    Could someone explain to me how they are getting this on weapons. I have see a few at the rares fest but they dont seem to be enhanced with anything but are imbued. Any light on this subject would be helpful.

    ...

    LUCKY roll on a high end runic with GM Arms Lore is my guess... still 70 DOES seem high even considering.

    I would take it it is on a wooden item. They make it, put 50 on it, then enhance it with yew. Poof, 70 DI

    That would only take it to 60%

    You can only do it with certain, older weapons, ie 'of Exceptional Quality'. You can tell by the tag.

    Old 'of Exceptional Quality' items don't have the increased damage count but they have 500 points of imbueing room. They are effectivly blank items with 500 points of room on them.

    These items had 20% damage increase and they are adding 50% to them which then gives 70%. I don't know if it counts up to 70% though.

    adding 50 to 20 gives you 50 total. not sure what you're trying to say here. I got a lance off a peerless that has 94% hit mana leech, 18 HLD,12 HCI and 18 damage increase. it's currently 4/5 @ 296/450, so seeing 70% DI could be from a drop.

    They're old exceptional quality items.

    Sigh, adding 50 and 20 should give you 70.

    These are not some random drop you get from a peerless they are old items that you cannot get anymore. These players have imbued them with 50 damage incease which adds to the current 20 and show's as 70. IMO this mod is actually a waste. I have a 6 mod exp quality kryss which has the 20 damage but 5 other added mods ie:Mana leech, Hit Lightning, HCI, DCI, SSI and 20 damage increase.

    Sadly this item came with the DCI and HCI on it or those mods would not be added.

    with the right recipes,runics(some lucky roles), and GM arms lore you can make bows(and wild staff) with very high damage increase. i believe the highest you can go is a frozen longbow, made with frostwood, and using a heartwood runic. that would be a 77% DI(max). keep the ones with good roles then imbue the rest of what u want.

    ideally you would make recipes with a runic out of plain wood. imbue the rest, then enhance with your chosen wood to get the most possible mods. depending on what you want of course

    Wouldn't 80 be possible then on bow?

    50 for DI imbue
    20 for Exceptional quality
    10 for wood enhancing

    I was wondering when someone would take notice. I've been buying up those old exceptional weapons whenever I get a chance for the past 6 months.

    Yes, you can enhance wooden weapons with yew (etc).

    Unfortunately I broke the only crossbows & heavy crossbows I had trying to enhance them. Pretty hard to find them now, but I bet there are piles of them sitting in bank boxes on old characters.

    P.S. I have some for sale on my vendor on Great Lakes.
