Armour skills and decorations

#1Razorwolf79Posted 3/3/2013 3:59:10 AM
Hey everyone,

This is actually a question about Tri, but since this board has way more use ill ask it here and you will probably know the answer anyway ;).

So I started up a new save file with tri to get through the village quests and pass some time waiting for MF3U to come out (just 3 more weeks, huzzah). But the other day I wanted to gem my gear for attack. The gear already had +9 attack to it so I thought id just add some decorations for a nice bonus. But it didnt give me the skill...
I noticed that the armour gave +1. Is it impossible to then also get +1 from decorations?

I hope you understand what I mean.

Your gear doesn't have +9 attack. It actually has nothing. You can get + one attack after reaching 10. So your gear is a bit short to actually giving you the buff. If you want +2 attack, you might need around 15 to unlock the second upgrade. So you'll need a decoration with +6 added to your armor of + 9 in order to unlock the second tier for + 2 attack.

I hope that makes sense.

yeah it does but its not what I ment :). I use the rhenoplasta armour (im at barroth and the mud resist helps) wich gives 9 points towards attack. I filled it with 6 attack decorations wich should give me 15 points towards attack, but for some reason I dont get that. Is that because if a piece of armour gives 1 point towards attack adding a attack jewel doesnt work?

Make sure none of your armor pieces have a -1 to attack or anything.

Other than that I don't know why you wouldn't be getting the bonus.

Are you sure you're not using some other jewel?

It takes 10 points in a skill to actually have that skill.

Remove all the decorations. How many points do you have? My guess is your math is wrong and you're not supposed to be at 15

The only thing I can think of is that you have a talisman that gives +9 to some skill and that you're confusing that skill with attack.
