Dragon Nest Weapon Refining Guide by 2sick2die from the MMOSite Dragon Nest Forums:
Here’s a guide on how to refine your Weapons and Armors past 7, gears under lvl 32 are easy to refine over 7, but once you reach lvl 32 refining will cost alot of gold, especially if you fail or worse, break the weapon.
How to Refine your WEAPONS and ARMORS!
First, make sure to go to a channel with the least amount of population,
Second, make sure to do this at night when most players are asleep,
Third, get your 32B or A weapon ready, also 2 23 or 31 C or D grade weapons, the cheapest ones you can find.
Fourth, upgrade your 32B or A weapon to 5, then put in the C or D weapon in and upgrade till 5 and then till it fails, Then replace that weapon with your 32B or A weapon and upgrade to 6.
Fifth, do the same thing, replace with the C or D weapon and upgrade until 6 and then till it fails,
then replace with 32B or A and upgrade to 7.
Sixth, now we are going to try and go for 8, replace with the C or D weapon, refine it til it breaks,
and then place in the 2nd C or D weapon and refine it til it breaks, after both weapon has been broken, replace with 32B or A and refine to 8.
By following this guide you have a 99% chance on getting your Gears to 8.
Why i chose lvl 23 C or D weapon is because the refine stones are different,
and its cheaper.
This might be a little time consuming but it is worth it,
Trust me, after i got my first lvl 32 character to max lvl, i wasted approx 90 gold on refining its armors and weapons, after failing many times, and wasting many stones, I only got my weapon to 6 secondary weapon to 5 and all my armors to 5….
but for my second lvl 32 (priest) I got everything refined to 7 and weapons to 8 using less than half of that money.
