    what's the highest def a rare helm can get?

    found a spired helm earlier with 456 defence on it. was NOT ethereal and not up'ed. 2 to shadow disciplines or something or other. i kinda thought 456 was alot...just how damn high can it go?

    about 890 def is the highest a helm could go

    corona at 165, ethereal, 200% def, two sockets with pul runes (+30% each)

    856 would be the best for spired helms (same astronomical properties)

    This makes me wonder...what is possibly the most defense a character (Barb) can get... If you all the armors with the highest defense, ethereal, up'ed, and in some cases unique, and stick Pul runes in em...and then max Shout and Iron Skin and Concentrate...and hit an Armor Shrine...maybe even 3 if they're still bugged...well I can't do the math/research right now. Anyone else wanna take a swing at it?

    A spired helm can get 3 sockets so wouldn't that get a little bit higher def?

    Also a Eth Corona can have Starting Def of about 180 plus your Edef and 3 Pul's comes to almost 1000 def

    "Godly" and "Artesian's" are both prefixes so one item cannot have both. Jerkaziod is right, 890 is the top def. :drink:

    Well i guess thats not 100% correct - u can get 3 socket helms but u cant get 3 socket ones with the goldy prefix

    Edit

    907 is the higest def possible actually,

    The guardian crown at 168 def is highest
