First off, thanks to NuSair - I snagged his general idea for the spreadsheet layout. I am working on fencing sampire and had stormgrips and leggings of bane arties already. So I've decided to craft 3 woodland pieces to complete the set and include here a general idea of what I will imbue. What do you all think of it? I've got a couple questions for the experts. 1. I have enough stamina for 1.5 swing speed on leafblade. I plan to use Gr. Agility potion. How much dex will that add and will it be enough to swing leafblade at max speed, deal with some stamina loss and not require SSI on weapon or do I need to add some SSI into this suit? An alternative to SSI would be drop str to 120, dex up to 125, imbue 8 dex on ring and bracelet instead of str and use Gr. Strength potions and/or petals to bring str back up again however then I will still be only 178, 2 shy of 180. 2. Do I have enough HP? Are there "magic" numbers that people use for all stats? e.g. I assume I want 150 str if at all possible because this is max str and gives damage bonus that is not capped. 3. The spell focusing sash won't do something wonky to my chiv spells like EoO wil it? 4. 120 fence, bush, tact, anat, 60 parry 99 necro, 81 chiv - is that enough chiv or do I need 84? 5. Besides gm carp, woodworker's bench and 30 exceptional talisman, anything else I can do to increase my chance of making exceptional woodland armor? Any hints on how to get a +30 talisman? Should I see if I can buy one? Would it be horribly expensive (on Pacific)? 6. (apologies beforehand - this is my thinking out loud question) I was thinking to use stormgrips in hopes of getting 100 DI on suit and freeing up another spot on weapons (especially nice if I also don't need SSI). But they are definitely not helping my fire resist much and I didn't actually manage to make 100 DI, I have 84 though which means only need 16DI on weapons. It looks like this way I can max out HML, HSL, HLA and use a major slayer and I'll still be under weight. If I take out the stormgrips I won't be able to do that even if I max out DI on my jewelry (this way I'd be 65DI and need to imbue 35DI on weapon but I can only use up to 25 DI and still max those properties). Of course, if I'm wrong and I would actually want HLD instead of HLA I can put only 16DI on weapon to get nearly max (49) since it has higher weight. This is with a super slayer though. If I do a minor slayer then I can have HLD with 25 DI and go up to 35 DI using HLA. 6a. So an actual question is do I want HLA or HLD on weapon as a final property? 6b. The above rumination is for my leafblade. My kama I should put a hit area instead of HLA/HLD. With max hit area, HML, HSL and major slayer I can have up to 30 DI and stay under weight. So I can have all max if I keep the stormgrips but not if I get rid of them. Hmm. Perhaps I should look into reforging pieces for DI.
