I did a little bit of forging to show you what kind of items you can expect to craft.
I’m on Ascension Level 130 and started with the following Epic 1-Star items:
A regular cape with some Cooldown Bonus:
I fully upgraded it to 5-Star Titan, superforging it by exclusively destroying 4-Star items (or 5-Star items when forging it on Titan level):
This piece of body armor was cursed and has quite high Physical Resistance for a green item:
Look at the Physical Resistance gained by superforging:
And here some nice bracers which were also cursed, featuring Demolition:
The Demolition Chance of this item would actually only be around 33k had I not superforged it:
So I decided to refine my body armor by destroying the Demolition bracers:
As you can see, all the numbers are now quite low since the item is reduced to 1-Star Epic quality. But if you compare those values to the item when it was still Bronze you will notice that the Health has increased and the Physical Resistance went up to 19k before it was normalized. Adding a new perk caused both the Physical Resistance and the Demolition to get normalized to 50% of their strength.
