On Trifecta Ragnarok Online, there are currently two refine systems that work in tandem.
Normal refines are pretty standard, the only main change is that blessed ores can be used all the way up to +20.
The normal way of refining is using phracon, emveretarcon, oridecon, etc OR using refine tickets.
+6 refine tickets are available in the event shop in the market, while +7 refine tickets are available from Eve Natalia in the Eden group.
Blessed ores are also available from Blessed Bro in the market.
Blessed ores allow you to refine an item that is +6 or higher, with no chance of breaking the item. However, the refine may still fail. The refine chance is the same as using oridecon/elunium.
Desynthesis is a custom system created for TRO to help make farming blessed ores less tedious.
The Desynthesis NPC takes your unused or unwanted gear and turns it into tiered refine powder. Each equipment that is able to be traded in is sorted into 3 tiers. Tier 3 being the lowest, and tier 1 being the highest.
To break the items into powder, you just sell them to the Desynthesis NPC like normal, and if the item is sorted in the system, it will automatically give you the correct powder for it.
NOTE: THIS ONLY WORKS ON THE DESYNTHESIS NPC, SELLING ITEMS TO NORMAL NPCS WILL NEVER GIVE YOU REFINE POWDER!!
The items that give you a specific tier of powder are refined using the same tier of powder. For example, if you trade in a STR soutane, it will give you tier 1 powder. If you were to refine a STR soutane, it would require tier 1 powder to refine.
This NPC is used to refine items with refine powder.
It costs 100 + 20 per refine level to upgrade your gear.
Upgrading with this method will GUARANTEE your equipment will be refined.
