One of the things you learn from playing UO for a long time is that working on one skill alone is not very efficient, although it is a legitimate choice of play style, and perhaps if you belong to a guild it serves a purpose. Imbuing is a present example. You can make the correct weighted items and gain in imbuing quickly, but it is somewhat inefficient because in the end you end up just gaining in one skill, and spend money without income. During the initiial period of SA I haven't been powergaming imbuing, thus my imbuing is still around 95. However, through farming items using my throwing char I have gained the following: 110 Throwing, still rising 120 anat 110 resist GM tactics GM Healing GM focus 70 Chiv 2m+ gp 5000+ residue 400+ essence 200+ top end imbuing ingredients 200+ quest items several new AF interesting loot (like mage armor, nightsight, mana regen earrings) How do you think those stack up against powergaming 120 imbuing?
