think bout this 4 a second

Lateley, people have priced items very strangely... First of all, note that Arkaine's Valor has an indestructable mod on it, so does a zod rune... It has even more godly mods, and guess what? It's not worth a zod(so i belive from what i have seen) how weird? they both r the same thing but valor is more and its not worth a zod rune, omg... and vex, the rune which costs u a head arm and leg and all ur mules, gives mana leech, ok a crappy weap from norm has MORE leech than that, when compared to a vex, its worth crap, this is kinda bull crap u know? items are way to priced...
think bouth this stupid stuff.. let me know what u think.... really

It's not about what they Do... it's about what they CAN do.

Zod can make Any item indestructible. Including ethereals which have increased Base Stats.

Vex is used in Runewords, and can be a very powerful component in those items. (HotO, Botd, Exile)

anyway, this is OT, and should have such in front of the thread name. That being said...

Lets talk about what Arkaine's has. +1 or 2 skills, 30% FHR, Indestructable (and thus can't spawn ethereal), some +life/vita and a wicked high clvl requirement, not to mentin the 165 str req.

There are SO many better armors better than that. Here's a small (and cheap) list...

Lionheart Runeword
Smoke Runeword
Gloom runeword
Vipermagi
Guardian Angel
Duriel's Shell

I'm not even going to mention the more expensive options.

That said, hardly no one uses Arkaine's anymore unless they are playing legit Diablo I, back when you got it from killing some horned demons and placing blood stones in the blood fountain. "May the Spirit of Arkaine Protect me..."

As for the Zod, it is versitile. It can go in anything, and it involved with one of the most powerful runewords in the game. Basically this rune makes near-worthless things extremely valuable (think of a non-self repairing ethereal godly rare).

Same thing with Vex. It is involved with three very powerful runewords (HotO, Exile and BotD), and this is why it is expensive. I don't know the exact trade values because I avoid Bnet like the plague.

If you are pissed of about thie prices of stuff on Bnet, just quit it alltogether and go SP.

lol it spawns in 1.1 only? or did it change in 1.1? thats what im assuming
 
It means that version of it spawns in 1.10.

Overpricing is weird, usually related to dupes bots, supply and demand.
Vex - least duped rune, most in demand for hoto and botd
Arachnid - Pindle can't drop, all the pub bots are pindle, so expensive on non-ladder, but on ladder where people mf themselves in places like pit, meph, etc, they are a lot cheaper.

Yes, yes they have.. And *those* valors, depending on what class they are, *really* cost a lot.

It's nice to see that you're posting a little more maturely, eviljr. Please, keep it up :)

You can put a Zod in an Arkaine's, but you can't put an Arkaine's in a Zod :thanks:

Off topic rant: my perfect 1.09 Valor that had +2 skills to each class was once worth a couple of high runes, until 1.10 made it completely worthless!

from the diabloii.net affiliate for diablo 1:

under quests:

Valor Armor:

You will find a book on level five of the Catacombs that will tell you of a Warrior called Arkaine whose Valor armour can be found on that level. Search the level and you should find three Bloodstones. Place these on the blood alter by clicking on it. A wall will now disappear somewhere on the level revealing a great hall. Make your way down the hall killing the demons that attack you. At the end of the hallway you will find Arkaine's Valor.

thats about it

phelix

stats for d1 arkaines:
Arkaine's Valor
Armour class: 25
+10 to vitality
-3 damage from enemies
Fastest hit recovery
None
50
none is requirements
50 is durability
