In this guide, we’ll tell you how to upgrade weapons in Granblue Fantasy: Relink.
How to Upgrade Weapons in Granblue Fantasy: Relink
Upgrading the weapons of the characters in Granblue Fantasy: Relink will require you to talk to a Blacksmith and provide him with the required materials. You can find a blacksmith named Gruff in the Floca, Frontier Town and the required materials for upgrading the weapon is Fortitude Shard.
Fortitude Shards are found by looting the treasure chests which are hidden around the areas that you will get to cross throughout the main Story. Alternatively, you can also trade Rafale Coins with Sierokarte to get Fortitude Shards.
Upon having a decent number of Fortitude Shards, you can go and talk to Blacksmith to get the option to upgrade weapons. Select the weapon that you wish to upgrade and then set the level to which you want to enhance it using Fortitude Shards. Each level will consume 1x Fortitude Shard in the beginning but the required amount of Fortitude Shards will gradually increase for higher-level weapons.
Along with the consumption of Fortitude Shards for weapon upgrades, Blacksmith will also charge 200 Rupies as an Upgrade Cost. Additionally, you will also be able to upgrade the weapons of the characters at Restoration Crystals which are found throughout the main story and pretty hard to miss.
It is best to keep the weapons upgraded especially for the characters that are in your party to have an advantage in battles.
