Hit level 80 today and completed a couple of the 75+ zones 100% too. Yes, long day.
I'm now looking at the best way to get the "best" armor - stats-wise. I know I want to use the Duelist skin, of which I have got the coat and leggings for (level 78 reward for 100% area in Orr). I also want to use my starter hood skin for the head.
Preferably I'd like Beserker equivalent armours - Nika's exotic seems to be the one for level 80's? I can't afford all Nika's set from the TP, since I have only 22g, but I could get 2 or 3 pieces. Say for example I bought Nika's mask + shoulders + coat, could I transmute my starter hood to the mask, a duelist shoulder skin to the shoulders and my duelist coat skin to the coat? I think that's possible...!
Next question - could I then buy 3 pieces of Karma armor for the legs, gloves and boots and transmute duelist skins on to them? Is there a Beserker equivalent for Karma armor? I have ~120k Karma saved.
In short my question is - would it be a good idea to buy 3 pieces of Nika's armor, and 3 Karma armor pieces, then transmute my preferred skin over all 6? Am I missing the point of Karma armor?
Thanks in advance, apologies for my naivety.
Edit: Thief, so medium armor I'm talking about
