    I had to go looking back into posts from February to grab this, and pull it into a new post.

    Imbuing will only raise a resist to the following values. This is REGARDLESS of the value before imbuing, as it replaces exceptional (including Arms Lore) and material bonuses, as well as any runic bonuses.

    Italic items are cloth, and start with 24 resists. They cannot be enhanced, but can be imbued.
    Most armor has base 15 resists, without bonuses. Most studded & bone have 16 (there's 1 or 2 Samurai Empire Studded pieces that have only 15).
    See the special note for Dragonscale after the table.

    Note that weighting won't allow someone to actually add +15 to all 5 resists - these numbers are for a case by case examination, not a real maximum. One can end up with higher numbers than these on runic-crafted armor (in resists not altered with imbuing), and imbued armor that was enhanced successfully after the imbuing process (crafted by normal tools or by runics).

    Human & Elf (and Orc NPC) types

    Thanks to Risso for the Gargoyle information...

    *Dragon scale is Special. It treats the base as 3/3/3/3/3 with a +10 bonus to one resist, and a -3 to another. These alterations are also considered properties, so you will lose that +10 to fire if you try to imbue fire resist onto a red dragonscale piece. On the other hand, that resist reduced to 0 can be brought back up to 18 (15+3) with imbuing.

    OK, then all we need is someone to chime in with stone armor.

    Care to craft and check the Samurai Empire Studded Leather pieces and see which ones give Studded leather resists (16 total resists) and which are bugged to give only 15 resists (like leather)?

    Studded Suneate 16 resist
    Studded Haidate 16 resist
    Studded Hiro Sode 16 resist
    Studded Mempo 15 resist (3 energy resist instead of 4)
    Studded Do 16 resist

    Looks like the mempo is bugged.

    Anything else, just let me know.

    Hi,

    I am working on an excel-based imbue calculator. Does anyone know how the success rate works for imbuing? How would I go about asking UO if they could give it to us?

    Its kind of the last thing I would like to add...

    Thanks.

    In one of the updates, they said the skill focus for Imbuing was 60 (As opposed to 50 for most skills, and 40 for a few others).

    This means that that for every 0.6 points the skill increases, the chance of success would go up 1.0%. this is effectively a 0.166666% (repeating) increase every 0.1 skill, or 0.5% every 0.3 skill.

    This is one of the variables you will need for an imbuing success formula.

    You'll still need the baseline data for how intensity factors in, to make use of this, but it's a start.

    16 phys - 17 fire - 17 cold - 17 pois - 18 energy
