[Imbuing] SSI and Hit Leeches

I get that SSI affects how much or little the hit life and mana leeches get. What I’m wondering is this, say I imbue max SSI to a weapon, along with max hit life and mana leeches then down the road I find (say a ring) with SSI and mods that helps me. If I go and lower the SSI on the weapon, would the hit life and mana leeches go up?

Thank you. I thought as much when I played with knuckleheads imbuing calculator but wasn’t sure if it worked that way in practice.

Which is why my Samp seldom carries ssi on any of his double axes. Gets it all through other items.

Sadly, the toon I’m doing this for will need SSI on the weapons to get to 1.5. I’m looking at a thrower using soul glaives. But if I can get some more SSI on the suit, then maybe I can lower the SSI on my weapons. Time will tell.

I'm in the process of making a thrower and I have 50 ssi on my suit. I am thinking of changing out my chest piece which will drop me to 40 ssi but I dread having to put SSI back on my weapons :(

You need to look at the pro and con of changing the chest piece. What does the new chest piece add to your template and what would you loose on your weapon? The question is, Will this change make your character better?

That's the problem, I can't find any consistent information on a good garg thrower template so I have no idea what would be beneficial or not. I don't even know what min stats I need on my gear.

I'm currently running real skill -
120 Throwing
120 Tactics
120 Anatomy
120 Chivalry
100 Spirit Speak
80 Bushido
60 Necromancy

You going in wraith form? If so, you only need 20 natty necro to stay in form. Drop some necro, increase spsp for more mana leech.

Just an FYI, it takes 210+ stamina, and 55 SSI to get to 1.25 with a soul glaive.

I gave up trying to reach the 1.25 swing speed with a soul glaive. I'm at 200 stam and 50 ssi. I run no ssi on my weapons.

This is my thrower:
1620394839983.png

i dont see a point for me to have 120 chiv, since i dont have 4/6 fc/fcr.
Also i throw at 1.25s all my pieces are stone, and i got 10 stam on every piece.
Before the SSI eppy came out, to reach 210+ stam i used jewels with 4 stam and M&S glasses. Used to run 10 ssi on both jewels.
Nowadays with the SSI eppys, i use the khal ankhur pendant, ozy apron and M&S glasses, and only n1 jewel with 10 ssi. Also not using cameo, cause i dont need the 5 SSI.

For weapons, all my weapons runs 30 SSI and 25 DI. i couldnt find a big reason to not have SSI or DI on weapons since it makes easier to put a suit together and to find good jewels.

For me, there is a sea of SSI for throwers, since u dont drop it from glaive.

Dropping SSI on the weapon allows you have higher leeches so there is a benefit. But I agree it's much more convenient having SSI on the weapon. I'm still in the process of trying to get stone gear with the right stats. Once I can get 10 stam on all stone pieces I will rework my char.
