    Hi so i pulled an Archer UW based --- Marcena of Aim UW and I was wondering if I should keep it or grind it? It's unique option is something that caught my eye but when i compared my stats with UW with full bd set vs without UW with full bd set... it's significantly inferior. Is general UWs for keeps or for grind?

    (atm, i made it equip my low level archer and switched back to full bd since i'm undecided yet

    (the tags are big mood)
    (they're called CUWs by the way, Class Unique Weapons)

    Erm - generally for the Archer class I don't keep CUWs as I'd rather have the hero's specific UW itself, but they're a decent replacement for archers if you don't have their UW yet because of 3 rune slots + basic stats bonus. Kinda weird you'd find the BD raid gear better, though. Did you enhance the CUW all the way to your hero's level? It scales with the hero's level IIRC.

    I'd keep. Anyway, they only give 25 UW fragments which is super pathetic.

    ohh i see, i didn't know they're called like that hehe thanks for informing me!

    not really? my main archer's lvl 66 but i could only lvl 50 the CUW bc i ran out of fodder ;;;; anyway, when i compared them, the CUW only add stats on the attack in the common section and the rest dropped as if i didn't equip anything in the weapon's area. So i decided to remove it and just replaced it with my bd gear. though i decided to get the uw of my main archer so :'D

    What? 25?! Urgh thats not even worth grinding i was hoping to get 250 out of it y i k e s

    sflr my replying game is too strong.

    Well, you're using T6 weapon on archer, right? If you only lvl 50 the CUW, it's kinda like comparing a T5 weapon with a T6 weapon. Some people do prefer using raid gear because of the neat substats, though, so just pick whatever floats your boat.
    Not that it's a very important boat right now since you got the UW.

    Yeah, 25. I typically don't use CUWs at all but the give-back ratio is just so poor I don't know what to do with them. Start a game to see how many stars you can get them up to I guess.

    oh i see, so that's how it is hahah i didn't realize that ;;;; uhm, would its fragments go up if ever you get them to 1* and up? or it's just the same?

    also it's okay hehe i dont mind i'm kinda busy with irl since finals around the corner so i'm slow in replying too

    They go up, though I don't have a list of the exact returns. 1* is 50 fragments, I'm not sure about 2* and up - they give more than 25 frags for 1 star because they factor in possible failures when upgrading.

    All the best!
