Upgrading Novus to Nexus

Players needs to speak to Jalzahn in North Shroud (x29,y19) with their Novus Weapon equipped. After completing the Mmmmmm, Soulglazed Relics quest, players can speak to Jalzahn to choose the weapon to soulglaze. With the soulglazed Novus weapon equipped, player will earn "light" by completing dungeons, trials, FATEs, Treasure Hunt, Alexandrite Maps, The Wolves' Den and Frontlines. After gaining enough "light" and returning to Jalzahn (option "Relic Weapon Novus Enhancement"), the Novus weapon will transform into a Nexus weapon.

Different activities give different amounts of "light". "Light" earned will appear in the chat log after completing the activity. Light levels are Feeble Light (least "light"), Gentle Light, Blinding Light, Brilliant Light and Newborn Star (most "light").

  • Each type of Light has a secret value that advances your Novus into Nexus. Players will need to reach 2000 "light" points.
