The much awaited Reawakened Rank 8 set upgrade is now here, with custom balance modifications.

We are pleased to announce the final release of the Reawakened Rank 8 set upgrade. The first part was releasing it with the set bonus modifications and now the remaining craft addons balance and general fixes have also been completed.

Below you will find the most important information about the Reawakened Rank 8 set and its changes.

Where to get Reawakened Rank 8?

Craft

You can craft the Reawakened Rank 8 (r8r) weapons and armor at the Crimson Officer Zhao NPC located in Cromagnon Village. For each item he will ask you for the following items:

  • Matching Nirvana Grade 15 piece. Both Twilight Temple and Lunar options of Nirvana gear are accepted.
  • Dragon Blood Stone (the required number was reduced from the default one of 500 to 100).
  • Dragon Jade Stone.
  • Coins.

The crafting will preserve the refine level, socket number, and shards of the selected Nirvana gear.

Notice that every class has a different and exclusive set, so make sure you are choosing the right one before crafting.

Hidden Dragon Den

From this cave, you can obtain Dragon Blood Stone and Dragon Jade Stone. The former comes mostly from boss drops inside the cave, while the latter comes from finishing the main quest which is given upon entering the instance. You can also exchange them for one another at the Crimson Officer Ling NPC, next to Zhao.

The rewards here have been greatly increased from the default ones.

You can enter the cave alone, but you will need at least 6 characters to activate the chains “at the same time”, which is required near the beginning in order to complete it. Note that the time limit to activate the chain has been increased from 10 to 60 seconds in order to make it possible to use some alt accounts to do it.

 

Note: You can now also get Dragon Blood Stone and Dragon Jade Stone from exchanging Undercurrent Coin from Undercurrent Hall instance.

How to change Reawakened Rank 8 stats?

Reforge

You can change the randomly given stats from the available stats pool at the Spirit of the Forge NPC. It will ask you for:

  • The current set piece
  • Dragon Blood Stone (weapons: 5, armors: 2)
  • Chienkun Stone (weapons: 10, armors: 5)
  • Coins

It will also preserve the refine level, sockets, shards, etc. In other words, it will only change the variable stats. Furthermore if you are not happy with the random results, you can choose to keep your current stats at no additional cost.

Hone

Once you have the desired stats, some of them may be “range-based stats” in that their value can be lower or higher. For example, the stat vitality 6~12 means the actual value may be any of the numbers between 6 and 12 (included).

Honing, or Soulsealing the equipment will keep the current stats, but change their value randomly. This can be done at the “Fortifications: Hone” forge located in Archosaur. It will ask you for:

  • Dragon Blood Stone (weapons: 5, armors: 2)
  • Supply Tokens (weapons: 5, armors: 2)
  • Chienkun Stone (weapons: 10, armors: 5)
  • Coins

Like reforging, honing will also preserve the refine level, sockets, and shards. You will not, though, be able to keep your current stat values once you change them.
