Imbuing is a tradeskill allowing to add and adjust wearable item properties. These properties include having faster cast speeds, better parrying or increased mana regeneration. Items can have multiple imbued properties. Those that practice the art of imbuing are called Artificers.
To imbue an item, there are three main ingredients that are needed: a magical ingredient, a common gem, and a high intensity ingredient. Once you have collected all these materials, you must use the special soul forge. Once standing beside the soul forge, you can use your imbuing skill to imbue an item.
Unlike other skills, there is no merchant for practicing imbuing. To increase Imbuing, you must use the skill by unraveling magic items for their magical ingredients or imbuing items with magical properties. At lower levels, there is a 25% gain if you pass the skill check but at higher levels, there is only a 10% gain and a lower chance to pass the skill check.
Imbuing has a hard cap of 100, whether it is in the primary slot or tradeskill slot. There are no magic items that temporarily or permanently increase imbuing.
To imbue an item, you require three specific resources and a soul forge. The soul forge is currently located at Uppsala, Lost Realms (note: when Ter Mur is ready, the soul forge will be moved to its proper location at the Royal City).
The amounts of each material goes up with each level. For example, an item requiring a level 1 imbuement may only require 1 of each item whereas an item that is 14/15 may require 10 of each item.
Imbuing requires having three specific resources.
Magical ingredients only come from one source - magical items. To gain the magical ingredient, you must unravel the item and collect the magical residue left over. Magically unraveling items always destroys the item in the process. The magical residue collected depends on the quality of the magic item unraveled.
The higher your skill, the higher chance of a better magical ingredient. There are three kinds of magical residue (highest listed first):
- Magical Residue
- Enchanted Essence
- Relic Fragment
Magic Weapons, Armor
Not Accepted Items
Items with Silver, Hit Spells, Skills Advancements have a +1 value.
Items that are higher than Rugged and Power have a +2 value.
These values are added up and determined which magical ingredient will be extracted from the item.
- an entire container can be unraveled... we are not responsible for lost items as it will unravel every magic item it finds in that container.
- owned items will not be unraveled.
Common gems collected from loot and other sources, such as tourmalines, emeralds, sapphires or diamonds.
High Intensity Ingredient
These ingredients come from special bosses or rare monsters, special areas or are harvested from special plants.
All items have a imbued maximum property weight. This means you are unable to imbue items all their way to their maximum values if you have other imbued properties on them. Each item has a maximum value and a imbuing weight. The maximum property intensity limit is 300%.
For example: a ring has a lower mana cost with 7 levels out of 15. The total weight for lower mana cost is 110. It also has a hit chance increase of 5 out of 12. The total weight for hit chance increase is 130.
lower mana cost weight: 7/15 x 110 = 51 (rounded)
high chance increase: 5/12 x 130 = 54 (rounded)
the total imbuing weight is 51 + 54 = 105%.
All values are rounded for each line. They are not calculated with any decimals.
You may continue imbuing the item with various properties until you reach the limit of 300%.
Similar to Blacksmithy requiring a forge, you must stand next to a Soul Forge to imbue or unravel items.
Although you can maximize the value on every item that allows the imbued property, there is a useful cap for many properties. There is no benefit to going over the cap.
For example, hit chance increase has a maximum value of 12 points on each item. You can imbue hit chance increase on jewelry and weapons meaning you can put it on 4 pieces of jewelry (ring, earrings, bracelet, necklace) and your weapon for a total of 60 points. However, there is a useful cap of 45 points. Any points above 45 will not increase your hit chance thus is wasted.
Items that can be imbued
Most items can be imbued. However, special items, such as Treasures of Tokuno, cannot be imbued as they already contain special properties.

Location of High Intensity Reagents
The Mini-Champ area on Valhalla Lost is not the same place as on Ter Mur. Instead, it is located off an abandoned mansion with exits leading to separate areas with our custom interpretations of the themes. This is due to not having access to Ter Mur when Imbuing was put in.

The Outyards (or in norse mythology, Utgardar), is an ancient temple hidden away under a mountain located on Lost Realms. Inside, there are doorways (and some hidden entries) leading to areas where competitions are held. Enter the area, face the challenge and you may be rewarded with imbuing materials dropped from the monsters inside. There are a total of 8 challenges.
The mini-boss challenge is similar to the champion spawns but on a smaller scale. When you enter an area, the challenge will begin. Kill the rounds of monsters until the boss appears. Once the boss has been killed, the area goes on a cooldown for 30 minutes. If you leave the area before the boss is killed, the next person to enter will resume where the rounds left off. Imbuing materials can drop from a variety of the monsters during the round. The essences have a chance to drop from the main boss.
