The Lorica may be worn by male Warriors who have gained forty-one or more Insights. The front of the sleeveless leather tunic is woven together and embossed with color for extra protection and decoration.
The Plain Lorica is crafted by the smith in Undine with capsic bark, spirulina, hyssop and chicory. It requires a great deal of labor ((three game days' worth)) from two Aislings - both must be tailors and one must be a warrior.
The Loures variant is dyed with capsic bark, spirulina and angelica. The Mileth variant is dyed with capsic bark, bittersweet, angelica and spirulina. The Suomi variant is dyed with capsic bark, spirulina, hyssop and bittersweet. The Rucesion variant is dyed with capsic bark, hyssop, paola nut and spirulina.
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 Lorica 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.
