First of all, 4 parts armor suit with 100% LRC is possible only with using AOF, so this guide about creating 70LRC suit with use Pedant of Magi (it have rest 30LRC). You need tailor with GM armslore to get better base resists on pre-imbued parts, tailoring talisman is preffered too. Base resists on gargoyle leather suit are 5/6/7/6/6. Cheap imbue uses 90% properties only, so cheap imbued max are 18/19/20/19/19. Since I want to add LRC, I should use 4 imbues for resists and 5th for LRC. So, each armor part should have one resist not imbued. There are numbers: phys 70-3*18=16 fire 70-3*19=13 cold 70-3*20=10 poison 70-3*19=13 energy 70-3*19=13 My goal is to craft armor parts with exc+armslore bonus equal or more than above numbers at least on one resist. There is real example of what I got after 20 tries: chest 8/9/10/13/10 arms 7/10/11/9/13 legs 9/13/10/8/10 kilt 12/6/11/8/13 Next, I imbue each item 4 resists, there are numbers (bold - untouched mods): chest 18/19/20/13/19 arms 16/19/11/19/19 legs 18/13/20/19/19 kilt 18/19/19/19/13 Finally, I imbue 17-18 LRC on parts to get 70LRC total: chest 17 LRC arms 18 LRC legs 17 LRC kilt 18 LRC Total resources used including failures: around 200 leather (recycled unwanted pieces) 87 diamond 24 fire ruby 120 sapphire 56 emerald 88 amethyst 175 amber 267 residue No rare stuff used. you may replace 70 LRC to other wanted properties, one per part. Like 7+7 stam increase and 2+2 stam regen.
