Is it possible to upgrade the armor? What I mean by upgrade; for example is the stats like damage threshold on my starting armor. Is there a black smith or armorer that will allow this? Why is this important to me? Let's say I like a certain armors appearance and don't find the armor with the better stats appealing I would rather keep what I have equipped. Thanks in advance
By gaining xp and using equipment, you unlock upgrades on uncommon and better gear of all types. You can then use components - which are obtained by dismantling gear from your inventory - to construct and apply those modifications. All of this can be done in the field - no vendors required.
