Hello Everyone!

In this guide i will be talking about enhancing gears, failstacks, and other stuff you should know about enhancing in BDO

please note that this guide is targeted for new players

Table of contents:

1. Enchancement Levels

2. What is Failstacks and why we need it

3. How to get Failstacks

4. Fail Stacks amount that i use

5. Enhancing Tips

 

1. Enchantment Levels

In BDO the the level of enhancements are different depending on the type of the items

For Weapons and Armor it goes from +1 to +15 after that they become PRI (I) > DUO (II) > TRI (III) > TET (IV) > PEN (V)

For Accesories they start from PRI untill PEN (PRI (I) > DUO (II) > TRI (III) > TET (IV) > PEN (V))

For mount equipment they go from +1 to + 10

 

2. What is Fail Stacks and why we need it

Failstacks (or "FS" for short) is a number that increase our enhancement success rate after failing an attempt before

EX: you want to enhance your gears and it fails, the next time you try to enhance any items, it will have an increased success rate

Please note that the Failstacks will be consumed if you succeed on enchanting an item, unless it has a fixed enchancement rate

 

So where can we see our fail stacks chance? We can see it on our character potraits, or we can see it on our enchance UI

- For the one on the characters potrait, the number that is circled is the Failstacks amount

For the one our enhance UI

The one that i circled in red is the Failstacks amount (if yours doesn't look the same as mine dont worry, it is because i've got +1 permanent enhancement chance which will be discussed in the next section)

 

So why does FS important when enhancing? because it increase our success rate!!

As you can see, the differences is quite big (15.71% compared to 40%). By using FS you can increase your chance of getting higher grade enhacement level

3. How to get Failstacks

RED BOX - Total amount of your Failstacks in that character (Permanent Enchancement Chance + Valks Enchancement Chance + Enchancement Chance)

BLUE BOX - Failstacks gained from using Valks Cry (can go up to +10)

PURPLE BOX - Failstacks gained from failing to enchant a gear

 

How to get Failstacks

1. Permanent Enhancement Chance

You can gain up to +4 permanent fail stacks by completing the Rulupee's Travel Log

The other 3 is complete 4,921 quests, complete 9,999 quests, compelete 19,235 quests (all of them can only be completed by non repeatable quests)

The best strategy to complete them is to make another character and redo the main quests

 

2. Valks Ehancement Chance

You can gain up to 10 FS by using Valks Cry

i recommend using Valks Cry for high FS such as a tri/tet/pen attempt

How to get Valks Cry?

You can get it from Login Rewards, Events or you can extract your outifts on the blacksmith NPC

 

3. Getting FS using scrolls (Advice of Valks)

By using Advice of Valks you can get the amount of FS on the item (in this case you'll get 6 FS). But in order to use this item, your FS must start at 0 (having permanent enhancement chance wont prevent you from using this item)

 

4. Getting FS by failing enhancement intentionally 

First you'll need either a +14 Milita Weapon and/or a +14 Reblath gloves/shoes and a bunch of black stones (personally i prefer reblath)

How to get reblath? you can buy it from the Tranan Underfoe (Blacksmith in Velia). How to get Milita Weapon? you can buy it from Alfredo (Arms Dealer in Velia)

 

After you get your +14 Reblath / Milita weapon you can just enhance it with blackstone until you get your desired FS (you can reach up to +30). I recommend to use the skip animation option because your goal here is to make FS as quick as possible 

 

What should i do if my Reblath / Militia Weapon reach +15?

There are 2 ways to drop your Failstacking equipment back to +14

A. Cleanse Gear

Pros : its a simple and quick process

Cons : it cost 100k silver

You can downgrade your +15 to +14 by talking to Ottavio Ferre (located inside the church in Velia) by paying 100k silver

You talk to the NPC and pick the Cleanse Gear option 

After that you pick the item you want to degrade and pay the silver fee

And there you got it has been downgraded to + 14 and you can continue making FS from the start

B. Degrading via Negative Karma

Pros : its free

Cons : Its based on RNG so sometimes it can take a long time

How it works : When you have a negative karma and dies, there is a chance for you gear in that character to downgrade by 1 level

How to do it:

1. Make a Negative Karma Alt (you can kill horses with low level character to drop your karma)

2. Equip your +15 gear you want to downgrade

3. Let the city guard kill you to downgrade your gear

 

4. Fail Stacks amount that i use

The recommended fail stacks that i'll write down here is my personal preferences

For boss weapon / armor

+1 - +7 Is a 100% fixed enhance

+8 - + 9 i use 10 FS

+10 i use 18 FS

+ 11 - 12 i use 20 FS

+ 13 - 15 i use 25 FS

PRI = 19 FS

DUO = 20 FS

TRI = 35 FS

TET = 45 FS 

for PEN you can start attempting at 90+ fs

 

For Yellow grade accesories

PRI = 20 FS

DUO = 35 FS

TRI = 50 FS

TET = 100+ FS

PEN = its a gamble tho you can start at 100 / 200 fs

 

There are also some external link (Spreadsheets) that you can take a look to get FS references

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Lv4vnMKzf53h9_AbS0pz2hvkeX_w5wL3oXW0iLtY30M/edit#gid=1289960585 (FS Recommendation for gears)

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JfYm6ZNy9oUlYr_Su6nTiQwK8tjp5jvbUflW_yRaLec/edit#gid=220804935 (Weapon and Armor success rate at every FS)

 

5. Enhacing Tips

- If your FS far exceed the recomended amount, it is better to open a new character and make a new FS (EX: you are doing PRI attempt on boss gears and the FS amount reach 40, it is better to make a new Failstacks and safe the 40 FS for a TRI attempt)

- When enhancing a boss gear, you might want to use Pure Magical Black Stone (you can get them from world boss or field boss) for +13 - +15

- When repairing white/green gears (usually Failstacking materials) it is cheaper to use the plain version of the item rather than using Memory Fragment

- If you are enhancing a Liverto weapon sometime it is cheapet to repair it with a plain duplicate (restores 10 durability) rather than using Memory Fragment

- You should always use Memory Fragment to repair a boss weapon / armor

- Using Artisan's Memory will increase the amount of durability repaired by fivefold, i recommend using Artisan's Memory only for repairing boss weapon / armor

- Only use Cron Stone if you have failed a TET attempt a lot, want to do a PEN attempt 

- The best way to get Cron Stone is by doing dark rift / extracting costume in Blacksmith NPC rather than buying each for 2 million silvers

(It cost 243 million silvers to buy outfits from the marketplace and melt it into 303 Cron Stone which is worth 606 million silvers if you buy each for 2 million silvers, the only downside for this method is the fact that you have to wait for someone to sell the outfit you preordered in the market)

 

I hope this guide will help new players to understand the enhancement system in BDO a little bit better.

Don't use bubble attack on meee Momma Toffee . I just can't decide to use Sorc or Shai as main... I love both of them too much...

Personally, I do not enhance and just buy my battle gear from the central market. After the recent events where we were asked to enchance accesories, I figured this is something I can do when I have my full gear. So just in case it fails my Gear score wont suffer, but tbh my AP has been the same for quite sometime since I rarely go out to fight.
