The grading system is the latest method to further strengthen your gears. When an equipment is graded, it will have distinctive features for the level of grade.

Grading serves 4 main purposes:

  1. Acquire grade-specific bonuses from an equipment. These bonuses are cumulative.
    • Example: Grade B Thanatos Bow-AD will provide all bonuses described under [Bonus by Grade] for Grades D, C, and B.
  2. Acquire grade-specific bonuses from a card. (Future Implementation)
  3. Provide additional enchant options and increase in probability for Enchantment System. (Future Implementation)
  4. Increase stats gained from refine.

Each grade has a certain percentage bonus compared to an ungraded item. Refer to the Refine page for exact values.

Grade Additional Refine Bonus
Weapons Armors
Grade D 10% Increase in ATK & MATK per Refine ?
Grade C 30% Increase in ATK & MATK per Refine ?
Grade B 50% Increase in ATK & MATK per Refine ?
Grade A 100% Increase in ATK & MATK per Refine ?

Example: Grade B weapon will provide 12 ATK & MATK per refine (8 * 1.50 = 12).
