New Elemental Gem

New elemental gems are added. The basic one grants +120 elemental attack stats.

dark elemental gem

There are 4 types of shiny grade elemental gem:
* +170 elemental attack
* +170 elemental attack + 100 HP leech
* +170 elemental attack + 8 attack
* +170 elemental attack + 122 critical damage
shiny lightning gem

There are 7 types of scorching grade elemental gem:
* +220 elemental attack
* +220 elemental attack + 140 HP leech
* +220 elemental attack + 12 attack
* +220 elemental attack + 204 critical damage
* +220 elemental attack + 12 attack + 204 critical damage
* +220 elemental attack + 12 attack + 140 HP leech
* +220 elemental attack + 204 crit dmg + 140 HP leech

fire gem

The lower grade elemental gem can be dismantled into elemental crystals and converted to higher grade ones. Although these elemental gems cannot be traded, the elemental crystals can be traded.

Apparently, the conversion is not 100% success. You will need some Rainbow Relic (another cash shop item) to ensure 100% success rate.

Elemental gem is also available in treasure trove. The best one are 1000g each.

TAT just when i was trying to get my s2.5 meteor to 8 with 4000gold they are now selling it at f5 for just 3000goold now TAT

saito

ok bro

saito
Guest

and also s2.5 level 8 to s2.8 lvl 3 id 100% success?

chaose5
Guest

yes, but not material discount from event.. very expensive too.. not recommended at the moment.

Saito
Guest

Thank you bro :)please make comparison between meteor s2.5 level 8 and s2.8at level 3 soon bro:)depending on that comparison only many of us think of getting s2.5 meteor level8 or get s2.5 comet level 8 and turn it to s2.8 level 3(PS:please before the discount event ends)

chaose5
Guest

Er turning it into S2.8 has no discount btw.. and the cost is not cheap too. I dont expect the price to come down anytime soon. I suggest you get lv8 S2.5, whichever your class need (not hoping to convert to S2.8)

saito
Guest

oh ok bro comet or meteor on evolution gives same stats for s2.8 at 3 ?

chaose5
Guest

yes

saito
Guest

THANK YOU BRO :)BY THE WAY both storm and meteor weapon at level 8 can be changed 100% to the new weapon at 3?!!if thats the case then i can buy storm type s2.5 at 8 cheaper than meteor like 2300gold only and spend 3000gold to get the new s2.8 level 3………is s2.5 at 8 or new legendary at 3 better?

chaose5
Guest

Only Meteor/Comet can be upgrade to new weapon… Storm weapon, can’t be connected to the new weapon (but CH said they will release the PVP continuation for this weapon in the future).

I will do the comparison between the 2 weapons after the upcoming tuning for new weapon….

bro if we create a new character from our account and get it to 50 we can get the red s1 bless???http://youxi.vip.qq.com/act/201512/jn_2.html?ADTAG=bangbang.hdsq

chaose5

Yes, but it is time-limited (rental) gear.

Hi chaose5,

Any info about elemental attack damage formula? When it said +220 elemental attack, does it means ‘additional damage’ or base damage which can be multiplied by skill?

Also, where can we get this “Elemental Gem Relic” from cash shop?

chaose5
Guest

The elemental attack formula is given by:

Elemental % = Elemental / (24.72 0.003421*Elemental)

Calculation mechanics is simple.. just multiply the damage with ( 100% add elemental % )

Refer to: http://www.freedomplays.com/blade-soul-damage-calculation-mechanics-level-50/

Er, the relic is in the cash shop; i will take a screenshot for you later…

saito
Guest

is s1 bless enough for prison and cemetry?

chaose5
Guest

in theory yes. but if you are going for pub, they might want you to have s2.5 🙁 and achievement to show that you have cleared before.

saito
Guest

bro how many english players are there in your server?i cant seem to play the cemetry or the prison as the chinese players in our server says they can take me since i cant chat in chinese….so i want to create a character in your server and transfer all the gold to your server…is that possible?

chaose5
Guest

i don’t think it is possible to transfer gold or any item over. We don’t have many players left as well, probably less than 10. However, we have been doing Prison frequently and now trying to clear hell furnace 😀

saito
Guest

bro the s2.5 discount upgrade lasts till what date?

chaose5
Guest

not sure, likely until the next update comes. Official source only mentioned that it is until end of December.

saito
Guest

i asked that because the link you pasted that chinese guy in test server who evolved his s2.5 has the discounted cost and materials so low……which only makes 3383 gold to get s2.5 to 8 even with 100%cash shop item!!!!!is the disounted cost and materials are same for the official server too??or its different?

chaose5
Guest

Yes, the cost is reduced by 30% for 1 month, in the official server too 😀

saito
Guest

bro i need your help!!!!!!!can you plese tell me the evolution cost and number of evolution materials now for s2.5 level 1 to level 2 and others now during the event with and without 100% cash shop materials?

chaose5
Guest

100% success: 175 spirit stone, 18 moonstone, 7 silverfrost evolve stone, 11 Nebula Shards, 7 Legendary weapon soul, 175g, 35 Weapon Relic.

not 100% success: 20 spirit stone, 2 moonstone, 4 silverfrost evolve stone, 6 Nebula Shards, 4 Legendary weapon soul, 30g

saito
Guest

i play warlock that can only use raging spirit 4 attatck only…i cant use dark attacks because of very high ping….so is s2.5 good for it?and can you send a screeshot of materials and cost for evolving s2.5 now?

chaose5
Guest

i have listed here: http://www.freedomplays.com/blade-soul-level-50-weapon-guide/4/ but now there is an event which cut materials and gold cost by 30%

i m not familiar with warlock skills.. but i am sure the higher attack n buff of s2.5 definitely helps.

saito
Guest

thanks for replying bro :)bro is the success chances of s2.5 evolution without the cash shop item got increased in official server now?if so how long does it last?can i exchange my warlock s1 bless to s2.5 and start evolving?or stick with s1 bless for warlock?is s2.5 at 8 or s1 bless best for warlock?

chaose5
Guest

the success chance is not as good as the test server but officially, it has been increased. It will last for 1 month.

The materials is very expensive now; consider switch to s2.5 and upgrading after 1-2 weeks from now.

of course s2.5 lv8 is better.
