Overview

Equipment in Ragnarok Online can be 'upgraded' or 'refined' by upgrade NPCs in each major towns to make them more powerful. All equipment has a maximum upgrade level of +10, starting from +0. +0 items do not have any prefixes, but once they are upgraded, the number of upgrade levels will be displayed on the equipment - e.g. +5 Stunner.

Also, you can turn in Rough Oridecon and Rough Elunium to create single refined Oridecon and Elunium, which are needed for upgrading Lvl 3 / Lvl 4 weapons, items and armors, respectively. The Kafra Shop offers Enriched versions of these two ores, which, when used by a special upgrade NPC, increases the chance of successfully upgrading an item.

Not all item types can be upgraded. The following item types cannot be upgraded:

  • Mid and Low Headgears
  • Accessories
  • Any items that are not equipment
  • Any equipment that specifically says it cannot be upgraded

Reagents and Cost

To upgrade, you need to provide a reagent in order to upgrade your equipment. Reagent required differs depending on weapon level of the equipment. As for armors, they all take same reagent regardless of type.

Money taken also differs depending on weapon level of the weapons.

Following list shows reagent + money required.

  • Weapon Lvl 1 - Phracon (200 Z from NPC Shop) + 50 Z Fee
  • Weapon Lvl 2 - Emveretarcon (1,000 Z from NPC Shop) + 200 Z Fee
  • Weapon Lvl 3 - Oridecon (Monster drop) + 5,000 Z Fee
  • Weapon Lvl 4 - Oridecon + 20,000 Z Fee
  • All Armor Types - Elunium (Monster drop) + 2,000 Z Fee

Refining Rough Oridecons and Eluniums

When you collect 5 Rough Oridecons and Rough Eluniums, you can convert them into a single Oridecon or Elunium by talking to an NPC in the upgrade shop. Note that you can make only one pure Oridecon or Elunium each time you talk to the NPC. This service does not cost any Zeny.

Effects Gained

When you successfully upgrade, you gain following effects:

  • Weapons
    • Weapon Lvl 1 - Every +1 upgrade gives +2 ATK (Random Bonus ATK value: +3).
    • Weapon Lvl 2 - Every +1 upgrade gives +3 ATK (Random Bonus ATK value: +5).
    • Weapon Lvl 3 - Every +1 upgrade gives +5 ATK (Random Bonus ATK value: +8).
    • Weapon Lvl 4 - Every +1 upgrade gives +7 ATK (Random Bonus ATK value: +13).
Random bonus ATK: For each overupgrade (upgrade over the safety level), the weapon adds a random number between 0 and [Random Bonus ATK value*Number of overupgrades] to each attack. Example: A Lvl 2 Weapon upgraded to +8 gains +24 ATK (fixed) plus a +10 Random Bonus ATK (a random bonus between 0 and 10 in each attack).
  • Armors
    • Every +1 upgrade gives 0.66 Equipment DEF (not VIT DEF).

Upgrades are useful, as for weapon upgrade, it reduces damage range between min - max damage (allowing you to do better average damage), it also increases your damage range. For armors, it reduces damage you take by 0.66% per every upgrade level.

Safety Level

The Safety Level is the maximum level of refinement that can be given to equipment with guaranteed success (0% chance of failure). Anything past the safety level has chance to fail, and failure means your equipment will be permanently destroyed, including any cards and other enchantments it may have had. You won't be refunded Zeny and the ore used to upgrade if it fails. Give careful thought before deciding if you want to upgrade a piece of equipment beyond its safety level.

OriginsRO NPCs offer the following safety levels when upgrading with regular ores:

  • Weapons
    • Weapon Lvl 1 - Safety Level +7
    • Weapon Lvl 2 - Safety Level +6
    • Weapon Lvl 3 - Safety Level +5
    • Weapon Lvl 4 - Safety Level +4
  • Armors
    • All armor types have Safety Level +4

Socket Enchants

For more details on the system, see Socket Enchant.

Players may use this system to add an additional card slot into selected pieces of equipment. They are divided by "ranks", which will require different amount of zeny and items (more expensive stuff will be required the higher the rank of the item you plan to upgrade). Success rates will also depend on the rank; higher rank items will have lower success rates.

When successfully enchanted, items will gain one or more slots to insert a card into. However, there are some exceptions. Some items have different effects as a result of successful enchant.

Hidden Enchants

For more details on the system, see Hidden Enchant.

This new system allows players to add stat bonuses to selected body armors. The gear is randomly given +1 to +3 of one of the 6 stats. Success rates vary according to the type of armor. Each attempt costs 400,000 zeny, but no items are needed other than the armor itself.
