RF Online Info: Equipment
RF Online's equipment system is sort of similar to that of Diablo 2. That is, each weapon and armor type has its own unique base statistics. Some pieces of equipment have magical effects, or item modifiers, that alter the statistics and effects of the equipment. For example, a "Strong Broad Sword" is exactly like a normal Broad Sword, except that it deals 10% extra damage.
Intense equipment is a special type of magical equipment that effectively acts as the next stronger item of the same type. So, for example, an "Intense Broad Sword" (level 10) is about as strong as a normal Valkyrie Sword (level 12), which is the next stronger sword.
