Is it Craft --> Reforge --> POF --> Imbue OR Craft --> POF --> Imbue --> Reforge ?

The reason that I am asking, is that, if I reforge BEFORE Imbuing, I end up with less imbuing weight left and often I have trouble to then imbue what I would need on an item.

It is like reforging "uses up" some imbuing weight on the process thus leaving less room for a subsequent imbuing.

So, I imagined, perhaps it is the other way around ?

I need to FIRST imbue and only after reforge the item ?

Also, is there a difference in the process whether crafting armor or a weapon ?

Thanks !!

Reforge, POF, Imbue, Enhance, Refine ;)


e.g. Luck
Reforge 150
POF 255
Imbue resistances, stats, etc.
Enhance with gold or spined leather to 190 luck

Since Reforging has to be done on an EMPTY item (not bonuses other than Exceptional)., and Imbuing prevents powdering, It HAS to be done

Craft, Reforge, Powder, Imbue, Enhance (since enhancing increases property weight, it's done last). Then, Refine if you want to.

Thank you for the kind answers.

The "Refine" that you both mention is Refinements ?

If so, that only applies to Armor (resistances), NOT to Weapons, right ?

I also have another question about crafting 100% Elemental Weapons....

Often, Reforging only produces 70% or 90% Elemental Weapons.... are these to be considered as "failures" and runic charges wasted OR is it possible to bring that 70% or 90% (never seen an 80%) Elemental all the way to 100% at a next step (which one) ? How ?

What does Enhancing do to Weapons or Armor and how is that done ?

Thanks !

Enhance step...

A 60-90% Fire with the rest in Physical can be brought to 100% with Bronze.
An 80-90% Cold with the rest in physical van be brought to 100% with Shadow Iron
A 70% Cold with the Rest in Physical can be brought to 100% with Agapite
An 80-90% Energy weapon can be brought to 100% with copper or Verite.

There's no way to improve to 100% poison, but you can get 70% poison to 80 poison 20 energy with copper.

Thank you @Basara for the kind clarification !

Do you also know what Runics should be used to Enhance Elemental Damage all the way to 100% for BOWCRAFTING and for CARPENTRY ?

Is there a Chart or Table somewhere where one could look this up ?

Thanks !

I would try in TC1 and before you do anything in your shard, you Will have a lot of runics charges for trying reforging and see how it Works.
