Requirements Hilt Binding Lv. 1

Weaponry Research enhances HIT/ATK of the Blacksmith and increases the chance of successfully Forging a weapon. The benefits of Weaponry Research are applied to all weapons that are equipped and all weapon creation attempts.


  • The bonuses are apparently scaled according to your job level.
  • The ATK bonus works like all other Weapon Masteries.
  • Despite popular belief, this skill does not increase the rate of success on upgrades performed past the safe limit at upgrading NPCs.

  • Patch (2015 Feb. 25)
    • [Weaponry Research] and [Hilt Binding] are fixed for Super Novices. The skills were not adding the corresponding damage.
  • RO-minilogoRenewal Update (2009 Jun. 17)
    • The hit bonus behaves in the same way that the Accuracy bonus for Bash does. As a result, it does not appear in the status window.
