Should I enhance into 4* elemental weapon ?
My halidom is lvl 5, smithy lvl 6 with facilities lvl 218. I have Xander and Naveed that I want to focus on. Both of them have a lvl (? tier ?) 2 *4 weapon now xander weapon lvl 55 and naveed weapon lvl 50.
Should I upgrade them (or just one for Xander specifically) into elemental weapon knowing it only takes 80ish more level to upgrade into halidom 6 and smithy 7 for *5 weapon ? I know the materials can be brought back by dismantling but it really takes a lot of gold.
Yeah you definitely should. 4* elemental weapons are relatively "easy" to craft and that 50% bonus damage really gives you an edge over a vanilla 5* weapon. Because yes, your 5* is going to remain vanilla for a long time.
5* elemental weapons is the longest project (that you know you can finish some day) that the game has to offer right now. 4* elemental are really good, and are better than 5* vanilla, just like the Halloween 3* elemental were clearly better than maxed 4* not elemental.
From my experience, an im basing this using a 3* t3 (teir 3 and not the halloween weapons) elemental at lv20 "not unbinded" to a 4* t2 fully unbound weapon, a 4* t2 full unbound weapon can outpower score a lv20 3* t3 weapon by a few points. So with is as an example, a 5* t2 fully maxed weapon should be close to a 4* t3 lv 20 elemental unbounded weapon. I could be off with the 4* unbounded max lv since im not at that point. So i would say stick with 4* elemental weapons till you can forge up to 5* teir 3. Im basing this theory here but this is what ive discovered when smithing so i hope this helps
Actually, while the 4* t2 weapons have greater power, the fact that when paired with the same element, elemental weapons grant a bonus to stats, then in the end, 3* t3 weapons do provide a greater bonus, and not to mention that when MUB both of them, the 3* t3 weapon is still performing better than a 4* t2 when paired with the same element. If you are on a budget, t3 elmentals are worth it, and then when comparing 4* elementals, than they are worth if you are really far from getting to 5* elemental weapons.
