Is imbuing too hard?

    Nope. Time consuming, yes.

  2. Grats on that! Can I ask what your level was before you got a relic fragment?

    I'm not certain, but reports say 95 or above.

    To the OP, nice work. I hadn't thought about using special wood on a soul forge. I might just do that.
     
  4. I am so screwed.I only wanted to get to 75 for a soulforge...poop on a stick
     
  5. You can also make it in oak and stain it with the new dyes. :)

    Oh my,

    I would say that imbuing is redicolous easy if you can be leg in two days.

    Time consuming too. I'm hoping of hitting at least GM by Sunday night. Depends on how much peace and quiet I can manage to find this weekend.

    I didn't bother to keep track. If I had to guess, mabe 25k magic residue and 50k gems?

    Mine too!

    I have gone through everything I stocked before SA and then some.

    I am at 89.7, Anyone have any tips what to do at higher levels to gain but not use so many ingredients? Or anyone have a good way to get more ingredients?

    Well,

    it was not meant to be rude against OP.
    He has made a great work apparently.

    But I still think that if you leg in two days its to easy,even if you play all the time.

    First time I gm smith it took a loooong time.
    I have started now and have mid 50...

    I have a noob question but I haven't paid much attention, you used scrolls to get to 120 right? Power scrolls? Or did they do away with that in imbuing? I'm hoping yes otherwise I have to wait a bit for a scroll... None of my guildies are ever one and I'm too busy to go in and spawn and hope not to get crashed >.<
     
  21. guum

    guum Guest

    You "buy" the powerscroll through a quest from one of the artificers next to the soulforge in Ter Mur. Cost is 50 relic fragments, I believe, but you can buy lower-level ones for cheaper ingredients.

    Im buring dull runic making daggers from iron, unraveling them all you get 2 residue per dagger for 3 ingots :) put the ingots and hammers in an unravel bag craft them straight into it then unravel. Iv burned 120 dulls and im up to 99.2.

    Then imbue exceptional daggers with hit dispel [cheepest for mats] then at 90 add a second property [hit energy area cheepest again] and going up by 2% every 1.0 gain :)

    Unfortunately I ran out of hammers, and fletching kits, and all the junk in my house....but I still need more Residue.

    At least I have lots of free space in my house now :D

    Can someone explain why as I gained, slowly sooooooooooooo damn slowly I saw I needed a third item to progress. Raptor teeth, slith tongues. !!!

    I had seen no mention of this. Anyway around it? I actually thought I could gained on items I made and gems. Silly me.

    All I wanted was a soulforge that is not 3 million. Now I have to get all the freaking body parts too. I am just disgusted! lol

    God damn,

    this is really embarassing.
    A legendary decorator is much faster than a real smith at heart.

    Anyway.
    Well done mi Lady ! !

    Heehee, well I really rushed to get to unravel relics so I could make forges! Whats sad is I have two of them up (on each front corner) and I bet I never use them. The forge in Ter Mur is more social. :D

    I have not tested it myself, but I have read reports that if a gargoyle uses a race-change token, they are offered the choice of human or elf.

    Here is a noob question. How can I use the unravel bags? when its in my backpack I click on it nothing happens. When I put it on the ground and click on it the a little 2 line menu comes up but is grayed out and I cannot click any options. I have tried using unravel on the bag itself and that doesn't work. It would be a lot easier if someone could explain how to use it please.

    You need to be next to the soulforge in ter mur, it's just to the west of where the bank is a couple screens. Another way to unravel is to use the "imbuing" skill on the skill menu, this will give you a choice to imbue or unravel one specific item (or other things).
     
  41. I'd like someone to explain how I could make a bag full of daggers with a DC hammer, unravel them, use all that up, then go back to try again and can't unravel anything else. What gives?

    If you are even 1 stone overweight it won't let you unravel anything. Also you must be within 1 space of the forge.

    Unless, of course, you will come decorate my keep for me ;)

    GM'd earlier today, been cranking out materials since then.

    Made my first legitimate custom requested item, a pair of earrings with 6 LMC and 1 MR.. they're coming back for an upgrade when I finish off my skill.

    Question for the decorators.. or anyone who has the relics to burn: can you break apart a soulforge and keep only 1 tile of it & have that still function?

    It's doable with a flour mill, wondering if the same can be done with the SF and save some space. I typically craft from my entry area, the forge & anvil are right next to the wall on the other side.
     
  45. Yen Sid

    Yen Sid Guest

    I stand right next to the soulforge and can't use the bag. I am in the SA client btw... so I end having to unravel everything seperately and it makes imbuing excedingly difficult because it takes me forever to get the ingredients. Do I need a certain skill level to use it?
     
  46. I wasn't even close to being overweight, or over item count either. I was also standing right next to the forge, and even tried moving around to different sides and still got nothing. I've made several trips so far this morning to build up mats for training and haven't had any problems so I'm hoping it was just a hiccup that won't happen again...
     
  47. I have a question too. Does the SF work like a normal forge in beng able to access it from the floor below or above? I don't have room for a SF in either of my crafting areas, but I do have room on my second floor right above where my smith/tailor/bowyer/carp crafting area is. If I can access it that way that would be great. Does anyone know if this works?

  50. Sweet. That makes things a lot easier for me. What's the skill needed to make those btw?
