Bona Fide Bootlegs Event

04082015_Bona-Fide-Bootlegs_detailpage.jpg

Shugos are professionals when it comes to dealing goods but recently a couple of them got involved with bootlegs. While not at the standard of Shugo craftmanship, Macrunerk and Yenrinerk have discovered phasing items into our world by pulling it from another dimension. In order for the phased item to continue to exist, it must be aetherized by enchantment stones. Enchant any bootleg items offered by Macrunerk and Yenrinerk to the items max enchantment level and at the end of the event, you’ll receive the actual item! This is great for gear you’ve been wanting to get your hands on!

 

- How to Participate -

Legitimate Bootleg

Purchase a Bootleg Modor’s Weapon or Armor Box from Macrunerk or Bootleg Abyss Weapon or Armor Box from Yenrinerk to enchant. The Bootleg Modor's Boxes are Mythic, while the Bootleg Abyss Boxes are actually Eternal gear despite the color. You will still need to treat the bootlegs like a Mythic should you chose to use any supplements or Felicitous Socketing. Each bootleg box contains items only your class can use and you can select the item you wish to enchant. To successfully convert the bootleg into the real deal, you must successfully enchant the item to its max enchantment level. Once reaching the max, the bootleg will be phased into the real item once the event period is over. Item enhancements such as manastones, godstones, and augmenting/conditioning will also transfer over on the max enchantment level bootlegs! To aid you on our your success of reaching the max enchantment level for the item (or items), all unsuccessful enchantment between level 10 to 15 will only result in the loss of one enchantment level, instead of going back to +10!

Any bootlegs with enchantments lower than the items max will be removed from the game after the event ends. In the meantime, you can still use the item!

Enchant All the Things

During the event period, enchanting armor and weapons will also receive the benefit of only losing one enchantment level should the enchantment fail. This does not apply to accessories.

 

- Location -

Macrunerk and Yenrinerk can be found by the Legions Board in Pandaemonium and Elyos Square in Sanctum.

 

- Rewards -

Players who fully enchant a bootleg weapon or armor will receive the real item at the end of the event.
