    Seems Item World is more like Weapon World, since weapons are the only equipment that can be enhanced.

    Does anyone know if we will be able to upgrade armor, shields, or helmets in the future?

    On the same topic, I’ve noticed that besides high tide, most rare abilities are lvl 3, will we get lower/higher levels?

    If we follow JP then there are some bonus upgraded ones.
    For example, some of the 30% rare abilities have become 40% etc.

    This is my issue with it lol.
    My kelsus arena team has 10 fists between them (2 different types)
    These alone eat up 10 slots now, but it's worth it XD

    Too cheap to buy slots. All my slots I've gotten so far are from free tickets

    I'm at around 349/350 currently I think lol.
    I upgrade when I have no other option, I like keeping random crap as it may be useful at some point lol.

    I am most certainly convinced that there are 2 reasons enhanced items count towards the equipment total:
    1. Unique identifier in inventory for coding, etc. Logically it makes sense since we are creating customized versions of existing code, effectively recoding them as new items.
    2. Gumi wants you to expand your slots. I wholeheartedly believe item world is a smoke and mirrors ploy for many of us unwilling to toss some older stuff away to expand our slots.
    Gumi logic and app logic both apply here. We can't blame them for how custom weapons work against the inventory capacity, but you can most certainly count on them never changing that function since its yet another "money" maker, so to speak. We spend lapis to refill our orbs to make less room in our inventory to then spend lapis to expand said inventory. Seeing as lapis = currency and currency = $$$, there is a direct correlation.

    With all that said, I'd rather have IW than not have it at all, and I'd rather spend my lapis expanding my inventory than getting rid of things I may need or want later on. It's a double-edged sword, but it's the price that we pay for the feature itself.

    IW has allowed me to make the Gaia Hammer and Excalibur perfect for my Zarg, and the list goes on and on. To me, the price of expansion is worth the benefit of customization for a specific unit or in general. Bahamut Tear is obv OP for now, and having the option to make it even better? That's absolutely fantastic.

    That's why I'm at 513/520, because I like to hoard. You never know when an item can become handy, especially with stuff like elemental attacks (for like elemental chain quests, and I sold some of these and regret it later) or status ailment resistances and so on. Because I made that mistake once I never sell equipment with something on it again xD
