    Is it possible to imbue the rings and bracelets which occasionally spawn with SSI on them ?

    If so, what is the CAP that is possible to max raise the SSI value that one finds occasionally to spawn on jewellery ?

    Thanks.

    You can only imbue other mods. You can't imbue SSI nor can you bump up any amount the jewel may have already.

    It is confusing though...... if SSI is not imbuable on jewellery pieces, then why does it occasionally spawn on rings and bracelets ? There is even a tinker craftable ring that has a chance to come with SSI on it but then it is not imbuable ? Go figure.........

    Yep I agree its a bit confusing. It's a desirable mod on jewellery because you cant imbue it. You can craft a turquoise ring that has a chance to come with 5SSI but it will also have other mods. Sometimes useless ones. These can be imbued but you can't altar the SSI.

    Stamina, Mana regen are other mods on jewellery that can't be crafted or imbued either. Loot only.

    I enjoy the variety of properties available only on loot or Reforging, which are not Imbuable. I find that it adds purpose to all three systems. If we could imbue all the properties found on loot and Reforging, than it would be fairly stale (just like before there were revamped dungeons).

    I strongly suggest not crafting Turquoise Rings. You will quickly find that they consume too many resources, just to craft a decent ring. The ring is not guaranteed to have the SSI property, it is simply a chance. The tinker magic jewelry (http://www.uoguide.com/Crafted_Jewelry) has been disappointing since it came out with ML. The jewelry can be easily outclassed by Lesser Artifact (and above jewelry) from the revamped dungeons. The non-unique properties are usually less than 100% intensity. Save the 50% EP from the Ecru Citrine Ring, the properties on the magical jewelry are not worth it.

    Stayin Alive,

    How does one calculate the imbuing weight of a jewel carrying any of these modifiers which cannoy be imbued ?

    I checked a calculator but they do not even list these modifiers for rings or bracelets and therefore it becomes not possible to calculate what is the imbuing potential of rings or bracelets carrying SSI, MR or Stamina bonus.

    My spreadsheet has ssi with a weight of 1.1 and a max of 5.

    So 5 ssi is 18 and 10 ssi is 35.

    MR there is a weight of 1.0 and a max of 2. So a mr4 ring would be 200 property weight.
