    Yes, your eyes ain't fooling you. 167 million glyphs to upgrade a 2h from 45 to 50. Just from 45 to 46 it costs 14.7 million glyphs! I hereby ask the mods if they could give us one of the devs logical explanations on how this can be. Cause I know it has been extreme to upgrade items only with % enchantments, but everytime looking at this, trying to figure it out, I get completely mind-f*****. Lol :)
    - What is the secret?

    DR, I posted this as an obvious bug in Rick's feedback thread. He said on Friday he would check into it today. I'm hoping his push will prioritize the devs/bug team and get this fixed.

    Question would be, if you dropped 167 Mil glyphs into it then they changed the requirements, what would happen to the excess GOP?

    Now that's a good question. Would it be lost? Would it somehow get transfered to our glyph tab or would you get it in andermants?

    - If the 3rd is the case, then I better get working. Haha. :D

    I'm hoping the announced fix includes the problem in this thread but that looks like a different bug. It shows you what the upgrade will be for stats in the upgrade window, but then it doesn't come out that way once you hit the upgrade button. Bait and switch bug

    Yes you are right ... the example is for different bug.
    But in the beginning there is this piece of text
    But like you said we can just hoping and guessing.

    There was a response in another thread. They're looking into it. Take a screen shot of the item and send it to support.

    Yea, and this has been getting complained about since almost immediately after R139 came out... This is nothing new, and BP taking forever to fix something that isn't hurting their bottom line but pisses players off to no end... Well, that's nothing new either.

    Karabossa bow from lvl46 to:
    lvl47 - 0,93mil
    lvl48 - 2,78mil
    lvl49 - 6,46mil
    lvl50 - 21,16mil ????????

    Due to the stats that have values in % it would be nice if there is item in the right corner of that window with complete stats that item will have afer upgrade.

    I think I see a pattern that might help explain this issue. I tested a lot up upgrades and for that weapons vary, based on the ending result of the DPS. There are other items that have high upgrades also and they go down after the first big upgrade.

    What it seems to me some items are a certain level and the level required to equip is higher. Upon upgrade you are forced to bring the lower level item to that higher level.

    Item Extraordinary Knights Belt Level 42. Belt has Armor Stats of a level 40 Belt. Upgrade to 43 is identical to upgrading a Level 40 Extraordinaire Belt to 43. The 43 to 44 price is the same for both.

    This fix this seems simple enough Bring all items to the level Equipped. There might be problems here. There is event gear that is scaled this might hinder this gear. And certain gear is force level in Map 1 and Map 2 from 40.

    Yesterday I have something like that... I was playing with my friend trying to find decent cultist bow for my lower lvl character and I get one EO cultist bow lvl 23 that have 14,5% speed and 22,3% increased dmg. Upgrade to lvl 24 state 200.907 GoP.

    Hour later my friend get EO cultist bow but lvl 25. It have 40,1% increased dmg and +9 dmg... upgrade to lvl 26 is little more then 23.000 :(((((

    Wondering then IF they ever "fix" the glyph costs and they are reduced to manageable amounts, will we get glyph refunds for gear we already spent hundreds of thousands of glyphs on upgrading???
    Tell me what YOU think will happen lol.

    *Nasowas, died 2015 from holding his breath waiting for a glyph fix in DSO, may God have mercy on his soul the fool....*

    Doubt it because generally their fixes do not apply retroactively. For example, the low level legendaries... when they finally fixed and balanced those, people still had the ones that existed before the change.

    Ya, its probable the GOP would stay in the item waiting for it to be melted where you would get them back. Thats why I'm waiting for a fix and until then the bow i have is a gem holder.
