    Ok, by all intents and purposes the natural cap of LRC is 100%.

    Right now, I have a character who currently sports 170% and still has room left for better numbers.

    Current values:

    Head: 20
    Neck: 25
    Arms: 0
    Ring: 25
    Leggings: 25
    Tunic: 25
    Bracelet: 25
    Gloves: 25

    Total: 170

    Current goal is to hit 200%... why? Because it can be done (probably can go further, but I have not yet researched LRC artifacts).

    Could you post some pics of those armor pcs with 25%?

    A four pc LRC suit sounds sweet.

    Here are a few of the pieces. Most found will have the various "curses" as well on them, but the Tunic was clean:

    i got several of the 25%'ers also, including jewelry, interesting, if you Only want 100%, 4 pcs and your done, most are brittle i think, but they wouldn't be for combat anyways

    So that puts it at 235% max if I'm calculating it right and not missing anything.

    If you have over 100% Does it drop reagents in your backpack when you cast spells?

    I thought that the LRC CAP on items was 20% but clearly, I was wrong......

    Out of curiosity, has it always been 25% or was it 20% and raised at some point to 25% ?

    Pinco,...I have to tell you again, on an unrelated note about LRC...

    I love your User interface. I just updated mine and some of the functionalities you put in there are simply amazing.

    You and Dermott and the rest of the Skins Gang deserve really big Kudos for all that you do to make this game more fun to play!!

    Thank You All!!!

    Along the same lines I made a mr51 suit. It is 40lmc, over 100lrc and has around +50 mana increase. I figure to use it for a training suit or for my inscription char.

    Hang on. I know I’m late into this one… but are you complaining about having really sweet low-regs items? hehe

    When I have prime pieces, I get just at 100% or just a touch over… leaving slots open for other bonuses and extras. For me, with my tamer… it's a switch between discord bonuses or extra taming. She even carries the extra set just in case we are met with an unexpected challenge along the road of adventure.

    Then you look at that special mage suit from the clean up. It's actually far lacking to my other mage suits. Slower cast recovery… slow meditation business. Foo. Add the jewelry set, it doesn’t seam to be any better.

    It's not like I’m an expert with building suits. I’m the farthest from it! Building basic mage suits, yeah… no problem. Even the worst 100% regs free suit sure beats the heck out of the olden days!!!

    Back in the olden days… I would hunt savages at the old fort in T2A at least 3 to 5 times a week. I would set up regs bags with what I used most, PACKED, as heavy as I could carry while collecting berries. As the regs got used up… the berries got placed in another bag. They didn’t even stack then! When the regs were used up, my berry bag was full… I would quickly pop back home, lock the berry bag down, grab the next pre-prepared regs bag and go on my way. Rinse, repeat. ;) Savage berries paid for the newer mall building 100%, not to mention extras. Happy days. I dread to think how much more damage I could have done with today’s rules. A no-regs suit, stackable berries, and a fully charged bag of sending! hehe Collect 100x 30 in a day’s hunt. 3000 berries would have translated to 15 million gold and sold in a week’s time! Now, it would be more money per unit… but it would come far slower. That would be a year supply and they cut the spawn since. I don’t think I could sit that long anymore. Even collecting 100 berries today seems to take 5x longer then it did back then. Still, no matter what kind of character or job they have, I love my no-regs suits. :)

    Not complaining, just seeing how crazy of a number that can be reached.

    Wasn't there talk at one point, that didn't go anywhere, back in the era of either Mr. Tact, Sunsword or Draconi, to have LRC apply to Inscription and/or Alchemy at a value of (actual-100%)?
