    Upgrading Eth Items

    Hey I had a question regarding eth items. Does the current ED on the eth item matter when being upgraded or is it solely based on the base defense of the next level item.

    Specifically I'm trying to see if there's a difference between upgrading a 166% eth arreats vs. upgrading a 200% eth arreats. Will the defense be better on the 200% arreats or could the 166% be better when upgraded due to randomness.

    the ed on upd items will remain the same, the base def will be rerolled
    the item will also get the elite reqs, lvl 65, str 196

    items that spawn with ed get a base def of max+1

    Slayer Guard has a base of 93-120, with ed = 121
    upd to Guardian Crown it would get a new base def from 117 to 168

    eth adds 50% more base def
    eth with 166 ed = 482 def
    eth with 200 ed = 544 def

    it may go up alot or down slightly depending on the new base def roll
    eth upd with ed of 166ed, min=466 to max=670
    eth upd with ed of 200ed, min=526 to max=756

    for the math
    final def = int ( base def x (1.5 if eth) x (100+ed)/100 )
    int = always rounded down (int (1.99) = 1)
