    Joy of Sacred Armor

    I want to compare all the highest defenses for runeword sacred armor. I automatically round down so im not putting them in the calculation. Here will be some examples:

    Enigma- 601*1.15=691+775=1466
    Chains of Honor- 601*1.85=1111
    Fortitude- 601*3.15=1893+15=1908
    Bugged Prudence- 600*1.5=900*1.5=1350*2.7=3645

    Im pretty sure I calculated all them right but correct me if I am wrong. I used those calculations for character armors not merc armor and prudence has self repair so I calculated it out of bugged armor. Any other sacred armor runeword calculations are more than welcome.

    4065 is the max iirc:

    600*1.5*1.5*3 +15 = 4065

    Yeah I just remembered that I calculated it with a superior armor.

    Re: Joy of Sacred Armor

    Well its nice to hear about sacred armor's for merc's but I want to hear more from runeword sacred armors for characters mainly. Here is another one:

    Stone- 601*4.05=2434

    Still bugged prudence is the highest defense armor for a character not merc because of its self repair.

    If you can accept a non-Rune word, non-Sacred Armor answer, have a look at a perfect ethereal Steel Carapace. Will get 4006 def iirc. And self-repair.

    Re: Joy of Sacred Armor

    No I believe you are wrong let me calculate. Correct me if im wrong:
    558*1.5=837*3.2=2678
    or is it
    557*1.5=835*3.2=2672

    Im not sure its either one of my calculations. Because whenever bugged armor is calculated you do not add +1 to base defense like normally. Same along with upped items. For example shadow plate can have 557 defense but you can have 558 on it because its defense of item +1. I know its a confusing process.

    Where did you get 4006?

    2678 is right.

    Re: Joy of Sacred Armor

    I think I'll write that off as a brain fart. For a reason I don't quite know, I applied the extra cube socketing eth bonus. (It does not apply of course)
    Sorry about that.

    It could get a little higher though. You have the option of socketing a Pul rune in it for an extra +30% edef. - 2929 def with a Pul socketed

    Edit. I just redid the calc and I got nowhere near 4006... Add a typo to the list of what went wrong.

    just my quick $0.02:

    the only character build that should ever even consider spending the strength for Sacred Armour is a BvB.

    Re: Joy of Sacred Armor

    Yeah, I agree with that. Wasting so much life for a bit of extra defense that's subject to diminishing returns is stupid.

    I know I would not use sacred armor on my chars either but this is just for fun topic. Can we all just talk about it anyways?
