Equipment material can be changed by reading a scroll of inferior/change/superior material, but I've noticed that some materials are more likely to happen from others, regardless of the types of scrolls used. And I also wondered about the difference between blessed scrolls of change vs unblessed superior scroll.
I've decided to run a test (Elona 1.52fix) to verify the behavior of material rerolling. The following results show the materials applied on a cloak by reading 250 scrolls of blessed change material, superior material and blessed superior material (each).
|Material||B. Change #||Superior #||B. Superior #|
Materials below Raw = normal quality, above Raw = superior quality
- Blessed change material scrolls have an higher chance of getting a superior material compared to unblessed ones (almost 50%) and still below superiors (80%), but also nullifies any chance of getting inferior materials (except raw, which happens with every type of scroll);
- Equipment is more likely to get specific materials (like dawn cloth and griffon scale) regardless of quality of scrolls;
- Scrolls of higher quality have less applicable materials. This includes dragon scale (which is a good compromise between ether and adamantium + hit bonus and extra enchantments) being unobtainable if a blessed scroll of superior material is used.
Also, it seems that adamantium isn't applicable on cloaks. After many extra tries, I can say that Mithrill and Platinum can also be obtained by reading a superior scroll, but not adamantium. Maybe this material isn't available for some items? Or if it's possible, then the probability is way too low. Something like 1/1000.
Other equips behave in the same way, more or less. Some armors behave like this cloak, while others have an higher chance of getting diamond/titanium instead.
Player's luck or other stats do NOT influence the outcome.
I'll run few more tests before editing the equipment page tomorrow.
