Degrading failstack armor from +15 to +14


11 posts in this topic

Posted

I have been hearing some rumours lately about a cheap way to degrade your failstackarmor (white grade armor used to build failstacks). The way it is supposed to work is as follows , you have your +14 armor and when trying to build failstacks it succeeds to +15 , and now you want to get it back down to +14.

What i heared was people transferred it to an alt, equipped it, killed a few wild horses to go negative karma, then die a few times to guards untill the armor goes down to +14, transfer it back to the main. Now i have a few questions about this :

1. Is this possible to do?

2. Is this just a clever use of game mechanic or considered an exploit? ( or against the tos?)

3. If this is ok to do, how do you get the armor back into your warehouse with your negative karma alt and eventually back to your negative karma alt when it reaches +15 again?

I doubt this is considered exploit worthy, but yes it's doable. And as far as I see it working as intended.

Anything you can add about how to get the armor back to your main on your negative karma alt? Maybe i am missing something really Obvious, but i thought i couldnt go to a warehouse with the alt without getting killed by guards.

1. Yes.

2. Seems like a normal use of the game mechanics for our region. Wouldn't work in other version since they have a chance to lose armor or get it destroyed on death when negative karma.

3. Altinova at night is apparently safe and the guards wont attack. Otherwise be with a negative karma friend who lure guards around while you use the storage, then do the same for them if they need to. Note that players can still attack you though.

Thanks for the info! Both of you btw !

Whats the point of it other than blasting out tons of stones? You can do that on reblath including the extraction, no?

Retracting = resetting enchantment back to 0 resulting in alot of successes = 0 failstack

By doing it the way i described in the op , it saves you a lot of stones and time to get the armor back up to were it can reliably stack to atleast 15 failstacks ( around +12 is were i start to try for failstacks). If you extract the stones at +15 you have to start all over again and lose the majority of your invested stones since you dont get even close to all the stones you used back.

why has my brain such a hard time bending around this!? I still dont fully get it wtf

isnt using it straight on yellow or wagon/ship/horse gear much easier? I have read about it and I am yet about to try it out myself. These types of gears have a massively higher chance of faily. You dont really need to wiggle around with degrading (yourself lol)

from what ive read a +9 horseshoe can produce 30 fails on a quite reliable basis

Its all about what you want to use to get the maximum durability back up, usually higher grade items are a lot more expensive to repair for max dura , especially when the item in itself is so expensive you have to use memory shards for it
