    1. Phase Blade - Fast and quick. Exactly what you need.

    2. Sacred Targe - Pally shield, can have +resists, the best CTB of the pally shields

    3. Archon Plate - It's light armour so it won't slow you and has low str req

    i dont agree.. i think archone plate is over rated... any "light" armor that has over 500 DEF is great.

    i have a 533 def dusk shroud that im gonna make my chains in...

    archon can be good too but its not "best" all the light eltie armors can be amazing...

    I might agree with you if the rune word in question was enigma, but it's not. Chains uses a +70% enhanced defense mod which boosts the base defense. Assuming a superior bonus of +15% edef on your dusk shroud, 463 base defense in your case. Thus, you'll be getting a 85% enhanced defense on a base defense of 463, not 70% on 533 (for those keeping score that's 856 defense rounded down as opposed to 906 the other way). An archon similar to the 533 dusk shroud (say a superior with 15% bonus and a 520 base defense) would yield a 962 defense, or +106 defense.

    In this case, I think shadow hit all the suggestions right on the head.

    I'd rather need 77 str instead of 10x for archon.

    I'd also rather use a Sacred Rondache for whatever my choice in shields, if I had a choice (which I would with a runeword).

    Rare boots (say 10), ammy (5'ish), annihilus (can be 20, lets say 15), Chains (+20)

    Str req for sacred targe = 86

    Str req for sacred rondache = 106

    With 56 base str, that would be 71 after annihilus, 76 after ammy, 86 after boots, 106 after Chains....

    You dont get my point,

    You seem rather eager of not using a arcon plate because of strength requirements. Then again you suggest a sacred rondache, and suggest + strength gear while you could have done that with an archon plate just as easy.

    If you want to keep your strength so low, you might as well go with a sacred targe.

    The sacred rondache is simply personal preference because I like the higher average damage and the cooler name.

    If you wanted the targe instead... then...

    77 - 30 = 47 str

    47 base str. With archon you would need 103 str...

    the +20 from chains has no effect,

    103 - 30 = 73 str

    73 - 47 = 26 vit = 78 life for a little higher def (on average, not true all the time) and uglier (my opinion) armor.

    Archon all the way. Dusk looks horrible, you look naked in it. It's all about the style. :xsmile:
