Blade & Soul – Gems Guide

Gems are additional stat or damage boost that players can equip straight onto their weapon.


Gems can be obtained through boxes, transmutations, profession or treasure boxes. The maximum numbers of Gem Slots currently is 4 that can be unlocked in the inventory menu. The initial few breakthrough of the Hongmoon weapon only have 2 slots but will eventually go up to 3.
