The next update for Blade and Soul arrives on December 5th, and your gear will never be the same. Specifically, a lot of it will be easier to improve; the costs on improving Grand Celestial Weapons, Riftwalk/Dawnforged Weapons, Galaxy Weapons, Raven Weapons, and more are getting tuned down. There’s also a new cap on gem slots for Legendary Weapons, as players will be able to get eight gem slots.a pretty comprehensive picture of how your gear will be changing. Or can be changed further. Gear is like that.
