Upgrading your weapons is crucial in Wo Long Fallen Dynasty. Doing so will allow you to increase the weapon’s base stats and make it stronger. This will allow you to fight stronger enemies without any issues. That is why this guide will show you how to upgrade your weapons in Wo Long.
As a new player, you might be confused about where to upgrade your weapon since you cannot find the blacksmith anywhere. Worry not because we will show you where you can find the blacksmith and how you upgrade your gear. With that said, let’s jump straight in and get started.
How to Upgrade Weapons
To upgrade your weapons, you need to find Zhu Xia, the blacksmith. To find her, you need to complete the game’s intro and defeat Zhang Liang. After you talk to her, you might be expecting her to pop up at every stage of the game. However, she can be found in your Hidden Village.
You can travel to your Hidden Village via the Battle Flag. Zhu Xia can upgrade your gear for copper, steel, and leather depending on how much you want to enhance your weapons.
Like in other Souls games, you will see a +1 appear on the weapon that you upgrade. If you upgrade a weapon, that will not increase its rarity but instead enhance its base stats. These are the stats that a weapon has in Wo Long:
- Base Attack and Attack Power
- Attack Bonuses (from Five Phases Virtues)
- Spirit stats
So, make sure that you talk to the blacksmith whenever you get a chance to upgrade your weapon.
How Do the Rarity and Stats Work?
If you find the same weapon in a different rarity, you will notice that its stats are the same. While I have both 1-star Ring Pommel Sabre, you will notice that both of them have different special effects. The same is the case between a 1-star and a 3-star Ring Pommel Sabre.
The base stats (Attack Power, Attack Bonus from Five Phases Virtue Points, and Spirit) will be the same for all weapons of the same name despite their rarity. This also applies to other gear like the armor as well.
That’s everything you need to know about how to upgrade weapons in Wo Long Fallen Dynasty. Upgrading your weapons is essential since it allows you to gain additional special effects and better stats. It will help you take on difficult enemies later in the game as well.
