Totem of the sea

9 posts in this topic

Hi,

If a character of mine succeeds at enhancing an old totem of the sea, will the failstack on this character be consumed? I am ready to enhance it, but I do not know how it works with failstacks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It upgrades like an alchemy stone, not like gear so u don't need fs for it. (So no it will not use your fs)

same, 7 tries all above 130%, no luck :/ with the amount of time/effort needed to get exp for the totem the chance to upgrade should be higher ;(

I managed an upgrade to next level after four tries at 80% each time. It's more like alchemy stones where failures lead to loss of exp, not sure if it can also revert to lower level. I hope not!

Second level seems to be significantly slower to build experience. the increase in boat speed is worth it though. Not sue if I want to risk it going backwards!

According to bddatabase increasing the level of the totem does not increase the speed bonus, but adds a weight limit bonus. Is that correct or not?

Increasing the grade adds the weight limit bonus. (white >green)

Increasing the level increases all the bonuses of what ever grade it is.

So it can be upgraded in both grade and level? Weapon reform stones or something else?

Just like alchemy stones the type and level can change. Each time fish caught on board or very near boat gains the experience ready for an attempted upgrade with a weapon stone.

Mine went from start to (green) Plain Totem of the Sea after 4 failures all tries at 80%

Stats are Movement speed +4% and weight limit +200
