Equipment Upgrade System

Equipment Upgrade System allows players to exchange items of a certain grade for items of a higher grade.

General Information

  • Equipment is exchanged via Head Blacksmith Ferris in the Town of Aden.
  • There are different types of upgrade: Rare (dimensional and rare Items), common (grades D~A), special (grade S).
  • Only certain Items can be exchanged: Only Items of the highest level within a grade can be upgraded to a higher grade.
  • To exchange, you need an item from the list of the equipment which can be upgraded, a special item called Varnish of a certain grade, and gemstones of the same grade. You’ll also need to pay a certain amount of adena.
  • Weapon enchantment value should be between +12 and +35.
  • Armor enchantment value should be between +10 and +25.
  • Accessory enchantment value should be between +8 and +20.
  • After exchanging, the enchantment value will change:
    • Enchantment of the obtained grade D~A item will be reduced by 1.
    • Enchantment of the obtained grade S item will be +0.
  • Augmented equipment, equipment with Runes or sealed Items cannot be exchanged.
  • Chances of successful upgrade depend on the item’s grade and it’s enchantment value.
  • Chances of successful upgrade of Items grade D~A are 100%.
  • Chances of successful special upgrade of Items to grade S depend on the enchantment value of the item being upgraded: the higher the enchantment level, the greater the chances. For successful enchantment your character will also get a bonus reward: Scroll: Enchant S-grade Weapon and Scroll: Enchant S-grade Armor (the amount of scrolls depend on the enchantment value).
  • Gloves, Boots and Helmets when upgrading Armor grade B-A get upgraded as sealed.
  • You can choose either upper or lower Armor as material to upgrade full Armor, however, you’ll get full Armor as the result of upgrading it.
