    Saws, I would say not a chance..Bows, yes. Because the best crafted bow is still better than the best imbued one.

    TY

    I have several I will want to move at some point but wanted to know if they were still of any value or just burn them myself.

    I have to disagree with speedy's statement...HCI and DCI can both be imbued up to 25% which is what a heartwood will yield. Balanced same as imbuing...SSI slightly better with heartwood at 40% and all the other mod's same...Real difference would be you can make exactly what one would want through imbuing rather than spend a fortune and not get zip...(just like i did and a guildie of mine...) although neither one of us paid for ours...

    Although prolly all 15 bows crafted would turn out to be relics so prolly still worth quite a bit imo

    I have to agree with speedy.

    yes you can imbue those intensities (hell you can even get the 40 ssi if you risk breaking on the enhance) but property weight is a killer.

    a heart wood kit COULD make you something along the lines of

    balanced, 40s hit fb, 40ish velocity, 40is HLD, 30-40 ssi, and 43 di.

    You can not do that with imbue.

    Hell the balance takes up 150 of your 500 prop weight, DI counts as one of your 5, velocity is rated at 1.3x or 1.4x, hld at 1.2x, ssi at 1.1x, any hit spell is rated at 1.4x. Yes the heartwood is a crap shoot but it is the same crap shoot it has always been.

    The Same could be said of a verite hammer or valorite hammer as well; they can potentially make a better weapon than I could ever consider imbuing. that being said, the distance between what I can do with regular melee weap imbuing vs. runic hammer creation is not so great a gap as what can be created via imbue vs. heartwood fletching for archery.

    how long have heartwoods been around? you'd think we'd of seen a wep of that magnitude already. Im just stabbing in the dark here buy im gonna guess there have been upwards of 20-30 heartwood kits burned on siege and i've yet to see anything that even comes close to that...we've had imbuing what 2 months? i've already created one of each wep that is potentially that good or better :)

    These were both made from the same Heartwood kit!

    I would be rather embarrassed to post the one i got from my one and only shot at a heartwood (thank god i didnt buy it) but i'd prolly get flamed for posting such a pathetic wep LOL. I think im gonna bid on it though seeing as i know how long it takes to get one and i just dont have the patience to do it right now...
