What offers the best possible upgrade to light? Exotic helms, bracers, or chestplates?
Man I feel like a dork
All standard legendaries cap out at 27, all raid gear and exotic pieces cap at 30. Raid gear and exotic armor all have the same defense value per segment, so the only difference between an exotic and a raid piece is the effects and the sub stat values. When it come to your loadout,you should consider an exotic piece that benefits your sub class and then raid gear for the other 3 slots to maximize light level and beneficial effects. As the nerd loser I am right now have 4 different exotic armors, 2 heads and 2 bodies, for different situations. Mostly though, I use the armamentarium for titan cuz of fhe extra grenade and heavy ammo. I also have 2 full sets of raid armor for my titan...so yeah....loser nerd status, lol.
