    Yes u can go higher cuz today i got into a fight with the enclave and took their tesla armor (about 3 different pairs) and i repaired mine wich WAS at 49 and is NOW at 52 so u can go higher but i think the tesla armors max is 53 if not 52

  1. Tesla COIL armor doesn't exist.
    T-51b Power Armor is the best, with a max of 50 DR.
    Tesla Armor has 45 DR

  2. the experimental armor and helm is the most powerfull in the game for heavy armor. If you want a lighter armor the Ranger Battle Armor you get for helping rilleys ranger is the best light

  3. If you want to raise your damage resistance to the max of 85% you have some work to do. You will need to do the following: take the toughness perk (+10% DR), complete the oasis quest by shooting the hart (bark skin perk +10% DR), take the cyborg perk (need to have 60 in both science and medicine but will give +10% DR), complete wasteland survival guide with all optional challenges complete and by answering questions with strong/tough answers (+6% DR). Than equip the best power armor you can get and keep repaired to best levels you can. If you do all of the above and have the experimental armor equipped at max repair (armor 50% + helmet 10%) than my math says you can have a total DR of 96% (of course it will only be 85% as that is the MAX).
    You need to know that this is a choice of play style and affects your overall game strategy right from the start. If you don't want to be that committed it is much easier to just take the toughness perk get the experimental armor and use med-X as needed.

  4. I like the ranger battle armor its quite defensive for light armor and can be repaired by using normal combat armor get it to max and its every bit as good as tesla armor but better bonuses.

  5. The T-51b Armor and helmet is the best power armor in the game, the armor give u 50 DR and helmet gives u 10 DR, but u need 3 or 4 keys to get the armor and u hav to do this quest for Mr crowely
    and it only weighs 40 lbs, which is lighter than normal power armor

  6. The best aromor i came across was the medic armor but you have to kill some deathclaws to get it. It is underground in the north east of the map i cant remember what the town is called but it is full of deathclaws and dead raiders. Oh and dont think you can hide somewhere coz they'll just hunt you down. They work less in packs. The only things that dont work less in packs are robots because they're operated to kill you no matter what.
    The armor doesn't come with a helmet but it regenerates your health, but you need to train with power armor to use it.

  7. Actually, if you complete the" shoot em in the head" sidequest and wait for Crowley to come back to Underworld, he shows off his fancy armor and brags about it. I then promptly removed it, with the aid of my ghoul badass Charon and it didn't take damage when I offed him.

  8. Like someone else said, your armor depends on your character. Personally I like the Outcast power armor (40DR) for the fact that you have 2 extra points for strentgh (=20lbs extra crap you can carry) with the torcher helmet for big guns. No need for the extra DR since they can't get close enough.

    I suit my follower up the same, then we cash in on all the extra assault rifles when Crow comes around.

  11. It mostly depends on your playing style. But lot of players - me included - uses Power Armors for their DR and RR's bonuses...And also for the menacing look.
    T-51B is actually the best Power Armor from the game, but...It's hard to get, it's an unique piece, and to repair it you'll need standar Power Armors (Not Enclave's, neither Brotherhood works...Quite annoying), which seems to be quite rare around the Wastelands, and possessed only by some merchants who'll sell it only for massive amounts of caps.
    I think also Tesla Armor works quite good, and you just have to fastravel to Raven Rock and shoot Enclave's sentries dead, then loot their armors and plasma rifles.
