Alright, so I'm EXTREMELY lucky and upgrade my wind necklace to level 8 with only one failure (and it wasn't a degrade, either). I want it at 9. I hit OK. It breaks. I BAWWWWW QQ. I try again. I can't get it to 4 without it getting degraded. 500 gems later, only at 6. Upgrade. Break. More BAWWW QQing. I give up.
