Life Mastery Gear Enhancement

Life Mastery clothes and accessories can be improved by enhancement, using Black Gems crafted from Black Gem Fragments.

    • Life Mastery gear can be upgraded to PEN (V)
    • Enhancement levels increase the Life Mastery given
    • Life Mastery gear enhancement with Black Gems does not use the traditional Failstack system. Enhancement Chance is always a set amount no matter how much you fail.
    • Enhancement with Black Gems “have a higher success rate than the previous enhancement methods.” (70% PRI, 40% DUO, 30% TRI for greed grade.) Although it seems from player reports that RNG is a-foot!

    Black Gem Fragment

    Black Gem Fragments are used to create Black Gems and then Concentrated Magical Black Gems.

    Obtain By Gathering:

    • Mining
    • Barehanded Gathering (excludes Golem gathering)
    • Hoe Gathering
    • Fluid/Blood Collecting
    • Tanning (Skinning)
    • Butchering (Hunting with a Matchlock/Sniper Rifle and then butchering will provide Black Gem Fragments as well.)
    • Lumbering

    NOTE: The rates of fragments from chopping/sapping trees and mining is lower than butchering/bleeding animals or gathering herbs.
