Thank you Rowan and L4L. I got it figured out. (I was trying to do it at the blacksmith) I have some really powerful weapons that don't have any slots. I'll be looking for some to see if the slotted ones do any better. A lot of weapons to choose from in this game. I have a really cool fae blade that I got from one of the factions, House of Ballads I think it was.
yes L4L this game is growing on me. It will be fine once I get past the learning curve.
I still don't understand why the manuals don't explain the details of how rather than just saying what. Especially when they are such a pain to read.
