Server: Core+Ramona Name: Timewaste [Fafurion Update] Some say it’s just luck, some say it’s statistics, some say it’s art, some say it’s game mechanics and some still believe in game bugs or even prejudice and destiny! Many tried and fail, said they will quit. Many tried and failed and then tried again and succeeded. Whatever your story is in Lineage 2, or whatever your thoughts are for overenchanting, here is a guide to increase your chances of success. Enjoy the read and may lady luck smile upon you in every attempt… 1. Choosing your destiny So, why most of the ELITE enchanters are Dwarves? Does it really matter? The answer is it all comes down to the basic stats and yes, Dwarves have more LUC as basic stats that any other race. The difference though is just +1 LUC (35 instead of 34 for all other races), so if your plan is to do your ORC or your Fighter a PRO over-enchanter, YES you can. Having said that, leveling an Othell Fortune Seeker will give you "Great Luck" skill, LUC+3 which is a clear advantage moving forward! Spoiler: Great Luck Great Luck Skill for Othell Fortune Seeker 2. Increasing your probability of SUCCESS of your char If you want to go down the bumpy but fun, full of emotions road of overenchant one of the best investments you can make for your toon is making a Maphr’s Shirt +10. At +10, Maphr’s shirt increases the enchant success rate by +15% for all enchants, except No-grade items. It is a must have for all OE addicts! Spoiler: Maphr’s Shirt 3. Increasing the probability of SUCCESS of the enchant a. Choosing your scroll - poison! Tip: Basically if you overenchant beyond +12, use EWR+10% chance (they are cheap too!)or destruction scroll. Beyond +15 it's either EWR+10% or gran kain. Spoiler: EWR Scrolls List of EWR Scrolls: Scroll: Enchant Weapon (R) Blessed Scroll: Enchant Weapon (R-grade) Giant's Scroll: Enchant Weapon (R-grade) Scroll: Enchant Weapon (R) +10% Success Rate Destruction Scroll: Enchant Weapon (R-grade) Gran Kain Scroll: Enchant Weapon (R-grade) b. Choosing your stone Tip: For overenchanting beyond +12 stick to freya, purple or gold cards/stones. Beyond +15 it's gold card or nothing! (mentioning only the important once) Spoiler: Lucky Cards List of Enchant Stones: Blessed High-grade Lucky Enchant Stone: Weapon (R-grade) Lesser Giant's Lucky Enchant Stone: Weapon Pack (R-grade) Windy Lucky Enchant Stone: Weapon (R-grade) Freya's Lucky Enchant Stone: Weapon (R-grade) Red Save Card (R99-grade) Royal Red Save Card (R99-grade) Royal Purple Save Card (R99-grade) Royal Gold Save Card 4. Invest in Lady Luck/LUC Stat Lady luck comes 4th in this guide, but it is probably the single most important aspect for OE and end game players. Reason is, LUC’s benefits, extent well beyond R-grade items over-enchanting. Having high LUC stats at your chars becomes very useful in many L2 store events as well, where you have to over enchant no-grade items too (circlets, shirts, etc). Experiment - Lady luck success rate: https://eu.4gameforum.com/threads/584436/ Lady luck can also influence your overenchant in some L2 store events. A thrid party site, tried to calculate your spending (aka PAY-TO-WIN) with LUC! The numbers are by no means verified, but it's a fun site! So, how to increase your LUC, and Luck!? a. Your dyes. Of course, it does not make much sense having LUC dyes on your main. But having +15 (3 x 5) LUC at one of your subs makes a lot of sense. Spoiler: LUC dyes LUC dyes b. Make your LUC bracelet. This again needs some luck, but you can get a dimensional bracelet (mostly available from L2 store) and increase its level to +5 LUC. Keep in mind that if the OE of the bracelet fails it resets to +0. From experience, a +3 LUC bracelet is good enough for decent OE players. Spoiler: LUC Bracelet LUC bracelet c. Get an accessory. There are many hair accessories out there that can give you +3 LUC, get one and keep it handy at your warehouse! Spoiler: LUC Accessory LUC Accessory d. Dragon Ring Leather Shirt: It might be an expensive item, but a dragon leather shirt can boost your LUC stat +6 if you over enchant it at last stage beyond +3. Keep in mind that this item is only for chars 105 or above so if you are not there yet don’t get very excited! This is what you should also wear when you over enchant any No-grade items as Maphr’s shirt does not work. Spoiler: Dragon Leather Shirt Dragon Ring Leather Shirt e. Make your quest (Fate of Exalted) - Completing Fate of Exalted will boost your basic LUC stat +1. Not bad at all! - Get a nice cloak as outlined below (LUC+1 cloak). Spoiler: Exalted Book Fate of the Exalted Book f. Wearing the right Cloak. Cloaks can boost your luck mostly +1, +2, +3 (Nevit, L2 Store) and if you are a leader cloak of light can give you up to +4 LUC! Where to find them? Finish “Fate of Exalted quest”, get a castle or be the Leader! Spoiler: LUC Cloaks List of Cloaks with LUC g. Get a Venir talisman which can give you +1 (stage 7), +2 (stage 15) or +3 LUC (stage 24). As stage 24 seems a bit over the top for +1 extra LUC, a stage 15/16 venir is probably your best choice at the moment. Spoiler: Venir Venir Talisman h. Make your Insanity talisman. To me, this talisman represents how crazy you are to deal with OE, so you might as well get the title and the LUC +2 stat for your char. Spoiler: Insanity Insanity Talisman i. Buy a Ring of Truth-Seeker or Ruler's Ring of Authority. Expensive item at the moment (maybe 80 bill.) but can give you LUC+2. Equipping both Ring of Truth-Seeker and Ruler's Ring of Authority will give you +4 LUC! Spoiler: Thruth Seeker Ring Truth Seeker Ring j. Over enchant your armor first! Getting a +10 armor set will boost your LUC+1. Any R grade armor set will do the trick so why not? R armors are quit cheap at the moment! Spoiler: +10 Set LUC from +10 Set k. Make a La vie brooch. La vie rose magnificent brooch gives all stats +2 including LUC+2. Spoiler: La vie brooch La vie brooch l. Get a greater Emerald Brooch. A greater emerald brooch can increase all of your stats +3, including LUC+3. Spoiler: Greater Emerald Greater Emerald m. Make your artifact set to get +1 in all stats, including LUC. Note: Currently Artifact set level 3 is not available. Spoiler: Artifact Set Level 3 artifact set n. Evolve your agathion to stage 5 to get +1 in all stats, including LUC. Spoiler: Evolved Agathion Evolved Agathion Stage 5 o. Epic Accessories (Fafurion Jewels) These items are only available to the few farming epic bosses but all the new epic jewels can give you LUC+1, +2 or +3 overenchanting them to +1, +2 or +3 and more, which is very difficult to do! Spoiler: Epic Accessories - where to get Epic Accessories Spoiler: Epic Accessories - by type Dragon Ring Dragon Earring Dragon Necklace p. Other items (no longer available). If you have been playing long enough, you might have some other goodies to increase your luck like the Christmas talisman. Unfortunately, these talismans can no longer be obtained through the game and the few that we have on the server are traded for billions of adena! Christmas talisman can give you LUC+1 or LUC+2. Spoiler: Christmas Talisman Christmas Talisman q. Get a Beer, literally! Can be obtained from current L2 store event: https://eu.4gameforum.com/threads/661194/ Spoiler: Honey Beer Honey vitality buff r. Get your Maphr’s Luck Potion. Before the final click, make sure you click a Maphr’s scroll! It will boost your LUC stat +5. It only lasts 15 seconds, so no second thoughts or turning back at this point! Spoiler: Maphr's Luck Potion 5. Where or when to stop? To close this guide, I will share with you a video. You can take my word and recommendations above or do it your way! And here is the proof!
