    Like if there was a Kryss -21 Mage no neg 15 DCI 50 Fireball...

    Would pvpers buy it?

    If so, how much would you pay, cause I can make one.

    Is there a market for imbued items period?

    yeah, but you gotta take into consideration, people can make them too. . everyone knows an imbuer these days dude, but its still in great demand.. .I've seen jewel sets with ring and brace that have 13/13 dci/hci 25 ep dmg increase in an identical set.

    The mage weap thing is in great demand, but honestly, i wouldn't pay too too much for something like that, being that I know I can get down there and get the resources myself. maybe, 10mil for something like that??
    I might pay that just to have a spare :thumbsup:

    People may be reluctant to spend a fortune since you can't add durability to imbued items.

    Only because People are not using POF on the item before imbuing it. When I see an imbued item on a vendor if its not @ 255 durability, no matter how sick it looks i wont give it another thought.

    So you're saying you can make

    -21 Mage Weapon
    Spell Channeling
    15 DCI
    50 Fireball??

    Take a screenshot and show me. I've been asking quite a few people about how much weapons can hold for different weights and from what you said it seems impossible that would fit. I'm not saying it won't but I don't think it would.

    i don't thikn you can get 50 ball. .

    If you start on a NORMAL iron blade, of exceptional quality, the best you can do is the 15 dci, with maybe a little room for some SSI, but you can't get around the inherent 40% dmg increase taking up that weight...


    In short, its not possible.

    However! if one was to take a magic wand with lightening? ? .. . . Trade secrets.. I have been muted.

    What I have been doing is finding weaps that have 4 or less props
    like I have many looted sc-1 mage weap -20 weapons, some are at 4 props some only just the 2.

    Just a simple
    SC -1
    Mage weap -20

    add FC+1 =3 props.
    add dci 13= 4 props
    add Fireball 45 = 5 props

    Being that the sc, FC, Mage weap are at 100% I leave the other 2 at 80%-90%.

    And if the weap has a useless mod at a high % I will then lower the % say HPA 50% down to 1-2% so I can fit other mods on a bit easier.

    not sure, but it seems like that new dye stuff can dye almost anything.

    You guys are forgetting item "weight" when it comes to imbueing.

    Its not just about the number of mods, each item has a maximum weight of 500.

    It would be impossible to make a weapon with
    -20
    SC no neg
    50 fireball
    15 dci

    (would be too much weight on the item)

    Long story short, you have to pick either hit spell or dci on a -20 mage weap.

    :( sorry to burst your bubbles!!

    That may be true if your doing 5 props at 100% but you dont need the last 2 at 100% they are just fine at 80-90% and that is doable.

    Ive been Imbuing for the last 7 months I have it pretty figured out. Your not going to make a 5x 100% weapon unless you get lucky with a runic. Best your going to do is 3x 100%, 2 @ 80-90% on the props. with imbuing.

    Thanks man..

    Hey also, your sig... Is false, if I threw my problems in a pile and I saw someone elses problem was "I have too much money"... I am pretty sure I would leave mine in that pile and thake care of his for him.

    Another tip, POF the hell out of the item before imbuing it. I am seeing way too many good imbued items that only have 60-80 durability its a waste really.

    I dont know about that, If someones problem was too much money there is probably something attached to it that we wouldn't want a part of.

    Yeah, I have seen that too, it's a shame... But I didn't know you could repair the items... Just can't powder it.. Ok that makes sense why someone would buy them now.

    well yeah;, thats what you need to keep in mind..

    another thing people need to keep in mind is the price of the ingredients doesn't really mean **** about the price of the weapon. . .

    I went down to rats last night just out of boredom, and got 6 abyssal cloth. . .
    I stopped in at the slimes/ellies, got 12 essence of singularity.. Plus, everyone knows someone that will imbue for them. .

    In summary, its really not THAT hard to make these 'ubber' items, but a fair price will easily disuade any of us from going through the trouble themselves..
    I would price accordingly.

    Like i said,

    SC, no neg, mw -20, dci 15 weaps should bring in around 10-15 mil.
    If you're sitting on a bunch of minor arties like pixie swatters and alchemy baubles and crap that can be broken down into relic frags, you're sitting on a gold mine, and need to get your ass to work! :thumbsup:
    (cus those are way harder to get now than any of the stupid ingredients)
