    I used dull coper hammers and got 75% HLL only.

    I tried with a copper hammer and still got 75% HLL, but this time with unwanted mods on the weapon.

    What gives?

    LL is based on the weapon speed, slower weps get you 100%. With a leafblade I have gotten like 65 range then if you imbue ssi on it the ll drops accordingly.

    You can reforge 100% HLL on a weapon that is 3.00s or slower. On faster weapons HLL varies from 70% (2.00s) to 96% (2.75s). You should use copper runics with power reforging to get max value.
    On ranged weapons the cap is 50%. You can imbue 50% HLL or reforge 70% on a dagger. You can imbue 50% on a soul glaive but you can't reforge more than 50% on it.

    I'm making some weapons myself (with some great help and info from CorwinXX) I managed to make some 100% HML bladed staffs using copper runic and poweful charge. Is it the same hammer to get the HSL?

    I've made some 100%HLL double axes (and no other modifier except DI), with this modifiers: Copper runic hammer Powerful Reforging Inspired Reforging Choose Vampiric/of the Vampire It takes 4 charges. On average, you'll get 1 weapon out by every hammer, with 100% HLL or HML, and no other modifier (except 40 DI). You have to have patience... :D

    Is it possible (maybe using different hammer) to get 100 HML and 100 HLL on the same weapon?

    What do you mean by "prepatched" . What patch and what did it change? Sorry about my ignorance, but I've not been focused on uo much for some time now.

    Was that the one that changed some specials and whatnot? I have a vague recollection of it.

    They changed weapons damage and speed. They also changed specials for some weapon. I wasn't playing when it happened (I returned 7 month ago) so may be there were several patches not just one.

    That is the one that I recall. Welcome back. I hope I also have the patience to learn the ins and outs of making a good suit in the current environment. Your guides are great. Thanks.

    HLL scales based on weapon swing speed... that includes base weapon speed and SSI. The faster the weapon, the less leech you get. I theory, the leech over time should remain about the same though.
