Weapon level and armor level
"Level" is a classification used for basic weapons and armors that originally appeared in Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim and its expansion.
In Majesty, weapons were divided into 7 tiers, and armor was divided into 6 tiers. These tiers correspond to the "levels" on this wiki. In the early stages of Heroes of Ardania, the weapons and armors available in-game entirely consisted of these sets of items. Over time, however, new weapons and armors whose names did not appear in Majesty were added to the game. The addition of these new items, which had increasingly powerful stats and stat bonuses, relegated the original weapons and armor to basic items. As such, weapons and armor that are classified by a "level" are generally weaker than items that do not have a "level" classification.
