Legendary Armors seem dissapointing thus far

A friend and had been playing with the delving bench and finally had the stroke of luck of getting a recipe. Using Epic Cimmerian Armor, after two delves we got the recipe for Chieftain’s armor. After the very slow process of building up the materials and building the actual armor, we slap it on and realize it has LESS armor than the set used to discover it (and had to be repaired twice thanks to it), the weight increase brought my character from 56% encumbered to 97%, and has significantly less durability. I scanned some of the other sets, now curious, and find that in most cases the legendary armors are inferior to the armor used to unlock the recipe, despite being more expensive and tedious to make.

I am hoping that this is more a symptom of this being the early access and that the final figures have not been decided on, but it feels pretty demotivating to put in the effort for a “legendary” armor, only to find that frankly, it sucks compared to options we get just from hitting level 60.

Was it epic flawless? The epic flawless variants give +15 to their respective stats, so if they’ve got lower armor/higher weight or whatever it’s more than made up for it by the builds made possible by all the free points.

I wouldn’t know though because I’m living that tier 1 armorer life. Gotta get a named armorer to make the epic flawless and then you’re cruising. The frost giant armor is like, +8 to strength + 7 to vitality, it’s crazy. Want to get my hands on the war court set with +15 to strength and give that a shot too.

Then consider the armors that give +2 to all stats (more or less). Couple that with a full array of buffs, and the new siptah weapons that also give +2 to all stats when equipped, suddenly you’ve got +7 to nearly every stat. You can pull off some crazy builds with stuff like that.

Also, you can get these recipes from certain boss drops as well, so you don’t need to delve exclusively, there are a few videos out with boss loot tables. You can get quite a few really good sets of gear from them (or their recipes anyways).

they give higher overall attribute points… so to “balance” it out they lowered the armor/dura/etc. the armor difference between old/new heavy epic sets is 2%…
even standard new epic sets give stats like +5str/+5vit for example.
they are far superior to old armors, without question.
