In addition to the new characters, KOEI has also detailed how both weapons and mounts can be used to customize a character. Weapons and mounts include ranks, elements and levels and, by combining 2 of a similar type, it can lead to the item increasing in power and possibly obtaining a compatibility bonus. A compatibility bonus can allow the item to break past the level cap and add additional abilities.
