[Imbuing] Suit help

Discussion in 'UO Craftsman' started by Dannyboy, Jul 16, 2012.

    I've returned to UO recently, and would like to get a suit for my abc archer as the current one I have really isn't optimal. I have a 120 imbuer, and gm (and climbing) blacksmith. However I pretty much just leveled him without exploring imbuing much, let alone reforging and enhancing.

    Anyway I currently have these items I plan to build a suit around.
    Mace and shield glasses.
    Rangers cloak of augmentation
    I also have the crimson cincture just for the dex bonus.

    That leaves 5 pieces of Armour to get resists
    45 Physical
    And 60 for all the others

    And I need to get 45 DCI
    45 hci

    I sit at 120 dex without any dex boosting items, am I going to need dex?
    I got told I will need 8SI on 3 pieces?

    What about lmc and MI? And ssi?

    Is it even possible without reforging. And I'm going to have to enhance right to get those resists? Any advice would be appreciated, I feel completely lost and stressed, to where to put the mods, which ones do I put on jewels ect I'n on Europa is any fellow craftsman would like to show me the ropes also so here is my icq 552958952.

    With an archer, have you considered buying a quiver of infinity rather than the cloak?

    SSI, you should be able to get by with on your weapon. Craft one, imbue or reforge, then enhance with ASH (theoretically 40% max from imbue/enhance, 50% from reforge/enhance). 3 8 SIs with a 40% weapon would put you at effective 184 stamina for bow ROF when healthy (or bow firing 4 ticks faster than its stated speed). with a 50% SSI bow, you can make do with 2 +5 Dex items, 2 8 SI items, or an item that gives +10% more SSI, to get to 180+.
    DCI for an archer isn't as important as HCI, and bows can be imbued up to 25% HCI, not sure about via reforging.

    beyond that, you can use trial and error to get. There's more ways to get what you want than there are people to tell you how to get there.

    Anyone else want to pipe in?

    To be honest, 5 SSI beats 5DCI any day on an archer.....

    You will definitely need crimson for dex but the 10 hp increase is pretty big and yes you will need stam increase on your armor and some str\dex increase on ring and bracelet if you want max damage and swing.

    You might need some mana inc as well (depending on your base mana) and I will not run any char without 40 LMC....

    IMO- unless you are using the damage modifier off a quiver or the ammo reduction- you are better off using a cloak and just carrying around the 50% weight reduction quivers in the backpack to carry arrows.

    I agree 100%, this is what I do as well. Wear cloak and carry two quivers in pack.
