Ok ima attempt to make a neat and understandable Forging and Apparel fusion guide for all you ppl that dont have a clue about forging/fusion and for all you ppl that dont understand how the forging system works in this game , im making this guide slowy so bear with me and check back often to see if ive added anything usefull

First things first,

To forge an item you will need an item ( preferably socketed already, if not the items needed to make a socket can be baught via the item mall " equipment Stabilizer and Catalyst )

So you have your item that you wanna forge, and it already has a socket lets say its a lvl 50 Spike of Sistine ( lvl 50 crus sword from eva crus chest, seeing as its from a chest you will have to buy the socketing items to make a socket on it ) and you wanna forge it with fiery gems to give your sword that little extra kick,                  

Take your sword, a lvl 1 Fiery Gem and a lvl 1 Refining Gem and go to the BlackSmith in Shaitain " Smithy " located at 902,3495

Once your there speak to him and select Forge

After that you need to place you items into the correct boxes

Once you have placed all your items in the correct places click the Forge Button, a box should pop up asking you if you want to confirm the price and forge, click yes.Your item should now be +1

So thats the very basic steps of forging, lemme explain how to further forge your eq.

You cant just straight forge a lvl 2 gem into a clean item.. you need to build the lvl of the gems up.This is what combining is for,

ok so assuming you forged your sword with a fiery gem using the steps above your sword should now be +1 with a lvl 1 fiery gem,

so now you will be wanting to forge your sword more to make it stronger so now you will be making it +2 then +3 n so on

to make it +2 ( providing your still forging the fiery gem ) you will need 2x lvl 1 fiery gems and 2x lvl 1 refining gems and now you will need to combine them to make the gems lvl 2 or else you cant make +2 ,

To combine gems you need to go to the Grocer " Amos " in shaitan 842 , 3585
Speak to him and trade him and purchase a Gem Composition scroll

Now that you have the scroll you can combine the gems, so speak to amos again and click Combine

Ok first of all you need to place you Gem Composition Scroll into Box1
Then you need to place once of your lvl 1 fiery gems into Box 2 and the other lvl 1 fiery gem into Box 3
Once the 3 ingredients are in place click combine and voilla you should end up with a lvl 2 fiery gem ( now repeat for the refining gem using the same method )
Note that combining gems costs 50k for each combine and can add up if your mass forging

So now you have a lvl 2 fiery n a lvl 2 refining gem, go forge them into your sword using the simple steps at the top, now your sword should be +2 with a lvl 2 fiery inside

Getting the hang of it yet ? lets not stop there ^^

Now you will be wanting  to make it +3 fiery, for this you will need 4 x lvl 1 fiery gems and refining gems so  now to make a lvl 3 gem you will need to combine the gems so you have 2x lvl 2 fiery gems and refining gems after that you need to combine then lvl 2 gems together to make a lvl 3 gem (using the same combining method as above ) get how this is working yet?

now you have the lvl 3 fiery n refining gem you will go forge again to make your sword +3 with lvl 3 fiery gem and once you have finished that your sword will have a +12 damage bonus, nice huh ^^

Heres the amout of gems needed for a certain lvl gem

Lvl 1 gem = 1 gem
lvl  2 gem = 2 gems    ( 2 x  lvl  1 gems combined to make it lvl 2 )
lvl  3 gem = 4 gems    ( 4 x  lvl  1 gems combined to make it lvl 3 )
lvl  4 gem = 8 gems    ( 8 x  lvl  1 gems combined to make it lvl 4 )
lvl  5 gem = 16 gems  ( 16 x lvl 1 gems combined to make it lvl 5  )
lvl  6 gem = 32 gems  ( 32 x lvl 1 gems combined to make it lvl 6  )
lvl  7 gem = 64 gems  ( 62 x lv  1 gems combined to make it lvl 7 )
lvl  8 gem = 128 gems ( 128 x lvl 1 gems combined to make it lvl 8 )
lvl  9 gem = 256 gems ( 256 x lvl 1 gems combined to make it lvl 9 )

lvl 9 is the max lvl of any attribute gem ( max lvl of refining gem is unlimited i think but seeing in 1.33 the lvl of refining gem needed for forging is the lvl of the attribute gem your forging not the forged lvl of the item, so lets say you have a sword with 2 sockets n you wanna forge gem of rage n eye of bd into it, say you  forge it to +6 with lvl 3 eye n lvl 3 rage you will only need a max of lvl 3 ref gem for each type of gem, where as before in 1.32 - would need a lvl 6 ref gem to make an item lvl 6 regardless of how many diff gems are forged into the item, does thaat make sense ? = )

any way if you didnt notice the amout of gems needed for  the next lvl gem is double the previous lvl, also there is a failure rate of foring and combining gems after lvl 3 so if your planning to combine and forge  a gem lvl 4 + be prepaid for a failure ( but when forging with 2 sockets and 2 diff gems you can make an item up to +6 with 100% success )

so hm thats the basics of forging into 1 socket lemme explain a little about forging into a 2nd socket

Currently the max # of sockets you can have on an item is 2, it used to be 3 in version 1.32 - but the chance of making a 3rd socket was around 1% success rate if i remember and the success rate of making a 2nd socket was either 20% or 50% success rate not too sure lol, But seeing as top is version 1.33 we dont have to worry about that and making a first and second socket is 100% success rate

( ill add how to make sockets later )

ok so youve made your 2nd socket on your wep ( still using our Spike of Sistine as the example item here ) and its currently +3 with lvl 3 fiery inside ( +12 attack bonus all together ) and you wanna forge some lustrious gems inside to get that extra hitrate which is so helpfull for solo lvling :p

Using the same steps as forging into just 1 socket we will forge the 2nd socket with a lustrious gem, repeat all the forging and combining steps as above just as if your forging a clean item and once youve accomplished this your sword should now be +4 with lvl 3 fiery and lvl 1 lustrious gem inside with a +12 attack bonus and a +5 hitrate bonus

* Note that because your forging into 2 sockets you will not fail foring it after lvl 3 untill you trying forge your item past +6, thats when the fail rate kicks in  *

Also the lvl of the refining gem needed for forging MUST be the same lvl as the attribute gem your forging

Also the reason why most ppl forge there items, well weapons really is for the glowing effect

Heres a list of the colours that each gem glows when forged into a weapon

Spirit gem/Gem of Soul/God Of Ascaron = Gold/Yellow glow
Furious gem = Red glow
Fiery gem = Red glow
Lustrious gem = Red glow
Shadow gem = Blue glow
Gem of Rage = Gold/Yellow glow ( just like spirit gem )
Eye of Black Dragon = Red/Pink Glow

I think thats all the gems that you can forge into weapons, if not someone lemme know n ill add onto it

Also when forging armour, your armour will not glow its only weapons that glow.

The cool thing about mass forging is that after a certain lvl of forging the weapon has a bigger aura/glow/effect, you get these effects from forging a weapon to lvl 5 and an even better effect when you forge a weapon to +9 ( + 10 is the highest me or my friends has forged to so im not sure if theres any more effects for forging past lvl 9, but i do know that for forging into a 3rd socket gets a special effect that really makes your weapons stand out but unfortunatly thats not possible anymore :( )

So far ive forged my champ/ss and crus weapons to +5 to get the +5 effect, heres what they look like ( not trying to showoff hehe :p )

Heres my Crusaders swords
( the +5 effect is some swirling rings around the blade, kinda hard to see on my swords but noticable ingame ^^ the +9 effect for swords stops the rings from swirling but they stand out alot more and when you look at the swords close up it has a fiery effect like the swords on fire but you rly have to look at it to notice lol )

Heres my Champs Hammer
( its a big spike on the end of the hammer, the +9 effect makes the spike on the top of it a little bigger but it also creates a HUGE spike coming from the handle and its so noticeable, ill get a ss of one from one of my pko friends

Heres my SharpShooters Gun
kinda hard to see ( its hard to describe and i havent seen the +9 effect for guns )

(ill add apparel fusion soon )

Hope this is understandable, i know the red on the pics is kinda hard to see but ill add some clearer ones later on,

if ive missed anything out or if anything ive written is incorrect dont be afraid to correct me xD

have fun forging ^^

also if your a forging freak like me post your eq too  :P
