    It's either going to be for a Sampire or Archer.

    Wow... just now noticed the last piece wasn't exceptional. Joy.

    Those sleeves might not cut it either.
    The lack of stam inc on them kinda hurts.

    Dex bonus on the armor isn't really needed, as you can get to 150 pretty easily with potions, even assume you get clumsy cast on you. I agree that you'd be better off with 10 Stam pieces.

    If you put those items on a warrior - where do your HP come from?

    Looks like you'd end up with a character with only 170 stamina, 13x hp ... but 100 something mana. Certainly sub-optimal for a sampire - perhaps workable for an archer.

    In general, warriors need properties from 3 groups, so reforging with a "big" runic with 2 titles is not going to give you the best mix of properties, IMO. If I was making a mage suit - I'd probably use barbed kits. When I've made my warrior suits, I use spined, and optimize just the 1 property, then imbue the rest on.

    You need horned (leaves room to imbue) or full 6 charges on a barb kit.

    I haven't tried recently. I have tried in the last weeks to make a new 100 HML broadsword with copper hammer. I've gone 0 for my last 36 or something attempts, which is much more than it usually takes. It should not be possible with spined unless you want to go brittle.

    NuSair I'd buy that first one if you want to sell it. The gorget.

    Slither (10) + Crimson (10) + who knows

    Why only 130 HP?

    I just wish I remember how I made these pieces, lol. I made them a few months ago.

    I'll think about it, trying to get my head back into armor making. What would you pay?

    I guess I'm not willing to assume that everyone's got a full set of arties laying around. With those, then 145 is no problem.

    Oh, they aren't laying around, but I have the gold and/or time to try and get a drop.

    Whatever it takes to make the suit.
