    I know it s not the first post about this but i did really worked hard to figure out the meaning of the changes in reforging.
    At a time where new loot may allow hunters to find the desired pieces of equipment why the hell nerving the reforging the way you did Devs without even telling us ?
    For those who are not familiar with reforging it was meant to give crafter a bit of control on the mods they may get on a crafted item at the cost of several charges from various runics.

    The reforging was really useful to get either a mod above imbuing caps or a mod that cant be imbued.
    Taking luck as an exemple (but i could take HCI as well or many other mods) you could with runic charges to get pieces with 150 luck. It was already not an easy task but that was doable...

    Since the change it seems a real waste of runics to run for such things.
    I burnt 275 charges from horned kits and 145 charges from gold hammer to try getting those 150 luck pieces like before....
    Not only i didnt get a single one (best was 140 on only 3 pieces) but also got useless items as the number of mods is varying a weird way to say the least... Horned kit from 2 to 4 mods and of course, none those i may need.
    All in all i surely have to thank the Devs first to have made the reforging a real joke but second, to not even told us about those changes. It really shows the care they have about us players...

    Thanks again, and surely will focus on my hunters now and leave the crafters doing the basic things or resting... whatever comes first in mind.

    Well if your looking for a single max stat a gold hammer is NOT the way to go. Try DC, SH, or CH.

    DC, Shadow and Copper cannot reforge 150 Luck. Even before the stealth nerf to reforging with the recent Publish.

    Thats incorrect. I have boxes full of 150 pieces from all 3. Ill use bronze rarely and anything above that goes towards making killer shields.

    When was this change noticed? Was it with the introduction of global magic loot? I ask this because I wonder if this change might be an unintended consequence of changing the properties of loot, and not necessarily some kind of intentional, secret change. Since loot and reforging seem to use a similar method of generating magical items, and considering that monsters such as the unbound energy vortex have suffered a noticeable drop in loot quality, it seems like this is probably more of an unintended consequence. Of course I could also have no idea what I'm talking about, but it's just a wild guess.

    I don't think everything in this game is a conspiracy


    (but I have noticed a lot of things working against me!)

    Don't get me wrong, reforging max property on an item HAS become harder. It's not impossible though. As far as mob drops like the uevs, I too have seen a dramatic drop in quality. I wonder if it has to do with the removal of several of the negative properties and the reduction of the number of negative properties that can be found on a piece. Only makes sense considering how closely tied the quality of an item was to negative properties.

    Not even sure why people would waste money reforging when they can go kill stuff for amazing pieces. The new loot system should eventually kill reforging with runic tools all together. It is much easier to go farm monsters and collect all the good pieces to make your suits.

    Fortunately it seems that the new loot has un-complicated crafting a little. Now it's back to the semi-basics of get armor, imbue armor, done. Instead of the craft armor out of this exact material, craft it with kits by reforging, imbue it, use forged tool on it, add refinements to it, hope you didn't screw up and have to do it all over again.

    You must've used more than just the "Powerful Reforge" option then, like Powerful Reforge+Structural Reforging+Fundamental Reforging. I had reforged 200-300 pieces of armor each with DC, Shadow, Copper, Bronze then Gold Runic on TC with Powerful Reforging when helping a friend determine what Runic he needed to reforge 150 Luck. Didn't get the 150 Luck until i used Gold Runic.

    Its a lot of the same answers here, as in the other thread - so in my mind its better to keep the same conversation in one thread.

    I concur and this has been my experience as well.

    Others have claimed that's it still possible and that's it's simply the RNG.

    Shennagins by the powers that be methinks.:frown2:
