Artificer for Hire (imbuing)

    Hello all,

    Right away, sorry for the long post :) However, if you are interested in hiring an Artificer (imbuer) at a reasonable rate, read on!

    I am looking to take custom orders for imbuing. I sold some jewelry at the auction last night but would be able to better serve the public by custom making jewels to fit your purpose. Some of the jewels sold for very little, some far more than I expected. We can both save time by making the set that is just right for you!

    For those not familiar with how imbuing works, you can assign 500 points of intensity to weapons, armor and jewelry. The different properties have multipliers assigned to them.

    For instance:
    Luck is 1.0 : So 100 luck added = 100 points of intensity
    Skills are 1.4 : So +15 skill = 140 points of intensity
    LMC is 1.1 : so 8% LMC = 110 points of intensity

    Different properties require different resources and max properties require special resources (which don't get used up upon a failed attempt - the others do)

    Enhanced items can't be imbued

    Imbued items can be enhanced - On the test shard I got a 430 of 500 intensity leather cap enhanced with final resists of 17, 18, 18, 19, 20 (92 total)


    Payment - Instead of gold, I'm offering to imbue your items for: 100% of resources used, and additional 20% of resources called for, plus 1 relic fragment (if no relic fragments are used).

    So, if you order the following ring: (500 of 500 intensity)

    Taming +13
    Lore +13
    Luck +100
    LRC 20%
    Phys resist 3%


    This will use 8 enchanted essense, roughly 20 residue (due to failures), 10 chagra mushrooms and 10 faery dust.

    Your payment would be whatever resources it took to make plus 2 enchanted essense, 2 residue, 2 chagra mushrooms, 2 faery dust and 1 relic fragment.

    I will cover the minor jewels used.

    Given prices I've seen, this ring would cost you roughly 300k plus the special resources (chagra mushrooms and faery dust) Haven't seen these for sale. A lot of jewelry is created around the 80-90% intensity range to avoid special resources. I can let you know where to hunt for the ones you'll need or sell you some.

    The last property added is always the cheapest one to avoid expensive failures.


    Should you still desire to deal in gold, we can discuss pricing, but you providing the resources plus 20% and a relic if none are used is by far the best way to go.

    My ICQ is 345-670-847 or send me a PM.

    Thanks for the interest

    Origin Thief, are you legendary?

    This is an interesting prospect. Would you do this for other equipment as well?

    Yes, my crafter is legendary. I will imbue any type of item - Jewels, Weapons, Armor. Also, I will imbue equipment that already exists. For instance, if you have a ring with 3 FCR, 1 FC - I can then add 20 LRC or whatever else you may desire. This will help cut costs for you.

    Also, as I had with a previous customer, if you need items unraveled - I will do that free of charge. Just bring the items to me in an unraveling bag. This way, you can get the resources you'll need to imbue and pay the 20% commission without having to go buy overpriced resources. After killing a few swoops, you'll have enough items to unravel and give you enough residue and essense to imbue items. Relic frags can either be bought from player vendors, me for 125k each or I can unravel arties or top end equipment you own. Random note - killing 30 or so swoops yielded one item that unraveled as a relic.

    Feel free to ICQ or PM me to discuss any items you may be looking to make. I'll be able to give you a estimate, let you know what will fit on the piece, and let you know what to hunt to get rare resources that you may need for max property intensity.

    Right, thanks for the reply.

    I am currently building resources to work this skill on both GL and Origin. That being said, when tired of this activity it would be nice to go stomping around in something that would encourage me to get on with my project so I can do it for myself, and others.

    I can think of three characters right off that would find equipment upgrades highly useful. It may take me a bit of time but I will work this week to put together a list of items by character that could be tackled one by one.

    Will then shoot a pm so we can start talking.
