As some may already know, the grade higher than Mythic, translated into “Arche” or
“Primordial”, has been released in the 3.5 update. This grade is characterized by a blue and purple border, and seems to be the final grade a weapon can have, for now.
Additionally, regrade rates have been changed. Most of them have increased.
In this picture, you can see how the new “Primordial” gear looks like. It has a lilac-colored name, and highest tier, as seen in the graphic on the left.
The effects of Primordial armor buffs are unknown at the moment.
Regrade rates have changed as well. The following tables will show the reflected regrade changes.
The first table has regrade rates shown for “Easy”, “Normal” and “Difficult” gear (weapons/armor/accessories).
- “Easy” gear is obtained from lower level dungeons, and items like Lost Garden weapons and Hasla Weapons.
- “Normal” gear is pretty much most of the gear, excluding the gear in “Easy” and “Difficult”. Includes crafted and mob drop gear.
- “Difficult” gear is comprised of Obsidian gear and Raid Boss drops.
This is for the rate of achieving a successful regrade on that specific grade, so if you were regrading an Celestial Obsidian Katana, and had wishes to regrade it to a higher grade like Divine or Epic, you would have a 19.5% change for that to happen.
|SUCCESS RATE CHART (ARMOR/WEAPON)||Easy||Normal||Difficult|
|Grand → Rare||100%||100%||100%|
|Rare → Arcane||100%||100%||100%|
|Arcane → Heroic||67.5%||50%||32.5%|
|Heroic → Unique||67.5%||50%||32.5%|
|Unique → Celestial||47.3%||35%||22.8%|
|Celestial → Divine||40.5%||30%||19.5%|
|Divine → Epic||13.5%||10%||6.5%|
|Epic → Legendary||10.8%||8%||5.2%|
|Legendary → Mythic||4.1%||3%||2%|
|Mythic → “Primordial”||2.7%||2%||1.3%|
This other table shows the rates for the chance for a successful regrade at each grade, for ship components and pet armor.
|SUCCESS RATE CHART (SHIP COMPONENT/PET GEAR)||Rate|
|Grand → Rare||100%|
|Rare → Arcane||60%|
|Arcane → Heroic||60%|
|Heroic → Unique||60%|
|Unique → Celestial||50%|
|Celestial → Divine||50%|
|Divine → Epic||40%|
|Epic → Legendary||35%|
|Legendary → Mythic||17.5%|
|Mythic → “Primordial”||8.8%|
Do note that these altered rates may arrive in our version in a different rate. Also, note that these rates are not the chances at you will get a certain grade (that would be way too high!). These are the chances for success at each grade. Remember that you can alter the success rate by using Regrade Charms.
With increased rates for success in regrades, there is now a higher gold fee to pay when regrading. Watch out for that!
And for those interested, the UI for regrading has changed slightly.
You can see that instead of arrows for Success, you see an actual percentage of your chance of regrading. Charms also add to chance for success percent, which can be seen once 3.5 arrives.
The video shows a KR player regrading a weapon, showing the UI, as well as how an Anchoring Emblem affects the regrade success rate.
