    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.

    [Note]

    it's really nice to be able to enhance anything you want. hopefully it will be like that for future IW.
    Now if only they could increase the chance to get rare and good stats.
    It's really sad doing so many runs to finally get a rare with auto buffs or 3% HP.

    Or keep stats from previous runs and just update the lesser ones on each run.
    Really with rng it would still take a looong time to get the perfect weapon

    To me it looks like they dropped the stupid limit on item types. It would make sense if IW was available every week for different weapons but once per month and with current rare rates this is a good QoL.
    I would be also very happy if they removed autobuffs from the pool, everyone and their dog can AoE buff by 100% and more so those +10-40% are completely useless, even ATK/MAG+3 is better

    Lightning Saber as free TMR this time. That is great elemental weapon!

    They should always give us weapons in the IW. Would be at least a small change that is more likely than the whole system change from the IW itself that everyone wants.

    Had to spend more than 1500 lapis and all orbs to get just one rare. These rates are horrible.

    Oh come on, I specially used a 100% tmr moogle and got myself Mediena's STMR just for this chance. Now, for all this event I got totally zero rares. (not refreshing it, just doing usual 10 morning and evening runs of that Lunar rod). Zero, zilch, black hole level zero rares.

    I agree. I wonder if many other people have been having a hard time getting the rare abilities. I have received one rare ability so far and it wasn't with the best other two possibilities and, currently, I'm up to 308,800 points with just that 1 rare ability. I also just got this combination (the picture) for my Psycho Rod on floor 10, which is currently my strongest rod. Not too sure what to make of it. Last Item World, I only got one rare ability total and during the anniversary two week Item World I got none. I hope everyone else is having much better luck than I have thus far.
