    First and foremost, make sure you dig into ALL the changes coming up in 4.5 The game is undergoing foundation changes, very organic changes to everything.

    I suggest you start with this video:




    And then work your way through the 4.5 Skill Changes videos checking out changes to passives, skills and combos.


    You may also want to check out https://omnom.io/ and look over some of the stuff.


    Gear changes in 4.5, normal line gear gets easier to 1) make and 2) regrade


    If you need to know more, you can ping me, or jump in my discord and ask questions to your hearts content.

    Well here is the thing, you don't want to invest in a certain set of armor, if the changes coming make you think you won't be able to pull off Argent.

    A lot of things changed, you you may not want to play Argent. If you aren't going to play Argent that may change your entire outlook on gear.

    STR changing to melee crit rate, changes things a bit. Melee damage lost a lot of damage off the top, but then makes up for it with a much higher crit rate. Parry/Block those things have changed significantly.


    I would not go with Plate though. Mages already hit like trucks (I took a 66,000 meteor to the face..reduced it down to 22,000 as a tanky clothy)

    That's only going to get worse when dual wielding mages get 14 T3 gems in their main and off hand.

    Archers are going to get potent, that is for sure.

    IF you were going to go the plate route, it is possible to get above 9,000 Magic Defense in plate, so you could have sorta the best of both worlds. You end up having to have 2 shields and swap between them based on what's hurting you.
