When a crafter creates an exceptional piece of armor, it should be mage armor by default. Be it chainmail, platemail, or studded leather. Currently, all Samurai Empire Expansion plate armor will abide by this rule; they will already come out as mage armor if made exceptional. But why not every other armor type? Benefits: People could create the armor of THEIR CHOICE, and not worry about wasting a mod on Mage Armor (because let's face it, if you need mage armor, you aren't going to chance it on plate, and if you don't need mage armor, you don't want to lose a mod on something you can't use). We could see people running around in full ringmail suits again. Or full studded leather! People could create their barbed runic Studded Leather armor. Or their Valorite Runic Full Platemail. This is all about customization. As I mentioned, you can already "Mage Armorify" all the Samurai Empire Expansion armor. In light of this, why not apply that to all the legacy armor? More customization. That's all I ask.
