Equipment has been a central part of the MMO experience for years now, so it's no surprise that Tales of Fantasy
has a system built around the idea of saving equipment on your character. It's called the Fusion system
and works in a fairly straightforward manner that almost sounds like a combination of crafting and character advancement.
Basically, if you've got a piece of equipment it can be fused onto your character, permanently adding its stats to your character and opening up that equip slot for a new equipment item. It's a simple idea, but one that effectively doubles the amount of gear you can wear. Higher level fusions require more Soul Containers, which are the sole item used for a fusion and can be acquired through story quests or instances. We're curious to hear what other design ideas are floating around in Tales of Fantasy
, because if they're all this interesting it's going to be a game we spend some time with.
