Equipment Question M.2


Hey all so another question just came to me.

Currently I am playing an Oracle 1.

I plan to multiclass into Barbarian and am thinking Armored Hulk.

If I spend 2PP on Masterwork Halfplate it is worth 0Gp for resale.

If i then pay 1,000Gp to make it +1 is it still worth 0Gp? or can I sell it for 500Gp? (Half of the 1k)

On another note, if I have a Dex of 12 (+1) is it worth it to drop 2PP on armor I am going to upgrade to full plate ASAP?

Let's turn to page 22 of the PFS Guide:

Once per session, you can acquire any single item of this cost or less from your faction by spending the appropriate PP. Items purchased this way are worth 0 gp and cannot be sold.

It doesn't matter what you do to it, you cannot sell it.

I would say save up for full plate and then advance it from there. I always go for the cheapest armor then save up for what I want (within reason). Reason is that its mostly high dice rolling that hits you in the begining instead of their modifiers.

Have fun with your character.

Nebten has the right of it. You can never sell an item that you acquire via Prestige.

As for spending it on intermediate armor, I agree that it's not worth it to do so. Prestige points come in at a (relatively) steady pace, while gold replaces itself faster and faster as you level. Use gold to purchase some (non-masterwork, IMO) medium armor until you have enough to buy your "final" armor.

KK, thanks guys.

If I average 350 an adventure I should hit MW Fullplate in 4 more, so midway through 2nd. thats not too bad.

My only heavy-armor-wearing PC got his when he hit 3rd, so that seems about right (I got slowed down a bit due to being unaware of wands of CLW and therefore spending a lot on potions in early levels).

Honestly I'm on the fence about the build anyway.

Currently he is a Oracle 1 (Dual cursed, Haunted and Lame)

So he has a 30 Base- 10 Lame= 20 Move- 5 Medium armor= 15' Move rate

I will be takeing Barbarian at 2nd and had planned on going vanilla for the fast movement.

But that only puts me at 20 in armor. Not a large improvement.

So now I am thinking armored hulk. Eventualy I will go faster then vanilla but will equal it at barb 2 (character 3)

I also have to decide if he is a Oracle with 1 barbarian level, or a barbarian with one oracle level.

If i go mostly barbarian I will be rage-cycling at 9th.

Honestly I'm lost with the build :)
