Nebular weapons were released at the June 2018 run of Duskruin Arena in the Penitent Petitioner shop.

During the day, nebular weapons grow stronger (+ to AS) from the moment the sun sets until midnight (+ 6 to AS) when they are at their strongest. As the night wains, so does their power and after sunrise, they grow even weaker until noon (-4 to AS) when they are at their weakest.
