[Imbuing] 106 and taking longer than taming

    Im currently at 106 and using the method
    - imbue 16 jingasas with rfd 11%
    Then imbue LRC so success is around 50%
    Usually do this 20 times (some success and some fail) then move on to next piece ... then unravel !

    This is taking forever (first imbuing the helmets with RFD then swiching over to LRC) and the gains seem to be far slower than taming, not to mention the cost in gems... o_O

    Is there an easier way? maybe just imbue with one gem type? i tried to use items with dull copper runic but the chances to imbue were all ofer the place depending on the mods added by the hammer...

    Just looking for advice...

    1. Do LUCK ONCE to 89 or 90 first,
    2. then RPD ONCE to get it to around 50%.
    3. THEN Imbue LRC 1, 2 or 3% 18 times - and 18 times means 18 successes; failures don't count. You're wasting the materials you put into the Luck and RPD if you don't get in all 18 of the LRC successes.

    Somehow, you missed the first step, that of the luck imbue. you shouldn't have to use high amounts of RPD at any point in the process (maybe up into the 50-60% intensity range near the end as you approach 120). Note also you need to be a human/elf using a crafted forge, otherwise the Gargoyle and forge bonuses will make your target numbers higher, and require more gems.

    The object is to get the last 18 imbues to always be 1 gem, every time, and those three types use the cheapest two gem types.

    It only took me about 150-200 jingasa to get to 120 from 90.

    all 1 gem type would just be more expensive, from running the NPC costs higher.
