Blade & Soul details the weapon upgrade system

blade and soul

Long gone are the days when a weapon was simply this static thing that you used to whack your enemies with – for example, in the upcoming martial arts MMORPG Blade and Soul, weapons have an upgrade system that allows them to grow in power and ability just as your character does. NCsoft details some of the weapon stages and the transformations that ensue, so that your weapon will be constantly evolving and changing stats and appearance. It’s not just weapons either; there is a selection of accessories that also increase in power in the same way as weapons do.

If you want to learn how this system works – which is pretty simple anyway – give it a look on the official post. Blade & Soul enters western closed beta in October 30, the first of five beta weekends.

    Been playing the russian client and it’s kind of a cool system. One downside is that at least early on, you don’t really have the money to feed weapons into em or you find the weapon that you need to stage 5 in order to progress the other weapon and stash space is rather limited so you end up keeping stuff because “I need it to breakthrough my stuff later”.
