    For fans of Woodland Armor there is now a way to do 100% enhancements to it. A bit pricey in my book but if your willing to throw down $10.

    http://www.uogamecodes.com/store/prod_detail.asp?ProdID=UOFORGEDTOOL10&CartID={46F5C707-824B-43DB-BAD0-4E1B9E36A388}&PromoID=996

    You`d think you would get more usage.

    You`ll have to copy paste it to your browser.

    eh, at least the meager charges will keep all those who imbued then enhanced woodland hit chance suits from totally beating themselves over the head with the keyboard.

    It would definitely be a time saver for those who wanted to buy 4 or 5 and dont mind dishing out the cash.

    Be fairly easy to hit the HPR cap to. Hell you can get 4 HPR instead of 2 HPR using Bloodwood. Or just go completely for Mods instead of Resists. & add whatever wood type to fix resist issues.

    Even with heartwood, you're not guaranteed to get 5 hci or 10 di. But it won't be NEARLY as painful.

    The HPR bonus from Bloodwood does not stack on imbued gear. I am not sure if it stacks if you enhance a non-imbued piece.

    I had some crazy plan to make a scribe mystic mage with no meditation and use an elf instead of a human. My first piece that I imbued with HPR2 (among other things) and then enhanced with Bloodwood only had 2 HPR...

    The HLL from enhancing weapons with Bloodwood does not stack either. So if you imbue a weapon with HLL you will not get the 16 HLL on top of what you imbued.

    Not that I'm planning on using HPR in any of my suits, but I didn't know that.

    I posted somewhere in this forum about a hpr/RPD suit I made for PVP which was less then impressive when on the field.

    I'd go to test and burn out suit over a week just to see what it's like before doing it with RL shard gold.

    Not that it matter to much, but does it not stack at all, or does it just not stack past the cap? Wouldn't be much point in doing it at all if it don't stack past the cap, but just curious if it is a capping issue or maybe it is just broken.

    It does not stack at all. You cannot make HPR4 using bloodwood, though I am not sure about HPR3 only because I never tried it.

    Im intrested to see someone use one of these (or several) and compaire it to what its like now to get HCI on a woodland piece after imbuing.

    When i made my suite it cost about 1mill per piece i made and it took on average 40-50 to get one to come out with the HCI that didnt break.

    When people start selling them in game for gold itll be around 20-30mill for one i recon, be intresting to see if it really does work out cheaper/the same/or actually more.

    Only thing i dont like about it is thats its gona cost you $1 per charge, thats steep.

    Well I'm currently training a crafter/imbuer on a new, dead, shard to support a sampire.

    I'll be going the heartwood route so I'll keep track of cost and let you know.

    In theory, instead of going through 40-50 base pieces to get HCI, it really should be between 4 and 5 pieces.

    Thats, conservatively, 35 million gold less per piece made. Extrapolate from there knowing you need to make 5 armor pieces - 175 mil.

    Figure you need 25 charges of the 100% enhance tool, $25.

    So what it really comes down to is would you rather spend 175 mil, or $25.

    Obviously the math is pretty assumptive, but should be pretty close for an average.

    I think its a nice addition to the game, as some people have alot of time to play and make alot of gold and end up better of in the long run, opposed to people who work long hours and dont get many hours to play.

    This way they can still be just as equal as the people who have gold to spend as they have money to spend.

    It makes it more even.

    Also instead of people buying 175mill off a broker there tecinaly buying the 175 of EA :)

    Hope they invest that cash into the game.

    They need to make a EXTREMELY hard in game quest to re-charge these tools. Otherwise I for one will not be buying one.


    Its a nice idea though, but really, in this economy i have slowly shaved down from 4 accts to 1 acct, yet, if you want this leet item spend more money?

    There is an EXTREMELY hard in game quest to recharge thses tools. Its called Make gold and buy one for gold.

    Cant get much more EXTREMELY hard than making 30mill.

    I will definitely be purchasing a few of these.

    I think the benefits easily outweigh the cost.

    This is going to give me 5 additional mod slots on my Sampire suit!

    If Lynk's numbers are right it's worth it. I'm not up on current gold pricing/sales but it seemed it was around 50 cents a mil, or 2 mil for a dollar. 25 bucks at that rate is 50 mil, 1/3 of the price of the 175 mil Lynk estimated, so its a savings of time and money (in game or out) and is worth it for Woodland.......

    But does it really mean 100% SUCCESS chance, or does it mean 100% Boost... meaning double your previously low chances....... there is some sneaky wording in the description of the tool..... If anyone gets one let us know if it truly is 100% Success chance

    Well I used runics in the past to get HPR 2, then enhanced with bloodwood to get HPR 4

    I haven't done it in ages, but with imbuing, if it still works, you could make one serious suit.

    Yep, 100%!

    Just used 3 charges off of one to finish the 3 pieces my better half has always wanted for her tamer's luck/lrc/lmc/mr suit!

    An incredible addition to the game I must say. And for 10 bucks, well worth the time it would save you to do the pieces the old fashion way.
