Altering Items
by Petra Fyde, July 2010

An addition to the menu of most craft tools with the Stygian Abyss Expansion is the ‘Alter Item (Gargoyle)’ option.

This can be used directly by a crafter, or through an alter service contract:

Alter service contracts are created in the same way as repair deeds. The crafter selects ‘alter’ from the menu and targets a blank scroll.  The contract can be used at a soulforge by any player.

This page documents what this option can be used for.  Where a Gargish item of the same name exists like for like conversion occurs. eg.

  • Chaos shield becomes Gargish chaos shield,
  • kryss becomes Gargish kryss
  • wooden shield becomes Gargish wooden shield
  • half apron becomes Gargish half apron
  • platemail arms become Gargish platemail arms
  • Exceptional Platemail Samurai items having ‘mage armor’ property retain the property when altered
Smith Items
  • No ringmail or chainmail items can be altered, helmets, platemail gloves, gorgets and mempos can not be altered.
  • Craftable artifacts retain their original name; ie Butcher’s War Cleaver becomes a shortblade but retains the name ‘Butcher’s War Cleaver’
