Can someone give me a semi-thurough explenation on how reforging works, what it costs, the conversions and stuff, and whatever else i should know about it.  I do not yet have the expansion and I am still contimplating getting it.  The reforging could be a descent sized part of my descision.

And no one just reply that i shouldn't buy it, for your assertion will fall upon deaf ears.

Oh well, for the first contact i was happy about it.... but anyways...

To reforge a item, you have to decrease an atribut (which is restriced and can´t be choosen) to increase and place a new atribute SMILEY example:

19 mage weapon AE -> reforges to -> 18 cast speed for about 2-3 platin

To me reforging sounds pretty useless, other than putting sparklies on your items.

  • Up to 40% of the value of a Source Attribute may be transferred to the value of a Destination Attribute.
  • 10% of the converted stat is lost in the conversion process.
  • You cannot select a Destination Attribute if that attribute is already present on the item.

So you can't make an uninteresting item worthwhile since you can only convert a small part of a stat to another stat, and you can't convert it to a stat that already exists, so no making int/wis/sta items into wis/sta items either.

And since EQ2 was dumbed down your char only uses one stat, so there is no use to convert into any other.

So, what's the use? Other than sparklies...

Yeah after reading about the reforging from that zam article someone linked above, it doesn't seem to be something that is that useful to me personally.  The beastlords/mercs/DYOD may still be enough to convince me to buy the expansion if a double sc weekend comes up sometime soon.... otherwise not so much.

yeah i was a little bummed out that i could trade almost anything for DPS, hate, Multi atk, Haste, ability mod, (which zerker gear has plenty of) or ability casting spd and recovery spd ( which zerkers cast and recover too fast naturally for that to even hold the slightest interest) but not at all for ability reuse spd which would be great for getting juggernaut, sneering onslaught, jeering onslaught, insolence, and other CA's buck up that could help the class hold aggro much better then it currently does very poorly. 

/not surprised
