View Full Version : stat boosts provided from weapons/armour

Can the stat boosts that you get from weapons/armour help you equip weps and amour with higher reqs?

like for example you have 134 int normally and wield a staff that gives u +8 int. Can't you technically use a 142 int wep then?

Pretty sure you can't, however you used to be able to.
If I'm wrong I'm quite sure that someone will correct me.

I just figured out you can, but if you stats drop below that amount it become unequipped

You can stack, and do armor swaps, but it becomes annoying, and you are stuck with items that are that stat.

Before 1.3, if you had less than the required amount to equip something, but the item you wanted to equip gave you the boost you needed, you could equip it and it would stay on.

Unfortunately anything that you don't meet the requirements for now doesn't have an equip button to press, so this is no longer possible.

Boosts from buffs also don't count towards meeting requirements, though I haven't tested this since 1.3.

i have tried buffing myself and i actually need the proper stats to equip an item, not my buffed stats.
