BEST upgraded armor?

#1velvet_hammerPosted 10/12/2011 5:44:33 PM
Trying to finish my PvP set up. At the end of the game. Whats the best armor? I have Smoughs but its not upgradeable and I can only wear it IF I'm using havels ring. I'd like to use a different ring. Or if theres an armor with even better stats when upgraded I may keep the ring on.

I know Black Iron fully upgraded is among the best, just not exactly sure where it ranks.

I like fully upgraded Elite Knights armor, it's got high armor, and not very heavy to use.

Havel's Armor has the highest Poise, also the highest weight.

Upgraded Giants armor has the highest defense (I think). It is slightly better than Smough's armor and a bit lighter.

Dunno what armor is best for magic resistance.

...Smough's might just be better than Havel's armor, and I do believe it's heavier. God does it look horrible though, last time I ever summon phantoms to help me ease my way through a boss fight I've easily beaten before ><.

Smoughs has better stats AND is a tad lighter. Both cant be upgraded, I'm see theres some set when fully upgraded has better stats. I'm going to take a look at giants armor didnt know this was one you can upgrade. it is pretty heavy though

Stone Giant Armor was also surprisingly interesting when I found it and still could be useful once upgraded...though I'm not too sure about it.

Unfortunately, all of my twinkling ores are caught in my pursuit of Maxing out the Brass Armor, because damn do I love how it looks.

It doesn't have the light armors but from the looks of it, Giant seems like one of the bests.

If you don't want the stamina regen penalty, then wearing the Black Iron with different leggings seems to be the way to go.
