DCI and suit building

    What are my options to get close to the 75 DCI cap?

    Atm I get 10 from night eyes, 15 from my weapon, & 5 from my quiver. So all together I am at 30 DCI. The only two options I see left are really AoF or Fey leggings, which I am trying not to use because they really make a dent in my suit planning with their poor resists. :/

    Even if I use AoF or Fey Leggings, it only pulls my DCI up to 45-50. The only way I can get anywhere close to the cap then is to equip a shield which I am trying not to do as I want to have one hand free.

    Am I missing any major piece of armor that will help me here? Is there another route besides AoF or Fey Legs?

    How about a DCI totem? Is there one?

    When you get hit by lower defense chance it drops your DCI by 30%. So 75% makes 75% makes you HLD proof.

    Not brand new, this classic shard talk has sparked my interest in UO again and I figure I'd give it a shot again. Though, I have ABSOLUTELY no clue what's going on in game now.

    Slither has 10dci?

    Lets see, faction items make it even more easy to get the dci.

    Faction folded steel glasses =25dci
    Normal folded steel glasses = 15dci
    Jewels = 15dci each for a total of 30dci
    Chest piece (aof or heart of the lion) = 15dci
    Tangle (belt slot) 5dci
    sash slot = 5dci
    Slither (Talisman slot) = 10dci
    Robe = 5dci
    Cloak slot = 5dci
    Leg slot = 20dci

    Did I leave anything out?

    I thought hld drops your defense by 25% not 30%. You should only need 70 dci. I build a LOT of pvp faction suits and never go above 70 dci.

    Conjurer's garb also gives 5% DCI. There is also one of those cloaks from turning in the threads that gives 3 HCI and 3 DCI.
