As we announced a couple weeks ago, we plan to implement 25 stars in the upcoming v197 update on July 25th. We also mentioned that we were still finalizing the details for this system and how it would impact certain equipment.
After a lot of discussion about the current state of equipment and taking into consideration future plans for growth, we’ve decided on the following details regarding Gollux and Sweetwater:
- Lv. 138+ Gollux equipment will be able to go up to 25 stars.
- Sweetwater Gloves, Boots, Belt, and Capes will be limited to 15 stars.
- All other Sweetwater equipment not mentioned above will be able to go up to 25 stars.
- Transposed and non-Transposed Sweetwater equipment will behave the exact same way.
All other items will follow standardized Star Force rules whose details will be included in our upcoming patch notes.
We hope this clears up some speculation and discussion around this topic.
