    Hi guys I once made a suit a few years ago by reforging normal wood armor into a minor item that just showed its normalo resists and 5hci then i poffed the item imbued t0 the max and with a forged metal i enhanced it with darkwood to crossing my fingers i hopped to get 10 HCI

    So i just did that..problem ist i cannot seem to reforge 5 hci on a normal wood piede..i get all kinds of mods but no hcI? I was using an oak dovetail runic in the process...either they changed something in the game mechanics or i forgot how to do it?

    Oak, powerful, vicious/of slaughter should do it. Last time I tried was a while ago, and there's been 2 patches with respect to reforging since then, but I was able to do that with spined kits.

    Can you please explain? I was told to make an exceptional item using a non runic tool, choose the best resists, then reforge with spined/horned/barbed with vicious. I am trying to make gargoyle earrings, female plate armor, etc. with 5hci. I am only making 4 hci. This post was originally about wood armor and using oak wood, but what about metal? Is there a certain metal I should be using to get the 5 hci other than iron ingots?

    With metal armor you can use a shadow hammer to get 5hci. You won't get 5 every time, but maybe 1 in 4 that are HCI will be 5 HCI. You should use iron ingots at first, and then after you've reforged and imbued, you can enhance with whatever metal best suits your needs.
