    Is it useless now to use lesser armors after introducing DEFLECTED hits?

    Being a new player I had Adj Pixie for lower lvl mobs and Viceroy for higher level mobs. But now with DEFLECTED hits the armor get much less decay, and Viceroy often gets DEFLECTED where Adj Pixie pass through some damage. So is it now still worth to use the lesser armor when possible?

    DEFLECTED just means the armor took all of the damage, which it never did before.

    The decay is less because the armor is only decaying for the damage it's actually taking, where it did something different before.

    It will be cheaper to wear both sets of armor than it was before, so if you want to stick with the heavier armor, it will cost less than it did before, but still more than the weaker one.

    You will still pay more for the increased protection of the heavier armor vs the lighter armor, so how much armor you want to wear still depends on how much protection you want to pay for vs. just regenerating your HP.

    Just to avoid confusion. You mean stronger and weaker armors, not anything to do with armor weight

    Nowadays its cheaper to armour up as much as possible unless you have a fap with over 25 heal/pec or want to use regen for free.

    wasnt there a test done where pretty much all armors had about the same cost per damage +-1-2%? that would mean it might be the best to wear the biggest armor you got as long as u dont need to heal at all. overprotetion is a thing of the past and doesnt exist anymore

    Ideal is to protect just enough that you're always missing a bit of health so that you're making use of your passive regen, but if you can't reach that sweet spot and don't have a healing tool above 20HPP you should just use your biggest armor set, yeah.

    Eco does vary between armor sets but not by a huge amount in most cases, apart from some of the armor sets having those buffs which aren't too shabby if you aren't wearing an athenic.

    Why should it be that way ???

    Different durability different costs!

    If higher durability lost its value, then something is really wrong
