Gargoyles can't wear armor?

    So I tried the SA retribution open beta, and my gargoyle can't seem to wear anything I throw at him except rings and bracers. Maybe a glass sword too. Are they restricted to just cloth robes?

    Smith/tailor can change armor/weapons to gargoyle armor/weapons.


    Or crafts Gargoyle armor, Even Stone armor.

    Bear in mind that gargoyles cannot wear gloves headpieces or gorgets, it is why you can imbue earrings and necklaces.

    Ok. In summary.

    Gargoyles can have armor made gargoyle friendly by a smith/tailor. Gargoyles can also have rings/bracers imbued and are the only race that can wear imbued jewels. Gargoyles cannot wear headpiece, gorgets or gloves.

    Boy, that really makes the 100lrc squeeze a bit tougher. Armor of Fortune, ornament of the magician, 20 LRC Legs, 20 LRC arms. Not much else to work with :p

    So they have one less slot than other races? No replacement for gloves there. Also, imbued earrings (didn't chack anything else) get a durability rating, so they basically just replaced the helm, and I assume neclaces just replaced gorgets.

    20%on ring 20%on earrings 20% on necklace...that 160%lrc, with imbuing 20% LRC is going to be easy to get.


    Sorry, i cant see how hard that is.

    I like the fact the new race will get away from the peel and stick suits already out there. the old chest leg and arm pieces can be altered TO GARGISH ONLY ARMOR. so the sharing between characters will mean have to double up on some items. weapons alter to a gargish type weapon except for bows and the arty lances. The axe of Heavens alters but remains as a double axe.

    After the server up all the weapons assumes there old weapon type but had the altered tag on them. So if you perfer the weapon abilities of the dual short axes over the executioner axe for the Zyronic Claw...........you have to realter the weapon again. still have to check when they revert if human/elf usable also. None the armor or shields reverted

    Altering armor is realy worst idea, resists will suck to crafted armor =)

    Yup but after I thought it over seen how many great options gargish types would get from weapon abilities. take the serpent fang to glasssword and taskmaster to shortsword. Not many weapon options for a fencing gargoyle.

    Dont forget the pendant of the magi. Additionally you can imbue lrc onto necklace and earrings. Not to mention that most gargoyle-only artifacts need to be discovered.

    With pendant, aof and ornament your already at 70%. How much lrc do you want to have to start building a suit?

    AoF for gargoyle worst idea ever, you will need more properties used for resists to have at last 50~ of all resists.

    I am not shure ... I dont have the values at hand. Remember that you need to 'convert' your aof into a gargish version. This should even out the missingarmour slot (for base resist). Others than that aof should be equally poor for gargs when you look for resists.
