Soulbound Weapons[edit | edit source]

Soulbound weapons are weapons that can be bound to a character. They get new powers, if you complete different achievements and you will also get more information about the weapon if you advance it. Each weapon can only be bound to specific classes and the different classes will get unique powers from the weapon. If the weapon is bound to character, only this character can use it, but you can sever the binding and lose all advancement you made with this weapon. They have a larger information window with a pen and ink style illustration of the weapon. They can't be enchanted and they will get a bonus from every weapon talent even if it wouldn't qualify for the talent.
