Question / Idea about Base Leather Pieces..

    So...I have been trying to craft a set of Exeptional Leather Sleeves on ATL.
    I need them to have 9/13/X/x/X for resists. I am creating a 100 LRC/1930 Luck 85/70/70/70/70 siot for my tamer (85 so still @ 70 with Prot on).

    I have every piece done, and I just need to craft this one peice, then imbue the Pois, Ene, & Cold to 13-16, (after Inbuing LRC and Luck)....

    Seems Simple Right? I have a pair of sleeves now that are 9/13/16/16/16, but I need, 9/13/18/16/18...*sigh*

    I have spent 2 days (granted only like 6 hours) crafting sleeves and have not got a single pair if 9/13/X/X/X sleeves. I did Craft a pair of X/X/X/10/13, but I don't need those ATM.

    This leads to my question(s).

    #1) What is the BEST pair of Normal Exept Leather you have crafted? Has anyone ever pulled off a 14/13? THe best I have done in about 5,000 leather (recycling every peice) has been the 13/10. Is there a Max to the 2 you can have (obviously 35 total). It seems as though 2 in the lowest, so could you conceivably make a 14/14/2/2/3??? Imagine what you could imbue/enhace that piece to????

    #2) Has anyone ever considered setting up a vendor to JUST sell leather pieces that were made, non-imbued, non-enhanced that have a solid 2 resists base? I would have gladly paid for the 9/13/X/X/X piece as opposed to trying to make one..(still trying BTW)...

    Any thoughts out there?

    That's opposite of my approach i try to get Phy and Fire as low as possible so as to get the other 3 resists to 70 before imbuing.

    Interesting...I may look at that..my issue is that for my armor to stay MAX Luck, I am stuck dealing with the following pieces no matter what:

    Hat of Chuckles (could use Martime glasses, but they are even worse)
    Mempo from Leu.
    Survival Knife
    Vesper Shield (+1 Phy Resist :)
    Armor of Fortune
    Ecru Bleu Set

    That only leaves me Legs/Arms/Gloves to make up 60 LRC and LOTS of resists...PLUS I have to make, imbue, then enhance with Sprined to get luck to 140, so I only get +5 phy resists when I enhance...

    You could always make a 140 luckblade and then imbue resist onto that.

    I realize that it isn't max luck.. But I personally junked the jester hat.

    Made a 140 luck piece instead with other mods, which made the piece much nicer than the hat.

    No, I don't have 1910 luck now.. But I think 1900 is pretty okay. :D
