Still feels like a gap. Even if wearing is different level. Since it is the only armor that is crafted for the knight. So you would have to wait a very long time to even get any new armor for the knight even if knight is of level to wear.
My knight is already level 5, and I barely got my smith to level 5. That is what I am getting at. It that by the time you are able to craft said armor, the knight will be able to wear the top armor, and that is assuming you make a knight soon as you can craft the shield.
There is enough combat for the knight to level at a decent pace. Then again my focus is on building of course, but still doesn’t make any sense when that is the only armor the knight can wear beyond default. There are only 2 sets, and what ever cloths the knight comes with.
Don’t know why it was changed, as It was at 5 before; I think… Before the engineer that is.
Might be just the way I play that gets my knight on par with my smith skills… It is just how I feel, when armor sets are of same level, despite the equip level. A min/max person would just most likely craft the silver over the other, since they can craft them. Might even go out of way to find silver. Although finding silver isn’t too difficult, at least in the forest level, and enemy loot.
