Can we PLEASE get a tag on old loot-gen cloaks so we know which cloaks, on the AH, will be visible? I'm going to re-craft all my cloaks and don't want to waste money/AS on cloaks with augment slots that aren't visible.

Wouldn't it be easier to just glamour the cloaks you want rather than re-craft perfectly good cloaks?

Yeah glammer the cloaks man I have double augment cloak why would I re make that? just use a mirror don't waste materials you will earn those DDO points before you will find all the crafting supplys, just make a new toon do the harbor stuff maybe a house or two and you got yourself mirror for the day, or as your already talking about spending currency why not buy mirrors? All around this is easier and less time consuming than what you want to do.

Not every player is VIP, nor has piles of DDO Points that they just don't know what else to do with.

That said, the Developers are, almost certainly, NOT going to go through the trouble to tag every new or old item just for those non-VIP's who want to craft on them. They have better things to do, to add quality of game for all players.

That said - it would be nice. Maybe(?) a free Mirror of Glamoring as the weekly freebie, sooner than later?

Wasn't there already a free cosmetic cloak given out? In chat a few days ago during a pug someone posted a store code and said it was for a free cloak.

Yes, GETCLOAKED.

However, I'm guessing the OP is looking for a different look than plain green.

That said, Mirror is the way to go rather than re-crafting. Bumping a Mirror for the weekly code isn't a bad idea, either.


Alternate freebie way: Keep rolling those DD dice. I've gotten Mirrors from Silver rolls, so they can be gotten that way if not in a rush for one.

This does make me wonder if there's any market for mirrors of the plat auction house. Granted, I'm not hurting for plat, but I'm not exactly using the mirrors, either...

It actually shouldn't be that much trouble. If a cloak has NULL for its appearance, then it's already flagged (or rather, unflagged). That info just isn't included in the tooltip atm.


Actually, a better request might be for the appearance name (or NULL) to be displayed in the tooltip for every item in the game. I'm sure people would like that information. No idea if appearance names have a pretty form though. Still, "green-yellow-combo-013" or whatever might be better than nothing.
