Greeting adventurer, it's me again. This round I'm going to cover on gear enhancement. On my previous guide, I had cover on levelling guide for beginner. In between the line, I had mention about enhancement which I will cover in this topic. If any of you have not seen it, feel free to click the link below:

https://www.sea.playblackdesert.com/Community/Detail?topicNo=29413&topicType=1&returnUrl=%2fCommunity%3ftopicType%3d1+%26amp%3bsearchType%3dtitle+%26amp%3bPage%3d1+%26amp%3borderBy%3d3+%26amp%3bsearchProfileAccount%3d%26amp%3bsearchText%3d

 

Before moving in to the main topics, I would want to make a disclaimer, all my guide are base on my experiences. Hope this will help those who feel confuse and overwhelm with the content.

 

Things to know about Enhancement

  1. Road for enhancement may be very very very.... tedious, frustrating, time, silver consuming.
  2. Enhancement is all about taking risks. Higher risk = high return. 
  3. You can get profit with just selling enhancement item, at the same time if your RNG is bad, you also make losses. (double edge sword)

 

Without further ado, let move on the the main topic.

How to get stack up the fail-stack

Each time when you fail an enhancement, you will be getting a stack. Some beginner may wonder why on earth you want to fail enhancement? Yes you need to failed in-order to get the stack for higher grade enhancement. Below is how I stack up my stack for enhancement.

Item Name Usage Tips & Advice
+14 Reblath Use to failstack from +1 to 20

I personally use reblath to failstack up to 20 stacks. If you are a risk taker, you can make it up to 25 stacks. 

PRI: Grunil Helm Use to failstack from +15 to +20

I use this as a alternative to get stack up to +20. I personally hopping these to success to DUO so that I can use this for higher failstack. 

DUO: Grunil Helm Use to failstack from +20 to 26 Pretty straightforward, just use it to failstack to higher grade. 
TRI: Grunil Helm Use to failstack from +26 to 46
TET: Grunil Helm Use to failstack from +46 to 100 Here you have 2 options, if you running out of silver you can sell it or you be using it to enhance to get higher failstack. Chances to getting PEN is quite low, I been using this to get up to 125 FS and still not PEN but it's purely RNG. Some of my guildmate got it to PEN in like 80 stacks
PEN: Grunil Helm Sell or wear it If you not into Grunil, sell it !!

 

Failstack Enhancement Guidlines

Below link show the failstack chart widely use for enhancement guidlines. I repeats chart below is only for guidlines, it's not guarantee success enhancement.

Repairing durability

Item Name Description
  Own kind gear

You can use the same gear to repair the durability. Eg: you use clean reblath shoes to repair durability of +14 reblath

 

Tips: For green & blue gear, it recommended to repair using it's own kind. Do not waste it using memory fragment as it not worth it.

Memory Fragment Use this to repair yellow, ship, horse, manos gears
Artisan Memory

Booster for repairing durability by 5 times

 

Tips: I usually use a boss gear together with artisan memory to repair my durability. 

1 boss gear + 1 artisan memory = 50 durability

 

That it, this the end of the failstack and enhancement guide. Do note that this failstack chart are mainly for weapon, armor and manos gears.  In near future, I will release the failstack for other gear such as horse, ship gear and etc. Aside that, since now is seasonal server, do note that above failstack chart still applicable, just the matrial use to enhance may be different. I also got to know by my guild mates, that enhancement of tuvala equipment is much simpler which you can start to PEN in 70 failstack onward. I have yet start enhancing in seasonal so I cannot comment much on it but my guess it's all about RNG.

 

Before I end my guide, I would like to emphasis again that all the guide I had written so far are based on my experience, research, experiments and learn from other adventurer. Okay cyall next week on next guide.

I beg to differ in some of your statements.. Aside from grinding and heating the sharp and hard ones, hunters seals could also be the best choice of acquiring blackstones. Aside from that you could craft also the blackstones.. If you have the vast amount of mats to craft it. Morever, if you are into grinding looting those upgraded armors and extracting the blackstones could make a different.

Quoted:
Tips: For green & blue gear, it recommended to repair using it's own kind. Do not waste it using memory fragment as it not worth it.

Well it is only for gears case. Since your article is for enhancement kindly reiterate that and specifically say the right word for it.
Well blue , green and yellow gears that "are" special such as horse gear and ships gear which is only obtainable in a matter of time. Is not and will not be recommendable to be used as a catalyst. More than that, the playstyle of a person matters as well. 

PS: Run a grammarly check before you post your guide.

There is one more method to get the black stone (armor/weapon) and it's involving extracting an enhanced gear (Weapon/Armor) and You didn't mention about safe enhancing in upper gear level, such as to TRI/TET/PEN which is using crons to avoid downgrading a piece of gear, and you can also use caphras as enhancing method to safely enhance to upper enhancement level, but it cost a lot of money and not beginner-friendly, and you can only put caphras from TRI gear. And also you didn't mention the blackstar enhancing method which is different from the normal enhancing. And also you didn't mention the accessories enhancement, which you can lose a lot of money.
