Do Rosemerry Gloves Reforge Rank up?

After x25 Refined Reforging Tools PLUS and x15 Premium Reforging Tools (Over 200m spent), my gloves are still at Rank 3.
Am I doing something wrong? Can these gloves not be ranked up with Reforging Tools?

    Only 40 reforges? Well of course they didn't rank up.

    Fine Reforges have a 4.76% chance to go from rank 3 to rank 2, and a 1% chance to go from rank 2 to rank 1, I don't have the exact rates for the refined variants but you should expect to need several hundred reforges to get an item from rank 3 to rank 1 regardless of how many billions of gold you sink into them due to hyperinflation.

    Keeping in mind that 4.76% and 1% chances are per reforge, and each attempt is a separate gamble with probability, using 100 reforges doesn't translate directly to 1 of them always triggering the 1% chance for rank 1. Personally I've had an armor take over 300 reforges just to go to rank 2, an other times I've had a weapon jump from r3 to r1 in 3 reforges, the Mabinogi equivalent of rolling that tripple 7, which is the most important thing to keep in mind, reforges are gambling, most of the time you wont win but the dopamine hit makes you "need" to keep rolling and making the casino more cash.

    Also Credne reforges have 9% for 3->2 and 1.96% for 2->1 but it's almost not worth mentioning due to the price disparity between fines, certainly on Nao where a Credne is 5m+ vs a fine 1.2~m.

    TL;DR Reforge = slot machine you have to keep paying if you want that 777 (Ice spear explosion radius 20)

    The average(anecdotal) is between 300-500. Anything less is "Lucky" and anything more is "bad luck".

    Personally...I've been there with the r1 in 3 tools and r1 in a little over 1000.

    The reforge addicts are prolly wat keeps NA's service running tho...

    No, it's gacha whales who seek latest fashion or/and power creep items.
