Upgrades and Enhancement Guide for Assassin's Creed Valhalla provides an overview of the options to better your Equipment. Upgrades for AC:V are a way to improve your gear, but all armor and weapons can also be Enhanced so that they are of increased quality.
What is an Upgrade in AC:V?
Upgrades in Assassin's Creed Valhalla are direct protection / damage improvements that can be performed from the pause menu anywhere in the world. Upgrades will only boost the base pre-determined stats of the weapon or armor that you have improved. Upgrade tiers are locked behind equipment quality, that is improved by performing Enhancements. So, a basic weapon may only be upgraded three times, whilst a Superior weapon may be upgraded up to 6 times instead. Upgrades are done with ?? materials.
What is an Enhancement in AC:V?
"Bringing ingots to the Settlement's forge will allow Gunnar to enhance armor and weapons. Doing so will unlock Rune Slots, increase the pieces's Upgrade Limit and may improve its Appearance"
Enhancements are Quality or Rarity improvements performed on Weapons and Armor. Enhancements may only be done at a Blacksmith, and will enable the weapon or armor to be upgraded beyond its original limits. Enhancing a weapon will not boost its base stats, but will instead add upgrade levels, Rune slots, and grant new appearances. Enhancement is done with Ingot Crafting Materials. There are four tiers of quality: Fine, Superior, Flawless and Mythical.
