    Hi everyone. I'm not an elite suitmaker by any means, but rather a novice who has only recently begun to attempt higher-end crafting. While looking for information and resources, I found it very confusing trying to figure out where to start and what the proper order of operations should be (and why).

    As I learned I started to write my own "guide", compiling links and sources into a single document. This is the most distilled version of that. I hesitated to post it because, as I said, I'm still learning myself, but hopefully someone will find it useful. Any errors are my own and I'll be happy to edit if they are pointed out to me.

    This flowchart assumes that the crafter will be using imbuing (as opposed to burning through high end runics).

    Thx for sharing this flowchart :) But i would like to point out the following:

    You could also do step 9 "enhancing" right after step 5 "reforging" and before POF & Imbuing

    -> Let's say you want a woodland armor piece with 10 HCI or one with 5 HCI, 10 DI.
    - You can craft regular armor pieces untill you get the base resists you are looking for, reforge it with 5 HCI, enhance it with heartwood armor and hope that the random enhanced property is either + 5HCI or +10 DI. If it's not, repeat the above. If you got lucky, POF your item & imbue it.
    - Note that with this method you lost any potential post-imbue enhanced resists. Suppose you originally crafted the item with 3 fire resist. You then successfully enhanced the armor piece and because of this you have gained +3 fire resistance from enhancing with heartwood. Now your piece has 6 fire resist. Imbuing allows us to imbue a maximum of 18 fire resist onto woodland armor. So you can imbue fire resist to 18. Now if you had done enhancing after imbuing, then you would have imbued 18 fire resist first and then enhanced it with 3 fire making an armor piece of 21 fire resist.
    - Note that enhancing pre-imbue will take up imbuing intensity & the 10 di in the above example would count as one of your maximum 5 mods. Enhancing post-imbue would allow for a maximum of 6 mods!

    Basically enhancing before imbuing is safer but the result is not as good. You imbue the item after you are sure you didn't break it.

    I know i'm not a good writer :)

    Ooh, I didn't know that! I'll try to update the chart in the next day or so. Thanks!
