    Say, someone have ring 1/3 2sdi 5lrc and ask you to imbue it to 10sdi 10lrc 5lmc, no rare stuff required, all imbued mods less then 80-90%. What is fair price for such request?
     
  2. That would depend on who supplies the ingredients. If the other person does, then my experience is that you do it for a tip. Right now is the time to build a clientele, so any kindnesses you can give to the customer will be remembered, and you'll be the one they go to the next time they need something done.

    common ingridients are too cheap to relay on price. 25k for dc hammer? 100 residue from it, 2k per cheap mod below 90%. Gems? same upto 2-3k. Essence? let it be 10x more, 20k per mod.

    Well, as for failures, 5x tries is max reasonable. So, for imbue such ring is like 300-500k for resources only. Skilled crafter have less failures for his profit.

    So, 500k-1m is fair?
     
  4. It all depends. What mods are you imbuing? How many? What's the difficulty level? Who is supplying the ingredients, and which ones? Does it require any rare or hard to get ingredients?

    There's just too many variables to put a flat rate on it. It's more of having a basic ballpark figure, then adjusting up or down from there accordingly. It would also depend on what shard you're on and how pricing is done there.

    If you are gonna charge that much then it will be cheaper to make your own imbuer. GM Mining/LJ, train worrier/tamer, farm gold/loot, buy gems and unravil loot and now you have all you need to make your own imbuer. This will be like any other crafter in UO, everybody will have them.

    I read a post and the poster said that they have already made over 100M from items and I am very glad I was able to lift my feet because the BS was getting deep.
