    So I've Got an Arkaine's Valor...

    I was goofing around with my Bone Necro on USEast NL the other day, looking for rush or "I NEED TEH HELPZ!" games when I saw a game entitled "Items4 Goldplease". I remember that my Necro has a full coffer, so I join to see what he had. Most of it was jank, but he had a +2 Skills Valor that he was willing to trade for money. I thought about it for a second, then quickly traded 800k gold for the Valor. He was fine with it, since he needed the money to repair his Enigma.

    I left the game somewhat happy, seeing as I had traded a crappy commodity for something that I could actually use. But...

    I have no idea what to do with it.

    I realize they're not worth much NL, so I'm probably not going to be trading it, although if I can't really think of anything, that's certainly an option.

    What kind of character could/should I build with my newly acquired Valor?

    It has a very high Strength requirement, which means I'm leaning towards a melee build. Maybe some kind of Barb? Or maybe a Shapeshifting Druid?

    Thoughts?

    This armor was almost made for shapeshifting druids...Faster hit recovery, huge vitality boost and +skills which is nice for lycanthropy, werewolf, fury,etc. A barbarian would also be nice because of the huge defence and nice mods. Although the str requirements are high...it's not that big of a stretch from Stormshield...so casters can use it too...although there are better options.

    Well, I don't use SS on my casters...

    Largely because I mostly play PvM, or I goof around with PvP against my friends who have equally crappy gear as me.

    I've never made a SS Druid, so this is probably a good reason to do so. Probably a Bear/Bear, because Bears are cool like that. :cool:

    I had also thought of using a Barb, but I just made a nearly perfect Duress in a 500+ base defense Boneweave, so I don't think Valor would top that.

    You're not the same Oddity from MiseTings or WotC, are you?

    I already have both. The problem is, I already have that good Duress on my Conc Barb, and my WW Barb is an IK Barb.

    The only Barb build I could think of to use would be either Throw :)cool: ;)) or Frenzy, but neither of those are really appealing at this point in time. I think I'm pretty much set on some kind of Druid.

    I believe he is. He has the same avatar, and was recently posting on MT about starting up d2 again.

    I think the following get good usage out of Arkaine's Valor:

    - Shapeshifting Druids
    - Barbarians
    - Paladins

    You can also place it on your favourite melee build as well even if it's not the 'perfect' armour for it. Adds a little originality.

    Or, if you feel you're up for it, you can make a barb with a lvl51 bo. The only way to get there is to use an enigma, a CoH or... a +2 Arky.

    Wolfbarbs can benifit a lot from the high def, huge vit boost and the +2 skills can help with bo, werewolf, lycan and feral rage, *sigh* I only wish I had one of those for my wolfy...
