Default Catalyst Guide

Intro:
People find catalysts all the time, yet what are they used for? They are used for Light and Regular Fortifications.

Info:
Catalysts give a certain percent chance of succeeding added to the chance you already have.
Catalysts add 1.25% for each one you use.

Here are the percentages:

1 Catalyst~1.25%
2 Catalyst~2.5%
3 Catalyst~3.75%
4 Catalyst~5%
5 Catalyst~6.25%
6 Catalyst~7.5%
7 Catalyst~8.75%
8 Catalyst~10%
9 Catalyst~11.25%
10 Catalyst~12.5%
11 Catalyst~13.75%
12 Catalyst~15%
13 Catalyst~16.25%
14 Catalyst~17.5%
15 Catalyst~18.75%
16 Catalyst~20%
17 Catalyst~21.25%
18 Catalyst~22.5%
19 Catalyst~23.75%
20 Catalyst~25%

Catalysts also increase the chance of the item becoming broken if failed.
Percentages are unknown as of yet.

i know that each level has a different success/failure chance. going from +1-+3 is USUALLY cake. on +4 i usually use 10 catalyst. on +5 ill use 20. I havent gone to +6 yet, but ive broken 1 wiz rotam robe trying to upgrade to +5. It broke on +4 with 10 catalyst =/. So im not gonna risk +6 on anything untill i know i have the money to replace broken items. I think you can repair broken items, but im not sure how.

Wow, I guessed and got the %'age increase with cats right xD

Also using more catalysts increases the chance of the item being broken if failed.

I've tested that too.

20 gloves, 10 with cats, 10 without

tested using 10 cats on each. Got all to +7 no problem. used 10 cats for each +7 -> +8 for the ones I was using cats with, i failed 7/10 of the +7->+8, and 4 were destroyed.

Without cats, the 7->8s failed 6/10 times and were destroyed no amount of times. I kept upgrading these to +9, then sold em =)

they were all the same glove too.

EDIT;

mkkayy, so basically I realized I forgot to sum it up soo...

Using 10 cats for the +7 -> +8 I got...
7/10 FAILED
4 of the 7 got DESTROYED
3 of them SUCCEEDED


Using no cats for the +7 -> +8 I got...
6/10 FAILED
NONE were DESTROYED
Eventually all of them got to +9 WITHOUT being destroyed

penguin, so u got 10 gloves all to +7 without any broken, and using 10 cats each time? O.o... so what ur saying is that you can almost have a super high chance of getting an item to +9 by going 10 cats each upgrade until +7, and then going pure forts from then on?

Ye it can break at +1 or go all the way up to +8, ur lucky or your not. A guy in my first guild broke all he's armor and decided to quit cuz he went broke and wasted all he's armor. Guess he was one dam unlucky guy.
