A Commando sent me this last night, quite the nice piece of armor actually, for a repetitively TR-ing completionist like my Mawry.
The only price for the armor was that I generate a picture of it equipped: everyone involved was very curious about how it looked. And why not? Check out the game text:
The self-styled kobold ‘Admiral’ Ancker gussied up this old set of leathers to the best of his ability, sticking several makeshift medals to the chest.
Let’s have a look at it.
Pretty, but pretty standard
It looks like a standard leather skin. I forget what the accessory skin is called … Drow Hunter? … but regardless. No medals. Unless the vials in that bandolier count.
The armor comes from somewhere in Three Barrel Cove. I can only assume that my Commando friend is trying to get a leg up on the upcoming epification of this pirate-themed adventureland?
Nice armor for minimum level 4
Don’t get me wrong, I like this skin, a lot actually, I already have it on my stick-fighting rogue/acrobat. But I am a bit disappointed by the lack of koboldish accoutrement.
Gripped by the story
searching chestwards fruitlessly
Where are the medals?
Maybe the medals are somewhere off in the distance?
My favorite part of this armor skin is the backpack detail. Note the looped cord, always handy, and the bottle of poison. Apparently that pocket is there only to carry poison at all times; the skull-and-crossbones is on the pocket, not on the bottle. A permanent poisoner’s pack.
But not particularly koboldian.
Ah well, Producer Glin has said in the past that art is always the most expensive part of any change, and they clearly weren’t going to invest a bunch of customization into a set of named armor so obscure that I and my entire guild are only now seeing it for the first time in seven years.
Nice armor, definitely, but it had the potential to be awesome in a way that only koboldian-medal-bedecked armor can really be.
