In Elsword, equipment can be enhanced to increase their base stats. Most equipment will start without upgrades at enhancement level +0. However, some equipment found in dungeons or boxes can be enhanced at a random enhancement level, up to +9.

Enhancing Equipment

Equipment can be enhanced by a character with the Blacksmith profession or by a blacksmith NPC. Enhancing equipment will require ED and certain items, depending on the type of enhancement being performed.


Enhancement Types

Normal Enhancement

Normal Enhancement is the default process of enhancing equipment. This type of enhancement can be used for enhancing equipment of all enhancement levels. This type of enhancement will only require a certain number of Blessed Enhancement Stones to perform.

This enhancement will yield one of the following effects:

  • +1 enhancement level
  • No change
  • -1 enhancement level
  • Enhancement level reset to +0
  • Equipment will break and becomes unusable (This occurs only at enhancement level +6 and higher)


Protected Enhancement

Protected Enhancement is the second type of enhancement. This type of enhancement can only be used on equipment at enhancement levels +4 ~ +10. This type of enhancement will require the use of Blessed Enhancement Stones and Blessed Fluorite Ores.

This enhancement will yield one of the following effects:

  • +1 enhancement level
  • No change
  • Equipment will break and becomes unusable (This occurs only at enhancement level +6 and higher)


Special Enhancement

Protected Enhancement is the last type of enhancement. This type of enhancement can only be used on equipment at enhancement levels +11 ~ +12. This type of enhancement will require the use of Blessed Enhancement Stones and Blessed Fluorite Crystals.

This enhancement will yield one of the following effects:

  • +1 enhancement level
  • No change
  • -1 enhancement level
  • Equipment will break and becomes unusable


Advanced Enhancement

Main Article: Profession System#Advanced Enhancement

Advanced Enhancement is a type of enhancement that can only be used by characters with the Blacksmith profession.


Enhancement (Old)

Before the Enhancement revamp on August 24, 2016 in NA (July 14, 2016 in KR), there was only one type of enhancement process that could be used. This older process can still be used if the player wishes to. This enhancement process requires a single Weapon or Armor Enhancement Stone per attempt to enhance an equipment. The enhancement stone needed is dependent on the level requirement of the equipment being enhanced. Fluorite Ores can also be used to improve the enhancement but this is completely optional.

As of February 8, 2017 in NA (February 9, 2017 in KR), the old enhancement process can only be done in Altera Village by Agatha. No other blacksmith can access this enhancement type.


Magic Amulets

Magic Amulets are items that can automatically set a piece of equipment at an enhancement level equivalent to the level of the Amulet. These Amulets can be obtained from events, Ice Burners, and opening certain boxes.

Item Requirements

ED Cost

The cost of ED is dependent on the equipment's rarity and its reselling price at 100% durability. If the equipment is at enhancement level +9 or +10, the ED cost will be doubled. If the equipment is at enhancement level +11, the ED cost will be tripled.

Rarity ED Cost per Attempt
Common 25% of the resale price
Rare 25% of the resale price
Elite 37.5% of the resale price
Unique 50% of the resale price
Legend Perkisas: Weapon of Greed 37,800 ED
Eltrion MK2: Nasod Weapon 38,100 ED
Reawakened One's Weapon 0 ED


Enhancement Materials

The amount of materials needed to perform each enhancement attempt is dependent on the type of enhancement used and the enhancement level of the equipment.

Enhancement Level Normal Enhancement Protected Enhancement Special Enhancement

+0 1 N/A N/A
+1 1 N/A N/A

+11 9 N/A 9 1
+12 11 N/A 11 1


Blessed Restoration Scrolls

When a piece of equipment breaks, it will become unusable until it is restored through the use of Blessed Restoration Scrolls. The amount of scrolls needed to repair the equipment is dependent on its enhancement level.

Enhancement Level Number of Scrolls Needed
+5 and lower N/A
+6 1
+7 1
+8 2
+9 2
+10 3
+11 3
+12 4


Risks

When upgrading, you need to take caution that as you further upgrade your equipment, the risk of the item downgrading/breaking/resetting will increase.

From +2 → +3 onwards, upgrade may be unsuccessful

From +3 → +4 onwards, upgrade may downgrade when unsuccessful (from +3 to +2 etc)

From +6 → +7 onwards, upgrade may break or reset. A broken piece of equipment can no longer be equipped or sold until it is fixed with a repair scroll (bought from other players or in the cash shop). A reset will downgrade equipment back down to +0.

From +11 → +12 onwards, Blessed Fluorite Ores that prevent downgrading/resetting can no longer be used. Blessed Fluorite Crystals can only prevent resetting.

Benefits

Increased Stats

By upgrading your items, the base stats will increase by a certain percentage. This does not include additional effects or socketed stats. Equipment can be enhanced up to enhancement level +13.

In addition to the increase in base stats, enhancement levels can also affect stats gained from Magic Stones. Magic Stones will have a higher chance of obtaining their maximum values if they are used on an equipment with a high enhancement level.

Enhancement Level Base Stat Change  % Stat Difference
+0 100% 0%
+1 103% 3%
+2 106% 3%

+17 525% 50%
+18 575% 50%
+19 675% 100%
+20 875% 200%

Visual Effects

If weapons are enhanced to high enhancement levels, they will receive special visual changes to their appearance when equipped. These changes will only affect weapons and are purely cosmetic. These changes will also be visible when a weapon costume is equipped.

At +5 and +6, weapons will gain a shine effect where light will shine over it periodically. At +7 and +8, a light flow effect will be active, shining the weapon with light constantly. At +9 and +10, the light flow effect will be enhanced to give the weapon a blue outline. At +11 and +12, weapons will periodically emit electric sparks. At +13, the weapon will begin to emit a red aura and the previous effects, excluding the sparks, will be colored red.
