Item talk:Elyd Edge
What is this weapon made of?
The description offers that this item is made from silver; however, in the durability bar, it clearly states 'Steel'. On review, it has ShoeMaker 13:39, January 27, 2012 (EST), Alchemical as a property. It also has a hardness of 11, which would be too high for a weapon made of silver (would be closer to 8). This leads me to believe it is a silver coated/imbued Steel blade.. So, we will leave the base material as steel.
Your thinking too much into it. It's simply a bug. A very common bug - tons of items are like this, Antique greataxe is a nice example - they even went as far as to fix the epic version to have the property, yet still not the material. On named items, they have to manually set up material field, and material enchantment. Usually they manually set the hardness too, tho thats automatic based on its enchantment lvl, so they dont mess with it unless it looks completely off.. And they forgot to change it to silver. Non named items that get the silver mutation dont suffer this as they automatically change into silver for material type.
But yea I agree, leave the mat type as listed in the shot for accuracy purposes is best. Could also tag it as a bug, but its one of those they will likely never fix as its very minor.
