Cron Stones can be bought from a Blacksmith for 2 million silver each, and are used to prevent an item from losing an enhancement level if the enhancement fails. More general information about Enhancing can be found in our Enhancing Guide. If you are unsure whether to use crons or not and what failstacks are best for certain gear, you can also check our Failstack recommendations.
Cron Stones can usually be used on:
- Weapons that are DUO (+17) or higher
- Armor that is DUO (+17) or higher
- Accessories that are PRI (+1) or higher
The amount of Cron Stones required is a fixed amount depending on the item and enhancement level. Regardless of whether the enhancement succeeds or fails, the Cron Stones used will be removed. You also do not gain failstacks if you fail while using cron stones.
Cron Stones can also be used on accessories to stop them from breaking if unsuccessful. However, its enhancement can either remain the same OR decrease if you are unsuccessful.
- Accessories have a 40% chance of degrading if you use cron stones.
Melting Costumes for Cron Stones
Cron stones can also be obtained by “melting” pearl store costumes.
This is the most cost-effective way of gaining cron stones, since players can buy a full costume set from the central market.
- 840 million silver per costume, 621 crons per costume = 1,352,657 silver per Cron Stone
- Buying Cron Stones directly from a Black Smith = 2,000,000 silver per Cron Stone
To “melt” a costume, you must go to a Blacksmith, click the extract option, and select “Outfit Extraction”. You can choose whether you would like to receive Valks’ Cry or Cron Stones. Doing this will destroy the costume piece.
|Pearl Costume Piece||Amount of Cron Stones|
|Premium Costume Box||621|
|Classic Costume Box||501|
