Hey, so I got a warrior armor from hero's remains on depth 14 & beat the 4th boss in it. I got the armor kit and thought of upgrading another plate, but turns out you can also use it on the epic one? (It's still cursed btw.) I'm not sure what to do now, cause I don't know how it's going to affect the epic one. I was also thinking of using it on a +3 plate and then reforging them at the troll blacksmith after getting the amulet of yendor and running for my life to depth 1 (I completed the quest but didn't reforge anything). Anyone maybe tried it? I'm not sure what to do and if any of it will even work
I don't know if you are playing a mod, but in Original PD you can't upgrade or forge an epic armor (the second also applies to most mods). For Original PD you can read this for details https://pixeldungeon.fandom.com/wiki/Armor_kit If you are playing a mod, you will have to specify which, in order to get relevant advice.
Yeah, upgrading the +3 plate and then applying the armor kit to it is the best solution in these circumstances, making the armor epic also stops degradation. Just be sure that you have upgraded it to the max level you want, because you won't be able to upgrade it after it becomes epic. Upgrading the armor will for sure remove the curse, and I am almost sure that turning it to epic will also do that, but I am not 100% sure.
