    PvP Boner Armour & STR Issue

    I'm starting out a boner (my first one, yay!) and I've read a few guides that explain I can leave strength at base and pop some decent gear on. To pop a sexy enigma on, i need 103 to STR. Anni gives me 19, Shako gives me 2, and I can manage with 2 or 3 "2 to str" sc's so I don't need more than 70 pts to str. I'm doing something wrong, aren't I?

    The guide seems to be suggesting using a basic, crappy armour. Is this worth it?

    Breast plate Enigma seems to be most popular. You aren't using the armor for its defense rating. All you need it for is holding the runeword and the sexy looks. A Breast plate Enigma means you'll need to get your Strength to 30.

    Breast Plate/Light Plate/Mage Plate are popular choices for base str characters.

    If you plan on using marrow walk boots, well no ;)

    118 for them.

    I use base str and a bp enigma on my necro, and I must say I've never looked back. An extra 500 def means vey little to you, when that 70 str you invested could be in vit instead.
    I strongly advise going with something like a bp.

    i have the same idea of riath,

    bp enigma is the way to go : base str+anni gives 30+ str...
    rest goes into dexterity/vitality or full vitality , its your call...

    I put 100 into dext. and with +X dext from items i have around 65 blocking with homund, i'd say thats enough, although u can go higher if u want.

    Depends also on how rich u are, if u can afford 10x 3X pb lifers then i would go for more dext ^^

    yup, 118str after equipping enigma isnt hard since it gives str/lvl.
    Just make sure to have 30str for a bp. (easy with an anni/shako/maras/maybe a charm or two...)
