    OK... so you craft an Exceptional Regular Leather Gorget with a character that has 100 Arms lore. The Base resists of a leather Gorget are

    2 / 4 / 3 / 3 / 3

    Because the item is Exceptional & you have 100 Armslore you get another 20 points randomly distributed... My Question is if you can get ALL 20 of those points added to one resist? I've personally seen 11 / 20 points added to one resist so far but what's the Max?

    Assuming there is no limit, i figure the odds of getting +20 to one resist are 1 in 19,073,486,328,125 ... which gives a new meaning to "rare" :)

    Well.. it all depends on how it applies the bonus resists... if it's 1 point at a time then yeah all 20 in 1 will be tough... I just toughed about another 500 attempts and dind't get any higher than +11 in one resist, but I'd like to know for sure... Anyone else ? Being that Imbuing currently Doesn't include the Exceptional / Lore bonus on the resist you Imbue too... I find it quite important to understand exactly how this all works... I don't mind cranking out tons of pieces to get the right one to imbue but I like to know it's possible B4 I start lol.

    in my attempts, it appears 12 is the cutoff.. anything above 12 needs to be made with runic.. thus using 1 of your 5 extra mods..

    I suspect the actual amount added has got to do with percentages based off each of the base resists. Either that or it is weighted.

    The resists with the highest values seem to get the most bonus in general.

    I still make gm armour and build suits that minimizes 1 or 2 resists. (instead of maximizing a particular one). It is damn hard to get 0 bonus to a resist that starts out high.

    Yeah... that 15 fire is 4 base from the item & 11 Added from the 20 Random points.. so it appears that so far 12 is the most.
