Weapons and armor have absolutely no impact on your stats at all. You could also buy Metin2 yang for your characters. Actually, you're to slot Sigils in them, almost like the materia system from Final Fantasy 7, only without the angst driven, spiky haired hero to wield them. These Sigils can be moved to other pieces of equipment any time you'd like, therefore you won't find yourself discussing over whether or not you should take your new, crappy looking, but much more uber shiny over your cooler, more badassy, but shittier current equipment. Our eagerness to hop right into the bush and start your unadulterated massacre of the local bear population, which was waylaid by the token tutorial phase. To prove that you were strong enough, and a bit crazy enough, to kill bears with only a knife, you were tasked with aerating straw dummies and crates.
This feature will at least make sure that while everyone will be running around with the same epic tier Sigils by end game, they at least won't all look the same. As far as your Metin2 weapons are loaded, prior experiences told you that the best tool for killing bears is not only a knife, it's also the manliest. Presented with the choice of becoming a Warrior or Spellcaster, Rogue, you insist that Rogue would best fit your bear stalking nature. After dispatching these boring objects with extreme prejudice only a Rogue can exhibit, you have to meet the captain. After waiving off our roguish wit and charm, the kind female captain reminded you that the ship you were traveling through time and space with was currently under attack by some weird looking creatures. You have finished all wonderful reading. Thank you!
