Well it's been nearly 7 years since my last update in this thread, where I talked about my wish to add one more Dragon Mage set to the lineup, one titled "Mark of the Dragon" and themed after the Dragon Mage's class chain quest.
I had the idea back then for the set item names, but no clear idea on what the modifiers should be, and more importantly, no good visual design. Yet another recolor of an existing set?
Then, during D2F development, Pesmonits helped me import the Dragonscale armor from Skyrim. I created the scripts and prepared all the files right away. But the proportions were never quite right, and In the world of Ancaria, the textures seemed very drab and washed out.
