Rune Enchants

Index

Runes can be enchanted to change their grade, slot count, color and the link locations.
The appropriate essences are required for enchanting Runes.
Mileage is accumulated based on the number of enchantment attempts with Rune Birth Essence. If 6 Links are not attained until the maximum mileage, a guaranteed 6 Link Enchant feature will become activated.
- If 6 Links do appear while enchanting, the accumulated mileage changes to 0.
- The enchantment count only increases upon getting the guaranteed 6 Links.
(Mileage increases with the enchantment count.)

For Birth/Link/Color Essences during Rune Enchant, the Repeat Settings can be used to 'automatically enchant 'until the desired slot count, color and link locations are attained.
When enchanting Runes that are already equipped, the DPS change can be viewed in real-time as the Link Slot count/Color/Locations are changed.

Rune Slot Enchant

Rune Candor Essence can be used to enchant the slot of a Skill Rune.
When Rune Candor Essence is used on a Skill Rune, a random slot is changed into 'White'.
- White Rune Slots can be connected to Link Runes all colors.
- Based on the level of the White Rune Slot, the linked Link Rune's level is applied at an increased level.
- If different Skill Runes with White Slots are equipped with a Link Rune in between, the increased level effect of the Link Rune is applied individually to each Skill Rune.. (Skill A White Slot - X Link Rune Lv. 30 - Skill B White Slot > Lv. 31 X Link Rune effect applied to Skill A / Lv. 31 X Link Rune effect applied to Skill B)
If multiple essences are used on a slot that has already changed to White, it can be further enchanted. In this case, the Link Rune’s level increases by the number of enchantment stacks.
When a Rune Candor Essence is used on a Skill Rune, all other essences besides ‘Rune Link Essence, Rune Birth Essence’ and Rune Upgrade Essences cannot be used.

Consecutive successes with Rune Candor Essence decreases the success chance of the next enchant.
Candor Essences can no longer be used upon failing. However, there is a chance the enchantment will be ‘maintained,’ to allow one more try.
If maintained, instead of the Candor Essence effect being applied, the next enchant's success chance slightly increases. If the stacks are maintained multiple times in a row, the success chance continues to increase.
Successfully enchanting Candor Essence will remove all bonus success chances.
Upon completely failing, ‘Rune Color Essences’ can be used on the Skill Rune again. Afterward, Rune Candor Essence can be enchanted again from the beginning.

Every 5 successful enchant with Rune Candor Essence increases the Skill Rune’s maximum level limit.
(E.g.: 10 Candor Essence enchants on a Skill Rune with maximum level of 30 will allow the Skill Rune to be increased up to Lv. 32)
When the maximum level of 30 is surpassed, elements can be used from 'Rune Growth' to increase the Rune's level
Rune’s maximum level increase can be applied up to 5 times. The increased maximum level is displayed on the left with a number. Once applied, it does not disappear even when Rune Candor Essence enchant fails and the Rune is reset with ‘Rune Color Essence,’ or ‘Rune Birth Essence.’.
If the ‘Previous Maximum Success’ is not surpassed after the reset, the ‘Maximum Level Limit’ does not increase either.
- E.g.: Maximum Level Limit increased by 2 with 10 Rune Candor Essence successes > Rune Candor Essence enchant fails. Rune is reset and then proceeded to 5 Rune Candor Essence successes. Maximum Level Limit increase is maintained at 2 > Upon reaching 15 Candor Essence successes, the Maximum Level Limit then changes to 3.

Rune Slot Restoration

Using ‘Rune Candor Revitalization Essence’ will restore the Rune Slot to its maximum Rune Candor Essence successful enchant count.
- Can be used on Skill Runes that have been reset with Rune Color Essence after failing Rune Candor Essence.
- If a Candor Essence enchant attempt fails during a re-attempt, it can be used to restore to the previous highest enchant count without resetting.
The maximum enchant record of a Skill Rune enchanted with Rune Candor Essence can be viewed from the Mystic's ‘Rune Enchant’ UI.
If “Rune Birth Essence” is used on a Skill Rune enchanted with Rune Candor Essence, the maximum enchant record is erased. Please be aware that in this case, it cannot be recovered even with Rune Candor Revitalization Essence.
