    The new enchantment materials where actually calculated incorrectly by a lot of people. One speculation was that these limited resources would prevent P2W because the bottle neck would be Pure Magic. While this is true to some extent, there is a much more sinister problem.

    Due to this bottle neck you can't afford to not cron these attempts. You can't afford to delevel the Black Star because you would need to many Pure Magic to restore it each time.

    This also leaves a disgusting situation. If I want to create Orange tier equipment I'll need to cron the higher enchants. This means I can't gain any fail stacks from this. So where will the fail stacks come from? I already have all the equipment I need. I would need to enchant equipment I don't even need, and completely fail miserably to get the appropriate stacks and try to defeat a ridiculous RNG to succeed the Black Star.

    So my game mechanics have to be complete garbage to compensate for a few whales trying to P2W their way to the top? This is the best Pearl Abyss has to offer? It's no wonder Final Fantasy now has over 1 million subscribed customers while BDO struggles to remain in 5 digits even with most of them being AFK.

    Wrong. You can take all the time you please enchanting blackstar provided you already got an enchanted weapon, therefore you don't need at all to cron anything, because:

    The only advantage you get from BS over Kzarka is from PVE damage which doesn't help winning PVP fights, therefore owning an enchanted BS won't earn your "way to the top".

    Since all the premises are wrong, readers can safely ignore all the resulting propaganda.

    So you have all weapons and atmor at pen? Gz.
    If not, get a 2nd set and go for pen, there you go: gains and FS

    Makes a lot of sense. Spend Billions going for a PEN I don't need. And aside from the Sales value I don't even want because it would destroy the stack. And in order to actually increase the fail stack I would need to repeatedly destroy TET items. The system sounds flawless. I can't imagine why anyone would have complained about this over the years.

    you can just cron tri attemps on bs and do tet attempts without crons this way you can build a good tet pen stack

    Get your quest count up to 19200 and get those 3x100FS, and then work on the 30k quests for the 300 FS.....easy done.

    If you dont need pen you also font need a blackstar, cause then you stop at a certain point and dont eant to max out. Therefor this thread is as irrelevant as you are.

    Congratulations you just played yourself

    I think in time the pure magic wont be much of a bottleneck.

    Ive had a couple as drops grinding, node is generating them nicely, and we only just got it.

    With a level 1 artisan papu it takes about 14 hours to get 1 mass of pure magic, guess if it is at level 30 it will be around 12 hours. So you roughly get 14 black stones in a week without doing anything. So this is not really a bottleneck considering this is bdo where progress takes month anyways.

    You also need to consider that a TET BS is pretty much equal to a PEN kzarka just with a higher chance to get it ( at 116 FS it is about 6.7% vs 3.48% if I recall correctly).

    And finally you probably still have a lot of gear to got for PEN to build the FS with anyways.

    That being said, getting it to TRI is not that much of an issue with high enough FS. I used an 83 fs for it which gave me something about 30% chance to succeed, so better than getting a kzarka to TET.

    So I don't think the BS enhancing is that bad if you take your time.

    If only it was a 100% drop per worker cycle!

    So far I've had a lvl 30 Papu on that node, and out of the 30 traces i have, I have 11 Pure masses.
    Sure It's not an issue to me as I still haven't had the starting item drop form the 12 rifts i've done, and am currently waiting for more rifts to open, but just wanted to point out the drop rate is looking like about 1 every 3 cycles. I know my 30 cycles is a bit low for a real drop rate average but it's a start.

    My worker takes about 11hrs. I did look at sending a goblin from Calpheon or Epheria, but found the cp cost to high when I already had a link from Grana to fadus for grinding.

    The drop rate of the node is 100% for 1x trace of Death and one other (i cant recall name sorry), then the extra ~30% chance of the1x pure mass.

    Hope that helps anyone looking into that node.

    I agree with all of this. one parts needs a bit of context though.

    It's roughly 12 hrs with a 30 papu for a chance to get a Pure Magic. After a couple of weeks running my guy is averaging 68%.

    Still not bad and totally way more than I needed to TET my BS. With proper failstacks it only took 5 get it to TRI.


    Forgot to mention. +14 and +15 were the real pain.

    *No Artisans or Costumes were harmed in the making of my BS.

    Yeah that sounds about right. I guess to be fair its a fairly high CP investment too.

    Ok, good to know. Only had it running for a few days and so far I always got 1 but guess I was just lucky.
    And it also just took me only the 4 ttones from the quests to get to TRI so it really isn't that bad to enhance so far.
    Probably will Cron the TET tries nonetheless thought...

    Also lets not forget:

    1 Rift piece and one Black Claw= 5 Mass of Pure Magic.

    So even the desperate person could get 5 for around 200m silver. Which isn't bad, especially for endgame geared folks

    Not really.
    I think the chance is around 40% or less to get 1.
    Got the node 2 weeks ago. Last time i checked, ~3days ago, i had 12.

    Real bottleneck here are crons(costumes ofc) and/or failstacks depending on which approach to go for pen bs u opt for.

    Yep, it's 3600 crons per PEN attempt.

    Better strategy if u feel lucky might be cronning tet attempts and clicking pen normally. Does require tet stacks tho. In any case, luck casino whichever path u choose.
