Upgrading Weapons in Nightingale

To upgrade your weapons in Nightingale, you will need to use the Upgrade Bench crafting station. The process of upgrading increases the rarity of your weapon, which in turn boosts its stats and gearscore. Here are the steps and materials required:

  1. Build an Upgrade Bench: Depending on the tier, you will need different materials:
    • Simple Upgrade Bench: Ingot x2, Lumber x4, Twine x3.
    • Refined Upgrade Bench: (we’ll update with this recipe)
    • Excellent Upgrade Bench: Etched Alloy Ingot x3, Gilded Lumber x4, Carved Stone x3.
  2. Collect Essences: Upgrading your weapon’s rarity requires Essences, which are found in different Realms or can be purchased from the Essence Trader. The required Essences are:
    • T1 Essence for Uncommon upgrades: Found in the Antiquarian, Astrolabe, and Provisioner Realms.
    • T2 Essence for Rare upgrades: Obtained in the Hunt, Gloom, and Herbarium Realms.
    • T3 Essence for Epic upgrades: Located in the Ascended Realm after discovering The Watch.
  3. Upgrade Your Weapon: Use the Upgrade Bench with the required Essences to increase your weapon’s rarity from Common to Uncommon, Rare, and finally, Epic. Each upgrade not only boosts the weapon’s stats but also adds infusion slots for further enhancements.
