    It can be upgraded, to a Wyrmhide armor. (1 Ko Rune + 1 Lem Rune + 1 Perfect Diamond) The level requirement will go up to 57. The defense will be increased, but so will the strength requirements to wear it. I believe the strength requirement will be around 87. If I remember correctly, the defense can end up anywhere from around 800 to over 1,000.

    I tend to not upgrade it - I wear it primarily for the + skills and the resistances, and I consider defense largely unimportant for most classes unless you REALLY pump it (like a paladin using Defiance and Holy Shield, wearing a high roll Stone runeword armor.) I've found I prefer to wear it as it is, and use the stat points I'd have to devote to strength in order to wear it to Dexterity to max out blocking, or to Life. Just my personal preference.

    It's a really useful find, so congratulations! If you socket it with Larzuk and add an Um rune, it can go a LONG way toward solving any resistance problems in Hell. A very versatile piece!
