    Howdy! I just noticed, if I enhance a 100% physical bow with any special wood, the bow becomes that color. BUT, if I enhance a bow with 100% elemental damage, the bow stays the color it originally was. So, if I have a 100% fire bow, but enhance it with yew wood, the bow stays orange. My question is, if I'm shopping for a bow that has 100% cold damage, but was enhanced with frostwood, the bow would still be blue, but nowhere would it say that it was already enhanced? I might be a bit disappointed to find that out after I purchased said bow and wanted to enhance it after imbuing.

    The bow (if enhanced with Frost wood) would also (very likely) have a weird damage increase amount ending in a 2% (because Frostwood gives 40% cold but also 12% DMI). So if you saw a bow on a vendor with 100% cold and 52% Damage Increase then yes it's likely been enhanced already. Likewise if you see a bow on a vendor that doesn't say any type of wood but has SSI on it but also 20% lower requirements then you know Ash wood has already been used.

    If you look for a bow that is "of quality" then there is a very strong chance it is a natural 100% element vs being enhanced already.
