    To be perfectly honest, running Darkrunner with anything other than leather is silly. You'll still go down pretty fast. At least if you have leather you can do better damage.

    Try and max out your toughness to survive better.

    If your heart is set on plate, go Abolisher instead. I find that the skill sets and toughness give you more survivability than purely gear. I play Skullknight and Enigmatist with almost the same gear. As Skullknight I can take a beating from 4 or 5 people at a time. As Enigmatist I go down VERY fast if I'm caught out.

    V1 head/chest/hands, then 3-set Hexbane (boots/waist/wrist), Life + Dream/Holy rings.

    It is the great philosophical concept of trying to find a way beyond the horizon knowing full well you never actually will; the essence of a journey measured not by when but by why and how. Beyond that, I won't explain myself further. Those on the bus will understand, those who isn't will probably not. I'm good with that.

    As a mage, I approve of more Darkrunners going plate.

    go leather tbh... going plate really won't change that much in a form of survivability.... and plate is imbalanced you will still get blown up easier by mages.... i agree with xiomaro tankiness relies more on the class than the gear.

    Kanon wrote an excellent guide for Plate use that should answer all questions regarding it's use and the classes that are good with it.

    Consider any regrading as a bomb waiting to go off, with fail-safes that will trigger the explosion even if you disarm it. Randomly of course.

    false, what most people don't know is, flame plate is the overall best option for a DR.

    Leather DRs get melted by everything, do slightly more damage due to the crit dmg bonus from the leather set buff. Plate DRs get melted by mages (assuming shrug off etc) but survive vs other DRs, archers, abolishers, etc.

    Plate is your best bet for an "overall complete" set.
    Yes, I just kicked you

    Plate darkrunners are surprisingly effective, unlike leather darkrunners, plate darkrunners arent going to be lit up instantly when they get ambushed by another darkrunner and a 6.5k gs darkrunner in flame is going to die just as fast against an equally geared mage. It is true that you lose out on some pretty nice leather bonuses, but you gain more parry, more physical defense and additional health from not only the 5% bonus, but the celestial/divine buff gives more hp overall, one thing to consider as well is that the obsidian cuirass gives a large amount of melee attack which cannot be gained in the same slot if you are a leather DR.

    i think in terms of being a pure damage dealing glass cannon, leather is better, but for a more balanced DR who is much better against other physical damage dealers, plate DRs are viable.
