Enhancement chances are way too LOW

    But then all you would need to do is keep feeding it stones and keep using memory fragments to repair durability until it pops PEN.
    If you use the system you just explained, everyone would be running around in full PEN in a few months.
    What would be the point of that system?

    Now, if you want to make it so TRI/TET/PEN have an enhancement timer of 1day/7days/14days per attempt and a low random chance to downgrade I can see the point of that a lot more.

    You fail, you have to wait 1day/7days/14days before you can make another attempt, and there is a (fair) low chance of downgrading and it's not automatic like it currently is.

    First, what would be wrong with everyone having full pen in months?

    Secondly, I don't care if the enhance rate for everything is 5% because I can deal with that.

    I have played games where getting BiS gear takes years. Literally, years. The reason I had no problem with that is because I didn't farm for 4 months only to lose 8 months of farming for trying to improve

    With current BDO enhancing, you take your gear to the casino and bet on it. If you lose, you lose progress and the house almost always wins

    Basically, I would be perfectly fine with super low rate of enhance as long as I don't lose my current work

    90% of BDO would agree with that

    The remaining 10% are just masochists

    This is the stupidity that seems to afflict lots of BDO players

    No one wants to play another WOW clone. lF I want to play WOW, I will go play it

    What I don't want is do is to gamble to progress. If I want to play a casino I will go to the casino

    But tools like you will say you don't like to progress quick then turn around and spend tons of real money to progress quick lol

    You probably don't know how stupid that is

    Okay, after perpetually failing duo backup for the whole past year I'm going back to the game, do a DUO rulette with my 13x70fs stacks and then I'll trash my current TRI set with all fs that survive it. Thanks for motivation for one more "i've-changed-my-mind-and-won't-ever-come-back-to-the-game" push.

    I just dont care, that game isnt fair, irl rich = ig rich.

    Sorry dude not my fault. I wanted to pvp they said i had to be more "invested" hahaha.

    What i find even more dumb is the fact that some of us are writting books trying to explain what is fair and fun knowing nobody gives a fk except other fanbois and their conscience.

    Keep it rolling nothing will change, money is King.

    Now its up to you whether you leave or not.

    To balance a system with no downgrade or blowing up accessory, they would need to reduce chances to 1% of current or even less.

    300fs from PEN, thats just 50 fails. Without downgrade we are talking 50 Concentrated hard/sharp and 500 memory fragments. How many failstacks above 300 have you see (screenshot included) and how many of those started PEN attempts below 80?

    man that's just the type of thinking that brought BDO down to where it is...people like you fail to understand that BDO has nothing to do with time invested and everything to with lottery, most ppl are just afk all day not even playing the game and putting unessasry stress on the servers it is also this way because devs are lazy to create new endgame WOW is a true endless progression as BDO is constant regression and progression back to where you were. on top of that blizzard makes more weekly then BDO does each quarter, as a result a much better gam,e i dont play WOW but WOW is a much better mmorpg then BDO in its current state... balance is nonexistant gear gap is laughable, top streamers are quitting, and then there's ppl like you... diehard fans in denial. some people have lives, family and cant spend 2 months for 1 pen. so have fun playing with the whales and other wellfare bottom life bottom of the food chain human beings.

    i've been gone for a while now, about the same time Lacari left... i come here once and a while check the patch notes in the hopes they fixed the game, but nope... it's even worst now have fun with your archeage 5.0 game. BTW more ppl stream runescape, and minecraft then BDO on twitch that says alot enjoy a game that is but a shadow of what it was in 2016.

    For a grinding game that is more than 3 years old, its not doing to bad on Twitch, 30ish games that do better and of those its only RuneScape that can be called a grinding game.

    So 2nd best viewer count of the grinding games, BDO is sure doing bad!

    The problem with everyone having full pen in months is that this game is mostly centered around gear levels.
    Having them all up to pen in a hand full of months would cause the game to collapse and many to leave.

    I am interested to hear how those games you mentioned where it takes years to get BIS actually worked gear wise?

    1. Keep your goals, but take your time, you don't need pen to do what you want.

    2. Enjoy the game on the way.

    3. Enhancing can be steady progress:
    - Bypass the downgrade by not using the gear you have equipped (swap out gear as you make something better).
    - It takes more time to acquire but its the way to go for steady progress and less gamble.
    - Goal to build failstacks for next tier: expect or even want fails, success is bonus.

    Im thankful the weapons don't blow up, and we get failstacks.
