How to upgrade a Shadow Weapon

Postby Elmar » Tue Sep 06, 2016 5:55 pm

As of the "Introducing the Power" update it is possible to upgrade a Shadow weapon into a Strengthened Shadow Weapon. For this purpose three very arduous one-time quests must be performed, i.e. only one weapon per character can be upgraded. All three quests can be picked up at lvl 99.

"The Weapon that Awakens the Blacksmith's Soul - 1"

Neti in Gludio sends you on an odyssey to meet several Blacksmiths. The last of them, the Blacksmith of Mammon, requires you to clear the Nightmare Kamaloka and the Atelia Command Post Instance 5 times each. Then 3000 (three thousand) monsters in the upgraded Enchanted Valley must be killed (if you are soloing it, you should be at least lvl 102).


"The Weapon that Awakens the Blacksmith's Soul - 2"

The Blacksmith of Mammon gives you 10 Shadow Ingot Fragments (tradeable) and tells you to have Neti synthesize 1 Shadow Ingot (non tradeable). The compounding (2 Fragments -> 1 Ingot) can fail; the honorable FirepowerDamagedealer had to give Neti 3 Fragments until she got her Shadow Ingot.

Then you must bring the Blacksmith of Mammon a +0 Shadow Weapon of any kind (the non-tradeable variety from the Gludio instance) and enchant it for him to +7. Using Lucky Stones, Giant's Scrolls etc. is permitted:

In exchange for the +7 weapon the Blacksmith of Mammon gives you a few Shadow Crystals you must deliver to Ishuma and Shadai so that they can participate in the research.


"The Weapon that Awakens the Blacksmith's Soul - 3"

The Blacksmith of Mammon tells you to go to Hellbound and collect at Beleth's Magic Circle 500 Crystals Enchanted with Magical Power (you get one from each monster killed) for Shadai; from the Upper Floor of the Giants' Caves you must bring 500 Ores Enchanted with Giants' Energy for Ishuma (also one item per kill). If you are not lucky, the Blacksmith of Mammon will send you back to Hellbound or the Giants' Caves to bring again 500 items, depending on his mood up to 6 times. But in the end he will give you your Strengthened Shadow Ingot which you can take to Neti who will use it to upgrade your Shadow Weapon:

One week after the patch went live, the probability to receive the Strengthened Shadow Ingot early on has been increased:
