    Is there a Bowcraft Enhancing Calculator available similar to the Tailoring/Smith Armor Calculator available on Stratics?

    I have this bow:

    Hit Lightning 42%
    Hit Mana Leech 22%
    Hit Lower Attack 40%
    SSI 25%
    DI 35%

    ... and would like to try to enhance with Ash, Yew, or possibly Frostwood but have NO clue what the statical chances of breaking a bow are based upon the wood type used, # of mods on bow, and intensities of mods.

    So if anybody knows of a calculator/tool, that would be great. I'm also interested in hearing people's opinions of whether or not it would break. I'm relatively new to Bowcrafting and haven't enhanced enough bows to get an idea for myself.

    Thanks!

    Part of the problem is that we've never been given the data on how wood enhancing makes success checks.

    With Metals and leather, it's simple. only resists change on armor, and on weapons, only the damage allocation and 1-2 other minor properties changed, and not all of them are involved into the check process.

    With wood, you get DI, and other properties that were never added by materials before.
