    Enigma gives str based on character level. So that means u dont have to invest str points to use gear. BP 30 str reqs only. The other points are spent into vitality and som in dexterity (helps blocking percentage).

    also it gives them teleport which is a very convenient skill to have for just moving around/rushing

    Hmm another reason: it's cheaper than elite Enigmas.

    Using Enigma BP on a Hammerdin is ~suicide IMO. Very low def. These are mostly used on Necros, Druids, Assas.

    Since Enigma merely adds Def points rather than enhancing the def that's already there, it's not as big of a deal to go with a lower armor. Sure, it's nice to have another 350-400 Def but BP Enigmas free up a ton of Vita points for life. A BP Enigma will have comparable Def to an upped Vipermagi to give you a good idea and that's a perfectly Hell viable armor. But man I would still at least go with Light Plate for the vanity factor unless I was doing some serious duelling.

    If you str bug you can get base str and still use Archon Enigma.

    Ppl can pop you...and its more annoying to do str bug newayz. BP does look like **** but its cheap and a hell of alot easier to find when trading. Still at the cost of a few str points id go with Lp.

    Oopsie my cursing sry!!
