I laughed at my own title a bit, but hey I'm looking for /assist here ;P

Is the best defensive(PDT) gear for Dark Knight augmented Cizin or are there pieces I'm not seeing?

On the other hand, whats looking hot for MDT sets? I know I need a Dring one of these days, but haven't gotten around to getting that...

Thanks in advance

Just anything with def/pdt is good for physical defense and anything with mdt/mdb is good for magical defense.

Take into account that MDT caps at 50% and Shell V provides approx 26% ~

Cizin +1 - Augments like 2 DA 5 PDT 2 ~3MDT

DT effects are more-useful as they also factor in breath attacks (which are not mitigated by MDT)

get cracking.

Cizin +1 for Body, Legs and Feet. You can use Ighwa for head, and Umuthi for hands. MDT is piss easy to cap, 26% from Shell V, 5% from Twilight torque and 5% from Mollusca back make it so you can cap both at the same time. What you should more focus on is MDB in slots that don't have PDT or MDT since now all the dangerous stuff was ridiculous MAB.

I use this at the moment. (/SAM no buffs) Def: 838, VIT +126 Damage Taken -10%, PDT-28 MDT-9 BDT-4 MDB +12. Could have better augments and defending ring.

ItemSet 311655

This is what I use on war, puts me at 50%. It can be modified easily with cizin +1 in place of agoge. Xaddi pieces R15B, in general, the bonus accuracy is very nice on the xaddi pieces over the cizin.


ItemSet 328999

MDT has 22% which will cap with shellra V

ItemSet 329000

This is incorrect. iLevel Gear as Xaddi, Cizin +1, etc, will undoubtly surpass the DEF of 99 gear such as Laeradr (body DEF:80, helm DEF: 50) even with it's - DMG %. My sets are similar to the previous posts. I used Cizin +1 for hands, legs and feet though all augmented with (PDT -4%, MDT -3%, and ACC) and Xaddi mail (Path C: Vit +12, PDT -5%, MDT -3%).

Clearly the best defensive armor for today's Dark Knight.

I remember the times when every drk used a shield for the extra hp.

The relic+1 boots are probably the best option if you have Last Resort up and don't want to click it off.

Drop the mekira body for cizin(+1 perferred) or Xaddi path C. The low base def and lack of stat vomit really hurt it as defensive piece.

Also, Thanks for that Ramyrez!

This (forgive me for not knowing how to code this right, I welcome advice and will edit lol) is a nice MDT option for body:

My whm buddy wants me to wear it when I use souleater in yorcia delve entirely for his benefit.
