So, I totally understand the limiting of armor types. We had a bazillion and they didn't mean anything.
But what happens to all the padded armor, splint armor, brigadines and elven chainmail, etc?
I have actually spent a silly amount of time and plat buying different armors off the AH then reselling the ugly ones until I found ones that were unique and different to craft on.
When the expansion launches... what happens to these armors? Are they converted to the stats of whatever is closest while maintaining their skin... or are they replaced with an equivalent random armor that is still in the game?
(Will be very annoyed if my brightly colored brigadines turn into mousy breastplates...)
