    Armor weight..

    How much would a gothic plate, opposed to a light plate, slow down a level 14 sin with BoS. Not sure how the armor weights work.

    I believe this info can be found on the Arreat Summit? I think it'll be in the vicinity of 10% r/w.

    I'd try the Statistics Forum.

    As I understand it:

    Light armors: 0% slowdown / stamnia drain
    Medium Armors: 5% of each
    Heavy Armors: 10% of each

    According to Diabloii.net, Gothic plate's are medium.

    Medium Armor
    5% Stamina Drain
    5% Speed Loss

    Yes, but what does that mean?

    5% of your FRW gets taken away?
    Your net speed is 5% slower?
    Does it affect gear FRW differently than skill FRW?
    etc...

    keep in mind frw has deminishing returns, so if ur frw is already high, 5% wont do much. I doubt you'll feel any difference w/ bos.

    a lvl 14 ts sin using the right claw only needs i believe lvl 2 bos (might be 3). In which case 1 or 2 base points and angelics sword on switch.

    There are no 40% boots, and you'll likely be using cks. So you don't really have super fast running.
