    Hi I made my woodland armour when imbuing first came out and was able to make some nice combo's of HCI and DI on my armour pieces. This was before the forged tool was around, broke alot of armour in the process, but I like challenges. Anyway I have not really kept up with the new advantages of like plate, studded leather etc, so have some of you changed from woodland armour to something else? Also even if you never used woodland armour what are you currently using and what are there advantages. This would be only for warrior type players which could include chivarly, necro, bushido, and your using a weapon and tanking the captains.

    I use studded for the LMC bonus on my warrior template. I usually reforge either 5 DCI or 5 HCI onto some of the parts then imbue things like HPI, SI or MI.

    The good thing with woodland is you could reforge on 5 HCI. Imbue your other mods, then enhance with heartwood and hope for the 5 HCI. This would then stack with your reforged 5 HCI and give you 10 HCI on one part.

    One character has full plate, incorporating the artifacts Helm of Vengeance and Heart of the Lion.

    One character is Fey Leggings (with meddability removed), Gypsy Headdress, other pieces Studded.

    My main character, who's basically retired, is still a Med-Warrior, with Fey Leggings (meddable), Rune Beetle Carapace, Mace/Shield Glasses, other pieces leather.
