Summary of Weapon and Armors
In Grand Epic, weapon has five-element attribute damage. They are metal (damage), wood (damage), water (damage), fire (damage) and earth (damage). Armors have five-element attribute resistance. They are metal (resistance), wood (resistance), water (resistance), fire (resistance) and earth (resistance). These attributes can be enhanced in the Blacksmith's and Tailor's. However, attributes enhancement are limited to materials. And of course materials can also be enhanced. The attack power of weapon directly affects the attack power of character. And five-element attributes have significant impact during battle, too.
Metal attribute of weapon and armors can enhance the strength of character, wood attribute reinforces character's stamina, water attribute contributes on intelligence and fire attribute helps increase character's luck index while earth attribute strengthens defense power. The augment of weapon attribute won't show in character's attributes column but they actually take effects in fighting. For example, the metal(damage) of one player's weapon is A. The total metal(resistance) of his opponent's armors is B. When A>B/5, the player's weapon will generate additional harm to his opponent. The situation is the same for other five-element attributes.
Sum up every five-element attribute of weapon and armor the character has equipped. The one five-element attribute with the greatest value stands for the character's principal five-element attribute. If the value of every five element is the same, then the character's five-element attribute is neutral. Rules of five elements conquering and generating with each other: Metal conquers wood, wood conquers earth, earth conquers water and water conquers fire while fire conquers metal. Though there is an opposite relationship among five-element attribute, five elements generate each other: Metal generates water, water generates wood, wood generates fire and fire generates earth while earth generates metal. If a character with principal five-element attribute of metal attacks a character with principal five-element attribute of wood, he will cause additional damage finally. If an earth attribute player attacks a wood attribute player, the damage will be reduced. That is to say, player will prevail over his opponent if his five-element attribute conquers the opponent's. However, neutral player will not be affected.
The total sum of attribute value for weapon or armor determines the star number of the weapon or armor. The higher the value, the more stars it gains.
