    Use the skill actively, like you'd use hiding.

    There is also a bag you can buy that acts similar to a recycling bag so that you can do bulk unraveling.

    Ahh so no dungeon unraveling? Can you fail to unravel like smelting and lose the item without getting anything for it? What skill level do you need for the 3 resources?

    On Retributon, during my testing, it never failed nor lost any item during unraveling -
    It either worked at the needed skill level or returned the message "You cannot magically unravel this item".

    The imbuing skill levels, for me on retribution test, to enable a successful unravel attempt were =
    Magical Residue = 0 Imbuing skill
    Enchanted Essence = 50.1 Imbuing skill
    Relic Fragment = 95.1 Imbuing skill

    These imbuing skill levels were also necessary for Item Identification success,
    to be able to tell what an item would produce from unraveling.

    I have been collecting loot to unravil, can I place the bag in the unravil bag and have the loot unravil? Or do I have to take everything out of the bag and place them in the unravil bag?

    It behaves very much like a recycling bag, but has two settings: one to unravel all regular magical items in the bag and one that will also unravel any artifacts you've put in it. (it's a safety feature in case you put something you didn't mean to into it)

    What do you mean? I want to but a full bag of loot into the unravil bag and have it unravil the loot that my skill is able to unravil. What is left over will be placed in chests for unraviling later as skill grows.

    Is there only one soulforge or can you get one and place in your home?

    Do I understand correctly that you do not need any resources other than the item itself to unravel it?

    There are soulforges in the Gargoyle down and you can craft them to place them home.


    Yes only need the item to unravel.

    so when you are first starting out, you don't want to dump everything into the unraveling bag, since you only gain for 1 use. Put them in 1 at a time to get skill gains?

    I believe each unraveled item is treated as a separate action. But given that you're only talking about the first 25.0 skill, it really doesn't make a big difference - if you're serious about imbuing, I'd be tempted to start a custom character with 50.0 skill.

    of course! That makes so much sense. forgot about the new toon creation using the advanced option..

    Hey I'd pay some good money to buy an advanced character token wtih the new skills up to 85! {Just in case someone from EA wanders into this thread}
