Reforging weapons is the process of spending SKILL tokens to burn one weapon into another. The target weapon receives bonus power, and the burned weapon disappears.
Alongside weapon forging, reforging serves as one of the two SKILL sinks in the game. Reforging also gives value to the massive amounts of one to three star weapons that a player may receive when trying to forge for four or five stars.
A reforged weapon displays new information when hovered over. This is the LB, 4B, 5B, and Bonus Power.
LB stands for Low Star Burn and is the total value of one to three star weapons burnt.
4B stands for Four Star Burn and is the total value of four star weapons burnt.
5B stands for Five Star Burn and is the total value of five star weapons burnt.
Bonus Power is a new stat gained when reforging that is used alongside weapon attributes to determine player power for combat rolls.
More information on how Bonus Power is used can be found here:
The rarity of the burnt weapon determines which burn pool the value goes to, and for the case of LB determines the amount of burn points to add.
LB, 4B, and 5B have a maximum limit independent of one another, and each point increase in each respective pool contributes to the weapon's total Bonus Power.
Refer to the following table for maximum amount of burn points and the bonus power per point received.
This means that a fully reforged weapon can have a maximum of 2850 bonus power.
Depending on the rarity of the weapon and the current value of the pool, the amount increased per burn may change.
Refer to the following to determine how much the pool will increase when the respective weapon rarity is burnt.
- 1-star weapon burns increases LB by one
- 2-star weapon burns increases LB by two.
- 3-star weapon burns increases LB by three.
- 4-star weapon burns always increases 4B by one.
- 5-star weapon burns always increases 5B by one.
When using an already reforged weapon as a burn weapon, half of the burn weapon's LB, 4B, and 5B gets carried over to the new weapon.
In the case of decimals due to dividing an odd numbered LB, 4B, and 5B, the number is rounded down to zero.
