Mechanics

Warriors of at least level 20 can use FEAT WPS to add critical/damage weighting, padding, or sighting (WPS) to weapons and armor. Warriors can add one service of WPS to a piece of gear at a time. Each service requires 25,000 grit for torso armor and weapons, or 10,000 grit for armor accessories. Adding a service using grit does not increase the number of services in a service window for merchant, NPC blacksmiths, or using grit itself.

*Elven Armor Note: Per GM Oscuro, "The way the gear difficulty for item scripts system works is there's an overall difficulty set, then each spell can overwrite that as needed. Loresong doesn't report the per-spell value, just the global difficulty setting." Elven Armor has an overall difficulty of -70/-140/-200/-200 which would be used as the difficulty for non-magical enhancement. Under magical enhancement (such as 620/735/925) this difficulty setting is overridden to the listed 10/20/30/40.

†Subscript penalties stack with all other modifiers.
