On Phinigel today I finally finished the quest for the Exalted Book of Iksar Culture, used it to craft a set of exalted Symbol Patterns, and then tried to make a new type 11 aug: [18:05:22] This seems correct but something is wrong. Perhaps you need to know something more in order to combine this I got the same message when i tried both tailoring combines (flawless silk + flawless spinnaret fluid; flawless animal pelts + superb marrow) and with smithing (titanium ore + alkalai Loam). Allakhazam's recipes say that I need to scribe "Tailoring Exalted Cultural Symbols" or "Smithing Exalted Cultural Symbols", which are sold by "a cultural discoveries historian" in PoK, Crescent Reach, and Abysmal Sea, but he is not in any of those 3 cities on Phinny. He should be in the game on Phinny. Exalted symbols are required level 70, recommended 74, and the cap was just raised to 75. The quest to get the book is in the game now, as is the recipe to turn the book into symbol patterns. But if the exalted symbols are not available during this expansion, cultural armor will have essentially no use. Before TSS, the best set of leather dropped gear from Demi had an average of 352 hit points, and a set of Elaborate/Eminent/Last-Blood gear had an average of 383 hit points. Cultural also has more AC, but its focus effects are 1 tier lower than on the dropped gear, so there is a tradeoff, and the two are roughly comparable. The new gear from Ashengate and Frostcrypt has an average of 460 hit point, 108 more than the Demi-set. The New Serpent's seals have 40 more hit points and last blood seals, so the new Elaborate/Eminent/Serpent gear has an average of 423 hit points - and they also have focus effects one tier behind the dropped gear in TSS. There is no reason to spend thousands of platinum on AGAAs to get gear with both stats and focus effects than the dropped armor. Therefore, cultural armor will have essentially no use. It would be great if "Tailoring/Smithing/Tinkering Exalted Cultural Symbols" could be made available on the server.
