Honyok-DN Posted July 6, 2019 Share Posted July 6, 2019 I noticed around the time of the p2w for legendary transforms event (which event I *did* take advantage of btw after having failed n number ancient transform combines to get even a single legendary transform that I never did get before that event) that the enchant success rates dropped significantly. Ultimate enchant stones failing on attempts to get +10 or above on ultimate gear are nowhere near what they were before that event. My experience since that time has been maybe 15% rate of success on any one such enchantment attempt, whereas before it seemed closer to 50/50 on your average day, and I also now see way less multi-level jumps in enchantment level on a successful attempt than I saw before. I get the sense that legendary stone enchantment success rate has also dropped between +4 to +9 where I tend to use them on ultimate pieces.. most of my ultimate pieces that are that level go up & down over & over now whereas before they tended to trend upward much more easily. I don't exactly live on the game, but I am able to play often enough to run around the map to finish all of the daily/weekly quests to acquire genesis crystals (as do a handful of friends/family that I play with), participate in most sieges and pvp instances that reward w/ enchant stones, etc., and we are all experiencing the same terrible rates of success in enchanting. We *want* to enjoy and continue to play Aion for the open world pvp, being the gluttons for NCSoft punishment that we are, but at this point we probably play mostly for the fun of hanging out with one another moreso than any consistent, legitimate enjoyment of the current state of open world pvp or the getting shat on by the NCSoft "congrats on failing another hard-earned ultimate stone enchant" RNG. Would be great if there were a "ultimate enchant stone guaranteed success" event or a "no dropping a level on failed enchant attempt no matter the quality of enchant stone" event. Also, bring back the player population and the abyss . My gear now: no exchange gear. Genesis ultimates on everything but rings, gloves and belt which are ultimate masterwork (waiting to promote those genesis legendary pieces till I get more of the bigger ultimate pieces plused up). Weapon and wings +15. Weapon enchanted fairly easily with the appropriate quality enchant stone i.e. ancient to +3, legendary to +9, ultimate to +10, ancient to +11, ultimate to +15 (and this *before* the p2w legendary transform event). Wings got the +14 with not too much difficulty (mostly also before the p2w legendary transform event), but +14 -> +15 took at least 9 ultimate enchant stone attempts before succeeding. Plume +12 (on attempt number 4 to get to +13 with ultimate stone). Bracelet +11. Top +11. Helmet +8 (cursed.. will not go to +9 and I won't use an ultimate on it before +9.. I lost count on the number of legendary stones I have thrown at it). Pants +7. Rest +3, 4 or 5. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
