Normally, you repair items and weapons by use of the anvil, which is located throughout the vast lands of Andalucia. However, in Patch 1.5-CB, we’ve added scraps and merchants. Scraps are essentially a portable method of repairing any armor or weapon. These can be acquired by salvaging your unwanted gear and handing it to the merchant, who in turn will convert the given items to scraps, seen here:
To use scraps, de-equip the desired armor or weapon piece and place it in your inventory.
Then, place the scrap on top of the piece, and it will repair the piece according to it’s designated durability percentage.
When you give scraps back to the merchant, you can get essentially break them down or exchange the scraps for more of a lower tier scrap. For example;
I hand the merchant OneTier 5 Scrap, in turn I will receive ThreeTier 4 Scraps, and so forth.
Here is an example of the exchange of one Tier 5 scrap into the 3 T4 scraps, as so:
With one Tier 5 scrap, I can essentially break it down as follows:
3 T4 -> 6 T3 -> 18 T2 -> 18 T1
You can not go from T1 scraps to T5, unfortunately.
Orbs of Alteration
Orbs of Alteration are unique, rare items that can be acquired from Merchants by exchanging or trading large quantities of scraps or under the rare circumstance, high leveled loot chests. These orbs essentially have useful effects that when used on a weapon or armor piece, they have the following:
Orbs of Alteration randomize the attributes of the equipment they are used upon. However, there are certain values that are kept the same when the orb is used on that particular piece of equipment.
These are, but are not limited to:
- REGEN Attributes
Any and all other attributes can be removed or altered using this orb.
In order to obtain one of these Orbs from a merchant, you have to have the following scraps or exchange ratios:
You may no longer use tier 1 or tier 2 scraps to convert to an orb.
1 ORB = 110 Tier 3 Scraps
1 ORB = 60 Tier 4 Scraps
1 ORB = 20 Tier 5 Scraps
