    So, a new guy in the guild wanted to make a sampire and wanted armor- of course everyone wants the 'best' until you start talking about prices. He mentioned that he had a slither and that he could sell that to afford to make the armor... and that got me thinking... he also had a gladiator's collar..... So... I tossed this together....

    Resist 70/104/70/72/70

    I spent about 3 hours making leather pieces for the armor. I added it up and figured out that I could actually hit all 70's and 95 fire with just 3 imbues of fire. So, I worked toward that end. The resist you see above are with 4 fire imbues. Here are the individual pieces:
    Chest 7/x/10/10/13
    Arms 5/x/12/11/12
    Hands 9/x/11/12/10
    Legs 6/x/11/11/9

    EDIT: Yes, I know I could get better results, used less resist imbues had I enhanced it after imbuing, especially considering that this was made from leather. But he was reluctant to buy a Forged Metal and I wasn't going to push it, since I could hit the resist and the suit would be good without it.

    He had jewelry he wanted to use (Ring 15 hci, 15 dci, 22 di, 8 str Wrist 15 hci, 15 dci, 22, di, 4 str, 8 dex)- toss in the stats from the slither, crimson, mace and shields, gladiator's and....

    40 HCI / 45 DCI / 44 DI / 30 HPI / 4 HPR

    So, with no imbues needed on the armor for HPI, imbuing it was pretty straight forward. 8 LMC, 8 Stam Inc, 8 MI and 15 fire. Granted, at first there only needed to be 3 fire imbues, but he told me to make it like I would for myself, so I tossed in a extra fire imbue for the random corpse skin. That left one imbue slot left. I think MR on a sampire is about useless. Reflect physical? yeah, could have gone there with the 70 weight left over on the 4 pieces. I ended up putting on 2 SR, which put the weight at like 496 or 498.

    Anyway, the rest of the stats are:
    33 LMC / 32 Stamina Increase / 22 Strength / 18 Dex / 30 HLD / 2 MR / 5 SSI / 32 MI / 6 Stamina Regeneration

    Could redo one of his rings to add the 7 LMC needed to hit 40... leaving that up to him if he feels he needs it. It also got me thinking about using a similar set up for woodland armor.

    Guess it's time to try for my own Slither....

    Thoughts/comments?

    Thank you for your input. I have been trying to assemble an armor suit for my sampire for months and I even went hunting for the insane tinker leggings (and got them). But I can't make myself do it, with all the numbers you need to factor in... My mind always starts swirling and I easily find things more fun to do. I wish you were in my guild so you could craft my sampire's armor for me! :beer:

    But if I ever manage to do it, your input will be most valueable. I gave links to your posts to other players very often.

    Wow, nice stats on the suit. I think you did a great job incorporating what the guy had on hand. (If only I should be so lucky to have a slither and gladiator's collar on hand.) Fitting in 45 dci can be tricky unless using the fey leggings and I'm not crazy about the resists on those. I do have a question though. Is 100% damage increase no longer needed on sampire suits? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks!

    It is, but he's getting the rest of the DI from his weapons (to 94%).

    That is why I am going to look at the numbers of making it woodland, because you can get 4 DI (10%) pieces, taking the jewelry to 25% each, so, it would be 90% from the suit.

    That's a good idea. If you do this suit, please post a picture. I love looking at suits. :)
