Primary and Secondary Weapon Arcanes

You can now add Arcane Slots to your Primary and Secondary weapons, and fill the Slots with new Arcanes that enhance and reward diverse gameplay. 

You’ll be able to get the Arcane Slot Unlockers from Steel Path Honors, whereas the Arcanes themselves drop from Acolytes in the Steel Path! The spawn frequency of Acolytes is also being increased, meaning you’ll get more Steel Essence, as well as more chances for the Arcane you want. All Acolytes will drop them!  

There are 6 Arcanes (3 Primary, 3 Secondary) that you’ll be able to rank up and put to put into the new Slots

Each Arcane slot can be bought from Teshin for 15 Steel Essence. Each Primary or Secondary Weapon will need 1 Arcane slot.

if you want to max the Arcane to get the maximum benefits you will need 21 Arcanes.

Happy Farming Arcanes and Steel Essences!!
