Upgrading & Disassembling
- In powder form, they are used to upgrade equipments from level 25 to 39.
- In crystal form, they are used to upgrade equipments between level 40 to 49.
- In piece form, they are used to improve level 50 equipments.
Anyway, what I do know is that from there onwards, the Ernium and Oridecon in powder form can be made into crystal and piece form through the help of a high profession level Alchemist. And as far as it goes, you would need 4 powders to make 1 crystal and 4 crystals to make 1 piece.
As for Karniums, I have basically only encountered it once during the CNY event where we traded in special drops for red packets and in turn, those red packets could be exchanged for a Karnium if you had enough of them. Apart from that, I heard that there is a tiny chance of obtaining Karniums at random from opening "Munil's Treasure Chest" (not sure if its the yellow one or beige or both as they're both worded the same in their descriptions). However, these are sold in the RO2 Cash Shop and apparently the word is that someone opened 50 of these boxes only to get 4 Karniums.
(By the way, do I hear someone shouting..."All this information is fine, but how the heck do we disassemble an equipment!?")
Upon purchasing the appropriate stone, just open your inventory and right click on the stone before selecting the desired equipment to break down. Its as simple as that.
Since we just touched upon a risky subject of upgrading equips, I reckon that I might as well introduce to you an equally dangerous one, combining your cards. But before I go into the actual combining procedure, I wish to first touch upon card ranks.
There isn't much information with regards to this since the game is still relatively new (OBT released on Jan 2013). So anything below is a mixture of hearsay, facts and guessing. Be Warned.
If the five cards you've placed were Silver ranked cards, then I guess there is a chance that it would still follow the same system as when combining Normal ranked cards, that is that, one of your Silver ranked cards would turn into a "Silver+" at random or you would gain a random Gold ranked (Yellow) card.
Naturally this is all just guessing of course, since due to their rarity and difficulty to obtain (need five), blue cards aren't quite really used in this sort of combining test yet. Furthermore, I still haven't observed any traces of "Silver+" or "Gold" cards being sold on auction either so do take all these with a pinch of salt.
However, the funny thing is that in the item's in-game description it actually states something else instead. And from what I feel after reading the description, I tend to get the idea that this "Card Designated Synthesis" thingy actually serves to just "protect" your chosen card such that it doesn't disappear if the card synthesis fails so do take note of this possibility if you ever do decide to use one of them.
That is all. Good Luck on your card synthesis.
