    Superior Archon for Engima? Pls share your views...

    I'm being offered a superior archon enigma for my zod on ladder. Was told the def is around 13xx

    I'm making a Liberator and originally want to trade for a enigma dusk shroud or some other light armor. Since this offer came along... was wondering what your views are.

    Also if I use this armor, it will make more sense to add more points in holy shield to take advantage of the high defence right?

    i would take the armor because its still considered "light" armor,
    as far as the the Holy Shield i would max it wether you have the armor or not & if you have any points to spare i would put some points into Defiance for the synergy effect to HS.

    Well.. the Liberator is still at lvl 6 so I can go any which way. :teeth:

    Now to side track.... I know for a fact my zod is not a dupe because I found it in pindle. Questions is... should I risk getting a duped rune enigma for a real zod and risk it being deleted. Does anyone know if this is safe? :scratch:

    The Enigma is probably duped - the conclusion is up to you. A legit zod is probably the rarest item in the game.

    An Archon is the ultimate armor for runewords, really, as it's light with the highest defense - though the "superior" will vastly increase repair costs.

    Well... I heard about superior armor repair cost being high... does anyone know how high? 6 figures? :teeth:

    Being a hammer/charge din will I get hit all that much anyway? This is my 1st attempt with the build so pls enlighten me.

    you can actually dupe runewords? that's very nice to know!! and also do you think someone would rather dupe a sup archon enigma than a bunch of the runes? and another thing! i think there is a cube recipe useful for repairing items, i'm not sure if it works with runewords though, anyways it COULD be helpful to avoid that 6 figure repair cost ^^

    yeah its good trade, id do it. the zod not worth that much anyhow, even if its was found, it still is a dupe the other ppl, hard to know when ppl have legit runes or not :(

    gl in what ever you do :)

    ps, no the rune in items or not will not be deleted, thay were made in the cube using a hack so thay are not really dupe but rather made by the help of a 3rd party program

    I do not belive so, but lets rephrase that question:

    If you buy a stolen cellphone from a criminal and you know about it. Is it an ok thing to do by you even if you know it ruins the world economy and the guy in asia who makes a cellphone to feed his starving family gets even less money to buy rice with. :rolleyes: ;) :scratch:

    To be honest I would probably do that trade anyway. But think about that before anyway.

    I am pretty sure you can dupe runewords because most of the time you see people with the exact same def Enigma Dusk Shroud... Im not really an expert on this subject though :scratch:

    what are you getting at...

    I hope you're not preaching your moralistic views to me, I have a mother and I don't feel that i need another, so next time you feel like 'rephrasing' the question, think about the fact that the reason one might ask is that they JUST MIGHT HAPPEN to want to make sure their enigma they bought and sold to their GOOD friend yesterday wont be deleted today.

    This is getting off-topic. Topic is Archon Enigma, not some cell phones or Rice...etc.

    Unless there is a specific build that requires base str and you want/have such a build, I would recommend the Archon Enigma.

    I had a superior Enigma Archon, and I advise against them....I remember at one time having to pay 1.3 Million gold to get it back from 2 durab....(I made it myself, and also know it wasn't duped ;))....Needless to say, I traded it after the durab got down to 2....Ive been thrilled with my Enigma Wire Fleece that I made after that...the cost for repairs is excellently small....

    Wow... 1.3 million gold for repair... insane :rant:

    Well, the ort cubing will solve that but thats only for ladder rite? I guess I will take up the offer unless I get a wirefleece enigma offer for the zod. My initial plan was to make a hammer/charge din for mf and pvp with low str req/low block/ max life. Hmm... guess may have to compromise a bit.

    Thanks guys.. for the feedback.

    sasja quote" a legit zod is probably the rarest item in the game"

    um... :scratch: since when is zod involved in a Enigma armor? :scratch:


    and yes the repair cost is brutal for a superior.. like 800k my Wire was.


    and thats at 26 out of 34 total durability.
