(PEN BLACKSTAR FLORANG - SHAI (source:reddit)

 

 

"urgh blackstar is so expensive, I dont have time for that"

No no, blackstar is cool. And to get one, it's not as hard as people think. And this weapon is definitely more of an endgame weapon than KZARKA (Offin is still alternative option since it still gives you more AP)

I made my TRI BLACKSTAR from zero, and only cost me about 1.5 billion silvers (my case is probably average luck)

 

So what's the special about a BLACKSTAR

-Best PVE Mainhand

-Additional Max durability

-PEN BLACKSTAR & PEN KZARKA FULL LEVEL 20 CAPHRAS gives you the same stats, with additional AP for Monsters and 200 MAX DURABILITY!

(you'll need around 30k caphras stone to reach level 20 on PEN kzarka, which is.... a little bit expensive)

-As for PVP, it's still the same with KZARKA 

-Looks lit

 

What should I know about BLACKSTAR WEAPON?

->Blackstar cannot use caphras stone

->+0-+15 you'll need Concentrated Magical black stone (Weapon)

->Failure enhancement at +15 below gives you -10 max durability and only +1 failstack

->At PRI TO PEN, you'll need Pure Magical Black Stone (you can get that by heating 1 MASS OF PURE MAGIC + 1 SHARP CRYSTAL + 1 HARD CRYSTAL)

->You can get MASS OF PURE MAGIC by grinding, gathering, Star's End Excavation Node, Grinding Blackstones, or easiest way, you'll get 5 MASS by manufacturing 1 REMNANTS OF RIFT +1 BLACK SPIRIT CLAW (you can easily get them both on marketplace)

->TRI BLACKSTAR AP & ACCURACY = TET KZARKA (no caphras), TET BLACKSTAR = PEN KZARKA (no caphras)

->For me getting to TRI BLACKSTAR is easier than TET KZARKA (higher enhancement rate), but failure can be more punishing since you'll need double memory fragments and 1 Stone (at PRI above) can cost you around 15 million silvers.

->Getting a PEN BLACKSTAR is the HARDEST RNG in this game!

->Special effect only appear on PEN BLACKSTAR

 

 

It's seems like a blackstar weapon become more popular these days. As you can see the price of KZARKA at marketplace, especially TET is getting cheaper and cheaper.

In conclusion, if you dont have PEN KZARKA yet, getting a blackstar is worth it.

 

 

How do I get one? No one selling at marketplace

-To get a raw blackstar you'll need 3 ANY BOSS GEAR (WEAPON ONLY), and heat them. You'll need the material for the quest later on

-REMNANTS OF RIFT-easily get at marketplace or rare drop from dark rift

-Right click at your remnants of rift to start the blackstar quest

-You only need minimum 150 AP to finished the questline. Although you can choose hard path (260 AP) or easy path (150 AP). Of course the hard one gives you some bonus (I beat the hard one with only 210 AP, you have to kill a boss in 15 minutes without dying)

 

 

More info about blackstar weapon, you can check this link

As for fail stack, im using normal failstack for boss weapon up until duo blackstar. To reach TRI BLACKSTAR, im using +60 failstack (around 25% enhancement succes rate). And of course PEN boss failstack for TET blackstar (still gives you more success rate than PEN KZARKA)

Not much data around regarding the failstack of blackstar.

But I recommend getting a little bit higher failstack than usual boss weapon stack, because fail enhancement can cost you double with blackstar.

 

 

Star's End Excavation Node (thanks to @Jarette)

In addition, you should start gathering the required materials for enhancing the Black Star.
Problem is that if you dont have the silver, you need to do this.
But if you have the silver, just purchase Remnant of the Rift.


You need to put into consideration that it will take 15 hours + to get 1 Mass of Pure Magic.
So it is suggested that you put any Artisan Worker with more +luck skills or +node worker time skills.
Recommended also is a Human Artisan Worker.

Also, when Succession Skills gets updated in SEA Server, Black Star Weapons will be the BEST IN SLOT Item.

 

 

That's it, I hope this is useful.

Great guide and explanation, @Lotys! It's a great read.

 

 

I'm going strong with my Blackstar. I'm currently hoarding some resources for a tet attempt.

 

That Aesthetically Pleasing dark red aura will be mine, in time.

Other mean/method on getting the Mass Pure Mana Lump :

Hunt Field Bosses : Giant Mudster/Dim Tree etc.

Hunting: Whales

Farming : Harversting Magical Seed/ Mysterious. Only harvesting work (Low chances)

Gathering : Anything you  gather have low chances to drop mass pure mana (very low chances)

Grinding at Black Star End

Processing : Grinding Black Stone Weapon/Armor ( Very low chances)

 

On the Succession skill, it is a split option. Which mean you can only choose one between Succession/Awaken. Not all classes will be better on Succession e.g Warrior. Tamer on other hand will benefit quite nice with Succession. Succession skill damage multiplier still affected by Awaken Weapon, not ommited fully

I think you can get mass from any mobs tho, a very very rare chance, probably just as same as that costume ticket drop. I remembered getting one from manshaum. I don't know if it's higher chance at star's end. This is what it says in the description...
