I understand I don't need offensive stats as a shaman really so I want maximum con. To this end is horkval or dwarf better? Horkval does have one less intelligence though, so unless the resistances are much better than normal armour I think dwarf is probably better, but I'm curious what you guys think. I wish mhun wasn't horrible for shaman, cuz the shaman mhun art is pretty cool.
On a side note, is it still unlimited reincarnation under lvl 21?
I'm sure Sena will come in and wreck me with her math at some point.
Eta: con is probably the best thing you can go for, but there are other components to survival than just your health pool.
Penwize has cowardly forfeited the challenge to mortal combat issued by Atalkez.
When was this changed?
So even if horkval is something in-between, but closer to armour than resistances, it's still more effective than armour against denizens, where it's comparable to ringmail for blunt damage. Barring some huge unannounced changes recently.
However it works, armour vs denizen damage seems more complex than armour vs PvP damage. And then horkval remains a pleasantly simple percent reduction, like resistances.
