    Possibly best armor for a fury wolf, what ya think?

    100 life Great Hauberk with 4 sockets.

    socketed with 4 X jewels with 30 ed, 9 max, 9 str, 9 dex, 7 fhr, 10 res all.

    120 ed, 36 max dam, 36 str, 36 dex, 28 fhr, 40 res all.

    what ya think about that? I would use a 400 ed pheonix sheild and Pcoa as helm.

    Just wondering what your opinion would be on this? :grin:

    I still think a fort pwns this, and at a cheaper price (especially if you're on ladder)


    nice armor though

    heh it would be if it was real. =)


    I was using it as a hypothetical. The major issue I just found out is jewels can only have 4 mods, not 6. Sigh...


    well if you took away the res and fhr it would still be fine you could make the 86 fhr bp with boots+ belt + bfists+ coa.

    oh.. and you wouldn't out damage me because of the pheonix sheild (400 ed + the 120 from the armor and the 36 max).

    Yes thats why the str mod on the armor. For coa. I think this would actually do well.

    You would need

    30 ed/9max/9str/9dex jewels though.

    :grin: not to mention the price of a phoenix coupled with the impossibility of the mods on jewels makes this more of a hypothetical "If i could dream a dream"... I think the best option is the phoenix RW in a ferarri... Imagine 400% ed plus 400 hp :)

    Realistically speaking the fort is affordable(more affordable than pheonix), thus "better" in my view lol. I tend to view affordability (realism) as a major plus in the "best" category. thus best is usually what u can have, balanced with power and useability:azn:

    ed/max and ed/min jewels are bugged ... many feel that using ed/min doesnt matter since the min damage isnt much and in a lot of cases it helps .. but w/ your jewels it would cap the max damage .... meaning it wouldnt do very well at all.

    i got a 117 max great hauberk w/ 89 life ... a friend is using it since he said when he did sp testing max/max jewels were the best .. besides some jewel he was talking about ... but not sure what the jewel was.

    IMO I would use ed/str/dex/fhr mods on a jewel ... max and min i would negate.

    Trooper: I already mentioned that it could only spawn with 4 mods right after the original post. But I geuss you only read the original post and nothing else.


    Voice: I thought only max damage was bugged (thats why 3/20/20's are so good?) I mean that would be like 12, 3/20's damage wise. Also FHR isnt needed. Bloodfists (30), coa (30), verdungos, rare boots and you meet the 86 fhr breakpoint. This would make fhr usless, so the max damage would be better. The life jump on a 100 lifer vs fortitude is 450 (during the test) with battle orders, thats not including the extra +50 life on pheonix sheild (which I happen to have a p pheonix sheild heh). So I figure a total life jump of 675 over fort and stormsheild. Now I also realize more points would need to be in dex which widdles that 675 number down. I think this item selection would outdamage the fort fury druid, I just need to make the armor to figure it out.

    using both enhanced damage and max damage in the same piece of armor, be it helm, body, or shield, will glitch the max damage and enhanced damage in an undesirable way. it works fine in weapons, and pure max damage, such as 3/20/20s or 30 max jewels work just fine. But dont try ed jewel with a 30 max jewel in an arrmor, because enhanced dmg will always glitch +max in the same piece of gear other than weapon.

    for melee, 160/36 100 life armor > forti. 120/72min/28fhr/100 life is top though.

    either use 160/36 dext and put the rest to str or just use the str armor - ~200ed and 100 life will be about 800 less dmg than forti and 4-500 more life on most builds. (one handed)

    pm me your email.

    many are idiots and couldn't count to ten without a calculator and think 'pwning all' proves everything.

    Wouldnt' 40 min/36 max/36 str/36 dex armor be the best then? I already said FHR isn't needed on my char so thats irrelevant (since I would probably be using the armor vs most melee. Or is is that min and max also bug each other? What would the damage difference between 120 ed and 40 min 36 max be? Alright, thanks for continuing to talk about this with me! :thumbsup:

    min-max is fine, as long as there is no ed on the armor - if you have ed with min-max the ed won't work at all.

    i'll test the min-max/str/dext armor on sp real fast for you.

    this looks good on paper but think

    40min gives my druid 100more min dmg after everything
    36 max is good, but not huge
    36str is 36ed
    36dex is good.

    its not really that hot.

    id rather have 40/9str (50ed) x 4 jewels you'd lose 7-800dmg but gain 500life.

    not to mention being different.
