Okay, I need the Matrices for the gauntlets, cuirass, helmet, and shield if there are matrices for all of them. None of the gamefaqs guides have this info, so I was hoping someone could help me with this. Please help!!!

The matrices are just found throughout the island, I don't think anyone really knows their exact location. Just search every dungeon and ruin you come across.

Are all the matrices in the same land. I think Im in Mania (the land that looks like Morrowind kinda). Are they all in the same land?

They're found no where in particular. Just go fight a whole bunch of Grummites and hope they drop them.

While we're on this topic, does anyone know what drops amber matricies?

i don't think you can get amber matrixis. Although i've just got shivering isles, i have only found madness ore matrixis

you could get amber matrices, but it takes random spelunking and random fighting. usually the giant mutant trees drop them, while grummites usually have madness matrices.

Actually, I have the game guide from prima that has all the locations of the repositories that offer a 10% chance of an amber matrix and a 10% chance of a madness matrix, respectively. The best idea would be to save your game once you have found one of the repositories and keep "rolling the chest" by reloading your game until you get what you are looking for. Other than these repositories that offer a "better than average" chance at a matrix, they are just found on npc's or in dungeons.

Trust me people, the armor you get isn't worth the effort. Just stick to your own customizable armor

Go to Cutter's in Crucible, it's right next door to the museum of oddities and talk to Cutter, she will give you a list of all the ore you need for each matrix, and she will forge it for you if you bring it to her.

The only people that say this are already high level characters. If you're not up to level 20, then they're definitely worth the time and effort.

I prefer the Crusader armor to the others.

The madness armour (perfect) is the best armour you ever find in the game, and the matrices is worthless. get a perfect madness armour and customize it yourself... or just use the crusader one...

btw the crusader armor sucks for multible reasons

1. its weak

2. if you do anything bad you cant use it example: i did a thieves guild quest and completed it. upon completion i couldn't where the armor anymore

3. if you can wear it then you have to walk the pilgrims path and pray at all the shrines again which is a pain in the butt

4. its a heavy armor and if you are trained good in light then ur screweed on that deal

The matrices are found wherever the ore is found, wether it be madness or amber.There is just a small chance of it dropping.
