You can create magic items based on spells you cannot cast. You must take the appropriate Item Creation Feat and then make a Use magic device check vs. DC 15 + Spell level for
Arcane spells or DC 25 + Spell level for Divine spells.
If the check succeeds, the warlock can create the item as if he had cast the required spell. If it fails, he cannot complete the item. He does not expend the XP or gold cost for making the item; his process is simply slowed. He cannot retry this use magic device check for this spell until he gains a new level.
- Imbue Item is part of the MotB expansion pack.
- This feat still requires that the Warlock take the Craft Magical Arms and Armor or Craft Wondrous Item feats in order to be able to craft items. He can do so as of patch 1.12.
- In SoZ crafting, a Warlock without Imbue Item may still use the Craft Magical Arms and Armor feat, by simply using the recipes for adding AC bonus or enhancing weapons. Since these recipes are not associated with any spells in SoZ, the Warlock does not need the Imbue Item feat.
