    Worth Upping This Item? O=;;

    So yeah, I just recently found this wonderful little gem. ^^

    Question: Would it be worthwhile to Up this? I remember hearing somewhere about Eth Unique armors losing their Eth bonuses when upped (or was that an older patch?), has that been fixed now? O=

    Just need to know, I've got the runes/gem ready to go. ;D

    I thought there was a bug to make it even better. I zeal dueled this guy and i couldn't do much to him. I asked to see his equipment and he had a 1900 def zodded eth shaft. NICE!

    That "bug" only exists with regular plain ethereal armors

    by socketing them in the cube the ethereal bonus is applied again making the defense of the new socketed ethereal (non-magical) item even higher

    as for the eth shaftstop yes upgrade it !

    I would definately have upped that one. Upping armors isn't very expensive anyway, so...

    noob

    have not been around the last few patches, what do you mean exacly by "upping" the armor? guessing its a cube recipie that adds something to the armor. But what exacly does it do, and what is needed, what kind of rules apply to it.

    Boo-yah! Upped it and now the Shaft is sitting pretty with 2330 defense. ^^

    Also, the durability went back to the normal 45 total, so the durability is now 41/45 instead of the 23/23 before upgrading. Is that supposed to happen? O=;;

    Apparently the durability is randomly chosen from the max possible when it upgrades. Interesting, I did not know it.

    About the up-an-eth armor bug;

    Someone's explained this really well before, but I can't find the thread...even though I just read it yesterday...

    Anyhow, when an ethereal item was upgraded before 1.11 (the newest major patch), the ethereal bonuses weren't added to the upgraded item, so it was basically just increasing the strength requirement on a lower-defense armor.
    Another bug was added when they fixed that one; now using the recipe for adding sockets to a normal, ethereal armor multiplies the newly socketed armor's defense by 150% - thus an ethereal 700 defense hellforge plate becomes 1050 defense after it's cubed.

    That's the secret to 4k stones and 2.5k prudences, folks.

    The downside of the socket cube recipe is that the number of sockets is random. So that Vortex pally shield or Archon Plate could end up with a worthless single socket. Still, the upside...:thumbsup:
