Repairing zon bow with eld+chippie

If I repair a damaged/cracked/etc amazon bow with the cube (eld+chippie), the automod (staffmod?) will be rerolled, and it may be 1,2, or 3, right?

I'm interested in making a 3 socket, +3 skill Matriarchal Bow.
 
Re: Repairing zon bow with eld+chippie

I think so... you can always test it when you find the bow, since it's not like it's expensive.
 
Re: Repairing zon bow with eld+chippie

The ilvl gets reset to 1 so if you do get +3 skills and larzuk socket it, you should get 3 sockets
 
Re: Repairing zon bow with eld+chippie

Can you even get more than +1 on an ilvl 1 bow?

Does it work like automods on Pally shields? (they use the affix level, so if it´s a high qlvl shield, you can still get the good stuff)

That's exactly my question.

I'll just try it since I have a few, but what if I get +1 skills? It wouldn't mean that I can't get +3, so I was hoping that someone would know. I've got one cracked stag bow, and one low quality matriarchal bow. I'll just try, and hope to get a conclusive answer.

I've got 3 3os +3 low level bows and 1 such high level. But I'd like to make a Melody and an Edge in high level bows.

Maybe you can only get +1 skills this way, but there was a 1/9 chance of both getting +1 skill even if it was random.

I think it should work in this way, but to be honest I've never tested it with bows, so I'm not sure about it.



 
Re: Repairing zon bow with eld+chippie

@SnickerSnack: Even if a bow has the chance to spawn a +3 automod, this page says the chances are not 1/3 for each outcome, but 50%-33%-17%, respectively.

And even if the automod is indeed tied to alvl rather than ilvl, Matriarchal Bows are too low in qlvl (only 53, if the AS is correct) to spawn with +3 bow skills at ilvl 1. An ilvl 1 Matriarchal Bow is a "low level" item, so it has alvl=53-53/2=27. Too low even for +2 skills (needs to be 40+).

In fact, not even a Grand Matron Bow (qlvl 78) can get +3 skills at ilvl 1, only +2 skills at most. It´s a "high level" item, so the alvl=2*78-99=57. It needs to be at least 60 for +3 bow skills.

jiansonz: thanks for pointing that out. I guess I'll continue repairing bows.
 
Re: Repairing zon bow with eld+chippie

Not sure if it's just more bad luck... or...

I thought the discussion was about if a certain ilvl is required to have a chance to spawn more than +1, or if it works like the Pally shields, and the qlvl can help it up. But, as I said before, even if it is the latter, Matriarchal Bows have too low qlvl for even +2 to be possible.

Right, we need to try it with a few GMBs. But, even then, if +3 isn't possible this way, then I'd probably rather just run hell cows a few dozen times and hope to get what I want that way.
