D2 Infusion System

I posted this in the "say anything" thread, but I thought this topic might warrant it's own topic.

Here is how I've come to understand the "not-so-clear" infusion system:

Weapon 1: 265 no mod

Weapon 2: 266 no mod

Weapon 3: 265 w/ +5 mod = 270

If you want a higher power on Weapon 1, the only way to do that is to infuse Weapon 2 resulting in a 266. This is because the infusion system does NOT take the +5 mods into account when determining the power level. In other words, the BASE power level for Weapons 1 and 3 are the same in regards to the infusion system (265) - thus no upgrade.

Also, using the above example, you can infuse Weapon 2 into Weapon 3 and come out with a 271 weapon. So, in other words, when it seems like you are not getting upgrades by getting lower power gear, the game is actually giving you a way to slowly increase your power. I can confirm this works.

Finally, you can infuse Legendary items with Exotics with what I assume is no limit. However, keep in mind Exotics come with +5 mods, so your infusion will be 5 points lower than the Exotic IF the weapon do not have a +5 mod. As an example, I infused my 295 Mida Multi-tool (it's ok, I'll get another...lol) into a 265 Legendary scout without a +5 mod and it brought the weapon up to 290. Now, I'm assuming had the scout I infused the Mida into had a +5 mod, it would have been a 295. 

Anyway, hope this helps...

Thank you. The real roadblocks seemed to be 260 and 275. Once you get over those humps there are big jumps again. Im not entirely sure, I believe purples have a chance to drop 10 higher than your current level and exotics up to 15 higher. At least that has been my experience so far. Blues confuse me though. Im 280 right now and blues are dropping at 277. Maybe the weapon mod effect you mentioned? Other times they seem to drop just one higher than your current level.
