  1. Post on PEN Witch's Earring in General

    By KFC, posted
    So I got PEN Witch's Earring today. Thats pretty cool right?
    The trick is to rage enhance while recording apparently At least this time I didnt screw my gear heaps like last time.. Cause its already messed up :')
  2. Seems likely the RNG are here to stay, why don't we ease it up a bit? I heard people mainly quit because of the horrible RNG in the late stage upgrades. So the following might be the game changer.
    Instead of building fs from scratch, what if there's an item drop/crafted that can instantly increase fs to 10 or 20. So each char in a family can only use it once, either 10 or 20. People can still build on top of the fs obtained from the item. 
    I'll be focusing more on item drop. So for 10fs, the drop rate should be the same as ancient relic crystal shard. This can be obtained from mobs or fishing as well. For 20fs, drop rates should be slightly lower and can only be obtained from certain life skills. I call the item Black Spirit Relic(for 10fs) and Ancient Black Spirit Relic (for 20fs). Perhaps turn them into shards. Collect 3 to get the full item.
    Any feedback please?
  3. Personally i'm driven absolutely crazy by the idea of losing hundreds of millions off of failing accessories. The cron stones are an awesome idea and a helpful tool, but I'm not a fan of the valks cry and don't like cash driven success rate. 
    The system i would like to see implemented is one where you can use 2 pri items to make a duo and that would significantly increase the % chance of success. I feel that the more you invest in the item going into the enhancement the more likely it should be to succeed. This would be an excellent counterpart to the people that don't want to spend hard earned cash on extra valks cry FS offering an in game cash alternative. Between that system and cron stones it would make accessory enhancement RNG a bit less terrifying and maybe keep people from blowing their brains out when failing tri ogres. 
    Let me know what you guys think.

    hello guys,
    This was requested several times in private messages  so i did a Alexmac Enhancement guide 
    If you want a proper TET enchant system it requires some preparation. You can yolo but you can expect big rips and griding around in PRI 10 dura gear al lthe time lol. Remember this is my method, there are plenty of ways to do this but i had good results with it.
    - lvl 10 or less char with negative karma to downgrade +15 gear to +14 (kill wild horses for negative karma)
    - as many character slots as you can afford (so you can do failstacks on all)
    - min 3 pieces Reblath +14 gear (Velia Blacksmith)
    - 2 green weapons like steel dagger or whatever you like also +14 (use something that have good quantity at the market so you can repair easily)
    - 2 grunil pieces +14 
    - full set grunil PRI +  (i use grunil because its good for all alts and if they go TET it actually sells)
    (the extra +14 pieces is so you dont need to downgrade gear all the time)
    Once you get all this, before any TET  Enhancement session get:
    - 1000 armor blackstones
    - 500 weapon blackstones
    - 300 or more memory frags (depending if you can use artisans memory or not you might need more) - EDIT: DO NOT BUT Memory frags directly from the market, its easier but youre wasting money. You can do books, ancients or relics in 5 man group or if you dont want to waste time  you can  solo Books or ancient scrolls (dont solo relics). 
    max prices to buy the scrolls if you dont want to grind them (more than this its almost better to buy memories directly from market):Relics - max 850Books - max 950Ancients - max 1300- 100 concentrated armor stones
    - 50 concentrated weapon stones
    Its alot but this will Push TETs and recover from fails easily.
    Fail Stack method (aproximate):
    0 to 10 fs - use a reblath
    0 to 15 fs - use second reblath
    15 to 20 fs - use a green weapon or armor piece
    20 to 26 fs - attempt PRI to DUO grunils  (or any other gear) (2 attempt´s)
    26 to 32 fs - attempt PRI to DUO boss gear or boss weapon  (2 attempt´s)
    32 fs to 45 fs - attempt DUO to TRI boss or boss weapon gear
    45 fs to 55 fs -attempt TRI to TET Grunil gear ( if you get TET sell it and make another one)
    55 fs to 100 fs - attempt only TRI to TET boss or weapon gear 
    100+ fs save for PEN clicks or TET + accessories
    EDIT: i bought a red nose and a cheap Bhegs as extra piece to fail stack to get TRI fs, but you can risk green gear. Problem is it goes TRI and TET easily so at the end you spend a lot of money fail stacking anyway . But you guys can keep the Grunil rotation , if it goes DUO you use it to get more fs the next round, if it goes TRI you use for the TET clicks
    TIP for sucess:
    I believe that when you fail some enchants it increases the odds on the next ones. So when i want to enchant a TRI to TET boss gear or weapon i usually have all boss set at TRI and extra TRI grunils or other pieces.
    I get to the 45 fs and start attempting the grunils, then the boss gear one by one. Usually gets me a TET around 60 fs, its rng.
    Accessories enchanting is completely different from the boss gear and weapons.
    Fails stacks for acc:
    17 fs  PRI on blue acc
    20 fs PRI on rare acc
    28 fs DUO on blue acc
    35 fs DUO rare acc
    35 fs TRI on blue acc
    45 fs on TRI rare acc
    45 fs on TET blue acc
    60 fs on TET rare acc
    70 fs on PEN blue acc
    100 fs on PEN rare acc
    Crones stones: i use them when acc price is super low due to events or normal item price. Example, Red coral earrings went down to 1.5 mil, i used Crones for TRI and TET clicks on them.
    Acessories : how to get a TRI / TET?
    Acessories are painfull af as you all know. So heres some tips to minimize the pain:
    Pay attention to events, events like Laurens and the incoming Lavienta event bring the top accessories to half price. In BDO you will always have this events. Buy the accessories once you have oneIn cheap accessories, like Corals, Shultz belts, Bares necklaces and some other you can use crone stones to do the TRI and TET enchants. Do 3 or 4 of each then attempt enchants with crones until you get the TET or TRI. Some will downgrade, just go all in, you will get one (using the fs on the presented fs table).Never risk your main gear, do upgrades on a second piece. Corals, witches, Mark of shadows, Bares necks and other cheaper accessories are great to serve as backup for the big enchants without sacrificing to much AP.0 to +15 Enchant guide
    Enchanting  boss gear to +15 sometimes is more expensive than enchanting from +15 to TRI. This is why you cant just go yolo on the item and destroy its durability. This is my method to take it to +15 with less possible costs:
     Boss gear to +7 (+8 on weapons) - yolo, just click enchant, 0 fail stacks
    to +9 - start at 8 fs
    to +10 - start at 11 fs
    to +11 - start at 15 fs
    to +12 - start at 15 fs
    to +13 - start at 20 fs
    to +14 - start at 20 fs
    to +15 - start at 25 fs (use it to get TRI fs for other gear also, stop at 32 fs)
    It seems to many fs but as you guys already know it fails a lot.
    IMPORTANT:  dont go crazy clicking the gear, if you get a +10 gear to 15 fail stacks, STOP and save those for +11. Change character and do again from recommended fs. Check always if you reach the next needed fs, this way you use the fs properly. DO NOT CLICK a +11 on 30 fs
    Before you guys start trash talking, i only did this document because some ppl asked me to, its meant to help and its a method like 100 others. Works for me, gl!
    I play in the EU server, lvl 60 Wizard , Oldskool guild.
    My current gear is:

    Update on gear: 2017 (atm going for PENS so rip some TETs lol, but getting them back now)
  5. Hello to everyone,
    I have a little idea, there are many events in the game, thats very good but  I have not seen (pen enchanced event).
    For example, take some pearl like 20000 or 30000 and we have the right to win just 1 Pen enchanced succes items but which one is not clear like awakening weapon, weapon, second weapon, armor, helmet, gloves or shoes.  
    If such an event happens, I believe that many users will wait and join the event.
    Have a good time...
  6. Hello,
    I'm fairly new to Black Desert Online. Though I've only been playing a month, I can only imagine the frustration that other players have experienced at much higher levels than I. My suggestion is about the penalty and cost to upgrading weapons, accessories, and gear.
    1. The Failstack system is still a little blackboxed but I understand why it exists. However, my beef is with upgrading beyond +15. The pentaly should never degrade an item back down to it's former level if the upgrade fails. The penalty for having to build up blackstone failstacks, grind for more blackstones, and repair duability is more than enough. Taking away a sense of acheivement for getting Duo, Tri, or Tet is counterintuitive to enticing us to upgrade. As an example, I'm perfectly satisfied staying at Duo for most of my gear bcause I don't want to loose that upgrade ever. Especally when I'm trying to grind tougher and tougher mobs. Therefore I'll never try and therefore I'll never experience the higher level of upgrade. Many players have simply quit the game because they lost a tet or pen on an item. One friend of mine simply won't play because of this reason.
    2. Accessories. These should never "Blow Up" or be destroyed. It's already enough to have to find an item again or use memory fragments to repair the max durability of an item let alone build up the fail stacks to try a Pri let alone a higher level of upgrade. I refer again to penelizing a player for the work that they did grinding, playing and acquiring items to simply try for an upgrade in this manner is ludicris. I will never Pri my Ogre ring simply for this reason. Accessories should have a similar blackstone item such as a concentrated in order to attempt an upgrade. Another alternative is to reduce durability on an accessory by 20 or 40 pts instead of the regular 10 like with armor and weapons. Another alternative is to give a bonus penalty on the item until it is back to a certain percentage of max durability (eg. 80/100 duability = 80% effectiveness). Keeping in mind that Fail Stacks are still necessary for a potentially positive upgrade.
    My request is simple. Change the mechanic of blowing up an upgrade or an accessory. This will help encourage players to continue to grind because they already need to acquire blackstones at an alarmingly low drop rate through various means such as grinding, gathering, questing, and doing scrolls. These tasks are already fairly time consuming. By destroying items, as a game mech anic for all of my hard work, you're now taking away the time that I've spent to attain the attempt at the upgrade, as well as the previous upgrade. Which in some cases is months of work.
    Comments and additional thoughts are welcome.
