    Default Everything you need to know about Dragontouched armor

    **Note I have no intention of keeping this thread updated this was just a little project while not many people were running the lich**

    Once you've killed our lovely undead friend from the days of Tempest Spine loot runs you will recieve 50 Draconic runes which you can use to start making your armor.

    There are 4 types of runes that are used for crafting dragontouched armors, they are draconic, eldritch, tempest, and soverign. You can use the draconic runes to purchase dragontouched armor or any of the other 3 runes which are used for crafting at the three different altars. The sovereign rune drops out of the chest after you defeat sorjek, while the other runes drop from the 3 other quests in reavers refuge. (I'm not entirely sure but it seems like you can only get tempest runes from the White dragon quest and eldritch from the other 2)

    All you need to do to craft your armor is follow these simple steps.

    Step 1: Talk to the guy at the center of the altars and give him 50 draconic runes and he will give you an option to choose what kind of armor you want. Dragontouched armors give you a bonus to armor for metal armors (i.e. 15 base armor for +5 dragontouched fullplate) or an increase to your max dex bonus for leather armors. Robes and outfits start with armor +6.

    Step 2: Once you've chosen the type of armor you want you can now upgrade it on each of the three altars by placing the armor and one of the runes on the alter that shares that particular runes namesake. The effects produced are random and can be replaced by putting the armor back in with another rune, so just keep trying til you find something you like.

    So far my guildies and I have found the following attributes on each of the altars. Most attributes seem to come from known shroud items or other named raid loot.

    Eldritch: 25% striding, greater resists, stat skills +3, combustion VII, fearsome, greater false life, heavyfort, Resistance +5, Lionheart (procs remove fear), feather falling, Deathblock, Healing amplification 10%

    Tempest: Stat +6, Protection +5, Corrosive Salt Guard, Wizadry VI, exceptional stat +1, magma surge guard. efficient metamagic empower healing 2, True Seeing, SR 22,

    Soverign: Tharnes Wrath*, Lorriks Champion*, Air Guard, Melodic Guard (chance to dance on hit), Superior Combustion VII, Dodge +3**, Disintegration guard, Destruction, Greater Elemental energy, Smiting, resonance 8, sunder guard, Crippling, Earthguard (procs stoneskin), Greater potency VII, Greater spell pen VIII, +4 insight AC, potency 8, natural armor +4, earthgrab guard

    *The attributes from sets are actually part of a 3 part set that includes the 2 pieces from Mod 7 raids and the 3rd part from the soverign tier of dragontouched armor. (Tharnes Wrath gives featherfalling for the 3rd item and Lorriks Champion gives Superior Devotion VIII)
    ** Dodge +3 currently doesn't stack with the Chattering ring, I assume its because these attributes are derived from previous raid items and it considers this effect and the chattering rings effect the same thing (no different than having on two chattering rings)

    What different armor types can you choose?

    I honestly forgot to look carefully past the Fullplate/Robe areas but I don't remember it being too promising, especially since non-mithral breastplates are medium armor and the light armor stuff in there just had too high of a dex and too low of a armor for a Breastplate of Destruction Evasioner to fill out well. I'll check when I get a chance to turn in 50 more runes

    I am not following this exactly-

    Once you've our lovely undead friend from the days of Tempest Spine loot runs you will recieve 50 Draconic runes which you can use to start making your armor.
    ---------

    Once you have...what? Once you have killed him?


    ----------------------------------------

    So, there are four different types of runes, and you use the runes to upgrade the dragon touched Armor you got at the base level.

    So, what I am unclear about....if you have armor already, not Dragon Touched, and put that in with a Rune, is it randomly upgraded, or does it have to be the base (much like greensteel) item?

    Thanks much,

    You can only upgrade the dragontouched armor.

    1) 1. It has base armor 15, so it's the same amount of ac as a +5 Mith FP, but with less dex required.

    2) No.

    No worries, I was just assuming I was missing something.

    -----------------

    As for being Dragontouched....ok, I get it now. I can drop my Dragonscale leathers on my Archer-Ranger and get something modestly useful and get my full dex back...huzzah!

    Does the "Smite" make it so you can smite with any weapon?

    Default Do they come in docents

    or did one race just get shafted?

    Be careful what you wish for, what you say is best; for sometimes what you seek is found, not at the end of the quest.

    Default Forget that

    do Warforged even HAVE armor options?!

    You guys can get Mithral later while we have to choose to bolt it on at start.

    Default We resent that remark!

    We are made of mostly livewood so wooden or woody is the more pollitically correct....*whispered to* IT DOES?!...For FLESHIES?!....

    I have been informed your sex-starved minds find one of the phrases not to be talked about in public so wooden is acceptable.

    There is a docent and it gets +2 AC on it. Actually allows for some nice AC potential on a WF now
