In regards to today's update on the test server:

Kalgan wrote:The current build has about a third of a soon-to-be very large number of item changes (nearly every level 70 epic item in the game is in the process of being updated). Don't base much off of what you see there this weekend.

qq that Libram of Repentence is in the ss but wasn't changed :(

hmm this is going to be tough between Coldarra and Sha'tar...

Sha'tar:
+11 stam
+3 dodge rating

Coldarra:
+610 armor
+31 block value
+11 defense rating


3/18.9 dodge rating = 0.1587 avoidance.
11/2.37 defense rating = 4.64 = (4.64 x 0.04) x 3 (miss/dodge/parry) = .5566% avoidance



So in total Coldarra has
+610 armor
+31 block value
+0.3981% avoidance (not counting block)
-11 stamina


Think 11 stamina is worth the buff to the other stats? hmmm...I need 33 more badges now :P I just got my 50th for my helm last night...that's another thing I gotta compare...

gaaaaaaah

I just did all that work and now I find a ss where they changed Sha'tar too :evil:

SO.

Coldarra now:
+203 armor
+16 block value
-12 stam
+9 defense rating
-3 dodge rating
(so +0.29699% avoidance)

Hmm...now it's 203 armor for 12 stam and a little more avoidance...

Well armorsmithing stuff is buffed a little too, but not that much.

Seems like they're trying to make up for the alchemy nerfs by buffing itemization.

They think they're being good to us with these, I suspect:

Boots of the Righteous Path
955 armor
34 Sta
26 Int
23 Defense
26 Spell Damage

Bracers of Dignity
608 armor
30 Sta
12 Int
21 Defense
19 Spell Damage

Nothing I'd use over Boots of Elusion and Bracers of the Green Fortress, sadly.

The Violet Signets got buffed to the point where I think I'll actually go get mine. The Protector rings now go...

Armor 350/371/392
Stamina 33/36/37
Defense 16/18/19

Wow, item buffs are incredible. Lots of stuff listed on http://www.mmo-champion.com

One unique effect the buffs have that is very welcome to us Tankadins is that it will now be much easier for us to reach uncrushable.
