Bracers of the Green Fortress 2.1

Postby Lorath » Sat May 12, 2007 3:01 am

Has anyone heard if Bracers of the Green Fortress gets any buffs in 2.1? I've searched the news but sofar haven't seen it mentioned yet.

The reason I wonder is because I have the Vambraces of Courage in bank, and if Fortress isn't getting buffed, Courage with Enduring Talasite socketed will be much better.

Bracers of the Green Fortress
581 Armor
+39 Stamina
Equip: Increases defense rating by 17
Equip: Increases your dodge rating by 10


Vambraces of Courage (2.1 version)
634 Armor
+33 Stamina
--Yellow Socket
Socket Bonus: +2 Dodge Rating
Equip: Increases defense rating by 15.
Equip: Increases the block value of your shield by 33.

Enduring Talasite
+4 Defense Rating, +6 Stamina

Courage with an ET will have: +53 armor, +2 def, +33 block value, -8 dodge compared to Fortress.

I'm debating what I'm going to socket my Vambraces with. Right now, I'm not seeing a lot to be gained by going with an Enduring Tal over a Solid Star. 4 defense rating and 2 dodge rating just don't seem like a worthy trade off for an additional 6 stamina.

I guess it depends on the rest of the gear from the crush pov. The socket bonus is as usual, neglectable. I mentioned the ET gem specifically for a direct comparision against the Fortress, with ET they have the same stamina. Solid Stars ftw when you have enough of the other stats already ;)

Gems can of c be easily replaced later aswell. :)

I'd keep both, fights like prince phase 2 i'd use green fortress. Anything that hits like a punce, moroes or soemthing, id use courage.
