Firstly, if you happen to get 15% or more at any point in this process, then stop and go upgrade your A gear using one of the UPGRADE METHODS below. Use the unlicensed enhancer during this whole process.
- Upgrade an epic B item to legendary then keep it there (easy if you use your epic +5 drops).
- Move to an epic B or C item and keep upgrading it until it breaks or is destroyed enough times that you have 7.5% or more chance stacked up (I call this the “first stack”).
- If a B or C item reaches legendary during this step that you didn’t expect (this can be a good thing), move onto another epic. I like to save the legendaries for the “second stack” after I have stacked 7.5% or more from breaking/destroying epics because legendaries have a lot less chance to succeed. you want to take advantage of that smaller chance of success for when you’ve stacked up 7.5% or more from your first stack.
- Once you’ve completed your first stack, attempt your second stack using your legendary B item from step 1 (or step 2).
- This takes advantage of the fact that legendaries have a higher chance to fail. Sometimes your legendary may fail and you will have only 12.5%. If this happens, try the legendary again OR if you have a legendary or mythic B piece as a part of your build, use the attempt on this piece instead via the common enhancer (This way, if your 12.5% succeeds, then you just increased your GS, but if it fails, you only have to pay 1k to repair it and you can use the 17.5% to enhance the A piece you’re working on).
If at any point an upgrade succeeds before you have reached 15% or more, then start this process over from step 1. In other words, keep repeating this process until you have 15% or more stacked up, then use one of the UPGRADE METHODS below to attempt to upgrade your A gear.
Keep in mind, this process uses a good amount of cores. Your other option is to spend seed by purchasing embers on the MP. This is a matter of what resource you’d like to use. However, with the current MP prices, the price of embers skyrockets for legendary and mythic items and the additional % they provide is very small. the price of failstacking stays the same no matter the rarity level. So I recommend once your A item hits legendary, use failstacking instead of purchasing embers. For Rare items, I recommend just buying a bunch of embers because they’re so cheap (using 4 to 5 embers is good, but use more or less depending on how much risk you want to take) and then upgrade via the common enhancer. For Epic items, I recommend doing a mix of this failstacking method and buying some embers to help you along and upgrade via the common enhancer.
On average, the Master enhancer method will cost you more seed while the common enhancer method will cost you more cores.
Master enhancer method: Buy sigils on the MP which will cost you seed. When you fail at the master, you just have to try again because you will retain your failstack. no need to repeat the FAILSTACK PROCESS, but it will cost you more seed for the sigils.
Common enhancer method: Give it a whirl at the common enhancer for less seed. However, when you fail at the common, your A item will break. You will need to spend 50k seed (or 5k cores, or you can buy a duplicate of the item on the MP if it’s less than 50K seed) to repair your item and your item will be one level lower. You will gain 5% chance for your next attempt which is good, but once you succeed you’re only getting back to where you started. You will then need to repeat the FAILSTACK PROCESS over again which will cost more cores.
