Upgraded HoZ So I traded for a HoZ. Used Larzuk to socket it. Dropped in an Um rune. Everything going well so far. Then got a P diamond, a Lem and a Ko and upgraded it to a zakarum shield. Smite damage went up, strength requirement went up, dexterity requirement went up. The defense went from 487 to . . . .487! Am I missing something or shouldn't the defense have gone up proportionately? I'm confused as to why this happened and a little pissed too. It's still a sweet sheild but i upgraded it for the defense not the smite damage. Does upgrading a shield not increase the def? Is it a bug? Not much i can do now but can someone please explain this.
