RO2 HoningSystem

The Honing menu.

The Honing System is a special refinement system for weapons. Honing will randomly increase a particular stat on an item, depending on the item grade. The random numbers applied are different based on the rarity of the item. Additional random options and rates are different according to the item’s quality.[1]

Each weapon can only be honed once. Weapon descriptions will now show a star level system and if it is possible for it to be honed.

How to Hone

  1. Open the Honing menu to begin the process.
  2. Add the weapon and honing item.
  3. Press the "Start Honing" button.

A specific option increase will be added depending on an item’s rarity. (General-level items cannot be used in Honing.) Items that are at least Magic level rarity have a possibility to get a prefix option. Once the prefix option is applied, the other option rate will be applied with a higher rate compared to if the general option was applied. Given option type and state rate will be decided based on item's quality. Better quality items will get more stats and options. If you use a supplementary item, the chance to get the written option becomes higher.[2]
