Adding new prefix types[edit]

Just was piddling around between clients, and found this recipe for Viper's Pearl Conch. It happens to require a Oiled Ancient Focus Casing. Wasn't too sure where the template on this page was drawing from so that I could modify its output for Viper's. Will try later tonight, but just an FYI (those Oiled items were bothering me).

Recipe: Trailblazer's Pearl Conch links here, but there is no Trailblazer in this list. --Felbryn (talk) 17:00, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Updated, thanks! G R E E N E R 17:09, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
So, unlike most 4-attribute prefixes, trailblazer does not required oiled weapon components to craft? --Felbryn (talk) 19:05, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Verified. It's actually about an even split with the new ones. SarielV 20 x 20px 20:41, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Huh. Upon further examination, I see that Crusader and Marauder (the 4-attribute sets with neither concentration nor expertise) don't require oiled components, and furthermore their inscription/insignia/jewel recipes are sold by master craftsmen, so they are (presumably?) craftable even without the Heart of Thorns expansion (though you'll need to get some ingredients from trading post). Whereas Commander, Vigilant, Wanderer, and Minstrel (the sets with concentration) and also Viper (the glass cannon set) require oiled components, and their recipes are only sold in expansion areas, so they require the expansion. But Trailblazer straddles the categories, with expansion-locked recipes, but NOT requiring oiled components. Weird. --Felbryn (talk) 00:28, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
