    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!!!

    i hear you, i got this as loot with 20 ssi..
    i went ahead and imbued up 40 stam leech, lower defense, and mana leech and tried to enhance it.

    this was the only bow so far that has made it.

    of course adding the 10 ssi dropped the mana leech to 33 :(

    its not the greatest bow, but its a general mob bow that i can use to work spawn or something.

    Aside from making very high end items with special mats, imbuing is going to be great for finishing off a suit. Took ninj off my stealth archer and added stealing, leaving some holes in my suit. took a ring with 10 hci and some di already on it and made (my imbuing was 104ish at the time):

    12 stealing
    10 hci
    22 di
    15 energy resist

    brought stealing to 120 and my suit back to 69-70 for all stats. and I only used mats I already had from casual exploring.
