Greetings Mercenaries,

As mentioned on yesterday's 'Weekly Maintenance: October 30th' post on our official Vindictus website, the 'Destruction Safeguard Rune' will be removed from the Shop and will no longer be available for purchase after today's maintenance due to enhancement revamps and legal issues.

To give a proper farewell to a Rune we dearly loved, we've organized a small event for you as below:

- Items that were previously purchased may be used normally in-game regardless of the sales end date.
- In addition to the Cash Shop, the sale of the 'Destruction Safeguard Rune' will also be removed from the 'Seal of Bravery Shop' and the 'Monthly Mission Ticket Exchange Shop.'

Event: Farewell Destruction Safeguard Rune

Starting Date: October 30th (After Maintenance)
Ending Date: November 6th (Before Maintenance)

Event Details:
- Enhancement level decrease is prevented when attempting to enhance +10 to +14 items during the event period.

Event Target Items:
- Gear Protection Rune (+10 to +12)
- Destruction Safeguard Rune
- Destruction Safeguard Rune (Gift)
- Destruction Safeguard Rune (Gift, Binding)
- Unstable Destruction Safeguard Rune (Binding)

- This event applies to all 'Event Target Items,' regardless of how the item was acquired.
- When attempting to use the 'Event Target Items' after the event period, the enhancement level decrease will be applied as it was before.
+ As this event only applies to minimum +10 / maximum +14 items, items +15 or higher will not be applied when attempting to enhance.

When Using the 'Destruction Safeguard Rune:'
- As enhancement systems have been revamped, enhancement failures of the 'Destruction Safeguard Rune' after the event period will be applied as below:
+ When failure to enhance using the 'Destruction Safeguard Rune,' enhancement level decrease will be applied as before and the percentage of the enhancement bonus will be applied at the decreased enhancement level rate.

Once again, thank you for understanding and continuous support.

- The Vindictus Team -

    Means that it also works when trying to enhance a +14 to +15. Confirmed myself by failing a bunch of times :D :'(

    Anyways, when trying to upgrade you should get a popup that says "If enhancement fails, .... However, because of the Farewell Destruction Safeguard Rune Event effect, the item's enhancement level will not decrease."
    If you see ^ you should be safe.
