Devil Rune Ore

The Last Chaos Wiki has the following entry for Devil Rune Ore:

Devil Rune Ores are special stones that can be used up to +25. The chance of a successful improvement up to + 5 is 100%.

Possible outcome:
Success (+1)
Success (+2)
Success (+3)
Failure (object is destroyed)


My question is - if I use Devil Rune Ore on an item that is currently +4, am I still in the "safe" zone, with a chance of getting +5 +6 or +7

or will it only give an upgrade to +5

or is there a possibility of failure because of the +6 and +7...


I like the idea of possibly jumping to +7 but don't want to risk failure..

if u try to upgrade an item ( 145+) and its currently at +4, when u try to u drag dro ( pro) over it - u wont see the windows where will ask u to use a rop - which means its safe to upgrade it. When the item is already at +5 - ull get the window pop up and ask u to drag the rop then its not safe anymore and ur item might break. When u upgrade an item from +4 and use dro - its possible to get +2, or +3 as bonus.
Personally when I upgrade something I use pro till +4 and then start with dro.

Instead of risking a fail or break, u could use 5 puri to safe +5, 5 lucky to +10 and then 5 chaos runes for +15. No reason to risk breaking the item using devil at +4 when u can have safe +10 with puri and lucky ores since they go for cheap.

You can safely without risk use a Devil Rune ore on a +4 item, as long as its under +5 its always a guaranteed success.

The wiki however is not complete I see:

DEvil rune ore has the following options:
+3 / +2 / +1 / 0 / -1 / -2 / -3

Given the negatives are extremely rare but they do exist.

pretty sure you can only use runes on item 146+ last time i checked 1 - 145 was smelting stones.
anyhow
i just use lucky, chaos and fine runes on everything, they have pretty much made purified and Devil rune ore worthless. some may disagree but i dont take chances. i would rather pay a little extra for a 100% thats just me though :thumbsup:

Thanks to everyone for their comments - given I have quite a few purified and devil rune ore from drops, it sounds as though Angels's route of PRO to +4 followed by one DRO may save me one or two Lucky Runes...
