I don't know if this is the right place for this..
but..
What IS max AC? And what items could be used to get this? What's the best combination of items for any one given path or for anyone?

If I heard it right.. They used to be -85. Words come and go and say that it's -80 now.

For a mage.. I can easily get -85 with:

Sunrise fan (I'll get -86 with a fox blade.. =p)
Level 97 shield
2 corrupted rings
2 red boots (or black will do, same -ac reward)
Totem helm (or subpath helm, or clan helm)

Then again, you'd still want to get as HIGH ac as possible, so when you are scourged, you'll still have as high ac. I don't know if -85 is the damage reduction cap (or like I said, it could be -80). But if you can get.. Say -135 ac, with scourge alone (+50 = -85) = which will still get you the max damage reduction possible.

I don't know.. Highest AC?

Get a diadem (.. or a casque?)
Get pair of forsaken rings.
Boots/flutes meant for your rank.
Dragon fan (or any fan.. but for level 99, get a fox blade.)
Shield meant for your level.
Sun clothings. (armor quested- or sun armors itself. clothes, skirt, etc.)

Highest I can think of is for a warrior,

Armor:

Sun plate: -46
Forsaken ring: -16
Forsaken ring: -16
Diadem: -15 (?)
Black Sturdy Gutul: -3
Black Sturdy Gutul: -3
Titanium Shield: -9

Armor Total: -108

Spells

Armor (in asv): -10
Ensure (sam poet) : -6
Bolster (ee poet): -4

Spell Total: -20

Starting AC
At 99: +1

Grand total: -127 ac

Not sure if thats 100% correct, but it is according to NA... interesting thing is, at that Ac, while SC'd, you'd be at -77 ac, which is only 3-8 away from the total damage mitigation.... not bad.

Ensure and Bolster are not stackable and most of the time you're going to be dispelled before scourged because otherwise you'll have sanctuary cast on yourself, unless you're just worried about sam san mages scourging you.

So drop your total back down to -108

Then remember to use a weapon; Fate's blade has -10. This makes the total -118

As far as I know, there's only been one Diadem created and Fate's blade is pretty hard to get. Without them, you would have -11 for your helmet and -9 for your weapon.

So it's probably more like -113.

Starting out at level 99 with 1 AC:

1
-46 - Sun war platemail
-15 - Diadem
-9 - Titanium Shield
-10 - Fate's blade
-16 - Forsaken ring
-16 - Forsaken ring
-3 - Sam flute/gutul
-3 - Sam flute/gutul

Gives you -117 AC base.

If this is wrong, please correct

p.s. -80 is the "cap" - everyone can do at least 20% damage of their attack on you when dispelled. hence why I can double (karak-ww) some poets.

So if you have -100 AC you should not be able to take any damage? Or was that what Cho was refering to earlier saying -80 AC is max no matter what, you will always be able to do 20% if they are dis'd?

AC is capped at -80. Meaning you will always take at least 20% damage no matter what AC you are past that point. Until you get Sanc casted on you, then you would take less.

Lowest I have ever had mine was -132 AC. But that was because of a neat little bug with the original Battle Stance testings. Where it gave negative AC instead of positive with each casting. And that was without ASV on.

Ensure and bolster are not dispellable. Therefore, you can consider the -6 drop of ensure whether dispelled or not.
