Only if your character is neither an Assassin nor a Ritualist:
"When Emperor Kisu's call went out for the finest armor crafters in the land to come here and reward the saviors of Cantha, I expected to find only Assassins and Ritualists. I can see I was wrong. You are a true hero.
That said, I have not the skills to help one such as you. I recommend you speak with Koumei, who can craft armor truly worthy of your abilities."
