Cosmetic Fusion System Update Guide

December 2016

 

Fusing your favorite costumes has just gotten a lot easier! In this Cosmetic Fusion System Update, you can decide what you would like the outcome of your fusion to be. All cosmetic items, including back, face accessories, head/hat items, and body costumes are fused using the same tablet. Use this tablet to combine any normal cosmetic items together to create the type of costume you need!

 

Major Changes

  • All cosmetic items now use the same tablet. No more Costume Fusion Tablet and Accessory Fusion Tablet distinctions.
  • Existing Costume and Accessory Fusion Tablets are automatically updated to the new Cosmetic Fusion Tablet and have the same function as these new tablets!
  • Existing Rune Maintain Slates have automatically been updated to the new Rune Fusion Charm and have the same function as these new charms!
  • Two of any normal costume item can now be used in fusion. No more waiting to use two back accessories to fuse a new one!

 

New Fusion Window

Right click the Cosmetic Fusion Tablet to gain access to the Fusion Tablet window.

 

New Tablet

KBtYir0.jpg
Cosmetic Fusion Tablet: Use this tablet to fuse two cosmetic items together for a chance at more runeholes or a random costume! Use special charms to influence fusion for a special result!
 
What it Does: Right click this tablet to open the Fusion Tablet window. This tablet is required for every fusion attempt and is consumed upon fusing the items.

 
New Charms

x2tFuAB.jpg
Appearance Fusion Charm: Use this charm with a Cosmetic Fusion Tablet in order to retain the appearance of the selected costume!
 
What it Does: Allows you to retain the costume type, but does not transfer over things like color dyes. For example, use this charm to make sure your Octopus Head stays an Octopus Head after fusion. When you use the charm, both costume items will have a blue glow around them:

Once you've selected a costume to retain the appearance of, it will glow with a new border:

You can select either costume item to retain the appearance of. This charm can be used with Rune Fusion Charm. 
 
IBQDTrU.jpg
Rune Fusion Charm: Use this charm with a Cosmetic Fusion Tablet in order to retain your runes and have a chance at more runeholes!
 
What it Does: This charm allows you to preserve your existing runes and runeholes in one costume item. When used with an Appearance Fusion Charm, the runes that will be preserved will be the same as the costume that you select to preserve the appearance of. Existing runes will be transferred over. You do not need to have runeholes punched or filled in the costume to have the runeholes transfer. This charm provides a BONUS chance to receive additional runeholes. 
 
DnngLMt.jpg
Magic Fusion Charm: Use this charm with a Cosmetic Fusion Tablet in order to have a chance to get a Cheny cosmetic item! This charm is only available through the Cheny Shop. 
 
What it Does: This charm allows you to use two normal costume items to have a chance at a Cheny item. Cheny cosmetic items, such as Kafra Ruby or Swag, cannot be used in normal fusion. This charm increases the chance that you will receive one of these magic costume items in fusion. This charm cannot be combined with other charms. 
 
X8Jebz0.jpg
Head Fusion Charm:  Use this charm with a Cosmetic Fusion Tablet in order to receive a head slot item!
 
What it Does: This charm allows you to combine any two normal cosmetic items in order to create a new head slot item. The head slot items are the upper head, or hat, slot. This charm can be combined with Rune Fusion Charm to increase your chance at receiving runeholes or to transfer existing runes/runeholes to a new type of costume. 
 
 
cFCDFbS.jpg
Lower Face Fusion Charm: Use this charm with a Cosmetic Fusion Tablet in order to receive a lower face slot item!
 
What it Does: This charm allows you to combine any two normal cosmetic items in order to create a new lower face slot item. This charm can be combined with Rune Fusion Charm to increase your chance at receiving runeholes or to transfer existing runes/runeholes to a new type of costume. 
 
 
F51lh2W.jpg
Face Fusion Charm:  Use this charm with a Cosmetic Fusion Tablet in order to receive a face slot item!
 
What it Does: This charm allows you to combine any two normal cosmetic items in order to create a new (middle) face slot item. This charm can be combined with Rune Fusion Charm to increase your chance at receiving runeholes or to transfer existing runes/runeholes to a new type of costume.

What it Does: This charm allows you to combine any two normal cosmetic items in order to create a new top slot item. The top slot is the chest or body costume item. This charm can be combined with Rune Fusion Charm to increase your chance at receiving runeholes or to transfer existing runes/runeholes to a new type of costume.

 

f4U3WWD.jpg

Back Fusion Charm:  Use this charm with a Cosmetic Fusion Tablet in order to receive a back slot item!
 
What it Does: This charm allows you to combine any two normal cosmetic items in order to create a new back slot item.  This charm can be combined with Rune Fusion Charm to increase your chance at receiving runeholes or to transfer existing runes/runeholes to a new type of costume.

PVP Attack and Defense Formula Update

We've adjusted how the PvP Attack and Reduction is caculated in order to help balance PvP and reduce the stat creep in the game. Previously, you would get a flat, linear increase to your PvP Attack and Reduction with each new rune and hone you were able to put onto your gear. This worked out well at level 50 when there was only so many PvP runeholes. Since the introduction of honing and purple runeholes, this availability increased by a lot without any change to the PvP stat. We are introducing a new way of calculating the stat that will give it diminishing returns if its stacked too high.

Here is how the new stat system should work:

PNdBHfE.png

 

 

This should allow you to get more PvP stats in the beginning, but you will reach a point where adding more will not be as effective anymore. You can still choose to stack it if PvP is your thing, you just won't be able to get at or above 100%.

Santa's Wrapping Paper has been stolen!

In order to celebrate the Yule Festival, Santa Claus is busy preparing gift boxes for children.

Unfortunately, after a sudden surprise attack from monsters, all of Santa's gifts lost their wrapping paper!

In order to assist Santa, help him get rid of the monsters that attacked him and take back the stolen Wrapping Papers.

 

You can donate Wrapping Paper, or exchange with certain items from Santa Claus in Prontera (next to Myunel).

If donated Wrapping Papers reach a certain amount, Santa will start to sell Upgraded Buff Items!

 

Santa's Exchange List:

This is one I discovered. Basically, Easy mode was restricted so under-50s couldn't do it.. but Normal and Hard could be done by lower levels.

What happens if you fuse without any charms in these new tablets? Will fusing 2 mid faces result in a guaranteed random mid face, same as before? 

 

SO much to do... awesome HHB contents, santa porings, way better PvP balance (I think this means the death of stacking inc/redu inside gears, and mix inc/redu being really great). What does the lutie piece NPC actually sell? Can we get the christmas wreath title again?

 

If the seedrune/refinement/card refinement changes are also set for this december then holy hell this is an awesome month for RO2.

This is fixed price. Sale price would be lower, of course.

D'oh! I'll fix it.

Just fusing two mid face won't guarantee a mid face. Using a slot charm for whatever slot you want will. All accessories and costumes are within the same fusion now and not separated.

 

Yes, the titles from before. We merged the 2014 and 2015 events into one big one, so both can be done.

 

And yeah, we're working on seedrune/card refinement stuff now in hopes of getting it out December 19.

Quick question...

 

Aren't INC players going to just stack 60-70% inc then stack INT/STR runes to get more damage? And redu players have no option for doing this since +50/80 VIT doesn't exist (why?). There's probably a sweet spot to be found where building int/str gives more benefits than more inc, right?

Rune Fusion Charm. It keeps runes and has a chance to get more runeholes if used, and is pretty considerable from testing.

Sweet spot seemed to be around 45% for each, but they can continue stacking after that, they just won't get as effective a stat from each new rune/hone.

nono what I'm saying is that damage output is based on both inc and your int/str (attack/magic power). Not talking about where inc/redu meets each other at 45% between new and old formulas here. So after a certain amount of inc, if people want to gain even higher damage it's probably best to stack int/str to deal the massive damage that they're used to. tl;dr won't people just get a certain amount of inc and then go int/str for the rest to get the same damage as they have now?
