[Guide] Understanding Equipment in CABAL 2

Equipment and Items, just like every MMORPG or hmm every games, they always hold a big role. In CABAL 2, there are thousands of items that can be collected all over Ektensia. In this post, I’m aiming for explaining Equipment and how to enhance them.

Equipment tooltip UI

First thing first, check out the Equipment tooltip UI, later I will name it as Equipment UI. This can be seen every time you move your mouse over an item or click on item link.

20150810_cb2_guide_items_understanding_stats

At the top position, the item name lays there. Item name is colourised, and the colour depends on rarity (grade) of item.

  • White White : Normal / Junk
  • Green Green : Fine
  • Blue Blue : Rare
  • Purple Purple : Heroic
  • Burnt Orange Burnt Orange : Legendary
  • Amber Amber : Epic

Next is the equipment type, it could be shoes / primary weapon / secondary weapon / gloves / …

Character Required Level / Class will be shown next, your character must be matched with the given class and level must be at least like stated for equipping the item.

Item Properties will show if the item can be traded, stored, refurbished…

Item Level is another info, it let us know how fine item is, higher Item Level means higher limitation for stats. This info will be the key factor for determining which Enhancing items needed to be used (look for more at Item Level below).

Item Basic Stats are stats that will be there, fixed for every item with the same name. These stats can be enhanced with Upgrade Core (look for more at: Enhancing with Upgrade Core below)

Item Random Stats are stats that will be randomly rolled for each of items, even they have the same item name, random stats can be different (in stats options and values). These stats can be enhanced with Ability Core (look for more at: Enhancing with Ability Core below)

Item Set Equipping Status will show how many items you equipped and how many are available for the whole set, detailed set bonus will be displayed as well, just a little below.

Item Level

Depends on Item Level (not the Character Required Level), the equivalent Core level should be used for enhancing item. For example, an item that required level 40 to equip but might need Core Level 50 for enhancing, because Item Level is 47, so the Lv 40 cores are not enough for enhancing it.

Enhancing with Upgrade Core

Enhancing with Upgrade Core is just like with others, right click on the Core, and put your item inside the slot. That’s all! But not all items you can enhance with Upgrade Core. Since Upgrade Core just increases the Basic stats, only items with Basic stats can be enhanced.

On success, basic stats of items will be raised. Bonus stats will be shown in pair of bracket ( and ).

On failure, there are different kinds of penalty.

For details of bonus stats and penalties check this table.

Enhancing with Ability Core

Enhancing with Ability Core is just like with others, right click on the Core, and put your item inside the slot. That’s all! Ability Core increases the Random stats.


20150810_cb2_guide_items_understanding_ability_core_put

 

Bonus stats will be shown in pair of bracket ( and ). Current grade of enhancing with Ability Core will be shown after “Force Upgrade +x” for example, here is 2.

20150810_cb2_guide_items_understanding_ability_core_fail

Enhancing with Force Core

Enhancing with Force Core is just like with others, right click on the Core, and put your item inside the slot. The main point here is Force Core is available to use with items with free slots only.

20150810_cb2_guide_items_understanding_force_core_success
Here is the list of available Force Cores.
