    Cannot imbue anything with the new properties on them (tested with eaters on them)

    I tried to imbue 25 enhance potions on a bracelet with 5 swing speed on it, and it changed to 5 enhance potions, and consumed my resources for 25%

    i made similar experiences, but not ready for conclusions yet...

    Bronze Shield of Aegis, 2 properties:
    (Brittle)
    Soul Charge 20
    DCI 20

    cannot be imbued at all (other brittle things can, so thats not it. and the item is certainly not over the cap)

    ok, have tested with all of the "new" properties.
    If any of the, are present (like soul charge, eaters, mana drain, battle lust, reeactive para and all the others) the item cannot be imbued....

    Enahancing is similar to this as well, I enhanced a Bow that had 25% ssi, and numerous other mods, the SSI changed to 27% ssi instead of the normal 35%.

    also dull copper, has added 5% lower requirements on Some items i've enhanced with it, instead of the normal 50% lower requirments.

    heres an odd one


    i had a shield with 60% durability on it

    i powdered it up to 255

    i imbued the shield

    i had intensity but no room for new mods, so i put it back into durability, cranked it up to 90%.

    The shield turned to 9% durability, and dropped the durability to 173/173

    This I think I can explain:
    please check out the thread about enhancing the shame loot on the first page of UOHall.

    My theory:
    Since the values of Durability and Lower Requ are set wrong (when unravelling 1=10 and 100=1000, when enhancing or imbuing 1=0,1 and 100=10) I think what happened to you is following:
    You imbue the shield, have room left, decide to imbue Dur higher and suddenly the new decimals come into play. The previously very high value of Dur suddenly is only a 10th worth in intensity.

    Thats at least my theory (although the wrong values of Dur and Lower requ are proven by now).

    The SSI thing worries me a lot, cause I cannot tell what the exact value here is....

    Yeah we too noticed you can't imbue anything with eater or casting focus, but believe this to be a feature, not a bug.

    so it seems when you imbue items in this new loot system, its not all of them.. but i think its the ones with prefix/suffix on the item name.

    I have a ring of slaughter it was 20 hci 20 dci 15 Di 15 EP -100 luck

    I imbued the EP down, as i was goin to use it for pvm
    I imbued EP to 5%/25% on the imbuing gump, when i checked the actual item After the imbue, It had 1% EP

    so some of these items reduce Enhancing effects/imbuing effects by 80%

    If you imbue +25% EP on one of these rings It will only be 5% after you successfully imbue it.

    same with SSI on bows enhanced with Ash wood, it should be +10% SSI/10% Lower requirements, but after a successful enhance it becomes +2% ssi -2% lower requirements.

    not sure if its a bug, or is intended.

    only seems right if the item has tons of mods to get a reduced effect from enhancement, but the imbuing reduction is prolly a bug il wager.

    Armor seems to be unaffected by the reduction (Maybe to lower requirements), but the resists are added correctly as to old loot/crafted items.

    anything with "Requires Stygian Abyss Expansion" Cannot be imbued, it will have a mod that's usually exclusive to SA Artifacts.

    Which seems immensely strange that's how it should work, given that SA was the expansion that introduced imbuing.

    From reading this, something's rather rotten in Denmark, VA.

    Inconclusive, I don't for a second believe that the dev team would release into the wild buggy software, and if they did, it would be fixed with a blink of an eye.

    I found a pair of bone arms in Shame with 110 luck and enhanced them to 150 luck with spined leather.

    Just tried to imbue 3 shields I did not unravel and found none of them could be imbued. Too bad they have some nice properties but not as a shield. I just get the message that you cannot imbue this item. This wasn't one of those graphic glitches where you have to put something in another container and open it to see the changes?

    It has been stated in different threads now:
    all items that have one or more of the "new" properties (battle lust, eaters, soul charge, splintering weapon, mana drain, etc....) cannot be imbued at all - even if you have lots of room left.
    I do not think this was intended...

    The new loot shame Composite bows will not enhance. Will have to grab other bows and see if the same issue.
