[Imbuing] Of Gargoyle and Queen's Soulforge...

    Hi all,

    from my understanding, being a gargoyle and using the Queen's Soulforge both increases your chances of successfully imbuing items.

    So, if Im already at 100% success chance at imbuing as a human, would there be a reason for me to change race, as well as the need to use the Queen's forge? If there is a reduction in ingreds used in the latter, then of course its worth it, but from what I can see, there isn't.

    However, I do know that UNRAVELING makes a difference in that case. What about solely from an imbuing point of view?

    Reason Im asking is cos my crafter is human, and has 0 loyalty points. And as I approach the higher imbuing skill level, I can see that the success chances are actually pretty good already.

    Insights, pse? Thanks!

    Kras, it's NOT POSSIBLE to be 100% at imbuing on items that are even remotely close to the full 500% total intensity level. In fact, most of the time, when trying to imbue items with a 5th property, putting it into the 490-500% total range, I'm usually below 30% chance with my human with 120 Skill, at the Queen's forge.

    At 120 skill, you'll be over 100% success on the first and second properties, but it goes quickly downhill when you add properties 3, 4, & 5.

    Lol! Indeed! I feel so dumb now. Didnt realise it gets progressively harder with higher total item weight.

    Disregard this thread, nothing to see here!
