Topic Leatherworking items and enchantments
Edited by Paracélsus on 11/05/12 17:05 (BST)
I earned illustrious leatherworking a month ago or so, but only now took time to investigate it a little further. The questions are rather detailed. But on the other hand, each question should be possible to answer with a yes or no? There are so many experienced and knowledgeable players out there, can someone help me?
(1) The item enhancement "heavy savage armor kit" will ”permanently increase the stamina of an item worn on the head, chest, shoulders, hands, or feet by 45”. Does that mean that I can add such a kit to each type of item listed or only to one of them?
(2) Can I add both an item enhancement (like ”scorched leg armor) and an embossment (like ”dragonbone leg reinforcements”) to one and the same leg armor
(3) Can I add both an enchantment (like "Greater critical strike") and a leatherworking embossment (like "draconic embossment agility") to one and the same bracer
(4) Can I combine (a) a leatherworking item enhancement (like "Heavy savage armor kit") and the ”arcanum of vicious agility” sold by vendors to one and the same head item, and (b) a heavy savage armor kit and ”greater inscription of vicious agility”, also sold by vendors, to my shoulder item.

How can you max out a skill without knowing that you can only have one of any 'enhancemant' in a slot?
so 1/ one armour kit can be attached to one slot, from anything on the list, just like it says in the tooltip.
4/dont think so, but ive not tried to be honest. If you try it it will either work, or you will get a checkbox saying "[enhancment-A] will replace [enhancement-B], do you wish to continue?", and at that point whatever you do is up to you.
Let us know how you get on.
You know, what strikes me about your answeer is the tone of weariness, or even depression, that come with your words: not about a dystopia, it’s dysnomia. I wonder if this is so, because you are weary about the short cuts that this forum offers, thinking of all the hours you have put in.
I find it upliftning, though, how many genuinly helpful people that are out there. Of course, many people also want to show off, to be best in class, but that’s ok too. I don’t mind feeding egos with questions. It not a big deal. But your particular posture seems instead to be this: it would be better if this forum did not exist. It is nor fair with these short cuts, but now when we have it, I will make sure to that I also get some cred for what I learned by myself. But your wearniess cannot help but ooz forth. Cheer up mate, things are not so bad.
However, perhaps you are trying to get a little bit too much cred for your input, because the only answer that would really be worth something is the last one (1000 and 2000 honor points respectively), the former only cost a few leathers or blackened dragonscale. But I understand, you want a better balance.
But do your words really refer to experience? Nothing in your post says so. Instead, you refer to the toool tip as unambiguos, which is exactly not the case. Maybe you are a man of misnomers, or maybe you lucked out. I have no idea, but I take your answer to be right, because I think someone would have corrected you by now.
Have fun! Enjoy the feeling of sharing!

I liked the play with words there.
And thanks for the honour points, you can have some too for the nice wordplay, and free psycho-analysis of the answers. Admittedly most of which were no, but thats just because its the right answer, and as you say -
*Edit - I never really found the tooltip 'ambiguous' but I leveled leatherworking on the hunter, so actually used it from day one.
They're all enchantments, just like the enchanting ones, and you can have only one enchantment per item. So the answer to questions 2, 3, and 4 is no.
You can add one armor kit to every item listed (but then you cannot enchant them) depending on your class and spec, either the lw or the enchanting enchants will be better.
The wrist enchant will always be better than anything you can get through enchanting.
Lw is the only prof that can make leg enchants for melee classes, the embossments are incredibly cheap, while the BoE version is rather expensive.
