I was curious about this feature: Layered armor system for many possible combinations.
Does that refer to layering in the crafting process, manually layering more than one item into a given slot or both?
Armors sets have two layers, a base layer (basically pants and a shirt) and a layer of parts that attach to the base armor.
In addition we have a third layer of decor that attaches to armor parts. This is a planned feature which should arrive maybe a month or so into the Prelude. The system is set up but we need our artists to create enough decorative attachments before this becomes part of the game.
