Refine and Upgrade

From Monkey Dynasty
Jump to: navigation, search

To refine a piece of gear, 3 items are required:

  • Gear
  • Refining Material/Talisman
  • Aux.

Head over to Enchanter Taja or any other enchanters in the World Map.

Quality

Gear progress in steps, from Ethereal -> Celestial -> Diety (Restricted to Ascended players) -> Divine (Tanyi -> Scion -> Gaian -> Lumen)

Ethereal/Celestial Quality (obtained from Faction Representatives, beginner boxes, world boss drops)

Diety (Ascended Gear up until Tanyi)

Divine (Tanyi, Scion, Gaian, and maybe Lumen gears)

  • Requires: Mystic Charm (drops from Azure Phoenix in Inferna and other mobs)

Refining and Sigils

Serenity Jade
Bronze Sigil 100%

When refining, make sure you have some sort of Auxiliary items to protect the gear. Failed refine attempts will break gears without the protection of Serenity Jades avail. at Marketplace. It'll simply deduct 1 Refine LV. Great for those prone to bad luck.

To make sure the success rate is at 100% players can purchase several sigils from the Marketplace, other players, the Donation Rewards NPCs, and other sources.

Sigil Refine LV
Bronze Sigil Refine to +5
Silver Sigil Refine to +6
Gold Sigil Refine to +7
Jade Sigil Refine to +8
Dragon Sigil Refine to +9
Kirin Sigil Refine to +10
Drake Sigil Refine to +11
Astri Sigil Refine to +12
Ares Sigil Refine to +13
Flux Sigil Refine to +14

Sigils higher than +10 may be obtained from doing Moontop Hollow (voucher rewards), Crimson Peaks, daily Exploration, purchased from the Banana Shop, exchange with Banana Peels ingame, Auction, or bought from players directly.

YOLOing

Cascade

"You only live one."
False.

Players without sigils may attempt YOLOing with 3 choices. Both Star and Cascades are from the Marketplace.
  • Star Charm +15% Chance
  • Cascade Charm + 20% Chance
  • Monkey Luck +40% Chance (from GM Events, JD Youth Dancing Pack, Auction, banana peel exchange, etc.,)

However, once the refine fails, the gear will break. Failed imbue simply deduct 1 LV.

Even though yoloing is a risky process determined solely on luck, it can be beneficial to old players who have huge amounts of bound sigils at hand. Here is the trick.

  • Purchase stacks (40-50 pieces) of Diety LV 135 Gear, the kind that Asc. beginners buy.
  • Refine up until +10 with bound sigils, then Cascade all pieces until the highest one is left over.
  • If one is lucky, a whole set of +14 Gear can be obtained this way.
Only recommended for players with enough resources.

Upgrade

By upgrade, what is meant is increasing the quality from LV 135 to LV 142-148 (140x) Tanyi gear and so on. To start, teleport to the Seat of Chaos through respective Affinity teleporter. Once inside, locate

Their shops sell various Scriptures. Please be mindful when selecting Scriptures, as they cannot be refunded to the NPC, and only traded to other players. Some may not even be tradable.

To retain Refine level +9 or higher, use Yuan Crystals LV 9 (from the Marketplace or via lottos at Jade Exchange Girl) or trade for LV 10 from Affinity Master.
Failure to put in Yuan Crystal will destroy all refines or imbues.
Open Scriptures before use.

Conclusions

UPDATE: Lumen upgrade DOES NOT work yet for HG.

Right now, there are few ways to obtain Heaven Dragon Seals Heaven Dragon Seal.png:

To farm Wonderland Stone, new players can do the Yellow Mandatory (quickest way to Asc. 160 too) and Asc. players can kill the monsters in Inferna.
