[Imbuing] Imbuing armor... VERY confused.

    As the title states, I'm VERY confused on imbuing armor. First, I am NOT SA upgraded so I can not just run to test center to try it out.

    My confusion mainly stems from the resists on armor. Basically, at what point does an armor's resist become a mod?

    Let us use a specific example:
    Lets say I'm starting with GM made leather gloves. This gives a base resist of
    2,4,3,3,3. Let's say I'm GM arms lore. So that throws 5% more in.

    If I adjust any of the resists, does it count as a mod?

    If you imbue a resist higher, that counts as a mod and contributes to the total weight of the item.

    Hmm... makes sense.

    So I guess the related question would be, how much can I bump a single resist?

    Best is to craft a couple pieces where you have the resist you want maxed to be lowest.

    IE: if you want 18 Fire then try to make a piece that starts with 3 or 4 fire and imbue it up. Reason being that the other resist points will have falled on one of the other 4 resist spots and you have maxed out your item.

    If you don't need it to be medable and you really want to max out a item make it from wood and enhance it. I've made some silly items for my sampire:
    Arms HPI 5, SPI 8, MPI8, HPR2 10 23 16 13 11
    Gorget HPI 5, SPI 8, MPI8, HPR2 16 24 5 18 10
    Gloves HPI 5, SPI 8, MPI8, Damage increase 10, 14 13 17 22 7
