    I believe that Conspiracyl0rd Caliber will back me up on this. When you add a Stat to a weapon via the Steel Castle Melfikya, the next time you go to add a stat of the same type to the same weapon type it becomes less likely to occur.

    For example if I have a bunch of Greatswords with Attack Percentage stats added to them threw the Steel Castle (and I do), the next time I go to enhance a Greatsword in the Steel Castle I will be much less likely to get an Attack Percentage stat and get stuck with a bunch of Magic, Defense, and Spirit stats instead. This is exactly what has been happening to me now, therefor it must be true.

    Been running Bahamut Tear since the event started and have had this happen endlessly. I finally broke my streak and got to Atk 27% but it took maybe 15 or more runs on it to stop getting spirit, MP and Def. Really annoying.

    Total feature. Follows in line with "How do we get them to spend more lapis on something they deem valuable?"

    Every conspiracy so far has technically been a feature. :cool:

    Could it be a programming thing where it won't give you stats on your current run, for say 15% Atk, if it's already on the weapon in the previous saved form?

    Here are a few other theories:
    - it depends on your last run and what you had there
    - it depends on if you run the weapon multiple times in a row or switch weapons every run
    - it depends on what you chose last stage or if you dismissed it
    - it depends on your team and how well you perform on the stages
    - it depends on the weapon and how valuable it is in the meta (often used -> harder to get great enhancements)
    - it depends on the weapon#2: The preferred value is harder to get besides the normally really low percentages for specific values
    - it depends on if you dismissed the last run through or took the new enhancements

    And the final one:
    - there are about 6 different stats with about 7 values for the stat, plus 2 different stats with 5 values, plus 1 stat with 4 values, plus 1 stat with 2 values, plus the rare one, making it 59 possible stats to get each run. Each has shitty rates which get worse the higher the value is. It's RNG which one you get since there are so many possibilities.

    I dunno, when it was first introduced it was much, much easier to get desired stats on weapons. I ran 3 weapons through and got decent rolls even though no rare abilities, and spent the rest of the event running the same weapon through trying for the rare and consistently got good atk values. Next time it was in with different weapons I still got decent stats, as in appropriate to the weapon even if the values were mostly shit (consistently 1-7%).

    Now, though? Straight garbage, run after run. Def, Mag, Spr on GS/Katana. Atk, Def, and HP on Rods. Def and HP on thrown weapons. I managed to get the rare ability on a GS, but the other 2 were Spr 7% and HP 10%, not a single Atk roll on the entire 10 floor run, not even a 1%. If it really was RNG you'd expect to at least occasionally see an appropriate stat on a weapon, lately it has been anything but.

    Since the release of IW I always vary between DPS type weapons and support/tank type weapons and so far it works really well. Not cuz of conspiracy, but rather of not „trying too hard“ on one weapon.

    Same to me. And my rainbow getting rate lately. And speaking as a software developer, I can say that it all depends on whether they want to do it or not. Because it's quite easy to implement that. Just put a counter and a conditonal check in and that'll do it.

    Well, all above is true, so I stopped to care. I went and made the latest Maneater katana 15%spr/15%def and the only 5%atk I got in the whole run, good enough as secondary in arena with my Masamune (bonus on this one). Scumi just cannot make me mad anymore! :D

    Everything over 20% is fine for me. I run as much as possible. If I get additional stats -> wonderful. If not -> welp, okay. Let's be real at some point: If you run Hyoh 7* with 2,2k ATK it doesn't matter if your weapon has 20% or 25% bonus, these few ATK it adds will not change much. You'll rape everything anyways.

    To add to the conspiracy, if you get all 3 6% stats on 6 weapons, you can summon ̶T̶h̶e̶ ̶d̶e̶v̶i̶l̶ gumi
