[Imbuing] This Imbuing chart confuses me...

    The chart pasted below from the Imbuing guide on Stratics at the link below...

    Does this mean you can never Imbue the 5th property on an item? It looks like you always have 0% chance on Property 5, no matter your skill, race, or soul forge used.

    It can't mean that... can it?

    i believe that the chart means that its impossible to imbue a fifth assuming that all 4 previous imbues were done at 100% intensity. not that you cannot add a fifth mod no matter what.

    The key part of that is getting 100% intensity, not the actual imbue itself.

    Each item has a maximum amount of intensity it can hold - so if it's, say, 450, you can have 4 mods at 100% intensity, and the 5th would only be able to be 50% through normal imbuing - it *IS* possible to exceed this, with enhancing, but it can be a risky and expensive proposition.
