Level 60 berserker.  Wearing cobalt.  Looking to upgrade, should I get a couple of levels and get the xegonite stuff from KoS, or is there something from EoF I should be looking into instead?  Ready to ditch the cobalt, even though I liked the look, and still do.  I am just ready for a change!About the hat.  My guy has never worn a helm (always hidden) since I hate the way the old plate helms look in general but especially on my dark elf berserker.  I missed the whole "class helm" thing and have not been able to find a place that has screenshots of them.  Is here a place that shows them all?  I specifically want to know what the berserker one looks like.  Thanks for any help.

Our class helemt is a viliking helemt with 2 horns on the side.As far as armor goes don't get the xegonite stuff it is hardly an upgrade over the cobalt, Ithink it has liek 10 mitigationmore or so, I neever wore it so not sure. Basically just start doing all the isntances in KoS and EoF and you will pickup legendary gear for all your slots.

I bought xegonite BP and legs since they were only about 70g each and am filling out the rest with looted stuff.
 
I am level 61.4 right now and finding Treasured items level 58+ that have better mit and resists than my cobalt pieces. I am losing stats, though I figure mit & resists are more important anyway.

from the sounds of it, you got prenerf cobalt. xegonite would not be an upgrade for you, so I wouldn't even worry about it. the +def would be ok I guess, but not really worth it to me to spend 50-70g for a single point of defense. you can get pretty well geared out with claymore rewards (wich kinda suck now since you can't adorn a single one of them) and legendary single grp drops.

I'm sort of curious why everynoe thinks the old cobalt armor is better than the new.  For me, as a DPS class who normally only groups, the stats are key to getting better DPS.  I've seen people with the old Cobalt armor who have the key stats of STR, AGI, and STA sometimes 100 lower because they have old mastercrafted cobalt and vanadium jewelry.

the mit on the pre nurf cobalt was so much higher that it didnt make sence to go with the Xerg stuff. i had 2 full suits made the night before the nurf update, one set i wore till i was 66, the other i sold for 11P per peice SMILEY

I posted this before changes were made to cobalt.  Xegonite still offered an upgrade over cobalt if it was worth your time or gold.  More resists, more stats fit for a zerk, more health, more power, more defense, and -7 mitigation, no wis, and no int.  (NOTE: when xegonite first came out, there were no resists and even higher stats)

Someone would have bought it.  It's better than nerfed cobalt and is good for T6 still.  As for noobs, no way man.  I didn't make any money off the change.  /notworthy
