Sometimes I feel that luck is a finite resourse when playing, specially when Refining/Enchanting.

 

It took me 1 try to get an Erde to +7 using normal Elu. (Nice luck)

It took me 20 tries to get a decent Malandgo enchant on that Erde (EA5/4). (Crappy luck)

It took me 3 HD Ori to get it to +10. (Nice luck)

It took me 48 HD Bradium to +11. (Crappy luck)

It took me 1 HD Bradium to +12. (Nice luck)

 

I feel I could write a thesis about luck in RO with all the stories I've lived and read. XD

Are you mean that after you tried 47 times you got +11 at the 48th times and +12 at the 49 times?

Yeah. It failed 47 times in a row, didn't notice when got to +11 and clicked by accident and got to +12. My sigh of relief was rather loud XD

You think? :v It felt rather crappy failing 47 times in a row and not getting a single EA enchant for over 15 times.

i spent 13 safe to 7's to get a +7 glorious cure wand.  Then spent 98 enriched elu to get it to +6.

 

Picked up a thanatos one hand staff immediately after and gave up on that cure wand.  Should have listened to helix fossil.  I have learned that its almost always cheaper for me to just buy the upgraded junk than to try to upgrade it myself.

yup sometimes refining goes  :p_cry:

out of 50 e.elu

 

i used 4 e.elu to upgrade my HBP to +9 from +7

used 30 e.elu that got my V.armor to +3  :wall:  i didn't have any safe certs left so i said WTH! YOLO! and regretted it.

the rest i used to +8 some goggles

annoying sometimes :p_sick:

but sometimes RNG goes Yay! :p_idea:

so most of the time, its far better o have someone else do the upgrades then buy from them. unless an item that you want is untradable

Ahh the valkyrie armor, indestructible even by the most powerful spells evil could conceive, but gets destroyed by the mighty hammer of Hollgrehenn.

No wonder it happens to be one of the most dangerous breaking weapons in existence when comboed correctly.

Err...Elven Bow is a level 3 weapon. Not sure why a cert was used.

And wait until you take over 100 ores to fail to get to +9 to call it bad luck.

I think the RNG after the server reset is against us. Prior to the mid-week reset, I did GREAT at upgrading. But after the reset, my equipment kept going to +3.
