    Okay another one for the buyers out there.....Would you buy a high end suit and pay the high end price for that suit if one of the pieces were brittle ? Now brittle is bad since you cannot add powder..but it can be repaired and if it is metal you can enhance to add more durability (but can only do once)....for example I have a platmail tunic that has:
    Int 5
    Mana 10
    Mr 4
    CF 3%
    Luck -100
    Lmc 8
    LRC 20
    Mage armor

    Now this tunic is Brittle and at the 35/35 now I have sent it to TC and enhanced it with Val to make sure it adds durrabilty and it did made it 52/52 and if it works the same (not sure it does) when it hits say 0/5 or so I can enhance it to bring it back up to 0/52....point of all this...say I build a bad azz PvP mage suit around this and was selling the whole suit with this tunic for a high price like 400m + (meaning the suit built it just awesome with artifacts like sliter etc.) Would you buy?

    Now I have no plan to do this anytime soon with this tunic...just was using as a example...so let's start this off...me personally yes I would buy and use it..now your thoughts ....

    You can only enhance once. If you enhanced it with valorite you can't enhance it again with a different metal later. No one would buy a suit with the key piece being brittle. It will be destroyed VERY quickly and you'll be left with a useless suit..

    i wouldnt buy it. i might make a suit myself with something like that i had looted myself (got for free) but i wouldnt pay for it. not much anyway. ive enhanced brittle before, use shadow iron for the max dura bonus. ive even enhanced ephemeral (which turned out to be worthless, it shows the durability increase after enhance but reverts after the first use) Brittle armor you can enhance tho np.

    Id use a brittle suit for things like events, where its only getting used for a hour or so a week. but i would pay very much for it.
