    help me choose armor for my barb

    Hi,

    please help me choose my armor:
    1) fort superior dusk shroud (103 life @ chrlvl 92, 30 res to all, 212%ed, def 1475)
    2) fort great hauberk (103 life @ chrlvl 92, 29 res to all, 200%ed, def 1503)

    edit: can't change poll, but ed for great hauberk should be 200%!

    The small amount of Def increase does not justify the extra 41 stat points spent on Str in order to equip the Hauberk imho..the only issue I see is that you will have to repair the Dusk more often :(

    Dusk>Hauberk
    Less str needed, with means more pts in vita which means more life which means better chances of surviving atks.

    Dusk definately. It was superior to begin with, so had max defense+1 before the +212%.

    The GH had 501 defense to begin with, the highest roll for a GH, but it isn't superior... and the strength requirement is a bit much to worry about.

    I'm just wondering though... a 12% superior Dusk Fort, 212% ed, would make: (467+1)*3.12 = 1460 def.
    A 15% superior Dusk Fort would only get 1474 def. Is there something I'm missing, or is there a typo somewhere?

    EDIT: repairs can and should be done with Ral runes. Keep a couple in stash for when it runs low.

    Correct.
    However forti also gives +15 def, so the total def is 1460+15=1475
