Weapon visuals guide

With essences:

  • Standard Weapons with enhancement bonuses such as a +1, +2, +3, will all show an essence's effect.
  • Visuals will show on a crafted weapon of Greensteel, Masterly Steel or Masterly Damask.
  • The only essences to grant visual effects are +4 and +1d6.
  • Acid, Cold, Electrical, Fire and Sonic will all grant visual effects to these weapons.
  • Divine, Positive and Negative will not show any visual effects.
  • Gloves will never show any visual effects.


For more information see the article about essences. Note that when an essence is applied to a weapon, all previous elemental damage bonuses will be removed from that weapon (Acid, Cold, Divine, Electrical, Fire, Negative, Positive, and Sonic), regardless whether the bonus is original of the item or was added through essences or enchantment.

Level requirement guide

All this information is now obsolete since the Level requirement from items was completely removed as of 2017.

All items on Arelith have a level requirement you need to meet in order to use them. The required level is calculated based on the item's value. Below is a chart listing the required level for each weapon type, based on the value of the weapon.

Double Swords

Please note that the base value of a double sword is twice that of the next most expensive melee weapon and as such the level required to wield this weapon can differ from other weapons.

Level requirement guide for Arrows

It is possible to have three types of elemental damage on each stack of arrows. To do this start off with an arrow bundle and apply both permanent and temporary essences of different types to it then 'split' the bundle to make the temporary essences become permanent. When using the arrow stacks created from the bundle you may add a temporary essence of a third type of damage to each. The duration of a temporary essence is 6 in game hours (36 minutes).

If you feel that temporary essences becoming permanent is 'odd' try thinking of it this way; "How much temp essence is needed to coat my sword? A whole lot. So it is thinly coated so it doesn't last long. How much is needed to coat an arrow head?" Another way to look at it, is what has the arrow done to make the essence wear off? On a sword, it is assumed you're using it, ergo the timer. An arrow is a one-time use.

  • For +2 essences read the entries for +1d4 ones since their level requirements are identical. 1d4 however is the superior essence with 2.5 average damage.
  • +3 essences are inferior to +1d6 ones (3.5 average damage) but can require a higher level.
  • If your character is of insufficient level to use a particular stack of arrows, splitting the stack will allow them to do so.
  • Applying a temporary essence to a single stack of arrows is NOT taken into account in calculating level requirement, something which is true of all temporary properties.

Arrow Administration

When a stack of arrows is emptied, the character will automatically equip another quiver from the inventory, if any. This may seem random, but the quiver selected is always the last one entering the inventory. Knowing this, you may carefully drop and repick which arrows you desire to use next when your current quiver is spent, and thus save other stacks of arrows that you may wish to keep for a different encounter.
