    I came across someone holding this sword today:

    A viking sword of exceptional quality
    exceptional
    [imbued]
    hit energy area 50%
    hit lightning 50%
    swing speed increase 30%
    damage increase 70%


    Does anyone know how to accomplish such a high damage increase on a metal weapon?

    Sounds like a bug where the EX bonus on a REALLY old item wasn't recognized by the Imbuing process as a property. In 2003 (and earlier for how long?), 20% was the default exceptional bonus - it could also be a property converted over from before AoS not being recognized. I can't remember the exact era that "double exceptional" items came from.

    Actually, 50% of the damage increase was IMBUED onto the sword. The sword was a prepatch viking sword with a minimum of 20 damage increase (From T2a or Rennassiance I believe). These swords are valuable as the 20 damage increase doesn't count as a mod when imbuing.
