Wondering how to get [Normal +] or +1 cards? Want to combine your current cards into something exciting and new? Well, you've come to the right place!
Cards have a special border based on their rarity. These borders are important, because when combining cards you can only use other cards of the same level. These borders will also tell you which synthesis materials you need to use.
Card Combination & Reinforcement Materials
Card Enhanced Stone: Stone used for card reinforcement (+1, etc.) Level 50 Normal Card:10 Stones. Rare Card: 15 Stones. Epic Card: 20 Stones.

You can combine cards to strengthen their stats or create new cards. To start, visit the Card Master and click on the Combine button.
Combining cards randomly. To begin combining cards randomly, place 5 different cards of the same level in the item combination window. . Once the circle of cards is complete, add the synthesis stone for the level of card you're using. For example, when combining normal cards, the result of the combination will be a [Normal +] version of one of the cards you have used, or a new normal card.
You will need: 5 Different Cards + Card Synthesis Stone. The quality of the Card Synthesis Stone must match your card level.
Combining cards with Card Designated Synthesis. When card designated synthesis is used, you can select one of the five cards to focus the combination on. For example, when combining normal cards, you can select one of the cards to become [Normal +] or a new, higher level card if the option is shown. When you select the card that you would like to [Normal +] it is highlighted with a golden border.
You will need: 5 Different Cards + Card Synthesis Stone + Card Designated Synthesis. The quality of the Card Synthesis Stone must match your card level.
Here is an example of combining normal cards using Card Designated Synthesis. As you can see, two card options are shown in the center window. A [Normal +] version of the card selected, and a rare quality card. The successful result is random. Make sure you check to see what the [Normal/Rare/Epic +] version of the card is. On some cards, stats are increased overall. On others, some stats are reduced and new, different stats are added.
Note: [Normal +], [Rare +], and [Epic +] cards can not be used in card combination. Additionally, if you combine a card that is +'ed through reinforcement, it will not retain its reinforcement level when it is combined. This means you will want to combine your card to a [Normal +]/[Rare +]/[Epic +] before you begin reinforcing it.
You can reinforce any card you own. It doesn't have to be [Normal +]/[Rare +]/[Epic +], but please remember that once you + a card with reinforcement, you will not be able to make it a [Normal +]/[Rare +]/[Epic +] without losing that reinforcement level. You can begin reinforcing cards by clicking on the Card Master's Reinforcement button.
Zeny Cost. Card reinforcement has a different zeny cost based on the level of the card and the reinforcement level. Each reinforcement attempt costs zeny, and after each successful reinforcement level the cost will increase.
Card Enhanced Stones. The number of Card Enhanced Stones needed will depend on the level and rarity of the card. Level 50 Normal Card:10 Stones. Rare Card: 15 Stones. Epic Card: 20 Stones.
Card Coating Paper. Card reinforcement can fail. Card Coating Paper protects the card from being destroyed, and will occasionally prevent the card from downgrading when it fails. Typically, if the card reinforcement fails your card will lose all reinforcement.
Reinforcing Process. To begin reinforcing your card, click the Reinforcement button at the Card Master. Drag the card that you want to reinforce into the top slot. Card Reinforcement Stones are placed in the bottom left slot. Card Coating Paper is placed in the bottom right slot. Press Start Reinforcement to begin.
Here is an example reinforcement on a level 50 [Epic +] card. A message is displayed when the reinforcement is successful. Failure messages are only shown as system notifications.
Homework. You can use an item database to research what each reinforcement level will provide your card and its success rate. The following is an example for the Osiris Card [Epic +]:
