    Basics

    Armor kits are made from leatherworkers but available through the Auction House for any class and profession. They have different varying levels and buffs to armor value depending on what they are made from. Armor kits may be applied to gloves, leggings, chest, or boots.

    Armor kits are a dual requirement item. Players must be a certain level to use them, and the armor that they are augmenting must be a certain level as well. This is considered an enchant and will overwrite any other enchant that is on the armor piece, so choose wisely which you'd like to use.
