Hal Please Answer These Questions
what armor and helm do you wear on your polearm barb?
I'm guessing a CoH and Arreat's
Enigma Archon and Arreat's Face. I have CoH Archon as well, which is pretty tight.
*whew*, that one was easy enough, lol!
is enigma good enough vs melee in pvp?
Enigma is more or less the best pvp armor around, especially for a whirler, since it gives all that str (which means more vit), the +2 skills, the 5% health increase, teleport, and the damage-to-mana mod. The only things that really outstrip it are extremely powerful uniques, like a perfect, ethereal Steal Carapace, or perhaps something like a zod bugged valor.
What is so special about a Steel Carapace??? Ive seen a few people mention using it on the forums but I cant see any stats on the armor that really make it stand out except maybe the high defense on it.
Defense: 1618-1785 (varies)(Base Defense: 446-557)
Required Level: 66
Required Strength: 230
+190-220% Enhanced Defense (varies)
Regenerate Mana 10-15% (varies)
+20% Faster Hit Recovery
Cold Resist +40-60% (varies)
Damage Reduced by 9-14 (varies)
Repairs 1 Durability in 20 Seconds
8% Chance To Cast Level 6 Iron Maiden When Struck
(Only Spawns In Patch 1.10 or later)
The defense is amazing on one of these and with its repair duribility there is no need for zod which leaves the socket up for your choosing. Enigma and Carapace are switched out based on what your dueling. Carapace being used for characters where defense would matter and enigma for all others.
Like DhR said, an ethereal SC can get upwards of 2900+ defense, and you're free to socket whatever you want in it, making it quite nice.
I hadn't seen that reapir mod befor...thought it was either for zodding or for a merc:uhhuh:
are all steel carapace's etheral ?
