The weapons system has been updated. All weapons now have 3 additional stats Balance, Critical, and ATK Speed.
- Balance - This new attribute will determine the range of damage the weapon inflicts. In other words each weapon's damage will vary based on the Balance of it. For example, if a weapon's balance is 80, it will have a chance to inflict between 80% - 100% of total damage.
- Critical - Determines the chance for a critical hit. Critical rates for weapons will add to the existing critical rates characters have. Please note that critical rates can be increased by various means such as the “Critical Hit” skill and the character's “WIL”.
- Attack Speed - Weapons speeds will vary from Slow, Normal, and Fast.
