View Full Version : Ethereal Items
From some of the posts I've read here, it seems ethereal items are more sought after than regular ones. Why is this? What bonuses do they get? It's not like zod runes grow on trees...
eth items automatically get bonuses. I dont remember the exact values, but it's something like + 50% defense to armor, and something like that to weapons.
If an item has self-repair, or is indestructable, then the eth mod wouldn't matter. It would be like a free extra 50% ed.
some runewords, especially BOTD gives the indestructable modifier, that's why everyone wants a eth superweapon for that.
And to some people, zods do grow on trees. Especially non-ladder. Too bad I'm not one of them...
Eth items are also sought after for use on mercs, because the items don't lose any durability when worn by them, and as said above, have better stats than non-eth ones...
Weapons: 50% bonus to listed damage
Armor: 50% bonus to listed defense
Reasons they are perferred are listed by others. And zods do grow on far too many trees - both in ladder and nonladder because of the rune dupe that went public.
I see. Thanks.
