Weapon Level and Upgrading Guide

Weapon Level and Upgrading Guide

Overview

This is a quick guide on weapon levels and upgrading. In Dragalia Lost, weapons are vital in improving the health, strength and overall might of your character. They also provide you special skills when you upgrade them to tier 2 level.

Upgrading

In order to upgrade your weapon, you will need either other weapons on whetstones. You can farm whetstones from “The Imperial Onslaught” after completing Chapter 6 normal mode.

Each whetstone type provides the following:

  • Bronze Whetstone – 150 exp
  • Silver Whetstone – 1000 exp
  • Gold Whetstone – 3500 exp

You can also use 2 star weapons (250 exp) to upgrade as well. I highly recommend doing that before using your whetstones.

Tier Upgrading

Tier upgrading requires more than just whetstones. You will need various materials from different missions to upgrade it.

For example, if you build a 4☆ tier 2 elemental sword weapon (Level 1), it will cost you:

  • 240,000 Rupies
  • 15 Iron Ore
  • 110 Granites
  • 55 Meteorite
  • 20 Abyss stone
  • 50 Azure Insignia
  • Level 6 weapon smith requirement

A 5☆ tier 2 sword weapon (Level 1) will cost you:

  • 275,000 Rupies
  • 225 Granites
  • 65 Meteorites
  • 25 Crimson Cores
  • 25 Sword Tablets
  • 1 Twinkling Sand (usually only available in special events)
  • Level 8 weapon smith requirement

Needless to say, it will be a lot of grinding to get the materials.

Unbind

Each weapon can be unbinded 4 times to max level. The max level will depend on the the star grade of the weapon. In order to unbind your weapon, you need to feed 4 copies of its own. 5 star weapon copies take the longest to unbind as they cost a lot more.

You can also use the Damascus Ingot to unbind a 5 star weapon by 1 level. I only suggest using it on a 5 star elemental weapon. Below is the max unbind level for each weapon grade:

Unbinding1☆2☆3☆4☆5☆
Start110205080
Unbind 1115255585
Unbind 2120306090
Unbind 3125356595
Unbind 41304070100

Weapon Experience Level

Weapons require the most whetstones to level up. The reason for that is because a weapon can be enhanced 2 times and you will need to re-level them up again. In order to max out each grade, here are the whetstones required:

3☆ Max Unbinded Weapon

  • 43 Bronze Whetstones
  • 7 Silver Whetstones
  • 2 Gold Whetstones

4☆ Max Unbinded Weapon

  • 221 Bronze Whetstones
  • 34 Silver Whetstones
  • 7 Gold Whetstones

5☆ Max Unbinded Weapon

  • 784 Bronze Whetstones
  • 118 Silver Whetstones
  • 34 Gold Whetstones

We are not including materials required to upgrade a weapon to their 2nd and 3rd tier, so it is actually quite a bit of grinding to get the materials before you can max out a tier 2 or 3 weapon. Also, tier 3 weapons provide +50% bonus stats and skill damage if it is equipped by a character of the same element.
