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.
Shadow Gears can be refined uniquely by Ryler Ignison, located at The Wyvern (242, 198), accessible by typing
When a refinement is failed using an Armor Sphere, there is a 70% chance to Curse the Shadow Gear and 30% chance of it losing 1 refine. These chances have no impact when a refinement is successful.
When a refinement is failed using an Armor Sphere+, there is a 70% chance of nothing happening and a 30% chance to Curse the Shadow Gear. 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 are the same as regular 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%|
