    I just recently came back to the game. I've been building a thrower. I've about got his skills where I want them. I'm looking to buy or have someone build a suit for me.

    I have the mace and shield glasses and a veil. I've been farming for the Breastplate of the Berserker on my mystic.

    How much would a piece of armor with 8mi, 8si, 8lmc,5hpi,5hci/DCI cost?
    (I took these stats from Corwins guide on the warrior forum) I don't know how hard these stats are to obtain.

    If I obtain the breastplate I'm assuming I need 3-4 of these. This would be on Atlantic. My goal is to be able to solo some champ spawns on him.

    180 stam you need 45ssi
    150 stam you need 60ssi
    then a stam buffer for when you get hit. i like 20 to 30 stam buffer.

    for those parts the most expensive part would be the time the crafter it takes a crafter to get the base pieces with 5hci to get the resists right, then hope he has granite to enhance (granite can be hard to come by) then about 4mil per reforged tool enhance.
    so if he does it for free, 4 or 5 mil per piece is cost of materials. for time, you could be spending maybe 50milish to get resists to line up right.

    Personally, i think throwers really need mana regen. theres not enough leech on ranged weapons even with wraith form.
    I think your better off going with hci on jewels.

    Smoot thanks for the input. So instead of HCI on the pieces change that to MR?

    Still looking :)

    it depends on your jewels, if your trying to do some wierd template, or use specific jewels that have no room for hci then hci on armor is an option. personally i would recomend mana regen on armor, hci on jewels as the easiest setup.

    also, it will be cheaper / easier to make, as you can craft the pieces from special material like valorite or agapite and then imbue, rather than craft from normal, reforge for hci, then imbue, then enhance.

    p.s. start looking for granite, it is often hard to come by.

    Okay I'll look for granite. I'm assuming that is for stone armor?

    yes, was assuming you wanted stone. you wont have max lmc with mace and shields but the extra boost is still nice. another option is plate, this could be good if your going to be solo playing and taking lots of damage. really helps negate stamina loss.

    That's interesting Smoot. I'll have to find the benefits of stone vs plate
