Chain Helftic

General Information

Weave Description
A chain combining concepts present in Helm, Elfweave, and Celtic Visions.

Each weave cell is made up of a mirrored adjacent unit (in this case, made of a single center ring and a mirrored pair of root cells). This unit is then reinforced. This weave cell can then be directly translated to make a chain.

While Helftic is a reinforced weave, if you take away the reinforcing rings, the structure of the base chain you are left with is unstable. As such, the reinforcing rings are inherent to the structure and the weave is not named as reinforced. Since this is the first stable "variant" of the unstable base, it is considered to be a base chain.
