I turned a silk vest into a rare, and then later found that I could not change it into a magic item, because it isn't normal.
Is there a way to turn a rare item into a magic item?
It was normal before I made it rare, so I think that if I had known before hand, I would have been able to make it magic, and then make it rare. I only started playing the game recently, so I have no idea of how things work.
The reason I was trying to turn it into a magic item is because when I used an orb of augmentation on it the message said "failed to apply item: target is not magic", I also tried to use an orb of alteration and it said the same thing.
