Cost of Upgrading Gear

Contents

Upgrades

  • Items with Gems embedded cost 33.3% more to upgrade than non-infused items.
  • Items infused with Special Metals cost 33.3% more to upgrade than non-infused items.
  • Items with both Gems and Special Metals cost 66.6% more to upgrade than non-infused items.

Infusing Metals and/or Gems

When infusing/embedding a Gem or Metal into a Weapon or Armor, you'll be charged a price if the item is at or above +1. Here's a simple explanation of how this cost is determined:


Non-Infused and Single-Infused Items

The price of infusing a "bare" (non-infused item), as well as an item that has ONLY a Gem OR a Metal infused, is determined by a simple math equation:

  • cumulative upgrade cost * 0.35 / 0.75 = cost to infuse

To explain in words, the cost to infuse EITHER a Metal OR a Gem into a bare item, or an item that already has ONE infusion, is 75% of 35% of the cumulative upgrade cost.

Example: You'd like to infuse a Gem into a +19 Dagger that has no Metal infusion. Based on the tables below, the Cumulative Cost of upgrading to Level 19 is 88,800 Gold. Look at the equation below, based on the explanation given above:

  • 88,800 * 0.35 / 0.75 = 41,440 (cost to infuse).


Double-Infusing a Non-Infused Item

The price for infusing BOTH a Gem AND Metal into a "bare" (non-infused item), at the same time, is determined by another simple math equation:

  • cumulative upgrade cost * 0.70 / 0.75 = cost to double infuse

To explain in words, the cost to infuse BOTH a Metal AND Gem into a "bare" (non-infused) item is 75% of 70% of the cumulative upgrade cost.

Example: You'd like to infuse a Gem AND Metal into a +19 Tunic that has no infusions. Based on the tables below, the Cumulative Cost of upgrading to Level 19 is 88,800 Gold. Look at the equation below, based on the explanation given above:

  • 88,800 * 0.70 / 0.75 = 82,880 (cost to double-infuse).

Other Notes

When +27 upgrade were introduced, "partial upgrades" were also made possible, meaning that instead of trying to save 2,215,000 gold to upgrade directly from +25 to +26, you're now able to upgrade your item from +25 to +25.1, which costs 205,000. This means that upgrading your weapons is much easier compared to the previous method used.

Also, when +27 upgrades were released, the cost of upgrading gear took on a simpler approach that does NOT depend on a weapons' wear percentage. To put this simply: a +20 1% Dagger will upgrade at the same cost as a +20 300% Dagger. Same holds true for all weapons, armor, including Limited Edition weapons and armor.
