Frequently Asked Questions

Can I combine 2 Books of the same enchant but different levels?

No. You can only combine Custom Enchant books that are the same enchant at the same level.

Does the success rate matter?

Yes and No. When you combine 2 Custom Enchant books you will receive the next level enchant book at a decreased success rate and increased destruction rate.

What will the Success Rate of the next book be?
The success rate of the book obtained by the Alchemist will be 25% of both books combined.

For example:
If you have 1 book that is 100% and another that is 40% the resulting book will be 35% Success Rate.
100/4 = 25
40/4 = 10
25+10=35%​

What will the Destruction Rate of the next book be?
The destruction rate of the book obtained by the Alchemist will be the result of 25% of the combined destruction rates plus the highest destruction rate of both the books.

For example:
If you have 1 book that is 40% and another that is 16% the resulting book will be 54% Destruction Rate.
40+16 = 56
54/4 = 14
14+40 = 54%​

Does it cost anything to combine Custom Enchant books?
Yes. It will cost XP to upgrade your books to the next level.

Can you combine Soul Enchants?
No. You cannot combine Soul Enchant books.

Is the amount of XP dependent on the tier or level of the Custom Enchant book?
Both. The amount of XP required to combine Custom Enchant books will depend on the tier of the Enchant and the Level of the resulting combination.

Is the amount of XP dependent on the success rate?
No. The amount of XP required to combine Custom Enchant books is not affected by the success rates (or destruction rates) of the books you provide the Alchemist.

What happens if you combine two top level Enchant Books?
The Alchemist will not accept top level Enchant books.

How did you come up with the cost?
The cost of combination was determined through testing. Remember that you are GUARANTEED the level upgrade with the Alchemist and as such we had to carefully consider the current Custom Enchant Book economy. We are definitely open to feedback, however this update was NOT implemented to simply hand everyone top level Custom Enchant books, but rather offer you guys a means and a purpose for lower level books that you, the community, requested the ability to combine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I combine Magic Dust from different Tiers like Simple with Unique?
No. You can only combine Magic Dust with Magic Dust from the same tier.

Can I combine Primal Magic Dust?
Absolutely!

What will the Magic Dust Percent be?
When you combine Magic Dust the resulting Magic Dust will be half of the two Magic Dusts combined.

For example:
If you have 5% Ultimate Dust and combine that with 3% Ultimate Magic Dust the result will be 4% Legendary Magic Dust.
5+3 = 8
8/2 = 4%

What happens if both the Magic Dust combined equals an odd number?
The resulting upgraded Magic Dust will round down.

For example:
If you have 5% Ultimate Dust and combine that with 4% Ultimate Magic Dust the result will be 4% Legendary Magic Dust.
5+4 = 9
9/2 = 4.5% which will automatically round down to 4%​

Does it cost anything to combine Magic Dust?
Yes. It will cost XP to upgrade your Magic Dust to the next tier.

Can you combine Legendary Magic Dust?
No. Because there is no tier above Legendary, Legendary Magic Dust cannot be upgraded.

Is there a way to obtain Soul Dust?
Soul Dust is not available currently.

Can I combine more than 2 Magic Dust at a time?
No. You are not able to combine more than 2 Magic Dust at a time.

If the Magic Dust percent is larger than 10% does it turn into Primal Magic Dust?
No. The Magic Dust you receive will not change into Primal Magic Dust.

How did you come up with the cost?
The cost of upgrading Magic Dust was determined through testing. Remember that you are GUARANTEED the upgrade with the Alchemist and as such we had to carefully consider the current Magic Dust economy. We are definitely open to feedback, however this update was NOT implemented to simply hand everyone 100% Custom Enchant books, but rather offer you guys a means and a purpose for lower level Magic Dust that you, the community, requested the ability to upgrade.
