[Blacksmithing] Very bad RNG or very bad algorithm?

    I spent the best part of the last hour crafting platemail do to imbue, looking for either very high bonuses to fire and poison, or no bonus at all. I used up around 2000 ingots, which means I must have creafted and smelted around 300 dos (recycling included), and observed quite a few pieces where at least one of the elementals resistances had no bonus at all - except physical. ONE piece out of 250 had no bonus to physical (that I really don't need).
    My question is: was I extremely, horribly unlucky, or is the algorithm to give the exceptional + arms lore resistance bonus broken, as in "roll for every resistance in order and so always start with phys"?
