    the highest ive ever seen was a sup eth 903 def krakenn. the highest possible would be 15% sup eth sacred i guess. eth str req on it is 222 though.

    im not sure how you calculate sup and eth, assuming they dont build off of each other (in which case the def would be even higher), you can get a 990 sup eth sacred.

    o.o

    Sacred armor can have 600def when perf. Ethereal is then 900 def.

    Superior can add 15% ed = 1035 def for ethereal 15% ed Sacred armor.

    Now if you look at the Stone RW, it can add max 290% ed for perf. stat.

    So the total def. on perf.def Stone sacred 15 would be:
    1035x3 + 931=4036def

    Correct me if I am wrong ;).

    Yes, Larzuk always gives the maximum number of sockets if the item to be socketed is normal, superior, or ethereal (he'll also give the maximum sockets to a cracked item but why the heck would you want to have those socketed?)

    Finding an ethereal sacred armor is going to be a needle in a haystack (not impossible, like finding a Zod, but difficult...you may find one but I bet it won't be perfect).

    are you sure the 15% sup modifies the eth bonus?

    After months of 0 mf trips to the pits youll kill a minor boss and there, lying on the ground amidst all the carnage, white stuff and clutter your eye will fall upon an superior sacred armour lying in the pits.


    A)Yes its superior! :) (check for %15 ED)


    B)Yes its ethereal and 15% :clap: (check for total defense)


    C)Yes its 1035 :jig: (Omgg!)


    D)Yes its got one socket already. :rant:


    To be honest I'd find something godlike and trade for it.

    Isn't it like this?

    =>600 defense
    +50% (ethereal bonus)
    = 900 defense
    +15% (superior bonus)
    +290% (stone enhanced defense)
    (305%)
    = 3645

    Flux has it right. But get RTB and peeps to check. Since i think theres soemthing like max base defence+1 for superiour armours.

    Afaik the highest defence any armour can get is around 3500 (maybe 3700 upper limits)

    Who_OpS I forgot the superior 15% ed bonus simply adds up with the RW. My mistake :p.

    No, just armors which are supposed to have max 4 sockets. You can find a full list here.
