Default Re: [LT Armor Loadouts] Expensive Greaves

Yes, the reason for the price difference seems to be the difficulty of forging the pieces. Scale is comprised of hundreds of small scales and, if one messes up, it is much easier to replace. Plate is made from a few large plates and, if one messes up, it is much harder to replace. In my opinion, bronze plate should probably suffer a -2 to skill to forge because of the necessary care, which would for the price discrepancy (as a smith would need to take 4x as much time to negate the penalty).
