Basics of the Tempering System
Tempering is a new system for modifying equipment. Tempering re-rolls ALL the base stats of the original item. Tempering can also be done an unlimited amount of times, and there is no failure rate but there is a reform count system which can be easily reset by Allen's Bottle. If an equipment has slots for compounding, tempering does not effect how many slots or what stats are compounded into them. Note that the stats you receive after tempering are generated RANDOMLY and is not based on LK. If you temper a refined equipment it will re-count the additional stats you got from refining, you don't have to refine again for the correct +stats.
You cannot temper any equipment which is below level 20. Unlike compounding where the item only has to meet the minimum required compound item to succeed, tempering can only use the item within its level range. As the equipment levels get higher, so does the level of the item required to temper it. This item is called Chaos Feather. You can get these from completing Party Quests (= PQ), from Worn and Old Treasure Maps and from Card Identification skill.
There's an NPC called Alan in Paradise Shop (Desert beach), Megalopolis Shop (Megalopolis), Carbigal Shop (Black Swamp) and Laplanoel Shopping Mall (Snow Hill). Take your equipment to him and he will tell you what feathers you need and what quantity to temper with that piece of equipment. I will link Alan's page from wiki, you can find information about the feathers and Party Quests there.
(Note: I copy-pasted alot from the wiki page and filled with my own thoughts too, I hope the wiki writer don't mind)
Here on this server you will find 2 ways for tempering your equipment. There is a way to do it in-game and there is another on the website.
What CANNOT be tempered
- Altiverse Equipment (can only be forged)
- Unique Equipment (=boss sets)
- Absolute Unique Equipment (Shining Crystal set, Fallen Watcher set)
- Phantom Equipments lv215 and 275 (I got this from wiki)
- Equipment below lv20 (we don't have lower level chaos feathers)
- Universal Trickster Capes
- Customized Blood Shield + Set
- Special colored rTO wings new!
Tempering uses a system, in which it re-rolls the base stats of the original item within a 70%-130% decrease/increase. Example:
With a Gold Tempering Gem (from MyShop or from the Auction House) you'll receive 15% minimum and maximum range increase. You can choose one stat which you really want to focus on. Example:
NOTE: I can't show you the result because I chose web-tempering instead of the random in-game.
Reform Count is a system which was only available in the Asian Trickster Online servers. It counts how many times you tempered your equipment. When it reaches 0 you cannot temper that item in-game anymore unless you reset it with Allen Bottle bought from Item Girl's shop in Megalopolis Shop. You can only reset reform count in-game at Alan NPC.
These items have only 3 reform counts in-game and after it reaches 0 you can't use Allen Bottle to reset the counter. I think it is a bug, so I highly recommend to temper these items on the website (especially if it has 4slots) because on the website the temper reform DOES NOT count!
