    Actually:

    Vortex Shield = 225
    Ethereal = 337
    Socketed = 505
    260% ed = 1819
    (iirc Diablo ints every step)

    But, also including the 65% automod: 2147 defense would be the absolute maximum

    Oops. Forgot that the game doesn't "round" numbers the way I do. :tongue:
    The 65 ED automod is enhanced damage, not defense.

    Well, I said iirc, so I might be mistaken on the rounding part, only 99% sure :rolleyes:

    And yeah, 'ed' is damage, damn blizzard for putting 'ed' on a shield :laugh:

    Rounding happens on every step.

    I owned a 504 def 4sox vortex, but sold it.

    Maybe OT: But how do you bug an item? Cube recipe?

    I have a 4os Eth 11ED% Dusk Shroud 779 def, can I up the def by bugging it? Btw: Its self-found:smile:

    Chuck it. The bug will not work on superior armors.

    The bug will not work on _superior_ armors. It will work on ethereal.

    Bugging an item is achieved by cube-socketing it. Not only do superior items not work, but items already socketed are well-out of the running.
