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.lCE said: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.
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.jordy666 said:why ?
i dont think that the extra 1k def justify the loss of massive str/frw/life. or 100 life and 160 ed
40/15 max DONT WORK !!!xpumafangx said:
It seems that still remain someone, who doesn't know about the ed/max damage bug on armors! :lol:xpumafangx said:
definitely not jeweler armor. It doesnt do well as it does on zon, use either enigma or fort.inkanddagger said: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.Beowulf said: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.
