Bug Fixes/Minor Changes
Production Skill Changes
We've received a lot of feedback on the Production Skills, mostly that everyone loves them! However, players were finding that some skills were too easy to obtain level 100, while other skills were too difficult to obtain level 100. As a result....
In this update we are releasing the highly anticipated Reforging System. We've received MANY questions about the Reforging System, but we've tried to keep it as hush hush as possible... Until now....
Where can I reforge my items?
Visit Gingrofer in Ladianes Village, next to Jakar. He will teach you how to Reforge & allow you to access the Reforging Menu.
When can I use reforging?
Reforging can be used as soon as you have achieved level 100 in Refining, Potion Brewing, and Blacksmithing. You MUST have level 100 in ALL 3 skills before being able to reforge an item or receive Reforging EXP.
How does reforging work?
Players can reforge their equipment stats into a Reforged Version of the stat. This can be done by speaking to Gingrofer. Each time you reforge an item there will be a Resource Cost that becomes higher depending on the level of the stat you wish to reforge. As well players will have to offer up an item, a Sacrifice Item, that is of the SAME TYPE and SAME STAT LEVEL as the item stat they wish to reforge. Meaning if you want to reforge a +5 Ultima Staff, you will need x2 +5 Ultima Staffs (one will be lost and the other will be reforged).
Once in the Reforging Menu (speak to Gingrofer to open the Menu) simply click and drag the Sacrifice Item into the appropriate slot, titled "Item to Sacrifice", and drag the Reforge Item into the appropriate slot, titled "Item to Reforge". Note that both items must be of the same type (for example x2 Ultima Staffs)! Once you do this, any stats that are of the same type and level between both the Sacrifice Item & Reforge Item will be shown. Select one, and click the "Reforge Item" button.
Once the item is reforged you can upgrade it using normal upgrade gems, and the Reforged Item Stat will have a higher success rate (which depends on your overall Reforging Level).
The higher your Reforging Level, the higher the success rate bonus you get when upgrading reforged stats. At level 100 Reforging you receive a x2 upgrade bonus. Once the reforged stat is upgraded, it will no longer be reforged (but it can be reforged again if you want after upgrading it).
How many resources do I need to reforge an item stat?
Up until a stat level 7, Resource Costs will only include: Metal, Wood, Gemstone, & Leather. However once you try to reforge a stat that is level 7, 8, or 9 Pouches become included in Resource Costs. For non-blessing stats you will need Sephiroth Choice Pouches (this includes level 11 Jewlery), for blessing stats (Mystic, Triumphus, Fabula, Ultima, Acura) you will need Blue Tear Pouches (for weapon) and Red Honor Pouches (for armor).
