Just an FYI, I worked up imbuing to 100 on a newbie Gargoyle character. At 100 I was imbuing an exceptional plate suneate with 13 rpd and I believe 3lrc. When I unraveled the suneate after nine lrc attempts I was getting an enchanted essence. I then soul stoned the skill over to its permenant character, an elf who will later be turned into a gargoyle. Continuing the skill as an elf (after eating a 120 imbuing) I went along with imbuing the suneates. However, when I unraveled the suneate after 9 attemps I got magical residue instead of enchanted essence. When I was finally imbuing the suneate with 13 rpd and 6lrc (I believe it was six) I started getting enchanted essences from unraveling. So...it would seem that gargoyles can obtain the next level ingredient from unraveling on slightly less modded items. Has anyone else noticed this?
