    Most people don't attempt pen without cron after 130-150 FS. So they build up to that and then cron rotate tet pieces until something pops or try 1 weapon/armor at a time starting with highest value items 1st of course every other week or however long it takes them to build up to do a good 4-5 attempts or something.

    It's just too much of a money saver and time saver and is irrelevant after those FS amounts to keep trying to go higher for pen weapon/armor honestly.

    I just go till it pops, but at 150 I’ll stop and make a new stack for my offhands and keep that stack for black star. And the free 300fs we’ll get one day from questing (30.000 finished) i’ll Save for pen black star. Till then just save up crons. Black star too expensive to **** around with once you have tet. Rest I’ll just roulette. Don’t care.

    Still doing the old school way.
    Have multiple boss gear, and trying to enhance it 2/3times per month. So far well.. No PEN. 187fs actually, just reached 2 more 100fs+ tet fails. I'll keep theses 2, just in case new accessories come for the end of the year with the new area.
    Edit: I don't think i ll try with cron. Money is for another goal right now, 4lvl caphras all my boss gear. 512caphras each.. After that, well I could try PEN with Cron

    Cron Weapons/Armor is probably the worst way to progress because it doesn't create failstack. In repetitive sequence you are losing far more than what you are trying to make. Especially if you have plans with V or TET accessories. Cost, equity and the percentage of a 100 failstacks with a 1 billion + accessory is a GOOD gamble. In a gambling sense and base calculated odds you are winning 1 out of 3-4ish tapping a tet crescent and probable end product.

    Again this is from a degenerate math-wiz gambling/poker addict. Also the failstacks are applicable with the new BlackStar weapons.

    1% - 2% - 3% makes a lot of difference with base odds. Oh and casinos normally have 1-5% edge on any player. .3% against advance players.

    The only way for Cron to be "efficient" is when you bought it off the pearl market. $ speaks volume. Or using it on a T9 awakening.

    Disclaimer: I'm using calculated odds base on B.S. window, no guarantees cough, it's gambling. Market prices bound to change.

    You don't want to PEN attempt and Caphra. The most efficient way is to choose either. You will get burned by trying to enchant an already Caphra'd item.

    They need to fix the disparity, there are far too many people that get "lucky" and far to many that just get totally shat on by rng on the exact opposite end of the spectrum.

    And they all but confirmed they fck with rng in the game. Its just a simple dice roll or they wouldnt have said what they said about it during the keynote.
