    Armor for Fotitude

    Well I have a Lo and I have 2 armors that would be good to put Fortitude in.

    I have a Superior 656 defense Sacred Armor and a 517 defense Archon Plate. Just wondering which would be the best and which would get the best resale value once im done using it.

    The archon plate. It's a light armor and it has far lower str reqs. Even though the sacred armor has a higher defense and is proably worth more, most people who need Fortitude don't want to invest 200 points into str and have 10% less run/walk speed. In addition, repairing Fortitude in a superior sacred armor might cost a fortune, and most people don't like collecting runes for the repair recipe.

    A fixed -0.40 yards/sec for medium armors such as Ancient Armors and its upgrades.

    As usual, you are right. Sacred armors are medium armors which reduce run/walk speed by 5% of the base walking speed, not 10%. However, it has no influence on my opinion regarding the sale value of Fortitude armors :p

    Seconded.
    Yes, the gold repair costs for fortitude in a superior armor are astronomical... a superior archon fortitude I have costs over 1.6M to repair to full durability if it is broken.

    That's too much - now I'm even wrong when saying that you are right :lol:
