    I think you enhance with Heartwood and hope for the HCI property.

    I haven't tried wood saws - but I get my dci with powerful reforging and shadow hammers- according to semmersets tables, oak should be able to get 5.

    Someone with runic wood tool experience might be able to confirm- else it appears your can enhance per the last post :)

    Well... it has been a while since I made my suit like that. But from what I remember you start with a HUGE pile of gold... then from the runic you can only select the prefix (I think it was vicious - but unsure of which type tool allowed that selection - sadly I can't log in to look at the suit to confirm). Then you start crafting and wait for the HCI to hit randomly, then you check that piece to see if the other mods are useful or not. This will lead to a huge pile of armor you will never use. Once you are finally blessed by the rng with the full suit you like, you invest in the forged metal of artifact and enhance. The hci from reforging stacks with the enhancing....

    It's oak saws, although with reforging seemingly to have gotten a slight nerf, getting 5% hit chance via reforging might be more difficult. Ash saws would be the next best thing, but you'd have to get Vicious/slaughter randomly, by just going grand reforging and hope it picks that as a prefix/suffix.

    Reforging for +5 hci, would allow you to enhance for +10 hci (with heartwood), surely that's what you were looking for.

    That's what you do AFTER reforging 5 HCI. If you are then lucky with the RNG and heartwood enhance you then have a part with 10 HCI.

    I think this is the problem...

    Since the changes to Runics (intended or otherwise) I don't believe semmersets tables are currently accurate (conjecture on my part). Shame given all the hard work that went in to them (maybe they still are but there is an air of confusion regarding runics across the board).

    People are trying to reforge properties exactly how they have in the past and aren't able to get the same results. Then we get post here on stratics "what happend to enter reforge here" and "How do I reforge (enter here) it worked in the past".

    I'm not sure how many more post we need to see about reforging to realize something has changed.

    I don't think you can get 5 HCI with Oak Runic anymore. Maybe you still can...

    You used to be able to reforge 5 HCI with less than 50 attempts. If it is still possible I'll venture to guess it's going to take 200-300 attempts.

    No Joy.

    This is what I do. Reforge using oak runic and then enhance with heartwood while praying for 10 HCI.
