  • Plating: Weight Limit & Defense
  • Figurehead: Speed & Defense
  • Sail: Turn & Rations

Epheria Ship Gear Enhancement

Enhancement for Epheria Ship Gear is straight forward. There is no RNG. Enhancement is 100% chance to succeed at all enhancement levels.

Black Stone Enhancement Durability
Verdant Black Stone +1 to +10 10

The enhancement level does NOT drop and never fails.

You will need Memory Fragments or the same gear to repair Max Durability of your ship gear. If you want to save on silver cost, you can use an optional pearl shop item called Artisan’s Memory.

  • Each same gear repairs 10 Max Durability or 50 Max Durability using Artisan’s Memory.
  • Each Memory Fragment repairs 5 Max Durability or 25 Max Durability using Artisan’s Memory.

Max Durability cost for each enhancement level is always 10. Total Max Durability you will need to repair is 100 for each ship part.
