I know I’ve seen a post before about people switching from hitter to tank set or tank to hitter and they lose Forbes on the gear. Does this apply to promotes as well? Example, if you switch from hitter to tank and your armor has (10/10) promotes already, will you lose all 10 promotes and have to do then again or they will switch over? I look at NPC in Jamestown and it doesn’t appear they transfer but wanted to see if anyone has experience and can confirm it will or will not transfer.
As far as I'm aware, forges will stay, promotes will be lost.
I can confirm this for Farrel to Harris change.
When I changed my Farrel Ring to Harris Ring, my forges were not lost, they successfully transferred over to Harris..
Check out various tools for VCO at The Pirate's Cove:
Especially the farrel items you need to change them to attack or def before you starts promotes, Since the cost of upgrading them to 165 is huge (46 serpent stones i think) so better change them and then do the promotes
