I have a low level reptilian hide breeches of the bear that I crafted for my level 9 character. Now, I realize I will probably be finding or crafting a better pair of pants very shortly, but I find it extremely annoying that I can't equip this item.
I have tried removing my currently equipped pants and dragging them in, opposed to simply right clicking to equip. I have tried dropping them and trying again, I have tried dropping them without leg armor equipped and picking them up with auto equip enabled. I have sold it to a merchant and then re-buying them. I have put them in my stash and tried to equip the pants on another hero, I've tried logging in and out, restarting the game, restarting the computer... obviously nothing has worked.
This seems like a pretty odd bug... I would like a work around because I don't want to have this happen to me again down the line.
Furthermore, this is kind of killing my interest in actually playing the game... I just want my pants so I can go kill the mad king... is this really that hard? It's way to early in this game to be worrying about such an insignificant thing.
