Different Items Require Different Materials

Not all items will require the same materials - you'll have to make sure you bring the right materials for each individual piece of equipment you plan to upgrade. Also, higher rarity items will in turn require higher rarity materials to upgrade!

Main Benefit Is Increased Damage & Armor Values

Upgrading an item will provide benefits mainly in the form of increased weapon damage or item armor. You can also see what your post-upgrade values will look like before accepting the upgrade, so make sure to confirm the stats are all to your liking.
