Trying to figure out how this works as well. My dilemma which I posted in the newbie forums as well. I have the following boots. Can anyone explain why the orange boots which have a rating of 80 only has 125 armor vs the lvl 66 which has a armor rating of 253?
req lvl 31
Death Bringer Boots (Orange)
125 armor rating 80
Rigig Flex Boots [Exceptional] (Green)
253 Armor Rating 66
