|*||This is the new character screen, it is a littlebit different than SWLs Charscreen but Covers most of the points of the original. But it provides Information in a more compact way, easier to access you see both you abilities (of your primary weapon), your level, title, rank and items at once.|
Notice the 4 Buttons in the screen. The Wardrobe is now a new mechanic called "Dressing Room", where you can select, preview and buy costumes and parts. "Sprints/Pets" opens up the same window like in TSW. "Abilities" will open up the Wheel Replacement and "Upgrade" will show the upgrade Window.
Note that Gear still follows some of the original rules. Red is still better then yellow, yellow is better then purple, purple better then blue and blue better then green.
Notice the numbers on the items?
|Here is an example on how upgrading things work. You have a slot on the upper left and 5 Slots on the bottom right. The item you want to upgrade is placed in the single slot on top and the items you want to use to upgrade the item are placed in the 5 slots below. Not that you sacrifice these items to empower the one item above.
Once you start placing items in the 4 slots you get a display of the amount of XP the upgraded item will get. In this case +500 XP, boosting this Neck Talisman from Level 11 to Level 14. That´s because the item I sacrifice is a special upgrade item I got as an daily reward.
You get a preview what Stats change and how on the upper right.
|*||MK levels still exist in SWL. You can recognize MK Levels by little dots on the bottom of an item. Here is my inventory from level 26. You see that every item I have slotted has a little yellow dot on the bottom of the item´s icon.|
This indicates MK I.
The only exception is the talisman in the head slot.
Two dots means MK II.
Because I never made it far enough into TSW to even see an MK item and was not able to find a single guide or explanation about that system I am not able to compare it.
However I have found a couple of MK II items in SWL and had the impression that they have different stats than the MK I items.
