I have my doubts about the imbuement system.
I really dont much care for it i have discovered.
Sure a money sink is fine and all.. But the ridiculous cost vs the efficiency doesnt quite make it very appealing..
Only items worth slapping enchants on are actually saving non-breaking stuff... And that is if you find something worth imbuing said items with..

But we will see how it progresses

After grinding for 4+ hours today I have come to the conclusion that imbued items do not exists among centaurs, gont tower guards, lizardmen, bullywugs, and the guards of kalaman.

booooring!

Yeah actually my exotic came from the Gont Tower Guards, and most of my others come from everything you just listed.

Just makes it that much better when you got an amazing piece of equipment after going through the 15 items of crap.
It is not.
After gambling in D2, item will stay with you forever. Here maximum some reboots.

Amberlee, I'm kind on the same fence with you for this. Yes its a great system for people who have the time to make the ridiculous amount of money to partake in the "luxury" that is the imbuement system. (Don't get me wrong Gorb, you guys did a bang up job) but for the random grinder who will possible break a good piece of equipment in a day, spending 1000 plats on a usuable enchant won't be worth it (unless it makes it unbreakable). Even then, 1000 plats for X amount a days seems steep when the value of looting certain areas is more time consuming then worth it. (personal opinion there).

Now if you happen to find exotics and don't mind paying 100platinum coins (Which I think is to high for indentification, even if you do figure out how to identify without paying, 100 plats needs to be addressed to something more reasonable like 25p) unless it makes the item last for the whole armageddon, once it breaks, your out 1000plats even if it gave great damage.

Weapons granted maybe different as certain weapons don't break, but unfortunately for me, I don't use weapons and as far as I know it all the armours worth a damn break.

But all in all I think its a great addition to genesis for adding another "angle" but unfortunately in its current state and the limited knowledge I have on the whole process as I haven't seen it from start to finish I can only speculate its "to much doe for that hoe".

As amberlee stated my idea already (Thief!) I won't be putting 1000 plat random imbuement on anything unless its a saving unbreakable or extremely durable item.
