Fortitude or Chains OF Honour for FUry/Rabies?

Which do you think is better overall? Chains of Honour seems to be the best comprimise, whereas Fortitude would be better for Fury, and Bramble better for Poison, but I prefer Fury.

My rabies damage is kinda low- 16k at lvl 30 with trangs glovs :(. THis is using chains of honour. Is Fortitude a better armour? I am using a grief phase blade/ stormshield and am considering getting an upped ribcracker.

fortitude is the best fury armor. Only jewelers with life is comparable, and that is for titan build, and duress for very few occasions

Hawkmail > Twitch ;)

If you're dueling someone like a smiter and decide to go rabies switch style CoH might be better. Otherwise Fort is pretty good so I hear :p

How could twitch be a joke? It already has fhr, +good stats, and huge stat save on blocking. It saves you more dex points than enigma grants you +str at a higher level. I'll be using a wirefleece one with a p ruby in it once season 3 ends.

And because its not a runeword & looks sexy > damage from fort. The resistance from coh & frw from enigma can be found elsewhere {or forgotten like I did since i'm setup for fury vrs fury/zeal/ww/ect}. The +skills are nice but again i'm pure fury, so not that helpful.

Twitch is underated. And the price compared to runewords? Who's gona have a duped twitch? kthx.

Back to question, CoH for PvM and casters in PvP while damage and defense arent as important and for PvP melee duels and zons, use Fort, where damage and defense are crucial. Just my opinion :grin:

I'm not using either. Enigma and Bramble is all that I've been sporting recently. Stash space was a problem, but also Enigma and Bramble are the two extremes that I think fit the build better.

Enigma > Fort / Bramble / Twitch for general pub Fury / Rabies.

Unlike what many think, untransform + tele + transform can be useful at times.

Kohlman is the only person who has posted that is right. You only use armors that give you addvantiges in the sitution you are in. There is no one armor to rule them all. This is such a common question you could have found it in a search option.

Armors I use,

bramble- for doing a ton of poison damage,
fort- melee and for gen pvp,
treachery- prebuff and just doing pvm.

That combanation works for me other combanations could work for some one else. Its all up to the player.

I have used this and won against serious duels against casters. The complete element is suprise though. Duel around 3 games then if things look grim use this technique just totally out of the blue. I've seen lots of "..." "wtf?" after doing this too and it's quite satisfying :smiley:

I imagine people upgrade it for more armor but on non-ladder you can only upgrade it once, giving it a smaller boost in defense.

if ur opponent has insane life.... use fort for the dmg. if your opponent is a zon... i'd say enigma for the tele recast xform, and finally coh for casters... oh, and to be on the safe side, bramble for barbs(rabies and walk away...) unless bvc of course...
