Third Wish - Manastones
It's time to relax! Check how easy is to socket items right now!
The third wish is all about Manastones.
The core failure system has been changed reducing the overall consumption in the process. This update (August 20th, 2014) has been applies to Live and Test server simultaneously.
Manastone Failure Penalty
Manastone failure system has been changed.
Previously when you fail to put a Manastone into an item all previous Manastones were destroyed. Thanks to the Wish Campaign from now on if you fail to socket an item only the slot you are trying to put a Manastone to will be affected, all previously used Manastone will remain untouched.
Manastone Consumption Significantly Reduced
Manastone consumption was necessary to keep the Manastone flow go.
You could socket your 6 slotted item with only 6 Manastones if you were lucky but there was still a chance you could spend hundred of stones.
However thanks to the Wish Campaign Manastone failure system has been changed making it easier to socket all items. If you check the PowerBook experiment you will see that overall consumption has been reduced.
PowerBook Manastone Experiment
In this experiment we will try to socket different types of items with different Manastones to see how the recent changes to the system affect overall consumption of Manastones.
■ Experiment Details
1. Rare Manastones and 6 slotted Mythical weapon x100 times
2. Rare Manastones and 6 slotted Eternal weapon x100 times
3. Composite Manastones and 6 slotted Mythical weapon x100 times
4. Composite Manastones and 6 slotted Eternal weapon x100 times
■ Items Used in the Experiment
|Mythical Weapon||Bastion Defender Firm Cipher-Blade|
|Eternal Weapon||Resplendent Axial|
|Rare Manastone||Manastone: Magic Boost +28|

- Supplements were not used.
■ Result The experiment shows that a player needs about 17.26 (17.59 in the European test) Manastones to fully socket a 6 slot item. There has not been any significant change in the success rate and you may still need to use the same amount of stones as before. Pay attention because you may still need to use 40 Manastones for just one slot. However in 29 cases we were successful to socket the whole item using less then 10 stones.
