. All depends on the buyer and how bad they want it ( or if they even know what it is ) [​IMG]
