9Dragons Collections Guide



9Dragons Collections Guide by 2shotkiller

You can access available connections in the ‘Living’ tab of your character screen (just press L on your keyboard). There are Collectible Collections and Resource Collections,filed according to type and the merchant you trade them in at. As you advance in level, more collections will become available to you, as most of them have a minimum level requirement.

To add items to a collection, just open your inventory and drag and drop the items from your bag to their slot in the collection window.
Once you have filled up all slots, you can visit the respective merchant and collect your reward.
Rewards you can obtain include non-dungeon elixirs, blood essence, weapons, clothes and accessories.

Nuggets

Nuggets are weapon ornaments that can be placed in weapon slots. Nuggets are named after metals and various metals add various bonuses to your weapons: crit rate, attack rate, damage increase, block rate, etc. There are two different types of nuggets for kung fu and chi kung weapons so be careful about that. They are marked as (Physical) and (Chi Kung).

Nuggets come in five ‘qualities’: poor, fair, good, fine and perfect (the have one, two, three, four metal bars or cover the entire slot square). Poor nuggets can be bought from any general store. Fair nuggets are random mob drops. Good and fine ones can be found looting dungeons.

One of each these lower quality nuggets is needed in order to create a perfect one, which is of the highest quality. Once you have each of the lower level nuggets of a type, you can exchange them for a perfect nugget at the Craft Merchant.

Perfect Copper Nugget = 100 dmg increase (10, 30, 50, 70 from poor, fair, good, fine)
Perfect Brass Nugget = maximum weapon dmg increased by 200 (10, 50, 100, 150 from poor, fair, good, fine)
Perfect Bronze Nugget = 100 attack rating (10, 30, 50, 70 from poor, fair, good, fine)
Perfect Gold Nugget = 10% crit rate (1%, 3%, 5%, 7% from poor, fair, good, fine)
Perfect Iron Nugget = increases balance (numbers not specified)
Perfect Steel Nugget = 200 block rate (10, 50, 100, 150 from poor, fair, good, fine)

Talismans

Talisman are wardrobe ornaments that can only be combined on slotted decos. They increase resistance to various types of special damage in game and are thus useful in PvP.

Talismans come in five ‘qualities’: poor (3% resistance), fair (5%), good (7%), fine (10%) and perfect (15% resistance). Poor talismans can be bought from any general store. Fair talismans are random mob drops. Good and fine ones can be found looting dungeons.

One of each these lower quality talismans is needed in order to create a perfect one, which is of the highest quality. Once you have each of the lower level talismans of a type, you can exchange them for a perfect talisman at the Craft Merchant.

Ice Talismans = Yin Resistance
Fire Talismans = Yang Resistance
Ghastly Flower = Soul Resistance
Giant Bear = Body Resistance

Groove Cutters

Groove Cutters can be combined with weapons (along with separators) to decrease their level. There are three levels of groove cutters: narrow, double and triple groove cutters. The narrow ones decrease the weapon by 4 levels and can be bought from the general store. The double groove cutters are random drop mobs and decerase weapon level by 8.

A narrow and double groove cutter can be combined with a Blood Essence at the Craft Merchant in order to obtain a triple groove cutter that can decrease weapon level by 12.

For hermit weapons, you need to use hermit groove cutters.

9. Merchant Collections

COLLECTION MATERIALS

Flowstones and Golden Threads can be traded in at any grind map merchant at a 5:1 ratio for the higher level ones. Thus, 5 low level flowstones will give you 1 middle level flowstone and 5 middle level flowstones will give you 1 high level flowstone. The same goes for golden threads. So 1 high level needs 25 low levels to be formed in a two-step exchange (low->middle & middle->high).

Flowstones are needed for the Merchant Weapon collections and golden threads for the Wan Daye def clothes collections.

MERCHANT’S WEAPON

– All merchants weapon have the critical rate increased 1000/10000 (that is, 10% crit rate).
– Merchant’s weapons are required in the High level weapon collections along with pieces of steel and blood dragon [new] weapons.
– They are obtained from the merchants in the respective maps (see second post for locations), by combining weapons from the smithy of the same type and level with flowstones of various levels (for example a GB1 staff from the smithy with the necessary amounf of flowstones will give you a GB1 Merchant’s Staff). The exception are low level bracers, which require a higher level bracer to be used in the collection. I don’t know if this is a bug or not.
– You can find these collections under the Resource tab on your Living window in the character screen (press L on your keyboard).

That being said, I will list only the flowstones requirement for the various level weapons below.

Zhengzhou/Shi Zhang

OC1 weapons: 5 flowstones low level
OC11 weapons: 2 flowstones middle level
RC9 weapons: 5 flowstones middle level

Jinan/Datong

RL11 weapons: 8 flowstones middle level
SM3 weapons: 3 flowstones high level

Nanchang/Hangzhou

GB1 weapons: 5 flowstones high level
GB11 weapons: 10 flowstones high level


Liaodong

FC4 weapons: 15 flowstones high level


North Sea Icy Palace

GL4 weapons: 10 flowstones high level

10. High level weapon Collections

The collections become available at cheng 4 of their respective level and earn you cheng 6 weapons. You can choose one of three possible rewards with different stats.
– The rewards are one of the three types of weapons: 15% crit weapon, 10% crit weapon with 10% chance of bleed, 10% crit weapon with 10% chance of disorientation)

– The basic formula for the weapon is: merchant’s weapon of required level (the 10% crit weapons of the Merchant’s Collection) + Blood Dragon [New] weapon of required level (green weapons from mob/dungeon drops) and 5 pieces of steel (also mob drops). For any weapon you want to pick, you need the two ‘ingredient weapon’ of the same type (ex. EC6 spear requires Merchant’s RC9 spear and Blood Dragon [New] GB12 Spear).

– While the EC and FC weapons are obtained from Wan Daye, the Master weapons will be traded in at the clan base, from the NPC that also sells clan clothes. In each clan base, you will find the primary and secondary clan weapons, as well as bracers
