[Imbuing] Is anyone else having no luck making 100% elemental damage weapons since the last patch?

    Just curious. I just burned through at least 10 dull copper hammers, and the best I could get was 70/30. I did some fooling around, and it appears to me that it is no longer possible to make 100% elemental damage weapons using powerful reforging. When I didn't use powerful reforging I got a 60/40 split, which appears to me to indicate that if you want to create a 100% elemental damage weapon you have to go beyond powerful reforging now.

    Is anyone else experiencing this now?

    I swear read somewhere you cant get 100% from anything lower than a shadow, thats why iv always used shadow. Usually get 1 in 2 hammers.

    Shadow Runic Hammers with Powerful Reforging still make 100% Elemental Weps.
    Just the other day, i made 2 100% Fire Damage Soul Glaives for me and a friend. I imbued mine with 20% DI/30% SSI/Spider Slayer/37% Mana Leech (Capped)/50% HLD. I then imbued his with 30% DI/30% SSI/Spider Slayer/37% Mana Leech (Capped)/50% HLA. Between those 2 weps, Disco and a Greater Dragon tanking, Navrey goes down fast as hell. No need for Con Wep.

    Yeah this is not a change in the last patch. Semmerset posted some really good tables in the "Reforing Howto" thread in this forum.

    So let me get this straight. In order to make 100% elemental damage weapons you should use a shadow runic hammer and select powerful re-forging and grand artifice w/ inspired artifice w/ exquisite /of Quality for the name?

    Correct Matlock, also remember if you get self repair from Exquisite/Quality it goes away during imbuing.

    Don't forget about enhancing. If you use a DC runic and get 60% fire you still can get to 100% fire with a bronze enhancement, though there is risk it will break.

    I tried this last night and the only hammer I could get a 100% elemental off was Shadow (70/30 seems to be the best I got with DC) I tried enhancing a few with bronze as suggested and broke them hehe!

    I've had the same problem... I was using DC Runic's...getting 70/30 elemental properties which is fine under normal circumstances. I was able to enhance all but the posien and energy weapons, due to the ingot property allowances. I forged three Diamond Maces, 1 War Axe and 2 Soul Glaives to 100% Fire. Other results yieled were; 2 War Axes, 3 Diamond Maces 1 Soul Glaive to 100% Cold. My Method, DC Runic-Powerful Reforge/Grand Artifice/Inspired Artifice/ Exquisite of Quailty. Held a +60ASH, Blacksmith Talisman, enhanced all but one, used a forge tool for that one. Should Find it to Burn 4 charges....

    Would someone give me a rundown of slayer types with the best elemental damage types associated, I've just got turned on to this, and it will save me from casting CW. I just made several 100% fire, cold and energy weapons using Powerful Reforge with Exquisite/Quality.

    Undead - Fire
    Repond - Fire
    Reptile - Cold
    Arachnid - Fire
    Demon - Cold or Energy (Older Demon types are generally weaker to Energy, while newer Demon types are generally weaker to Cold)
    Elemental - Varies, Elemental's Resists vary so widely between types, that i just go with 100% Chaos Damage

    I've been using this method for quite a while with good success. Two to three days ago I made four 100% elementals in 3 hammers. However, today the best I can make is 30/70. Anyone else experiencing this using shadow runic/powerful/grand/inspired? And yes, I'm 100% sure that's what I was doing and it was a shadow runic.

    I am on test center trying for a 100% elemental bow using Ash runic, but I too see only 70/30. According to the table posted this should work. Maybe it`s a streak of bad luck across all shards, I dunno.

    Im trying to reforge 100% cold damage on a composite bow. Ash runic fletching tools is all I have. Is there something else I can try? The bows give me everything else but still remains 100% physical damage. Frustrating but lucky I am burning through them at Test Centre. Help appreciated pls :D Cheers

    Oak should be what you use to get 100% elemental damage.
