I wish I could claim that I am new or returning, but neither of those is particularly true. My question is regarding armor types and their specific affect on mana regeneration. My question comes in multiple parts, while making an assumption that non-medable armor, at a minimum, means both passive and active meditation us blocked: Does non-medable armor block the focus skill from regenerating mana? Does non-medable armor block Mana Regeneration (MR) item bonuses (i.e. Kelp Woven Leggings)? I have historically built leather-only armor sets for all my characters, but I am beginning to wonder if that is required for ones that don't have any meditation. For instance, I have an elf ABC archer w/o meditation. I wonder if he truly needs medable-only armor. Or if my human sampire is only hurt by a non-medable suit in that his JoaT 20 in meditation is blocked.
