    Upgrading hoz...

    Hey I would like to upgrade my HOZ on USEAST LADDER. What are the runes I need to get to do this. Also my shield has 193% ehanced defense, can it actually go down in defense? Also what would be the strength requirement?

    From the blizz website it's:

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

    Search for some articles on the defense as one forum member reported that his defense actually went down. However, it's still the best smiter shield so don't throw it away if the def does go down, it will be worth something when the ladder season ends.

    sorry to interrupt you thread but i have a quick comment for ROMVS...

    ran across your name and it set of some kind of flashback...... and what came up was SPQR, but i cant remember what game i was playing at the time with you guys.......it mighthave been brood war, but i cant even remember what my name was..... i spent a lotta time playing with you guys but just cant recall what game, im almost certain it was starcraft.

    sorry for the interruption but it was a weird flashback and just had to get that out

    no, it wouldnt even get that close, my 200% upgraded one is about 580, the max output would be 582, however, an etheral one can achieve 873, but theres that eth upgrading bug everyone talks about o_O

    i think the max def on perfect non upgraded is 507 and a 193% upgraded will be from 495-565 or close to this. anywho even if u upgraded it its good for smite and like what is said b4 once ladder is over that will be a good trade item for them ppl that didnt play ladder for its great items, not only upgrad 1 but upgrad a few keep best 1s for u and when ladder is over u will have a few for trade if u still care about non ladder. i for 1 have a few friends that didnt try out the ladder and once its over ill well be comeing back to sell them at high prices :D items like deaths fathoms, griffons eye, death cleaver, and many of the upgraded exp items i have been collecting

    Sup man, ya, SPQR. We're still alive and kicking. It was either starcraft or broodwar, anti-backstabbing. Btw, PM me your account name, let's keep in touch. Peace bro, btw, if you forget who this is, this is Rom. Do you remember Morgana=X? Who else do you remember?

    You'll never go down in defense when upgrading HoZ (as long as it weren't ethereal). You HoZ, now got a 168ish defense (remember that an item with enhanced defense mod always got maximum base defense whet it spawn). If you upgrade it to a Zakarum shield a roll will be make to determine the new base defense of your shield. Zakarum shield has a defense range between 169 and 193, so you'll never get less base defense.
    Your Upg'd HoZ's defense will vary between 495 and 565. Str req. will raise up to 142.
