    How many of you have white archon plate?

    Never found one ever and been doing a good sum of rack runs to find one and still can't get it. Looking at ATMA there's a whole stack of monster that can drop it but the odds are about 1:6000. So if someone could pass on some advice about this I'd appreciate it but I'm somehow doubting that there's any better thing I could be doing.

    Oh yeah, white also means socketed just not blue, yellow, tan, green. So who has archon plate and what's in it already? I understand if this looks like this belongs in the trade forum but wait wait before you hit the button. I am self found, its not trade related at all. Hoping for advice on finding these extremely difficult plain white items.

    Unfortunately Cows can't drop this one. Same goes for cryptic swords.

    A Plain/Socketed AP? Of course they can.

    Just clear high level areas, Pits/Tombs/CS/Baal etc, even the non-alvl 85 areas drop them.

    Maybe you aren't so filthy rich after all if you can't even use the runes you have in your stash :wink:

    A lot (note: these all have 500+ def, the ones less than 500 get Charsi'ed), mostly from just playing through the game on Hell difficulty. Sorry if it's not much help. :tongue:

    I think I'm sitting at about 5 above 500 defense right now. Mostly from CS and Baal runs.

    I have a handful that have been worth keeping. The last "keeper" I found came from one of Pindle's minions, and the rest are mostly from the Pit. I do a lot of MF-less /p7 pit runs with one of my Zons, who finds all kinds of useful socketables down there. All except for Grand Matron bows, of course.

    0 mf Pit running or cows at any player setting constantly for a week or two should net a couple, keeping a particular eye out for repairable ones which don't automatically register when they drop in a pile of other stuff.

    The trick in the long term is not to engage in any activity for too long with the specific idea of gaining a specific item. I would interweave pit running with the running up of twinked imbue characters who can leave the camp and reach the smith as quickly as possible after reaching level 8.

    I've got about 30 white ones, and about 50 in total. Just run on higher settings and kill everything. They'll drop relatively commonly.

    I have 20 and I have long long since stopped keeping any that aren't over ~510 defense. I haven't ever found a 524 defense one though; my best is only a 523. You just need to keep your eyes open and always scanning for useful white items.

    Cheers guys for the advice. Realise now I wasn't looking up Hell Bovine before. MF'less pits sounds good too. Thanks and I'll keep an eye out.

    I really do like cows for socketables. Its monotonous (but then again the game is just rinse repeat=) Only thing about large groups is taking the time to clear large piles to check for valuables, as I know on more than one occasion I've missed out because something nice was buried in a pile of junk.

    Re: How many of you have white archon plate?

    The Arreat Summit says that you can't use the cube recipe to socket a superior armor, and a lot of the runewords seem to use only three sockets. Might be difficult to get Larzuk to put only three holes in a superior archon plate. Or is the Arreat Summit wrong?

    Personally I'm waiting for plain ethereal elite armors to drop so I can properly ethbug them for my mercenary. He could sure use a Duress right now. And if they only get two sockets, well, I just got a Mal from the Hell Forge, so that would probably make a good ethbugged Prudence for a paladin focusing on defense. You know, if I ever find a reason to play one.

    Ew... I wouldn't touch one like that with a ten foot pole. Superior armors get a big X in my book and superior armors with increased durability get a double X.

    No, this is crap. You cannot cube superior armor, means you can only have 4 sockets. And double superior would add huge cost to repair.
