    armor question

    ok i am thinking of making a fort in a heavy armor because it has higher def...is it worth it to make or does the heavy armor slow you down or anything?

    i guess the question i am asking, would it really hurt me to make a fort in a higher def heavy armor rather than a lower def light armor?

    sorry for the weird question but thanks in advance

    If it's not a merc armor, I wouldn't make it in a heavy armor. The small increase in defense isn't worth the much higher strengh req.

    Meh, just make sure the str req is doable and go for it. The -frw is irrelevant for mercs.

    i have a 15% sup dusk and a 15% sup hellforge plate
    hellforge plate has bout 70 more def on it so i was going to make in it instead of the dusk

    My ww BvB uses a 15%ed Sacred Fort, I think its well worth it for this type of character as in BvB defense is IMO as important as life.

    As for the r/w speed, in BvB this isn't important...
