Diversity of Armors

muffinmuffel
I want to know if other Player also felt, like I did:

I loved the fact, that there are more different crafting skill Lines, especially, that the "medium Armor" got back.
However, I kind of miss the ability to craft different Armors in one style.
Did I not level high enogh?
Or is it really, that I can only use Iron and one of the special "racial" materials (moonstone, flint, deadra Hearts, etc.)?
Because I would have loved some more possibilities there, for examle 3 different looking kinds of Khajit heavy Armor (using Iron, Steel or rare Metals).

Is that acctually there, and I just never leveled high enogh, or is this really a thing and if it is, did you feel the same, or do I just expect a bit to much?

Players, please discuss.

    Actually the armors you craft have 4 different looks depending on the level (material) you're crafting it with.

    Iron, Steel, Orichalcum, and all the materials after orichalc, those 4 look differ from each other :) (which is up to lvl 36)

    Same goes for the other types of armor.

    Weapons have an extra look from lvl 50+1vet. onwards :)

    Also, note that you have to spend points in crafting skills to be able to use higher lvl materials

    Also, the appearance of any armour will change slightly when you improve it's quality. Perhaps a gold trim appears, or extra sashes or spikes etc.

    Although I went for Enchanting and Provisioning, I came across a couple of "Blue" rarity Lore Books (One for Argonians and one for Dark Elves) I used one to see what it was which turned out I learned a style.. Gave the other to my partner who's levelling clothing, so will have a look later at how it works!
