I still like the old barrows armour at higher levels.

However, its not worth using at max combat anymore in eoc.

My idea is to be able to upgrade barrows armour to have tier 85 stats while keeping the same effects.

Exemple

The superior dharoks set would have the same special effect but with higher tier armour and accurracy rating.

Guthans the infested will heal randomly.

The same for all other armour sets.

Upgrading them through defeating the one barrows brother in the same armour set and receiving an Superior barrows emblet.
Defeating dharok in full dharoks armour.

Players have an increased chance for receiving a emlet when fighting the brother in rise of the six with the respective barrows armour equiped.
A total of 6 emblets need to be unlocked to fully upgrade it.
These consist of superior dharoks emblet, akrea emblet, guthans emblet, kharils emblet etc...

Also making the set untradable.
They follow the same degreding mechanic as other tier 85.

big support. however I feel these 'emblems' should be a rare find when searching the crypt to summon the respective barrows brother (or sister in Linza's case)
14 99's and counting.

Exit old M/S, Enter new M/S

It's old content, I would suggest new tier 85 sets with new effects instead.

But this suggestion adds an item sink for the older items which would slow down its depreciation due to power creep. Although, it may be a little late to add value to those item sets now.

I like the idea to give items a second chance by using some upgrade component (i.e. making a superior variant of it) - but that honestly should come from new content then. Barrows just isn't the right place to dispense t85 equipment - and having it ultra rarely to compensate just will lead to more frustration. I mean a rots drop would sound fine if you want to use existing content.

Which one exactly - degrade to dust like regular ports armours, degrade to broken like superior ones, degrade to low tier variants like refined anima core?
