    Unique items upgrade

    Are unique belts, gauntlets, boots, helms upgradeable? I have upgraded my unique weapons & armors but yet to try any of the said items. Thanks.

    Upgrading increases the requirements of your items and it might not offer much of an additional benefit (or none at all!), so better find out in advance if it's worth doing it.

    well i guess i forgot to ask what the formula to upgrade these items. Pls take note I only play offline single player. I know armor & weapons formula is ort+amn+psaph or ral+thul+pamythst. but don't know the formula for the rest. Thanks in advance.

    The armor recipe applies to all type of armors (body, boots, head etc):

    1 Tal Rune + 1 Shael Rune + 1 Perfect Diamond + Normal Unique Armor = Exceptional Version of Armor

    1 Ko Rune + 1 Lem Rune + 1 Perfect Diamond + Exceptional Unique Armor = Elite Version of Armor (Single Player, Ladder Only)

    i just found some nice exceptional boots called Gore Riders. They had about 100 defense. I upgraded them and they now have 207 defense. So it was worth it since i will be wearing them.

    The strength requirement also went up significantly.

    For most characters, more defense is useless, but spending more points in strength can be a hindrance. Unless you're able to get at least 10k defense, don't bother, and it doesn't start to really help a lot until you get up to 20k (afaik).

    This is something I've read many times from knowledgeable-seeming posters, though I haven't actually worked it out myself.

    i didn't think about the strength aspect. that is true. my defense is 19k with holy shield on and 28k with defiance on as well. it will be even higher once i get better chest armor, and if i decide to use a new helm.

    Kicksins benefit from upped boots since the kick damage increases same with Shields and smite damage.
