In Blade and Soul, Weapons, Soul Shields and Accessories are the main types of equipment. New weapons will be obtained as you progress through the story until the Ivorymoon Weapon is acquired, which will be upgraded and evolved through multiple stages by being offered either weapons or elements (obtained through the story, daily dash or transmuting). Evolving the weapon from stage 5 or 10 will require use of a breakthrough weapon and additional materials.

In the case of accessories, players are currently limited to using accessories obtained as either drops or storyline rewards. Following the update on April 12th 2017, completing act 6 of the story will reward the player with a set of Pinnacle accessories, which are currently the best non-elemental and non-legendary accessories available.


To read more about the weapons of Blade and Soul, check out the Weapons page.
Weapons can only be equipped by their respective class.

Gems and Weapon Sockets[]

Gems can be added to your weapon to provide additional stats. Weapons cannot have more than one gem of the same color, regardless of shape or quality. In order to use a gem, the weapon must first have an open socket.

By default, weapons have one open socket. Opening additional sockets require Gem Hammers and a monetary fee that increases with the weapon's evolution. Also note that upgrading to Legendary (Baleful/Seraph weapons) will reset gem sockets. Opening additional sockets for legendary weapons requires Legendary Gem Hammers.

Soul Shields[]

Soul Shields improve a character's attributes, but only while the character is clothed (i.e. wearing a costume). Soul Shields may improve stats like Health, Critical Hit, Defense, Accuracy, Block, Evasion, Piercing, and Critical Defense. Soul Shields themselves may also be improved through infusing, a process which consumes Soul Shield Primers to improve the attributes of the Soul Shield receiving infusion.

Soul Shields may also provide cumulative set effects when equipped in groups of 3, 5 or 8. It is important to note that mixing groups of soul shields has become a common practice to maximize one's damage output.

(For example, 5 pieces of the Asura Soul Shield set with 3 pieces of the Yeti Soul Shield set used to be Best in Slot because the combination allowed the user to receive the 5 AP bonus and 7% critical hit damage from the Asura set, alongside the Piercing and high critical hit stats from the Yeti set.)


Outfits, primarily cosmetic in nature, may also provide a secondary PvP function. If a player equips a faction outfit, that player will be flagged for PvP against players of the opposite faction. Most available outfits can be referenced and visited in the in-game Wardrobe (ONLY for premium membership players). Certain outfits, like Driven, have not been added to the wardrobe. For further information, visit Blade and Soul Wiki's Outfit section.

It is also worth noting that Soul Shields only work when the player has an outfit equipped.
