    I found a stash of some old, exceptional weapons.

    So something fun like this is possible.

    6-7 mods total (7 after enhancing with a wood type)
    70-80 Damage Increase. (80 by adding 50 via imbuing and then enhancing with yew for another 10dmg inc plus 5hci)

    I have a 4x standard bows, 1x heavy, and 1x crossbow available.
    1x Axe, 1x War Hammer.

    I can do a custom imbue for you, PM me with the mods you want imbued, and what wood to enhance it with. And an offer of how much you'll pay for it all.

    Compared to normal, you get an extra property to imbue (5 total) and starting weight of 0 (out of 500 total), plus free 20% Damage Increase.

    Not something you normally find on siege.
    So I'd like a small pile of gold for it : )

    Did they change imbuing to 'add' instead of 'replace' damage increase?

    Uhh ok. Wow first time I've been accused. You guys need to relax.
    I made those ones on GL ages ago.
    I posted them to show you "the possibilities".
    I've only made one weapon on siege so far. Screenshot below.

    And some unedited/cropped desktop screenshots. Take a look at the time, and at the shard.

    And would you like to view the warfork ingame?

    Nope. But it stacks in this instance, rather than replacing the original 20%.
    And enhancing with wood also stacks ontop of that as well.

    seing the 40 ssi and 20 lower reqs on that first one i'd say runic crafted with heartwood runic, imbued, then ash enhanced?

    Dibbs on the heavy crossbow though, alas I haven't been on much lately due to being out of town, so I have no idea what my resources look like at the moment, but I'm probably the only heavy crossbow user on the shard though so if you could pm me the base stats it's starting with i'll think about it for a bit once I'm a bit more settled in and make an offer :D

    First of all the title of the bow clearly states: " A Bow of exceptional Quality"

    That makes it what one calls a old dbl exceptional bow. Crafted by a GM fletcher back in the day. pre 2003 time frame.

    Enhancing any bow with ash gives:
    10% Swing Speed Increase, and 20% Lower Requirements.

    The base stats on the Heavy Xbow are 20 Damage Inc. Thats it.
    You pick the 5 mods (total weight of 500) to be added via imbuing.

    And pick the wood/property to be used to enhance it after.
    I'm using a Forge tool with charges, to ensure 100% success on enhancing.

    Ahh, ok, never been much of a crafter, didn't know what time frame they changed that in (Actually, never really crafted at all until I came to siege, I had to here because I couldn't stay equipped on my own)

    Here's what I'm using now, I'm open for any ideas on making one with a higher damage output.

    Old items w/ 20 DI and exceptional can have extra properties and/or exceed imbue property caps? Most of the older items I have are pre-trammel, think I tried to imbue one but I got a msg saying I couldn't imbue it.

    So that war fork is pre 2003? Cause i dont remember older weps like that having names with them. Thought they just said "an exceptionally crafted weapon" exceptional.

    I was talking about the bow in my first screenshot. I am no expert, but I was under the impression the old double exceptional items where from that time frame.

    GM named exceptional items with 20 damage increase also often are able to be imbued. I've found some items that only allow 4 properties (they count the 20 damage increase as one) to be added but have no starting weight (i.e. 0/500).

    Just a weird bug or unintended leftover from old items.
    Kind of like us being able to imbue arties for a while.


    Anyhow. The bow below is on my vendor at Yew gate on Siege for 2mil. Lets see if it sells!

    I would be very interested in having a better bow than I now have. I am not so keen on area spells, they tend to get me guard whacked.
    Give me a few details of what you could put together in regular bows, composites and heavies.

    Thanks.

    No. I did know him briefly though, back when SX "visited" LS from Catskills, before heading off to Atlantic.

    I go by the name Meat in vent.

    I never really played Atlantic, just LS (The Cabal, *S*, Rev, UOF) and GL (BC).
    My main characters were Death Inc, Meat Popsicle, Imanewbie, Angry Zergling.
