    Just curious, I have a bunch laying around taking up space. Is there a market for armor refinements on Siege?

    If so, what is the going rate?

    Hmmm, how many points are they worth? Or I could save them for myself when I switch over to my crafting skills.

    I'd have to find out how to use them first... are they used to add dci and resists after imbuing?

    From what I've read, I think so.

    You get them from Tmaps and killing champions. Not sure if there are other means of aquiring them. There's a huge variety of them and the most challenging part seems to be getting the exact ones you need (armor type and intensity). I never tried applying them, but from what I hear they increase either dci or resists (or both?) on armor parts... I tried reading up on them on the crafters board but couldn't find too much info about them either.

    They increase the caps on of your resists or DCI at the expense of the other.... so you can increase your fire resist cap by lowering your DCI cap for example.

    So they are of no use to me if I want to keep having an all 70s suit?
    Example: I have an all 70s suit and want to add dci via refinement. That means I can get the added dci while at the same time this will decrease my (e.g.) energy resist by 5% so now I have an all 70s suit except for energy resist which is 65% ?

    I don't see the point in having less than 70% resist in all resists...unless I am crafting a suit that is specifically designed to fight a certain monster only. For PvP I think you should have all 70s...

    Actually if you were an elf you could have all 70's by lowering energy and increase your DCI cap :)

    is there any info on how much in resist you have to trade in for each 1% of dci?
    also can you choose which resist to lower or is it random?

    I wish this was not implemented. 70 resist in fire is too op already.

    Its a 1:1 ratio. So lowering DCI cap 1, will increase one of your resist caps by 1. Here is a more detailed explanation of how they are applied and used. http://ode-guild.com/uostuff/armor-refinement.html

    PS: one thing not mentioned is how curse effects you, if you lower a resist cap down to 65 for example, curse will take you to 55 in that resist rather then 60.

    You can also get them from pirate/merchant ships, from barrels and crates in dungeons, and I have also seen them spawn in town in various crates, barrels and boxes.

    It's generally too involved to bother with with item loss. It can take a reallllly long time to get the type you need. Clearly a prodo thing. You can trash them for decent points, though.

    Appreciat the link! I finally begin to understand how this works...well since it only affects the caps and not the actual resists it really is a bit pointless on Siege unless you use it for a very specific PvM situation where you are guarded by enough guildmates as to not risk loosing the suit I guess...kinda pointless in my opinion.
