There are two requirements to begin crafting an awakened weapon. These are
- player must be character level 65
- player must have 7500 curia library fame (from book quests)
To begin the process you must purchase a secret book from The librarian, conan in aven (395,465)
Each book gives you a quest to obtain the items required to craft the weapon you have selected.(each book gives a different weapon - there is only one awakened weapon of each type)
These items can include trial boss drops, guild boss drops, aven fame items and items purchased with crystal cross medals.
To see a list of awakened weapons check out
Check out the new procs on the katana, shield and rapier. Some of the others are good but these, especailly the katana are totally OP.
A few final points about awakened weapons.
1. They are non tradable
2. Any fortifications will be lost
3. All slots,gems and enchants will also be lost
Note - these weapons all need 6k or more crystal cross medals, so dont go spending them on fashion if you want to awaken a weapon. Any fame item required needs 16k fame in the appropriate aven vendor.
Good luck with your awakening guys.
