    I've made plenty of -15 mage weapon bokutos, but I'm really struggling with the bows.

    I went through ~300+ Ash Fletching kit charges today with no luck.

    I've tried:

    Powerful with 1 named property (4 charges)
    Non Powerful - 1 named property (3 charges)

    I'm using arcane of wizardry

    I can get -20 mage weapon to roll easily, but not a single -15 mage wep. Not even an unusable one with other properties, just no -15.

    Is Ash the right tool for fletcher mage weps? I burned 4 yew kits and got a plethora of -15 weps using similar reforging, but they had junk properties I couldn't use.

    Anyone have experience with this?

    I was going to say its based on max runic intensity of 75% for ash, but you're successful with saws. Don't know...maybe the true intensity max for saws and fletching tools is different.

    I was thinking maybe the ranged intensity is different than melee.

    It is incredibly frustrating.

    The only one I was able to make was:

    -15 mage wep
    3 HPR
    30 SSI

    Made with Yew Fletch Kit, powerful, arcane of wizardry package.

    I burned quite a few yew, heartwood, etc.

    I ended up finding a non-exceptional composite bow with -15 mage on a vendor for a couple hundred thousand gold.

    I imbued/enhanced to:
    -15 mage
    spell chan -1
    balanced
    24 life leech
    2 hpr
    10 dci

    Enchant weapon for 60 fireball... it serves the immediate purpose.

    What I really want is an exceptional repeater with -15... ughhhhhh

    Ouch... The one I got on TC was within 7 or 8.. Getting an exceptional was the tedious part..

    Well, total ASH charges spent was about 1500 to get this. I must just be unlucky. Not counting all the Yew and Heartwood charges.

    End result is the bow I wanted. Full disclosure, I do have enchant weapon on in this pic but its still pretty sweet.
