Avenger armor

    Here's the thing: the kit sescription says that the avenger can only wear leather armor. Well I know that shadow dragon armor counts as leather but my avenger was delighted to discover he could also wear an item from J.Firkraag's summer 'red' collection. AFAIK this counts as scle armor? Is this a bug or is there some rationale behind this?

    The red dragon armour is considered plate mail, so it must be a bug.

    Why do you need a fix... you can just take it off and change it for the Shadow Armor.... I'm sure the red dragon scale is useful for another partymember.

    Shadow Dragon armor is problematic one, not red dragon.

    ???

    Red Dragon Scale is the problematic one. Red Dragon Scale is a plate mail indeed.... Shadow Dragon Scale counts as Studded Leather...

    Uggh, sorry, he posted initially about red scale... Yes it is not studded leather but plate.
    The bug I'm referring to is that Shadow Dragon doesn't count as studded leather. I've read the post wrongly. My apologies.

    Do you read the descriptions ever?
    (rightclick on the item)

    It says unuseable by...

    Does it anywhere say it is unuseable by class which is Avenger kit part of?

    Oof, it says in kit description that Avengers can't use anything but leather armor. I can't even wear studded leather! But suddenly there's this plate made out of Mr. Firkraag and I can wear it :). I'm not complaining, just asking why out of idle curiosity.

    Vukodlak, Studder Leather is just a kind of Leather, so when a description says you can use LEather only, then you still can use Studded Leather. Just go for the Shadow Dragon Armor... and forget Firkraags Armor...

    Nope. Avengers cannot wear studded leather - I know this from experience. However, Avengers can (and mine does) wear both the Shadow Dragon and Red Dragon armors. To make matters additionally confusing Cernd, as a shapeshifter, is not allowed ANY armor. However, HE CAN wear Shadow Dragon armor.

    Either Dragon armors are very special or they are very buggy. One of the two. :1eye::1eye:

    [​IMG] Ok people, I'm not sure if some of you were aware of this, but Druids can wear natural armor as well, hence Druid's being able to wear ankeg plate in BG1, try it in Bg2, find and ankeg and make armor The druid can wear it, any kit. He can wear Dragon Armor because it is just that; Natural Armor, it may be classified as plate though but it was made from a beast making it natural.

    Druids can indeed wear 'natural' armour as he puts it! :D

    Well, maybe. It might explain why the avenger can wear the red dragon armor. But what about Cernd? He can't wear the red scale but can wear shadow dragon armor?

    Maybe because it says they cant wear any armor at all.

    But he is allowed the shadow dragon one? Maybe it counts as a robe :1eye:

    I haven't tried to put the ankheg (sp?) shell armor on him though. Anyone knows if that works?
