    I was contacted at the end of September by someone from here that had read my Sampire in Plate thread and wanted to know if I would help them with a suit. I was quite honored that someone would, first of all, like it and secondly, want me to make one for them....so, a couple of weeks later I got started.

    From my first try, I knew something things before starting. I would be imbuing with Verite, he opted to use a Gladiator's Collar, and that if I went for the (near) perfect pieces, that I could save imbue slots. A perfect piece IMO is 5/3/x/x/x in general. Then as the resist get spread out over cold, poison, and energy- you get a more narrow target area.

    Here are the pieces I ended up with (I made a total of around 4200 pieces)
    Chest: 6/4/4/11/10
    Arms: 7/4/4/11/9
    Hands: 7/6/9/3/10
    Legs: 6/4/7/8/10

    Got to the hands and needed x/x/9/x/12 for the 'perfect' fit... but ended up going with the +2 Energy boots to arrive at:
    Combined with Verite, Gladiator's Collar and Mace & Shield Glasses-70/109/70/85/70

    Now, if you look at the pieces and figure out the imbues, you'll notice that in theory that it is possible to do it with 5 imbues, but that is with each piece being 5/3/x/x/x. And whatever piece gets the poison imbue being 5/3/x/3/x.

    So- an essentially completely corpse proof suit for plate with 6 imbues (4 fire, 1 cold, 1 poison).

    Will update the post once I finalize the artifacts and imbues.

    Oh no and you crafted 4200 pieces to get the perfect one? I sure am sorry to hear that. I wish I could help. :(

    It was about 4200 pieces to get the perfect 4.

    Ok, so after some more beating of the iron ingots and my keyboard... I am ready to start again...

    Here are the base pieces:

    Arms 7/5/12/3/8
    Hands 6/5/3/8/13
    Chest 7/4/4/10/10
    Legs 6/5/4/10/10


    Going with verite, which I have decided is by far the best material to use for this- if you are going for corpse proof sampire plate armor (maybe I should trademark that). The resist come out to:
    70/109/70/83/70

    It is, in theory, to get better, but in the thousands of pieces of pieces I made, I got NO pieces that were 5/3/x/x/x.

    The rest of the suit is:
    Mace and Shield Glasses
    Gladiator's Collar
    Corgul's Sash
    Conjurer's Talisman
    Crimson Cincture
    Ranger's Cloak of Augmentation
    Conjurer's Garb

    I haven't made the jewelry yet, waiting to see if he needs skills or what not, but the character is human, so he wanted nightsight on armor for the earring slot free for the earring of protection to take poison to 85.

    Here are the current stats:
    11 STR
    10 DEX
    20 Mana Increase
    2 MR
    40 LMC
    25 HPI
    2 HPR
    45 HCI (assuming imbuing 25 HCI on jewelry)
    40 DCI (assuming imbuing 30 DCI on jewelry)
    33 Stamina Increase
    20 Damage Increase
    30 HLD
    5 SSI

    If you aren't worried about being corpse proof (or not against poison) that would save you at least 1 imbue... but what else would you imbue... Stamina Regen? In the following post will be screen shots of the armor.

    That is how my made my wife's suit. You might not be able to use the Gladiator's Collar because you won't have enough stamina increase, depending on SSI and other stuff.
     
  9. NuSair, if I understand correctly, you made base pieces first with iron ingots, added POF, imbued and then enhanced with Valorite? I assume you used the Forged Metal Tool for enhancing?

    I rarely enhance with Valorite.

    But in general yes. With shadow and Valorite, you can pof upto like 178'ish and the enhance will take it to 255.

    And sometimes, it depends on what I imbued, if I use the forged metal or not.

    im thinking about making my suit with valorite..

    because it gives you a bigger bonus in the long run.

    since im already imbuing fire on each piece and valorite doesnt add to fire i can spread out the other 3 resists easier (since i will be way over on phy anyway)

    the suit im looking at just needs pices with
    10 cold and 8 poison.. then imbue 17/18 fire and 12/13 energy (i might not even have to imbue one piece) and enhance.

    head 25/10/10/10/10 (mace and shield or folded steel)
    gorget x/18/10/8/12
    chest x/18/10/8/12
    legs 17/15/7/15/2 (insane tinker legs)
    sleeves x/17/10/8/12
    gloves x/17/10/9/13

    80+/70/69/69/70

    and it should be easy enough that i dont have to make 1000s of pieces to get the right ones..

    I think it would come down to how the resist fall, but unless you just want the suit to all say Valorite, I would keep an open mind and look at Bronze, Copper and Shadow.

    And I am guessing this isn't for a sampire type character?

    Sorry- I just realized I completely miss read your question originally.

    That is correct, except that I imbued with Verite. The Forged Metal Tool was provided by the person I was making the suit for.

    When making a suit for a sampire you need to get fire really high and while the Mace and Shield is great, only being 10 resist in Fire kind of puts you behind. You need a minimum 95 fire resist (since vampiric embrace is -25). I like to go to 110 so that it is corpse skin proof as well.

    Since Valorite has no fire resist (4/0/3/3/3), it's not really helpful in that aspect. Now, if you are making the suit and it's not for a sampire, then Valorite is probably your best bet. Depending on how the bonuses from exceptional/arms lore fall out.

    Just as a side note- with Valorite, you only need to pof to like 178 and when you enhance it, it will go to 255 durability.

    Damn, I am feeling talkative today....

    The reason I made so many pieces is because the closer you get to perfect pieces, it saves you an imbue or 2 (or even 3), that you can use on other things.

    yeah i made the suit with the tinker legs and without the collar with valorite for my sampire..

    it ended up 70/95/69/69/68

    but the more i look at things the more i like the collar..
    so im making a suit right now out or verite with both the legs and the collar.
    the ssi on the legs will offset the need to get to 180 stam.

    the main reason i went with valorite on my other suit was because the legs have such low energy i was low on energy. verite only gives 1 but val gives 3.

    so imbuing with val i got an extra 12 energy.

    the only thing i didnt like is i only have 49 mana with this suit.

    140hp
    49 mana
    182 stam

    the suit stats are

    14 mana
    32 stam
    25 hpi
    25 dex inc
    16 str inc
    40 lmc
    43 hci / 33 hci without trinket.
    38 dci
    70 di w/ conj trinket
    20 ssi

    85
    70
    69
    69
    68

    the energy boots would help get to 70 energy..


    now the stats for the new suit with the collar and the legs.

    140 hp
    60 mana
    174 stam

    25 mana inc
    24 stam inc
    25 hp inc
    25 dex inc
    16 str inc
    32 lmc
    43 hci dont have to use the trinket anymore..
    38 dci
    72 di w/ reg primer tali.. might try to find an orb with di and dci.
    20 ssi

    91
    70
    70
    70
    70

    i dont know how i can make this suit better.. maybe ill try to make a wood suit next with 10 di on each piece so i dont need any on the weapon at all.

    5 hci

    50 di save you 100 intensity on your weapon while 25 hci save 200+

    i have made both suits..
    to be honest i use the first suit more.. not cause of the more stam, but because the glad collar only has 150 durability :(
    the low durability is very bad on a sampire build for such an expensive piece.
    i can repair this thing about 3 times a day if i used it all the time..

    Nah, it's not that bad....

    But that is why I also run 120 parry and 45 DCI.

    LOL... I just might have to do that. :)

    Here's a hint though-
    Spined Leather 5/0/0/0/0 +40 Luck
    Gold 1/1/2/0/2 +40 Luck Lower Requirements 50%

    And I did just pick up another Forged Metal for 13mil.

    Nah, I am not 'locked' into metal. My sampire's suit is made out of wood. I need to get around to post it. Eventually.... lol.

    Yeah, I didn't realize that Oak added that much- almost twice that of the other luck materials.

    Conceptually, is it really worth it to have 140 luck on your wooden armor pieces rather than just 100? You're gaining 40 luck per piece but losing either 10 DI or 5 HCI when going for a wooden suit. If we're talking leather or metal you are just losing max material resists.
