Empowerments are special stat-improving effects that originate from Bard weapons or equipment. These buffs have a short duration, but can be extended by wearing certain Bard equipment.

Types[edit | edit source]

Weapon Empowerments[edit | edit source]

Weapon Empowerments are generally given by Symphonic weapons. These have 4 levels, with each level increasing in power. Only 1 level of the same empowerment can be active, and when receiving multiple levels of the same empowerment, only the highest level version will be kept. After receiving this type of empowerment, a bard orb will orbit around the player, with their color representing the empowerment type and the size representing the empowerment level.
