Imbuing

Imbuing on Karma requires the use of several key skills: Imbuing, Inscription, and Alchemy.

 

Let's start with the Imbuing skill itself. The skill is required to make the actual glyphs that contain the imbue that you wish to attach to any given weapon, armor, jewelry, clothing, talisman, shield or quiver. You need have in your possession all of the materials necessary  to make the glyph. One thing in common for all imbues, is that you need to have major runes. 

Those major runes include: Rune of Onslaught, Rune of Warding, Rune of Storms, Rune of Essence,

and Rune of Chaos. You can purchase glyph ink from the scribe npc to see which materials will be required to make the glyph.

 

The second skill required, Alchemy, is used to make runed ink. An ingredient used in making a blank glyph. You need to harvest Ink Leaf to make the runed ink. Harvesting is done by purchasing or crafting a Harvest Scythe. Harvest Scythes can be purchased from any farmer npc or crafted with 

the Tinkering skill. Use the scythe on plants and trees to gather herbs. The higher your alchemy skill,  the more herb types you will be able to harvest. One thing to note, is that the herbs that you harvest  are random. I suggest having at least GM Alchemy to harvest Ink Leaf.


The third skill required is Inscription. You will use the Runed Ink and Blank Scrolls to make a Blank  Glyph to hold the imbue. To make major runes, you will need a Transmutation Vial bought from the Inscription npc. With that, you can turn rune fragments into minor runes, then turn the minor runes

into the Major Rune of your choice.


*Major runes can aslo be looted from Champ Bosses, Peerless Bosses, Treasure Maps and SOS's negating the need to craft them.


Once you have gathered all the materials required, simply stand at a soul forge and create the imbue glyph using the glyph ink as your tool. At GM Imbuing, you will have a 50% chance to successfully craft the glyph. Your chances increase as your Imbuing skill goes up. Expect a lot of failures till you are at 120 Imbuing.
