Putting on gear after you die - str issues

Hello all! I'm building a Hammerdin and want to be real judicious with my str I give him. When you die and you click on your bod, does the game put on all your gear at once (i.e. do you have to have enough str for everything you wear). Or does it put on certain items first and the rest in a certain order? Here I'm thinking of the enigma with the huge str bonus. Thanks!

I dont have any concrete info, but I'm quite sure that armour is one of the first items that gets equipped: I remember having problems with my zealot equipping CoH after death, where he would be wearing it on the char screen, but it would be redd-ed out, and he wouldnt get any bonuses from it til re-equipping (he needed +str from gloves and boots (i think - this was like, a year ago, before i quit mp) to equip it). But, if thats the case, then a low str enigma should solve all the equipping problems for your other gear pieces.

Low Nigma + Torch and Anni will solve all of your problems.
Base str = 25
Worst rolls on both torch and anni = +20 all
str = 45 +60-65 from nigma
105-110 str... enough for hoz (as long as it isnt upped) and enough for everything else. All i know is that armor is put on first and gloves last and boots last. Weapon and shield are in the middle.

Thanks guys!! I think I'll be okay if the armor is put on before the shield. Rather than trade for another normal HoZ, I think I'll just use my upped one (124 str req, I think). But with with my enigma mage plate, I should be a-okay.
