Sprite Weapon

Sprite Weapons were first sold at Bloodriven Village in the Sprite Club in June 2018 by ASGM Retser. They can be blessed, ensorcelled, and enchanted, although the latter is difficult (see below). Common or uncommon flares can also be added with an automated unlocking certificate. In 2018, they were sold off-the-shelf with a +20 (4x) enchant level. They have a special crush flare, known as a "sprite flare," that gets more potent as affinity grows.

Flares

Sprite Flare

All sprite weapons come with sprite flares, based on the crush critical table. These flares take up the script slot but leave the standard flare slot open, allowing for further upgrades or Consecrate (1604) flares.

The flares themselves can be turned on and off, cost mana, and come with a damage type of krush. A very rare service will be available to change this to any damage type. In addition, they grow stronger with higher affinity.
