I don't understand the min level thing on random drop items. I have some armor that gives a minimum level. It's actually Level 16 with a min level of 4. In theory, I would need a Master Craftsmanship Shard VI to get it to the min level, except for the point that it can't be crafted without deconstruction, which would remove everything.
Why does armor you can't craft have a min level like you can drop the level through crafting. Is there someplace else you take this armor to lower the minimum level other than Cannith?
