    Why're Eth Steel Carapaces so valuable

    What's so great about eth Steel Carapace? I would think that a good fortitude would be better for mercs. Do people zod them and use them in some dueling format?

    You dont need to zod it. It has "Repairs 1 durability in 20 seconds" mod just like exile.

    Does this mean that a high defense Prudence is worth more than an ecara?

    Who knows. Personally, I wouldn't use Steel Carapace, ethereal or not. But then again, a good chunk of the B.Net population have never even heard of Prudence before. :wink3:

    They'd probably ask things like: Can we make fort out of it?

    I love me Prudence. Very cheap, and if the socketing bug gives me only 2 sockets and I can't make a stone, ...

    Eth Steel carapace is popular among some bear druids as well.

    Only real answer is : High def + spare socket.

    If ecara didnt have the repair mod, egprudence will be alot better. Alot of melee char need sockets for Dr (50%), ias (+-60%) and Cbf (Cham).
