    This is my first attempt at building a suit. Yes I know I forgot to powder fort some pieces...But live and learn. A 3/6 Archer....I haven't made the bow. Bow will be comp bow with DI, FC1, HSL, SSI, maybe Hit harm or something like that, maybe even hit life ...

    120 Archery
    120 Tactics
    120 anatomy
    120 bushido (still working)
    120 chiv (still working)
    120 med

    I reforged, powder of fort (well on 2 pieces lol), imbue, and enchanced. Please guys if you have suggestions, I would love to hear.

    By choosing/going for studded armour pieces, you would have been able to reach 15 extra lmc. (3 lmc for each bone/studded part, that adds to the cap of 40. That bonus is capped at 5 pieces)
    I might be wrong, but isnt chiv capped at 4/4. So i guess, your already wasting 0/2.
    If you aim for chaining lightning strikes from bush, you could go for less hci. (LS gives 45 hci, which doesnt exceed the cap of 45.)

    120 focus and reforged/enhanced studded leather armour would have been a much better option.
    55 lmc helps greatly specially since it is difficult to reach the 10 mana cost reduction on special attacks with an ABC archer.
    And since DCI is not something you often see at an archer suit, refining it to all 75s, or at least 75 phys, 75 fire, 75 energy increases your survivability quite a bit.
    120 focus instead of 120 med also add plenty of stam regen, which can come handy at many situations. And the mana regen it provides proves to be enough for your needs.

    When did make lmc max 55? And when did they make the changes to studded? Studded armor use to be non-medable

    Publish 81 states, "Each piece of non medable armor will provide lower mana cost with the exception of woodland armor. Each piece of armor up to five pieces will provide a percentage which is not subject to the lower mana cost cap of 40." So lmc is still capped at 40, but inherent armor bonuses don't count towards the cap.

    It goes on to say, "Studded leather, hide armor, stone armor and bone armor provides 3% of lower mana cost per piece."

    Studded is still non-medable.

    Studded leather isn't medable. In order to make other armor viable all non-medable armor (except woodland) now adds to the LMC cap and reduces the amount of stamina lost when being hit. If I remember right, it's like bone/studded add 3, chain 2 and plate 1.... something to that effect.

    If studded leather isn't medable then I really don't see the point. You are relying completely on mana leech. I had a suit like that on my sampire and hated it.

    With 120 focus and good MR, you don't need 120 med. You will regen mana fast enough for what is needed.
    My archer wears studded leather with 20 mr and 120 focus. I love the 55 lmc and focus helps with the stamina as well, keeping it always high.

    With refinements, you will take less damage.
    Add HML to the bow instead of HSL since with focus you have a good amount of stam regen, and in case of need, you can divine fury for extra stamina.
    That way you will always have enough mana for casting close wounds. :)

    It seems a bit complex from the outside, but the main idea is that with them you can sacrifice DCI cap for extra resists (up to 75 on all resists, 80 on energy on elves and down to 25 DCI cap iirc) or sacrificing resists for DCI (resists down to 65, DCI up to 75, iirc) on non meddable armour.
    Sacrificing resists for DCI is a pretty dumb idea, but sacrificing DCI for resists makes lots of sense for archers. 75 fire resist cap means those firebreaths from greater dragons deal less than 60 HP damage, and that makes a huge difference.
    It also helps you surviving mages, since you will take less damage from spells.

    Keep in mind that your suit needs to accommodate the extra resists. No use to have 75 fire resist cap and only 70 fire resist on your suit.

    55 LMC + 120 Focus is better than 120 Meditation

    If you want to compare, here is mine in progress (the one I have is brave but it dates from a time when imbuing, refinement and forged metal of artifact did not exist)
    Anatomy 120
    Archery 120
    Tactics 120
    Bushido 120
    Chivalry 120
    Healing 100
    Resist 80 (or focus)

    Artifacts :
    Mace and shield reading glasses
    Slither
    Shroud of the Condemned
    Corgul's Enchanted Sash
    Despical quiver physical
    Crimson
    Mythical Detective of the Royal Guard

    Woodland Armor 5 pieces reforged and enhanced with heartwood: Resists 90-75-75-75-75 MI 40 SI 40 LRC 40 DI 10 HCI 25 HPR 3 (and 40 unwanted luck)
    Should be real 75 when I will have the needed refinement components (mibs, mibs,....)

    Jewels with 55 skills, SSI, DCI, DI and intel increase (always hunting at shame for this damn 5-10 SSI brace)

    Composite bows with HML, HSL, SSI, DI, Slayer

    At the end I shoud have with DF:
    Resists 90-75-75-75-75
    40 MI, 40 SI, 23 HPI, 7 HPR
    17 Intel, 15 Dex, 10 Strenght
    40 LMC, 45 HCI, 20 DCI, 100 DI, 60 SSI

    Most (all?) ideas come from Corwin posts on the subject
