Talisman will let you have a better chance of making exceptional armor (if it's on the talisman) which will give you a few resists.

Material all depends on what you are looking for, for max resists, use barbed, for higher fire resist, use horned, for (40) extra luck use spined.

Yep, that is the case unfortunately :)

That's why really good barbed armor can cost a fortune to get, because more than likely someone burned many kits to get that one nice piece.

I would avoid making chest armor, because most players just wear the rune beetle carapace and focus on building barbed gear around that piece. I would stick with legs, sleeves, gorgets, and maybe gloves. The head and chest areas already have solid choices, like armor of fortune, rune beetle, spirit of the totem, hat of magi, and such that people mostly avoid wearing barbed gear on their heads and chests.

Also if it is a difficult piece to make (samurai gear comes to mind) then a talisman will help there too (with regular crafting bonus).

I agree with Mercenary too, stick with sleeves, legs, gorgets and possibly gloves. If your going to make armor specifically for a character that will never use Meditation then you can make studded stuff, but generally just stick with regular "leather armor" so it won't effect anyone with Meditation.

Oh yea, forgot to mention, the talisman's can go up to 30% in chance for bonuses and exceptional. So if you find any talisman with a 25 or higher chance get it! It does in fact help a lot, it's actually really noticeable as well.

If you can't afford the barbed kits, horned kits can lead to awesome armor as well. So much so that two of my characters are wearing more horned gear than barbed. It is just random, but just because barbed seems to be better, doesn't mean horned can't be good either :)

Is it worth enhancing woodland armor and what do you use to enhance it?

If the piece is solid, it is worth enhancing. You enhance them with carpentry, and a runic dovetail saw. You can get some AMAZING gear. I'm wearing some ridiculous woodland leggings on my pvper that was upgraded with bloodwood.

No need to use a runic when enhancing.

I am a firm believer and very vocal advocate for woodland armor here! I have in my possesion 3 pieces with over 70 resists on them, sold 1 with 80(for 12 mil) and have several more REALLY nice pieces that just dont fit. I have a friend that is EXTREMELY lucky when it comes to enhancing with his carpenter. I am the lucky one on leather, so he and others come to me for leather.

I have burned 5 Barbed kits in my time. My crafter was never over 115 tailoring at the time (I think hes 117+ right now, just never remember to work on him, shoulda 120ed him prob 6 months ago) I have a 26/25 tali, and wear it just for an added extra punch, although I imagine I am already maxxed out on 100% exc chances, and have gotten atleast 50 out of the 75 uses turn up really nice pieces. I give alot of it away to guildmates and new pvpers that aren't fully suited up yet, so alot of the stuff is gone. I have heard of people who get 15 crappy pieces and then there are the 2-5 good piece folks, then I have heard of others like me where they make 7-10 good pieces every time. The stuff that I wouldnt consider "great" for pvp purposes still is decent stuff. I mean it has 3-4 nice mods on it, but resists are all low, which would work on say a tamer or bard. My tamer is suited up with a nice LRC resist suit from them.
