    Rare armour question

    Hello,
    As my ATMA gold reserves have increased by a lot, I am planning to gamble all that gold. I don't plan on gambling the usual amu/circlets, but am going to gamble body armors(Yeah.... I know rare armors suck).

    I just wanted to know the theoretical best possible mods on a rare body armour. I am not very good at checking stuff like these myself, so any help would be really appreciated. If anyone has already got one nice rare armor, please feel free to display it here. That would give some serious motivation for me to go on with this.

    Thanks in advance

    Disregard the jewel stats and you'll ideally want something like that.
    Ideally, that is.

    Good luck burning through your wallet ;)

    Just drop the gold on the floor and leave the game. Faster, and same effect.

    The usual stuff gets gambled because with the usual stuff, you have at least a small chance of getting a meaningful item, compared to 0% chance of a usable item. I would stick to this :)

    Magical Armours > Rare
    Jewelers of Amicae
    Jewelers of the Whale

    None of those armours above are as good as even cheap runewords like treachery, duress, lionheart etc. IMO. Especially when you take the 40/15 or 15/15 Jewels out of the equation.

    Spend the time popping chests instead and make Fortitude or something.

    Thanks for the replies .
    I am not doing this for effective char planning or somethin(and I already have fortitude, duress, treachery, gloom etc). I just felt like having a good(if possible) rare armor and wanted to know the ideal case.

    Re: Rare armour question

    I love to check things like this.

    Body armors can have (only the best of useful pre- and suffixes):

    prefixes:
    200ed
    +40 mana
    +40% to one of the res
    2 sockets

    suffixes
    24 fhr
    20 str
    60 life
    rep durability
    -30% req
    9 dex


    There were some useful suffixes, but the numbers are way too low (dr by 7, 5 rl) to consider them good.
    Basicly you would like to have all the prefixes. They are all good. Mana is the worst, so if you dont care about the defence you want 40% to light res, 40% fire res, 2 sockets. If you want ed: 40% light res, 200ed, 2socks.

    The best suffixes would be str, life and fhr (when you dont need defence) and fhr, life, rep durability. 20 str gives you more life than 60 life when youre Barb, so you have to adjust.
    Also: if youre THAT rich you can always ignore rep dura and just ATMA bug the armor.

    To sum up:

    The Best Non-Defence Rare Armor:
    40% light res
    40% fire res
    2 soc
    24 fhr
    60 life
    20 str.

    The Best Defence Rare Armor:
    40% light res
    2 soc
    200ed
    24 fhr
    60 life
    rep dura
    eth

    Of course you cant get eth armor from gambling, so ...

    The Best Gambled Defence Armor would be:

    40% light res
    2 soc
    200ed
    24 fhr
    60 life
    20 str.

    Conclusions? Uniques and RWs >>>>>> Rare armors.
