Enhancing and Transforming

You can get good weapons and equipment by completing episode quests, event fragments, and defeating powerful enemies guarding sealed chests. You can further improve these items by Enhancing them. Enhancing increases the stats of the weapon/equipment while also giving it additional effects and parameter boosts to the character equipping it. Transforming in the other hand is literally upgrading the weapon/ equipment to an entirely new and more powerful version. Not all weapons/ equipment can be transformed.
