[Imbuing] Quick question: unraveling bokuto for enchanted essence?

    I remember a while back I unravel bokuto made of ash wood to get essence. It doesn't seem to work now. Am I missing something? Thanks!

    I just did a little experiment. Gm carpentry gm armslore made 3 bokutos from ash and 3 from bloodwood, all were exceptional. Legendary Gargoyle imbuer at the queens forge, I got 7 essence from the ash and 13 essence from the bloodwood.

    Another experiment same characters I made 3 oak bokutos all exceptional and 3 yew and 3 heartwoood. The oak yeilded 13 essence, yew 15 essence and the heartwood only 6 because apparently not enough magical properties on one bokuto. I made some that weren't exceptional and they seemed to yeild essence also. So I guess over all if you want to do this to make essence it seems to work.

    This is wierd. I also have gm carp, arms lore and made bokutos with ash and get 40% DI, 10% ssi, 20% lower requirement. When my imbuer (120 imbuing, gm item id) unravel them at Queen forge, he only got residues. Same thing happened to bloodwood, oak and yew bokutos.
    I even tried to use soul stone to remove imbuing skill and put it back, didn't help. Put arms lore on the imbuer, didn't help.
    I am clueless!

    lol that is OK. Thanks for taking time to test and reply.

    Dev must have nerfed the unraveling wooden items for essences.
