Blade&Soul’s Cloths Have No Stats, the Eight Trigrams do
Blade&Soul is NCsoft’s upcoming action MMO, and if you don’t know, all cloths in this game work as cosmetic items only. The stats are provided by something else called the eight trigrams.
The eight trigrams add stats like health, basic attack, accuracy, evade, basic defence, parry and so on to your characters. A full set of trigrams are comprised of 8 pieces and you can have set bonuses and even beautiful armor effects once you have 3, 5 or 8 pieces of them.
Just like armors and weapons, you can disassemble a trigram when you need materials and on the other hand, you can combine 2 trigrams into a better one.
Blade&Soul has launched in Korea but the time for US and EU release is unannounced.
