Gear items for characters of ArcheWorld adopt a progression-centric system, rather than an enchant/destruct system. Same as character progression through XP, gear items will gain XP via ‘item progression’ and become better. Item progression requires the base(gear item), materials(XP) and fee(Archeum), with higher-tier gear requiring more materials. Gear items that reach a certain level can be upgraded to the next tier by awakening. Higher-tier awakenings require more cost, however, the difference in performance will be significant.
