Recently I created an image with all of the karma vendor armors on it and what zone you get them from. While doing this image I ran into some oddities/inconsistencies and figured I’d make a post bringing these to ArenaNet’s attention and hopefully they will get fixed/updated.

I will use the PvP locker name for these items, though the PvP locker does have some naming issues also, as they are more consistent then the names in PvE. List of armors first, then the bugs/oddities/inconsistencies at the end.

Heavy Armors

  • Superior Duelist: Obtained: Caledon, Metrica, Queensdale, Plains of Ashford, Diessa Plateau
  • Pit Fighter (roman legion look): Obtained: Kessek, Wayfarer’s, Gendaran, Field of Ruins, Lornar’s, Hirathi
  • Worn Chain: Obtained: Brisban Wildlands
  • Heavy Plate: Obtained: Dredgehaunt, Bloodtide, Blazeridge, Timberline, Sparkfly, Mt Maelstrom, Frostgorge
  • Dark: Obtained: Fireheart Rise
  • Plated: Obtained: Iron Marches

Medium Armors

  • Rogue: Obtained: Caledon, Metrica, Queensdale, Plains of Ashford, Diessa Plateau
  • Duelist: Obtained: Kessek, Wayfarer’s, Gendaran, Field of Ruins, Lornar’s, Hirathi
  • Superior Studded: Obtained: Brisban Wildlands
  • Conquest: Obtained: Fireheart Rise
  • Gunner: Obtained: Iron Marches

Light Armors

  • Devout: Obtained: Caledon, Metrica, Queensdale, Plains of Ashford, Diessa Plateau
  • Shadow/Drybones: Obtained: Kessek, Wayfarer’s, Gendaran, Field of Ruins, Lornar’s, Hirathi
  • Country: Obtained: Brisban Wildlands
  • Stately: Obtained: Dredgehaunt, Bloodtide, Blazeridge, Timberline, Sparkfly, Mt Maelstrom, Frostgorge
  • Tactical: Obtained: Fireheart Rise

Oddities/Bugs/Inconsistencies

1) All 3 Armors from Brisban Wildlands do not have the headgear available on any karma merchant whatsoever. Instead the karma merchants have headgear from another set entirely and no karma merchant has the other pieces to the headgear.

Details:

  • Light Armor Country: Brisban Wildlands. All parts but headgear. Headgear being sold is Magician/Velvet set. Magician Set not available outside of drops.
  • Medium Armor Superior Studded: Brisban Wildlands. All parts but headgear. Headgear being sold is Swindler set. Swindler set not available outside of drops.
  • Heavy Armor Worn Chain: Brisban Wildlands. All parts but headgear. Headgear being sold is Worn Scale. Worn Scale Set not available outside of drops.

Suggestion:
Replace the odd headgear with the correct headgear so people can finish a set via karma vendors.

2) Heavy Armor has 1 more set available to it then other sets do.

  • Light Armor is missing a set for Iron Marches.
  • Medium Armor has a more indepth oddity. (see 3)

Suggestion:
Add a Light Armor to Iron Marches karma vendors. Tribal would be good as many are clamoring for that armor and it’s not in game but was/is (kinda) in the PvP locker.

3) Medium Armor does not have a unique set for these zones: Dredgehaunt, Bloodtide, Blazeridge, Timberline, Sparkfly, Mt Maelstrom, Frostgorge. Instead it has 4 parts from the Rogue set (jacket, mask, shoulders) and 3 parts from the Duelist set (pants, gloves, boots).

Suggestion:
Remove the Rogue/Duelist sets from Dredgehaunt, Bloodtide, Blazeridge, Timberline, Sparkfly, Mt Maelstrom, Frostgorge as they’re available in low level zones and add in another set of Medium Armor such as Leather (what the female theif is wearing in the videos) or Commando or Mist Walker.

4) It would be nice to see the armors that are so prevalent in many zones reduced slightly and the ones that are only obtainable in 1 zone (iron marches / fireheart rise mostly as brisban only has 2 other L15-25 zones that could be used) So that the armor was a bit more diverse.

Suggested Reorganization:

  • Bloodtide, Blazeridge, Timberline: Stay the same for Light & Heavy: Add in Conquest
  • Dredgehaunt, Sparkfly: Remove Light: Stately & Heavy: Heavy Plate: Add in Medium: Gunner, Light: Tactical & Heavy: Dark.
  • Mt Maelstrom, Frostgorge: Remove Light: Stately & Heavy: Heavy Plate: Add in A Medium Armor (see 3), Light: (whatever is added to iron marches) & Heavy: Plated

Thank you for your time and consideration

I would like to add that I have been looking for the Conquest headgear for my ranger for ages. There are two places where the vendors sell Conquest gear from what I’ve explored; Orr zones and Fireheart Rise. In both of them you can find all pieces except for the headgear, which is replaced with some weird ninja mask with bone pieces on it. Def not the tricorner from PVP. Kind of frustrated about that since I really wanted the lionguard headgear.

I’m just going to give this a bump.

I had used the PvP locker to look through the armors and figure out what to get. I wanted the (pvp name) “Superior Duelist” shoulders but I went to look in the trading post and saw 0 supply, I thought something was off. Did a little more research found out it was the “Iron Legion” shoulders but the karma vendor Gon Rageshot sells everything BUT the shoulders. This seems wrong.

There are no heroes, there are only villians who have or haven’t taken action yet.
