Weapons and gear in Forsaken World
This week, Perfect World updated its blog with an entry about Forsaken World‘s weapons and gear.
The game has a wide and varied amount of equipment available for the
aspiring adventurer. Along with regular pieces of armor and weapons,
there is a variety of ways to customize these pieces of equipment to fit
your play style. Socketing, identifying hidden stats, and fortification can all combine to make your set of equipment unique for your own build.
Sockets in equipment are directly related to the level of fortification
you apply to it. With the maximum number of sockets being four, you will
be capable of embedding a large variety of gemstones within them to
increase your stats and abilities. Additionally, embedding gemstones can
have several unique effects on your overall appearance.

Finally, identification is a system familiar to many players. Most items
will come with hidden statistics that must be unlocked with an
identification scroll. The higher level the item, the more powerful of a
scroll you must use. The best part is that if you don’t like the stats
that are unlocked, you can reroll them with another scroll until you get
the desired results.
