    New Crafting and Upgrade Systems Now Available in Arcane Legends

    Now you can create powerful Gems and socket them into all of your items to improve item stats!

    As you adventure, you will collect different magical essences. Using Crafting you can distill these essences into various Gems. Socket Gems into your items to improve your stats! Trade, Buy and Sell Gems to other players! Use Crafting and Item Upgrades to improve your stats and be the most powerful Hero ever!




    Crafting:

    The Crafting System will allow you to create different, powerful Gems that you can then socket into your gear to improve their statistics. Initial Gem recipes include:




    In order to create a Gem, you will need to gather 10 Essences. Essences drop as you adventure, or you may purchase Essences from the Store. Essences can drop from most opponents, chests and breakables (like barrels and boxes).



    Essences are magical in nature and bind their energy to the person who holds them. As such, Essences are not tradeable. After you condense 10 Essences to form a Gem, you can trade the Gem or sell the Gem on the Consignment Shoppe to other players.

    The process of condensing 10 Essences into a Gem takes time. It takes 8 hours to create 1 Gem. You can have up to 5 total crafts or upgrades in progress at any one time on any one character.

    This is the first use of this new Crafting System. There is a lot of room for future expansion. The Arcane Legends Development Team is excited to use this new system to create compelling new content in the future for you.





    Upgrading:

    The Upgrade System will allow you to socket one or more (depending on the quality of the item) powerful Gems into your gear.

    The number of Gems any particular item will hold depends on the quality of the item:

    Epic items: 1 upgrade slot
    Legendary items: 2 upgrade slots
    Mythic or Arcane items: 3 upgrade slots

    Socketing a Gem is not a trivial task and takes time. While an item is having a Gem socketed, it is not available for use. Plan your upgrading carefully!

    Putting a Gem into the first socket takes 8 hours. A second and third socket take even more time.

    The amount of bonus that a Gem grants depends on the level of an item. In a level 36 item a normally bonded Gem grants a +3 stat bonus, while a superior bonded Gem grants a +6 stat bonus.

    When a Gem finishes imbuing into a socket, it has a chance to form a superior bond with the item for an additional bonus! Once you have a Gem socketed into an item, you can replace that gem with a new one and have a chance for that replacement to yield a superior bonded Gem! Replacing an existing socketed Gem takes 12 hours, regardless if it is in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd Gem slot.

    Here is an example walk-through of the Upgrade process socketing a Blood Gem to add some extra STR to a lvl 31 Entomed Hammer of Warfare.

    Step 1: Select Item



    Step 2: Select Slot



    Step 3: Select Gem



    Step 4: Review Upgrade Info



    Step 5: Confirm



    Step 6: Upgrade in Progress



    While the Entombed Hammer of Warfare is being upgraded it is not available for use. If you want your item right away, you can use Platinum to purchase through the timer. Any one character may only have a total of 5 Crafts or Upgrades in progress at any one time.

    Notice how the Super Gem stat bonus for the Level 31 Entombed Hammer of Warfare is +5, where a level 36 item can be +6. This scales up from level 10 items that are a base +1 with a Super Gem possible bonus of +2.

    The Crafting Station, where you can start new Gem crafts, start new Upgrades, review your current progress and pick up finished items is easily accessible from the main menu.




    As with Crafting, this is the first use of this new System. There is a lot of room for future expansion with Upgrades.

    Can you change the gems on sn item once you upgrade that item? Like from int to str gem if you have all the materials?

    Yes you can replace a gem with another gem when you have other gems to utilize.

    Horrible UI. The AD for other STS games cannot be disabled and is getting me seizure. Let alone all the holes in my inventory which are creeping the Jesus out of me.

    Great update!

    The only thing I noted so far is that it seems to be really hard to get a superior bonded gem. Maybe it was just bad luck but it would be nice to have an idea about the success rate on getting a superior bond.


    And for all doubters of my rockstar status:

    And please fix 'delete items' as it was.
    When I tried to keep legendary and mythics but only delete epic and rare items, it used to let me delete the items below what I clicked only.
    However now it just continues to delete with the items left 'up' even when nothing is left below . I almost deleted some of my milions items just becasue of this.

    New system's been ok so far for me unless/depends how rare super gem is which I haven't get one yet.
    42 plats to just try one gem is kind of too much tho, which might be good so even heavy plat users don't wanna use plats on there.

    However please consider this.
    We can't use our items for 4 days (minimum. Or a month) while upgrading which means we can't play this game for hthe period. For ex. I can't pvp, elite or arena without my upgraded mythic armor.
    Keep the upgrade time but let us use the item while it is upgraded.

    Thank you

    You can very easily play with out it, you might not be as powerful, but it doesn't stop you from logging into the game and enjoying yourself. I have EVERY item upgrading right now, and yet I'm still playing and doing runs.
