Since this solution was written, some major changes to item leveling have been introduced. Not only does it now take much longer to level up an item, but there are multiple ways to level it up and new strategies for maximizing the potential of your material items. Even some buff names have changed. I am looking into the changes and anticipate updating this guide to reflect them. In the meantime, following this guide is still suggested if you are interested in earning this achievement as quick as possible, and some consideration should be given to its age.

Since Title Update 4, the max level of an item has been increased to level 15. You can level up items past level 10 by combining them with another item of the same name; or, since October 2013, you can alternatively use Statue ("Super Material") items obtained from Happy Cards. You can upgrade your items in Main Menu -> Play -> Dress Up & Power-Up -> Item Level-Up. You'll need to level up any item to level 15 to unlock this achievement.

If you just want this achievement quickly, you can spend some money at the Happy Spinner on SHIELDS (yellow). Save up some stars then keep spinning until you have 6 shields all with the same name. You can level anything up to level 10, then you'll need 5 more -- one to combine it with for each level from 11 to 15. The reason for doing shields is because there's less of them than any other item (increases your odds of getting 6 with the same name), and they cost less to upgrade than any other item (saves you some hard-earned Happy Stars). As an added perk, a level 15 "weight 1" shield is actually pretty useful for a Cleric until rank 50 or so.

A 'level 1, weight 1' shield in the Item Level-Up:

The message you'll receive if you are lacking an item required to upgrade past level 10:

A level 14 Brave Suit being leveled up to 15:

Alternatively, and in my opinion a better idea, play Special Match or Special Challenge until you have 6 of one item (such as the Brave Suit seen above). These items may cost more Happy Stars to get to level 15, but many of them will actually be useful in league matches (rank 20+).


Item Leveling Tips and Tricks
So you know how to get the achievement, but how do you get the absolute most out of your items?

- Super Material (introduced October 2013) Lv1-3 will increase the MAX available level of an item 1-3 levels (depending on what level Super Material you have) up to the maximum level of 15. If you have these, use them wisely!

- When choosing materials, make sure you don't use items that have decent white buffs on them (Lv2, Lv3 or Skill+ buffs), you may need these buffs later even if they seem useless now.

- Don't sell or buy material! Selling items is a waste of material, and spending stars on the spinner for material is a waste of Happy Stars. Just keep playing Quick Match and working on other achievements to earn the items and stars -- believe me, by the time you finish your 60 quests you'll have plenty.

- 'Material Points Up' buffs have no effect in battle. Instead, they add material points to the material point value of the item they're on. See the Brave Suit (third) screenshot above -- you'll notice I've added 'Material Points Up Lv3' to the Brave Suit I'm using to get to level 15 because the material point requirement is so high. If you have items with this buff on them and no other usable buffs, they are best suited for use as material.

- Base attack/defense values of gear is not static! If you have a few items of the same type and they're all at level 1, compare the attack or defense values of the items to find the strongest one and level up this item instead of the others. With Premium or better items, if you have one at level 10 and you earn a second one, it may be prudent to level the second up to 9 to see if it does more damage at level 10 than your current version. If you're going to combine Super Premium items from Happy Cards, level them all up to level 9 to see which is stronger before combining them!

- If you use a Super Premium as material, level it up to 2 or 3 first for the added material point value -- this same suggestion applies to Super Material statues as well.

- Purple buffs have negative (bad) effects. Oftentimes it's best to scrap gear with purple buffs but be aware that the stronger versions of weapons and armor frequently come with purple buffs, and it's occasionally worth removing them.
