Weapon Engraving is a new system to empower certain weapons by engraving them with Engraving Stones. These allow the player to create a mix-and-match proc effect like those found on many titles and costumes, such as increasing attack power for a certain time at a low probability every time you jump.

General Information

The Engraving System window.

The system utilizes a new type of item, the Engraving Stones. These items can drop randomly from Pruinaum dungeons. These stones can come in three different types: red, indigo and gold; and three different grades: Ordinary (rare), Refined (elite), and Brilliant (unique). Red engraving stones determine the action that will cause the effect to trigger, such as "When jumping...". A better grade will have access to actions that are easier to perform. Indigo Engraving Stones determine the probability of the effect occurring. A better grade will provide a higher chance. Gold Engraving Stones determine the actual effect, such as increasing Attack Power by X% for Y seconds. A better grade provides higher benefits.

Currently, this system is only available for the Apocalypse Type-Void and Flames of Judgement-Demonic weapons. While the Apocalypse weapons only have 1 Engraving Slot, the Flames of Judgement weapons has 2 slots. The effect of the Red Engraving Stone must be unique across the slots available to a weapon, so multiple Engraving effects cannot have "When jumping..." as their action trigger at the same time.

How to use it

The system can be accessed by talking to Acela in Camp: Aurora Base.

Upon selecting your weapon, you can slot Engraving Stones in their respective slots just as you would Magic Stones for regular Socketing. It costs 2,400,000 ED to engrave a stone in its slot, and you will be able to choose whether or not to keep the effect you roll, or continue with the next stone. An effect will only be engraved once you hit apply, so you do not lose an existing stone that's already engraved should the new effect not be to your liking.

Engraving Effects

Once all 3 slots are full, an effect will be added to your weapon in the following format:
[Condition] have a [Probability] chance to [Effect] for 5 seconds (Does not trigger again for 20 seconds). (Does not overlap)

The full list of available options for each slot are listed below.
