Since there are no definitive guide to handle all cases for apparel fusion, I'll attempt to write a short guide to explain some of the basics of apparel fusion.

First Step:  You and Your apparel

To obtain apparel you need to buy if from the item mall or buy it ingame from another player (via shop or trade).  When you first get it, your apparel will be blank with no stats.  Don't freak out, thats how it is to start and we will make it MUCH better soon.  

Second Step:  Fusing Your apparel (no Gems)

1.)   Now that you have your apparel you need a fusion scoll.  But this either from the IM or cheap in game (~5K-15K on Penguin)
2.)   Get your favorite piece of equipment, be it weapon or armor, and head to the Shaitan black smith:  Smithy (902,3495)
3.)   Talk to him and choose fuse apparel.
4.)   Drag your fusion scroll into the top middle slot.
5.)   Drag your apparel into the top left slot.
6.)   Drag your weapon/armor into the top right slot.
7.)   At the bottom now click "fuse apparel."
8.)   Confirm selection for designated price.

At this point you should see some swirling light and a little firework go off to show it competed.  Congratulations, you've just made your first fused apparel!!!  Here is my example for how it should go:

Tri-blader Shirt + Battle Armor of Kylin + Fusion scroll + 60K gold = lvl 10 Tri-blader Shirt (BUT WITH KYLIN STATS!!!)

Third Step:  Advanced Fusion, Gemmin' It UP!!!

I am going to ASSUME you already have a piece of fused with a gem.  If you do not know how to gem your equipment, please refer to the guide index's fusing guide.

1.)  Get your favorite piece of gemmed equip and head back to Smithy:  Shaitan (902,3495)
2.)  Talk to him and choose fuse apparel.
4.)   Drag your fusion scroll into the top middle slot.
5.)   Drag your apparel into the top left slot.
6.)   Drag your weapon/armor into the top right slot.
7.)   Drag your fusion catalyst into the appropriate slot.  (will follow with which one it is later)
8.)   At the bottom now click "fuse apparel."
9.)   Confirm selection for designated price.

At this point you should see some swirling light and a little firework go off to show it competed.  Congratulations, you've just made your fused apparel WITH A GEM!!!  Here is my example for how it should go:

Sword of Azure Thunder + Spike of Sistine (+1) + Fusion scroll + gold (idk what it is, this is hypothetica)l = lvl 10 Sword of Zure Thunder +1

Fourth Step:  So Your NOT Happy and Need To Get Stronger Stuff

So now you have stronger equips and you want to fuse over your old stuff.  You got your nice new Hermes Framestong and are ready to kick the old Battle Armor of Kylin to the curb.  Well this is just as simple as before.  Just follow the process for step 2:

1.)   Now that you have your apparel you need a fusion scoll.  But this either from the IM or cheap in game (~5K-15K on Penguin)
2.)   Get your favorite piece of equipment, be it weapon or armor, and head to the Shaitan black smith:  Smithy (902,3495)
3.)   Talk to him and choose fuse apparel.
4.)   Drag your fusion scroll into the top middle slot.
5.)   Drag your apparel into the top left slot.
6.)   Drag your weapon/armor into the top right slot.
7.)   At the bottom now click "fuse apparel."
8.)   Confirm selection for designated price.

At this point you should see some swirling light and a little firework go off to show it competed.  Congratulations, you've just upgraded to something better!!

lvl 10 Tri-blader Shirt + Heremes Framestone + Fusion scroll + gold = lvl 10 Tri-blader Shirt (BUT WITH HERMES STATS!!!)

Fifth Step:  Framestones Aren't Good Enough, They Could Get Better?!?!?!

Well now you realized, "Huh, I got this great stuff but I'm just short of god-hood.  I should finally upgrade."  So now I will detail how to upgrade your apparel.

Here is a special note.  Tales of Pirates has not instituted the apparel fusion system where the item starts at lvl 0 with 80% efficiency.  Every mall item fused starts at lvl 10 (100% effiiciency) and is upgradable to 15 (110%).  You gain a 2% stat boost per lvl of apparel.

1.)   You now need a Strenthening scroll and a Strengthening catalys.  Buy the scroll either from the IM or cheap in game (~10K-20K on Penguin) and the catalyst the same way (unsure of ingame prices).
2.)   Get beautiful apparel with it frame stone that wasn't good enough, and head to the Shaitan black smith:  Smithy (902,3495)
3.)   Talk to him and choose upgrade apparel.
4.)   Drag your Str scroll into its slot.
5.)   Drag your apparel into its slot.
6.)   Drag your catalyst into the appropriate slot.
7.)   At the bottom now click "upgrade apparel."
8.)   Confirm selection for designated price.

Your result after the fireworks will be an upgraded piece of apparel.  YAY, now you gained an extra 2% on all your stats.  Here is an example:

lvl 10 Tri-blader Shirt + Str Scroll + Str Catalystl + A LOT of gold = lvl 11 Tri-blader Shirt

Sixth Step:  Special Cases

These are just good things to know about apparel.

1.)  If you try to fuse a piece of equip on top of apparel that has been fused AND upgraded, you WILL LOSE YOUR LVL.  For example:

lvl 11 Tri-blader Shirt + Heremes Framestone + Fusion scroll + gold = lvl 10 Tri-blader Shirt (but with Hermes Stats) <-----Notice its now only lvl 10 NOT 11

So don't just upgrade your apparel if you know you'll be refusing it later.  Upgrading is EXPENSIVE.  So if you're Mr MoneyBags, then do what you want.

2.)  If you try to fuse a new weapon or armor into apparel that already has a gem in it, you will lose the gem from the apparel.  Example;

Sword of Azure Thunder + Fencing Sword (+1) + catalyst = lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder +1
lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder (+1) + Spike of Sistine (w/socket) + catalyst = lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder (no gem)

and

Sword of Azure Thunder + Fencing Sword (+1) + catalyst = lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder +1
lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder (+1) + str scroll + str catalys = lvl 11 Sword of Azure Thunder +1
lvl 11 Sword of Azure Thunder (+1) + Spike of Sistine + catalyst = lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder (no gem)

3.) Gems from new equip replace old gems on apparel.  Example:

Sword of Azure Thunder + Fencing Sword (+1 Fiery Gem) + catalyst + gold = lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder +1 (Fiery Gem)
lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder +1 (Fiery Gem) + Blade of Enigma +1 (Gem of Rage) + catalyst + gold = lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder +1 (Gem of Rage)

4.)  Weapons with sockets don't retain gems from apparel.  Example:

Sword of Azure Thunder + Fencing Sword (+1) + catalyst = lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder +1
lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder (+1) + Spike of Sistine (w/socket) + catalyst = lvl 10 Sword of Azure Thunder w/ 1 socket(no gem)

The same will apply here if you have multiple sockets on the Spike.  You would have 2 or 3 empty sockets on the apparel.  I am usure if you can fuse a gem directly into the apparel if it has an open socket.  I will investigate this later, or if anyone can tell me then I will update that info in a new bullet.


Class Requirements:

1.  Armor does NOT have a class requirement as of yet, but it DOES have a character requirement.  This means that all apparel equipment is specific to Lance, Carlisle, Phylis, or ami.  So lets take my example of the Tri-blader Shirt from earlier.  This is a Lance apparel.  It can be worn by noobs, explorers, voyagers, hunters, sharp shooters, Crusaders, and swordsman as long as the character is a Lance.  You cannpt give this to a Carlisle and have him equip it (same goes for Ami and Phylis).

2.)  Weapons DO have class requirements.  There are certain weapons only equipable by Crusaders, others by voagers, and so on.  Some on the other hand are not class specific.  Here are a couple examples.  The sword of azure thunder is a 1-handed sword specific to swordsman.  This means a voyager may NOT equip this, nor forge any daggers into it.  Now consider the Poop on a Stick, lol, this is labeled a "1-handed sword" but is not listed with a class or character requirement.  Both Poop on a stick and foldable chair can be equipped by all classes (and the poop is depicted as being held by a Phylis).  PLEASE first READ the description before purchasing any item mall apparel weapons so you know whether they are equippable to your class.


Well, I have covered every scenario I can think of.  I hope this helps, and if there is anything I can add, let me know and I will update this.  Also, I will try to add screens and update the locations for placing certain items after checking at home.
