Right, so since you guys on the boards have educated me I now have a totally new outlook on crafting armour... I have never made gargish armour but I am planning on making my disco archer into a thrower.... I will start with mack and shields and looking at the base resists of gargish armour I have come up with the following. I am at work so have limited internet access but basically i did the following math. 350 resists needed for all 70's M&S + Pieces crafted from leather, + exp/arms lore bonus + Enhance = 313 resists. So am i right in thinking that if I were to get the right spread on base resists I could hit all 70's in all resists with only 37 points worth of imbued resists?? I know there would be a lot of time spent crafting the base pieces for the right spread then there is the gamble that I will have to remake due to reforging but seriously if i am correct (its been know to happen from time to time) I could make a REALLY powerful suit based on these numbers. I consider myself a student in crafting and am looking for you guys, my teachers, to shed some light on this way of calculating resists. also am I right in thinking that if i wanted 10 LMC and HCI on the pieces I would need to reforge with a horned runic and use a scorcery reforge and cross my fingers that the random mod was HCI?? I am sooo hooked on crafting again... all my characters are becoming tools to keep this guy full of gold and mats!
