IK Armor question

So i log my mf necro this morning figuring to do a bunch of hell Pindle / Eld / Shenk / Pit runs to lvl up some. So on my very first run of the day boom ! Sacred Armor drops, so after my dance of joy i check the deffense (601) so i flip to Dii net to check where that ranks and then to Arreat Summit because i find that top defense is 1000

Defense: 1001 (Base Defense: 487-600)
Defense: 1301 (Base Defense: 487-600)
Required Level: 76
Required Strength: 232
Durability: 60
+400 Defense
5% Chance To Cast Level 5 Enchant When Struck
Poison Resist +50%
+2 To Combat Skills (Barbarian Only)

So whats the deal?

Edit: i had planeed on a long series of these runs but now im afraid to do anymore and none my friends list is online to help me mule it.

when u equip more iteems from set its def goes up
Only flaw on that thinking radth is that, Stimm just id'd it... its not equiped. Do u really think a necro would have the str req (232) to handle such an armor.


Stimm u sure u read that def right? Maybe its 501 not 601?

The defense on summit refers to normal (white) sacred armor. Many (if not all) of uniq/set armors have their defense equal to max def on white version of that armor +1 no matter what summit says...

Yea Wing i reread it a few times once i checked summit its 601 UN ID.

Really def dont matter much to me, its 1 more item off my yet to find list for sets, i can also check Nats mark off that list, found it next run. Which leaves Aldurs armor, Mavs diadem , Griz weapon, shield, helm, and BK mythical

what are you talkng about?
he was asking what the def was on the armor when it was equipped.
the answer is that the def goes up when more pieces are equipped.
when u have all cept maul equipped def is 1001
wit maul its 1301.
so i guess when set is complete it gets the +300.

BTK my question was and is, according to the arreat summit and this site the defense range base is 487-600 so how can mine be 601 unless every UI says that.

I wish i knew how to post a screen shot of it so i could alleviate any questions

i think all ik armors have same def, but i am not sure.
mine certainly matches the stats listed.
i think its just listing base on non IK sacred armors.

I can say that the IK armour I found is also 601 base def (1001 total), but I can also say that I've seen IK armours in 1.09 with only 3 digits of defense, so they certainly aren't all the same defense, or at least they weren't.

In regards to all set armours getting the max defense +1, that's not true. Tal's armour for example varies in it's defense, I can show you several with difference defenses if you'd like. What happens is that any armour (be it superiour, magic, rare, set, or unique) that gets +% enhanced defense will start with the maximum base defense possible for that item. IK armour has +400 defense, as does Tal's, thus neither will always get the maximum base defense.
