Failstacking on alts? Why?


5 posts in this topic

Posted

I heard that people failstack on their alts because the lower your karma, the higher your chance of failing an enchant, which makes it easier to get higher failstacks. But you cant transfer these stacks to your main right? So what is the point if your success chance in general is lower, even tho its easier to get failstacks? Are there 100% success chance for items based on failstacks or is it all luck every time? 

I'm just slightly confused as to what the point is if your success chance is lower, even tho you are getting failstacks more frequently, was just wondering if someone could point out why it's useful and use some examples

I would say no. Look at the character change Window. All character have their own failstack counter. If u fail stacking on your twink, it will be not transfered to your main.

If you have more luck, i would say it s harder to collect failstacks

karma relating to enchanting is a tinfoil hat theory as far as Ive heard..

You want to use a high failstack count on enchanting valuable accessories witch earrings, ogre belt and such.

Once your main has reached a high failstack count you put the item you want to enchant and the blackstones in the storage and log on an alt to do the enchanting there.

Repeat on a second alt if the first alt gets a high failstack count too.

 

Enchanting accessories is riskier than enchanting normal equipment like gloves or feet and you want to make sure the enchant succeeds.

If you fail on an accessory enchant both items will be destroyed.

I get you want high fail stacks for enchanting accessories. But what I'm wondering is if alts do have a higher chance of failing because their karma is low, I don't understand why you would bother enchanting anything valuable. Let's say my main with max karma has a 50% chance to succeed on enchants and my alt with little to no karma has 10%. Even tho it's easier to get fail stacks on the alt, isn't the bonus chance from high karma better? Again I'm not even sure the karma thing is true, but If it is, I don't see the point for using low karma alts for enchanting.
