September '20 Update Discussion - Upgrade Kits & Platinum Ore

#1
Information 
With the September '20 update we received new craftable weapon upgrade kits & crates, a new tier of ores (Platinum), and some changes to ring erode rates. Overall these are some good changes to the crafting system in order to make previous rings more appealing as well as adding an additional way for crafting to be a part of the gear progression grind with weapon upgrades.

The wiki has been updated with the relevant info in Crafting and Special Items, but here's an overview of the changes.

Weapon Upgrades Kits & Crates
Making Weapon Upgrades Kits is a 2-step process that involves first making the appropriate Crate and then making the Upgrade Kit from combining the appropriate Crate and ingots. There are 4 tiers of kits and crates and they offer the ability to add bonuses to weapons within a certain level range. 
  • Level   50-100: +1 STR, Oak CratesWeapon Upgrade Kit I
  • Level 101-200: +1 STR, Willow Crates & Weapon Upgrade Kit II
  • Level 201-300: +2 STR, Rowan Crates & Weapon Upgrade Kit III
  • Level 301-400: +3 STR, Palm Crates & Weapon Upgrade Kit IV
The higher the level the weapon is, the more times it can be upgraded. You can see how many times it has been upgraded from the weapon buff (how many +'s it has) or how many upgrades are left when you try to upgrade it in the crafting window.


Platinum Ore, Ingot, & Ring
A new tier of ore has been added to the game to replace gold as the highest level ore. It is currently unknown which area this ore can be found and mined. With the ingots made from this ore you can now craft a Platinum Ring with the following stats:
  • Level 220: +3% STR & +3% HP, lasts 700 hits before eroding

Erode Rates
Erode rates have faced a very welcome change by being increased dramatically. Each of the existing rings have at least doubled in durability, and in some cases quadrupled.
  • Level     1: Stone RingBefore: 25 Hits, After: 100 Hits
  • Level   10: Bronze RingBefore: 50 Hits, After: 200 Hits
  • Level   55: Iron RingBefore: 100 Hits, After: 300 Hits
  • Level 130: Gold RingBefore: 200 Hits, After: 500 Hits


And that's it for the overview. Feel free to comment with any missing/incorrect information!

Generally speaking, the higher the level the weapon is, the more times it can be upgraded.

More specifically, you can see how many times each weapon can be upgraded from the player inventory. To see how many times it has been upgraded you can either work it out from the weapon buff (how many +'s it has), or when you try to upgrade the weapon in crafting it will show how many upgrades are left.

When trading upgraded weapons with other players, tap on the item in the trade UI and it's possible to figure it out from the weapon +buff
