    Alrighty. So.. I'm currently making my way back onto ATL. The only characters I have are a Sampire and my pvper. I have no access to a crafter and I'm currently in the market for one of those nice heartwood sampire suits. The ones with the HCI on each piece as depicted in Thunderz pics. They look nice and I want one.

    I currently have Mace and shield glasses (non faction) and the tinker leggings. So I'm going to need the leggings, arms, chest and gorget made. Preferably with 5hci on each piece. WIth the normal mods to maximize stam/mana/hit point increase.

    If anyone can help me with this that would be great! I've got the gold, just no crafter.

    Woah there little doggy, Just buy a forged arty tool and see if Kage or Sakey will do the crafting bit, its much more inexpensive honestly.

    You may end up buying several of them though. Remember you're not guaranteed the property you want when enhancing with heartwood.

    Do you just want the regular suit? (make with heartwood and then imbue) Or an imbued then enhanced one? From my experience (i would not again try for the imbue / enhance method again with normal enhancing now that the forging tool is for sale) It might take at least 20 or 30 charges, plus crafting all the base pieces for optimal resists, which means a very long time crafting.

    I would be willing to put the work in, just have to be more specific in what you are looking for.

    When I make my suits, I am looking for pieces of Plain wood I craft with super low resist in one section, and moderate to high is the others.

    For example, if you are going to imbue fire, craft pieces till you get Fire 3 or 4. Then imbue and then enhance.

    With heartwood, it is VERY hard to get the sampire resists with only imbueing one resist.

    I have found I almost need to imbue two resists on one piece just to get close to good resists.

    Honestly, I prefer my bloodwood suit over my HCI suit, but that is just me.

    It is much easier to get the resists with bloodwood than it is with heartwood, at least that is what I find.

    Also, keep in mind, enhancing with heartwood does not gaurantee you HCI as a mod. I have about 200 pieces that are not HCI, and about 10-15 that are HCI.

    They are VERY hard to get the right mix.

    Ya, I add two resists to one piece. You can probably juuuust get all 70's without doing it, but I like to end up with 75 energy for elf and at least partial corpse skin proofing.

    FWIW, I used 11 charges of a forged metal artifact tool to get 5 pieces with either HCI or DI. I didn't think that was too bad.
