What kind of ACs are attainable wearing armor and using a shield?
It seems all AC-focused builds use monk and wisdom and wear nighties - is that because it is easier or can a dwarf (picking a race which can increase max dex bonuses) with armor and shield just not compete?
I don't really have experience building for AC but i'd think items like Cavalry Plate, dodge-crafted Wind Bracers, Min2 HP item, 3pc epic Abishai set, Stalwart set should be useful? Not sure where to get dodge+4 from though...
I bet there are threads about this but haven't found them - links would be helpful
