I made a new char when imbuing came out. I finished him today. 120 imbuing 100 myst 100 magery 100 eval 100 focus 100 med 100 random (I move resist, carp etc from soulstones) He's not bad for a crafting char. Then, I trot out and become Illustrious in about 3 hours so I could use the Queen's Soulforge. It might have been 4 hours I went to about 11k Queen points. A lot of us use really high-end armor. I didn't honestly think I was going to be able to improve any of it. I can't really even normally improve it by buying things because the game makes certain types of armor. When you really get involved in putting together really high-end suits of armor you always fall short in the same exact places. Basically, its like the rng the game just crafts the stuff a certain way even with val hammers. I had a ring on one of my mage suits. 1 fc 3 fcr 14 lrc 10 cold 11 discord. Its a very nice ring, but this is a mage not a bard. I checked the suit and found I only needed 9 lrc and 7 cold. soooo Here's what I did. I got 1 fc 3 fcr from the box of them I've collected over the years. They were pretty much useless til right now. I added 7 LMC ooo got it the first time. 9 LRC the third or fourth time 7 cold the third or fourth time ended up with 1 FC 3 FCR 7 LMC 9 LRC 7 Cold It doesn't look all that great til you put it with the rest of my armor, but then it works perfectly. WOOHOO!!!
