Armor Refinements Timing and Artifacts

Zara

Hi, I have three specific questions on Armor Refinements.

1. Does the timing matter? That is, can I do it ANYTIME I want? Before reforging? After reforging? Before imbuing? After imbuing? Before PoF? After PoF?

2. Can I do it as much as I want? Say I refine a piece of armor for resists. 1 month later, I change my mind. Can I take it off by doing the reverse? Then 2 more months down, change it again? All on the same piece of armor.

3. Can I do artifacts? Like Blackthorn artifacts or Doom artifacts? Or just crafted and looted items?

1. I'd do after reforging
2. No idea.
3. Yes, on artifacts. I did my tinker legs.
woah, really? Wow! That's one of my items! I asked but actually assumed no and wasn't going to even bother. Thank you for telling me! So I can get max refinement even Blackthorn helm and tinker legs!

Since it's actually possible, do you know offhand the dci penalty if I did max refinements? And to reach max refinement, do you know if I need to reach all 5 resists on 5 pieces of armor....or since I can do it all, I could use the 6th armor piece and get max from doing just 4 per piece?

It’s been a while but I believe I recall applying a deflecting invulnerability refinement to something only to reverse it using 2 reinforced invulnerability refinements.

The first one undid the deflecting refinement then the second added the reinforced refinements.

Uhh, I dunno. I'd suggest going to Test Center and trying it. Easy way to see if you can do exactly what you want to do.
