    superior socketed items

    If you find a Superior Socketed item, is the Superior mod maintained upon creating a runeword?

    Yes... But be advised - superior items makes for HUGE repair costs. Either get around it somehow (indestructible, self repair mods) or stack up runes to use the repair cube recipes.

    Tip: Since the mods from the superior item will be carried over to the runeword, make sure you dont have any "unnecessary" superior-mods if you want to play it cheap ;)
    What I mean with this is that if you have an armor that has increased durability as its only superior mod, you must remember that this single mod will increase the repair costs enormously, to no use, since you normally have time to repair your armor. Damage/def-giving mods do at least serve a purpose :D

    The way the addition works is: if you have an armor with +10%def as superior mod, and you have a runeword that gives "+100% enhanced def", you will end up with a total +110%.
    Simple maths.

    ....aaand a ED superior armor will have a base defense of max+1 so you'll never find a better non-superior one

    It's also not that hard to find gold. It's everywhere.

    Sure it's not hard, but it's annoying.

    It's the same with e.g. Grief in a BA versus Grief in a phase blade. My zealot has a Grief BA and it needs repair once per two Baal runs. Therefore I will trade it for a Grief phase blade [email protected] That weapon will deal less damage, but I will never have to repair it.

    Is there any difference in repair costs between Sup. Archon and Sup. Dusk?

    I will probably make/buy Enigma for my hammerdin, and I was wondering if it makes sense to make one in a Superior armor or not.
    Also which Enigma is better for a hammerdin? Dusk, Archon or some other?

    Both are good armors for a hammerdin! Some people prefer Archons some prefer Dusk Shrouds! Dusk Enigmas are though more valuable for PvP characters! It's got lower strength requirements than Archon and that means you can spend more points into vitality! But for PvM both are more than enough!

    If you want to be original make Enigma in a wyrmhide armor! :D Palas look sexy in wyrmhides!

    Dont forget to use superiors armors that have at least 10% enhance defense! Thats just my opinion!
