The Imbue Reward

Hi everyone

Been looking at this reward and thinking that the only things worth doing are:

1) If you desperately need an item then go for it
2) Otherwise, do a Diadem as I believe they get a good bonus on the mods possible.

Anyone got any other suggestions as to what you use the Imbue reward for?

Items that get a +skill automod (Orbs, high Claws, Barb/Druid helms, Necro heads, Staves, Wands, Sceptres) will always get at least one +skill automod, and possibly more, so have the potential to turn a useless item into a great one. Not a good chance but a chance nonetheless :)

Apart from a diadem or two I have been imbuing only ethereal crystal swords and dimensional blades. This is because it is then possible to upgrade those swords to indestructible phase blades, which is as good as a free zod! :xgift:

Best one I made so far was 280% ed or so, with some other semi-nice mods. I'm waiting for a 350%+ one, hopefully with some IAS or dual leech...

However, I recommend that you don't bother doing this because it may drive the price of ethereal crystal swords up.

doesnt matter ,they are common as a pebble, even if they do go up in price, they wont go up more than gems or crafting runes

Well, not quite always.. the chances for +skills are normally:

10% chance of 3 skills
20% chance of 2 skills
40% chance of 1 skill
30% chance of nothing

Imbuing, the ilvl (clvl+4) gets added to the roll.. so if you are level 26+, then you are guaranteed to get at least 1 +skill. If you are level 86+ you are guaranteed to get 3! :)

Ethereal Javelins and Throwing weapons are also a good bet, with the possibilty of a replenish mod. 400ed replenish javs would be quite nice.
So far ive imbued a set of ethereal stygian pilum that got 345ed+replenish.
