    Gaze has dual leech, and some PDR [15-20%, iirc].

    Arreats has fhr, life leech, all resist, plus to combat skills, plus to -all- skills, more def...

    You can see where I'm going with this. :D

    Arreats > Gaze

    I'd use Arreats on almost every character if I could. :p

    Arreats all the way!

    If you want DR put a ber rune into arreats! But for a barb who uses shield you can achieve that by using verdungo + stormshield (50% DR).

    ok so it seems arreats is popular. I want to upgrade my arreats and put a ber in it. I have the ber rune, but how do I upgrade it. Anyone know the cube formula?

    1 Ko Rune + 1 Lem Rune + 1 Perfect Diamond + Exceptional Unique Armor = Elite Version of Armor (Ladder Only)

    armor is also helms,.....

    hope it helps you ;)

    You might not want to upgrade it, since there is a slight chance it will end up with LESS defense when upgraded, and the strength requirement jumps up to a ridiculous total.

    Also, why ber it? Stormshield + ( Verdungo or String ) = max pdr already. If you were using a 2h weapon, then maybe, but in that instance, you'd probably be better off with a berber Crown of Ages or such.

    wow now im worried, how would it get less defense? does the % change totally? so 197% goes to anything but of the next highest level? And also the reason I would ber it, is I don't plan on using SS because, I would like to do more damage. I think I will have enough life leech to do this.

    So far what Im planing.. If you see any flaws please tell me

    Ber arreats
    String
    Highlords
    Goreriders
    Hellmouth
    Ravenfrost
    A rare ring I gambled for 6% ll, 20 str! some other minor mods
    Botd Cb
    Shaftstop ( I also want to know if I should up this, and what to put in it)

    Thanks btw soldier. I will certainly use it for something in the future.

    Its a huge waste to ber the arreats for pvm, u dont even need any DR for pvm. Besides u got shaft+ string which gives u 45% and its plenty.

    The % doesn't change, but the minimum base defense on upgraded arreat's is lower than the maximum base defense on a normal one; thus, when you upgrade, there's a chance it will pick in that minimum range and end up giving you less defense.

    I still wouldn't ber it though, ber is a valuable rune for other purposes than getting another 5% dr. ed/str or ed/dex jewels would be better for a whirler in the helm anyways.

    All you will ever need for pvm is resist all at 75% in hell, a good weapon, and duel leech. You have the good weapon and duel leech. Just get 75% resist all.
