Hi there, I am reworking my sampier suit at the moment and I want to make the suit plate.... am I right in thinking that the base resists for a plate piece are as follows 5,3,2,3,2 then 20 random added for exceptional/armslore bonus. So I am not "wasting" intensity or item weight Should I be looking for pieces where the random distributed resists all stack on 3 of the 5 resist types?? this way when I imbue resists I am no wasting the exceptional / armslore bonus? Also for adding HCI i understand Vic/Slaughter is the option t use, whats the best hammer to use? Finally... I am using mace and shields and also (when i finally get the beggers) Animated leggins of the insane tinker. Will i be best enhancing all with the same type of metal or should I use metal based on the resist shortfall once I have imbue?? I will check as I am going along to make sure I am hitting max resists.... I get the feeling this is going to take some time getting the base pieces but it should work out a hell of a lot cheaper than making a ton of woodland pieces and then hoping for the HCI on them. I guess I just wanted to check my understanding of "good" base pieces. Obviously I will get me a forged tool to enhance once I have got the reforge / imbued pieces right with the correct base/imbued resists.
