encumbrance problems (in General)

miteke [Superheros] June 27 2010 8:14 AM EDT

After forging my ELB a little past the NW ENC limit, my PR jumped from 97 to 600+. Disenchanting back down did not help. Does anyone know a way to fix it so the PR is sane again other than throwing away the weapon?

Did you try un-equipping and the putting it back on?

did you forge the + and disenchant the x?

plus adds pr, while x does not, this may have nothing to do with enc

Nov - post title says ENC, post body says PR.

When I equip An Elven Long Bow [6x11] (+4), the PR jumps from 97 to 645. This happened when I accidentally blacksmithed it a little above the 100K limit then disenchanted back down. Even though I went back to the exact same stats, the PR bonus was over-the-top. Prior to messing with it (with the exact same stats), the PR was 97 with the ELB (same stats). After enchanting and then disenchanting (to the same original stats), the PR bonus became crazy.

+4 should give more than 97 PR I think

AdminNightStrike June 28 2010 3:24 PM EDT

There's no 100k limit. Encumbrance is not PR.

forget the ENC nonsense - you're right - that would have nothing to do with PR. I must have blacksmithed some + without realizing it. I was assuming that I left that alone, but I see if I get rid of all the + the PR goes back to normal. I guess I am a bit surprised that the tiny advantage of +4 would cost so much PR.

I still see a problem though. If I equip A Composite Bow [4x9] (+9) the PR is not increased even a tiny bit. After seeing this, I'm not convinced I ever DID touch the +. I still think there is something bogus going on here.

The Elbow's + and the + on a composite bow add PR at different rates, simply because of the difference in weapon quality between them.
So comparing the added PR from a composite bow and an ELB won't achieve anything.

AdminShade June 29 2010 10:33 AM EDT

the added PR is a function (or should be) of the NW of the + so for what that matters, both should be the same in principle.

Also, I am pretty darn sure that the weapon, at +4, was not originally adding to my PR. After forging the X too high it started adding PR, even after disenchanting the X. I can't prove this is what happened, but I think it did. I COULD have messed with the +, but I really don't think I did.
