Dummy-Proof Guide to Upgrading your EQ !

Go down

need advice on strengthening!

Post by DRUMstrings on Thu 15 May - 16:11

hi guys, can anyone make a good comprehensive guide on strengthening equips? i can't seem to find one anywhere!

for egs. we cant fuse over strengthened eq right? cos it will go back to 100%? can we forge over a 110% eq then? does it make a difference if we forge then str, OR str then forge? price same for all? is there a chance of failure above a certain level or strenthening? what happens then? does our eq disappear? O.O

i dont see the point of forging anything other than weapons (esp crus swords) and maybe chaos eqs. the other items all have very little difference, even if 10% is added to the numerical values, yes?

thank you in advance! guide plsssss Very Happy

Dummy-Proof Guide to Upgrading your EQ !

Post by MooMooMoo on Thu 15 May - 21:51

You'll start off with a 100% effetiveness. Every subsequent level will add 2% of additional stats boost. The highest you can upgrade your weapon is 110%.

1.) Gather both a Strengthening Scroll and a Strengthening Crystal.
2.) Head to the Shaitan black smith Smithy, 902,3495
3.) Talk to him and choose upgrade apparel.
4.) Drag your scroll into the top slot.
5.) Drag your equip into the left slot.
6.) Drag your catalyst into the right slot.
7.) At the bottom now click "upgrade apparel."
8.) Confirm selection for designated price.

If you pass, u'll see a little firework going off =D
If you fail, you see a sad faced bubble =(

Here is an example:

lvl 10 Tri-blader Shirt + Str Scroll + Str Catalyst + 1.21 million gold = lvl 11 Tri-blader Shirt




Upgrade Prices:

lvl 11 = 1.21 mill
lvl 12 = 1.44 mill
lvl 13 = 1.69 mill
lvl 14 = 1.96 mill
lvl 15 = 2.25 mill

The price increases with each successive level and there is a chance of failure at each level. The lucky upgrade to lvl 15 with no failures while others fail almost every time. It is estimated that the sum of the money spent to go from lvl 10-15 with no failures is 8.55 mill. Considering failures, expect to spend nearly 30 mill. Good Luck!!!

==========================================================================================
Question and Answer Section

Q1. Can we fuse over a strengthened piece of EQ?
A1: Yes you can provided you use a Fusion Catalyst. It will remain at the lv of strengthening before the fuse.

Q2: Does it make a difference if we forge then strengthen, OR strengthen then forge?
A2: Nope it doesnt matter. But i'll suggest you finish your forging 1st since strengthening only give u up to 10% of the stats of the EQ.

Q3: Is there a chance of failure above a certain level or strengthening?
A3: The failure/success rates are the same regardless of levels. (based on experience)

Q4: What will happen to our EQ if we fail at any stage of strengthening?
A4: You'll just lose your gold and strengthening catalyst. Everything else wil remain status quo. (includes gems and the lvl of strengthening already done on your EQ)

Q5: What are the advantages of strengthening your EQ?
A5: You'll get 2% at every successful level. Meaning?

Example: Upon completion of lv 15 of the strengthening (i.e your EQ is now at 110% effetiveness)
Total stats gained from UPGRADED EQ = The base stats of your EQ + every other forged gem in your EQ + an additional 10% of the TOTAL stats from the base of the EQ and every other forged gem in your EQ.

Do note: Should the bonus after upgrading be a decimal, then the decimal will be rounded DOWN to the nearest whole number. Eq, 1.9 bonus str will be rounded down to 1 str.

Will post more when there are questions =)

first strenghtening may be successfull coz i didnt failed yet, but in 2nd and through, there is a certain experience of failure, you will lose your money, the crystal and the catalyst, EQ's still remain.

I have armor with Lv3 GoC, this will give 15 con but i notice that after strenghtening to 110%, i got 2 more con. But im not sure about that.

But the sure thing is, when u have 110%, it will give you 10% plus of all the stats.

cheers...
