Fortification System

This is a system that you level up your weapons, hats and clothes by fortifying them, and the higher the fortifying level is, the greater the risk will be, but the attribute of the items will also be higher after you succeed. The fortification can be done only if you have the energy stone and material for the fortification. The materials for the fortification include Amulet and Divine Amulet. The Amulet 25% can add 25% chance of your current success rate, and the Amulet 15% can add 15% chance of your current success rate. The Divine Amulet can help you keep the level of your voucher articles when they fail in fortifying.

Every fortification can add 10% damage of your weapon or the 10% shield of your clothes/hat, the percentage of basic damage and shield improved by different fortifying level is as follows:

Fortification Level
Increased Damage/Shield Percentage
Lv1 fortification
Lv2 fortification
Lv3 fortification
Lv4 fortification
Lv5 fortification
Lv6 fortification
Lv7 fortification
Lv8 fortification
Lv9 fortification
Lv10 fortification
Lv11 fortification
Lv12 fortification

Fortification tips/ merhods
IGN : SuperMayhem
Server : Cerberus

Today I will be showing you how to succeed at fortification of equipment nice and quickly and maybe first time .

Fail Synthesization method : Fail Synthesizing equipment at least 10 times ( with a lv4 or lv5 syn stone ) , because the system has just seen you haver failed a process +10 times , it will be a higher chance of the system letting you succeed now .

Counting Method : Count the amount of % there is of successing to fortify , for example : if success rate is 20.3 % , count for 20 seconds and if success rate is 8.1 % , count for 8 seconds and etc .

Now a few tips :

  • It's best to fortify at a time when people are less likely to fortify or there are less people on in general . So the best time section for whatever time zone would be 23:00 - 05: 00 , because not as many people are on in that time section .

    If you are going to buy 15 % or 25 % amulet in the shop , do not !
    The system will not link it with your fortification , so buy amulets trough armory !

    If you see someone suceed +7 - +12 , do NOT attempt to fortify , it is very likely that you will fail .

    And remember , never keep trying !

DDtank Guide

1.Go to armory from either the homepage or through your bag. will need energy stones to upgrade your equipment
3.all equipment up to Lv4 does not need a divine amulet. above lv4 divine is needed
4.once you have fortified your equipment to lv3,9,12 pearl holes will appear is advised to save up lots of energy stones so you can spam them which gives you more chance of success time to fortify is when there is less people on-line in the server alot of synthesis/meturlagy so you'll have a better chance of succeeding fortification
7.25% and 15% amulets help increase success rate (best to buy them in armory rather than shop)

Tips for Saving Metals

Fortification for Beginners
This guide is mostly for beginners.

- I know you're eager to buy those level 5 energy stones, but before you do take a second look at those prices:


So here's your options for getting an ES Lv 5:
Option 1: Just buy an ES5 for 30 medals.
Option 2: Buy 4 ES4's and use metallurgy to make an ES5: 7 x 4 = 28 medals.

I know what you're thinking: Well, what's the success rate for metallurgy for ES5?
Well, here's your answer:

So my point is, save yourself some medals and buy 4 ES4's instead of 1 ES5.

Also, to the less experienced players out there- I suggest focusing on saving up medals and fortifying your items to up your power instead of focusing on gaining exp. Why? When you join sports fights, you'll be stronger than the average players at your level. It's no fun being a high level with low power, trust me. You'll have a very low success rate by the end of your playing career. This means using your metals solely for energy stones, not exp potions.

I know saving 2 metals may not sound like much, but it really adds up. And although focusing on power and not leveling may not sound too fun, you'll be thanking yourself for doing it later on.

So there's my short spiel on metals and beginner's tips. Bye guys and have fun! ^^
