    Question about enigma char's

    Hi

    Since i got a few enigma's on a mule i'm wondering what char's to make.

    I have a hammerdin already and it rox on a hammerdin.

    Does a melee pala using exhile need it or is he better without?

    Any other chars that really benefit from the armor?

    I haven't seen other chars using it and i'm not into PVP.

    I just think it's a shame to have wealth on a mule while i could be using it for an other kick ass char :cool:

    Input would be appreciated

    Bert

    they rock on hammerdins, ur right but u can use it on many chars as the stats are always usefull...

    45%frw, +2 skills, teleport and last but not least you get some mf since u are playing pvm, mf is always a nice bonus

    if you manage to get max resis on other ways, i would use enigma on many chars like javazon, barb, zealot...

    hell, the only char i wouldnt use it on is a sorc...

    bone necro and summun necro :)
    melee chars dont really benefit, i should go with a caster, mayb a trapsin ?? Just pick some char u like, and not melee cuz ur not pvp, and melee just has to less mana for tele, and try it out

    gl

    @befkonijn(mooie naam trouwens;)) its probably also handy on sorc, so she could go 0 or 10 strenght and rest vita

    I use my one and only Enigma on a zealot. That way he can do solo Baal runs without having problems with the PIs and OKs in WSK3 and it's fun to teleport right into the councils at Travincal and kill'em all :D

    Why the hell wouldn't you use it on the sorc ? It's one of the best caster/MF armor around !! :scratch:

    Damn you, you beat me to it... :p

    Actually...I don't remember any build that WOULDN'T benifit from enigma... Specially in PvP

    The massive +strength allows characters to save a lot of stat points.
    +2 skills....Who doesn't want that?
    Very good defense.
    45% faster run walk, VERY important if you don't want to/can't use tele for moving around
    Allows character to teleport...so what if you have low mana? you don't NEED to teleport... And it can't get you out of a tight situation...
    8% dmg reduction


    And a few more... Common...what character doesn't benifit from those? oO;...
    If it had resistances it would probably be the only used armour in the game..

    The +1 teleport is a bit redundant on a sorc... and it's probably the most outstanding feature on Enigma. So it's better used on a char that can make use of it, IMHO...

    This is under the assumption that Enigma is valuable --- some people stick UMs in shields...

    Because it helps non-sorcs to a greater extent. Not everybody is rich enough to equip half of their characters with that armor ;)

    I can think of one: imo an amazon rarely benefits from enigma. Her cast rate is just way to sloooow to let her take advantage of the teleport ability :creep: (and usually amas wont have any more fcr from her equipment). FRW is of course good, but there are other armors that are much, much better (and cheaper) for amazons.

    A good summoner is imo the character that benefits the very most from an enigma (besides hammerdins) :cool:

    Let's not forget the fury druid - defense isn't that importent for it in PvP and the FRW and Teleport give it a half decent chance to catch casters. Also, this armor is, from my experience, the lifeblood of WWSins.

    a druid when in wearwolf or wearbear form cannot use caster spells such as teleport, just a quick note

    Yes i agree a Hammerdin/Necro benefits greatly with Enigma :p I use a bone/summon necro to mf and with Enigma he could fully concentrate his firepower from minions with minion stacking on act bosses and revives become very sweet hehe. Making it in b.p or m.p means base-55 str is all you need to equip all gear ad means more life :D

    p.s If you are curious - how i mf this ladder season :p
