Is this fairly high for a upgraded shaftstop?

looking at arreat summit...

base defense on boneweave ranges from 399-505, and the ed% ranges from 180-220, so the minimum is 1117, and max is 1616, so you're in pretty good shape especially since the range on the armor itself has quite a big impact compared to the actual ed%

Yes, you rolled a 488ish base defense one. And as stated before 505 is the maximum.Ifrit18 said:Is this fairly high for a upgraded shaftstop?

Too? The base defense is the only thing that gets rerolled.ubernuber said:wait so the base defense gets rerolled too?

The original item has the maximum base defense + 1, plus the ED%

The upgraded item has a random base defense, plus the ED%. Also, if it's ethereal, it loses the ethereal bonus (bug).

This is why upgraded armor can end up with

All 200ed Shaftstops will have the same defense.ubernuber said:so a 200ed shaft is not necessarily the same as a 200ed one? ithought all of them were the same if same ed.

Normally, any armor with enhanced defense uses the maximum base defense + 1 for the calculation, it's not random. But when you upgrade armor, it

Go to http://www.cs.colostate.edu/~deykea/d2armours.html and you can plug in the exact ED% of your Shaftstop and calculate what the defense might be after upgrading. It will certainly be a lot higher than it is now, regardless of the bug/feature/oddity of defense being rerolled on upgrading.
