TERA Online Gear Guide – How To Upgrade Gear Attributes

By   /   4 years ago

Being a fighter, you need gear, right? However, which gear will suit your character best can be a tricky question.

For that, you will have to know the basic attributes of various gears available in the game and how can they be upgraded. Once, you know this stuff, the selection task will be easier and your character will be in a much better shape.

Once you have identified the items (you will come across “?” icons throughout the world of TERA), you can enchant them using enchantment alkahest (White Pink or Blue) which will improve the efficiency of your gear to a greater extent.

TERA General Gear Attributes

Let’s just take a loot at the general attributes of various items in your gear:

You can also get some unique gear from dungeons like Dome and Watch. The collected gear will already be enchanted, which will provide you extra attributes like increased skill damage, reduced MP cost and reduced cool-down time. So it’s worthy to pay a visit to these places when you feel like to.

TERA – How to Identify and Make Your Gear Enigmatic

By identifying any item, you will have randomly generated attributes at your disposal. Some of them will be awarded as you identify the item while for others, the item needs to be enchanted.

After identifying the item, you will get a couple of basic attributes (either 1 or 2) which can be made enigmatic (to improve the attributes) depending on the need of attributes you want to strengthen related to your class.

The process will cost you a lot so you should be aware of what exactly you want to achieve. The common identifying scroll will cost you 5,250 Gold while you need 52,500 Gold for the common enigmatic scroll.

Crafting the gear can be a good option (especially at lower levels) as you get extra attributes if you craft items. But once you have levelled up your character (50+), you can rely on the drops as crafting can get real expensive for elite class equipment.

TERA Weapon Enchanting

You can use enchantment alkahests to further refine the efficiency of your weapons. But, before you that, you should be aware of the effect of these materials. You will come across three main types of enchants in TERA:

It’s the cheapest and hence commonly used material used in the game. You have the normal chance of success (I would say 60/40) and you also get the chance to downgrade on failure.

The success rate is higher as compared to the white enchant. It is more expensive and isn’t commonly used for refinement. The enchant can be bought only in the Luxury shop which can be accessed by the Vanarchs Lords.

You can use this powder only to upgrade an item from +6 to +12 grade. There is always a chance for the downgrade but that is quite rare. It will cost you a lot, but the Blue enchant is worthy enough when you have leveled up to the maximum. The items like Pink enchant, will only be available in the luxury shop.

I will recommend that you use the common and uncommon gear as sacrificial gear along with white enchant for the range 0 to +6 while for higher upgrades, you can use the legendary gear as sacrificial gear along with the blue enchant.

Being the managing editor, Ali manages a lot of the editorial duties as well as publishing stories for you. A long-time gamer, his favorite game series is the Gears of War but when he's not gaming he likes to kick back with a few popular animes like Naruto.
