    Nope... thats crafting for ya. Im at 95.1 and its been a long boring haul. While I DO NOT think that they should make the skill any easier to gain... its still a bit mind numbing. Its funny how by the time you get the skill trained high enough to do anything with it, you dont want to have anything to do with it. LoL.

    Lucky for you I'm a nice guy and I'm going to spill the beans.

    First, make sure you are imbuing exceptional crafted weapons or armor. They increase the difficulty and that is the basis of the gain speed.

    Second, imbue the item with luck to 90. Once you succeed re-imbue it with dispel and you will see the difficulty in the 60 range and only use 1 of each mat. So instead of repeating a higher level mat and spending more you spend less on repeat imbues.

    Glad to be of help. Another trick you can do is to make the items you are going to imbue with a dull copper or shadow hammer increasing the difficulty even more.

    Also, make sure to eat the 115 imbuing scroll. You get better gains the farther apart your max is from your current.

    I'm imbuing random loot pickup up along my travels, but it's very slow due to needing to puzzle-through how to min-max the best gains for the least gems on each piece. Still, it can be an alternative to grinding if you want to train a little on the side.

    Do wands, they are very consistent around 85-high 90's for what you need to do (imbue once with hit area then a second time with resist).
