How to improve the quality of Weapon?

Blacksmith’s Whetstone Blacksmith’s Whetstone is a currency item that can be used to improve the quality of a weapon. A weapon is an item whose primary purpose is to deal damage. The weapon includes Maces, Sceptres, Axes, Swords, Bows, Claws, Daggers, Staves, Wands, and Fishing Rods.

The physical damage values of the weapon are improved by the percentage quality, additive with any local physical damage modifiers on the item.

Right-click Blacksmith's Whetstone then left click a weapon to apply it. Each Blacksmith's Whetstone applied to weapon will increase its quality by up to 5% depending on its rarity: improves the quality of normal items by 5%, magic items by 2%, and rare and unique items by 1%. The maximum quality is 20%.

Increasing the quality of weapon also makes crafting sockets and links with Jeweller’s Orb Jeweller’s Orb and Orb of Fusing Orb of Fusing easier. The item's quality is no longer consumed when using an Orb of Fusing or a Jeweller's Orb on it. Each 1% quality improves the result by 1%. This makes obtaining many sockets and links 20% more likely on 20% quality items.

Blacksmith's Whetstone Vendor Recipes

1. Beastcrafting crafting recipe: 30% quality

Beastcrafting is a method of crafting by sacrificing beasts to the blood altar in the Menagerie. Each beastcrafing recipe requires four beasts to be sacrificed, with most of them requiring one specific Red Beast and three Rare Beasts. The four chosen beasts are released into the arena surrounding the blood altar and must be killed to complete the recipe. If the player dies during the attempt, the recipe fails and the beasts are lost.

If an item is created, the resulting item level is equal to the level of the main beast sacrificed. Recipes that create unique items can generate league-specific uniques. The table below displays the resulting crafts when sacrificing to the blood altar.
