s-series weapon boost

Blade & Soul CN will be implementing new update on 11th Nov 2014, including the much anticipated S-series (S1, S2, S3) weapon boost. The following information has been released by 17173, but the stats of the weapon might differ from the official update.

S1 Weapon Boost

Shiny prefix, which is the most common prefix, receives a major boost. This should come as a good news to average players since it is relatively cheap to level it. Blessed S1 weapon growth rate has been adjusted in such a way that the attack increase is distributed more evenly throughout each level. However, the maximum attack at level 10 is not changed. According to Tencent, Blessed prefix will not be boosted because of the low cost of obtaining it, if you are lucky.

The green text effect on all S-series weapons remain unchanged; the attack stats in the green text is now added to the base attack of the weapon.

S2 Weapon Boost

S2 weapon receives a major boost in attack for both shiny and blessed prefix. The base attack at level 1 is increased as well. Previously, the low attack and weak effect for Shiny S2 Dark do not justify the high cost of leveling S2 weapon and the rarity of the weapon itself. The quantum leap in attack, even for shiny prefix, for this new S2 looks very appealing. The S2 dark/light weapon will likely be the aim for average players as the developer mentioned that the drop rate of S2 weapon will be increased in the coming update.

The attack increase in green text effect for Shiny weapon is removed. The rest of the effect is the same as before.

For those who don’t know. Shiny Dark S2 comes with a hidden effect; whenever the attack buff is applied, one can hover over the icon and see an additional line of text which states that skill CD (all skills) has chance to reset when the buff expires. This CD reset effect only comes with the Shiny Dark S2 with MP recovery effect.

The other variant of Shiny Dark S2 without MP recovery does not come with the CD reset effect but it has 10% crit rate increase effect along with the attack buff.

What about the old gold legendary? Will it be outdated? Can i safely sell it or it can be exchange to something in some sort?

according to tencent recent dialouge with player, old gold legendary will be obsolete after the boost of S1, S2, S3 weapon. It can be exchanged for other items, but they never mention what items.

“the drop rate of S2 weapon will be increased”

50% skill damage is actually important for my class (BM 4 lightning blade. It increases my damage from 5x 27000 to 5x 40000). And I already shell out 220 gold for 4 trade seals (lol).

What do you mean by skill CD reset (hidden) in dark S2?

one of the variant of Shiny Dark S2 (the one with Mp regen), comes with a hidden ability, which can reset skill CD. This effect has been reported by many Chinese players who own the weapon.

Any more details about that? Which skill it resets? How often it triggers, and does the reset CD skill has a cooldown itself?

chaose5

all skill CD are reset upon trigger… not sure about the CD of the reset itself… also not sure how often it triggers… this video apparently demo it (but i am not familiar with LBM skill to appreciate it): http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNzg1MzgwNzI0.html

* added more details on the CD reset effect in the article itself 😀

Also, I already have S1 bless lv10. Currently in AH, they’re being sold for 3000 gold. I can sold this for the same price, then get S2 dark shiny lv10 for 2000 gold (500g profit + 20 more attack).

Am I doing the right thing? That’s why I’m concerned about both the blessed S1 and Shiny S2 green text effect.

Assuming nothing new is added to green text:

S1 blessed: proc effect + 250 atk+10% crit rate; skill damage +50%

S2 Dark Shiny: proc effect +120 atk; skill CD reset (hidden)

So the -20 atk might or might not be important, depending on how often you can proc the attak buff and how important is the 50% skill dmg to your class ..

If everything goes as promised by the developer, NEW effect will even be added to blessed S1… The decision is yours 😀

I will only do a detailed comparison after all info are released and finalized.
