The blacksmith is one of the major NPC 's in the game. It has the possibility to upgrade items and make it a higher (+). Upgradeable items include: weapons, armour, jewelry, etc. Each (+) level improves the item's properties, for example: a armor's defense would increase. The higher the (+), the better the item is.
However, it is also possible for Blacksmith to break your items. When an item fails it is lost forever. The possibility of failing raises with the (+) of an item
is the most dreaded phase in whole world of Metin. Those are the words that are pronounced by the Blacksmith if your item is broken during upgrade.
- '" You failed " '
Up to +4 you only need Yang to upgrade an item. +5 and higher the Blacksmith often needs additional items and Yang to upgrade. Additional items are items such as Bear Gall, Piece of Gem and so on. Many of these items have (+) versions of them as well. Some of these items are quite rare and can therefore be very valuable.
There are many so-called tips on the Blacksmith, but they all have no basis.
Whether the weapon was used, how your current prediction of the old woman is lucky (only affects the probability Yang drop), and all the other voodoo stuff does not matter.
If you want to prevent a valuable item from being destroyed in upgrading, you can use one of the following items:
The only exception is for the Scroll of war, but a failed upgrade can lead to a lower level of the item.
If you click the Blacksmith he will describe you how to create the Forging Manual and the Dragon Scroll.
For the Forging Manual you need a Stone of the Blackmith, which can be purchased only in the item shop, and a Blessing Scroll. For the Dragon Scroll you need Magic Iron Ore, located also in the item shop.
The improvement of an item has a certain probability. These chances are unknown. To obtain this knowledge a large test would need to be done with hundreds of items which is very costly. It is known however that the value depends on the target level. At level +7, you are likely to fail than an the same item to level +5, but it is even possible to destroy the item when upgrading to +1 </p>
Let's say the probability is 40% that succeed in improving. If you then try it with a hundred items, you are left with about 40.
The guild blacksmith should be 10% be better. What that means exactly, but we know not. This can either be that he ruins 10% less items or the success rate is 10% higher. Since the guild blacksmith is five times as expensive, it is worth while only for objects with good bonuses or stones, or the additional items you need (Each gemstone, pearl, etc.) are rare and expensive.
Therefore, the ultimate and only true Tip
If you for example want to bring something to +7, it only makes sense to improve if you can compensate for the loss. If you have 2 items up to +6 of similar items you can try to upgrade 1 and retain 1. If it fails, just bring back another to +6 and then try it again, etc.
For items with a good bonuses or stones, you should go to the guild blacksmith and upgrade "safely". What is "safe" means anyone can make his own risk analysis. A measure is what the bonus brings in comparison to the improvement of the item. You should probably stop at least at +5 if you have no adequate substitute. Then recommended the use of a Blessing Scroll One must remember, however, that if you need a lot of scrolls because the item still can possibly be lowered in level.
Many complain about the blacksmith. However, it is a necessary element of the so-called Mudflation decrease. Ultimately, the game would be even less interesting when all players have their complete equipment at +9.
At a certain level the weapons and armor will glitter and shine, depending on the number of slots for stones:
The higher the level of item the more it begins to shimmer.
- With 1 slot for a stone the item glitters at +9
- With 2 slots for stones the item glitters at +8, green+blue at +9
- With 3 slots for stones the item glitters at +7, green+blue at +8, red at +9
In addition there is the guild blacksmiths, whose nature and position depend on the kingdom.
The guild blacksmiths are specialized, there is the Weaponsmith, the Armorer and Jeweler. The latter also makes shoes. They should be "10% better" than the normal, but are also five times as expensive. Users from a foreign kingdom again need to pay three times the normal cost.
When you are in doubt it might be worth while to create an account in the other realm to exchange with.
There is a special blacksmith on the fifth floor of the Demon Tower, which is specialized in a random field (Weaponsmith, Armourer or Jeweler). He does not need additional items to increase the weapon / armour / etc., only Yang. The costs and success rates similar to those of ordinary village blacksmith. Every player on the plane has only one attempt to upgrade an item once. You can not use the Blessing Scroll, Scroll of the Dragon or Scroll of War here.
This NPC is not needed for any quests.
