An idea to make the MCM worthwhile (in General)

How about we give the MCM Armor Proficiency?

Not gonna happen since it's not a supporter item.

And why does it need to be a supporter item to happen?

As usual, I will take no sides, but please explain why AP would be good on an armor that gives no penalties.

Since the McM is essentially worthless now.
It's usefulness at this point is that it's not total nerfbait like the BoE

I still see the TSA as stronger than the BoE for tanks.
I don't see it as excessive for mages, but certainly the best choice out there for them.
I dunno that I'd call it nerfbait yet.

I do not see the changes to the BOE, when the 8% dex/skill thing is fixed as overly powerful.
I think it will not be changed for a long time.
And as OB stated, the TSA is a far better tank armor.

Maybe the MCM can train/grant ability endurance relative it its + ....
Just a thought.

Perhaps the MCM could simply have its upgrade curve flattened, so that it is a low base AC armor with an easier upgrade. This makes it more effective against magical damage and less vulnerable to Shocking Grasp, so though it doesn't become *the* choice of armor for everyone, it does become a feasible choice when used properly.

Give it Steel Skin! :D

But then you've also got to consider the MC and the AC. If you make the MCM more useful, the MC will probably become useless, and you boost that, and then why bother with the AC? It'll be a loop.
how can MC become that which it already is? :P
my MC cries itself to sleep every night...

The MC always had its place for a low penalty Heavy tank, or just a heavy mage.

I'd much rather use a TSA on a heavy mage, although I do agree that the MC may see some use... if only anybody ever bothered making a low-penalty heavy tank. As it stands, that niche is so small that it's empty.
