I bought the Heartmender Ring for 35 Emblem of Triumph to replace the Renewal of Life.
I then downgraded 18 Conquests to Valors to get the Cloak of Kea Feathers(il-213) to upgrade from the Shroud of Dedicated Research rather than spend the frosts on a cloak I'm gonna save some more for the frost chest or waist.
The cloak upgrade will still get me...
...and be an upgrade of:
+20 Spell Power
Whereas the Drape of the Violet Tower (il-264) would have been an EXTRA:
+31 Spell Power
Blue Socket (5 SP bonus)
Or I could get another 10 Frosts an upgrade the waist to Lich Killer's Lanyard and get as an upgrade from my il-219 Belt:
+30 Spell Power
Or wait for 95 Frosts and get Chestplate of Unspoken Truths giving:
+ Yellow socket
So I went for the il-213 Cloak and will be saving for the belt and chest. But i got this:
Other Badge Upgrades I could grind for...
19 Conquest upgrade my 213 necklace to a 226
The same for the libram
60 Frosts Trinket - Purified Lunar Dust
