Default Ancient Wurm Hide Robe - Wrong Graphic

In 2015, Ele had proven that the look of the Ancient Wurm Hide Robe was incorrect for the timeline that we were at on Blue in 2015. Below is the closed thread with proofs.

It has been known that at some point during the classic timeline, the Ancient Wurm Hide Robe graphic was upgraded to the Miragul's Robe look from the basic Red Sr. Apprentice Robe look. I remember looting the this robe in my classic days, during velious, after it had already been changed - beautiful robe.

Below is evidence that will show beyond any reasonable doubt that the upgraded graphic of the Ancient Wurm Hide Robe starting with a patch sometime in early October of 2001 or sooner. (current to our timeline)
Date: October 12, 2001

The Case again a possible Fashionquest Robe:

The only other robe that had this graphic during this era was the Miragul's robe. The reason's below why it is highly unlikely that said wizard put a Miragul's Robe for this screenshot is the following.

1) Miragul's Robe is a "no drop" robe, required for the paladin's Fiery Avenger epic quest which requires several other no drop dragon drop items to turn in in order to kill the mob that drops this robe, after which the robe is part of several turn ins for the paladin epic.
2) This wizard would have had to do the paladin epic quest (or someone very close to him would have) and then loot this robe for fashionquest purposes only.
3) "Fashionquest" for this type of item highly demanded by another class for their epic quest during this era was non-existent. Something that would not have been logical during the classic timeline given the amount of paladins that would have had a priority to loot all of the dragon "no drop" pieces ahead of this wizard during this era. (October 2001)

The robe had the new graphic for a couple months, but was changed to the plain red ~6 months after Velious came out on Blue.

Indeed! When this happened on blue in 2015, this was the correct move to correspond with the timeline on classic.

Now that we have moved passed the Chardok revamp era (October 2001) , the Ancient Wurm Hide Robe should be changed / upgraded back to the new graphic. (Miragulís Robe)

Free the sexy!

I havenít found any, but not a specialist in this sort of thing by any means. The evidence that Ele found in 2015 (referenced in my original post) pointed to the robe being the red newbie robe in August, 2001.

My new evidence shows that that the robe graphic upgrade on classic was implemented between August and October of 2001. Thus the robe should absolutely have the Miragulís look again on blue server.

Topic: A few item graphic changes

Hello,
I noticed with the last patch, the Boots of the Vindicator were changed. They were previously a silver, original non-velious texture, pretty much looking like fine plate. Now, they seem to be a dull gold/brown color. Any chance we could get these changed back? One of the reasons that I wanted these boots was for the plain look they had along with great stats. I miss my old boots!

We changed the look of a few items with the last patch. While your preference obviously would be that this particular item remain as it was, we thought it better that it look a little more unique. A few other items were cosmetically changed as well.
In the long run, we understand that it's just as likely that people will prefer the old graphic as it is that they will like the new one. I think the old saying goes something like this: I don't know art, but I know what I like. We have to go with our instincts on this sort of thing.

This last patch was the 9/11/01 patch, so probably rule robe to a [Sep1999] era rule?

I never could find an image of what the new vindi boots should look like, I believe new Luclin graphics had a different texture / look than the non-Luclin models anyways.
