In Topic: Transmute exotic armor - mix of Karma & TP

Hi all,

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 ;)

With the news of ascended items (and it being added for armors in the future), I'll personally go for the cheapest exotics you can find since you'll likely be upgrading them to ascended armors in the future.To answer your question though, yes you can transmute skins over from item to item, though you'll need the lvl80 transmutation stones for them.And I don't believe there are berserker stat'ed karma armors around.

Story of my life this, whenever I complete something the requirement, dedication or teamwork needed is nerfed or cut in half.

So I'll be expecting a compensation from Anet, one that perhaps does not effect the market. Lets say 50-75x Jugs of Liquid Karma for anyone having a legendary when they introduce the new change(s) depending on how wild they go with the nerf bat.

And yes, to realistically believe, and to hopefully expect are two very different things. I will just get screwed again, like every other time.

On the plus side of things, you did get to show it off in Lion's Arch or wherever else you were standing at. Besides, it's just a precursor change, everything else (WvW tokens, karma, etc) remains the same.

The total cost of legendaries is way too prohibitive at the moment, so I'm in the same boat as you OP.
