Most players on Retribution set 120 imbuing before they try it out and post their comments. But this is a hard skill that you can't power-game because every recipe needs a special ingredient. You can unravel loot up to about 29 skill then you have to imbue things to gain. Everything needs either a rare gem or a peerless ingredient. Here are the cheapest recipes I found: Area Cold: Magical Residue, Diamond, Dark Sapphire Dispel: Magical Residue, Amber , Blight The most expensive recipes are skill bonuses costing a relic fragment, Star Sapphire, and Eye of Travesty. Imagine working poisoning or lockpicking but it costs you 50K for every attempt. Or use GGS and take 3 years to reach 120 imbuing.
