Has anyone else noticed that the alchemical armor bonus does not work on some armors?

I put it on my Icy Raiments and it worked great.

I put it on my Crippling Chain and also on my Full Plate of the Defender and to no effect. It shows in the verbiage under examination, but did not increase my AC.

Works fine on mine. It shows up as dodge AC in the AC breakdown on your character sheet.

On your what? Again, it's working fine on most. I'm only able to confirm a problem on the Crippling Chain and Full Plate of the Defender. I'll get some screenshots.

Black DragonPlate, +5 MFP of Command, Stonemeld FP, BP of Destruction and Icy Raiments all good.

As mentioned before..it´s listed as Dodge Bonus.

Thanks. I mentioned that the Icy Raiments worked, I'm hoping someone else has tried with the Crippling Chain and Full Plate of the Defender.

Works on my full plate of the defender.

Did you try taking off the armor and putting it on after you completed the ritual, or logging in then back out? If you're wearing an item and perform a ritual on it, usually you don't see the benefit unless you take it off and put it back on, or log in then out.

You might need to just take it off and put it back on again for the effect to take.

It works on everything i have put it on so far.

I've wondered what would happen if we threw a wf in there and did the armor ritual on him/her/it...hey, they have armor plates after all...

Well, the warforgedeses that i tried it on found it a bit uncomfortable when the machine did it's teeth chomping bit, but the toaster it spits out works amazingly.

Heh, it's funny how we think... Even though it's a computer game, I too took off my armor before putting it in the device, thinking that made logical sense (actually, I didn't think about it all... just seemed natural to take it off to make it work)... It was cold standing there in my skivvies...

Did you put your armor (one at a time, and just the armor) back into the stone of change, and tell it to chew on the armor after the patch? If you didn't, it is still set to the old way, and not the new more than likely.

Tried both of those. If I could get in game, I'd take another look.

Checked both my Breastplate of Destruction and my regular +5 Mithral Fullplate and the Alchemical Bonus is working for both.

Yep, me too. Finally got in game and it added up correctly now. Sorry for the false alarm.
