    Ok, you find an elite/excep armor (be it body, helm, belt, gloves, etc).

    And the damned thing is ethereal. Well, that's a 150% defense bonus right away. What do YOU do with it?

    Edit: The server crashed out and didn't post my poll.
    Choose:

    1) Sell it/Drop it immediately (depending upon the item)
    2) Use it until it breaks or slap it on a merc
    3) Keep it and make offers for Conner's items in the HC forum with it

    I made a stone out of an eth superior 4 socket sacred armor for a merc...that was a bunch of defence...

    The rest I sell (same with zerker axes and such) as I don't plan on contributing to the supply of duped runeword items on the realms =/

    Ethereal Embossed plate --> 4 PRuby for lvl 25 kick assa
    Superior Ethereal Superior Wire Fleece--> Stand by for merc maybe


    btw a question i had for a long time, can anyone answer for sure? Does Light/Medium/Heavy Armor matter on a merc (does it make him walk a bit slower) or does it have no effect?

    Hmm..and maybe I think I misinterpreted the question...
    If you mean the rares/uniques if it's a good one then it goes to the merc, or on a mule to go to a later merc perhaps.
    Except for a shako which I used solely for eldritch runs until he dropped me a real shako, it didn't drop a single dura the whole time, after which I traded it for a couple trap charms.

    I got a 3 socket etheral russet armor, good for a runeword like wealth for merc. You need to be a little more aware of what resources are avaliable...hey maybe even a friend could use it, whatever works. If it's half decent i usuallly keep it.

    depends on what the reqs are/what kinda thing it is... i used to have a sorc who (simply due to the way things worked out, not design) wore almost all eth gear... she didn't mind since she almost never got hit, and the extra def helped keep her from getting hit (defiance merc makes that extra 50% even better)

    but in general, if it's melee gear, its usually good for a merc, if it isn't melee gear, its usually still good for a long-distance sorc. if it's good for neither, it's still good for larzuk...

    Well, my personal answer to the question is...

    I keep every single one that I find (Uniques). Rares depends on mods. You never know what PK you are building that could use the added defense.

    i keep uniques. the only ethy unique i have left atm is a pair of frostys for my next sorc (well, FIRST sorc on the HC ladder but oh well :p)

    otherwise if im looking for armor and i have a high lvl with an imbue left ill imbue it for my merc. never gotten anything good, but its always a good way to squander imbues lol

    if not for eather of these situations i just always sell it.

    I also keep just about every one. Even an eth venom ward, :lol: for fake armour for one of my duelers.
    Extra defense might come in handy for my duelers and the life of the dueler is usually shorter than the life of the armour anyway.

    I had a eth chance guards 32% which I kept on my sorc (now lvl 77). I gave it away to a necro when dura hit 1.
