Jump to: navigation, search

These perks are setup in such a way as to always have the highest ranks of Biting, Crackling, Impatient, and Relentless on the armour. Furthermore, there are many secondary armour perks that can be pairied with Biting and Impatient. The last armour perk slot is suggested to be the highest rank of Invigorating and its many possible combinations with secondary perks or a more defensive choice, Enhanced Devoted.
