You can talk to any Item Merchant, Weapon Merchant, Armor Merchant, or Vending Machine and right click the items to sell them.


Yw royal ^-^


Also, updated the guide to reflect current content regarding Enhancement and Grafting.

This needs a sticky or something. Always a pain once it moves down the list to find it again.

The Gameplay Guide Index post is stickied and it's listed there if you ever loose it. =)
It's under the General category (Items - Certification, Enhancement, Sealing, Grafting, Amplification, & more).

Hi, I was just wondering if you could update the guide. Because it's misleading new players on the enhancing success rate atm.

"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."

Many new players thinks it adds a direct 5% to the success rate. E.g at +10, 1% + 20%, which makes success rate of +10 = 21%.

Which isn't true. It actually adds 20% of 1%, which increases +10 success rate by 0.2% chance, giving 1.2% at +10. Thought you could make it more clear so players won't be misleded by this fact. Sorry if any offence is taken! >.<

Are you actually sure about this? Seems kinda off when you see people actually being able to get to + 10 with such a low rate like that Rolling Eyes

Where did you get that percentage from? Your own observation?

Not possible. If indeed this is true, it defies logic. This basically implies that before you use a Narak Relic, you have 0% chance to achieve the X% of success rate. In other words, you have a 100% underlying failure rate to achieve any enhancement at any level. This doesn't make sense.

I still hold onto the logic of Narak Relics providing a direct % increase to the enhancement success rate. So, to get a +10 eqp, with 4 x Narak Relics, you have 21% success rate. Period.

Re: [Guide] Items - Enhance, Graft, Certify, Seal, Rank, & More

[Updated: April 9]

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:

    1. Certification/Performance Authorization
    2. Salvaging
    3. Enhancement
    4. Sealing
    5. Grafting/Cosmetologist
    6. Item Ranking Registration
    7. Randomization
    8. Amplification
    9. Synthesis/Transformation
    10. Pet Datachip Synthesis/Transformation


Please note that all NPCs talked about in this guide can be found at each major city: Enocia, Bitterstone Base, and a few at Caergate.

1. Certification/Authorization NPC - Items With No Stats
      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.
        Scanners can also be obtained through Quests and the Battlegrounds.

      Certification NPC Interface:



      [ Before Certification | After Certification ]



2. Salvage NPC - Items You Don't Need
      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) and Unique (Gold).

      Salvage NPC Interface:




3. Enhancement NPC - Adding Stats to Items
      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.

      Safe Guard - Used to add an item that will prevent a piece of equipment from downgrading on failure.



        From Left to Right:
          1. Safeguard Stardust 6 - Prevents a +6 item from downgrading to +5 while attempting to upgrade it to +7
          2. Safeguard Stardust 7 - Prevents a +7 item from downgrading to +6 while attempting to upgrade it to +8
          3. Safeguard Stardust 8 - Prevents a +8 item from downgrading to +7 while attempting to upgrade it to +9
          4. Safeguard Stardust 9 - Prevents a +9 item from downgrading to +8 while attempting to upgrade it to +10
        Obtainable from the Item Mall, other players, or Auction House.

      Empty Slot - Unknown.

      [ Before Enhancement | After Enhancement ]

      *Controlling Possible Enhancement Stats

      Success Rates:
      +1: 80%
      +2: 75%
      +3: 70%
      +4: 65%
      +5: 30%
      +6: 20%
      +7: 15%
      +8: 5%
      +9: 3%
      +10: 1%



4. Sealing NPC - Adding Even More Stats
      Sealing items is a nifty way to add some more stats to any piece of equipment.

      When you Seal an item, those item:
        - can not be trade.
        - Prevent breaking from enhancing after+6
        - Can not be salvaged
        - Can not be amplificated
        - Can not be Grafted
        - 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.

      Sealing NPC Interface:



      [ Before Sealing | After Sealing ]



5. Cosmetologist/Grafting NPC - Changing Your Gear's Physical Appearance
      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.

      [ Interface Example ]



6. Item Ranking Registration NPC - Showing Off Your Epic Item
      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:
