Core Augmenting is a way to further enhance your equipment that is level 70 or higher.
Note of Importance: If you change one piece of a set, you will lose the full set effect due to having one piece a new cored set piece and the rest the old set. This is due to changed names and set effects for cored pieces. Therefore, only core items if you are able to core the entire set at one time.
To give gear additional green stats, you can enchant gear at the Enchanter Camellia NPC in Regenshein.
There are several types of Cores you can obtain:
- Red Core Augment: Level 70-79 Unique Equipment
- Yellow Core Augment: Golden Equipment
- Blue Core Augment: 75 Honor Equipment
- Purple Core Augment: Superior Equipment
- Ruby Core Augment: 80 Unique Sets & 85 Unique Weapons
- Sapphire Core Augment: 85 Honor Equipment
- Brilliant Red Core Augment 90 Unique Equipment
- Ruined Red Core Augment 90 Unique Equipment
- Mystic Red Core Augment 90 Unique Equipment
- Resolute Conquerors Core 95 Honor Equipment
- Mighty Conquerors Core 95 Honor Equipment
- Skilled Conquerors Core 95 Honor Equipment
- Cruel Conquerors Core 95 Honor Equipment
The piece of equipment that you would like to core must be reinforced to +7 or above and level 70 or higher.
To reduce the incidence of failure, Enriched Pellurite or Rubicine Extracts of the same level as the equipment should be used although extracts maybe used with significantly lower success rates.
- 0 Pell/Rub Extracts used: 20% success rate
- 1 Pell/Rub Extracts used: 28% success rate
- 2 Pell/Rub Extracts used: 36% success rate
- 3 Pell/Rub Extracts used: 44% success rate
- 4 Pell/Rub Extracts used: 52% success rate
- 0 Enriched Pell/Rub Extracts used: 20% success rate
- 1 Enriched Pell/Rub Extracts used: 40% success rate
- 2 Enriched Pell/Rub Extracts used: 60% success rate
- 3 Enriched Pell/Rub Extracts used: 80% success rate
- 4 Enriched Pell/Rub Extracts used: 100% success rate
If the augmentation should fail, all extracts and cores will be destroyed, but the equipment item will remain the same,even when trying to core with no enriched/extracts.
Make sure you have enough cores and enriched extracts to core all pieces of the set to avoid losing the set effects.
- Right-click the core (You may exit out of this window if needed).
- Drag equipment item to the center box. (20% success rate without extracts.)
- Drag extracts to the 4 outer boxes. (20% success rate per enriched, 8% rate per regular extracts.)
- Confirm the augmentation at the bottom.
- Confirm then 2nd window that warns of the change in sets.
- Augmentation complete!
What will it change?Edit
When a piece of gear is cored, this will affect the blue stats only, not any of the green enchantments that you have added to it with Crystals. A quick list of things that will change:
- Name & Set Name
- Blue stats
- Set Effects
Quick list of things that will not change:
- Attack & Defense stats
- Reinforcement levels
- Enchantments (Green stats, added with crystals)
Your gear will get a new name in a new set. So if you are coring a set, you must core the entire set at the same time or else you will have pieces from two different sets possibly leaving you without either of the set effects.
Example of Cored Gear:Edit
Warrior Severe Cold Sword
|Name||Sword of Severe Cold||Frozen Rage Greatsword|
|Blue Stat 1||79 Phys Damage||105 Phys Damage|
|Blue Stat 2||Max HP +1130||Max HP +1490|
|Blue Stat 3||STR +15||STR +30|
|3-Piece Effects||Max HP +1190||Max HP +1570|
|Max MP +600||Max MP +780|
|4-Piece Effects||Phys Defense +280||Phys Defense +320|
|CON +40||CON +80|
|Phys Att +150||Phys Att +172|
|5-Piece Effects||10% Chance of Glacial Spike||12% Chance of Glacial Spike|
Since the rank does not change, the reinforcement costs and rates will not change either.
Where to Obtain CoresEdit
Cold Wave's CrystalsEdit
These pieces can be traded to Madison Lech in Epheso's Commerical District for whole Cold Wave's Crystals by completing either a Daily Quest named Cold Wave Crystal (Daily) which rewards 1 Cold Wave's Crystal or a Repeatable quest named (Repeat) Mandozi's Magic Chest.
