    I'm no expert and the math sometimes defeats me, but I just made a suit for one of my chars. Here's how.
    1. I made 5 pieces in barbed leather and one in valorite ( I hate the leather hats)
    2. on 5 pieces I imbued LMC7 MR 2 LRC 17 (in that order) on the 6th piece I imbued LMC 5 MR2 LRC 15
    3. This left 2 imbues per piece to achieve all 70s resists (12 in total). I only used 9, so on the 3 pieces that I had only used one imbue for resists I added MI 7
    4. Jewels. I imbued FC1 FCR3 SDI 12 Int bonus 8
    To finish I re-forged a shield, invigorating of sorcery using a copper hammer. It came up SR 2 MR 4. I imbued SC on that.
    Finally I gave her the minor Tokuno arti, Tome of Enlightenment:Int bonus 5 SDI 10 FC1 (which balances up the -1 I added to the shield by giving it spell channeling) and a cloak of power.
    Totals: resists 70s SR 2 MR 16 LRC 100 SDI 34, 6/2 casting, 40 LMC 21 MI 23 Int
    I don't know whether it's a good suit or not, but I like it.

    I just made my pvp mage a suit 2 weeks ago using only Imbued leather armor+Pendant of Magi. I'm still new to Imbuing too since I've only been back playing for about 4 months now. So if I can manage this I'm sure someone else can do even better.

    Stats:
    All 70 - 75 Energy (Elf)
    101% LRC
    2/6 Casting
    40% LMC
    13 MR
    45% HCI
    45% DCI
    15% DI
    15% SDI (Cap in PvP)
    +4 Int
    +15 Mana Increase
    +6 Stamina Increase

    Well I can tell you what I do.

    I craft a bunch of pieces out of barbed leather (non-runic). Then I mix and match until I can get at least 2 of the 5 resists to 70. Then I PoF and Imbue resists, mods, etc.

    I'm just starting to figure out Reforging, so I can't comment on that.

    It depends on how much gold are you going to spend.
    mana orb + garb + tangle + renjuv cloak + lt sash = 8 MR + 15 DCI
    you can craft a shield with SC (no penalty) + 2 MR + 15 DCI

    There are very good and very cheap artifacts that I use in any mage suit:
    Enchanted Kelp Woven Leggings: MR 2, SDI 8, CF 4
    Crown of Arcane Temperament: MR 3, SDI 8, CF 2

    You can use as well:
    Protector of the Battle Mage: MR 2, SDI 5, CF 3
    Pendant of the Magi: MR 3, SDI 5
    But I myself don't use them because they have low intensity and it is difficult to maximize resists with just 2-3 crafted leather items.

    So usually I use the crown + the leggings + 4 crafted/imbued items.
    I imbue resists, lmc, lrc, mi, hpi on this items. As a result I get all those stats (including 25 hpi) maxed without jewels.
    Jewels depends on "misc slot" artifacts and on book. Usually 2/6, 15 DCI + what you need (EP if you want).

    The total stats are:
    2/6, 50 SDI (75 with a scrapper), 45 DCI, max resists, 150 int, ~200 mana, ~140 HP

    Re-forge 2 MR using shadow runic, then enchant with valorite to get 14 res total, then imbue the rest mods.

    So when I'm doing this, do I just not choose any of the options in the Reforge menu?

    There is an option that gives you regens. In a few attempts you get 2 MR.
