    Hello fellow crafters. I'm curious to hear if any of you have had success in reforging hit spells on ranged weapons recently. I logged onto test this past week and did a pretty large sample size for throwing weapons, and also tried with some bows but I had no luck with Vicious/Slaughter. Test Center is down at the moment as I was going to test some more with other weapons, so I figured I'd ask here as well before I update my previous bug report on Boomerangs, or create a new thread to include this potentially larger issue.

    From what I'm seeingVicious/Slaughter appears to just add HCI, and any other mod is a random pick like always. If you have the time or already are aware of this please let me know so I can submit this again, or maybe better yet learn that I've just been incredibly unlucky... *Sigh* Heh.

    While this reply is definitely delayed because it took some time for Test Center to come back up and for me to have the free time, I wanted to say thanks for the response Storm, that's exactly what I ended up doing.

    After further testing on TC1 it does appear that Ranged weapons are primarily rolling HCI from Vicious/Slaughter. I say primarily because out of the hundreds of weapons made I actually got one bow that had 70 damage increase and 3 hit point increase only. Strangely enough it was only 1 out of 2 from all the melee and ranged weapons combined that ever rolled a damage increase bonus. There was still no hit spells on ranged weapons, but crafting melee weapons this time confirmed it is possible from Vicious/Slaughter in that specific category. It should be noted if you intend to do so for melee weapons it is quite difficult and be prepared to spend a lot of charges, or hope to get really lucky.

    I think I'll be adding onto my previous bug report now, even though at the same time I'm still kind of hoping I'm wrong.
