War bows have a higher base damage and are thus better as you can get more damage from a crafted war bow.

This build and patch has been super fun. I picked up median first time in years and first started with a sorceress but she began to struggle at the beginning of destruction. I had not read guides, nor did I remember much about the mod.

Then I picked up this build, and boy did it make a difference! Am now able to farm Dest TA quite reliably, yet slowly. Haven't gotten the whole mid-game gear scraped together yet.

I actually managed to find sacred rare marrow staff and began shrine crafting it, and also have a quite nice crafted long battle bow for my merc. However, I was wondering what would happen if I find a sacred long war bow of any kind, make it normal and then imbue at Charsi to convert it rare? Because, for the love of god, that damn thing just does not drop, along with Goetia plate.
Would it be usable for shrine crafting? Ilvl high enough?

Also: I found Idol of Rygnar, a SSU mask, which has +200% enhanced weapon dmg and some dex. It boosted the damage of my merc far beyond my abandon crafted sacred helm, but lacks defence. Haven't seen a better option for my merc yet. Sorry, I don't know how to link items from database.

In the menu above the box where you write in, there's a sword. Click there. Then a tab will open, where you can search for an item. Click on it and it's put in your text box.

Yes, you can use catalys of destruction and Charsi to make an item rare. It doesn't affect your item level.

Defense is a bit of a hassle for the merc sadly. I guess you could respec to a lazy nec for a safer and faster TA run. That doesn't require your merc. It only requires you to have lots of life after each kill which you can get from

Thank you! And that lazy nec build looks ridiculous, in a good way. Might have to give it a go some time.

A good point to note here is that (unless the data has been changed for Median compared to vanila LoD) Charsi will give back the item of ilvl which equals the formula:
ilvl item from Imbue = Char ilvl + 4. Cap is set on 99ilvl regardless, so theoritacly in median a Char of lvl 95 and 120 will receive same ilvl 99 item.

The point is that you can't make new character, level it to lvl 8 (that's the requirement of being able to complete Charsi's quest, unless in Median it is different) and then imbue your item given from higher lvl char and get ilvl item of 99 back from the smith. In this case item would have ilvl of 12 (maximum amount of affixes for ilvl 12 item: Item level 1-30: 40% chance of 1 affix and 20% chance each of 2, 3 or 4 affixes - Taken from Median wiki).

If anyone is seeking additional info about Imbue, little guide (its based on LoD) here.

Rathma's blessing is mainly used for the 50% minion resist. With that + quov Tsin charm + brenmtown upgrade, you're at 80% minion resist, which is above the cap, so you don't have to worry about getting that anywhere else on gear
