I'm a huge fan of figuring out ways that Dollamancy and Changemancy might be untangled, but it can't be that easy. Summer Update 28
: "Really versatile magic. Weapons, armor, tools...Changemancers either rework and enchant an existing item, or just imagine a new one and conjure it."
Since we know that Changemancers create weapons and armor, I think we'd better turn your theory on its head and say that Dollamancers don't create weapons and armor. Of course Dollamancers can turn existing materials into special weapons and armor, but everything we've seen Ace making has been crazy unusual things like ray guns, hand grenades, and jet packs which I'd bet Changemancy can't make. And of course livery is Natural Dollamancy, so if you wanted to change the livery of armor or raiment that would be a job for a Dollamancer. Dollamancers can probably make adjustments to armor or any item, but to actually make new armor I'm going to speculate that Dollamancers don't actually do it any more than Zhopa actually made a new basket. I doubt that you can mine iron out of the ground and then have your Dollamancer forge it into steel, etc. Dollamancers don't seem like blacksmiths to me; I guess they're more like watch makers. It could be that the only way to make armor is to pop units who are already wearing it, use Moneymancy to turn shmuckers into armor (Natural Moneymancy might be able to handle that), or else use Changemancy. Based on this I'm going to guess that Bogroll made Parson's armor by taking some existing armor and adjusting its size and livery to fit Parson.

The fact that we've seen that no one discipline has a monopoly on creating golems tends to suggest that they can all do it, but maybe it's not every
discipline. There could be some pattern to who can make golems. Which disciplines do we know make golems? Dirtamancy, Dollamancy, Hat Magic (Book 0, Episode 19
). That's all that I can think of and all the Golem wiki page
