Default Upgrading with HD elunium

I apologize for the question, but I'm confused with the data on the wiki vs. the ingame description of HD elunium. From what I understand, using HD elunium prevents an item from breaking in upgrade attempts, but according to the wiki, you can use this on any upgrade level of item, while the ingame item appears to have a minimum upgrade level of 7, and maximum of 9.

Can someone clarify this for me? Am I getting two different items mixed up?

you can start at +7, drop below but keep going so long as you dont close the dialog.

Ahh this is something I wondered about, too, thanks for the clarification! I thought people kept switching between HD and Enriched when it dropped below +7.

Is the upgrade probability of success for HD ELU / ORI the same as Enriched ELU / ORI?

No, I think HD elu/ori have same chance as normal elu/ori, it just won't break the item.

Default Re: Upgrading with HD elunium

then weres the million going to gravitys bank then

Lots of people have +9 kvms or better upgrades

Hd is better but nobody has researched it and it the same for enriched or need better research

I would have more or less +7 items you fail way to many times and it costs way to much to buy replacements

Get me lots of $$$$ and i will do the research for everybody

enriched has higher rate but risks of breaking gear
HD gurantees safety (wont break) but rates are bull and everyone here has had a +3 from +7 before
if you got money to burn then you are ok, and also HD is the only way to go for rare gears

Default Re: Upgrading with HD elunium

well how many hd upgrade do you use to get to +10

with enriched it use them till you break max 300 kp
with hd it 30kp to an unknown number of kp

there getting you to spend more

They should do is make enriched so it upgrade automatically but costs 10-20x as much that would be worth buying

Other games use the no fail method for upgrading

So you can't use HD elunium if your armor is +6 or lower?

nope. and you need a big enough reserve of ores while talking to the NPC to ensure if you start at +7 and drop to say +3, you can upgrade back to +7 so long as you dont stop the conversation which means no buying more ores halfway through.

Ive heard 300 is about average, so 30 bucks. My first just took over 100 thanks Miya!!

and my second took 70 and never made it to +8..then I had another batch and then went +8 +7 +8 +9.

Ive known a few other people that spent over 500 for 1 +9

Dang that's a LOT of HD Elu to spend on a single equipment.

Considering that I have or am going to buy an armor that is +7.
If the average for +7 -> +9 is 300 HD ELUs, then how many would I need to get a +7 -> +10 ???

It costs 30 bucks for 300 HD elus there? In tRO for 30 bucks you get 10 HE elu (basically the same thing).

Talk about rip off.
