Did a rough estimate of the total amount Damascus steel needed and cost assuming you are stuck with a +10 Astera Weapon and want to hit +15

+ 10 = 12 Steel per attempt x 4 (max attempts to 100%) = 48 Steel
+ 11 = 22 Steel per attempt x 6 (max attempts to 100%) = 132 Steel
+12 = 34 Steel per attempt x 8 (max attempts to 100%) = 272 Steel
+13 = 46 Steel per attempt x 10 (max attempts to 100%) = 460 Steel
+14 = 60 Steel per attempt x 12 (max attempts to 100%) = 720 Steel

Total Steel = 1,632 Steel

1,632 Steel x 4m (approx cost of steel) = 6,528,000,000

This is JUST for the cost of steel. The cost doesn't cover the cost of Astera Weapon Essence and the x2 Ores needed along with the real life $ cost of runes for every attempt.

Will update thread with further findings.

Cost of Enhance Runes (assuming you don't have any lying around)

Total needed = 40 Enhance Runes x $4 (approx cost per rune) = $160

    That is assuming the worst possible rng which is very unlikely. The expected amount is closer to 500 steels and total cost about 2.5b with everything included.

    Course the instant you think you will be lucky, you wont ;-) But yeah I "only" had to use ~800 steel for my +15.

    I was able to reforge using unstable enhancement rune from the bravery shop, think it was either 80-90 seals, don't remember

    As someone who played since beta never breaking past +11 until the bravery shop released Guaranteed +12 rune
    I'm just thankful that I can guarantee success with work...
