Refinement System

From Helheim

How to refine

Any refinement NPC or refinement material such as Elunium, Oridecon and such will open the Refinement UI.
You can only refine using the UI on Helheim.


How to ?

  • Refinement UI

Drag the item into the Refinement UI and select the material's you wish to use.



The UI will tell you the percentage of success.


  • Refinement chance



You can select to use a catalyst Blacksmith Blessing. [ The catalyst protects your item from downgrading or breaking during failure ] It's consumed regardless of success or failure.

  • Red = Catalyst



Afterwards, click refine.

Certificates

You can use certain Certificates such as +7 / +8 / +9 or other certificates to instantly refine from +0 or any other refinement.
Can be found at @go 0, it's the right building.
Talk to Refine Master in there.

Certificates can be obtained through the following methods:
