Want to breathe new life into that old Axe? Has your Sword become a little blunt, or want to make your armor shine a little? Refine it! Refined armor and weapons boosts your attributes, making you more powerful on the battlefield. It comes with a little risk, but these are outweighed by the benefits.
Find an item to refine and collect all the necessary materials needed to refine it. You'll need some Chemical Materials, Refinement Material, and Hearts if you plan to refine your item above +3. The amount of materials you will need changes depending on the items refinement level and the type of item itself.
A range of Chemical Materials can be used for refining. They can all be found under .
|Refinement Level||Chemical Materials||Refinement Materials||Hearts|

Place the item you wish to refine into the Target Item slot. The required refinement materials will be shown in the boxes below it, and you should drag the required materials into those boxes. When you're ready, click 'Begin'.
If the refine is successful, a 'Success' animation will be shown and a confirmation window will be shown.
If the refine fails, a 'Failed' animation will be shown. The item may decrease in attributes or refinement level if a refinement fails. In the worst case, your item may be destroyed.
