    I am not sure, but according to the price guild ( from east trading forum), people only want 800+ etheral armor

    The problem with these armors is that they have very high strength requirements. Ornate requires 170, and I believe sacreds are around 200(not sure). This limits their usage to primarily barbarians and maybe pallys. because of this, popular 4 socketed runewords would significantly drop in value due to the character limitations, especially since ethereal archon plates get like 700 defense as a base or more; this allows the runeword the armor contains to be used by any character since the strength requirement is really really low.

    eth armors should be over 800 def to be any worth

    i sold a 700 def one for 6 perfect gems, that s about what you get for it i assume

    btw, i think sacred armor has 232 strengh req, ethereal somewhat less.
