    What exactly is the Enigma Armor?

    Always hear ppl talking about it, but I couldn't find it in the Unique item list on battle.net/diablo2exp, which is not very user-friendly because it doens't provide any searching functionality. Can anyone answer my question? Thanks.

    While we are on the subject, a question I had about it...

    I have heard people mentiong wanting High Enigma..

    So, does that mean that it adds to the defence that the armor used in making it already has ?

    Should I use the highest def 3 socket armor I find for it ?

    You should ask yourself this first what type of Character? Barb if so the highest possible defence for it would be good. Heavy armor requires a lot of strenght.

    I was tossing that thought around already. For my barb I guess I'll start looking for High def 3 socket armor now...

    i found a high defence 3 sock superiror boneweave the other night 588 defence. the strenght isnt bad at all 158. my enigma has 1352 defence on it.. more than my upgraded shaftstop :) i just had to put it in the boneweave cus they look cool on pallies. :D

    but yeah its awesome for the teleport when ur in a bad situation. i also like the added strenght the added life damage reduce is always help.. and the +14 to life after a kill is pretty nice if ur a hammerdin with no life leech :)

    Use the lowest strength armor you can find while maintaining a high defense.

    The defense you should be aiming for is 400 at a minimum. Dusk Shroud and Archon Plate are pretty much the ONLY choices for Enigma that will leave you with _any_ hope of resale whatsoever.

    Although for some reason people like breast plate Enigma. Blah.

    this is a bit over exaggerated. I could easily sell my enigma sacred armour for at least the value of the runes in the word, because a decent 'barb' enigma i.e highest def without caring bout str req, is pretty rare. My sacred has base def 594 which you cant beat without going into superiors.

    Breast plate enigmas are very handy for necros becuase they can wear them on base str which means more life / mana which is key to a good necro. unfortunately the on realm diablo players will call you a noob for having enigma in a breast plate - annoying how they dont know anything bout the game dont you think?

    enigma has a lot of nice mods, it is a runeword, incredibly expensive and considered generally the best armor. the main reason to get enigma would be for it's teleport

    What I have always been asking myself: would it be possible to Enigma for example a 3 socceted Natalyas Shadow, to create an uber Assassin armor, while keeping the mods of both the runeword and the set?

    You can't. Runewords only work on "grey" socketed items. That is, no Uniques, sets, crafts, rares, etc, can get runewords bonuses into them. That would get too overpowered right? :thumbsup:
