    So we got the last piece of the zodiac armor this week and, why does it not have lore? I mean, every other Item has lore relating to its zodiac sign/element, but Ophiuchus has none? So yeah I decided to take it upon myself to showcase the my and others ideas of lore. If you have any other suggestions of lore, Feel free to leave them down below and Ill add them!

    My Idea: After a great battle with a snake in Dernel jungle, the victor tanned the hide of the snake and forged it into a durable pair of leggings that brings comfort and protection to those who wear it.

    Thot_pocket's Idea: During it's creation, these leggings were infused with flames from the forge and water from the cooling. The two opposite forces are at constant tension with each other, with the built up energy being stored for later use.

    ???'s Idea: A grand snake has once terrorized the jungles of the Wynn province. Through extreme courage, and utilization of the GreatBridge's lava, the snake has been murdered and it's scales forged into this pair of leggings.

    FinnDestoryer's Idea: Found in the ancient temples of Dernel Jungle, these magnificent leggings are believed to be the ultimate gift of the ancient Dernel tribes to their mighty god, who seems to be in the form of a snake.

    Probably better to have literally no relevance to the actual zodiac (serpent-bearer) in the lore just like all the other zodiac pieces :P

    Yep! From what I've heard, Conflagrate has lore planned (but needs it cut down), and Ex Nihilo was meant to have lore but the item team member wasn't able to finish it properly in time
    I'm not sure about Ophiuchus though

    Minecraft:
    Aries - Two iron horns adorn this helmet to enhance the warriors of the Eradian, Dwarves who specifically rode Rams into battle at incredible speed.

    Actual Meaning: The Ram, first fire sign.
    Mythology: Ram that had the golden fleece, originally, had no power, just fancy.
    Stat Analysis: Based around the actual physical capabilities of rams.

    Lore Analysis: Taken directly from the star sign name, but not including the stats for its corresponding element.
    Correlation Level: Name

    Taurus - The hide of the Touroto, an almost invincible Bull-like creature, is said to be pierced only by the horn of the Tauroto itself, making it extremely valuable.

    Actual Meaning: The Bull, associated with good fortune and fortitude, but no element.
    Mythology: Always associated with the gods of beauty.
    Stat Analysis: No association with the mythology, more based on what a bull can do with his horns, yet not including the defensive capabilities.

    Lore Analysis: Taken directly from the name, but not including the stats for the mythology.
    Correlation Level: Name

    Gemini - The gods of air and thunder, frustrated with being physically insubstantial alone, decided to band together to forge the ultimate leggings of defense.

    Actual Meaning: Twins, associated with shared power, air element sign
    Mythology: Immortal gives half his power to mortal, so they can be friends forever.
    Stat Analysis: High defense.

    Lore Analysis: Taking from the stats of the constellation rather than the name this time, but no real direct link.
    Correlation Level: A little, kinda like it's looking at it from its peripheral vision.

    Cancer - 450 years ago a demonic plague like no other spread through Gavel, killing thousands. That is, until a priest encased the disease inside a helmet and warned everyone never to wear it.

    Actual Meaning: The crab, cardinal of water, generally negative.
    Mythology: Annoyed heracles during battle with hydra.
    Stat Analysis: Mostly debuffs for both parties.

    Lore Analysis: Again taking from the constellation's association rather than the animal in the name.
    Correlation Level: A little, kinda like it's looking at it from its peripheral vision.

    Leo - This thick skinned jacket, imbued with the courage of a thousand lion hearts, will grant the user massive protection from all who target them.

    Actual Meaning: The lion, associated with defense
    Mythology: nemean lion, impenetrable hide
    Stat Analysis: pretty much defense

    Lore Analysis: You can't tell me this isn't direct association.
    Correlation Level: 100%

    Virgo - These common leather boots were once owned by a barbarian with no magical prowess, who, instead of enchanting it, added a hundred boab spikes to each boot to punish enemies.

    Actual Meaning: Virgin, associated with harvest, specifically wheat.
    Mythology: Couple different things, up for debate, but not really important enough to write.
    Stat Analysis: "no u"

    Lore Analysis: There's no link at all to the original constellation.
    Correlation Level: Nada

    Libra - Before the invention of magical weight detectors, there was a giant pair of public scales in Cinfras. Instead of being thrown away, they were reforged to be a formidable piece of armour.

    Actual Meaning: Scales, but more associated with justice than actual measuring.
    Mythology: Rome's favorite sign, associated with balance of all kinds still. (Daoism?)
    Stat Analysis: Defense, but no offence, where is the balance?

    Lore Analysis: Direct correlation can't deny it.
    Correlation Level: 100%

    Scorpio - The carapace of the common Maexi pet fire scarabs, while alone, only cause minor burns to the touch. However, when woven together, they produce a variety of cumulative effects.

    Actual Meaning: Scorpion, water sign, generally negative.
    Mythology: Created by artemis
    Stat Analysis: Not really anything specific, but can definitely be linked to scorpions

    Lore Analysis: No real link to scorpions, but bugs are pretty close.
    Correlation Level: Stats

    Sagittarius - The hide of the centaur is extraordinarily magical in the right hands. It is told to allow the user to gain the swiftness of the horse, but also leaves them vulnerable to hard hitting attacks.

    Actual Meaning: Archer/Centaur
    Mythology: Mentored Achilles, the almost invincible guy
    Stat Analysis: Based around the archer class.

    Lore Analysis: Direct correlation.
    Correlation Level: 100%

    Capricorn - During a spiritual journey to Kato temple, the sage Capian was presented with powerful spiritual boots with the intention to be used for peaceful magic, and not hard combat.

    Actual Meaning: Goat mermaid, negative earth sign, based around intelligence
    Mythology: ???
    Stat Analysis: Based around magic and speed, fits except for the earth part.

    Lore Analysis: Not really correlative.
    Correlation Level: Nada

    Aquarius - “The symbol of the river” is a name that is often synonymous with this garment, with many water like qualities surrounding it, heavily bathed in magical meaning.

    Actual Meaning: Water bearer, associated with beauty actually
    Mythology: Water boy for the olympian football team
    Stat Analysis: Water

    Lore Analysis: Water
    Correlation Level: Water

    Pisces - The oddly uncomfortable helmet was hand sculpted from a mystic clay found only in the depths of Molten Heights. Not much is known about the substance.

    Actual Meaning: Two fish, maybe one fish, hopeless romantic, water element
    Mythology: Lots and lots but basically good Samaritan centaur mermaids with cancer and motherly love.
    Stat Analysis: Kinda just there as a damage booster.

    Lore Analysis: How does the clay not harden in such a hot place? Besides that no real correlation.
    Correlation Level: Nada

    Ophiuchus - N/A

    Actual Meaning: Serpent bearer, constant struggle of two equal powers, dark sign
    Mythology: The struggle with the snake is eternal because the snake only wishes to wrap him up and crush him, so he can fight it off with his strength. If the snake bit him he would probably die.
    Stat Analysis: The fire and water with decreasing earth fits the mythology really well.
    You can put out a fire with water, but the water has to actually be splashed on the fire, if water is the snake and fire is the man, this makes sense.
    If you include the decreasing strength from the struggle (Earth) it actually makes sense.
    (Snake bite correlation, a bit of a stretch I know, but I like it.)

    Lore Possibility Analysis: @thot pocket probably has the best lore idea, but it still seems a little off.
