    The schematic requires Vendigrothian Sheet Metal, not Mithil.

    There's no Mithril in the Vendigroth Ruins. There are two sheets of vendigrothian metal there, though.

    Confusion in both cases probably caused by both sheets using the same graphic.

    So are my own. On that and how many HP various NPC with no damage resistance lost when walking into my traps.

    A personal rediscovery: One of the thugs attacking *someone* under the Sobbing Onion wields a Balanced Sword. You might want to mention it in the entries above.

    Corrected, thanks.

    I have had already added your suggestion in the final entry considering that your observations usually are more precise than mine.

    Done.

    Thanks again for your contribution that made this guide more complete and precise.

    I don't think your stats for the medium machined platemail are right. There are several in the game and they're all called the same but they have different stats. The one you craft should have higher DR.
