Bone armor?
Can you please explain the logic behind price of bone armor? It is the lowest tier heavy mage armor that does not require "rare" mats, and it costs like 60+ kobold bone. Solo farming, it takes 1.5 hour to get these, and kobolds are awful - they are low tier, even with our crap chars and on somwehat decent spawns you have ton of downtime, and scaled up they shoot bow like crazy. How does this compare with leather, robes or metal armor which is much easier to obtain? Is this intentional? Why to offer two lines of mage armor when one is simply unsustainable? The amount of kobold bones should go to like 30% or so IMO. Or increase skins from kobolds. Of course with added higher requirement on base mats.

related: simple robes just don't get made now that bone armor is available. no one is gonna blow their hard earned kobold bones on that low tier stuff now (which sucks if you just want some cheap junk to farm with a new character)

Totally. The headpiece of robes that requires kobold bone is never beeing done just because of the reasons clarified in the OP.

Let the low tier armors remain cheap, I'd prolly rather grind giant bone armor at this point. (semi cheap)

Regular Bone armor costs an arm and a leg. But let us all complain about magefall and high costs of metal armors (which you can actually afk farm)

good point btw, there will be a shitton of fp + infernal passively growing like flowers while other gear has to be grinded, not really thought through really.

Their are a number of ways to get rare ores

mobs, quests, mines and random drops from chests/villages

But ONLY mobs for all the new bone, leather, cloth types.  This should be equalized by putting these new materials into the games drop tables on quests, mines (the farm and grove could drop them) and chest/village rewards.

Every type of armour should take an equal amount or equivalent of time to obtain the mats for it.

It's not necessarily the way you get it needs to be standardized, but the average time spent. Someone has to make tests with numbers I guess. Too bad Wisdom and skinning skill affects the Kobold bone gathering too much at low level.

Would be nice to have Kobolds skin for more Kobold Bones based on the mobs difficulty. They currently all skin for 1 max afaik, having it 1-2-5 or something would already help.

It's fine guys they upped studded leather suits mat costs. Roughly 4x the cost.
Sadly 4 x 0 Is still 0, rofl.

Now you have to kill two raptors for enough leather for a studded set, not one!

What a joke.
Even if they made studded require rare mats, people would just use leather sets cause their cheaper.
Bone doesn't have that option. It WAS the cheaper set.
By using bone instead of robes you fuck your mana regen so hard.
Literally all the way until the last day of indev people were pvping in studded suits because their traits were so powerful compared to how cheap it was to make.

Make studded cost cancer enchanting mats like bone.
Give bone a "set" that's cheaper and worse than bone
Like give cloth or padded mage traits ffs, something instead of fuckin robes.

It's kind of silly that you can farm 100+ rare ore in an hour with a small group... but only get 1 kobold bone per skin. Can't we change it to like "humanoid bone" and let all humanoids skin for them in increasing amounts based on difficulty. At least that way we don't have to fall asleep farming kobolds.
