I think I may have mis-understood, and read the wrong thing into the write-ups for both Parasite &, now, Sprite weapons.

Is it in fact the case that you can simply use them, and the Affinity will grow (including up through all 9 levels, from Tier 0 through 1 & 2 to arrive–eventually–at 3)?

And the unlock vouchers are simply a way of spending bloodscrip to achieve that same result, without the concomitant time spent hunting with the item(s)?

>>Erek, did you ever do any Team matches? I would imagine that your aiming–with benefit of Tonis–would just plow through multiple-creature rounds….
(And for future reference: do you wanna? 🙂

Let’s try a few matches next Arena. Elysia and I were going to but we never tried it. That was to be the exact strategy too: Hit Tonis on the uncrittable champions. Everything else went down like a cheap… yeah..

Leafiara would probably know more, but I think there’s a max affinity per tier, so say for Tier 1, you can’t get beyond Affinity… 3 (I am making that up, but you get the idea), and next Tier (2) you can go to a higher affinity, etc.

So you can go only so far (via Affinity) until you buy the next voucher to open up the next bunch of ranks of Affinity to grow into?

Leafi? Clarify?

Right, there’s a max affinity depending on how far unlocked it is:

T0 = affinity 0-1
T1 = affinity 2-3
T2 = affinity 4-6
T3 = affinity 7-9

One thing I’m not sure about, since I went for the T3, is whether there’s also an associated cap on the mana/health bound to the weapon… If there isn’t, then you could still spend time over a few months putting 100,000 mana/health into the weapon, then later on buy T2 and T3 vouchers and pray straight to affinity 9.

I’ll let you know as my lil lowbie works on his. I bought late, so only got a T1 (the other waivers had sold out), and so far he’s only spent his first day with it, so 2,000 mana. If I can’t go past 5,000 (gimme a couple of days) I’ll let you know. Unless someone else reading has already done this?

No it caps it. I have a T1 and I can’t make the counter go up over 5,000 mana.

Affinity is capped by Tier. The wiki outlines it.

I had seen that the Tiers contained Affinities, but was uncertain of whether you could just power your way through them or use the certs to jump you there.
Turns out you use the certs to unlock access to then be able to power your way through them; good to know!
