Welkom allemaal weer bij een nieuwe guide van The StrongHold Community !!! Deze Guide is ingezonden door @Metalharpey#7947
Dit is haar advies/gids over Failstacking in Black Desert Online in het engels gezien de oorspronkelijke guide is geschreven voor de onismusha guild in bdo !!
if you have any questions you can ask them on discord !!
Failstacking is something that ALWAYS gives questions.
How do you failstack? What material to failstack?
Well... Let's see if I can make you a little wiser...
Please keep in mind, EVERYTHING IS FREAKING RNG. So, if it doesn't work for you like this, don't blame me!
Some people found that one char is more lucky than others, or that some days it's good and some days it isn't.
Find out what works for you. This is just to get you an idea on how it all works!
Failstack Optimization (how to failstack)
Since priests now have the power to downgrade, a negative alt is no longer needed. Of course you can still use this tactic (keep killing horses to go negative, die to guards in towns or mobs to downgrade armor) if you want to.
You can use +14 Reblath for this (bought in Velia/crafted). Some people get really lucky on Reblath and manage to get 30+ failstacks.
I don't recommend this because not everyone is that lucky, and there's a big chance it won't go like that.
Use a +14 Green Gear/Weapons/Offhand. You can get greens really cheap from the Special Deals in the Market tabs (bottom one). This will save you alot of money.
Of course if you grind in certain areas you might be able to farm pieces by yourself. You can also craft almost every Green in the game. Up to you how you do this.
Generally, weapons have a bigger chance on failstacking than gear. Don't ask why, I don't know. It just is.
Use PRI, DUO or TRI Greens (recommended Grunil because you can sell them ez). PRI often goes easier than +15 though, so probably best to use DUOs and TRIs for this.
Of course you can also failstack on Liverto at this point, or even boss gear if you have spares and don't care for Memory Fragments.
Basically the only way is to fail TRI boss or yellow jewelry. This hurts, I know.
There's also events often that help you with this. Just keep an eye out!
These happen when you fail TETs. Well, if you're unlucky this even happens on TRI boss... Like me T^T.
These happen when you fail PENs. Of course there's also a chance you're still trying for TET and get this...
Okay so now we know how to failstack, and of course we have the Enhancing and Reforming basics covered, so now on to the important part...
When you enhance weapons its safe up to +7 (no fails). For armor this is +5.
When you fail to enhance past DUO (so TRI), your gear will downgrade. So, if you fail TRI it will become a PRI. Good luck!
Here's a useful failstack sheet (last update dec 2017).
And something a little more up to date below 🙂
Since this only covers gear, weapons and jewelry, I'll go in-depth on the rest of it here.
Fishing Rods & Matchlocks
Do keep in mind that when you fail +7 or higher, your Rod/Matchlock will downgrade.
Most people choose to force the item instead. This will consume more durability, but will upgrade it 100%.
Green Boat/Wagon/Horse Gear
With Epheria parts (green, both sailboat and frigate) you will need Concentrated Magical Black Stone Armor at +6.
When failing at +7 or higher, your Epheria green gear will downgrade. This doesn't apply to Wagon/Horse gear.
Blue Epheria Gear
Just like with green Epheria parts (both sailboat and frigate), you will need Concentrated Magical Black Stone Armor at +6.
And of course when failing at +7 or higher, your Epheria blue gear will downgrade.
Aaaand last but not least, Silver Profession Clothes!
My absolute favorites, some went just like the table above (I only enhance up to +3 though), and some refused to go until I used like 15 for a +2 (and then of course failed the +3).
Enhancing with jewelry and Silver Profession Clothes is always a gamble. Don't do it if you're not willing to perhaps spend more than its worth.
You can also try to pre-order them from the Market. May rng be on your side!
