Hi, I've managed to acquire a barbed runic kit and I was wondering what is the optimum 'state' to get my character in before I attempt to use it? I'm guessing 120 tailoring is almost a given, but what is a realistic talisman goal to shoot for? What is the bare minimum in terms of exceptional increase you would take before burning a runic kit? Also, I know a few holes in my suit I want to plug, but *generally* speaking, what are the best leather items to make for a mage PVP suit if you consider the most popular artifacts? Apologies if these questions are a bit simple, I've just returned after a long break.
