Why on earth[edit source]

I've noticed the following description seems to be on several of the armor types; The [[{{PAGENAME}}]] is an armor art used by all armor types in [[Factions Campaign]]. and I ask myself... why?! For one thing, PAGENAME is bad form, but more to the point: it makes no sense. None of the armor arts are "used by all armor types" unless there's some hidden reference to the functionality types, but even then it's a stretch. Or am I completely missing something? --Bishop (rap|con) 20:49, 11 May 2006 (CDT)

type is being used to mean function types -PanSola 21:12, 11 May 2006 (CDT)
And you don't agree that is both a stretch and terribly unclear? --Bishop (rap|con) 21:15, 11 May 2006 (CDT)
A convention seems to have developed that unqualified type = stats, probably because that's the only relevant type from a strategic / game mechanics perspective. *Wants Prophecies armour crafters to offer all core stat types with any Prophecies art style like the crafters in Factions*. -- Gordon Ecker 22:11, 19 July 2006 (CDT)

anyone think it may be worth mentioning the converse? It also seems the ranger is the only profession bothered with laces... ::Soqed Hozi::

costs[edit source]

hasn't the cost of the shing jea version of the armour been reduced, it hasn't got any wood i dont think

bug?[edit source]

is the female chestpiece bugged? because the dye icon shows it fulled dyed in whatever color u use. but the actual armor is half transparent. and it seems to glitch when u zoom out

Female shirt[edit source]

Was that a PvP chara used for the female pictures? I remember having that transparency issue on the shirt with my PvP ranger but I've had no such trouble with my PvE ranger... might be like the dye diff on I believe it was woven armor. Test and maybe reshoot? Qing Guang 20:56, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

It's not a bug, or problem as it were. I'm pretty sure it's the way transparency is supposed to work. When overlaid on a dark skin tone, the dye color appears deeper and solid. A light skin tone will turn the dye color pastel and make the transparency more obvious. So it all depends on the character. The model in the screenshot is pretty light so you're seeing the upper end of the transparency effect. 04:32, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
