GM Armour?

So, having taken a year long break, my gear is pretty lacking... I've heard alot about this new player crafted armour since I've been back, though, so hopefully I might be able to use some of that to get me more properly geared (much to the dismay of the clerics, I'm sure.)

So, basically... just curious as to how much these peices run, where to find some info about then (ie components, if they're pricey and need to be farmed, etc..)...

Also, not sure if we have any half-elves who can craft the plate? Anyways, let me know )

To my knowledge there are no Half Elf smiths in the guild. I do know a non MLF Half Elf smith though. His name is Quiss. He is a Bard and is in Avatar Elite.

The armor can be quite nice. The rare item needed is metallic drake scales and you will need from one to three to make each piece of armor in addition to another one for the Type 11 augment that is player made. A number of MLF can make the augment for you, myself not included.

I don't recall the name of the Half Elf armor, but the Human plate armor is Grandmaster's Stalwart .......... There is also lower level versions. If you look the armor up on Alla's it will not look that good, but when it is augmented it does become very nice.

Thanks for the info. Aye, pretty much anything is an upgrade for me at this point, seeing as I still have about 4 slots with <50 hp.

I imagine the components vary with the different races? And are the augs race-specific or is that based on diety?

Its called Grandmaster's Wayguard for plate. Baldary is right, the only GM half-elf smith that I know of is Quiss. Beldarr has made a couple GM pieces on one of his alts, but I'm not sure what his smithing skill is currently.

My paladin's smithing is in the 230 range and i have a 5% mod, but he's only level 51 and has no aa for tradeskills. I think I'm running about 35% lifetime on the GM armor combine success rate, but only 1 failure on MDS conversion.
