    OK. I made me a snazzy woodland gorget.

    12/18/17/2/17

    Imbued with Fire, Cold and energy resists.

    The 18 and 17s are the shown caps for imbuing. Can I now enhance this with frostwood and bump by cold resist to 25? Or will it always fail?

    Thanks,
    Q

    You can try to enhance - the question is will you succeed (as it's a fairly low success chance).

    But there IS a chance of success....that's what I was really asking.

    The stuff to imbue this with is fairly cheap....so I could burn 100 or so gorgets to get the one I want. Which is no biggie.

    yes, what gets expensive is pofing them all up to 255 before trying to enhance them.
    i made some nice armor and broke them all.. then i decided to not pof them up and got a few nice pieces but only have low durability.. they will last awhile but not a long time :(

    I got bags of pof. Was going to do a merchant on them and then the market plumeted. Might as well use some of them.

    The market for PoF is back now thanks to imbuing. Check around your shard but they went from roughly 40K per before SA to 100K+ after SA. Those are average prices I've seen on Atlantic. So you may want to be a little more conservative with your PoF stash. Just a thought.
