Refinement

From LifeTO

What is refinement?

To refine your equipment, see Blacksmith Marx (available in most towns).

Refinement is a simple process that require either gems or ores to upgrade your equipment. Ores are found in the 1st mining lot and gems are found in the 2nd mining lot of each respective town's mine.

Fragment ores and gems are used for equipment levels 0 - 4, Impure ores and Gems are used for equipment levels 5 - 7, Pure ores and Flawless gems are used for equipment levels 8 - 10. For equipment level 11 - 13, rare precious metals and gems are required. Level 13 is the highest any equip can obtain.

Refinement Success Rates

Refinement has a chance to fail during the upgrade process, rending the equipment completely unusable until repair powders are used to fix it. The amount of repair powders needed are relative to the level of an equipment at the time of failure (for example, and equipment that failed from going from level 5 to 6 will require a total of 5 repair powders).

Magnification Ratios

Not all equipment are equal when it comes to refinement. The power of the refinement is dependent on the items' Rarity System — for example, a five star equip will yield a higher final outcome compared to an equip with only one star, even with the same base stat.

Calculating Ratios

Using the table below, you can calculate the equipment's stats throughout the refinement process. Using a Draconic Sword as an example (base AP of 1278), the total AP of the Draconic Sword would be 4601 at level ten, due to it being a Legendary (five star) equipment.
