View Full Version : Synthing 50% weapons?

Jul 3, 2008, 10:12 AM
Been experimenting with feeding my PM different items to increase the element % and not gotten above 38%. Does anyone have a better way?

There is no better way, it's random.

I remember that Shimarisu experimented & said the 50% is about 1/300. That was pre-AoI, I don't know if ST improved the chances now.

As Advent said, there's no official way to increase element %s when synthing.

It's all random, roll-of-the-dice luck.

One day I synthed a 50% Ice Muktrand, then I synthed nothing but 10-20% for two weeks.

i've synthed as high as 46% a fews times. that's about as good as my pm has gotten in 2 years.

The chances for a high% are far greater in AoI than they were in v1. You were lucky to make something above 20% back then, now you can get 30%+ synths about every third pull.

In my experience, high % weapons always come in groups. One day, I'll make nothing but poo, then some random day, I'll make 4 high weapons at once. It's still all luck though.

50% weapons is either all luck or huge bank account.

Its all luck and the persistence to get a 50% is all you need.

Only 50% weapons I have ever made was a Light Muktrand and a Ground Creasword. I've made plenty of weapons since I've started playing. Plenty of 38's and 42's but only those two 50 (that are A Rank or higher).

the only "good" 50% i've ever made was a daiga-misaki. i've made at least 3 or 4 50%'s in the past but the other's dont really matter since 2 were crea...

if there was a formula for making 50%'s (other than last years glitch) there'd be alot more 50%'s out there and the value would drop substantially.

Ive only made 1 50% weapon so far and it was a Bil De Axe - Dark.

Closest to that is just armor and they all came out 46%

Kotoha-senba - 46% Light
Orpa-Senba - 46% Ice
Orpa-Senba - 46% Dark

Edit: I made 50% Dark Crea Doubles but sold it a while ago for like 45 Million

When I synth things to make 50s, I synth 32 boards at a time. I was doing Muktrands every day for months, literally synthing 96 (32 boards times 3 tries) per day, and I would average a 50 every 2 days, sometimes better, sometimes worse. So I'd say a 50 is around 1/200 or so, probably a little bit better than that considering the weapons that failed. Over the course of those months, I made close to 30 50% Muktrands of different elements, been trying to get one of each element to 10/10. Got 2 so far, Dark and Ground. I still synth them a lot, and I'd have to say that its just random chance, I don't follow the superstitions to feed your PM different items. Without feeding them anything, I've had times where in one batch (32 tries) I've pulled 4 50%s (all Ice) where other times I can't make a 50 in 4 days, making 32 boards per day. It's random, someone said it earlier, but the best way to make a 50 of the weapon you want is to just have a big wallet. Sometimes it's probably cheaper to just buy the 50% that you want.

heh, I feel satisfied with 42% :/ *Shrug*

I don't synth many Melee weps, compared to most people. The only 50% weapon I ever got was a 50* Light Zaks Gabot. It's an awesome claw, but I don't have the guts to grind it.
