    I have always thought that upping wasnt a good addition to 1.10, too many ways to mess up good items :D .

    Upgrading armor can improve the defense (except for Ethereals) at the cost of higher strength, you just have to weigh the options.

    Well, it depends on the item you upgrade. Some are quite good to upgrade, some are not :p
    The best items to upgrade IMO are : Gore Riders (for kicksins), Goldwraps (for 4 potions rows), Shaftstops (up to 1600+ defense for mercs), and plenty of nice weapons (Ribcrackers, Titans, Witchwild Strings, Hone Sundans, etc...).
    I even upgraded an Oculus for the fun. Heh, I love the item name "Dimensional Shard" :lol: !

    Don't forget Steeldriver and Bonesnap!! These are JUICY at clvl ~30 when they become available! Upgrading those twice, I personally never tried, but some day I will.

    And then there is of course rares with the "wrong" base item. Ever find something like

    "Death Cleaver"
    War Axe
    Very fast attack speed
    Damage xx-xxx
    450% Enhanched damage
    +300 to attack rating
    40% increased attack speed
    +20 to maximum damage
    Repairs 1 durability in 20 seconds
    Ethereal (cannot be repaired), socketed (2)

    then you know what to do!!

    I have an ethereal, rare "Death Cleaver" two-handed sword. It has crappy mods, but I can rightfully call it an ethereal DC :D

    You need Ko, Lem and and Pdiamond for upgrading exceptional armor. If it still won't work, there are two explanations for this:

    1. You have to upgrade it from normal to exceptional first (Tal, Shael, PDiamond).

    2. You are on non-ladder where you can't upgrade exceptional uniques to elite.

    Melt!

    Weapons are the first items to be upgraded, even during the ladder season, not just at the end. OTOH, armors usually aren't worth it unless you have a pretty explicit reason, such as wanting a Skin Of The Vipermagi wyrmhide regardless of resistances and MDR, or that Goldwrap.

    *Breaks out blow torch, aims at Frosty* Wasting an all-valuable PUL on a weapon that isn't used for melee.
