    upgrading uniques, por favor

    I have a very simple, specific (and probably stupid) question about upgrading uniques. I've looked at docs & threads for clarification, but haven't found the exact answer to my dense-ness. Here goes:

    If you upgrade a unique item, does it retain its previous properties/benefits, or does it change to the properties to that of the new base types' unique? For example, I just found my second Peasants Crown. If I upgrade one does it become Harlequin's Crest, or is it still a Peasants Crown 'in a shako's body'?
    Even if it's the latter alternative, are there any stats that aren't changed to correspond to the new base type (str req., clvl req. durability, etc.)

    I suspect i'll still be searching for a HC shako, but please confirm.

    Uh, yeah, it's the latter. Otherwise we'd be hip deep in windforces and tyrael's mights by now...

    Its probably worth mentioning the whole defense rating thing. I stand to be corrected, but it goes something like this...

    When a unique with a defense rating spawns, it is given the best possible base defense for that class of item +1. When you upgrade, the base defense of the item will be randomly selected from the available range, instead of being the best possible +1. Someone else can tell you the stats, but this is why its sometimes not worth upgrading items (you can get a lower defense), since the only things that increase are the defense/damage and the requirements.

    I am fluent in three languages: gibberish, drunken-slurring, and horrible singing. Aside from those i try to get by with english (and what i can remember of grade 4 french, when the need arises).
