Upgrading items

Upgrading items

I want to upgrade a zaka but I im not sure about the upgrade calculations..

Lets say you have two zaka's you wanna upgrade a 150ed and a 175ed one
If you upgrade you get a random extra defense right? or extra ed? Anyway could it be possible if you have upgraded the two zaka's and the one with the lower ed gets higher def when upgrading then the 175ed one.

So I want a upped zaka, should I upgrade a 150ed one or aim for a high as possible (200ed) zaka?

stats are not rerolled when up'd only the base lvl of the item is changed
hoz reqs will go up dramatically

formulas should be close
exceptional hoz
def = (168+1)*(100+ed)
lvl = 38
str = 89

elite hoz
def = (193+1)*(100+ed)
lvl = 61
str = 142

im not sure on how the smite dmg and chance to block are calculated

The upgraded HoZ will get the smite damage and chance to block of the upgraded base shield, zakarum shield.

The base defense is rerolled, so you won't get max defense plus 1 on the upgraded item.

if an armor has the edef mod it automatically has (max def+1)*(100+ed) iirc
That is correct, when the armor drops.

When you use the upgrade item, the defense of the item (in this case a Zakarum Shield) is random, regardless of any mods on the item.

Upgrade the higher ED one, although the defense difference between an upgraded low ED HoZ and an upgraded high ED Hoz isn't that much.
