Currently there’s a nasty bug related to the refining system that you should know about. This bug is confirmed for PC, we’re not sure about consoles. As posted by user reg1981 on our message board, sometimes hitting “update” in the refining UI does nothing. And when you click it again, it’ll consume twice the refining points.
Example: Rank 7 enchant needs 5k RP to upgrade. I put my bar to full showing 5k used and click upgrade. Nothing happens. Click upgrade again and it consumes 10k RP and fills my new R8 enchant with 5k towards the next level.
This is already annoying, but at least no refining points get lost. This changes however if you’re trying to upgrade an enchantment or artifact gear to its maximum rank. In that case, no RPs can be transferred to the next level and are effectively lost.
A workaround to this issue is making the final upgrade a two-step process. First you refine the item to 90% and then finalize it with the remaining 10%. That way you only risk losing a small portion of the RP and not the full amount. However, the safest way to avoid the bug is to not refine at all. The devs are aware and working on it. So here’s hoping that it will be fixed soon, because nobody likes losing refining points.
