The Dalmatica may be worn by male Priests who have gained ninety-seven or more Insights. The draped coat and bell trousers are made of cloth and velvet.
The Plain Dalmatica is crafted by visiting the fae who lives deep within the Eastern Woodlands ((20-1)) and uses spirulina, angelica, hyssop and capsic bark.. This elusive Mundane will offer you three ways to earn this armor:
Talgonite: To become an Aisling of Talgonite, you will need 25 finished talos and all your labor.
Hy-Brasyl: To become an Aisling of Hy-Brasyl, you will need one piece of finished hy-brasyl and contest recognition at the Aisling level.
Mythril: To become an Aisling of Mythril, you will need 10 mythril shields and proof that you have mentored 200 Aislings. Rumor has it that the shields must all be consecrated to the same god, but the Mundanes will not confirm this.
The Loures variant is dyed with chicory, hyssop and angelica. The Rucesion variant is dyed with spirulina, paola nut, hyssop and angelica. The Mileth variant is dyed with spirulina, capsic bark, bittersweet and angelica. The Suomi variant is dyed with chicory, bittersweet, hyssop and paola nut.
Loures dyes are available from the Piet higgler. Suomi dyes are available from the Suomi smith. Rucesion dyes are available from the Rucesion higgler. Mileth dyes are available from the Mileth higgler. The Oren Dalmatica can be bought ready-made on Oren Island.
Dyeing a garment requires two Aislings: one with Tailoring ability and a second who is a respected citizen. All dyeing uses up an Aisling's limited time, and higher insight armors may require a full day's labor.
