14. How Enchanting – Learn about Enchantments & Refinement Points
      Rewards: 14 Silver 26 Copper

- Speak with Tarhun in the Adventurer’s Guild- Take the opportunity to also read the information on Artifacts and how to upgrade those.

- Receive an ‘Etched Glass Enchantment’, 2 x Mark of Potency Rank 1s along with ‘Polished Quartz’ that you can refine

- Go to your Inventory and select the Polished Quartz. Bring up the item menu on the Quartz and select  ‘Convert to Refinement Points

- Select the Etched Glass Enchantment and open the menu for it, select ‘Refine’. The Refinement window will then open. In this menu there is a bar showing how many Refinement points are needed to upgrade the enchant and a box to the left, showing which Reagents you need to further the upgrade, in this case a Mark of Potency Rank 1. At the bottom of the window, it shows you the chance of being successful with your upgrade. This chance is given as a percentage, and each attempt at upgrading will use that same percentage.  The higher the rank of Enchantment you are attempting to upgrade to, the lower the chance of success. If your upgrade attempt fails, the reagents used will be lost.  

You will also notice a box to the right. This is where you can place a 'Ward'. There are 2 types of wards available, Preservation Wards (these preserve your reagents in case the upgrade fails) and Coalescent Wards (Guarantee a successful upgrade every time). It is better to use Preservation wards for Rank 8 to 9 enchants and above as the reagents become harder to drop and procure at these ranks. It isalso advisable to only use a Coalescent ward when the chance is below 5%. Many players tend to save these for use only on a 1% chance upgrade.

- The Etched Glass Enchant shows a 100% chance of upgrade success, so now hit the upgrade button in the window. You should now have an Etched Glass Enchantment Rank 2.

- Speak to Tarhun again and give him back the Enchantment, he will give you a Dark Enchantment Rank 2, that you can keep and upgrade as you need.

-  Return to Sgt Knox

Further Enchantments come from many places in the game. Rank 1 to 5 Enchantments can be purchased from the Sage Shop in Protector’s Enclave. Rank 12 to 15 Enchantments can be purchased from the Tarmalune Trade Bar Merchant. They also drop from Lockboxes and Dungeon/Trial Queues and can be bought with Astral Diamonds from the Auction house also.

Refinement Points

You will have noticed various gems given as a reward for quests, and dropping from enemies, Amethyst, Quartz, White Pearls and many more are available as you progress to more difficult content. These are specifically to convert into Refinement points to spend in upgrading your Enchantments and Artifacts. There is also an in game event periodically, Bonus Refinement Points in which you can earn extra refinement simply by killing enemies.
