    The SA site say this:

    3.Master Artisan
    A strong cultural emphasis on art and craftsmanship grants the Gargoyles an increased chance to imbue, enhance, and unravel magical items.

    The racial abilities in game say this:

    Master Artisan
    A strong cultural emphasis on art and craftsmanship grants the Gargoyles an increased chance to imbue and unravel magical items.


    So the question is: there is or there is not an enhance bonus if you are a gargoyle?

    Yes, gargoyles have a higher chance of successfully enhancing items.

    However, since we never actually see the chance of success quoted anywhere in-game, you just have to take it on faith that it's there when the task is handed over to the often-malicious RNG.

    I tested imbuing with a elf and with a gargoyle and there was about a 4-5% better chance for gargoyle to make item at 120 skill...wish I could go test it again to make sure!

    yes, imbuing has better chance, but would be nice to know if the chance is increased with the classic enhance too :)

    Quoted from http://www.uoherald.com/guide/guide.php?guideId=282 . Though I am not shure if that is a typo. Or if the racial enhancing bonus (if there is one) is additionally.

    Just a terminology note: those are the imbuing chances - the original poster was asking about enhancing chances. I meant to check if those were actually calculated the same way, but forgot.

    edit: this was a reply to a post with imbuing percentages ... it was good info and might still be relevant

    don't worry, this is a hard question because there is no way in game to try this... probably only chrissary or dracon can reply :/

    Sorry to correct you .... I was surprised too, when I ve read that article and I am wondering, if it is a typo or intended.

    Personally I would say, that this bonus should not be restricted to gargoyles only but that is another story. There could also be an additionally racial bonus on enhancing but I am not shure about.

    mmm that smell like an imbuing success chance instead of a chance to enhance an item with another material...

    probably the ingame text is right, garogyle is linked only to imbuing, the cassic enhance is not affected at all :/

    and as I said, we need the devs for bring some light to this :/

    I dont see, why gargoyles should have two imbuing bonusse. Thats why i think, the enhance bonus could be true. With how imbuing works, it would make sense. At least you try to improve something with materials that have an other kind of magic inside. I only dont understand, why this should be a gargoyle only bonus. *g*
    Btw I found another source saying the same. But it is from a very early version of SA features.
    At http://www.uoherald.com/stygianabyss/gameoverview/skills/imbuing.php is the same thesis.

    well, nice... 3% at 120 imbuing -.-
    I think that my worker will stay human, I get better bonuses... 3% is too low for spare 120 skill points in imbuing :/
