The Bardocle may be worn by male Rogues who have gained ninety-seven or more Insights. The tunic is cut away like a long vest and held in place with a gold-buckled cloth belt.
The Plain Bardocle is crafted by visiting the fae who lives deep within the Eastern Woodlands ((20-1)) and uses capsic bark, spirulina, angelica and hyssop. 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 Suomi variant is dyed with chicory and hyssop. The Loures variant is dyed with capsic bark, spirulina, hyssop and trigonelle. The Rucesion variant is dyed with bittersweet, spirulina, angelica and hyssop. The Mileth variant is dyed with bittersweet, spirulina, paola nut, chicory and hyssop.
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.
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.
