    Is there any possible way to create a HCI/DCI shield? I've seen a Bloodwood shield that has HCI/DCI tagged imbued. This got me wondering how it was created.

    - HCI/DCI shields no longer spawn outside of the Museum of Vesper replica.
    - Not suppose to be able to imbue alot of pre-stygian shields.

    Can HCI Shield be created by runic hammers, or runic saw? And then its imbued?

    If it was an old shield with HCI that hadn't been enhanced yet, I believe you can enhance it now and then imbue it.

    I have a bunch of shields with HCI but unfortunately I enhanced them before SA and can't imbue them now.

    You can't imbue or enhance HCI to shields.
    Material Bonuses
    "**** Other equippable items crafted from Heartwood also have one random property from the following list: Luck 40, Hit Point Regeneration 2, Lower Requirements 20, Spell Channeling, Luck 10"

    I was lucky though and my HCI FC 1 imbued DCI RPD shield enhanced with spell channeling.

    if you find a normal materialed shield you can imbue and enhance them, in any order you like.

    if shield was bloodwood before SA you cannot imbue it.

    Kind of off topic...

    I have a bunch of HCI/DCI/RPD shields that have yet to be enhanced or imbued. What I'd like to do is sell them but I've no idea what any of them are worth. Does anyone know of a pricing guide? Or if this link:

    Shield and Armor Pricing Guide - Ultima Online at MMORPG.com

    which offers pricing per property, is up-to-date or close enough to today's pricing to be used as a viable guide?

    I'm not sure if the shields are worth enhancing due to the high chances of catastrophically failing. Or would imbuing prior to enhancing save it from that terrible fate?

    Thanks for any ideas and answers!!

    Bella - if the shields have +10 HCI or greater, Imbuers will buy, especially the wood ones. Peeps with the new Enhance Tool will blow a charge or two to add HPR2 (Bloodwood) or Heartwood random mods... as for pricing, toss it out on General Chat during Peak time.
