Adventurer's Guide

Enhancement

The 'Black stone' not only takes a big part of Black Desert story, but it also plays an important role in the game.

 

It is because it serves the role as the ingredient necessary to improve the status of an item.

When you completed the quest, '[Awakening] Traces of Edana ', requested by the Black Spirit, you will be able to use 'enhancement' and 'transfusion'.

 

Enhancement means to improve the status of an item using Black stone or the same kind of items as ingredients.

Transfusion means to add a special feature to an item by putting a Magical Crystal into its socket.

 

You can proceed with enhancement right away if you have prepared the required ingredients. Also, if you only take the risk of destroying the weapon you use, you can easily recover the consumed black stone through extraction.

Therefore, every time you obtain a Black stone, it’s a good idea to proceed with enhancement.

 

 

 

 

 

Enhancement


Enhancement is an action to improve the AP or DP by synthesizing Black stone or the same kind of item to equipment.

 

Most items can be safely enhanced up to +7 for weapons, +5 for armor without failure.

It is called the 'safe enhancement' range, and thereafter you will be able to increase the enhancement count by small chances.

 

If you fail enhancement, the maximum durability of equipment might decrease or enhancement count can be lowered depending on the item.

 

Especially for the items such as necklace, earrings, and ring, if you fail enhancement, note that both the item you wanted to enhance and the ingredient item used for enhancement can disappear.

※ The higher the level of enhancement you are attempting, the greater the maximum durability decrease will be.

▲ In the Black Spirit’s menu, select 'enhancement' to enhance your equipment.

 

 

 

 

 

Force-enhancement


Above the safe enhancement range(weapon +7, armor +5), 'Force-enhancement' function will be activated to proceed with enhancement by 100% chance.

 

However, for the force-enhancement, you need more black stones that the amount you need for general enhancement. The higher the level of enhancement, the more Black stones will be required.

Also, the force-enhancement, depending on the level of enhancement, decreases the maximum durability of the item

 

If the maximum durability count becomes 20 or less due to enhancement failure or the force-enhancement, the corresponding equipment will be no longer available for enhancement.

 

If the maximum durability becomes 0, you cannot use the corresponding equipment anymore.

 

In order to use it again for the normal purpose, you need to recover the maximum durability level.

 The recovery of maximum durability can be done through a blacksmith.

 

▲ It requires a lot of black stones, but success chance is 100% and maximum durability decreases.

 

The black stones that have been used for enhancement can be recovered in proportion to enhancement level through ‘Black stone extraction’.

However, the equipment from which the black stones are extracted will disappear.

 

If you have increased the enhancement level through safe enhancement only, you can recover as many as the number of black stones you have used for enhancement.

If you have increased the enhancement level above safe enhancement, the number of black stones you will recover is the level +@.

 

 

 

 

 

Increase enhancement chance


If you fail enhancement, the ‘enhancement chance’ increases by 1.

As the count increases, the success chance for next enhancement gets higher.


▲ If you fail enhancement, the ‘enhancement chance’ increases by 1.

 

If you fail enhancement, the maximum durability of the corresponding item decreases.

 

So some people enhance items such as Reblath Amor and etc. first since it is easier to recover the maximum durability of these items. Then they increase the possibility of ‘enhancement chance’ by accumulating the number of failures.

 

After a number of continuous failure, if you have accumulated about 10~15 counts of ‘enhancement chance’, you can enhance the equipment that you want.

Some adventurers call this method ‘fail stacking’.

 

You can also increase the enhancement chance using 'Valks’s Cry' item.

There is no limit on increasing the enhancement chance from failing, but there is limit on increasing the enhancement chance using 'Valks’s Cry'. It is maximum 10.

 

You can obtain a certain amount of ‘Valks’s Cry’ when you take a pearl outfit to Blacksmith NPC who would then proceed with extraction.

 

 

 

 

 

Extract chance


What if you want to keep the increased ‘enhancement chance’ and use it later?

Use Blacksmith’s Secret Book and Advice of Valks, you can extract it first

 

▲ Blacksmith’s Secret Book can be purchased from the Blacksmith NPC or an armor vendor in a town.

When you purchase Blacksmith’s Secret Book, please keep in mind that you need to purchase the proper Secret Book that is applicable to the ‘enhancement chance’ you want to extract.

For Blacksmith’s Secret Book, extraction of ‘enhancement chance’ that is less than what is written in the Secret Book is allowed.

 

For example, if the current ‘enhancement chance’ is +21, Blacksmith’s Secret Book-20 cannot be used for extraction. Blacksmith’s Secret Book-30 would be the proper item.

 

If you have purchased the proper Blacksmith’s Secret Book, summon the Black Spirit and click enhancement menu


▲ If you have Blacksmith’s Secret Book, the button for ‘extract chance’ becomes active.

 

Click the ‘extract chance’ button to activate ‘extract enhancement’ window

Right-click the Secret Book you have in your inventory, then click ‘extract enhancement’ button to proceed with extraction.

 

Click extraction button to activate confirmation window,

If you agree, the amount of ‘Enhancement chance’ that has been accumulating will be extracted as the Advice of Walks in the same amount.

 

However, ‘Valks’s Cry chance increase’ will not be extracted.

If you proceed with ‘extract enhancement’ while the count of ‘Valks’s Cry chance increase’ has been accumulated,

‘enhancement chance’ will be reset to 0 and the count of ‘Valks’s Cry chance increase’ will remain the same.

 

 

 

 

 

Choose the enhancement type


For the items of green grade with enhancement count +14 or less, you can choose the enhancement type at the time of enhancement.

Place the equipment of right conditions into the enhancement window, then the buttons for choosing enhancement type appears.

 

Enhancement types are classified into [Enhance] and [Durable]

 

If you choose [Enhance], the success chance of enhancement increases.

If you choose [Durable], the success chance of enhancement decreases and the damage value of maximum durability in case of failure decreases.

 

 

 

 

 

Cron Stone


If you keep on doing enhancement after +15 level, you may be able to obtain the items of PRI · DUO · TRI · TET · PEN levels.

However, if you fail enhancement of PRI or above level, the enhancement count will decrease, and for accessories, they will be destroyed and deleted.

At this time, if you use Cron Stone, you can prevent weapons or armors from losing enhancement count, and for accessories, you can prevent them from being destroyed.

In case of accessories, they will not be destroyed, however, their enhancement count might decrease by certain chance.  

 

▲ When using Cron, make check mark next to the Cron Stone at the bottom of enhancement window.

 

You can obtain Cron Stone by purchasing it from Blacksmith NPC or taking a pearl outfit to Blacksmith NPC and asking for extraction.

The number of Cron Stones required for enhancement depends on current market price of the item that you want to proceed with enhancement with.

Regardless of the result of enhancement, whether you succeeded or failed, the Cron Stone will be consumed, and the ‘enhancement chance’ will not increase even if you have failed the enhancement.

 

 

 

 

 

Caphras Stone

You can use the Caphras Enhancement system to enhance TRI (III) or higher enhancement level weapons and armor. You’ll need Caphras Stones to use this enhancement system. You can access this system by summoning your Black Spirit (/) then going to Enhancement > Caphras Enhancement.

 

​​​​​​​

 

Caphras Enhancement has a total of 20 levels.

The TRI(III) or higher weapon and armor will get EXP when you use Caphras Stones to level them.

 

They go up a level once they get enough EXP. They get a new effect each time they level.

 

The button appears when the item reaches Caphras enhancement level 20.

The item will go up an enhancement level when you click on this button. (e.g. III → IV, IV → V)

 

The item needs to have 100 max durability to upgrade it. Once it’s successfully upgraded, it will have 0 max durability and it’s Caphras enhancement levels will reset.

 

Be careful when you try to attempt a regular enhancement with an item that has Caphras enhancement levels. If you fail the enchantment, only 50% of the Caphras enhancement EXP will be transferred over.

 

If you succeed a regular enhancement, then 10% of the Caphras enhancement EXP will be transferred over.

 

 

The table below shows the effects each type of item gets at every Caphras enhancement level.

※ Please note that the effects do not accumulate.
