    During this event you can acquire new abilities to enhance your equipment by clearing the event's dungeon.

    You can add up to 3 abilities to any piece of equipment.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    You can access the Equipment Enhancement Event from the button on the home screen.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Select the equipment you wish to enhance.

    [​IMG]

    * If you select equipment currently attached to a unit, it will be unequipped automatically.

    However, please be aware that you will not be asked to confirm whether you would like to automatically unequip any equipment your party is currently using in the Chamber of Arms.

    [​IMG]
    The abilities you can acquire vary from floor to floor.
    Certain equipment types may have a chance to obtain a rare ability.

    Rare abilities set for each individual floor can be seen on the event rules screen by tapping on the "Available Rare Abilities" button.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Select the dungeon, and venture into each floor upon choosing your companion and party.

    [​IMG]

    * You can select a different companion each time you challenge a floor.

    [​IMG]
    Each time you clear a floor, you will obtain event pts and an ability.
    [​IMG]
    There are multiple floors in each dungeon, and by clearing one of them you will always be able to choose from 3 different abilities chosen at random.
    However, you will be able to obtain only 1 of the 3 abilities.

    Select the ability that you want most and it will be added to your equipment undergoing enhancements.

    [​IMG]

    * There is a chance that the 3 abilities to choose from may contain 2 or more copies of the same ability.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    If the equipment undergoing enhancement already has 3 abilities added to it, you may replace 1 of them with one of the new abilities presented to you, or discard all new abilities obtained.

    [​IMG]

    Clearing all the floors available will render the dungeon completed, and equipment enhancements will be finalized.

    If the equipment selected had already been enhanced before, you will be given the option to leave the dungeon with your newly obtained abilities, or with the set you had acquired previously.

    The selection screen will not show if you choose a weapon with no previous enhancement.

    *Following enhancement, the equipment will once again become equippable with its newly added abilities.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    The equipment enhanced during the Equipment Enhancement Event can be viewed from your inventory.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    You can obtain event pts according to your battle results.

    Event Pts: Obtainable upon clearing floors
    Monster Kill Bonus: Obtainable by defeating monsters

    [​IMG]
    You can obtain event rewards based on your event points.

    These event rewards include limited equipment and abilities, which will vary from event to event!

    Completion rewards can be seen by tapping on the Rewards button on the top right of the screen.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    After you clear a floor, you will be given the choice to venture into the next one or retire from the dungeon.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    If you reach the Game Over screen before clearing all the floors in the dungeon, you will lose all abilities obtained up until that point.

    However, you may choose to use lapis to retire from the dungeon in order to keep all of the abilities you obtained for your equipment.

    If you already had an ability set for that particular piece of equipment, your newly obtained abilities will be reversed to that set upon failing to clear the dungeon.

    * If a weapon undergoing enhancement is left in the weapon enhancement dungeon by the time the event has ended, the weapon will be returned with the previous abilities it has acquired. If the weapon is not returned upon the completion of the event, please try restarting the app.

    My ultima weapon is the Hyou ones.
    So is good for Zeno.

    I would love to have that one for Esther, sadly I don’t have.

    Let's see...

    Astraea, Blazefire Sabre, heavily considering re-running my two Erdrick's Swords to boost their ATK, 3 HP Shouts, 2 Missing Scores (so far...both my remaining Barrets are within 35% of another one), Hyades Magnums, Magnati, Mechabo Hammer, Rising Sun (FFVII), Revolving Saw, and Ayaka's Crimson Umbrella, just to name a few...

    Not to mention the gil I need to rebuild in order to 7* Radiant Lightning...

    I'm not exactly seeing a downside here.

    Same, and that's been a MAJOR boon for me the last several weeks. If that kind of luck continues for me, I can only imagine how things are gonna stack up for my latest units...

    Didn't bother to think about what I need right now, went in with Machine Gun + just for the sake of possible 2nd Regina popping out. What do you know - rare on 4th floor. Never happens for the items you really want.

    If I have enough orbs to do so, I usually run a piece of equipment I intend to use on someone through Steel Castle a few times. It's been my experience that, usually, by the 3rd or 4th time you run it through, the rare ability will pop up somewhere.

    Any recommendations on what easy-ish to get gear I could bring onto this event to actually make it worthwhile? I upgraded the genji blade with some nice rare ATK enhancement, but I didnt pay much attention to my gear lately and Im at a loss as to what I could possibly strive for in the next few days to enhance here during the event.

    Ive been looking through the wiki Weapons list and currently have genji blade, excalibur, swordbreaker, Aura staff for my SPR, could maybe get Rod of judgement for star quartz for MAG and about to pump some TMR moogles into Elena to get Astrea and get it upgraded. IDK What else to strive for though because i dont yet know enough weapons in the game.

    Any ideas?

    If I'm going to be honest here...

    Do as many weapons as you can.

    The irony is that it's not so much about what you enhance, it's how many points you can get through the event. If you can fully complete the event even just two times, you can earn enough gil from that, plus maybe the Gil Snappers enhance banner a few times, to upgrade a 6* to 7*. Plus, there's awakening materials, crafting materials, weapons from the points themselves...

    That's my best advice for Steel Castle - do as many runs as you can and get as far as you can in it each time, because it's more about what you get from the points you receive from the enhancements than the enhancements themselves.

    Damn man, that is some straight BS. Sorry to hear that. It took me about 10 refills or so but I finally got my Astraea pimped our. 30% ATK, 20% HP and 10% MAG. That works for me.
