Game functions and increasing combat power
The backpack and equipping gear
The backpack displays all the items you currently have. It has a total of 100 slots. Remember that there are 2 types of items, the usable and unusable items. Gears are your bread and butter when it comes to increasing your combat power. Once you acquire gear, the game will automatically prompt you to equip it. The same goes if you acquire a higher tier gear.
Some of these can be dismantled for crafting materials and gold. The higher the item level and quality, the more items and gold you’ll get from dismantling them. Once your backpack is full, you won’t be able to acquire any more items, so always be sure you have enough slots and get rid of unnecessary items.
Strengthen (Equipment Enhancing)
Blessing or basically enhancing your equipment will increase your overall stats and combat power. You need to spend blessing stones to enhance gears.
