Weapon Enhancing

ShopLogoLab.png

Enhancing a weapon can be done through the Item Lab in the Shopping plaza. Every weapon you use to enhance another weapon will cost you one grinder. For weapons 13+ you will need one Lambda Grinder per weapon used.
Enhancement will stop at certain points to make the player unlock the Potential / level up the Potential before enhancing further. This occurs at +10, +20, and +30.
Enhancing Weapons will not risk any failure.
Every enhancement level correlates to a 1% increase to the Weapon's base stats up to +35% at +35 (excluding Augments).

Enhancement Caps

Enhancement Cap is the maximum level that a weapon can be enhanced to. It is displayed on tab 2 of a weapon's Item Details window, e.g. "Enh Lv. /0 (30 Maximum)", with 30 being the Enhancement Cap.

For all weapons the maximum Enhancement Cap is 35.

All weapons up to 12 are generated with an Enhancement Cap of 30 from all sources. 13 and higher weapons start with an Enhancement Cap of 35 if they are from enemies and boss loot, or 30 if they are obtained from an exchange counter or Collection Folder.

The Enhancement Cap of a weapon can be raised by enhancing it with another copy of the same weapon: If the fodder weapon has an Enhancement Cap of 30, the Enhancement Cap of the weapon being enhanced will increase by 1. If the fodder weapon has an Enhancement Cap above 30, the number of levels above 30 will also be added to the weapon being enhanced.

For example, enhancing a Sigma Turin (Enhancement Cap 31) using a Sigma Turin (Enhancement Cap 32) will raise the Enhancement Cap of the enhanced Sigma Turin to 34.

Some of the weapon upgrade exchanges available from Zig retain the Enhancement Cap of the weapon being upgraded.

Augment Factors

When a Weapon is enhanced to +35, the Augment Factor will become available to use when Affixing Augments. Affixing these Augments will guarantee a 100% success rate, but will still follow normal penalties when adding an additional Augment.
Different Augment Factors exist for every Weapon.

  • Though rarity below 10 is grouped into three groups, the Same Rarity bonus is not applied for groups; it requires an identical rarity. For example a 3 weapon does not give the Same Rarity bonus to a 1 or 2 weapon.
  • The Same Type and Same Rarity bonuses can be given together. For example using a Red Sword as a material item for a Zax provides both bonuses as they are both 7 Swords.
  • The Same Weapon bonus is mutually exclusive; it does not also give the Same Type and Same Rarity bonuses.
  • The EXP given by material items is the total EXP that it took to Enhance it to that level. Say we have a 1 weapon at +10, the EXP that it would give as a fodder would be the EXP it took to Enhance it to 10, which is 50, divided by 2; along with the base EXP value, the fodder would give a total of 27 EXP.
  • For Special Augments, the following Augments give varying EXP:
    • Empy Embrace - +90 EXP
    • EXP Weapon Mini - +400 EXP
    • Weapon Boost - +800 EXP
  • There is a chance to receive a Great Success while enhancing, granting 1.5x more EXP.

Element Enhancing

Element Enhancing is a way to increase your Weapon Element, thus making them stronger. You can enhance your weapon's element in the same way as you would regularly enhance your weapons + rating.

  • Same Rarity/Same Weapon/Same Element: Combining two copies of the weapon of the same element will give an additive effect on the element. (e.g two 20 Fire Katana will give 40 Fire.)
  • Same Rarity/Same Weapon/Different Element: Combining two copies of the weapon but of the different element will give the base weapon an increase of 10 in element, regardless of the Fodder's Attribute amount. (e.g upgrading a 20 Fire Katana with a 25 Ice one will give 30 Fire.)
  • Same Rarity/Different Weapon: Using a different weapon but of the same type and rarity will only give 1 element increase to the base weapon, regardless of the Fodder's Attribute amount.
  • Element Support Items will also increase the target weapon's Element in addition to the bonus granted by the initial fodder.

Photon Color

Certain pieces of equipment have an ability known as Photon Color. This is signified by a small color palette icon at the bottom left of the equipment's icon. The Item Lab is able to change the color of the target equipment at no cost.

All rings start at +1 and can be enhanced to +20 at the Item Lab by 1 level at a time, similar to units. The success rate is usually 80% for all levels, with some exceptions depending on ring. Unlike units, failure does not risk the enhancement level decreasing.

Each enhancement costs 30,000 Meseta. Depending on the ring, it may also cost Grinders, Lambda Grinders and rocks and/or rare gems from gathering. The material cost of enhancing some rings increases after the ring reaches +10 or +15.

Rings cannot be enhanced as soon as they are created; their enhancement level cap is determined by how much Ring EXP they have accrued. While equipped, rings receive 5% (rounded down) of the experience gained, including from client orders and missions. During quests it does not show in the Item Details immediately, but updates when any of the following happens:

  • Changing areas (including returning to the Gateship)
  • When the wearer gains a class level
  • When anything in the Equip Armor menu is changed
    • This includes equipping different outfits/outerwears/parts using the Fashion menu instead

It is not possible to use one ring to gain EXP and then switch to a different ring to give that the Ring EXP instead; the Ring EXP is still given to the first ring.

All L rings allow one of up to three stats they provide such as MEL Pwr (determined by ring) to be increased by +1 when they are enhanced; this must be chosen or the enhancement will be denied. This is not possible for R rings.

Enhancement usually increases the potency of the skill provided by the ring. An exception is compound rings, whose skills start at the effect of the +20 rings combined to create them. This means enhancing compound L rings only provides additional stats, and enhancing compound R rings does nothing.
