Wow, a terrorbird mount does sound good indeed :)

Also, in the patch notes:

- dominion gloves now 10 hours - are they still popular?

- Ninja: gem bags straight into bank!

Spurred on by the mention in the patch notes, I got my first pair of swift gloves, and having fun so far. They do seem to be useful as the upshot is to grant you a small dps buff (comparable to t90 gloves/dt brace?) and more importantly, have a chance on each basic ability to debuff your target's defense, ranged, and magic (for swifts). If you're not at 100% accuracy, this is a huge boon and very noticeable. If you're killing GWD bosses or low level slayer tasks, I'd imagine it's somewhat less useful. Some of the higher level team PvM bosses also regenerate stats, so sadly not much use there.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

Can't speak for the others, but it's much brighter compared to dormant:

O right I was just asking about the difference between refined (t85) and regular (t80). Turns out the refined version gets a brighter finish as well as some extra details (e.g. pauldrons)

 

e: nvm wtf I just saw your refined pic above idk what's wrong with my brain
