Reforging 100% ele. Exceptional vs npc bought

Hi .. I'm just trying to figure it out all the crafting things :D
I'm crafting 100% ele weapons for my warrior. Maybe the question is really stupid, but anyway :D

what's the difference between using an exceptional crafted weapon and a npc one ? I had some 100% straight from the npc, and this way I don't have to use the whetstone (that is a pita to grind) to remove DI ?

Exceptional has more imbuing weight. Aka you can add more mods/intensity.

-50% imbuing weight for non Exceptional. Only useful for 2 handed weapons because you can still fit a lot for 550% total weight.

Thx :) Actually I'm doing double axes ... for example :

I just got a 10% ph / 90% fire. I imbued 4 slots ( slayer, HML, HSL, HLD) and I can't imbue more. If I enhance with bronze, I should have the 100% fire. Will this free a slot (the one occupied by 10% physical) so I can add another property with imbueing ?

Also, I read somewhere that the enhancement is done after imbueing .. is this right or it's better to enhance right after the reforge to avoid loosing milions if things go wrong ?

Negative, it will not add a slot. Just fyi remember to PoF before imbuing.

Enhancing armor after all imbuing is done helps the end result. The enhancement adds to the weight of the piece so you should do that last. If you enhance before imbuing armor you lose some weight that can be used for stats.

weapons can be enhanced before imbuing because elemental damage doesn’t add a mod or anything to imbue weight.

Last I checked, there were still some items out there that, if by some miracle you find one that was elemental damage as its only property, you could still reforge it. But that was a couple years ago. Somewhere around my house I have a looted 100% elemental item that I reforged, if I didn't give it to someone.

If you are reforging for 100 fire do first without tool because the success rate is like 90 percent or more if you use a ash hammer with a good trinket.
Also with double axes I use NPC 550 weight I just short the stam leech a lil from max at end and it works out fine saving me millions.
