    I have a 200ed skulders. It's was 244 base before id'd. Is there a way of telling what that will upgrade to? There must be a formula or something as there is for everything else in this game.

    Be careful upgrading things other than armor since in some cases, the defense may actually decrease since the % ed is rerolled when upgraded, i.e. your skulder's won't be a 200% ed balrog skin. That said, the upgraded def will be 1066-1551

    the ed will remain the same. the base def will change. but, i checked, and balrog skins are easily 2X as much defense as russet armors, so you will get a better armor even if you get the worst roll.

    Correct, I got that backwards. As I stated, this is a good upgrade candidate.

    So it will be. 1230 - 1551. Thanks for clearing that up. I have a 143x 190ed one. and a 123x 198 ed one. That must have been an unlucky upgrade.

    You're exactly right with the 1230-1551 number.

    I gave the entire possible range of a upgraded skulder's, sorry for any confusion.

    look at it this way: 1230 is also "perfect." :)
