    I came across an old set that looks similar to coal. I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a definitive way to tell it from invasion armor or dyed armor and the price on it if it is in fact coal. Thank you

    I think the resists might be the same for invasion and non-exceptional coal armor (15 I think it has been a while) but iirc the invasion armor legs face a different direction then the coal armor when in pack. If the set you have is exceptional at 21 resists or so then it is definitely not invasion.

    I could totally be pulling that from my butt and not know what I am talking about though so hopefully someone more knowledgeable comes around.

    Hi there,

    invasion armor and coal armor is not that close regarding to colour.
    Invasion armor is darker than coal.

    It is also possible that you have ncp coloured armor.
    Difference between npc and coal is smaller.

    If you want to know for sure if you have coal armour let me know and I come to your shard and make a pic.
