    there's special firewood now that gets you 90-something % I think on burns but it costs like 2m to make and probably would have same results. gotta love this stupid Mabi RNG :C guess you didn't sacrifice enough dead bees

    in case you're wondering and never heard of it, it's literally called special firewood. Most people know it as a material for celtic control bar but it does indeed work as a better-than-finest wood for burns

    Rng is very fickle. It's best to stack the highest odd with minimal effort than going the extra mile to still get the same result. Especially, when Ur not burning a ton but just a singular attempt. Throwing 2m away on top of the fail U would've gotten @ 80% burn is just adding insult 2 injury. :(

    I bought a solo burn at 2m thinking to re-sell at 3m and then I was thinking, hey, why not get a scroll to get more gold for it? I was feeling confident when trying to burn it because during the little times that I used enchant burning, I never failed. And yeah, then it failed. I literally burnt 2m. Never again.

    true. he would have gotten an "Exclusive Enchant Scroll" version of Solo and had to make a new burn :C and then have to unlock it. and since unlocks cost around 3 mil....

    You were asking for a fail if you aren't r1 enchant.

    It's not that bad.... I failed a Spooky burn once... and then failed enchanting Spooky 20 times (and resulted in a 0% scroll).... A big waste of my time and gold with all that enchant protection potions needed and 40m burn + 40m ES :'>

    @Everyone:

    There is an enchant proposal thread here that people have been using to throw out ideas to nexon regarding the stressfullness of using enchantment and burning success rates. In my opinion, the worst part of the process is burning, as the "all or nothing" approach is flat out brutal regardless of what rank the enchant is or your skill ranks/materials used in the process. The enchant system is heavily outdated, so hopefully the GMs notice something they like or come up with something to make the process more up-to-date and doable, and soon.

    @everyone

    I'm really feeling that ping!

    Also why put IGN and Server here? Pretty sure this is not Bugs and Glitches category?

    What we really need is a new enchant that increases enchanting success rates. :D

    I place them there as my signature. Its easier for people to identify me if they happen to be in the same server. If they have any additional questions, and I'm not in the forums, they could contact me via pm, mail, or whisper. My global Nexon name is Nullavie. That name I use across all the forums for Nexon.

    I failed an absolute burn with r1 enchant, r1 campfire and special firewood on Saturday, so I know the feeling. Feels like I just threw 15m away. I really do wish they'd changed the way enchanting works.
