    What is the highest Defense Chance Increase you can reforge on a non-ranged weapon?

    So far the highest I've been able to get reforging a bunch of kyrss' is 20 DCI using the following method:

    Powerful Reforging
    Grand Artifice
    Towering of Aegis

    In the past I've made plenty of throwing weapons that I swear came out with as high as 35 DCI, but so far nothing for non-ranged weapons.

    Throwing and Archery weapons have a much higher HCI & DCI cap, from being meant to be used without a shield (even though throwing weapons can be used with a shield).

    For Runics, this is
    15% cap for Melee weapons
    25% cap for Ranged weapons

    The overcapping for reforging has similar separation between Melee and Ranged.

    Yeah that doesn't make much sense, because then 2 handed weapons should have the same caps as ranged weapons ya know.

    20% DCI is the best I could get with reforging using up to a gold runic.
