    Confused by "Requirements -XX%" items

    I am Confused by "Requirements -XX%" items. I have a druid whose strenght is 180. I want to use a hammer that requires 220 strenght. My druid wears Griswold's Heart (the armor) that has Requirements -40%. Still it doesn't let me use the hammer (only the strenght requirement is in red, so this is the only reason why I can wear it). Can someone explain this to me?

    The -XX% reqs only applies to the item it is on, not on all items you put on the char. You'd need to add -20% reqs to the hammer to drop it's str by 44. As this can't be done with a single jewel or hel run (-15% is max) then the hammer would need to have 2 sockets already in it to add 2x15% and reduce the str from 220 to 154.

    The -XX% reqs also applies to dex, if the item requires a minimum dex, but not to lvl reqs.

    To sum it up, the -requirements acts only on the armor. Not on other items.

    Hel runes add -20% requirements to weapons and -15% to armor/shields/helms

    So to sum it up...... Put a HEL Rune (-20% Reqs.) in your Hammer to change the Str req to 176 (220-44=176) and you should be able to equip it just fine :thumbsup:
