    Default Harbinger Weapon Question

    I've seen other players at level 60 with the Harbinger weapons, their visual has been upgraded from the weapons I use. I looked on the soul description on the website and saw concept art for other intermediate forms of the weapons other than just an improved one at level 60. So my question is, are there intermediate forms of the weapons and at what level do they kick in? Or, how many points in the soul do I need to upgrade the looks of the weapons?

    There are 3 weapon buffs and 3 graphics, 1 for each. If Trion ever intended to have more weapons and or stages of them, they did not make it into the release.

    The graphics for the various weapons do actually change. I think it's based upon level but I'm not entirely sure.
    Nope.

    You start with the sword buff, 16points in the roots gets you the axe buff and 41points in the tree gets you the Scythe buff. Each do something different.

    Primal is correct. There are several graphics for each of the weapon buffs alone.

    Each one "improves" in detail and "effective" aesthetic the higher you level (although I don't remember at which levels).

    The last of course is at Level 60 (for now).

    Anyone know the exact levels that the weapon appearance updates? I'm level 45 and I think I'm still using the same from level 1.

    The graphics for each blade are different for each rank. Now that you don't physically train your rank it's harder to tell. But here's the levels according to Rifthead. Not sure if the graphic upgrades with every single rank but it might.

    Reaper's Blade:

    1 - 41
    2 - 47
    3 - 51
    4 - 54
    5 - 57
    6 - 60

    Lightning Blade:

    1 - 1
    2 - 4
    3 - 8
    4 - 12
    5 - 18
    6 - 24
    7 - 30
    8 - 36
    9 - 42
    10 - 48
    11 - 51
    12 - 54
    13 - 57
    14 - 60

    Luminous Weapon

    1 - 16
    2 - 22
    3 - 28
    4 - 34
    5 - 40
    6 - 46
    7 - 51
    8 - 54
    9 - 57
    10 - 60

    I believe the graphics stay the same until 53 then change at 54, 57, 60 with the ranks.
