    the success chance stat you see is rounded up to 2 decimal places.

    If you see 100% and still fail, that's understandable because there is that small ~0.001% chance of failing, but with that luck, seriously, go buy a couple of lottery tickets.

    This.

    If you don't count that as a first hand account, I don't know what you'll accept.

    If I recall, upgrading to frostmetal is not a 100% chance at 100% xp? But I could be wrong, even though I just did it not that long ago. I wasn't paying that much attention at the time.

    Also, still technically a rumor. There is no substantive proof of this story.

    I 'm not saying it might not be true--I'm saying that now we have the idea it might be possible, that if this is happening we should surely be able to get some evidence we can take to BHS--because 100% chance should be 100% chance.

    Especially if this is happening as often as has been implied, someone should be able to post a screenshot of the gear failing. I know that as I upgrade all 13 of my Twistshard alts, I'll have my finger poised over the screenshot button to catch that moment of success or failure, and I'll have taken a shot before hand, and one a minute after. If I can get that stupid videocapture program running again I will also make sure it is on when I enchant and when I upgrade.

    And if all this turns out to be just believable trolls who are laughing at my gullibility--well, whatever.

    Come on, people. We have some very smart and dedicated players here. Surely we can find something better than "He said / she said" level proof?

    That's not 100% Chance. That's 100% XP, which only gives +30% or +15% chance.
  • I geared few characters and never failed on 100% success rate

    Like I said, a screenshot would be nice, for people curious about this rumor and to forward to Support. I believe it's possible, but this is all still second-hand info relayed through friends and guild-members.

    I'm seeing a bunch of claims with absolutely no evidence. I have a full stormcry main, but I have twistshard alts that I have been gradually gearing up. Every time I've had a 100% chance to succeed I've succeeded, so if you've seen otherwise, you need to record or screenshot it, otherwise your claims don't hold water.

    Here, I'll even do this. I have a twistshard alt that has a crap ton of item exp. I'll get a bunch of gold talents and I'll upgrade it to see if I get any failures since it should hold 100% chance for most of it. I'll even record it.
  • I have failed on frostmetal when i had it up to 100% (failed multiple times to get it to 100%), twice in a row actually, but the system was new, barely a few days old so i never thought twice about it, my brother did see it though, so yes it is possible. But since then, i have not managed to fail (at a 100%) most my gear goes when its at 63% or 69%, worst is stormcry ofc.
  • Okay. I just ran a test myself. I recorded the results and I'll post it up here when I get it uploaded.

    fyi, I found in my limited testing that 100% success chance equaled no failures from getting a twistshard +2 to a frostmetal.

    I think people in this thread are confusing 100% item XP for 100% success rate?

    I've had no problems enchanting Twistshard with 100% success rate. Even my Stormcry hasn't gone over 40% success chance to enchant, you'd have to have some really, really bad luck to fail at 100% success rate.

    Yeah that's the impression I'm getting, people not quite understanding that maxed item experience doesn't guarantee success after a certain point. My test was mainly for the rumors of people failing on 100% twistshard
  • Has anyone ever got the enchantment window just stop working - neither succeeding nor failing, over and over again?
