Accessory Enhancement Rage


45 posts in this topic

Posted

I just blew approximately 2,5 billion for trying to upgrade a simple tree spirit belt to TRI with more than enough failstacks for each stage. I have absolutely nothing left now and am beltless. Right after my crisis and in the middle of my desperation, I saw a few TRI tree belt success messages on my screen of random players. One of them succeeded without no fails until TRI at all and succeeded the TRI attempt with only 35 failstacks. Something died inside of me, I'm not the same as before any more. I am SO tilted right now, it's insane.

I feel really bad for you, and hearing stories like this make me not want continue playing my main. I'm at 56 and hitting a brick wall everywhere I go. I'd rather start another character from scratch then go through something like that.

Just keep in mind that most players will exaggerate or even straight up lie about their enchanting results. When successful they will usually say it was easier than it actually was and when failing they will say it was worse than it actually was. This is can very well be unintentional (to a degree) since humans tend to behave as such in general to promote what they consider a more successful image of themselves to others.

Accessories are absolutely frustrating to enchant beyond DUO. I lost a stupid amount of silver because of my TRI attempts on yellow/boss accessories. To the point where I quit for 2 months during last summer (and was so pissed that I deleted my progress). Still I was stupid enough to later on try again but fortunately did not go all the way. I am never again going to put myself through the vast amounts of brainless grinding required to raise the silver just to burn it on this kind of gambling where I may end up with zero gains. I got no problem with enchanting armor/weapons or even cheap acc. but yellow/boss accessories is a no go for me when it comes to TRI+. 

I love my life skills char, I make tons of money doing a ton of different things, and it is far more interesting than killing the same mobs literally thousands of times over and over again(although gathering for 440 energy does make me fall asleep too). I have a goal that is measured in silver and my plan is to buy all BiS accessories that I need, and I don't care how long it will take to snipe them. Does that make me less competitive in PvP? Yes it certainly does. It also makes me happier though. And that's what counts for me. I play to have fun. And I discovered I can have tons of fun without kicking ass in PvP. Also, ironically enough, life skills are just as competitive at top levels. It is actually crazy how competitive they are.

I now grind mobs solely for frag scroll parts and nowadays for crystals to grind to black stone powder, and hope I like DK awakening enough to be my next combat main. I also hope for a T8 but it's not gonna happen... I am sitting on billions of silver and have stupid stuff like 2 full sets of boss armor, weapons etc

You can easily take a break yourself and try out other things in the game. It is actually a very common cycle. Grind to 60->life skills. Destroy all your stuff->life skills...

I know them feels. Sold my DUO Sicils to get money to make a TRI serap's. Burned through hundreds of millions and stopped myself before I went broke. All I got was a DUO Serap's out of it. I was getting so frustrated that I was angry enhancing, and that's very dangerous.

I've failed DUO TSB twice, and have gotten 3 of those to go through, but have failed TRI on all three of those times as well. I feel your pain. After my third TRI TSB fail I started attempting Basi belts and I'm currently 0 for 2 with DUO attempts at 35 and 36 failstacks.

TSB you are saying? Oh yeah, I've tried to enchant a few of these, none ever succeeded :P

People need to learn there's a diminished return on failstacks. If you go over your odds of succeeding go down. There is a "hotspot" for every item in the game.

Stop crying srsly

 

anything beyond duo is playing with Fortuna. Sometimes you get Lucky sometimes you dont.

Complaining about it wont solve anything. Having 2,5B lets me think you know how this game works, then you should know that going to enchant something doesnt give you an upgrade in anycase

 

Rng is always itchy with a capital B before it, so make her drunk and ....

But I feel just as infuriated, sad and bitter, when I blowing up backups tho lol.

Blowing up a backup is just as expensive and depressing. It's still weeks of work and billions down the drain and nothing to show for.

It's only less inconvenient, since no loss of AP/DP.

There's only one thing that comforts me slightly after blowing up stuff, that's looking at the increased failstack. Because you know that stacks eventually leads to something nice. It's statistically speaking very unlikely that a stack never grants you any upgrades. Otherwise everyone would be sitting on tons of PEN stacks by now.

A backup is an item you don't enchant on. It means you have a fixed level of gearscore to rely on if things go wrong.
