Artisan Upgrade

From Mabinogi World Wiki


Artisan Upgrades are upgrades that can be used on the final upgrade slot on certain item. Adds player stats from a predetermined range. It is possible to receive a boost from anywhere in the range. Sometimes a stat boost or deduction may not be applied at all.


  • Only the final normal upgrade can be the artisan upgrade for any piece of equipment.
    • Each Artisan Upgrade requires 100 proficiency.
      • The exception to this is the Mace of Mercy, which requires 30 instead.
    • The Artisan Upgrade will cost between 20,000 and 80,000 Gold.
  • The upgrade boosts or decreases specific player stats. See below for specifics.
  • Receiving multiple stat upgrades is not guaranteed, although it is possible.
  • Artisan Upgrade will not always give all the stats listed.
    • It should be noted that the "minimum" stat gain is the lowest possible amount the player would receive if the stat is applied. For example, a Glory Sword will never get less than 22 Luck, but only if the Luck is actually applied to the weapon in the first place.
      • In other words, it is possible for a stat to not be applied when going through an Artisan Upgrade.
    • This means the minimum roll for an artisan upgrade is never 0.
    • Applied stats will appear on the item under [Artisan Upgrade].
  • Artisan upgrades can stack if you have two weapons. For example, if you are dual wielding two +60 Strength weapons, you will receive 120 Strength, increasing damage for BOTH weapons.
  • You can remove an Artisan Upgrade by using an Artisan Upgrade Removal Kit available through the in-game Item Shop.
    • The Artisan Upgrade Removal Kit will restore the item to 100 proficiency and open the last upgrade slot, but the gold spent will not be returned.
  • It is not necessary to use Artisan Upgrades in order to qualify for Special Upgrades.
