Cultural Armor Dev Journal - Age of Conan: Unchained - MMORPG.com

The folks at Funcom have published a new dev journal which gives players a look at some of the new culturally themed armor in Age of Conan.

From A Treatise on Niello

Long before the rise of countries which today are scattered across the continent, there was commerce between the ancient nations of Stygia and Acheron. Trade brought discovery, as goods traveled the span of the known world – and elements native to the far-flung reaches of the civilized kingdoms were first mingled in forges and workshops to form hybrid metals that exhibited the best properties of each ingredient.
