    Is there a level minimum for all these extra enhancements(except for +1 to +3)? My wizard is level 6 and I can't get her to add any enhancements

    Well, there are requirements like having, ummmm, 'shocking grasp' for shock weapons etc. So if you don't know the spells you don't get to make the gear.

    There was a request for the exact requirements for crafting gear to be posted, either here or at Atari - do a thread search and you are bound to turn something up :)

    Epic Level Handbook: Except when otherwise stated, epic magic weapons follow the rules for nonepic magic weapons. There is no limit to an epic magic weapon’s enhancement bonus, to the market price modifier of an epic magic weapon special ability, or to the total of an epic magic weapon’s enhancement bonus and market price modifier.

    I'm almost positive you have to be level 7 to add shock. All the enhancements have some level requirement. For most (all?) of the burst effects and for holy, it's 10.

    Here is an exerpt of the relevent file in everyones game, that deals with crafting prerequisites.



    {100}{}//WE_PLUS_1

    {107}{}//WE_GHOST_TOUCH,

    {120}{"Sunholy blight" C7 Aevil}//WE_UNHOLY,
    {121}{"Sorders wrath" C7 Alawful}//WE_LAWFUL,
    {122}{"Schaos hammer" C7 Achaotic}//WE_CHAOTIC,
    {123}{}//AE_PLUS_1,
    {124}{}//AE_PLUS_2,
    {125}{}//AE_PLUS_3,
    {126}{}//AE_LIGHT_FORTIFICATION,

    {136}{}//SE_BLINDING,
    {137}{}//SE_LIGHT_FORTIFICATION,
    {138}{}//SE_ARROW_DEFLECTION,
    {139}{}//SE_ANIMATED,
    {140}{}//SE_SPELL_RESISTANCE_13,


    Explanation: {100} - number of enchantment (not important right now)
    "O" - means this spell OR that spell
    'Swhatever' - spell name
    C# - the number is the character level you must have achieved to craft this enchantment
    Asomething - alignment prerequisite
    //WE_SOMETHING - name of weapon enchantment
    //AE_SOMETHING - name of armour enchantment
    //SE_SOMETHING - name of shield enchantment

    Not all of them work properly, most dont work at all, but there you go.

    Well, this can't be entirely right, because you can do flaming burst at level 10, though this file says it's level 12 (which is what it's supposed to be in 3.5 pnp). Also, this seems to say you can do holy at level 7, but for me it's always been level 10 (you get the requisite spell, holy smite, at level 9, but can't craft holy things for another level yet).

    I'm running just patch 2 and temple.zip.

    maybe it was fixed in the co8 patch, then (not too sure about that) but that is what is listed in my item_creation.mes, yours must be different.

    Well, my .mes is certainly different. No mention of level requirements or anything at all like the excerpt from above anywhere.

    Makes sense that they would at least change flaming burst back to 12, since that's where it's supposed to be, and with the level cap removed now you can actually get there.

    Maybe, in the original release, since holy is even better than the bursts (with the possible exception of the cleavers), they just thought it should wait until level 10 too. :)
