    upped arreats wierd stats

    I have seen many different defense of upped arreats:

    200%ed with 375 def (omfg that low~!?)
    190%ed with 415 def
    198%ed with 482 def

    When upping any unique armors, do the base defense get resetted?

    in bnet the def range of guardian crown is : 117-168

    if it was p arreats, then the def will range from 351 to 504?

    The base def of the armour will be rerolled but the EDef% remains the same. Thats why you never reroll a good % armour unless you are sure you are a lucky person :eek:

    Defense on arreats can go down when upgraded but its a small chance.
    Value goes up quite a bit with a good roll.

    Some elite class specific armor type items have minimum defenses BELOW the maximum defenses of their exceptional version. This means that an upgraded arreat or HoZ (for example) can roll a minimum base defense and be lower than their exceptional version, which defeats the whole purpose of upgrading armor (except smite damage).

    yup its quite easy to "down" something like helms, or shields (especially if its eth.. because it loses the eth bonus... which is foolish since weapons dont)... because the base defense varies. but i've got to tell you 482 def is extremely high... thats one of the highest ones i've ever seen (although its rumored they can go over 500... the math says 504 or something like that... but i'd have to see it).

    Just to clarify:

    When you have any rare or unique armor with enhanced defense, the base defense of the armor will ALWAYS be the maximum possible. However, once you upgrade that item, the base defense of the new upgraded armor will be a random number in the range of possible defenses for that item.

    200% Arreats will always be 360 defense.

    200% upgraded Arreats will be 351 - 504 defense

    Defense on non-eth Hoz will never go down when upping (it can stay the same though)
    200% non upped arreat is 363
