[Guide] Items - Enhance, Graft, Certify, Seal, Rank, & More
[Updated: July 26]
Ok, so there's quite a few NPCs offered in SB that allow you to do all kinds of stuff with all kinds of items. It can be confusing at first, or you may not even realize they all exist. This guide covers:
Please note that all NPCs talked about in this guide can be found at each major city: Enocia, Bitterstone Base, and a few at Caergat
- Certification/Performance Authorization
- Item Ranking Registration
- Pet Datachip Synthesis/Transformation
1. Certification/Authorization NPC - Items With No Stats
2. Salvage NPC - Items You Don't Need
It's not uncommon that you will find an item like the following that just says "Item" and has no stats:
Don't worry, this item is not useless! It's just an uncertified item and you have to get it certified aka Performance Authorization.
To certify an item all you have to do is talk to the Certification NPC.
You will need a Laser Scanner as well:
Left - For Certifying Rare (Blue) Items
Right - For Certifying Unique (Gold) Items
The Laser Scanner for Rare Item Certification can be bought at any General Item Merchant or Point Vending Machine inside the Battlegrounds for 1g.
The Laser Scanner for Unique Item Certification can be obtained from Treasure Crates, the Item Mall, and Auction House/Other Players.
Rare Laser Scanners can also be obtained through Quests and the Battlegrounds.

3. Enhancement NPC - Adding Stats to Items
The Salvage NPC will allow you to dissemble equipment you don't want to produce useful items such as Passcard Packs, Hypovial Packs, Enhancement Shards, and other various items.
You can not Salvage General (Gray) or Magic (Green) items. You can only Salvage Rare (Blue).
Salvage NPC Interface:
4. Sealing NPC - Adding Even More Stats
Enhancing/Upgrading/Fortifying a piece of equipment or bike will add additional stats. (Enhancing a bike will add Speed.)
Rare (Blue) items are fairly easy to come by so it's recommended you save your required Enhancement Tools and not use them for Magic (Green) items.
In order to Enhance an item you will need an Enhancement Tool (Sliver/Shard/Gem):
Red/Crimson is used for Enhancing Weapons and Bikes.
Green/Emerald is used for Enhancing Armor.
Both Rows, Left to Right:
1. Base Stardust Sliver - For Stages 1-3
2. Base Stardust Shard - For Stages 4-6
3. Base Stardust Gem - For Stages 7-10
They can be obtained from various locations such as Quests, Battlegrounds and Mobs.
Enhancing an item will destroy any item you are using in the enhancement process EXCEPT for the piece of equipment you are enhancing.
Any items Enhanced to +6 and above have a chance of downgrading during enhancement.
Enhancement NPC Interface:
Extra - Used to add items that will increase the Enhancement's success.
Narak Relic - Enhances Success rate by 5%; Can be stacked up to 4x.
Obtainable from the Item Mall, other players, Auction House, World Bosses, or Battlegrounds.
Blessed Narak Relic - Enhances Success rate by 6%; Can be stacked up to 4x.
Obtainable from the Item Mall, other players, and Auction House.
Safe Guard - Used to add an item that will prevent a piece of equipment from downgrading on failure.
From Left to Right:

5. Cosmetologist/Grafting NPC - Changing Your Gear's Physical Appearance
Sealing items is a nifty way to add some more stats to any piece of equipment.
When you Seal an item you CAN NOT:
- Trade it.
- Enhance it.
- Dissemble it.
- Pretty much anything except for Randomization.
However, you CAN Unseal it whenever you'd like. To Unseal an item all you have to do is talk to the same NPC and insert your item then click Unseal.
Unsealing takes 24 hours but you can still use the item during this time.

6. Item Ranking Registration NPC - Showing Off Your Epic Item
The Grafting NPC allows you to change the appearance of your equipment if you like the stats but do not like how to equipment looks when worn.
Grafting is limited to Shoes, Suits, Gloves, and Weapons because these are the only equipment pieces with a physical appearance.
The items you are grafting must be of the same style and class.
You will need a Grafting Tool as well:
Left - For Grafting stats from Rare (Blue) Items
Right - For Grafting stats from Unique (Gold) Items
Grafting tools can be obtained through the Item Mall, other players, and Auction House.
Grafting NPC Interface:
Use Items - Used for the item with the desired stats.
Vanity Items - Used for the item with the desired appearence.
Tool - Used for the required Grafting Tool.

7. Randomization NPC
This NPC allows you to register and unregister your awesomely enhanced item into the Item Ranking system.
The Over-All Ranking Interface is currently unavailable so this system has little point atm.
Item Ranking Registration NPC Interface:
[ Before Ranking | After Ranking ]
Randomization will give your item 2 new random stats.
Hexweaves x3 is required for Randomization.
