    I just finished imbuing 120. YAY!!!!!! Should I change races from human to gargoyle? I read where you get a 10% bonus on success chance with a gargoyle. I was wondering if that is worth changing races?

    Gargs save relic fragments imbuing high end pieces when one cannot begin imbuing clean pieces and have a better chance of unraveling high end loot to relic fragments. However, Never validated this myself in practice through testing the two races. The answer depends on your perception of resource cost and abundance.

    Its a bit of a pain to not be able to wear a customers suit to validate it before delivery.

    I have a human with 120 Imbuing that can use the Queens Forge. Before I imbue an item to get you a percentage, is there anything else your looking for? The highest I have a record of now at the Queens Forge is 555 weight which was 15.6%. At 500 it is 25%, which means it goes down about 3% for each 18 increase in weight.

    The imbuing bonus is has diminishing returns.. starts out higher, then gets down to like 1-2% bonus around last few imbues.

    You can get slightly more mats from unraveling.. like.. maybe 10-20% more and a small chance for a bump up in if it's an essense or frag

    Yes, Gargolyes get a bonus on imbuing. If it is worth it or not is really a personal choice and how much you plan on imbuing. Also, if you are anal enough like me that when your chance drops below 100% that you will go to the queens forge. But for me, the additional bonuses granted by Gargolyes and using the Queen's Forge are worth the effort.

    Also, it's not exactly a +10%, it's a bonus based off the current success chance. Example, if a human has a 22.5% success, then it would be 10% of that success, making the Gargoyles chance like 22.5 + 2.3 = 24.8%
