    I spent last night trying to work up a suit using Excel for a future gargoyle sampire character. I scoured the list of SA arties and came to a realization; there are no Gargoyle Armor pieces with DCI. This creates a problem trying to max DCI at 45. There are only two setups I could devise:

    - Ring (imbued): 15 DCI
    - Bracelet (imbued): 15 DCI
    - Converted Quiver of Infinity: 5 DCI
    - Conjurer's Garb: 5 DCI
    - Tangle: 5 DCI

    or

    - Ring (imbued): 15 DCI
    - Bracelet (imbued): 15 DCI
    - Converted Quiver of Infinity: 5 DCI
    - Slither: 10 DCI
    NOTE: This setup will not let you use a Primer on Arms or Conjurer's Trinket

    There are lots of shields and wepons with DCI, but a character with bushido cannot use a shield and none of the weapons have SSI, HML, and HSL (which I consider requirements for this sort of character). With both of the above mentioned DCI setups it is going to take some time to obtain those pieces at the current drop rate. What is missing in the artie lineup (which has some awesome pieces) is some armor for gargoyles with DCI on it. It would be nice if we could have a Fey Leggings equivalent (or be able to modify fey leggings). That was a UOML Minor Artificat and would be a welcome addition to the current SA arties set. Anyways, that is my feedback to the developers... please give a us a future garg armor piece with DCI.

    P.S. If anyone has found a better way to max garg DCI at 45 I'd appreciate hearing what items you are using. Thanks!

    ... Folded Steel Glasses.
    Faction folded steel for an obscene amount of DCI.

    Plenty of DCI if you use a shield. Being a bushido practitioner doesn't render one incapable of using a shield... merely parrying with one, which is inessential anyway, apparently.

    Ah, thank you, Miner. I had forgotten about those glasses. Let me see if I can work that into the plan. That solves the night sight issue too.

    I can't even wear converted folded steel glasses, or a converted ranger's cloak. I crash every time I log on with those items.
