Panzar Forging Guide!**Introduction**There have been many complaints on the forums about forging being difficult, forging being at 15% success not 50% success rate, and other silly things.

I am laying all these false accusations to rest with REAL MATH!

I am going to prove to you that Panzar actually in fact has one of the easiest upgrading systems in any game. Most games have much lower success rates to upgrade weapons and armour without pure speccing into a class or profession. This is because you have a flat above average success rate of 70-60% for every upgrade level.

**Guidelines**Only

**work on one piece of armour at a time**! I cannot stress this enough! Do not think that swapping between different pieces of armour will up your success rates. It stays 50% every single time.

Luck does not exist in math!

You will need money and time, grab some popcorn and a movie, and start clicking.

**Rules****One Fail = One Attempt** Eg. You are going for +5 and you get up to +4 then it fails, that is only 1 attempt.

You upgrade once and it fails, that is 1 attempt. It succeeds twice and then fails, that is 1 attempt. All together so far, you've completed 3 attempts out of 32 for +5 equip.

**An attempt is every time it fails to reach your goal.****Important Info**The

**+# does not matter!** The actual upgrade matters.

In this sense, a +4 equip can be better than a +7 equip if all you want is mastery upgrades, and the +7 has 6 HPs and 1 Mastery, and the +4 has 4 masteries.

You know which is which by these icons:

**The sword** = Mastery increase - Each sword adds mastery

**The shield** = HP increase - Each shield adds HP

If you wish to run a full HP character, all you want is shield. Therefore, even if you reach +8 like you wanted, if you had 7 swords, you might as well trash it!

**Formula**Chance of success= (1/2) ^X = 1/the amount of attempts to get what you want

Chance of total failure after X amount of attempts = (x/y) ^y - This is the chance of failing even after doing the calculated amount of attempts and still not reaching your goal.
