    Petra's guide to imbuing seems like the best post so far on imbuing, any chance that it could be stickied at top of forum or a FAQ be made and stickied so that we dont have to constantly search the forums on how to imbue what/when etc.

    Thanks :thumbup:

    I hope some one is working on a FAQ for Imbuing. It would be nice to point them to it, as I have seen the same questions and answered throughout the forums (not just this one) about imbuing.

    My suggestions to include in a FAQ:

    Q: What can I unravel Artifacts into?
    A: http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=158985

    Q: Can I remove a completely remove a property from an item?
    A: http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=159771

    Q: How does Swing Speed Increase work with Weapon Speed & Stamina?
    (kinda related, as you wont want to over imbue an item)
    A: http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=154261&highlight=swing

    Q: How best do I train the skill?

    Q: What are the ingredients and where can I find the high intensity ones?
    A: http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/show_content.php?content=31013

    I gotta run, my guildmates are shouting at me and I have kept them long enough. Hope this helps.

    Stayin Alive,

    Edit to Add Further Questions:

    Q: Do the weighting modifiers apply to items when determining their score for unraveling?
    A: Currently, weighting modifiers do not affect unraveling.

    Q: Where can I find the general information on the skill?
    A: http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/show_content.php?content=30889

    Q: What bonuses do gargoyles get over humans & elves?
    A: I have seen too many conflicting posts about this, so I don't want to lead anyone stray. From what I have seen, success chance seems to be dependant on not only the race, but the number of total properties on the item, given an characters of equal skill, the same forge location, and identical items. I do not believe it is a flat xx% bonus.

    Q: What is the difference between soul forges?
    A: I have seen too many conflicting posts about this, so I don't want to lead anyone stray..

    Q: Do I need any other skills to Imbue Items?
    A: No. Though being able to craft your own items to imbue or gather your own materials would not be a waste of effort.

    Q: Do I need to have Item Identification skill to use Imbuing?
    A: No. Item Identification can be used to determine what quality of Imbuing Ingredient (Magical Residue, Enchanted Essence, or Relic Fragment) the item will yield when unravelled. Item ID does require a skill in Imbuing to determine what the item will unravel to.

    Q: What does an Unravelling Bag do and where can I get one?
    A: (4-9-010 Edit) There used to be a bag specifically for unravelling, similar to a salvage bag. The option to "Unravel Coantainer" was added to the imbuing menu, after the release of SA. The bags do not exist anymore, as they were all converted to normal bags.

    That's all I can think of for now.

    Petra...I was just looking at the Magic Effects overview table and the weights are all out of wack. It say HLL and HML at a 1.0 weight and I think they are 1.3 or 1.4s.

    Q
     
  6. how do you get access to the queen's soulforge? I can't find anyone giving any kind of quest, I'm sure I'm just missing it.

    There is no quest, but you need 10,000 loyalty points.

    I've been searching for a reference on imbuing resists to a piece. How arms lore effects it and all. I've had some I could imbue to 21 and others to 19 max. When I make normal sleeves do I want a higher or lower base resist to start with?

    You can only imbue armor resists to what the base for the item would be, without exceptional bonuses, +15.

    If I remember correctly, a Bascinet is 7/2/2/2/2 resists normally.

    So, you could imbue physical to 22, any of the others to 17.

    That's why, if you are going to imbue resists on an armor piece, you want to start with an armor piece that has high stats in the other resists from the exceptional bonuses, then imbue points into the low ones.

    For example, if you want an item that has high fire & poison resists, you want to look for one that has a runic bonus to neither, or perhaps one of them, with the EX bonus scattered in the ones ou aren't going to change the value of.

    There is a new skill gain guide in the Data Chest section. Petra's outdated guide has been unstickied.

    Links should go to the new guide.
