Upgrading armor, more cost effective

12 posts in this topic

Posted

Tryed asking in server chat but the responses were all trolls so i came here. Here's my problem: i have at least lost 10m gold trying to upgrade my yuria sword to 15 and my grun chest to 15, both of which are 13 and 14. Its getting to the put of frustation that i am being punished so serverly for failing enchants in a rng based system, being forced to pay 260k-300k per piece of gear to upgrade my durabiliy back up. Is their a more cost effective away of upgrading my pieces or am i forced to endure this rng bullshit?

Saving up and buying is by far the most cost effective. There is an amity game you could play in Calph for Yuria weapons though.

Here's the link to give you a guide so you can stop enchanting if your failstacks go above what's mentioned for that specific enchantment.

If that happens, you HAVE to switch to the next character to build failstack and try your RNG there. Your items are considered cheap so you can easily try your luck again from +0 failstack and try not to stress because failstacks are a good thing, it will just need patience and literally everything will pay off in the end with you NOT LOSING any silver-worth in the end.; if done correctly.

Hitting +15 is much easier than many people would like to... After you start goin for TRI you will see what is frustrating...

There's a thread for the amity game for mevo in alitinova on the forum somewhere if you google. I would suggest using the amity food and the 20% or 30% amity elixer. Costs 80-108k for each piece instead of market price. Typically you'll get a piece for every ~9 energy.

This game is a joke. It was so -----ing hard for me to hit +15 for my grunil set if I wanted to level up them. 

However, if I want to save failstack for PRI DUO TRI Kazarka/Dandelion, I couldn't get failstack anymore. Always successfully hit +15 within 10 failstack.... But I don't need these +15 anymore

Obviously, play how you want. But forcing is almost never an efficient idea unless youre enchanting fishing rods.

Right, but no offense, your kinda new... So I'll ask a vet...

See my response above? Is that the best thing to do when trying to hit +15 or even +12 and up?

Forcing is in theory never a good option... But some people have such a terrible luck, they wouldnt be able to get gear otherwise... And some pieces cant be bought on marketplace... So if you want to be as efficient as possible, always go for failstacks...

Here is a nice guide by one guy from reddit.. He put some work into it and imo wrote it nicely for new players to understand - https://www.reddit.com/r/blackdesertonline/comments/5gzhox/alexmac_gear_enchant_guide_get_those_tets_boys/

You can use it even for common gear up to +15 if you have problems buying it... Just get few failstacks on reblath and use them to upgrade your main gear without having to repair it that much... Its mostly used this way on boss armor but you can save few silvers even on common pieces...
