    i pulled a nice shield out of shame this week, i decided to imbue it tonight.

    it started with this

    Hit Point Regen 3
    HCI 5
    SSI 5
    DI 35
    phy 15
    enrgy 1

    so i decided i would use a charge on my forged metal artifact tool and enhance this bad boy.
    i have a real nice Hit Point Regen suit that i love to roll around in, and i figured slapping 2 more hit point regen onto this shield would make it to die for on my macer.

    so i enhanced it with bloodwood.
    it deleted the HPR 3 and reset it to HPR 2!
    it should have put it to HPR 5, darn it!!!

    since when does enhancing with wood erase a the property and start it over from scratch?

    im thinking this is a bug, but holy hell, i have bad enough luck with those bloody expensive forged metal artifact tools!

    I think we better take this as a general warning. Shields don't normally spawn with hpr, so I'm guessing there's no coding in the enhancing to look for it.

    Are you saying you pulled a shield that had Hit Chance Increase on it?

    Probably related to this issue, is the fact that if you imbue 2 HPR onto wooden armor and then enhance with Bloodwood, you still only get 2 HPR, instead of 4 HPR. :(

    Yeah I didn't say anything earlier but it seems like I remember this is now intentional. I recall the HPR 4 wooden armor and I think I remember the devs putting in a change to prevent it.

    Wait! Seriously? No more HPR 4 for imbued and enhanced wooden armor? For sure?

    This should definitely removed again, if true. When I can find stuff with hpr 9 on it, why should 4 on a crafted part be a problem?
    It is called "enhancing" for cruds sake!

    Enhancing Armor/shields with blood wood or yew would (anything that adds HPR) will reset the property and cap it at +2 hpr.

    This has actually been in effect for a while,(don't remember approximately when this was added.) Although I'm not sure if it's intended or a bug.

    thats strange, cause i have an entire suit that is HPR 4 that i made from loot that i enhanced.

    granted it was from a long time ago.

    but ya, with loot being able to come stock at HPR 9 youd think they would fix this issue.
