    Conversion was sold in the cash shop?

    if this was implemented in the game I'm pretty sure it would destroy end game equipment, can someone run numbers on if a r5 hunter/huntress combo would do more damage than a r10 shortbow?

    Gobine was in test, it allowed one to level up 100%, didn't matter if it was blue or red.

    Gobine was removed after test, while conversion was sold as a cash shop item.
    Gobine huh...is that the reason why people keep spreading the rumor around that in KR they released a cash shop item that protected your item from step 5 to 6? Might not correlate since this is a 100% success item vs a protection but still.

    It wouldn't really destroy the end-game equipment in the long-run. It would merely set a new standard of "Step 10 or go home" and people would drop the cash to get it. At least, some would.

    It wouldn't be good for the game community though; this is the real harm that would come. It would serve to sever the gaming community even more with economically challenged players stopping at step 5 and economically privileged players obtaining step 10. Damage is already gapped economically by way of rebirths (even though you dont pay for them now, it wasnt long ago that you did), reforges, enchants (to a degree), combo cards, and more I don't feel like getting into. Each gap gets nexon money in the short run but in the long run it probably drives away a lot of lower tier players.

    Not to mention that it would mean even less weapons in the market because more and more are being destroyed during special upgrades.

    Rare/unique weapons would be less valuable. Why spend the extra time/effort to pick up a Bhafel Hunter and stop at step 5/6 when you could just spam longbows to step 10?

    At the same time, crazy-RNG-minded people will be spamming expensive weapons to try and get step 10, like they do right now with step 6. All those broken celtics. . .

    I'd say they would be more or at least equally valuable to now lol People would be blowing them up trying to create the ultimate monstrosity. At least that would be the case for, say, Bhafels. I'm not sure about other weapons since not many can get something as epic as the huntress to boost your power.
