Blackthorn Artifacts
By Petra Fyde, October 2013

crown_agentBlackthorn Artifacts are obtained by trading in Minax Artifacts with an Agent of the Crown who can be found in each Loyalty City.

The artifacts consist of some decorative items and armor/clothing item groups, each item has the description ‘Bearing the Crest of Blackthorn'; each clothing/armor artifact occupies a particular armor or clothing ‘slot’ and is available in several styles.  Choose the style that best fits your character.

  1. Officer Doofy says:

    I have Conjures shroud, All Pigments of Tokuno work.

  2. Does anyone know if the reward artifacts are dyable?

    Cloth rewards using normal dye tubs, black dye tubs… Leather rewards using leather dye tubs etc?

    If not, can they be dyable using pigments of tokono?

    Or are they red forever?

    • I have the hooded robe equivalent of the Conjurer’s Garb and it IS able to be dyed. I have only used regular dyes and a white cloth dye tub on it, but I assume black dye could be used as well.
