Shadow Gear Refinement
Refining Shadow Gear
Refining Shadow Gear requires either Elunium or Enriched Elunium, an Armor Sphere or Armor Sphere+, and 200,000z. Like normal armor refining, it is completely safe to refine up to +4. From +4 onward. Enriched Elunium will have a higher chance of success than Normal Elunium.
When a refinement is failed using an Armor Sphere, there is a 60% chance of losing 1 refine and 40% chance to Curse the Shadow Gear. These chances have no impact when a refinement is successful.
When a refinement is failed using an Armor Sphere+, there is a 60% chance to Curse the Shadow Gear and a 40% chance of nothing happening. These chances have no impact when a refinement is successful. Armor Sphere+ can only be used on Shadow Gear that is +7 or higher.
When a Shadow Gear becomes Cursed, it will be unable to be upgraded until it is purified. It will still be usable, retain its stats and works exactly like a non-cursed version, except it will be unable to be refined.
To purify a Cursed Shadow Gear, speak to the Shadow Gear Refining NPC and go through the refinement process as normal. If the piece is cursed, he'll be able to purify it for a fee of assorted identical Ingots and some
The cost will vary, depending on the Refine of the Cursed piece.
|Refine Rate||# of Ingots||# of|
|+6 or lower||1||5|
|+7 or +8||2||10|
|+9 or higher||3||20|
The refinement rates for Shadow Gear is the same as normal armor rates, shown below:
|Upgrade||Normal Elunium||Enriched Elunium|
|+4 -> +5||60%||90%|
|+5 -> +6||40%||70%|
|+6 -> +7||40%||70%|
|+7 -> +8||20%||40%|
|+8 -> +9||20%||40%|
|+9 -> +10||9%||20%|
Armor Spheres and Armor Sphere+ are used in the refining of Shadow Gears. They are crafted with Monster Energy, acquired by turning in drops from their associated Great or Primal Monster.
An Armor Sphere costs 100 Monster Energy, while an Armor Sphere+ costs 500 Monster Energy.
Each type of loot will give you a different amount of Monster Energy, shown in the chart below:
