Accessory Reform

[dev1244] Accessory Reform

* The following changes are planned for patch 1.21.
* All features are under development and subject to change.

  • Patch 1.21 will see major reforms carried out on accessories.

    Currently, the equipping of accessories is regulated by slot cost, and players cannot equip items in the location of their choice. In order to improve usability and achieve balance with the battle reforms commenced in patch 1.18, slot cost will be removed from the game and new accessories with revised attributes will be added.

    Once slot cost is phased out, players will be able to freely equip accessories, given that other equipping requirements are fulfilled. In order to preserve balance with the recently commenced battle reforms, however, the number of accessory slots will be reduced from nine to five.

    Recipes and attributes for “dated” accessories will remain unchanged. Similar to the Recipe Revamp, old and new recipes will coexist for a time, with the former to be phased out at some time in the future.

    • New Items & Recipes

      New items and recipes will be added, and their attributes and optimal equipping/synthesis levels will be implemented as follows:

      • Attribute Revisions
        The new accessories being planned will not necessarily offer enhanced Physical Defense; however, among them will be those that grant benefits such as increased Enmity, Control, and Gathering.
