 Enchantments, Manastones & Godstones Guide

Enchantments, Manastones & Godstones Guide

In Aion, there are three basic ways to enchant, or enhance, your gear. The first is using Enchantment stones, the second is using Manastones, and the third is using Godstones. In this guide, I will cover all three with much detail. Aion’s system of enhancing your gear is quite different and more complicated than most other systems.

Enchantments

The most frustrating parts of learning how to enhance is learning that THEY CAN FAIL! Not only can they fail, but failing can have negative side-effects for your gear! This is why you must read the guide below so that you do not lose your time, your character’s money, or your cool!

Before you can use Enchantment stones, you must create them. In order to create them, visit a nearby General Goods Merchant and purchase Extraction Tools. One set of tools is used per extraction. In order to extract, you must Right-Click on the Extraction Tools and then Left-Click on the item you wish to extract from.

There are some important guidelines! First, you can only extract from items that can be enhanced. These are your chest slot, legs slot, shoulders slot, hands slot, feet slot, primary slot, and secondary slot. Second, when you extract from an item, that item is destroyed. Do not extract from items you wish to keep or use, obviously.

Once you have extracted an item, you will receive Enchantment stones. They come in the form: Level # Enchantment. The level corresponds to an item’s level, not your level.

Enchantment stone

Now that you know how to extract and create Enchantment stones, I will tell you how you apply them to an item. The first important part is figuring out the level of the item you wish to enhance. Quite simply, the item’s level is the required level to use that item (but there is more!). This can typically be found just by looking at the item’s statistics, as it will say what level is required. For some items, such as quest rewards, there is no given level on the item. In order to figure out the level of these items, you must know what level the quest was that resulted in that item. For instance, if a quest said “Level 10″ in front of it and completing it resulted in an item, that item’s level would be 10.

Once you know your item’s level, the next step is figuring out what level Enchantment stone to use. In order to do this, you must know whether the item is of White rarity, Green rarity, Blue rarity, or Orange rarity. You can simply do this by looking at the item and seeing what color the item’s name is written in. Once you know the item’s level and its color use the following to figure out what Enchantment stone to use:

White Item = Item’s Level +1-10 Levels
Green Item = Item’s Level +5-20 Levels
Blue Item = Item’s Level +15-40 Levels
Orange Item = Item’s Level +30-50 Levels

When using an Enchantment stone from the above guide, take note that using the lower extremity will cause you to have a lower chance of success. If you have a Level 10 White item, you will have a higher percent of success if you use a Level 13 Enchantment stone than if you used a Level 11 Enchantment stone. Also, if you use too high of an Enchantment stone, your chance of success will be diminished as well.

Now that you know how to create Enchantment stones and use them to enhance your gear, you must be wondering what the point of it all is! Each item can be enhanced up to 10 times. Although this seems fairly easy to obtain, you can take either two paths to reaching it. One involves spending lots of your character’s money on purchasing the best-to-use Enchantment stones; the other involves spending lots of risk on using lower level Enchantment stones that will sometimes fail. What happens when you fail? Your item loses one level of enhancement! This is why it is important to use the correct level Enchantment stones. The good news is that items cannot reach negative enhancement levels; it will stop at 0. The bad news, obviously, is that it can take quite a bit of time and money to reach 10.

The following shows what bonuses come with each enhancement level. Remember, each item can reach a maximum of 10, so multiple each bonus by 10 to figure out the maximum.

Plate
Chest = +6 Physical Defense per level
Legs = +5 Physical Defense per level
Pauldron = +4 Physical Defense per level
Gloves = +4 Physical Defense per level
Boots = +4 Physical Defense per level

Chain
Chest = +5 Physical Defense per level
Legs = +4 Physical Defense per level
Pauldron = +3 Physical Defense per level
Gloves = +3 Physical Defense per level
Boots = +3 Physical Defense per level

Leather
Chest = +4 Physical Defense per level
Legs = +3 Physical Defense per level
Pauldron = +2 Physical Defense per level
Gloves = +2 Physical Defense per level
Boots = +2 Physical Defense per level

Cloth
Chest = +3 Physical Defense per level
Legs = +2 Physical Defense per level
Pauldron = +1 Physical Defense per level
Gloves = +1 Physical Defense per level
Boots = +1 Physical Defense per level

Primary
Polearm = +4 Minimum and Maximum Weapon Damage per level
Greatsword = +4 Minimum and Maximum Weapon Damage per level
Bows = +4 Minimum and Maximum Weapon Damage per level
Staff = +3 Minimum and Maximum Weapon Damage per level, +10 Magic Boost per level
Sword = +2 Minimum and Maximum Weapon Damage per level
Dagger = +2 Minimum and Maximum Weapon Damage per level
Mace = +3 Minimum and Maximum Weapon Damage per level, +10 Magic Boost per level
Orb = +4 Minimum and Maximum Weapon Damage per level, +10 Magic Boost per level
Spellbook = +3 Minimum and Maximum Weapon Damage per level, +10 Magic Boost per level

Secondary
Shield = +2% Damage Reduction per level

After reading this, you should now be a pro when it comes to enhancing your items, extraction, and Enchantment stones. The next part of the guide will discuss the use of Manastones.

Manastones

ManastoneManastones contain a certain statistic and a certain value. For example, Manastone: Accuracy +12. In this case, this Manastone would add 12 to your Accuracy value if you placed it into a socket of one of your equipped items. Similar to the enhancing, only the following slots contain sockets: chest slot, legs slot, shoulders slot, hands slot, feet slot, primary slot, and secondary slot. Also, the higher the rarity of the item, the more sockets it contains:

White Item = 1-2 Socket
Green Item = 2-3 Sockets
Blue Item = 3-4 Sockets
Orange Item = 4-5 Sockets

Similar to enhancing, placing Manastones into sockets can fail. The penalty for this is that all Manastones already in sockets and the Manastone you just used for that item are destroyed, returning the item to all empty sockets. The positive is that this is quite rare, and usually only occurs when placing a high level Manastone into a low level item. However, at this time, there is no way to tell the exact level of a Manastone; just know that the higher the value, the higher the level. Also, green Manastones are harder to socket than white Manastones.

When the game is released, there will be level requirements on Manastones which will make it easier to tell the level of the Manastone.

A good strategy for placing Manastones into sockets (when an item has more than 1 socket) is to socket your least valued Manastone first and your most valued Manastone last. This way, the chance for failing and wasting your most valued Manastone is reduced to a minimum.

You can also remove Manastones from items by visiting a <Remove Manastone> NPC. These are usually found around major cities and towns. You pay a small fee and the NPC will remove your desired Manastone from your item. However, the Manastone will be destroyed in the process.

The following list shows all Manastones and their possible values:

Manastone: Attack (Adds to your Attack value)

Godstones

The last part of this guide will discuss Godstones. These are used on all weapon items. The basic premise of a Godstone is to apply some sort of ability, which triggers at a certain percent, to inflict your target with.

Godstones can be found throughout the higher level content of the game. They can be found in similar ways that Manastones can be found, only with a significant less frequency. They can also be obtained as quest rewards. Once you obtain a Godstone, you can visit a Godstone Enchanter NPC, which are usually found in large cities only, and have them enable the Godstone to your weapon for a fee. You may also remove Godstones in a similar fashion as Manastones.

When a weapon becomes enabled by a Godstone, it will receive a partical effect. This means that your weapon will now have a specific type of glow depending on which Godstone you used. Each type of Godstone (Bleed, Blind, etc) has its own color and effect.

    Could u explain this part again?

    “Once you know your item’s level, the next step is figuring out what level Enchantment stone to use. In order to do this, you must know whether the item is of White rarity, Green rarity, Blue rarity, or Orange rarity. You can simply do this by looking at the item and seeing what color the item’s name is written in.

    Green Item = Item’s Level +5-20 Levels

    When using an Enchantment stone from the above guide, take note that using the lower extremity will cause you to have a lower chance of success. If you have a Level 10 White item, you will have a higher percent of success if you use a Level 13 Enchantment stone than if you used a Level 11 Enchantment stone.”
    I dont quite get what u mean by the whole items lvl +1-10 and a few other things, does the items go up +1 to 10 lvs?

    As the author of this article:

    http://www.kfguides.com/amgemg.html

    The part you quoted with the +1-10, etc… is a formula for figuring out which level Enchantment stones to use.

    For example, if you have a Level 10 white item, you should use Enchantment stones that are in the range of 10 +1-10…. so 11, 12, 13, 14, etc… all the way to 20.

    If you have a Level 10 green item, you should use a range of Enchantment stones Level 15 through 30.

    And so on.

    Hello there, not sure if this is something they changed since you wrote this post, but I enhanced my staff in OB the past few days and got it up to +8. This added +160 Magic Boost to the staff, so the bonus would be +20 per enhance level, I think. I do remember only seeing +10, though on the first level, so maybe it is a scaling number, but I’m not sure. I just remember at +6 enhance level, my MB total was 476 and when I unequipped my staff it went down to 42. My staff had 300 base MB with a +14 MB Manastone, so that would be 356 which leaves 120. That would be +20 per enhance lvl at +6 enhancement. Again, not sure if it is something they changed since you wrote this. Awesome article, though, great info!

  4. clid says:

    Krinadon got it right. It’s a bit different for green, blue and orange items.

  5. Takameanie says:

    How do we enhance level 50 legendary items? Is the only way to enhance these going to be to extract from other legendary drops? If so, seems like it will be extremely expensive to enhance orange items. Will be hard to get your hands on level 80-100 enhancement stones, unless high level mobs drop level 80 trash gear that will only be used to extract from.

  6. Anoymouse says:

    Correction about this part:
    “Green Item = 2-3 Sockets
    Blue Item = 3-4 Sockets
    Orange Item = 4-5 Sockets”
    This is false.
    Green items range from 2-4.
    Blue items ranges from 3-5.
    Orange Items range from 4-6.
    As far as I know, only PVP gear have the maximum number of sockets.
