Weapons:use best weapon skill,physical reflection,hit lower deffence
Range Weapons: physical reflection,hit lower deffence
Armor: physical reflection
Shield: physical reflection

Does this mean that if I want to get 70 % hit lower defense, there is no package I can select, I just have to hope to get lucky?

That's how I'd interpret it ya... I haven't actually tried to go for 70 HLD yet honestly bc with the new changes even with 50% HLD on a weapon at least in PvP I'm hitting em 60% of the time at that point usually & if Im a ranged attacker it stays that way. I'd consider 70 HLD maybe on some sort of Nerve Striker or Frenzied WW char etc or in PvM if you've got the room.

Yea.. its for a nerve striker that wears mace and sheild. I guess I'll burn a few charges on TC and see what I get.

Ugh.. 1000 charges, best I got was a 60% HLD. Don't think I'll bother on prodo with that.

According to the spreadsheet on the first page in this thread it says you can get up to 9 regen on weapon. Do anyone know how much imbuing Weight that would take on a Crook?

I've read this entire thread backwards and forward. I really appreciate the information, but occasionally the fact that some folks are translating from another language into English leaves me confused.

Can someone please post the steps for 150 Luck with Horned kit or Copper runic?
(+Powerful)
(+Grand)
(Auspicious/Fortune)?

Thanks!

I am trying to follow the nice guide from CorwinXX's to create a Samurdin. He says "You can work around .....by adding 100% HLL to your weapon" and "Your main weapon usually have reforged HLL and imbued DI/Slayer/HML/HSL" . So my aim was to get a 100% HLL double axe the rest beeing imbued. I tried several ways with differents hammers but I'm unable to get only the HLL property (DI is already included). I got some 97% with others properties that I don't need. I have read the posts but I don't see if it's possible to get only one property. Any help ? :)

I believe to get 100% HLL the weapon has to be faster then a 3s weapon, and when you imbue ssi it drops the leech..so if you trying to get a bladed staff with 100% HLL 75% ML I would suggest getting 180 stam and ssi on jewls or armor not weapon

Use copper runic with power (4 charges per try) to get 100% HLL. It usually takes several runics (may be 6) to get one weapon.

Working, on the way....Thank you CorwinXX :)
Cazador, no SSI on the weapon, the template idea is to get it mostly from DF

the low weight property is the biggest joke that the developer has added to enhancing
That, lower requirements and durability -- they should be done away with like mage armor (where removable) and/or don't let us reforge them -- they hurt so many pieces

Is there a chart that exist that shows how much property weight each runic can roll? on normal/powerful?

Example only, DC might can roll 110, while shadow 150, copper might cap out at 220? (talking property weights)

*How much difference is a val runic mallet/hammer without and with powerful?*

First test on composite bows, ash runic, powerful, vampire.
100 bows, 50HML property 14, 50HML-40HSL + unwanted property 3, 50HML-40 HSL 2.

Will try to update that with the next ones, some time needed to get the ash runics in heartwood

I don't seem to have much luck with reforging. I used up 10 copper runics over 2 days and only got 1 Leafblade with 96 HML. I tried both Leafblades and Kamas. I got 2 Kamas with 70 HML and 2 or so Leafblades with 96 HLL. Not sure what to do with those.

As for Ash Runics, I've used 6400 boards before and didn't get an Ash Runic.

Necronom, push a game to its limits always takes time. Especially if noboly sells the needed materials on your shard or if you don't have the gps to get them. I used more than 100.000 boards to get the ash runics needed to make the 100 bows. And for over one month I try to find in shame the jewel with only SSI needed for my archer. The last time, I found a 10 SSI brace at the third session. Boring. The only solution I've found is to make these tasks from time to time and be patient :) About copper runics, I think that Corwin had given some stats somewhere, I did not keep mine and it was about 100HLL. But what you say does not seem abnormal.

Yes, I know.. It would make the game too easy as some would say. Patience is a virtue, although it isn't one of the ones in the game. Heh... 100k boards? Ugh... Yeah I want to find a ring and bracelet with 10 SSI, but so far only Cursed and not the other properties I would like. :) Can't have it all I guess... I did make a nice bow for my archer even though it doesn't have a super slayer. Unfortunately I didn't PoF it up ...

Anyone have any experimentation with reforging heartwood bows? I'm trying to make a repeater or a magical shortbow with:

spell chan -1
mage wep
dci
balanced
hit spell

I'm thinking heartwood kit, powerful, with charmed/of alchemy and exquisite of quality?
I'll burn a few hundred charges on TC and see what shakes out.

Update, can't use charmed/alchemy with heartwood, so I did equisit/quality and towering/defense.

I actually got some that were pretty close. I had a really sweet one, -15 mage, balanced, di, 35 DCI, spell channeling, but it was 70 HLA instead of hit spell.

After making that, I'd really like one on a prodo shard with HLA and one with hit spell. After about 1k charges I never did get a hit spell one, and only one of the HLA type. Reallly rare. .. might buy a butt load of kits on prodo and try it but man what a way to burn through some gold.

Changed my plan.. trying to make a -15 mage weapon bow, and hope that the other 1 or 2 properties fits with what I want to make and then imbue it up. I can get what I want with a whetstone, but its not as high of DCI or hit fireball that I wanted.

I used 360 charges of Ash Fletching kits and I didn't get a single -15 mage weapon. Using powerful, grand, inspired, exalted, acane of wizardry. Not a single one :(.

I got several -15's when using a Yew kit.

Semmerset's charts say Ash gives -15 mage weapon, can anyone confirm it works on ranged?

Has anyone been able to reforge a bladed staff with 100% HLL and 100% HML? I burned through 800+ charges of copper runics, another 200+ of bronze, and even a gold and a valorite hammer. The best I could get were 75% in each, and 93% in one property but without the other.

Shoulda tried on Test first, but like a slot machine addict, I kept telling myself, "One more, one more will get it for me."

Is there like a printable version of the table or would it be possible to have one, perhaps at the Stratics Resources Forum http://stratics.com/community/resources/ ?

Thanks !

Paste and Copy the table to your favorite editor (probably Word or Excel). You may use 'Split to columns' command with 'by width' option in Excel.
You may also use 'print selection' command in your browser.

Hmmm, in Excel, after copying the table, the "paste special" only asks me whether I want to paste as HTML, Unicode text or plain text. I see no options of any paste "split to columns" together with a "by width" option.

Do I need to paste as plain text in Excel first and AFTER this, select it within Excel and apply the "split to columns" and the option "by width" ? If so, under which Menus can they be found ?

Thanks for the help.

paste as usual
then Data -> Split

I tried it, pasted as text into the first cell and then went into Data and Split into Columns but it asks various questions while proceeding onto the various steps and in the end it comes all messed up with columns and lines somehow not matching up ....

I must be doing something wrong because it tells me that it can only split 1 column at a time (though over multiple lines). The thing is, that when I paste into the first cell, everything is in there, there is only 1 column, not multiple ones... Yet, there should be multiple columns and multiple lines....

Not really that straightforward as there is several steps to it, not merely a paste into columns....


Ok, figured it out, I needed to select "space" as the determining factor for creating the columns...
Thanks.

A few questions if I may, what does the "+" sign refer to ? Like Ash and Ash+, Copper and Copper+ and so forth...

Also, what does the property "Res/Ref" identify ?

And what about HM/HA/HLA/HSL ?
HLA should be Hit Lower Attack, HSL should be Hit Stamina Leech but I cannot find a HM or a HA .....

I assume that EP stands for Enhance Potions though I find it odd that it is for Weapons and Armor but not for jewellery ??

Elem stands for Elemental Damage ?

Eater is for Damage Eater ?

Soul I assume stands for Soul Charge though, according to UOGuide http://www.uoguide.com/Item_Property, this property only applies to Gargoyles and is only found on Artifacts. How can it then be reforged on any Shield?

CF stands for casting Focus ? If so, like for Soul Charge, according to UOGuide it only applies to Gargoyles and is only found on Artifacts (on Armor, Jewellery and Weapons).

If DUR stands for Durability, the max Durability that can come through reforging is 150 ?

Rep stands for Reactive Paralyze ? like the 2 above, again according to UOGuide it only applies for Gargoyles and only is found on artifacts on Shields but according to the Table it can be reforged to Armor, Weapons and Shields ?

Lastly, there is quite a number of item Properties missing from the table and yet existing in the game. All the properties missing from the Table can neither be imbued nor reforged or just they cannot be obtained trough reforging but they can be imbued ?
Just a few that come up my mind right away (but there are more...) are Splintering Weapon, Battle Lust, Blood Drinker, Use Best Weapon Skill, Spell Channelling, Self Repair and so on...

Thanks.

I have made my second set of 100 composite bows. This time I got 2 50HML 40HSL and 3 50HML 70HSL.
Corwin, I dont understand your "super slayer, 35 SSI, 48 HML, 36 HSL, 50 DI"
If I imbue a slayer on a 50HML 40HSL, I can add only 25SSI, and after ash enhancing I have Slayer 48HML 40HSL 35SSI 40DI (and 20 lower requirement) . I can change the mods after enhancing ?

So I keep the same rate : 2 good ones for 100 bows (400 charges). A lot of work for a set of bows !

What kind of weapon? Blood Drinker can only be crafted onto weapons that have the bleed special move. Since there are no runics for tinkering, the list get pretty short. Possible blacksmith Blood Drinker weapons can be found here - http://www.uoguide.com/Bleed_Attack

They are really rare to craft on a usable/functional weapon as there is no specific reforge pick so it must be a random roll and other (often useless) properties will be included (like luck, EP, etc,...). Good luck, you'll need it ;).

I was trying with metal armor, not bone, to get that pair. I am not sure I is possible, or if it is, it's really quite rare. The problem becomes that if you use a potent enough runic, you're going to get 3+ properties. If you use something "weak" you'll not get both maxxed.

If you can do it, you'd need to use a horned kit, and pick viscious/haste probably without powerful, but I am not sure.

I did my testing with bronze hammer on metal armor. I "only" tried 60 items, about half with and half without powerful, and I only ever got 5 HCI/8 si or 10 SI/4 HCI - and I am pretty sure those came without powerful. Powerful seemed to basically guarantee a 3rd property.

Your best bet is to just go ahead and get that 3rd property, and try to get in something you're going to imbue on the piece anyway.

I'm trying to figure out how to make a Magical Shortbow with
Spell Channeling
Balanced
Velocity
HCI 15
DI 40

I know the DI comes from my GM Bowyer + GM Arms Lore

But what mats would people use to make this thing?
