Item Enhancement

Equipment Enhancing

Enhancing NGS weapons and armor Units can be done through the Item Lab in Central City. Every equipment you use to enhance another piece of equipment will cost you one N-Grinder and an amount of N-Meseta based on the rarity of the item being enhanced.
Enhancement can not go beyond certain points for equipment without Limit Breaking based on the item's rarity. The starting limit is at +10 for 1, +20 for 2, +30 for 3 and +40 for 4.
Enhancing equipment will not risk any failure.

Grand Total 15,000 22,500 37,500 52,500 60,000 67,500 75,000

Equipment will get stronger the higher their enhancement value is. For weapons, lower rarity weapons will receive a larger increase to their attack power. For units, the increase remains static for every presumed rarity.

+40 - +49 Ability (NGS) 0/4

Limit Breaking

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

For all weapons and units the maximum Enhancement Limit is currently 50.

Limit Breaking equipment to +50 requires the NGS Tool Icon Arms Refiner material, which can be dropped from Megalotix Enemies or exchanged from the Item Lab.

The Enhancement Limit of a Weapon or Unit can be raised by Limit Breaking it in the Item Lab at the cost of materials and N-Meseta. Each Limit Break increases the Enhancement Limit by 10.

Potential Unlocking

Potentials can be unlocked on weapons, which greatly increases the power of the weapon and can provide unique abilities to the player. N-Meseta and Minerals are used to unlock the potentials of weapons. The cost for unlocking potentials gradually increases with the Level and Rarity of the weapon. At Level 4, NGS Tool Icon N-EX-Cubes are required.

EXP Value Overview of Fodders

Rarity Base EXP Same Item EXP Base N-Meseta Cost*
1 100 50 1,000
2 200 100 2,000
3 350 175 3,000
4 600 300 4,000
5 700 350 4,200
6 800 400 4,500
7 900 1,350 4,700
  • Base Cost is the the cost associated with the base equipment. If you are enhancing a 2 item, you will pay 2000 N-Meseta regardless of the fodders rarity.
  • The Same Item bonus is applied when enhancing a unit with a unit of the same name. It is a +50% bonus that applies to the final EXP total after Base EXP, Enhancement EXP and Affix EXP.
  • The EXP given by material items is the total EXP that it took to Enhance it to that level. For example, 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 1000, divided by 2; along with the base EXP value, the fodder would give a total of 600 EXP.
  • Silver Primm Swords, Gold Primm Swords and N-EXP Weapons have built in Ability (NGS) Esperio and Ability (NGS) Hi Perio Augments that provides extra EXP when used as fodder, granting 600 / 800 / 5200 EXP in total. The Perio EXP bonus applies before the same item bonus making them give 900 / 1200 / 7800 EXP currently when used in same type enhancement.
  • There is a chance to receive a Great Success while enhancing, granting 2x more EXP.


Ability (NGS) Affix Augments (NGS) Ability (NGS) List of Augments (NGS) Ability (NGS) PSO2 Augment Conversion

Also known as Abilities, Augments are like enchantments that can be added to Weapons and Units to increase their damage, increase max HP & PP and grant other useful effects.

In New Genesis, Augments are now added to equipment by using Augment Capsules. When using one copy of a Augment Capsule on its own, the Augment from that capsule will have a very low chance of successfully affixing to the equipment, however if multiple copies of the same capsule are used, you can improve the success rate for that Augment.

For example, to add the "Ability (NGS) Forms Soul I" Augment to a weapon, using one "Ability Capsule (NGS) C/Forms Soul I" capsule will give it a 9% chance of succeeding, but using 10 of the capsule, and the chance to successfully affix to the weapon increases to 90%.

Equipment comes with an Augment limit cap that determines how many different Augments can be affixed to that piece of equipment. So far, weapons and units have only been seen with a cap of 2 Augments. A 3rd slot can be adding by Grinding the equipment to +20 and a 4th slot by Grinding to +40. Multiple Augments can be affixed at the same time in all of the slots available.

Certain Augments can be exchanged in the Augment Capsule Exchange Shop.

A list of all Augments can be found on the List of Augments page.

PSO2 Augments

When importing equipment with Augments or S Grade Augments from Phantasy Star Online 2, they will be replaced by Legaro Augments of corresponding value while in New Genesis. These changes are temporary and the original abilities will remain upon returning to Phantasy Star Online 2. A list of what augments convert to what on the PSO2 Augment Conversion page.


Weapons have inherent properties called Potentials which can be considered as an additional skill for the player, so long as the weapon is equipped and drawn out; they range from damage buffs, to utility skills like improving healing items. These must be unlocked on each of your weapons by using Photon Chunks and N-Meseta.

PSO2 Weapon Potentials

New Type weapons imported from Phantasy Star Online 2 that have unlocked Potentials will have their Potentials converted into equivalent New Genesis Potentials. These changes are temporary and the original Potentials will remain upon returning to Phantasy Star Online 2.

Add Preset Skills

Preset Ability (NGS) Preset Skills can be transferred from one piece of equipment to another, provided the equipment has an identical name. Depending on the Preset Skill level and the equipment, the cost to transfer Preset Skills will differ. There is no N-Meseta Cost associated with adding Preset Skills.

You can combine two weapons of different types together to create a "Multi-weapon", a special weapon that allows for the use of both weapons from one weapon palette. This includes using the normal attacks, Photon Arts, Weapon Actions, and class equip requirements of both weapons.

When selecting a base weapon to combine, other weapon attributes of the base weapon, such as Potential or Color Variant will be shared to the other weapon you combine with. Unique weapons under the same weapon series with different potentials, such as the 5 Relik Series can use another Relik Series potential by doing this.

In order to combine weapons, they must be of the same 'series'. For example, while you are able to combine a "Sword (NGS) Theseus Sword" and "Rifle (NGS) Theseus Rifle" together, you cannot combine a "Sword (NGS) Theseus Sword" with a "Knuckles (NGS) Trois De Knuckles".

The process of creating a multi-weapon cannot be reversed to return the weapons used to their original state.

Exchange Shops

In addition to other Item Lab functions, unique Augments and Enhancement Materials can be exchanged through the Item Lab.
