    There's no need for 'enhanced defense' (ed) mod on an eth armor, normal armors can be bugged as well.
    For 4 sockets armors, just make Stone runeword, then remove it with Hel + tp scroll in cube, repeat 1 more time, till base defense of the armor hits 2037, then make Fortitude.
    For 3 sockets armors, the process is the same, only the runeword is Duress and it may take one more repeat, again till it hits 2037 base def. At the end, make whatever runeword you wanted in the first place (the usual are Duress and Treachery).
    The final defense of the bugged armor comes from the '+xxx% ed' mod of the runeword. An example: say you made Fortitude, which gives +200% Enhanced Defense; this means that the armor will have 100% base defense + 200% from the rw, which is 300% final defense. If you followed the steps, the armor would have 2037 x 3 (this is the translation of 300% ed) = 6111 final defense. It could be a bit higher, as @Kefflar32 mentioned, if you use a superior eth armor that has some +ed, but the increase is fairly small.
    If you do not arrive to this number, you're doing something wrong.

    Just to add to this a few more informations :

    The same thing can be applied to eth shields just the runewords are different for 4 sockets shields you need EXILE runeword for 3 sockets shields you need ANCIENT'S PLEDGE or SANCTUARY

    Also helms (as the last piece of armor that can be eth bugged), but don't remember the rw's; they should have the +ed% mod, in order to get the eth bug, that's the rule for all items. This also applies to eth uniques.

    On helmets prefer to use cheap but it will be needed to bug several times - Nef Sol Ith

    Most likely you are doing something wrong, you need to put item+hel rune+tp scroll in cube and hit transmute. Make sure to have only these items in cube.

    Thanks for this, it's been great fun mucking around with it.
    I'm about to try Exile and unless I'm wrong the only way to upgrade is repeatably making Exile, there is no cheaper option?
