Unused Upgrade Slot[edit]

Do the back items actually come with an upgrade slot? When you mouseover these items in the vendor's interface, there's no indication of such a slot at all.

I've just checked and this Exotic item doesn't come with an upgrade slot.

Doesn't look like its a bug, you need to ascended to get the slot.

They probably did that since adding an upgrade would make it unable to be promoted in the mystic forge. User Kirbman signature.png talk 22:18, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
Does adding an upgrade component to an item generally prevent it from being used in the mystic forge? I don't see anything on the Mystic Forge page about that, and it seems quite arbitrary if true. The ascended version of prototype fractal capacitors have an infusion slot despite having two higher upgrades in the forge... --Felbryn 22:39, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

soulbound before upgrade[edit]

shouldnt it be noted that you have to equip it (make it soulbound) before you can upgrade it in the MF? (KILL MementoMori 22:34, 14 April 2013 (UTC)_

ill do this, as ive had it confirmed to me by someone else as well.Spark GOLD "talk" 00:13, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Effects of Transmutation[edit]

What happens when you transmute it to get another back item's stats? Can you still upgrade it? --RoyHarmon (talk) 12:02, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Recipe Error[edit]

Both the recipes for the Prototype Fractal Capacitor seem to be in error in that they list the resulting item as an ingredient. That self-reference seems to me to be unlikely unless I am mistaken. The preceding unsigned comment was added by ‎ (talkcontribs).

It is an ingredient in creating Prototype Fractal Capacitor (Ascended), though? An Ascended Capacitor requires this, the default version, to create it, or am I missing something in your question? —Ventriloquist 21:40, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Infusion Slot Type[edit]

Would help some people if the infusion slot type were listed next to the name on the 2 recipes as it is on the Prototype Fractal Capacitor (Ascended) page.

Price of this item[edit]

I think a template is messing things up, I get a price of 1.12E-5 Gold coin 2 Copper coin for this item. On the vendor page everything is fine. --Cloned (talk) 08:15, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

I see "BUY-4373 Mistlock Observatory 1,350 Fractal Relic.png + 21 Silver coin 12 Copper coin" Maybe it was a cache thing? -Darqam 16:15, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
No Darqam, it's a mediawiki language thing. See this (uselang=de). We recently encountered a similar problem with the Finish language (link). I'll look into this problem, thanks Cloned. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:50, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
Lol, the SMW manual website doesn't currently support SMW. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:07, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
I've come up with a nasty fix - stripping the full stops out of the currency result. SMW really should provide a way to format record outputs from queries. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:28, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/03/04[edit]

The Recipe is wrong. You need 250 philosopher's stone instead of 240

Are you sure? Some sources I found show 240. —Ventriloquist 22:58, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
It is 240, also the other recipe with Mystic Crystal doesn't work JasonLucas.4981 (talk) 17:51, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
