    So we all know over the last 3 IW the TRUE rare ability has been Auto-Refresh lvl2. I've seen... 4? Rare abilities total over the last 3 IW and only 1 Auto-Refresh lvl2... That seems to have changed.

    Using some lapis and a BUNCH of banked pots, I seem to have gotten auto-refresh lvl2 on all but 2 full laps. I'd say.. 200? or so orbs have been burned thus far this morning. Hilariously, no rare abilities.

    edit:
    Have blown a bunch of Lapis running up to stage 2.

    IW seems to be bugged at the moment - level 2 appears to be yielding the top 2 tiers of abilities. 12/15% single stat, lvl2 auto refresh, lvl5 auto spr/etc, lvl4 auto regen(Is there a lvl5)

    That said, doesn't seem to have made rare abilities appear any more often.

    edit2:
    Unsure if it got ninjaed - just tried a Sledgehammer and lvl2 is giving normal ol boring %s.

    Never actually looked out for auto refresh.
    I've always been focused on main stats as opposed to the side abilities (high tide not counted here)

    It's not a bad call though.
    I'll drop a post if it pops up now I'm looking lol.

    Main Intent is High Tide/Auto Refresh/HP|MP on daggers for support.

    I got auto-refresh lv. 2 on my first run today but I accidentally brought a party full of hobos that got smoked on the 9th floor.

    I feel IW needs a boost or a "increased rate" as you do not find anything. I've ran over 100 FULL IW runs. I've received 1 rare ability and zero level 1 or 2 auto-refresh....

    IW does get a boost as such lol, but sadly not to rates.
    JP side got increased buffs on the rare abilities (40% HP on maces, 40% ATK etc)

    I've seen auto refresh a couple of times, but still only seen a single high tide on all my runs.

    I never saw any refresh, even lvl1, so far. Both in the past and in the current events.

    I don't usually go off half cocked with numbers/speculation on this type of stuff.

    I may also be in for the largest dry spell I've ever seen lol.. Just seems that autorefresh lvl2 was the rarest ability to get on an item prior to this IW, most folks are in a similar boat as me, 0-1 sightings across the last 3 IW, then today I've seen it no less than 9 times - primarily appears on lvl2-3.

    Regardless, may be a luck streak for me.

    And there is another one, 2f.

    I get a rare every time we got IW. I have never seen the top level HP or MP regen skills.

    Just finished my first pass. Sledgehammer got +5% hp, +10% spr, and auto spirit 40%. Figured it is going for my merc ramza when going for magic tanking duty.

    2nd pass of this IW and on the 2nd round I get MP refresh 2 and HP regen 4 as my choices. If this is a thing now I am very happy. What made this even better is that it was going onto a bowie knife that previously had crummy enhancements. I hope I can snag some HP and high tide on it.

    Just to half folks keep half an eye out rather than assuming it is auto spr/def/something and ignore it as we tend to be programmed lol..

    Just landed yet another one on level 2 (Next lap)

    Feels like this is sliding a bit beyond RNGesus being kind - as my earlier point still stands. The previous 3 IW I had seen 1 Auto Refresh, today I've seen a dozen. Some folks had it estimated way below 1% appearance rate - which I think would put me somewhere around 0.000000000001% chance of seeing what I have gotten thus far this morning.... Should have bought a powerball ticket I guess.

    I have gotten max level abilities on floor 2 numerous times now! Like my 3 options have been auto defense lv 5, mp +15%, and auto spirit lv 5

    or some combination of abilities like that (although none I ever want on the current equipment) it's been weird though

    Similar case, I've seen a lot more 15% to a single stat than I had ever before on level 2.

    TBH I think I've seen more 15% single stats more today than I have the last 3 IW as well... mostly seems to be floor 2. Just got the 10% moogle and no rare abilities today lol..
