Dragon Orb Ocean
Dragon Orb Ocean is a powerful item that only the most hardcore players and merchants need consider-- This limited-time, ultra rare orb has a 100% chance to successfully increase an item's refinement level by 1, with the maximum refinement level at +10! This means that it can be used once before being consumed, and can refine an item from +2 to +3, from +7 to +8, or from +9 to +10 (remember, it can only be used for one of these)!
Dragon Orb Mirage
The second most powerful dragon orb in the game. This limited-time, ultra rare orb has a 100% chance to successfully increase an item's refinement level by 1, with the maximum refinement level at +11! This means that it can be used once before being consumed, and can refine an item from +2 to +3, from +7 to +8, or from +10 to +11 (remember, it can only be used for one of these)!
Dragon Orb Flame
The most valuable dragon orb of them all. This beauty will guarantee a refinement level up no matter the current refinement level of the item. If you're looking for that last bump up on your best gear to be a guarantee, then this is the item to have! Remember, like all other orbs, it will be consumed on use, no matter the refinement level. Choose wisely what you want to refine.
Dragon Orb + Refinement Info:
Dragon Orbs are a one-time-use consumable item used in the Refinement process to improve your armor and weapons. Refining normally has a chance of failure, with that chance increasing for each level of refinement that you are attempting; for example, refining an item to +3 has a higher chance of failure than refining it to +2. By using the appropriate level Dragon orb, however, you will reduce the chance of failure to 0%!
To figure out the appropriate Dragon Orb for you, check its "star level". A Dragon Orb's "star level" ranges from one to twelve, and the star level corresponds to the refinement level that it will guarantee you a 0% failure rate for.
So for example, a 4-Star Dragon Orb will allow you to take an item that is already at +3 refinement level and boost it to +4 refinement level, 100% guaranteed. A 3-Star Dragon Orb would allow you to take a +2 item and boost it to +3 guaranteed, and so on.
Refining items increases their power substantially, so you'll definitely want to look into doing it, especially at higher levels of play.
For a look at the difference in power that you can expect to see, here are some examples of refined vs. unrefined gear. Note the physical attack value at each level. Please keep in mind that, in general, higher grade gear will experience a larger bonus effect from refinement than lower grade gear.
Refined to +5
Refined to +10
