    Hi chaps,

    This is really just an enquiry into Faction items specifically Faction Armour that might have survived the purges of Faction Items after the VvV change up.

    I have in my travels found some sigil coloured armour that could be described as such but what I am really looking for is that old coloured plate mail that the smiths could craft.

    Any news on this would be very helpful.

    Kind regards,
    Loriel

    @The Scandinavian or @Smoot might be able to help with this.

    The special hue was only supposed to last 21 days after the faction crafter made the item.

    Thanks guys.

    I think Tina knows what I am referring to in particular. The TB faction hued platemail was purple and that was what I was after in particular. If the hue only lasted 21 days perhaps that explains the reason my faction robe is grey :)

    Hi there,
    again.
    :)

    If seems that you are talking about NPC ingots and armour.

    Many moons ago it was possible to buy 30 different colurs of armour from NPC vendor.
    NPC armour was smeltable into NPC ingots,and it was possoble to make armour with those ingots.

    If you find armour parts now it is not possible to know if normal quality armour is made from NPC ingots or if it is bought from NPC vendor.It was much harder to make some of the armour parts because none of the ASH existed.

    Full set of excep quality in any colour would be really rare.


    Regards
    The Scandinavian
