    if you think it can let me know which color wood..please

    This an invasion weapon? The damage and swing speed are great. Too bad there's no hit spell.

    The only thing enhancing is going to do is add swing speed, damage increase, or chance up the damage type. Considering that the ssi and di are pretty awesome already, I wouldn't risk enhancing. If I were gonna risk altering it, I'd try to imbue it with a hit spell. That'd be awesome. :)

    imbueing??, i will have to look into it since i been gone from uo since 2004. Buddy went overseas to korea for 3 year tour and said the last time he was there is was so laggy playing uo from there he didnt want to keep the account. he still has over a year of prepaid gameplay so i took over and i feel like im learning all over again.

    Imbuing actually hasn't been released yet, hehe. It is a skill associated with the release of Stygian Abyss. My advice, keep an "imbuing" box to store items like this for when the skill is released.

    That is a invasion drop, and can neither be enhanced nor imbued when SA comes out.

    Can you post a link to where you found that out please? I just checked the Imbuing FAQ in the SA Forum and didn't see anything of the sort. I doubt the invasion weapons count as artifacts, since I have enhanced some before.

    Since when?

    Currently the only restruction on imbueing is that it cannot be made of an enchanced metal.

    As I am not in Beta - and couldn't comment if I was - the following is my opinion, and not based on fact. Until the final version of SA is released, everyting having to do with SA imbuing will be merely conjecture...

    My understanding is that any "artifact" quality item cannot be imbued, and they specifically mentioned invasion weapons in the 300+ post ing about Imbuing. I reread through Post#141 to cite specific example, then stopped:) Was time to slay a Shadowlord!

    My comment was based on the bow in question being an "event" item, which the Invasion was considered - no? It is obviously an Invasion bow, for it has the same exact three mods every Invasion bow has: HDL, SSI, DI. I have a dozen of the same, regular bows, xbows, and hvy xbows. They all have 25-29 HDL, 35-50% SSI, and 40-55 DI, and all came form the recent Invasion.

    re Barry: I too have enhanced Invasion bows, but they were the low end ones, the 30% ssi I enhanced to 40% SSi, but the "General" drops have mods beyond the "norm" loot maximums. You cannot enhance an item beyond its normal loot drop maximum, in this case the bow has 51% (50 max DI on loot drop) and ssi is 45% (max SSI 30% on normal loot drops). The HDL is below the 50% max, however there is no way to enhance HDL anyway...

    re Nu: The item does not haveto read "yew" or "valorite" IF it is an Event item or artifact, it is "internally" labelled "made from special Material"...

    This is Posting #1 of the aforementioned 300+, and the Official UO reponse. :

    "Q: What about certain event items? Will they be able to be imbuded?

    Example
    Tongue of the Beast (Shield with mods)
    Void of Umbra (Sword with no mods)

    A: I would guess not, but I don't know with 100% certainty. Most likely, we have flagged them internally as cannot be recycled and made out of special material (like all our artifacts and the like). If that's the case, then no, they cannot be imbued."

    I completely agree. Until SA is released, there is nothing concrete with the skill.

    I just tried enhancing an invasion bow with 35% SSI and 30%DI with Yew and Ash. Both times I tried I got a message "already enhanced with special materials". I also tried enhancing a better SSI, DI invasion bow and got the same message both times.

    To the OP, it would not be worth enhancing, because you cannot enhance it.
