    Can anyone confirm that enchanting bows with Luna gems on them will

    a) yield the crit buff rumor has it connected with them (Somethig about night aqnd deadly or so)

    b) that it works

    Because if someone with rather high skill in MC and Enchanting does not score this enchantment on an bow with Moon gems (amethyst ) on them i become suspicious...... Bows is not so super bug free.....

    No. Special effects from enchanting do not appear on bows. This is intentional.

    If you socket Lunaism gems in a bow then you get +20 moon attunement.

    If i enchant melee weapons with lunaism gems i get the proc? yes no? Having the criticals would be nice so i do not fall behind totally compared to other skill trees.
    Can not ignite bows/arrows, no poison, I mean i am used to be on the short leash as archer but portolarium takes that to new levels

    No, you will get the attunement but not the proc.

    first of what skills in the moon tree work with ranged?
    Do you want arrows to add meteor hits? Tooo much would be overkill.
    Possibly a boost to Fire Flies? Tooo much would be overkill.

    Both of these add to the bow hits already, and the attunement is enough of a boost.

    So not really broken just nothing to really add.

    Honestly if you added anything in the moon tree to the pool it would actually take away from wanted properties.

    Well first read descriptions, fireflies adds 5% chance on crits so making it an weapon delivered thing instead a spell would liven up the scene (or make it a proc and a spell but they overwrite )

    The usefullness of moon is very limited, I am thinking about changing to water anyways, with icefield you can help your group much more than with the maybe spells moon has (I mean really, I do dex damage...noone knows how much dex an big critter has... I have yet to see an chance in fights using dex damaging spells visa not, and how much has an dragon for example (and does it really help with how hard it is to NOT hit an dragon sized target)

    Moon could be a sweet subterfuge add on or the magical counterpart but it is very hard to tell

    a) what it is doing because for that i need to rip open files and hunt for numbers

    b) that it does anything at all, with an ice mage you can turn whole fights in your favour, with moon ? It is so secret no one knows!

    It's not broken, it's intentional.

    I can enchant chest pieces and jewellery with an effect that is switched of, that is very broken for me, If you decide to do without you do not leave half of it behind.....
    Sota is rumored to be out of pre alpha by now (some even claim it went "live" ) but that is kinda still concept stage...
    We are talking her about lots effo0rt in game to make things that are useless (now i can trash an exeptional hardened leather armor because i have one slot filled with useless magic junk, WAY TO GO!.

    I hope you see that it does not really improve mood if one is lead on to something broken (snipping of part of the spells and leaving enchants behind IS broken, you do not lead on people to waste days in producing something now pretty useless.

    No. If you enchant those, you get a chance of gem-specific enchantments. If you select them, they work. If you enchant gem socketed bows, the gem effects will not come up as possible enchantments. You will still get the attunement fro the gems, though.
