If you were stuck with only using a few sets of armor what would you pick?

Just wanted to hear what others have in mind.

Personally I would say viceroy + vigilante are great and cover a wide range of mobs with different plating.



Though sometimes I am forced to use (L) such as persues when the damage is too high ;) .



Your thoughts?

Depends entirely on what you hunt, how much you want to spend, etc etc. I could recommend Grem or Suprem but it's an entirely different budget ;)

I have used for many years pixie and ghost with sets of 5b and a set of 6a plates.....I'm not a big spender, so I use limited foot guards(angel) because the ghost feet are so expensive....

Over the years I have collected many sets of armor , which I never use.

Depending on your evade/dodge and health , which mine is 41 evade/dodge 42 with 220 health. I find Viceroy with various plates sufficient to handle most mobs from level 25 to 40 levels. For higher maturities i rely on Mayhem L or Perseus L , which will handle anything my pedcard can absorb.

When it comes to lower levels mobs up to level 25 , I find the adj resto chip as my best option without armor.

If I was forced to use only 1 set of armor, I think it would have to be Adj Nemesis for my level (L50 laser). I think with that I would have a wide range of mobs I could hunt and should be able to make it work. Of course, if my budget can afford it, Angel or Adj Angel would be much better, but if I was on a limited budget, Adj Nemesis would do.

For someone below level 40, there are cheaper options. One great combination of armors is Gremlin, Ghost and Mah'ketta, I'd say most players have owned these at one time or other and made good use of all of them.

The easiest and best progression for hunters is probably:
1. Pixie
2. Adj Pixie
3. Gremlin
4. Ghost +Mah'ketta for bots
or just Adj Nemesis if budget allows
5. next, Martial is a nice cheap option for bigger mobs
...
After that it's a matter of budget, availability and/or preference.

Same.

I do about 95% of my hunting in either PoE+5b, Knight+5a,, or without any armour at all. The most commonly used after that is Sala+6a. Viking and Thunderbird get to play out occasionally.

Define "stuck". If you're not marrying it, who or what is limiting you other than budget? If you still can pick, you're not stuck. Imagine being stuck not with, but without, and not even being told why. Such occurrences make one ponder about being "stuck" in a game at all. There will be repercussions. #cyrenegate

Adjusted Pixie, Hunter Mentor Edition and a (partly) Adjusted Nemesis with a couple different plates is what I use exclusively these days. Of these, only the Nem is to be replaced eventually by another upgrade path, the basics remain. Had accumulated some more armours in the past but found it's really pointless. Growing defensive skills and a decent fap fill the gaps. Where that together isn't good enough, if the equipment for a target is out of my reach, then the running budget for it also is. The latter is actually more important. You're doing the right thing using limited gear for limited pursuits.

I use Ghoul for most things, and swap to Mah'ketta if I need a bit more burn/pen. tbh my Ghoul at tier 5 is fine for burn/pen but it's simpler just to swap armours than plates :)

Acid is lacking on Ghoul, and for cut/stab mobs it's a little weak, but most the stuff I hunt can be done naked with a resto chip (140m range helps) so the armour just makes life easier.
