I've found dragon barding very useful for my swordsman as it really absorbs a lot of damage. I've only found basic info on dragon barding on stratics and on uoguide it says that ore colour provides no difference in protection which I also understand (10% damage absorption for non-ex, 20% absorption for exceptional regardless of colour). So I've always purchased iron dragon barding as it is usually cheaper and provides 12,000 Armour Points before crumbling. However I've now just learned that the Armour Points provided by exceptional Shadow Iron dragon barding are 17,000, so it will last a nice while longer. Does someone have (or can point me towards) the Armour Points info for each ore type, regular and exceptional? Thanks.
