Base Stats Edit
Chainskin is one of the best Super Rare crafts in the game, providing excellent utility for multiple heroes and staying viable all the way to level 55. Its 5% faster cooldowns can provide faster healing for Cleric, faster attacks from Shaman, faster Call to Arms usage for Warmaster...the list goes on. The extra health and resistances rival even the Tier 2 Epic Chain armor, Keldis' Raiment, which provides 600 health but only 8% resistances. The Tier 3 Epic Chain of the Wretched eventually outclasses Chainskin in every way, with the one exception being Zaluss The Demolisher -- Warmaster does more damage with Chainskin than with Chain of the Wretched due to bugged damage calculations with negative Armor (caused by stacked Sunder) and the armor penetration buff on the Wretched.
