Armor Upgrades

The Armor Upgrades is a new feature that the Metalworker introduces. It allows player to upgrade their Pre-Hard Mode armor to a much more powerful version. The armor he is able to upgrade is all the basic armors that fall between Copper and Platinum. In order to upgrade a set of Armor, the player must have the full suit of the said armor. Of course, it will cost money.
