[Blacksmithing] Reforging Weapons, Shadow & Copper Clarification Needed

Hey all, I think I might be dealing with information overload lately. I am trying to make a couple sets of weapons and from what I've read in the reforging step I want to do the following:

For 100% Specific Damage Area : Shadow Runic, Powerful > Grand > Inspired > Exquisite (4 charges)

For 100% HML/HLL : Copper Runic > Grand Artifice > Inspired Artifice > Exalted Artifice > Vampiric/of the Embrace

However, I've also read in another recent thread here that for 100% HML/HLL I should be doing Copper Runic > Powerful > Grand > Inspired > Exquisite / of Quality

just like the Shadow for 100% damage area.

Am I understanding all of this correctly? And in the last two instances, what is the difference between the two? They both take 4 charges from the copper runic.

I've noticed tonight doing the Copper > Exalted > Vampiric that on double axes im only getting max 81% leech, but with bladed staffs I've gotten up to 100%. Is this just chance or some kind of cap based on weapon?


Thanks a lot.

Hit Leech Effects are capped based on the swing speed of the weapon, for instance if you imbue ssi onto your 100% it will drop. That being said double axes do qualify for the 100% hll/hml, you must just have had some bad luck, ive gone stretches of 2-3 hammers without a single 100% before. I use and have always used the Copper Runic > Powerful > Grand > Inspired > Exquisite / of Quality method which costs 4 charges per use.

If you want 100 fire or cold damage, use dull copper. When you get a 70% cold or fire weapon, enhance it to 100%. I only use copper for 100% energy weapons.

I have always used the Vampiric name choice when making my weapons - I can confirm that it works to get 100% ll or 100% ml on double axes
