    We need to know the rest of your build and equipment to answer that question.. all aside though, both armors are poor choices for a wolf, he cant really use the high defense the carapace offers u and you waste the most precious asset wolves have - life, by putting str points to wear the carapace. Ditto for levi, high def and str are of no use to u, if u need pure dmg reduce, shaft is a much better choice (60 life gets boosted by lyc + oak bonuses).
    Imo best armor is enigma though, u can go base str wearing it, it gives u 45% frw which is very important to a wolf since they lack mobility skills (dont count on feral rage, there isnt always a minion or a monster to charge on) and 2 skills help your AR life and damage.

    I guess it would depend, but while enigma is a good choice as already mentioned, then another highly desirable choice would be an ed/str or dex mod armor of life/stability. It can really boost your damage up and the life is good, too. Really only good for pure "melee" duels, but there are others where it suffices.

    Lionheart still remains nice, enigma, Chain of Honor and even Duress are nice.

    enigma overall. Eth valor is the best when facing melee.

    why ?

    i dont think that the extra 1k def justify the loss of massive str/frw/life. or 100 life and 160 ed

    the def in melee. Eth valor cost 155str to equip, also provide fhr & more life. (+vita, and u will need the fhr from it) u dont really need frw in melee duels.

    Enigma is the best overall. (since druid cant achieve high def like pally or barb) fort in ladder.

    I would have to agree that there are much better armors then a valor, etheral or not. If you want the fhr and defence (even though the extra defence makes no difference really for a wolf) then get a stone.

    I would use 3 socted jewelers of the whale 3x40/15 max damage jewels. That would work just fine. More damage giving and life giving then a fort.

    the top armors are are of the jewelers variety:

    jewelers (4 sockets) armor of the whale/titan/precision/stability (depending on what you need, and what weapon you built to)

    custom socketed with 120 max damage, 160ed/36 strength, 160/40min (although bugged works better than 160/60max)

    you get the picture right?


    if you can't afford these I would say either enigma or duress. enigma >valor for the strength (strength = ed) bonus.

    nah, the +2skills, fhr, def, and +vita eth valor beats stone by miles. Unless is an eth bugged stone then it would be great.
