Will we be able to Imbue Shadowlord Armor?

    The Shadowlord armor sets look nice, but they have no great attributes. I was wondering, however, if we would be able to imbue them when SA is released.

    It's the colored armor suits that the Shadowlord troops wear.

    That would be cool. I have a blood red and Black set of plate armor. And a blood red kryss.

    I'd love if if we could imbue or somehow xfer the characteristcs of an existing artifact or armor to them (destroying the original piece of course). I'd love for my necro, mace and shield glasses to actually look like the shadowlord black plate helm. Along with all of his other armor...

    The shadowlord armor as you call it, is normal iron loot and has no magical attributes. Thus they will be able to be imbued with properties.

    However, keep in mind once you imbue the item you will never be able to fortify it again, so be sure to fortify it to 255 durability before you imbue it with your choice stats and either have a lot of backup sets or add self repair to every slot.

    I certainly plan to do so as I believe platemail armor is still the nicest looking gear in the game. I'll be making a full MR2 LRC mage armor self repair platemail suit of blood red when the time is right.

    Can't imbue Self Repair onto anything.

    My concern was that the unusual colors would make it the equivalent of an enhanced item and thus disqualified from imbuing.
     
  8. Hmm, just wondering...

    Suppose you have a really good item that you fortified, then imbued. Now after using it a while, it is all but worn out and you can't fortify it. Since you CAN un-ravel (un-imbue) the item, can you un-imbue it, fortify it back up to 255 durability a second time and then re-imbue it a second time???

    Considering the fact that you would only get back part of the ingredients needed to re imbue it, I don't think this will be much of an issue. Could be wrong though. But, you can only unravel it if you didn't follow up your imbuing by enhancing it.
     
  10. I was thinking of looted weapons... most of those I don't enhance unless made from wood (staves, bows, xbows).
