    My friend, a zealer, gave me his Chains of Honor Scarab Husk. I then traded it for a Chaons of Honor Archon Plate. Now, he's mad at me because he needed it back and he says how Scarab Husks are better than Archon Plates. But aren't Archon Plates better? Please help me or else he'll bring it up everyday at school for the rest of my life.

    Trading away someone's else stuff, is not a good thing. Archon plate has higher str requirements so this might be a problem.

    The idea of that the Scarab Husk is better, is not correct but neither wrong.

    They are different, the difference is the defense, str req and lvl req. And durability if you care about that.

    Scarab Husk:

    Defence: 369-474
    Durability: 28
    Required Strength: 95
    Required Level: 51
    0/4 Sockets.

    Archon Plate:
    Defence: 410-524
    Durability: 60
    Required Strength: 103
    Required Level: 63
    0/4 Sockets.

    Well he seems to care about the Defense, but the quality of the Chains of Honor Archon was exactly the same as the Husk

    Chains of Honor has a clvl req of 63 by itself (ber rune), so the only thing is str req.

    Speaking of ladder trading experience, people dont usually care as much about requirement and pick their armor runeword items, based on their skins. So, archon plate looks just great on necromancer if you ask me, that is why I only build/buy enigma in AP.

    Well, he's either delusional or just thinks maybe the Husk looks cool. Idk.
