    IK is an elite armor, its Sacred Armor to be exact. The exceptional armor is Griz armor. I've traded a few off and I usually get 2-3x290s or so depending on how hard I want to push it atm (this is east).

    In fact, you now have 10% of the set.

    in value, the armor is 90% of the set, the rest of the items is the remaining 10%.

    I dont know the exact value, but that is kind of the way it compares to the rest of the set. i think you can try trading one with runes like vex or higher.

    I recently acquired 1.10 IK armor for Jah + Um (NL). The seller thought I underpaid, I thought I overpaid so it must have been just right. I would be wary of trading for it on bnet because you could easily get ripped with a 1.09 armor (no new set synergies).

    IK armor is an elite armor (set Sacred Armor).

    It can be bought for Mal on USEast Ladder nowadays. Possibly less.

    I diden't think that the armor had gained any hidden (green bonuses) with the 1.10 set. So when wearing the full 1.10 set, what hidden bonuses did the armor gain that were different from the .09 set?

    LOL I challenge you to find anyone on these forums willing to give it up for that cheap. 1.10 armor of course. I don't doubt the 1.09 armor would go for that. Also FYI ist is worth alot more than mal, at least 3x.

    afaik, all 1.10 ik armors have 1001 def (def for sacred armor is 487-600, but ik armor is max +1, and has an added 400 bonus, totalling 1001).
    That should make it somewhat easier to distinguish the new from the old. :thumbsup:

    maybe ladder / non ladder is what makes the big difference in perception of value here ?

    I just recently traded a dual leech ring (kinda crappy, not something REALLY special) + Pul + Aldurs Armor + a 5/4 light facet for my IK armor on USeast Ladder. None of these were doing me any good so it was a great deal for me.

    Best part of ladder: no 1.09 scammers.

    The price depends if you are on ladder or non ladder.

    On USWest ladder it goes for a mal rune. You might be able to get some cheaper than that, like um + something. The armor is losing value because most people realize there are better barb setups out there. It's not the best pvp or magic find setup (besides there are better characters for magic find than a barb, though find item skill isn't that bad). It is a fantastic pvm setup but a vast majority of the b-net community don't care about that.

    i think i made off real good. although not honest, it went well in my benifit. i found a unq legendary mallet. I phrased it as a unid schaefers. in no time someone offered ik armor. and of course i excepted it. and of course it turned out to be that other crappy thing. i really feal sry for the guy, but thats how d2 is. if you dont know what your doing, your obviously gonna get tricked. btw this is useast ladder.

    I should have been clear I am talking about nonladder, I'm on USEast. Why is it so cheap on Ladder? Do ladder players just PvP? If thats the case then IK setup wouldn't be that popular so it makes sense.

    it's because runes are worth far more on ladder now than nonladder.

    I'll add my comments:

    [EU] [L]: Ik armor ~ist I've seen it traded for a Gul (the rune ofcourse), but it is SERIOUSLY dropping in value. Beginning of L: Ik armor was top tradeable. Now: everybody has one (even me, and I'm poor ^_^). With everybody I mean the regular traders. So with some decent runes you should be able to get one. I know people who have found 5*Ik armor (legitly, yes, they're total D2 geeks and play 24/7) who now optimize their mf stuff and want a lot of Ist runes.

    EDIT: made a tiny mistake: Ik armor isnt quite ~ist , its more like IK armor = [email protected] :)
