'I would recommend not upgrading your gear before it is +15, because each time you repair it’s maximum durability, you will either need to use the same grade, or pay an extra 30,000 silver each repair. Instead you want to get your gear to +15 then make it ultimate grade. It’s also important to make sure your gear’s max durability is fully repaired.'

 

why do people recommend its in max durability ?

That advice is outdated - it used to cost you extra silver (50-100k, depending on color of both repairing item and item being repaired).

Ignore it for now, upgrade to yellow asap.

People recommend bringing gear back to max durability (especially weapons) so you don't need to return to town in the middle of a grind session because your gear broke.

80/100 is good enough most of the time. Weapons below 50/100 are useless IMO: break too fast

BUT... I also read that upgrading to yellow has higher chance of succeeding the higher your enchantment level is. So upgrading to yellow at less than +15 might lead to more fails. Of course, would need to have it proven though.

Unless of course you're making Ultimate Reform Stones... which imo is a waste because you generally get ultimate on 3-5 tries and 10 is unnecessarily costly.

Unless you can show me tests that people have done saying that yellow is somehow better at failstacking, I'll keep believing it's based on the base item - ie, for failstacking items this'll be green (cause you're not failstacking on boss armor).

Grade 3 reform stones have a 5% chance to turn it golden which means it takes, on average, 20 stones to get an ultimate piece of gear.

never heard of theory that enhacement level makes difference on upgrading chance.
